Is Your Spouse A … Stranger?

It can be difficult to stay connected to our loved ones in today’s hectic world. We struggle to keep friendships strong with coffee dates and quick emails, and we diligently pencil in phone calls to our grandparents even when we’re swamped. But our romantic relationships rarely receive the same type of attention that our friends and families do, and the results can be devastating. Imagine looking across the kitchen table at the familiar contours of your husband’s face … and realizing that the man you married now feels like a total stranger. Keep reading »

What To Expect From Love In 2011

Let’s face it: The world is still a scary, unstable and uncertain place. What’s here today may very well be gone tomorrow, whether it be our 401ks, our jobs or our relationships. Last Thanksgiving, the world stood rapt in wonder at the trials and tribulations of Tiger Woods. As 2010 unfolded, our interest turned to disgust as we collectively pronounced “This Man IS NOT a role model.” We later watched with surprise as celebrity couple after celebrity couple, once seemingly happy, suddenly split. Doesn’t anybody stay together anymore? David and Courteney—not you guys, too? Keep reading »

Twitter is practically the 21st century’s answer to a personal publicist. So, it’s no wonder that everyone with a smartphone seems to have taken to the site to publicly make up, break up, seal the deal or prove how similar or different their relationship is to, say, those of Tiger Woods or Sandra Bullock. All year long you could find tween heartthrobs, California Girls and even half-naked deodorant peddlers tweeting their hearts out. Join us as we take a stroll down memory lane to check out our top 10 salacious, romantic, heart-wrenching and flirtatious Twitter stories of 2010. Keep reading »

The Worst Fashion Trends Of 2010

Single? Not sure why? Blame your closet. We haven’t exactly been shy about expressing our fashion preference when it comes to the opposite sex—I recently opined about the horrors of message tees, turtlenecks, and khakis on men, and male dating expert Abraham Lloyd weighed in the horrors of baby doll dresses and jeggings on women (sigh).

The Weirdest Love Stories Of 2010

Despite having the most information (ever) at our fingertips and the greatest likelihood (ever) of being caught and made an object of public scorn and ridicule for doing dumb things, we are living in an age of people doing really dumb stuff. Sure, people have always done super ridiculous stuff (like creating the Anglican church) but, somewhere between “Say Anything” and “Jackass,” we started making a bunch of questionable calls about love and relationships. Here are the most interesting things we learned from the past year’s worth of weird news. Keep reading »

Here are ten common holiday fights couples have during the holidays and how to avoid them. Keep reading »

I Got Proposed To By Santa Claus

Christmastime always transformed me.

It made my heart expand in my chest, placing me in perpetual rapture for at least two months out of the year. I was inevitably intoxicated by the twinkling lights, the smell of cookies baking, our family’s annual trip to the tattered Christmas display at Fountains of Wayne. Keep reading »

How Moving In With My Parents Saved My Marriage

A little more than a year ago, a study was released that claimed couples who live together before marriage are more likely to get divorced than couples who don’t shack up before they wed. I found that interesting, as my fiancé had just moved in with me and my parents around the time that study came out. Keep reading »

What Relationship Trends Ruled 2010?

Once upon a time, people used to meet a cute singleton, fall in and out of love, have a string of failed relationships, stumble upon The One and live happily ever after. Or else they grew closer and closer to a close friend of the opposite sex, eventually declared their love for each other and lived happily ever after. Or they went on a string of bad online dates only to discover that their soulmate was working in the next cubicle, and they lived happily ever after. Or perhaps this is just the impression we’ve received from watching movies like “High Fidelity,” “When Harry Met Sally,” and “Kissing Jessica Stein.” Keep reading »
