Revelations last week that the King of Sweden once enjoyed romps in seedy nightclubs owned by shadowy underworld figures have eclipsed the sparkle of July's wedding.King Carl XVI Gustaf, the stern-looking, bespectacled monarch who is honorary chairman of the World Scout Foundation, has found himself thrust uncomfortably in the spotlight following the publication of an unflinching book, Carl XVI Gustaf – Den motvillige monarken (Carl XVI Gustaf – The reluctant monarch) which catalogues his past predilection for wild, alcohol-fuelled orgies and naked jacuzzi parties with models.” says Academy Award–winning actress Diane Keaton, 65, on the phone from Los Angeles, where she lives with her daughter, Dexter, 15, and her son, Duke, 10. It wasn’t until after my mother died that I wanted to do it.” Drawing from her mother’s journals—85 of them, kept over the course of her life—as well as love letters (from the likes of Al Pacino, Warren Beatty, and Woody Allen, who remains a close friend), Keaton took a collage approach to writing the book, selections from which appear in _Vogue’_s November issue.“I’m a hoarder,” she says, laughing.“For me, documentation has always been key, and I’ve kept everything from my past.Early in the mornings I would drive Dexter to swim practice, and I would sit in the car with my computer and coffee as the sun rose, and it was just like old trips with my family, taking me to different places I’d never been.”One morning I woke up to a group of strangers walking around our house examining every room.Mom hadn’t bothered to tell me, my brother, Randy, or my sisters, Robin and Dorrie, that she had entered the Mrs. Later she told us kids it was a pageant devoted to finding the ideal homemaker, possessing such skills as table-setting, floral arranging, and cooking, as well as managing the family budget and excelling in personal grooming.Their relationship fizzles after they spend a rainy weekend trapped together in a bed and breakfast.Now: Clark later appeared on Then: Jerry starts dating George's (Jason Alexander) ex-girlfriend when he picks up his friend's books from her apartment.

All eyes were trained on Stockholm as the glamorous Crown Princess Victoria wed her long-time boyfriend in a fairy-tale ceremony, and the world's press clamoured for a glimpse of the elegant Swedish royals and their regal guests.
But then it created this weird landscape where guys are expecting the woman to not only message them first, but apparently ask them out and plan a date also.
And this dynamic has even spread to all the other dating apps outside of Bumble, causing women to feel like they are the ones that have to pursue the guy, or else nothing happens.
If guys just continue to assume that traditional role of asking the girl out on the date, and planning the first date – even if you met on Bumble – then everything will just move along much faster and easier!
You will actually GO on more dates and meet more people “in the flesh”… Plus, is it really that much of a burden and that much effort to say “hey, let’s meet in person over a drink, what’s your schedule like this week? I hear the complaint constantly from my male clients and other men that they’ll be talking to a girl, ask her out, and then – poof! And then the poor guys are obsessing over what the hell they could have possibly said to offend them or turn them off so much with one message.
