Woman posts awful 'tips' a guy sent her after a bad Tinder date. Love is dead.

If you've been single for any extended amount of time, then it's statistically likely you've been on a few bad dates. In most cases, a bad date is quickly over with and you never have to deal with that person again.

But in particularly harrowing examples, a bad date doesn't know how to take a hint, and they continue to torture you through extended communication.

In what can only be described as the least desired scenario, 24-year-old Kimberley Latham-Hawkesford went on a bad date with a man months ago, and just now received an unsolicited laundry list of things he didn't like about her.


The horrific series of messages were presented to Hawkesford as a list of "tips" detailing how she could self-improve.

In fact, he even said he'd check in with her a month after sending the message to see if she had implemented them. If she did follow his list, he would then "consider" going on a second date.

Truly, there is no excuse in hell for treating another person like this.

Imagine being so far up your own ass you'd send this to a girl 3 months after a date 🤦licensing@ladbiblegroup.com

This complete list is not only unasked for and deeply entitled and misogynistic, but it is full of contradictions. In one tip he instructs her to wear less makeup and go for a "more natural look," then he goes on to suggest she get lip fillers.

He spends an entire message berating her looks and personality, then tells her to be more confident because "confidence is sexy."

But truly, the most baffling part of his messy and disgusting message is the fact that he caps off paragraphs of insults with an opportunity to go on another date with him.

"If you take me on board I might consider another date. I will give you a month and get back in touch to see if this made a difference," is a string of sentences that should never be written AND sent to another human being.

Needless to say, there will be no second date.

Glenda moved to Houston from Ohio just before the pandemic hit. She didn't know that COVID-19-related delays would make it difficult to get her Texas driver's license and apply for unemployment benefits. She quickly found herself in an impossible situation — stranded in a strange place without money for food, gas, or a job to provide what she needed.

Alone, hungry, and scared, Glenda dialed 2-1-1 for help. The person on the other end of the line directed her to the Houston-based nonprofit Bread of Life, founded by St. John's United Methodist pastors Rudy and Juanita Rasmus.

For nearly 30 years, Bread of Life has been at the forefront of HIV/AIDS prevention, eliminating food insecurity, providing permanent housing to formerly homeless individuals and disaster relief.

Glenda sat in her car for 20 minutes outside of the building, trying to muster up the courage to get out and ask for help. She'd never been in this situation before, and she was terrified.

When she finally got out, she encountered Eva Thibaudeau, who happened to be walking down the street at the exact same time. Thibaudeau is the CEO of Temenos CDC, a nonprofit multi-unit housing development also founded by the Rasmuses, with a mission to serve Midtown Houston's homeless population.

Empathy. Compassion. Heart-to-heart human connection. These qualities of leadership may not be flashy or loud, but they speak volumes when we see them in action.

A clip of Joe Biden is going viral because it reminds us what that kind of leadership looks like. The video shows a key moment at a memorial service for Chris Hixon, the athletic director at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida in 2018. Hixon had attempted to disarm the gunman who went on a shooting spree at the school, killing 17 people—including Hixon—and injuring 17 more.

Biden asked who Hixon's parents were as the clip begins, and is directed to his right. Hixon's wife introduces herself, and Biden says, "God love you." As he starts to walk away, a voice off-camera says something and Biden immediately turns around. The voice came from Hixon's son, Corey, and the moments that followed are what have people feeling all their feelings.

Back in 2017, when white supremacist Richard Spencer was socked in the face by someone wearing all black at Trump's inauguration, it launched an online debate, "Is it OK to punch a Nazi?"

The essential nature of the debate was whether it was acceptable for people to act violently towards someone with repugnant reviews, even if they were being peaceful. Some suggested people should confront them peacefully by engaging in a debate or at least make them feel uncomfortable being Nazi in public.

The English language is constantly evolving, and the faster the world changes, the faster our vocabulary changes. Some of us grew up in an age when a "wireless router" would have been assumed to be a power tool, not a way to get your laptop (which wasn't a thing when I was a kid) connected to the internet (which also wasn't a thing when I was a kid, at least not in people's homes).

It's interesting to step back and look at how much has changed just in our own lifetimes, which is why Merriam-Webster's Time Traveler tool is so fun to play with. All you do is choose a year, and it tells you what words first appeared in print that year.

For my birth year, the words "adult-onset diabetes," "playdate," and "ATM" showed up in print for the first time, and yes, that makes me feel ridiculously old.

It's also fun to plug in the years of different people's births to see how their generational differences might impact their perspectives. For example, let's take the birth years of the oldest and youngest members of Congress:
