One of the most common slams of the Tinder experience is being bombarded with gross messages from guys who take a match as the perfect opportunity to ask women all kinds of strange sexual questions.
The ideal answer to this problem would be for people to stop sending inappropriate, unwanted messages.
But apparently a lot of people are still struggling with how to communicate with others without mentioning their penis, so other measures have to be taken.

Remember The Beach?
You know, the 2000 movie that came out just as Leo-mania was at its peak?
Well, the beach off of The Beach is this incredible-looking secret, uninhibited hideaway. Safe to say, it’s so stunning because it hasn’t been turned into some mad holiday resort.
Anyway, 18 years later, people are still obsessed with finding The Beach’s beach because it’s the ultimate #travellust.
Which is why it’s about to be shut down.
According to the Phuket Gazette, Maya Bay will soon have to start turning tourists away because they’re destroying the local ecosystem.

Imagine a world in which the world of dating was filled with open communication and compassion for other human beings.
That’d be lovely, right?
A new term proposes a kinder approach.
Created by International Business Times, caspering is simply being a friendly ghost.
So yes, you can feel free to ghost – to cut off all communication and disappear off the face of the earth. But you have to be nice about it, preferably… Read the full story
If you’ve always dreamed of going to South America but have never had the cash to do so, listen up.
Because you can now get to Argentina for under £260.
Budget Airline Norwegian Air has just launched the UK’s first low-cost route to the continent.
The 14-hour non-stop flight is going from London Gatwick to Buenos Aires, dubbed the ‘party capital of South America’.
In order to nab the cheapest fares, you’ve got to be pretty flexible with dates; the £259.90 tickets are only available on 16 and 19 March at the moment, with other return flights going for up to £700 (still cheap compared to BA’s £1,000).
Food and luggage aren’t included in… Read the full story
New research has found that females with asthma who use their inhaler in an emergency – rather than take long-term medication – may have more problems conceiving.
Researchers at the University of Adelaide in Australia looked at data from 5,000 women in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Ireland who were in the early stages of their first pregnancies. Each was asked if they suffered from asthma and which medications they used.
10% of the women questioned had asthma, and researchers found that those who only used their inhaler to alleviate the symptoms of an asthma attack took longer to get pregnant.
Those women using short-term medication – like inhalers –… Read the full story

Last week, ASOS announced that it was bringing out its first-ever sportswear range.
It was only a matter of time, given how fitness-obsessed we’ve all become and now much we love going to the pub in gym leggings.
And today, the ASOS 4505 collection has finally dropped.
Whether you’re looking for activewear for every day living or you actually want to buy some new gains garms, there’s something for everyone.
We’re talking compression leggings. Seamless yoga pants. Hidden pockets for phones, keys and gym cards.
And it’s pretty reasonably priced, with bottoms going for around £25 and tops from £10 – so you can mix and match to your heart’s content.
Oh, and… Read the full story
Oh look, yet another place we now desperately need to visit.
It’s absolutely dreamy – and not just because of the location.
Svart is designed to be environmentally friendly, producing all of its own energy and using 85% less energy per year compared to your average modern hotel.
That’s thanks to a roof covered with solar panels, with each bit of the hotel strategically placed to best use the sun’s energy throughout the day… Read the full story

Meet Winter, Sprig, River and Rain.
They’re just four tiny Pacific Parrotlet birds who have won the hearts of thousands on Instagram with their tales of love.
They spend all day preening and caring for each other, and owner Rupa has been capturing their moments of intimacy for all to see.
‘When we welcomed these tiny creatures into our family, I had no idea the impact they would have on me,’ she writes on Bored Panda.
‘At only 4-5″ tall, these tiny parrots pack the personality of their Amazon cousins into their little bodies.
‘I’m captivated by their beauty, their intelligence and their sweetness. The love the pairs share is as big as their… Read the full story
Just last week, Australians were clambering over each other to get a hold of the limited edition Cadbury Caramilk bars.
Cara-what now? They’re basically like a Caramac bar, with ‘a golden blend of caramelised white chocolate’ and they hadn’t been seen in Australia for decades.
Cadbury relaunched them on a limited run and Australians caused a right old ruckus, buying them up and selling them on eBay for 10 times the price.
Some of those greedy gannets may be regretting their decision now after Cadbury announced a recall for the bars, after discovering that some of the chocolate may contain…plastic.
Cadbury posted on their Facebook recalling 190g… Read the full story

You’ve probably seen Kelsey Maggart’s amazing photos on social media.
She’s been sharing professional-looking photos which were actually snapped down her local arts and craft store. Fake flowers tend to look rubbish – but these portraits could have been taken in some Kew greenhouse.
Just goes to show that if you actively look for beauty, you’ll find it in the least obvious places.
That mantra’s inspired others to have a go at the ‘Hobby Lobby Challenge’.
It’s simple really – get on down to a craft shop and take the most epic photos you can.
And people are really nailing it.

Staycations are so in right now.
You don’t have to go far afield for a bit of adventure, love, and wild sex, because Manchester offers it all.
The northern town promises to give you the full experience, whether you’re looking for ‘the one’, a one night stand, or a menage a trois.
But don’t get too attached, because it’s also the city you’re most likely to get cheated on.
Who knew Mancs were such heartbreakers?

Chinese New Year 2018 is a worldwide celebration and will soon be upon us with parties, parades and general merriment across the globe.
For those celebrating in the UK there will be all kinds of things to do – the best of which you can find here – and thousands of gifts will be given across the globe to mark the occasion.Take a look at the snazzy spaceship style lodge opening beneath a glacier

This is seven-year-old Eliza Brichto.
She’s hoping to become a Zara kidswear model.
But she doesn’t want to be snapped in their frilly dresses and cute knits; Eliza wants to model their boys’ range.
And she’s written to the Spanish brand explaining why.
‘Dear Zara, My name is Eliza and I’m seven-years-old,’ the letter begins.
‘I’m writing to you because I would like to model for Zara boys.
‘You might think that it’s quite weird that a girl wears boys clothes but anyway let me tell you the story. When I was four, I looked at Zara girls and I wasn’t really sure about the girls’ clothes but then I had a little look… Read the full story
You’d expect to have to keep an eye out for snakes on the ground when walking through fields in Australia.
However, you probably wouldn’t expect to have to keep watch for reptiles balancing on fences.
The Wildlife Land Trust have shown that perhaps you ought to, after posting a video of a Tasmanian tiger snake slithering elegantly along a fence, at Bangor Farm in south east Tasmania.
We’ve got to be honest – it looks like great core work for the reptile.
You go, hun. Torch those abs.
If you’re playing it anyway and you’re good at it, you might as well be paid to do it.
Fifa fanatics who have mastered the ‘finesse shot and lob pass’ can apply to become a coach and impart their wisdom on the less savvy.
After the Call of Duty professional player and coach service was introduced, fans felt the next game to offer a mentor should be the most popular football game.
You could make a decent amount of money too, being paid a minimum of £15 an hour.
Anyone else have a sudden urge to learn the ins and outs of Fifa right now? (If you don’t already)

Is there anything more loved than ramen?
(That was rhetorical, please don’t answer.)
Last year the world was gifted with ramen flavoured Pringles, and this year we’ve been blessed with chicken nuggets and chips flavoured ramen.
Doesn’t life often feel like a real merry-go-round of culinary delights?
Nissin – the makers of popular Japanese ramen brand, Cup Noodle – has just launched a chicken nuggets and French fries flavour.
As reported by Rocket News 24, the product dropped on 12 February and it’s part of their ‘Big’ range of noodle cups, which is larger than normal.

Gwilym Pugh is a Cardiff-born GQ model who has worked for some of the world’s biggest brands.
And although he might look the very essence of confidence, he hasn’t always been that way.
He used to a seven stone-heavier life insurance salesman who worked from his spare bedroom.
He set up his own business at 21 and found himself doing very little exercise after having a knee injury.
‘At that time I was pretty overweight, working 12 hours a day, plagued with injuries which meant I couldn’t train at all,’ he tells the Mail Online.
‘The business was doing okay, but I decided I needed to get my life in… Read the full story
If you’re ever unfortunate enough to have a day where you’ve got both work and a festival to attend to and no time to change in between, don’t panic – because ASOS has got your back.
The fashion retailer has just started advertising its new SS18 collection with a photo of a model wearing what looks like a corporate work outfit…accessorised with an over-the-chest bumbag.
Obviously, the internet isn’t quite sure what to make of this ‘look’, and people have been posting some confused tweets in response.
One person wrote: ‘WHY IS SHE WEARING A BUMBAG LIKE THIS? Stop trolling us ASOS.’
When it comes to budgeting, it can feel like the fashion industry is out to get you.
You’re trying to save and there Topshop goes, bringing out collection after collection.
Even sale items are pricey.
But one label has your financial needs at the centre of their new business model.
Miss Pap has just launched an entire range called The Living Wage Wardbrobe – and everything costs £7.50.
Yep, from jackets and jeans to dresses and bobble hats, every single item in the collection has been reduced to under a tenner – with savings up to £30 on some items.
Biscoff ice cream exists and we don’t think we’ve ever been this excited about a dessert. Ever.
Just yesterday we revealed that Ben & Jerry’s has just released a new birthday cake flavour, which features cake batter ice cream, pink frosting, strawberry swirls and cake pieces.
But it seems the internet is more invested in the Lotus releases – which come in a variety of ice cream forms.
Firstly, we’ve got to burst your bubble by telling you that the Lotus Biscoff ice cream we’re about to show you is not yet available in the UK.
However, that doesn’t make the… Read the full story
