Even if the group chat is supportive of your decision to ride out the night during your ferocious texting update while your date is in the bathroom, sometimes you simply have to surrender. Dating can be a chaotic journey in ghosting, drafting the perfect texts, rescheduling happy hour drinks and wondering how to break up with someone who you don't even know if you're technically in a relationship with.

Is her cavalier attitude about the mouse that ran across her kitchen stove an easy breezy, fun and flirty personality trait or is there an unhinged infestation lurking in the cabinets? You never know until you swipe!
