Let's be honest. There are more than a few areas in life where a crash course would be helpful. And dating is certainly one of those area. For some of you, dating is something you just fall into - you are old enough to date, so you do. But just because you are the right age and in the right stage of life, doesn't mean you know how to go about it. You need to learn the basics. You need to understand the fundamentals. You need a crash course on dating, and REAL LIFE wants to help.


Feb 13 // Not 2 Be// Breaking up, done at the right time, and the right way, doesn't have to

break either person involved.

Feb 20 // 3rd Wheel // Single isn't second rate, and relationship status isn't the point

Feb 27 // Groups of 4 or More // The best Dates of your life are with friends.
