Cracking the Code: Person vs. Persona

How well you know someone and can interpret their actions may be a matter of perspective and circumstance. This is why the dating landscape is often difficult to navigate.

Let’s say that you meet a stranger at a bar, they seem carefree, or is that merely a byproduct of the environment? They’ve had a few drinks, which isn’t a problem because its the weekend, they’re with their friends who endorse them as a good person, all positive signs.

So what’s the problem? There isn’t a visible red flag.

However, the issue is not what you see; it’s what you don’t know.

The beginning of many relationships thrives on the unknown as couples learn more about each other. This period of discovery seems adventurous as you reach benchmarks or stages that if they go off without a hitch propel you forward.

Fantasy Football: Reality or a Cheater’s Lie?

Fantasy football is a game that those who participate in really embrace for various reasons.

For many, it’s an excuse to follow the entire NFL rather than rooting for a single team. Participating in a fantasy football league is particularly appealing if your favorite team isn’t getting anywhere near the “playoffs,” as Jim Mora infamously exclaimed.

As you get older and see friends and family more infrequently, it’s an excuse to stay connected, too. The days of real competition on the playing field are merely memories now as an adult. But, the competitive spirit remains strong as we each manage a made-up team of pro players that grind it out on the gridiron of the internet. The teams may be a fantasy, but the bragging rights of victory are firmly planted in reality.
