Dance clubs and dive bars may have worked in the '90s, but now, even if you’re out, your phone is a much easier way to find someone to "Netflix and chill" with (especially someone you won’t regret tomorrow).

I always laugh when guys in NYC say, "Man, why are women so on guard all the time?

THE STATISTICS are hard to fathom: Fifteen times in the last seven years, horrified parents have learned their teenage daughters were raped by men who lured them over telephone chat lines.
The girls met their rapists in person after talking with them on sordid, free telephone chat lines, many of them unblockable, which are operated across the country by a company called Ripple Communications.
But even if Ripple gets just a tenth of a cent per minute, it would gross almost million a year. One of them, the Loup, was used by men who raped four teenage girls in New Jersey.
