Do You Make Excuses For The Person You’re Dating?

A friend of mine sent the following quote to me today:

“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.” – Author Unknown

This quote is stunningly perfect. I wish I had this in my 20s, although I might not have completely understood this as I do now. It truly sums up how many of us have felt inrelationships when we have put the other person first over and over again and coming in maybe tenth with them in their lives. I don’t think I need to elaborate too much on this statement, other than please remember to read this as many times as necessary when you find yourself here. Have it become your mantra and do not make excuses for why the person you are dating is not making you a priority. Read more …

5 On-Screen Couples Who Should Take Their Love Off-Screen

The summer is ending, which means we won’t be seeing too many more celebs-on-the-beach photos. (Wait, who are we kidding? Life is one long vacation for the rich and famous.)

However, we will get to see a fair share of awesome TV shows coming back this fall! We can’t wait to glue ourselves to the tube and watch the romances blossom between these five couples on our favorite series. In fact, they should probably take their romances off-screen, too. The chemistry is just too good! Here are five TV couples we think should date in real life:

1. Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester: ”Gossip Girl.” Come on, you know that their chemistry on-screen is pretty obvious — and to think that it all started in season one in the back of his limo. Read more …

In Defense Of The Anal Tattoo

Why are we so taken by Maria Louise Del Rosario’s choice of tattoo placement? Is it because we cringe at the presumed pain and feel like we have to share our collective “ouch” in a social media reflex? Is it because we all still like to say “anus” (it is a fun word), kind of an ode to our inner 12-year-old? Or is it because (for some) the anus still remains one of the last sexual roads less often traveled? Read more…

Ways He Says ...
guys
I love you. Guys have their own special ways. Read More »

Has this ever happened to you? You meet a new guy for coffee and have a great first date. He was easy to talk to, had a good sense of humor and had good answers to your questions. You feel tentatively positive. The week goes by. He texts once or twice, but does not ask about the weekend.

Then, he finally calls you, on Friday, to talk about the weekend. “Are you free tonight?” he asks. Well, you purposely left the weekend open hoping he would call. So you say, “Yes”. You go out and have another great date. It is so nice to talk to a man who you can have a great conversation. You smile, laugh and share similar ideas about life.

Then, you don’t hear from him all week, except for some texting. This time, you can’t take it. You want to know what is going to happen for the weekend. You can’t stand this waiting game. You assume, of course, you will have a date. Read more …

10 Things Women Think Impress Men, But Don’t

Like it or not, first impressions do matter. Second and third impressions do too — especially in the dating world. Admit it, you want to be wanted and liked by your suitor. We all do! No man or woman wants to be told they’re not the best choice or the most favorable candidate for love. The trouble is that our desire to be liked often drives us to be someone other than ourselves.

Some of us never show up for dates (especially the first ones), because we’ve sent our representatives instead — a make believe character that you think the person sitting across the table will find more interesting than you. It seems like a brilliant idea at the time, but your “rep” could cost you the date. Read more …

5 Myths About Kinky Sex From “50 Shades Of Grey”

As someone who has identified as kinky for over a decade, both professionally and personally, I have to admit I was absolutely appalled when the 50 Shades trilogy first hit the mainstream. I read all three books, and as I read some of the myths and stereotypes, I had to do some deep breathing.

I couldn’t help thinking, “These are the books that have become the cultural reference point for kink?” As I thought this, a bit of my kinky little heart broke. But, my opinion has changed since then.

I still think the books are poorly written and that there is much better erotica out there. Regardless, these are the books that have everyone talking about sex and kink. At this point, the value of that far outweighs some tired writing clichés. Read more…
