Out of Work Strippers Launch Boober Eats, the Topless Meal Delivery Service

With so many people staying home and avoiding the nightmare that is the supermarket at the moment, meal delivery services like Deliveroo and Uber Eats are exploding in popularity. But a new player is threatening to take a stranglehold on the market, and frankly, we aren’t complaining. Dancers at the Lucky Devil Lounge in Portland, Oregon have launched a new meal delivery service that combines the convenience of fast-food with the pizazz of a strip club. That’s right, Boober Eats might just be good old-fashioned American ingenuity at it’s thriftiest.

Out of Work Strippers Launch Boober Eats, the Topless Meal ...

According to reports, once you order a meal online (generally pub grub and wings), Lucky Devil Lounge will get cooking immediately, dispatching two nearly-topless women in pasties to hand-out the goods. It all started as a joke on social media for Lucky Devil Lounge owner Shon Boulden, but after receiving hundreds of positive messages about the idea on St. Patrick’s Day, he decided to give it a shot.

“It’s crazy,” Boulden told the Oregonian. “We mutated our one business into a totally different style of business. All the calls, people are just giddy and fun. Sometimes it’s a surprise for someone, sometimes it’s a birthday, sometimes it’s people that are really stoned.”

While Boober Eats is a hilarious way to get in on the growing food delivery arena, Boulder’s initiative is actually doing a lot of good. About 25 of the original 80 Lucky Devil Lounge dancers are running Boober Eats deliveries after the club essentially shut down for patrons. What’s more, the strip club’s bouncers are also back to work, operating as drivers and security guards for the nearly topless delivery girls. If there’s one thing to be learned from the Boober Eats tale, it’s that amid a tireless tirade of negativity and despair, there are good stories everywhere.

God bless America.

Life Before Quarantine – Part 11

During quarantine I’ve been fairly productive. I get my energy from people but I really enjoy my alone time. My daughter agrees. We’re both perfectly happy being on our own. I was looking through some photos the other day and I got some great memories of when we were all allowed to come out and play. I thought I’d share some of them with you. I’ll run this series every week until I run out of photos! If you see yourself, hit me up!

I’m very fortunate to have met you all and enjoyed the times we had together. Thank you!

Enjoy!

15 Bumble Bio Ideas To Use During The Coronavirus That’ll Rack Up Matches

No pressure or anything, but what you write in your bio could mean the difference between a right or left swipe. IRL, you can catch someone’s attention with a flirty smile across a packed bar, a witty joke deployed via DM slide, or bold moves on the dance floor. On dating apps, however, you have a limited number of words (and photos) to make that crucial first impression. Dating apps are more crowded than ever these days, so check out these Bumble bio ideas to use during the coronavirus pandemic.

Odds are, you’re spending more time than ever swiping away now that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended social distancing. The key to attracting quality matches, of course, is to put your best foot forward — and a clever bio is a great way to show off your personality and sense of humor.

A warning: Now is not the time to test out your edgiest jokes. Kindness and respect are always welcome on dating apps — so please, steer clear of offensive jokes that make light of people who are sick, out of work, or on the front lines.

This is easier than you might think. Need some inspiration? The following bios are ready to use — all you have to do is hit copy and paste. Whether you’re searching for your soulmate or just a pen pal to casually flirt with, these bios are bound to rack up the matches.

4. Pros: looks decent in a face mask. Cons: spotty WiFi signal.

11. Tell me your go-to quarantine snack and we’ll go from there.

12. FYI, I make a mean quarantini.

13. Apparently, what you stock up on says a lot about you. For me, it’s coffee and wine.

14. Major points if you can send me the perfect coronavirus-meets-Tiger King meme.

15. There’s a 50/50 chance I’ll be wearing PJs on the bottom during our next virtual date. Just trying to kick things off on a note of pure honesty.

Can You Be In Love With More Than One Person At The Same Time?

Sometimes, falling in love can feel like riding in an Uber Comfort with a final destination in mind. Other times (like on this season of The Bachelor), the route to romance looks more like a Lyft Line with multiple stops. Whether you’re currently smooching more than one sweetie or you’re deeply invested in Pilot Pete’s love life, you might be wondering if it’s really possible to be in love with more than one person at the same time.

Nearing yet another colorful finale, bachelor Peter Weber (aka “Pilot Pete”) told Entertainment Tonight that he fell in love with not one, not two, but three of this season’s contestants. “This experience has shown me that there’s not just one soulmate out there,” Weber said. “I’ve definitely been able to give my heart to more than one person.”

While living in a mansion with a bunch of people who want to date you might not be all that relatable (or maybe it is! I don’t know your life), experts say falling for more than one flame is actually pretty common.

“A loving individual can certainly feel deeply in love with several people at once,” Dr. Carla Marie Manly, a clinical psychologist, tells Phicklephilly. “That said, the nature of real love would indicate that the person’s behaviors not, in any way, harm any of the people who are loved.”

If you and your boo(s) are in a consensual polyamorous relationship or have recently visited the option of opening up your relationship (or you’ve elected to live in a house full of people who are all dating your boyfriend), you may already candidly discuss seeing other people and how you envision your relationships unfolding. However, if all parties involved are looking for something monogamous, the experts share the importance of proceeding with extreme compassion and mindfulness.

While it can be cathartic to express your feelings, it’s crucial to understand how your words or actions may be interpreted. (Read: If you, like Pilot Pete, tell everyone you’re seeing that you want to marry them, they’ll likely be caught off guard when you call it off to be with someone else.)

In addition to being mindful of your actions, Manly recommends checking in with your emotions. While it’s possible to feel head over heels for Derek from accounting, Mara from improv, and your new gym buddy Alix, Manly says you could also be experiencing extreme attraction.

“It’s so important to differentiate between being in love and feeling connected to, attracted to, or aroused by a person you are dating,” Manly says. “Real love is generally built over time, whereas feelings of attraction and desire tend to arise early on in a relationship.”

According to dating coach and dating app expert Meredith Golden, when you’re dating around or swiping through apps, you might find a lot of people you’re attracted to. And that’s totally OK: Spending time with more than one person can help you better understand what you’re looking for from a relationship.

The more time you spend with each person, the easier it will be to ascertain which person is the best fit in the long run.

“It’s typical to like multiple people during the dating process,” Golden tells phicklephilly. “The reason I tell clients to date multiple people until they are ready to commit to one person is because it puts feelings in perspective.”

But as you start to develop more ardent feelings, Golden stresses being transparent about what you can realistically give your dates, like how much time you have to send with them and whether or not you’re seeing other people.

For Shula Melamed, MA, MPH, and well-being coach, falling in love with more than one person may change the types of relationships you were initially looking for. “Love is one thing, but living your life with another person doesn’t necessarily always align with a long-term partnership,” Melamed tells phicklephilly. “Be curious and see if you are on the same page and want the same things.”

If you’re wondering how to start the “I love you, but I also love other people” conversation, Melamed suggests communication with your partner(s) directly. Take them out on a date, turn off your phone, and ask about how they envision their future. You won’t know if they’re open to exploring different types of relationship dynamics until you talk about it. “Ask yourself if this person wants similar things to you,” Melamed says. “Do you converge on important topics and pursuits in life?”

Of course, if you’re looking for something monogamous, but you’ve found yourself catching feeling for more than one cutie, Manly says you should give yourself a little extra time and space to process. Once you’ve gotten clear on your needs and desires, spend one-on-one time with each person in a variety of situations, to see how your relationship weathers good times and bad.

“The more time you spend with each person, the easier it will be to ascertain which person is the best fit in the long run,” Manly says.

Remember: Although Pilot Pete has to make a choice by the season finale, you have both time and agency to decide what type(s) of relationships are right for you.

15 Things A Guy Will Do…When He’s Got A Side Chick

Hands down one of the worst things that can happen in a relationship is finding out he’s got someone on the side. No girl wants to imagine their man has eyes for anyone else but her, let alone if he has a consistent side chick he keeps going back to.

Of course, if he’s stepping out on his woman then the problem is with him, not her. But that doesn’t mean she’s not going to feel hurt by his actions. These 15 signs can indicate if a SO is, in fact, seeing someone else. While these hints may not mean anything on their own, if he’s showing a variety of these signs, then it’s likely that’s something is up.

It’s always best to trust our gut and confront him if we think something is up. The truth always comes out, after all!

15. He Suddenly Cares More About His Appearance

When someone suddenly takes more of an interest in their appearance it can be a sign they have someone they want to impress. If your man is putting more effort into his clothing choices and styling his hair, it could be a sign he’s developing feelings for someone else.

Then again, this isn’t always a sign your man has strayed. Perhaps he’s just feeling more confident than usual.

14. He Never Lets Her See His Phone Screen

One of the tell-tale signs that your significant other has someone on the side is if they’ve become protective of their phone. Maybe he always puts his phone face down when he puts it on the table or he’s careful to not leave it alone with you.

This could be a sign he’s worried you’ll see a message or photo of someone that he doesn’t want you to know about.

13. There Are Women’s Things In His Apartment

If you find a lipstick or scarf at your man’s place that isn’t yours, then you’re going to be highly suspicious. He might claim to have a legitimate excuse, like the item belongs to his sister, a female friend, or even his roommate’s girlfriend. There might be situations where this is, indeed, the truth.

But if something tells you his story isn’t adding up, then the item may actually belong to a romantic partner.

12. He Can Easily Lie About Small Things

If you’ve noticed that your SO has no problem fibbing about small things, then it’s likely he can also lie about bigger stuff, too. If he’s been dishonest with you in the past (even if it’s about something trivial), then it’s understandable why you may have a hard time trusting him.

Trust your gut if you think he’s spinning you a fake tale.

11. He Overcompensates By Being Too Nice

When someone feels guilty about something or they’re worried you’re becoming too suspicious of them, they’ll likely go out of their way to convince you nothing is up.

If you feel like your man has been extra nice, to the point where it’s abnormal, he may feel like he has to make up for something. While he could feel bad about all sorts of things, it’s very possible he’s been seeing someone else.

10. He Always Has To Stay Late At Work (So He Says)

Whether he says he has to stay late at work or makes up some other excuse to bail on your plans together, this isn’t a good sign. Granted, life may just be extra busy for him.

But if he’s acting strange about what he has going on in his personal or professional life, it’s likely he’s not giving you all of the details. Trust yourself if you feel like things aren’t adding up.

9. He Makes It Seem Like His GF Is The Problem

A classic move someone will make if they have something to hide is trying to turn things around on the other person. If you’ve questioned his whereabouts or even asked him if he’s got someone else, yet he always deflects by acting upset that you don’t trust him, then he probably does have something he’s not telling you.

He wants you to feel like it’s all in your head so you’ll stop digging for answers.

8. He Doesn’t Take His GF Around His Friends

Regardless of what your man might say, it’s not normal to never hang out with his friends, let alone never meet them. If your guy has another girl on the side, it’s likely his best buddies know about it.

So, of course he wouldn’t want you to hang around his pals since there’s a chance they could spill the beans.

7. He’s Defensive When She Asks Where He’s Been

Someone who has something to hide is immediately going to go on the defensive. If they act upset or offended by your questions, their hope is it’ll convince you that they could never be dishonest (and that you should feel bad for questioning them).

However, if someone knows they’ve done nothing wrong, they’ll have no problem staying calm and collected.

6. He Seems More On Edge Than Normal

When someone has something to hide, there will likely be a shift in their behaviour. They may seem more anxious or defensive. Of course, there could be other things going on in his life, but he might have someone else.

If he’s exhibiting this sign along with any of the others on this list, then it’s understandable that you might question his intentions.

5. He’s Stepped Out In Previous Relationships

Everyone makes mistakes, so you can’t always judge someone by what they’ve done in the past. Similarly, simply because someone has never stepped out on a previous SO it doesn’t mean they won’t in the future.

But many times, patterns are repeated. So, if your man has a history of stepping out and your gut is telling you something is up, then you might be correct.

4. He Either Replies Right Away Or Not At All

If your man struggles to be consistent when texting, it could be a sign something is up on his end. If he’s away from his phone for long periods of time, it could mean he’s with someone that you don’t want to know about.

And if there are times when he seems to reply too quickly (like if you ask him what’s up), then he might be trying to overcompensate for something.

3. He’s Been Acting More Distant Lately

If you feel like your significant other has been pulling away or is emotionally unavailable, it could mean he’s investing himself elsewhere – like in a side relationship!

When someone acts distant, it’s usually a sign that something is going on behind the scenes, even if it doesn’t have to do with being disloyal. If you think something is up, ask him about it right away.

2. He’s Getting More Attention Online From Girls

If you guy’s social media habits have changed, then it’s likely that something else has changed in his life. If you notice he’s getting more female attention than ever before, it could be a sign he’s being flirtatious when offline.

It’s an even worse sign if he’s engaging with the online attention or, at the very least, doing nothing to shut it down.

1. He’s Lost His Passion

Sometimes, when a guy has lost his passion and enthusiasm, it can be a sign he’s getting his fix with someone else, which is why he’s less interested in doing things with you.

However, to be clear, just because someone seems less interested in fun or hobbies, it doesn’t automatically mean they’re having fun with someone else. There can be a variety of reasons why things may not be as interesting.

The best thing is to simply ask him about it, and gauge his reaction.

 

Clearing the Cache

I wanted to do this a few years ago, but NOW is the time.

I’ve come to a revelation lately. The older I get, the wiser I become. I remember thinking and saying to my dad how smart he was. He would just say, “I’m just older, son.”

He was right.

He knew he wasn’t better or smarter than anyone else, he simply knew he’d been around for a bit and learned some things along the way.

He was absolutely right.

Although there were certain aspects of my father’s persona he never addressed, he still was a man who had developed cognitive intelligence along the way through experience and through books he’d read.

Socially he was a master and really perfected the art of charming people through manners and diplomacy.

My dad was a great actor and politician.

He knew it, and used it to his advantage.

I’ve met so many people along the way in my journey, and because I’m a giver and sensitive to the human condition, I give people a lot of chances.

Too many chances.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, but there’s a moment when you have to draw the line and decide to let go of certain people.

If not, you’re continuing to evolve but still have some human detritus in your cache that need to be jettisoned.

They’re not bad people, but they just aren’t a match for your life anymore.

It isn’t an event, or a day when it happens, but you just sort of have a feeling that these people don’t have a place in your life anymore.

You have nothing in common with them, and no longer align with their lifestyle or mindset.

You’ve acquired them on your journey, sometimes by accident or by choice, but there comes a point when you realize as you continue to grow, you have no use for them anymore. They’re stuck. Probably stuck when you met them you just didn’t notice.

Again, they’re not bad people, but you can no longer carry them in your life.

You continue to evolve and move forward with your life, but sadly realize they are so far behind or stuck they can no longer be in your life.

It’s hard. And if you’re kind you’ll actually think about them for awhile. But happily in time… they’ll fade away.

I wanted to cut this person off over a year and a half ago, but I knew they would only stalk me at my job. But now is the time to finally cut the very last toxic person out of my life.

Cut them loose with no remorse. You’ll feel an incredible sense of relief they can no longer live in your mind rent free.
