People Are Mad Over Delta's Cute, Harmless Little Napkins, No Wonder Love Is Dead In 2019

With Valentine's Day approaching fast, Coca-Cola and Delta teamed up for a marketing campaign. They passed out napkins encouraging passengers to swap numbers with their "plane crush."

A simple way of saying, "hey, you're on a plane with a bunch of people you don't know and that don't know you. Why don't you take a shot? You never know, you're one true love could be on this very plane! And if not, you'll never see them again anyway!"

Or, at least that's how they intended.

The majority of people, on the other hand, are not so pleased. Some people are saying the napkins are a form of harassment and that it's just downright creepy. While I could see some people's reasoning behind it being a little creepy, it's far from being anywhere close to harassment.




The goal of the napkins was to get people to break from their comfort zone.

Most of our dating lives are hookup centric and revolve around swiping left or right. The napkins were just a cute, innocent way to break the ice IRL without any dating apps.

I can't imagine why a cute little napkin would have so many people in an uproar.

I can understand where some could get that as creepy, but it's entirely harmless. The person is giving you their name and number. They aren't requesting yours. They aren't making you give your number out to strangers on a plane. All they're doing is trying to encourage people to jump out of their comfort zone and take a risk.

Many people are so scared to date in this day and age that they've lost all hope in trying. This napkin was a way to encourage them that, while you may not always get a call back, you won't know if you don't try.

The ones that are finding it as a form of harassment...what makes it that way? Because someone finds you attractive and would like to get to know you?

This is why dating is starting to die away. People are scared of taking the risk of talking to someone they don't know, in fear that they will get falsely accused of harassing someone when they just want to get to know them.

It's one thing to be hesitant in this day and age about grand gestures to ask people out, but in some ways, it's also keeping us from finding the love we deserve.

Even if you aren't interested, the worst that happens is you either tell them you aren't interested to their face or you just say thank you, and throw away the number and you never see them again—you are on a plane after all.



Someone trying to give you their number is in no way shape or form a sign of harassment. If they are consistently throughout the entire flight poking you, trying to get your number, asking multiple times, etc. THAT is harassment.

Dating isn't going to survive if we don't start taking risks in life. Delta and Coca-Cola didn't do anything wrong and they should definitely NOT apologize for trying to be a little helpful in people meeting one another.

If you find offensiveness in Delta and Coca-Cola's cute napkins, you may be part of the problem.

10 Photos You Have On Your Camera Roll Of Your S.O. When You've Been Dating For More Than A Year

A wide range from "Aw" to "WTF?"

My boyfriend and I just hit the year and a half mark of dating, even though it seems like we've been together forever. Over the months, we've taken many pictures together... from football games, to his track meets, to holidays. Although we may have a lot of pictures together, I definitely have a lot of candids of him in my camera roll. If you've been dating your partner for as long as I have or longer, then you'll probably notice you have these same pictures in your photos as well.

1. The awkward first photos together

We laugh at these now, especially this one. Why am I so pale compared to him? It was July! And also, we noticed not to long ago that I was sweating under my arms and his underarms were sweating on me... what a great first time meeting!

2. The ones for VSCO

Every girl who has a significant other posts them onto their VSCO. VSCO is like Instagram, but more has more aesthetically pleasing pictures and there are no "likes." The pictures that include my boyfriend on my VSCO ranges from him holding a bunny to him holding my hand while we went ice skating.

3. Them sleeping

I have so many pictures of my boyfriend sleeping (I promise it's not as weird as it sounds), I just think he's so cute when he's fast asleep while cuddling with me.

4. The embarrassing ones they want no one to see

He's going to kill me when he sees this... but we all have those embarrassing Snapchat pictures that we start to send each other because we've gotten more comfortable with one another.

5. The ones for Facebook

The good looking pictures so you can keep yours and his family updated on how you two are doing. I took my boyfriend to a baby bird meet and greet since he loves birds and has one for a pet. I posted this cute picture of him and his new friends on Facebook so my family can see our adventures together.

6. Old pictures

One of the best parts of dating someone is finally seeing their old pictures. Although, sometimes they may make you cringe... like the one I posted above of my boyfriend after prom in his sophomore year of high school.

7. Their accomplishments

My boyfriend pole vaults for his college and he's really good at it. He just went to division III nationals in March because he qualified! I'm always at his meets so I make sure to get him on video in case he or anyone wants to see. I always try to snag a picture with him too because I'm always so proud.

8. The straight up ugly ones

He sure knows how to make me laugh. And I know he's going to be mad at me for this one too but I think it's a talent that he can do that with his stomach! Sorry, Adam, I promise I still think you look good when you send me these snaps for the most part.

9. But you have the hot ones too

He may be funny and sweet, but he is pretty good looking too. I know us girls keep some attractive pictures of our S.O.'s so we can remind ourselves of what a great looking partner we have.

10. FaceTime screenshots

If you and your lover go to different colleges like my boyfriend and I do, then FaceTiming happens a lot. Sometimes I get some great screenshots, like the one above, to make fun of him later.

To My Cheating Ex’s New Wife, From The Ex He Probably Didn’t Tell You About

Know that whatever you do, I will support you and your decisions.

To his new wife,

First of all, I will not tell you to run, to fight your way out, or to leave in the dead of night. I will not try to convince you to do anything you do not want to do. Ever. End of discussion.

I do not know you and, as far as I know, you do not know me. All I know of you is the life you have created on social media. All I know is what you and the man you love post.

But, as far as I can tell, you both are happy. You both love each other dearly and continue to care for one another each and every day. And I hope it continues this way.

I hope the two of you last. I hope he has grown since last we spoke. I hope he treats you so much better than he treated me. I hope he has grown into the man I always wanted him to be.

Whether he told you about me or not, whether he chose to work on himself internally or you worked on his past with him, you are someone that I knew needed to walk into his life. You are the kind of person I knew he needed from the moment I walked away.

The kind to stick by a man's side when he has royally messed up. The kind to call him out when he's messed up. The kind to accept his failures and love his faults.

And for this I thank you, I applaud you, and I cheer for you.

I thank you for accepting the man that I could not. I thank you for allowing him to grow into the man you deserve. I thank you for being his "one." And most importantly, I thank you for making sure I wasn't "the one."

I applaud you for loving the man that I could not. I applaud you for waiting on him to become a man worth waiting for. I applaud you for entering into his family and allowing him to enter yours.

I cheer for you and only you. I cheer for you to be happy, whether that is with him or not. I cheer for other women to have the life they want. If yours is with him, then I cheer for both of you. But I will also cheer for only you if he does something to make you want to leave him. I will also cheer for your safety and for your sanity. Always.

At the end of the day, I do not know what kind of man he is now. I do not know what kind of husband he is. I do not know what kind of wife you are. If he is a kind and loving man, one that does not mentally, emotionally, or physically tear you down each day, if he is a trustworthy and trusting husband, one that is secure in his life with you; if he is the kind of man that your parents dreamed of for you, then I will continue to be content with the joy that he brings you.

However, if he is a mean and rude man, one that continues to slowly tear you down day by day, if he is an untrustworthy man and a man that does not trust, one that is constantly insecure in himself and live with you, if he is the kind of man your parents dreaded coming near their daughter, then I will be here ready and willing to take on your cry for help. I will be here with advice, shelter, and comfort.

If he becomes the man that cheated on me if he becomes the man that I wished would take responsibility for his actions, if he becomes the man that I left, know that you have a sister and friend in me. Know that whatever your choice may be, I will support you and your life decisions.

Sincerely,

A Woman That Continues To Support Women
