Wait. Shouldn’t It Be Easier Than Ever To Find Someone?

Jessie Rosen - October 9, 2014

I was having a conversation about these modern dating times the other day (slash every day, but specifically this Tuesday). I said something like, “do you think we’re better off now than we were before?” to which my friend replied, “I don’t know, but I feel like it should be easier than ever to find something.

Today Is My Wedding Day, and I Feel…

Jessie Rosen - May 10, 2014

photo credit: avia rosen …every single emotion in the canon of emotions that can be felt, plus a few brand news ones that I’m sure I invented this morning around 6AM when I sprang out of bed. And yet, I’m oddly calm and peaceful right now. It’s before the day has officially begun. I’m sitting in a gorgeous hotel room in an impeccably-restored Inn, in …
