10 Lies Nicholas Sparks Told Us About Love

10 Lies Nicholas Sparks Told Us About Love

Sure, we don’t turn down our friend when she suggests going to see the latest Nicholas Sparks film adaptation. (Um, hello, major eye candy!) But as we’re downing our Sour Patch Kids and Diet Coke, we’re also rolling our eyes and contemplating giving the movie the middle finger.

It’s like we’ve seen the same movie 10 times over! Passionate kiss in the rain? Ick. Romantic boat rides? Ugh. Fate stepping in? Vomit.

You think you know everything about love, Sparks? We’re here to tell you that you don’t—and we’ve had to learn that from real-life experience and heartache.

We’re done playing your fool. Just look at all these lies you’ve told us over the years! Read more on Your Tango…

21 Signs You’re Addicted To “The Bachelor”

21 Signs You're Addicted To "The Bachelor"

We all love our reality television and look forward to our weekly ‘dates’ with Chris Harrison. But if you’ve been there since Alex Michael, know Bob Guiney’s birthday, and consider Tenley Molzahn a friend, it might be something more for you.

If that’s the case, we’re not here to judge. No way. You’re part of a really cool group of people called ‘Bachelor Nation.’ Because let’s face it: If loving The Bachelorfranchise is wrong, we don’t want to be right.

So here are a few tell-tale signs that when it comes to “The Bachelor(ette),” you’re more than just a casual fan. Read more on Your Tango…

Love Lessons From “Saved By The Bell”

Love Lessons From Saved By The Bell

Zack, Kelly, Slater, Jessie, Lisa, and yes, even Screech. Our favorite high school gang taught us countless lessons about friendships, hardships, and the most confusing of all — love.

“Saved by the Bell” isn’t just an iconic ’90s TV show; it spoke to a generation. The show dealt with real teen issues (I’m so excited, I’m so excited … I’m so scared, Zack!) and matters of the heart. From Zack and Kelly’s breakups and makeups to Slater and Jessie’s whole ‘opposites attract’ M.O., look back at all the love lessons they taught us back in ’93. You’ll be surprised how wise these kids were—Mr. Belding would be so proud! Read more on Your Tango…

9 Thirtysomething Dating Mistakes

6 harsh realities of online dating

Let’s start off strong here, folks: if you don’t pick up any tips in the dating game in your 20s, suffice it say that your 30s ain’t looking so good, either. Before you write off everyone for all the wrong reasons, just remember that as you age, the stakes get higher.

Maybe you’re busy fighting societal norms or embracing your inner Betty Draper, but no matter what your status, the truth remains: Your friends are settling down. Some are starting families. At the very least, you’re tired of being the only friend without a Plus One to drag to all the parties. What to do? That’s a question for another time.

For now, let’s focus what to stop doing. Read more on Your Tango…

5 Tips For Avoiding Dating Burnout

5 Tips For Avoiding Dating Burnout

“I’m just not going to date for awhile,” is a frequent refrain I hear from my clients. There’s often a lack of enthusiasm and resolve in the delivery, signaling ambivalence. You’re probably familiar with the idea of burnout with respect to repetitive, boring jobs, or highly stressful work situations. Fatigue and a lack of interest in your work are among the signs. Actually, you can burnout on almost anything, including dating. These are the telltale signs of dating burnout and strategies to avoid it:

1. Lackluster interest in new dates. You must begin to ask yourself why you’re pursuing someone at all if you can barely muster the enthusiasm to get ready. Or perhaps you’ve lowered the bar too much and your dates really aren’t interesting.  It’s time to focus on something else. Read more on Your Tango…

7 Teenage Hookup Games You Should Play As An Adult

7 Teenage Hookup Games You Should Play As An Adult

The funniest part about hook-up games, aside from the obvious, is that they typically commence at an age you aren’t really “hooking-up” much at all. At least not to the point where these games can really get interesting. Not that a good make out isn’t, arguably, the best thing ever.

Although, let’s be honest: these days hook-up games are likely not even being played by today’s youth anymore. In fact, I’d be shocked if anyone under the age of 21 has even heard of most of these. Not that I blame them, it’s a different era — who needs a riveting match of spin the bottle when you can just hop on Tinder or Adult Friend Finder?

Well, for now we’re going to forget this digital age, and the borderline disturbing ease in which it enables getting booty. Instead, we’re going relive the glory days of literally being tongue tied due to nerves with these seven games from the past … some may even call it seven minutes of heaven. And by some, I mean no one born in the ’90s.

1. Truth or Dare. Of all sexual games out there, this one is probably the only one that will continue to stand the test of time. Perhaps that’s because of it’s overwhelming versatility — from making someone run down the block naked to getting your friend to admit his secret crush, there’s really no end to the hijinks that can ensue.
