Huffington Post - 3 months
When it comes to dating, “Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik has a lot to learn.  In a new video, the 40-year-old actress ― and notable smartypants ― gets quizzed on modern dating and all the complicated terminology that goes along with it. What does it mean to ghost someone, for instance?  “Spying on them...on the Internet?” she guesses.  Uh, wrong answer. But considering Bialik holds a doctorate in neuroscience and hasn’t actively dated in 20 years, we won’t fault her for it.
