It’s March, so you know what that means? It’s time for MARCH MADNESS! March Madness is typically the second week of March through the first week of April. This year, the tournament is scheduled to begin on March 14th, 2017. March Madness is the time of year when the NCAA Men’s and Women’s college basketball tournaments are held to determine the national champions of college basketball.
How Does the Tournament Work?
For those who do not know how the tournament works, here is a brief overview, according to Wikipedia.
They typically start with 68 college basketball teams from the Division I level of the NCAA, to determine the national championship. 16 teams make it past the first weekend’s games. This is called the “Sweet Sixteen”. The second weekend narrows the field to the “Elite Eight” and then the “Final Four”. The final weekend focuses on the four semifinalists. The two semifinal victors move on to play in the national championship game.
Over the past years, online dating has become the “norm”, especially among college students and young professionals. According to the Pew Research Center, “80% of Americans who have used online dating agree that online dating is a good way to meet people,” so we’re all for giving a dating app or online platform a try in order to find that special someone. We have provided 6 quick tips for online dating below.
Make sure your online dating profile is YOU!
Your online dating profile should portray who you are, not who you used to be, or some exaggerated version of yourself. Be honest and be yourself. If someone is going to reject your honest online profile, it’s better to weed them out ahead of time anyway! If you can narrow down the pool of people you connect with online by being your true self, the odds of actually liking the people you choose to meet up with in person will be much higher. Madison may seem like a big city, but the world gets a lot smaller when you start dating online. The last thing you want to do is exaggerate or be dishonest on your online dating profile then get caught out on the town acting or looking like a completely different person.
If you’re not sure if your profile shows the best and most honest side of you, feel free to ask a friend to look it over. Friends are actually much better judges of our best characteristics than we are.

The most popular New Year’s resolutions involve living a healthier life. One of the main factors that can determine how “healthy” you are, is your nutrition.
