What to Wear on a First Date

31/08/2014 by Maeve Bannister

For me, the hardest part about going out is deciding what to wear. It’s a challenge that becomes a million times more difficult when going out on a date. My mind goes into overdrive and, even if I know where I’m going, I always second guess myself as I try to figure out whether or not I’m underdressed (bad) or overdressed (worse).

Department of Deportment - When Can We Be 'Out' on Facebook?

24/08/2014 by Department of Deportment

Dear DoD, I’ve been seeing my current man, ‘Steve’, for about eight weeks. We have a great time and stay at each other’s place a couple of nights a week. My issue is that while we’re ‘friends’ on Facebook, he still hasn’t asked if we should change our status to ‘In a Relationship’. Am I being unreasonable? If so, can you please tell me what is an appropriate time to wait for us to be ‘out’ on Social Media?

Help! I Hate My Man's Beard!

14/08/2014 by Department of Deportment

Dear Department of Deportment, My boyfriend is 25 years old and has grown himself a beard and, well… I really hate it. The problem is that he’s really proud of his flourishing follicles, and insists on telling everyone within earshot about every little detail of his beard as though it’s his first-born child. How can I convince him that being fashion-forward is not the ‘way forward’ for our relationship? Many thanks, Miss Gillette ____________________________________________________________ Dear Miss G,
