“Our writers, like our readers, are from diverse backgrounds with an endless range of interests. What we all have in common with each other is that we are insatiably curious about the world.
You care about what’s working and what isn’t, about fashion, politics, technology, celebrities, health, beauty, work, sex, friendship, food, and more. What we care about is providing these stories in a way that’s smart, informative, fun, and supportive — of your relationships, your choices, your goals, and you.”
