While Jenner denies rumors of linking with the 29-year-old  Rack City rapper during a late-night studio session, the trending topic has sparked a much larger debate when it comes to dating.

Is it ever okay to date an ex again?

Although a lot of us like to complicate the matter, the answer to this question is quite simple — no.

We can all be a little hopeless romantic when aspiring towards a happy-ever-after love like the ones from our favorite rom-coms.

However, we often tend to forget, when it comes to great movies, most of the time the sequel sucks!

Studies have shown that 50 percent of adults who reconcile with an ex are prone to experiencing behavioral patterns that involve cycling through the same relationship drama. Yikes!

We’re not saying that things can never work with an ex, just be  beware of all possible outcomes.

Here’s what the hosts of Twenty-Something had to say when it comes to revisiting the idea of dating an old flame.

9 Reasons Why You Should Date a Fantasy Football Junkie

9 Reasons Why You Should Date a Fantasy Football Junkie

The NFL season is set to kick-off so this means guys retreat to their man caves and lose their voices screaming at the TV on game days.  Some woman may not understand the passion guys have for football.  But what is even a deeper form of complexity are the fantasy football junkies.  Why has this crazy spreading among the population like the plague in World War Z?  That’s a whole other topic but what we can say for you ladies out there is that whether you understand it or not you need a fantasy football player in your life.  If you’re skeptical about pursuing a potential stat whiz, we put together a list of 9 reasons why you should date a fantasy football junkie.  Where sure by the end of this article you’ll be stalking your closest Buffalo Wild Wings looking to crash a fantasy draft to find your next stud muffin.

They Do Their Homework

How else would they know who who the 3rd string running back is for the Oakland Raiders or that the starting receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars pulled a hamstring in practice which could impede his performance?  These guys know who’s injured, who’s lost a step and which players are likely to have a break out season.  So finding out that you enjoy crumb cake from that certain bakery across town or that you prefer horror movies over romantic comedies will be a cinch.

 

They Always Have a Back-Up Plan

Look the guy lost his starting RB for the season with a torn ACL right before his first fantasy playoff game. Do you think he broke a sweat? No.  Why? Because he was smart enough to handcuff his stud back (if you need to know what handcuff means ask your FF junkie).  So when date night rolls around and the picnic you guys planned gets rained-out, don’t fret.  Your lovable fantasy football junkie already made reservations to that intimate Italian joint you’ve been reading about in Yelp.  So rest easy knowing there’s always a plan b.

 

They are Kids at Heart

So your fantasy football stud muffin just hit his dirty thirties.  He rocks a tie to work everyday and schmoozes at dinner parties you drag him to.  Looks like he’s put all of his childish ways in the past.  Wrong. Because come every August the man behind “Ha Ha Monica Loves Clinton Dix” reactivates his account and his elementary school sense of humor in the process.  For the next 4 months Sundays will be reserved for playground-like trash talking while in worn out jersey with his college nickname in the back.  This may seem kind of annoying on the surface but who wants to be in a relationship with a stiff.

 

They Have Great Negotiation Skills

Say you find yourself shopping for a new car and you obviously want the best deal possible. Wouldn’t you want a guy with the closing skills of Jordan Belfort? Of course you do.  So why not enlist the guy who was able to land Aaron Rodgers for a mediocre running back and a declining wide receiver.  A true fantasy football junkie knows how to wheel a deal and always come out on top.  This is exactly the type of guy you want in your corner when its time to finagle.

 

They Are Committed

There are two dates a true fantasy football junkie cannot miss during his lifetime, his wedding day and his draft day.  No self respecting FF junkie would set an auto draft.  It’s like sending a stunt double to the church to say his vows.  Having someone that understands commitment is vital in a relationship. So why not date a guy who has been drafting with the same bunch of guys since he was still living in dorms.

 

They Are Patient

Sure there are a ton of fantasy football players who dump players on whim and consistently troll the waiver wires for new prospects but a true fantasy player has enough patience to not get rattled even when his team is stinking it up.  They understand that tables do turn and players can get on a hot streak. Translate this virtue into the dating world and you have someone that will stick it out even when times get rocky.

 

They Are Passionate

No one wants to date a square.  Imagine being with someone that shows no range of emotion.  You could be on a roller coaster and they would look like they’re in line at the DMV.  It’s always good to be with someone that is cable of getting fired up.  Come game day not only are fantasy football junkies cheering on their personal favorite teams but also their motley crew of hand selected players that have been united to achieve fantasy football glory.

 

They Are Competitive

Having a competitive edge is important trait in a significant other. Who wants to date someone with beta male tendencies? The man wants nothing more than to bring home the league trophy.  Not only does winning mean bragging rights but it’s like raising a championship banner into the rafters at home.  So be the supporting woman for a potential architect to a fantasy football dynasty.

 

They’re Not Afraid to Take Risks

In life you have to take risks. Fantasy football junkies know this all too well. Year in and year out they lay down hard earned cash for the chance to be immortalized on a trophy as well as a potentially big payout.  This type of daring behavior often times spills over to everyday life whether it be career choices, investments or dumb dares, either way they know how to live a little.  So if you want a more adventurous guy by your side, chose a fantasy football junkie.

New Bae Alert? Kylie Jenner Has Allegedly Started Dating Travis Scott

2016 Budweiser Made in America Festival - Day 2

Kylie Jenner apparently has a new boo, and he happens to be one of RIhanna‘s alleged exes.

The 19-year-old was spotted holding hands with Travis Scott at Coachella on Friday. Fans caught them taking a stroll through the festival grounds looking pretty bae’d up.

This is a pretty strong conclusion that Kylie and Tygs are dunzo for real…especially considering that just days before, Tyga was seen out and about with Instagram model Jordan Ozuna (she has since denied any romantic involvement with the rapper.) Weeks ago, Tyga reportedly moved out of Kylie’s mansion to give the two some much-needed breathing room.
Do you think Travis could be the new “T” in Kylie’s life, or is this just a brief fling? Sound off in the comments below.

The Game Makes It Clear Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson Don’t Have His Blessing

Will the real Petty Wap please stand up?

The Game must be feeling a way about Khloé Kardashian and her new boo Tristan Thompson. Though KoKo and Jayceon used to claim they were just friends, the rapper recently revealed he “hit that,” which might explain today’s shade.

Tristan slid under a photo of his girl Khloé and commented that she was “too fine.” Khloé responded to her man with major tongue action and heart eye emojis. See above.

Possibly a little bothered by the PDA, The Game tagged Tristan’s ex and said “you too fine girl,” mimicking the NBA player’s comment to Khloé.

It’s probably just one big joke to The Game, but there’s always the possibility he’s bothered by KoKo dating someone new. Either way, get acquainted with his overwhelming sexiness below.

Eric Andre hit Instagram with a cute photo of himself and his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day – but seeing as he’s a comedian, no one really took him seriously when he suddenly revealed he’s dating the one and only Rosario Dawson. Twitter – and Chance the Rapper, for that matter – were in actual disbelief.

“Happy Valentine’s Day to my Boo-Bay,” he captioned the beautiful photo, at which point social media began to react:

Mary J. Blige may have gotten her groove back.

Rumors have been swirling all week that the newly divorced songstress has found love with Straight Outta Compton star Jason Mitchell. On Wednesday, the Queen of Hip Hop/Soul confirmed whether or not she’s dating the actor – sort of. A bunch of tweets, which have since been deleted, added more fuel to the rumor mill.

No word on whether or not her account was hacked, but Mitchell sure isn’t hesitant about posting photos of his rumored boo, whom he met on the set of Mudbound, which is currently showing at Sundance.

Kendall Jenner & A$AP Rocky Get Close In Paris

https://www.instagram.com/p/BPsqh8UDfsJ/?tagged=asaprocky

Rumors have been swirling that Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky are a couple for months now, but there was never any receipts to back it up.

However, judging by all the time the supermodel and the rapper have been spending together this year alone, there may actually be some truth to the stories. Kendall and A$AP Rocky spent most of the week together in Paris for a Fashion Week event and definitely looked like an item.

Although newly single Bella Hadid was along for the trip as well as homie A$AP Ferg, TMZ reports that Jenner and Rocky were all over each other at the club and on the way back to their hotel. They were even spotted together last month in Malibu and most recently in NYC.

But…Kendall was also caught kissing her other rumored beau, LA Lakers star Jordan Clarkson, on New Year’s Eve, so maybe she and Rocky are actually friends.

This Is The Alleged Argument That Led To Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill’s Breakup

2016 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

When the holidays arrived and Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill were suddenly separable, it was a clear sign they’d split. But, in case there was any doubt, the Nickster sent out a tweet that confirmed as much, telling the world in less than 140 characters just how single she really is.

“To confirm, yes I am single,” Nicki began before revealing plans to focus on her work. Just like that, #Omeeka was no more and just like us, Meek wasn’t thrilled about her announcement.

So what got between Nicki and her Dreamchaser? TMZ says it was “the small stuff.”

“Sources close to the ex-couple tell us … they weren’t getting along in Turks and Caicos, because he was hanging with friends and not paying attention to her. She went nuts on him, he got pissed and left the island without her, and she said, ‘Screw this,’ and ended the relationship. Just that simple,” TMZ reports.

Though some claim Meek’s been cheating on his “Black Barbie” with a woman named Sonye Rasool, Rasool says those reports are absolutely false.

“There are reports Meek had been cheating with a woman named Sonye Rasool and that’s what set off Nicki. Sonye claims she and Meek hooked up years before Nicki, but fully denies any cheating and adds … she’s about to file defamation lawsuits against several outlets. She also says she understands truth is a defense, but has no fear,” writes TMZ.

Watch out Drake, we hear Marc Anthony wants that old thing back.

The 6 God may have to go through one very attractive ex-husband if he wants a piece of Jenny from the block, this according to new reports that say Marc Anthony will stop at nothing to win J. Lo back. Jennifer shared a kiss with Marc on stage at the Latin Grammys back in November, but has been spending a lot of time with her new rumored boyfriend Drake as of late.

Though E! Online‘s sources say she’s just “having fun” and not considering Drake as a “potential boyfriend,” the site also notes “J. Lo has no interest in getting back with Marc.” Marc and J. Lo officially split back in 2014, the same year he married third wife Shannon De Lima, who he’s now divorcing. “And a source even tells E! News that their growing romance is 100 percent legit and not a ploy to promote any type of business they might be working on together,” E! adds.

Amber Rose Steps Out For Date Night With Her New Boo

https://www.instagram.com/p/BN2OHxVAVg5/?taken-by=lovebscott&hl=en

Amber Rose is giving love another shot.

The Slut Walk founder (who is currently on a social media break) was spotted hand in hand with Dancing With The Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy in Los Angeles over the weekend. Paparazzi caught up with the pair as they headed to dinner at West Hollywood hotspot Delilah. The couple looked chic in all black, with Amber smiling and seeming to be in good spirits.

Amber was paired up with Val’s brother, Maks, during her latest stint on DTWS. Though her run on the show wasn’t quite successful, the social media vixen formed a strong bond with her partner, whom she refers to as her “brother.” And clearly, cupid was working his magic in the process. You may remember seeing Amber and Val cozied up at Amber’s pool party back in October.

Though Amber and Val have been linked together for months now, Val is keeping it casual “I can’t control what people think,” he told Entertainment Tonight about their budding romance. “I live my life and I try to live it, you know, the way I want to live it.”

We can’t wait to see where their newfound romance goes!

Is Idris Elba Dating This Victoria’s Secret Supermodel?

EE British Academy Film Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

Idris Elba could have just about any woman he wants, but the actor allegedly already has his sights set on a specific lucky young lady.

According to reports, the Beasts of No Nation star has been getting cozy with model Jourdan Dunn. The rumored couple reportedly flirted up a storm at an MTV EMA after party, before leaving hand-in-hand. The actor was also caught whispering in Jourdan’s ear in steamy photos from behind the scenes of the award show.

A source at the party said, “The VIP area was swarming with celebrities keen to let down their hair after the ceremony. Idris took a table tucked away in the corner with comfy sofas and was talking to a number of girls earlier in the night. But Jourdan joined his table later on in the evening and he was clearly interested in her. He was very flirty and was acting very much like a single man. At about 2.30am they left holding hands.”

Although the 44-year-old Hollywood star has been linked to many celebs, the 26-year-old supermodel, who has been single for over a year, may take him off the market.
