Valentine’s Day is full of longstanding customs dating back across the centuries. However, its significance for Georgetown students refuses to be a stable one; this past weekend, both heterosexual and LGBTQ couples challenged traditional romantic norms in their effort to celebrate the holiday.

Unconventional Valentines

Valentine’s Day has a set of expectations and traditions compiled throughout the centuries.

Friends Sans Benefits

I’m a big fan of romantic comedies, but it’s difficult to find ones that aren’t horrible. When Harry Met Sallycomes as close to perfection as this genre will ever come. The concept doesn’t sound great: Billy Crystal (Harry) stars in a romantic comedy in which he isn’t in love with Meg[Read More…]

How to Stay Sane on Singles Awareness Day

I’ve spent the past semester writing about how we don’t have time for relationships, fail at asking others out on dates (or don’t even want to ask) and hook up in lieu of dating. I’ve written about the latter theory, commented on how women “dockblock” each other and found that[Read More…]

The first line of Pride and Prejudice — “It’s a truth universally acknowledged” — must be used in the most cliched manner possible to introduce anything even remotely related to the iconic work.
