Bio

Candice Jalili is the Senior Sex + Dating Writer at Elite Daily. She’s been writing for Elite Daily since she graduated Santa Clara University in 2015. She has covered pretty much everything you and your friends have drunkenly discussed in the bar bathroom, from why you’re still thinking about your ex to why Kourtney and Scott are the greatest exes of all time. Outside of Elite Daily, Candice also writes Sex + Dating content for Cosmopolitan, TIME, Tinder SwipeLife, The Cut, and more. Dwayne The Rock Johnson once tweeted about one of her articles, but that’s neither here nor there. Read more of her work at candicejalili.com and definitely shoot her an Insta follow at @candicejalili. When Candice isn’t writing about ghosting and orgasms, she’s usually binging standup on Netflix with her boyfriend, forcing her parents to FaceTime her for way longer than they feel like FaceTiming her, or trying to perfect the human pyramid with her best friends (more on that when you shoot her that Insta follow).
