The Terrible (But True) Reality Of Facebook Relationship Schadenfreude

I’m not going to lie: I’m in post-breakup emotional triage mode. This means I notice more than ever when other people are wearing wedding rings, and whether or not their Facebook status says “single” or “in a relationship.” I guess it’s because my heart is feeling so raw and scarred that I am especially attune to these things. Something awful I have to admit: It makes me feel slightly better when I learn that a couple I know has broken up. I’m not talking close friends — of course I feel horrible for them and want to do everything in my power to make them feel better. I mean those friends who are more acquaintances — who I know more about through their random Facebook status updates than anything else. I wouldn’t wish relationship problems on anyone, of course, but when I see that someone else is going through a breakup I feel less alone.

Would You Defend A Gay Kid Coming Out To His Mom?

In the following clip from the ABC show “What Would You Do?” a teenage boy comes out to his mom and she berates him mercilessly. Will a good Samaritan step in and say something to the irate and upset mother? Or will people simply consider the exchange a private matter? It’s a tough question–about the dueling right of a family to handle issues privately, and the desire to step in to protect a hurting child. So what would you do? [ABC via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

A Completely Arbitrary Graph Of Sexy And Unsexy Dude Professions

Go ahead and take issue with our completely arbitrary list of sexy and unsexy professions: we get that it may be hard to understand why a pizza guy is sexy to us (um, they smell like pizza) and a fry guy is so totally not (fry grease makes us gag). And yes, our definition of high-paying and low-paying is definitely ball park — we define high-paying as definitely way above minimum wage and low-paying as closer to it. And sure, there are probably some ice cream truck guys who rake in the dough and some IT guys who are just scraping by. However, we do want to point out that in assembling this list we’ve come to realize that we’ve almost exclusively dated low-paying sexy dudes. And a lot of drummers. Keep reading »

Want A Man? Wear A Hat

Ladies, having trouble attracting a man (AND HOW)? Then grab a bowler hat. That’s right: a bowler hat. According to Daily Mail writer Deborah Francis-White, a jaunty cap will do the trick to attract a mate. Says Francis-White:

“I’ve worn a bowler hat and the effect is extraordinary. When I walk down the street dressed ­normally, nothing happens. If I walk down the street in a bowler, a man will say at least five times a day: ‘Nice hat!’ — which I read as a more acceptable way of saying: ‘Nice breasts!’”

Or, maybe you’re just wearing a stupid hat? Keep reading »

Mary-Kate Olsen is quite a little blond enigma–and we’re not the only ones who think so. Comedienne Elaine Carroll agrees.
