Signs of a bad dating choice
By following such strategic principles and tools, you may design and host your site by yourself. from Brooklyn, NY for suggesting this week’s topic: Online dating, once a fringe and stigmatized activity, is now over a billion industry.I have a friend that goes on two or three first dates every week with people he already knows are potentially good personality and physical matches for him—how you find the right person, and good luck keeping up with him meeting people the old-fashioned way.And for people who have no interest in serious dating and just want to find people to hook up with?Simply considered as online meeting people, it makes a ton of sense.I’ve already expressed my argument for why in two posts: one on how critical it is to find the right life partner and how seriously we should take that quest, and another on why going to bars is a terrible life experience.Using two spaces makes it possible to end up with a blank line at the top of a column plus it leaves way too much space between each paragraph – it looks disconnected. This is a very bad practice and is not correct – Using only one space is the correct way. Can you see in the above picture how the surrounding white space makes the text stand out on its own?

Yes, this is a controversial topic, however I hope to raise awareness of some mistakes you may be making in your graphic design pieces that are making you look like an amateur, but please keep in mind that none of these are hard and fast rules, this is only a general guide of things you should be aware of.
Please forgive me for the graphic and bad grammar / spelling in the picture above as I’m sure you can see it is a joke 🙂 (rainbow gradients, comic sans, bevel emboss, 13 not 15, bad grammar, off centered type – yuk) Anyway, I have compiled 15 tell tale signs that you may still be considered a (don’t quote me) bad graphic designer.
Do you use a centred layout in your graphic design pieces? All caps is fine sometimes but when you are conscious of using it and why. Creating professional level type and design is mainly a matter of becoming more aware of details and practice.
Using centred layouts is usually bad practice as it creates a deadly dull look. This often indicates a beginner who feels unsafe with type that is uncontained. Try using bold, using a different typeface or using reverse text. If you scored less than 3, then congratulations and consider it your obligation to teach others the things you know.

And yes I know this website uses Helvetica 🙂 Also check out the post 30 fonts to last you a lifetime. Straight quotes were for typewriters, times have changed! Learn the keystrokes to ‘real’ quotes in every application you use. Don’t type curly quotes when you need inch and foot marks (prime marks).
