10 Steps To Erasing Your Ex’s Digital Footprint

Breakups are tough. Handling your new status on social media can be even more awkward (just ask Demi Moore, aka @MrsKutcher). After a heartbreaking end, it’s only tempting to obsess over every tweet, check-in and post that your ex shares online, and in fact, most of us admit to doing it, but it doesn’t make us happier.

So what do you do when your entire relationship has been documented, from your “first date” status to becoming “Facebook official” to those sappy, not-so subtle Beyonce lyrics you posted after your big fight? Delete, block, untag!

We’ve outlined the 10 steps you need to take in order to erase your ex’s trace on Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere else you had a digital connection. Read more…

10 Ways To Erase Your Ex From Your Life

It’s not an easy thing to do — erasing someone you used to love from your life. It’s more than difficult, to be honest. It rips at every part of your being, both physically and emotionally, but it must be done.

You can’t move on without letting go, and the first step is getting rid of the tangible items that are glaring reminders. It will be tough at first, but in the long run, you will have spared yourself additional pain. Read more…

6 Gender Stereotypes Around The World

It’s easy to think that some behaviors are just inherently male or female. Boys like to play with trucks. Girls like to play with dolls. Men propose marriage, women take their husband’s last name. But what may be normal in the Western World isn’t necessarily around the world.

See what we discovered about gender norms across the globe.

1. Belgium: Boys Wear Pink

When it’s time to paint a baby’s bedroom or pick out an outfit, many of us immediately choose pink for girls and blue for boys. But it wasn’t always that way, and, in some places, it still isn’t. Up until the early 20th century, the opposite was true — blue was considered feminine and pink was considered masculine. Pink was thought to be stronger, and blue was thought to be dainty, hence the gender distinction. In contemporary Belgium, this is still considered normal. Read more…

Restoration Era Sex Manual Is Finally On Sale

You know how the Victorian era was all fainting couches and chastity belts? Evidently, the Restoration era* was off the chain.

Per The Guardian, a book called Aristotle’s Compleat Master-Piece is now being brought to auction. While the book was originally published in an era best referred to as the Restoration, around 1680, the copy in question was produced somewhere in the neighborhood of 1760 in the so-called Georgian era.

Art, architecture and smut (fine, pornography and erotica) has coexisted since the first cave bro sketched a spear going from his crotch into a cave woman’s crotch rather than from his hand into a mastodon’s keister. Tell me that pyramids don’t remind you of early man trying to cover his turgidity with a gauzy linen sheet. Read more…

Heidi Klum On Divorce From Seal: “It’s Not What I Wanted”

While divorce may be something families dread, supermodel Heidi Klum prefers to look at the silver lining.

“Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No,” Heidi Klum told Marie Claire about her divorce from Seal. “But everyone is healthy. We’re moving on with our lives. If someone got [very sick] — god forbid — that would be a real problem. It’s not what I wanted. It’s not what anyone wanted. But it’s not a real problem.”

Klum, who filed for divorce last April after seven years with Seal, is now dating her bodyguard Martin Kirsten — who is close to her age. At 39, Klum has no intentions of becoming a ”cougar.” Read more…

5 Love Lessons Season 1 Of “Girls” Taught Us

After months of waiting, it’s finally almost time for new season of “Girls.” Tonight, season 2 premieres, and while we haven’t seen it yet, we can practically guarantee more awkwardness, laugh-out-loud dialogue, and of course, those unbelievably relatable relationship moments.

Until the premiere, hold yourself over with these love lessons we learned from the Brooklyn quartet.

1. Tell Him How You Feel

In Hannah’s best moment of honesty, we see her tell her then-hookup Adam, who sent her a racy picture meant for someone else, how she really feels. No, she doesn’t want him to take her to brunch or be her boyfriend, she just wants him to be obsessed with her and want to sleep with only her. (Sound familiar?) As much as we giggled during this epic monologue, this was a huge moment for Hannah and the audience. It’s the first time she’s telling Adam what she wants. It’s refreshing and empowering. Finally, she’s not just going along with a strange or uncomfortable sex request. Read more…
