New Webseries: Girl gets the power to contact her past self, wastes it texting about boys

The totally twee webseries Dating Rules From My Future Self looks great — it's both pretty and peppy. But I find it incredibly concerning that once the main character starts getting text messages from her future self, her future self spends all her cosmic energy talking about boys. Sigh.

Here's the official run-down:

From the producers of Gossip Girl, the story of a twenty-something looking for love with the help of her two best friends and secret texts from her future self. Featuring Shiri Appleby (Life Unexpected), Taylor Kinney (The Vampire Diaries), and Bryce Johnson (Pretty Little Liars).

If future me could contact this character, I'm pretty sure she would text: KILL YURSELF. Ah well. Watch new episodes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the facebook page. Or you could just watch Jane Espenson's Husbands instead, because it's bloody brilliant.

To be fair. In the sublime The Girl Who Traveled Through Time a girl gets the ability to TRAVEL THROUGH TIME and uses it to keep her sister from eating her pudding.

Apparently boys use time travel to hit on their moms and step on butterflies. Girls use it to eat pudding and meet boys.
