The Best of #ExciteYourPartnerIn4Words on Twitter

The latest hashtag trending on Twitter today is #ExciteYourPartnerIn4Words.

35 Ways Mindy Kaling Won the Internet in 2014

photo via @MindyKaling People often say they love Mindy Kaling because she is “relatable,” but we’re going to avoid that word because we think it’s kind of a backhanded compliment.

25 Romantic Comedies Turned Very, Very Scary

We’re suckers for a good Twitter meme, even if they do make us feel like the clumsy kid who always gets picks last in gym class (i.e. when we contribute to a meme in what we consider to be a hilarious fashion, and are met with resounding Twitter silence). But like the clumsy kid in […]
