Fancy Babies Have Their Own Hot Tubs Now

Babies are so lazy. They lie back in their strollers and get pushed around everywhere. They’re given everything they want just by screaming and crying. They’ve even got people wiping their butts. Babies just got even more obnoxious: that is, the babies with their very own hot tub. A bath and shower company has launched the $2,185 BluBleu hot tub for very fancy babies. Ten air jets will pump bubbles on their tiny tuchuses and underwater LEDs will emit blue, indigo and violet lights for “chromotherapy,” aka color therapy. We’re certain these babies will land themselves in actual therapy when they outgrow this miniature hot tub in 12 months.  [The Week]

His teeny little profile picture was cute. He was the right age range and city. But when I opened the online dating message from this random dude, this is what he said:

Isn’t feminism a little obsolete? Men and women are equal nowadays. In fact, the balance is tipped in your favor.

Of all the things for a man to comment upon in my profile, he chose to kinda-insulted me by calling my belief system “obsolete”? I rolled my eyes. I hit delete. Another one bites the dust.

I’d been “negged.”  Keep reading »

Doing my time online dating, I’ve developed strong opinions about a lot of things. Handlebar mustaches? NO. Ayn Rand followers? Next. Men who tell girls not to contact them if you’re “crazy”? I hope you die alone! (Also, does any woman actually self-diagnose as “crazy”?)

My strongest opinion  when it comes to dating — which has become the subject of many an impassioned Frisky office debate — is the ideal location for a first date. I’ve noticed that lots of guys have the best intentions when it comes to picking a first date spot but oftentimes fail.  Maybe this is not a problem for people who live in the ‘burbs or small cities; perhaps there is a “town center” where all the restaurants and bars are located. But in larger cities with complicated public transit systems — Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, D.C., my home turf of New York City — a lady could end up traveling an hour-plus getting to a date. And then have to sell her firstborn child to pay for it.

So I thought I’d offer a few thoughts — for dudes and girls alike, it’s 2012 people! — on how to pick a place for a first date. Keep reading »
