    17: 50 Shades of Breakups

    16 Red Light, Green Light: The Dating Edition

    16 Red Light, Green Light: The Dating Edition

    Mich and Nadine challenge each other to different dating scenarios to see if they think something is a red light (a red flag/reason to dump someone), a green light (go right ahead and keep on dating them)--or maybe something in between that makes you want to pump the breaks and slow down a bit. A few examples: they swapped Instagram handles with someone at a bar; they say I love you for the first time drunk but don't bring it up again sober; they eat sushi with a fork; you find out they have a criminal past; they are five figures in debt -- and so many more! Plus, “murder-suicide ghosting,” this week’s millennial dating term. Take our polls this week at @Heartsprained on Instagram!
