I Married The Last Real Man

I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m happily married to a man’s man, a gentleman, a scholar, a romantic. He can cook if he’s going to starve, manages the finances and the house, is the primary breadwinner, looks good in a pair of jeans, likes sports and beer, and takes good care of me. He’…

Making Friends Is Like Dating

Of the 11 guests who recently got wasted at my apartment, I’d guess that approximately zero could tell you my sister’s name.

I doubt any would know if my parents are still together or who the latest guy I dated was. Maybe half would know I grew up in Texas. A casual observer might…

I Dumped My Boyfriend Because He Didn’t Want To Have A Baby

Among some photos from a trip to New York I took a few years ago is a shot of me in the middle of a department store, holding a beautiful 3-month-old baby girl. I look like a proud mom on a much-deserved shopping trip. But Lila isn’t my little girl. She’s my sister’s. And, at…

I Spent $700 On Eyelash Extensions

First there was the initial application. That cost $400. Then the touch-ups every three weeks at $100 each.

Yes, I’m aware it sounds like a coke addict’s tally after a heavy binge. But I’m talking about eyelash extensions. I blew $700 on my eyelashes in two months. I know, it sounds crazy, but those…

When Your Girlfriend’s Boyfriend Is Gay

What’s the only thing worse than finding out your man is cheating on you? According to the author of The Straight-Up Truth About the Down-Low, it’s finding out that he’s stepping out on the side … with another dude.

Would You Hire An Online Dating Assistant?

In the world of online dating, it’s a tale as old as time: You meet somebody online who’s funny. Genuine. Charming. Until the IRL date happens … and you find out that he’s not quite the person you found yourself engaging in witty banter with on the Internet.

Virtual dating assistants exist exactly for…

I Removed My Breasts

For the last five months, I’ve been walking around with one-and-a-half breasts. The reason: My breast reconstruction, a two-part surgical process that began with expanders and will end with the implants I’ll get tomorrow, didn’t exactly go according to plan following the prophylactic mastectomy I had two days before Christmas.

Due to this post-o…

Is Being Cheap A Dealbreaker?

Your man displays any number of great qualities: kindness, the ability to keep his mouth shut during a movie, a willingness to entertain your “does this make me look fat?” clothes-modeling ritual, an unwillingness to splash out any cash any time you two go out …

Hold up — what was that last one…

I Fell In Love With A Gay Man

I am prepared to make a confession for the sake of womankind. I’ve given it a lot of thought (arguably too much) and decided it’s time to come clean for all the girls out there who’ve been down the same road. My message: You are not alone, and you are not to blame.

One Man Says Stalking Is A Good Thing

when stalking pays off: one guy asked the same girl out for years.There is something to be said for consistency. Take me, for example. I’ve consistently asked out the same girl, once every eight to 14 months, for the past five years. She’s consistently rejected me. Some might call this foolish, like Ralph Waldo Emerso…

One Woman Gets The Bird Poop Facial

The geisha lifestyle might seem like a far cultural cry from any modern woman’s daily routine, yet aspects of the Japanese ladies’ arduous beauty regimen certainly haven’t fallen out of vogue.

As I write this, my face feels soft and my complexion looks bright, and while I can generally chalk up those delights to…

Does A Boring Sex Life Give A Guy The Right To Cheat?

Standing by the side of an unfaithful husband may get you some shaking heads of disapproval, but it still happens all the time.

So when Silda Wall held herself responsible for her husband Eliot Spitzer’s extramarital affair with a hooker, we got kind of riled up. Sure, it takes two for a marriage to…

A Guy Reveals Why He Wants You, Not Porn

How much porn have I watched in my life? I don’t know, how many breaths have you taken?

No, no, I’m exaggerating. How many times have you said “like”?

Here’s the thing: When it comes to having sex, most people don’t actually want it to be like the porn they love. At all.

What’s The Weirdest Thing You’ve Ever Found In Your Bra?

What’s a girl to do when you go out drinking sans purse and pockets? Your ID and phone sure aren’t walking themselves to the bar. If you’re anything like CJ and her well-endowed friends, you let your bra do double duty as both rack support and small-item storage.
