Bio

Sarah Ellis is a Dating Writer at Elite Daily, where she covers relationships, celebrity couples, single life, sexual health, astrology, and online dating. She writes about everything from body language to abortion access to The Bachelor franchise — and she fiercely stans all things Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Sarah co-hosts and produces a podcast called Subtext, where she breaks down listener questions about the language of online dating and texting. She has also written for Greatist, Livestrong, and Rewire.News, and she holds a Master of Arts in Journalism from New York University. When she’s not busy overanalyzing her chat history, Sarah loves distance running, vegan food, and international travel. She’s obsessed with the intersection of feminism and pop culture and will talk about it for days (seriously). You can probably find her in an NYC coffee shop, reading the news while she books a flight somewhere obscure. Follow her work at www.sarahabbottellis.com and her adventures @sarahaellis_ on Instagram and Twitter.
