While it may seem like the easiest solution would be to pack up and move to a brand new city and try to forget the disaster of a relationship never hand, that's just not always plausible. However, if it is, you might want to try that.
1. Friend of a friend – We thought we should start with the most obvious way that exes seem to stay around. It was convenient when you were dating; group outings and double dates are always a good time. However, now that you can’t stand to look your stupid ex in the face, it’s slightly difficult to make plans with certain friends because they reek of ex girlfriend/boyfriend. All their stories are littered with your old beau and you just want them to end that friendship. Unfortunately, the only escape from this is ending a friendship, or “accidentally” saying something that ends the relationship between your friend and your ex.
Remember that saying “There’s an app for that”? Since apps have become such a huge part of everyday life, the phrase really does have a lot of truth behind it. Considering just how diverse the spectrum is, we decided to dive into the market and dig up the best and worst apps designed for some of our favorite people: foodies.

Thanks to the rapid rise of the ever so popular emoji, we no longer have to verbalize our emotions when communicating. That's right, our phones now come equipped with facial expressions to use in place of actual words, because expressing yourself is just so hard. When trying to convey flirtatious messages to the opposite sex, these come in handy. Follow our simple guide to proper emoji usage for flirtatious text messaging.
Heart eyes. Let’s start with the obvious. This emoji transcends all virtual interaction. From Instagram, to Twitter, to the messages in your inbox, this is a universal “I’m attracted” emoji. In case you were somehow clueless, if you are presented with this emoji, somebody is interested. For those who like to send these, calm down. No need to throw the heart eyes out to everybody, or constantly use them. We get it, you like what you see. While emojis are fun, let’s practice using our words sometimes too, ok?

The worst part of that awesome night out you have planned is the inevitable hangover you'll have in the morning (or afternoon, whenever you actually wake up). We know you want to match your friends shot for shot, but not everyone likes to deal with sunlight or noise of any kind the next day. Take a few of our precautions and avoid the hangover altogether, or try a few of these options to quickly cure your pounding headache.
Avoid the Hangover Before Drinking:
Here's the best medicinal cure for a hangover that you've never heard of. Never Hungover is a dietary supplement you drink before going out, and miraculously keeps you from being hungover the next day! The secret formula works by neutralizing and processing the dangerous toxins created by alcohol in the liver and kidneys by turning them into acetic acids, which are then flushed out of the body, drastically reducing the chance of a hangover.
Let’s be honest. Not everybody can afford the lavish luxuries of flying first class. For us average folks who are confined to the prisons of economy-class seating, there is finally a solution to the drab, close-fitting, seats we are forced to sit in for hours.
Airbus has blessed the world with helmets that allow us to virtually erase our surroundings while airborne. The helmet has the ability to provide music, movies, or handle business with the virtual keyboard that appears on the tray in front of you.
The idea is still in the preliminary stages, but it is well on its way to being provided during air travel. Airplanes are a scary way to travel and people have been begging for a way to make them easier and less stressful. From the cramped seats to the uncomfortably quick ascent into the air, planes are the fastest way to reach a destination but amongst the most inconvenient.
Dealing with the stress of everyday life can take a toll. No worries! Technology is catching up to us and provided us with some pretty cool bracelets to help you relax—or just look cool on your arm.

Well folks it’s about that time. For you Apple fanatics, we know you’ve been itching for the latest release and it has finally come! Apple has recently announced features and release dates for their newest products: the iPhone 6 and6 plus..
Apple is offering two renditions of the 6th installment in the iPhone legacy, the 6 and the 6 plus. The most elementary difference is the size. The iPhone 6 plus is not only bigger than the previous iPhone, but it also makes the Samsung Galaxy look like rather tiny in comparison.
They have adjusted simple issues, such as moving the sleep switch to the right side to make it more easily accessible or allowing the home screen to rotate as well. Although they are making the phone bigger, the features associated with it still allow it to work as well as a small phone. For example, apps at the top of the rather large screen become accessible with a simple touch of the home button. They instantly slide down to be reached by your thumb.
