Girl Talk: Meeting Up With My Ex Was Therapeutic

“I think it was the combination of the swelling pride, the nostalgia of seeing David again, and the wine on an empty stomach, that made me well up with tears as I sat back down next to David. I put my head down in my hands, trying to hide my face … I put my head on his shoulder. If anyone could understand how much this moment meant to me, it was David. He knew me during a really rough time in my career.”

The 10 Types Of Emotional Cripples

“Let’s face it — we’ve all got issues and sometimes need multiple attempts to surmount emotional obstacles. But some of us are better at dealing with them than others and, we would argue, women are better at working through emotional problems than men. In the last few years of dating, we’ve come across 10 types of guys we call “emotional cripples,” guys who may otherwise be awesome, but for some reason or another are stuck in emotional wheelchairs and the women in their lives are put in the position of either pushing them around or yelling “Get up and walk!” before heading out the door. Usually, these emotional ailments aren’t obvious right away — in the first few weeks and months of dating, as our best selves are presented, we’ve found ourselves thinking, Finally, a guy who isn’t crippled emotionally! But at some point, the curtain is pulled back just like in the “Wizard of Oz” and, yup, there’s the f**king wheelchair again.”

15 Dating Don’ts That’ll Kill Our Ladyflowers

“Vagina killers are the worst. Ex: Say you’re on a date with a perfectly charming, perfectly smart, perfectly handsome, perfectly eligible prince named Ryan or something. You are excited! Things are going well! And then he drops the one thing that will ensure your vagina is closed for business to him for all eternity. Like he tells you he has a great relationship with his cat; in fact, they are best friends. For a non-allergic cat lover, that might be a vagina awakener, but for me, a very allergic, non-cat loving person: vagina DOA.”

An Open Letter To My Single Self

“Hi. How are you this holiday season? Feeling a little hopeless? Downtrodden perhaps? Frustrated? Bitter? A little panicked about turning 32 with no potential prospects on the horizon?
