Bella Breakdown Swipe right, swipe left, swipe right, swipe right. Many people who are partaking in our modern dating world have practiced this ritual in the hopes of finding a partner, love interest, or hook-up.

Was It Just a Fight? Or Is The Relationship Over?

Some are romanticizing Badgley’s character, defending some...
