My 5 Best Pieces of Dating Advice

by Harper Anderson 


When I first got my internship being Shift magazine’s teen dating blogger, my excitement was quickly eclipsed by total and complete terror. Although my application essay implied that I was the Rosetta Stone of all things romance, the simple fact was that I was a disaster around members of the opposite sex. 

(I might have sort of misappropriated some of my best friend’s stories as her own on my application. Note to future interns and current friend-havers: Don’t ever do this.) 

But even if I was a dating newbie, I learned as I went and actually gave out some pretty good advice (if I do say so myself). Here are some of my favorite tips: 


1. Carpe That Effing Diem

Good things come to those who don’t wait. 

2. If you feel awkward, fake it

Confidence can be contagious, even if it’s only pretend. 

3. You know youve taken your social media stalking too far when:

You know that the girl in your crush’s fourth most recent profile picture is his cousin from Arkansas. 

4. And another over-stalking warning sign is when:

You accidentally favorited one of his ex’s Instagrams… from 97 weeks ago. 

5. At the end of the day, the jerk you went to homecoming with wont matter. 

Your friend who kicked him in the balls when he was a jerk to you will. Because she’ll be kicking jerks in the balls for you for the rest of your life.

The Devil Wears Prada meets Sex and the City in a wickedly funny debut novel about a girl who lands a dream internship at a magazine in New York City. If only she hadn’t lied about being a dating expert on her resume . .

Harper Anderson has always thought she should have been born somewhere more glamorous than her sleepy Northern California suburb. After all, how many water polo matches and lame parties in Bobby McKittrick’s backyard can one girl take?

Already resigned to working at a Skinny B’s Juice Press for the summer, Harper is shocked when the ultra-prestigious teen magazine, Shift, calls to say they want her to be their teen dating blogger for the summer. All she needs to do is get her butt to New York in two days.

There’s just one teeny, tiny problem: Apart from some dance floor make-outs, Harper doesn’t have a whole lot of dating experience. So when Shift’s application asked for an “edgy” personal essay, Harper might have misappropriated her best friend’s experiences for her own. But she can just learn on the job...right? Will the house of lies Harper has built around her dream job collapse all around her, or will she be able to fake it until she makes it in the big city?
