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!

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…

Would You Be Happy Attending Natalie Portman’s All-Vegan Wedding?

celebs were jealous of

Natalie Portman and her dashing husband Benjamin Millepied had a beautiful wedding, and one that strictly honored their faith and culture.

For Saturday’s ceremony, Portman, 31, wasn’t frivolous – she didn’t have flowers flown in, but instead chose to decorate with wildflowers that naturally grow in the area of Big Sur, California where the wedding was held. According to People, Portman and Millepied also denounced traditional “fish and steak” options at their Jewish ceremony and instead only offered fare that kept with Portman’s strict vegan diet. (We hope it was yummy vegan food!) Read more…

Essential Tips For Traveling As A Couple

Taking your first vacation as a couple is a huge relationship milestone. Travel is stressful, no matter where you’re going or how many margaritas you’ve had. Will your relationship survive the journey or will it get left behind in paradise?  Here are three ways to ensure your love will outlast your vacation:

The 2012 Summer Olympics in London officially kick off today, but the United States has already taken home gold. Dating gold, that is.
