Girl Talk: There’s More To Me Than My Google Search Results

After a bit of a hiatus, I reactivated my online dating account in July. I got lots of messages in those first few weeks, but only one person stood out to me as someone I might like to meet in person. Ryan* and I messaged back and forth a few times and then he suggested we meet for a drink. To make the arrangements, we switched to email and that’s how I learned his full name. Armed with that information, I did what I almost always do in advance of a first date — Google the person to make sure he’s not wanted by the FBI, a convicted rapist, or a Christian rock musician. Ryan* was none of these things, thank goodness, but I did stumble upon some other unsavory information during my research: his political views — which he expressed on an occasionally used Twitter account and in conversations with a couple friends on his Google Buzz page — were vastly different from mine.

“Blue Valentine” Gets NC-17 Rating Overturned

We’ve been gearing up for the Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams movie, “Blue Valentine,” for ages now. And so we weren’t happy when the movie was given an NC-17 rating due to an implied oral sex scene. What this means, in the grand scheme of things, is that the Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA) hates female sexual pleasure. And indie filmmakers. And indie actors.

But luckily, they just overturned their decision, which means I take back those mean things I just said about them. But I’m still skeptical of their intentions. Keep reading »

Style 911: I’m Meeting My Boyfriend’s Parents At Their Holiday Party

My boyfriend had the bright idea to introduce me to his parents for the first time at their annual holiday party. Fortunately, the party is taking place at their home so it’s more casual than formal. Unfortunately, I have no idea what to wear. Please help me! – Beth

Wow! That’s a doozy. You’re meeting your boyfriend’s parents and all their family and friends on their turf. If there ever was a time to be impressive, now is that time … not to put any pressure on you. I’ve found that “casual” means something different to everyone. Someone might wear a pair of pajama pants for a casual meeting. While for me, “casual” means jeans and heels. So I’ve found that in most “casual” situations it’s best to be slightly dressier. That way you can blend in with the crowd regardless of how they’re dressed. Of course this isn’t the only advice I have for you, Beth. After the jump, find some specific outfit suggestions for meeting your boyfriend’s parents and attending their holiday party. Keep reading »
