When I came across the opportunity to review the latest cutting edge dating app just in time for Valentine’s Day, I immediately wondered if I was the right person to review it. After all, I have a serious boyfriend who I’ve been living with for three years. But then it occurred to me that I might just be the perfect person. They say you should never trust a skinny chef. So why should you trust a single person to give you dating advice? Armed with the knowledge I’ve gathered from being in a long committed relationship, I set out to try WhoNow, a dating app that allows you to give and get anonymous feedback from your friends.
One of the biggest problems I had with online dating apps and websites when I was single was that they don’t mirror real life. It often becomes a forced and fake experience that you put a lot of work into, but don’t get a lot out of. That’s why I gave up on dating apps and started going to bars where I didn’t meet anyone either. In real life as on regular social media sites, you’re always getting feedback from and engaging with your friends. However, dating apps have traditionally asked us to go at it alone. That’s where WhoNow is different.
By allowing you to organize your relationships with anonymous comments and feedback from your trusted friends and followers, WhoNow lets your friends do half the work making dating less of a burden and a lot more fun. WhoNow also helps you make better dating decisions by allowing you to use polls, locations and images in post for better advice. Just like in real life getting feedback from friends on anything from finding a date to where you should go on your third date, is fast and simple. You can invite friends to join you on your dating journey using their phone numbers for a fast and secure one way invite. No need to worry about random followers. WhoNow is completely private. Your information will only be shared with the people you invite and comments from your trusted inner circle are 100% private.
With the help of our friends, we can all become better daters and have more fun doing it. So if you’re interested in changing your dating game or getting back into it, WhoNow is available for free download on iOS and Google Play.

There’s nothing more glamours than freshly fallen snow in Central Park. Recently Winter Storm Jonas turned it into a magical winter destination clad in over two feet of snow. When walking through the park the day after the storm, I felt like I was vacationing at a ski resort in Aspen rather than strolling through Midtown Manhattan.
The necklace is from Rocksbox, a subscription service where a stylist provides you with unlimited jewelry samples for $19 a month. You can buy the pieces you want just by holding onto them and send back what you don’t. It’s basically the Birchbox of jewelry. Sign up using the code “aspiringsocialitexoxo” and you can get one month free. Renting jewelry is truly the way of the future.
Aside from all of the amazing yoga, barre, aerial yoga, etc. classes that I take almost daily with ClassPass, I’m really not a sporty person. I’ve never had that strong of an interest in watching or playing competitive sports. But when it comes to the Super Bowl, I really get into the game and even more the commercials.
P.S. – If you’re interested in joining ClassPass and getting unlimited classes, use my link and we can both save $20. Unlike a gym, there is no yearly commitment and you’ll get the chance to experience a bunch of different studios rather than just one. While classes are unlimited, you only get three per studio per month. It’s a great way to discover new styles of fitness and makes working out a lot more fun.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whether or not you have special plans with an even more special someone or are a single gal out on the town, the best way to celebrate is by showing yourself a little love.
If you’re planning a Galentine’s Day celebration, why not do a small gift exchange? Just borrow the classic Yankee Swap from Christmas, treat each other to cute Valentine’s Day themed gifts and you have yourself a party.
Personally, I’m not really sure what I’ll be doing this Valentine’s Day. It’s in the middle of New York Fashion Week and my boyfriend might be getting a root canal the day before. But I will be getting myself a little something, something!
