4 Tips For Surviving Wedding Season As A Single Gal

According to JDate’s resident dating coach Melissa Malka, “For singles, attending wedding after wedding can be a constant reminder that you’re not quite there yet.”

While we feel like we should protest, obviously there’s a lot of truth to that. Here are some tips from JDate, the Jewish online dating website, and Malka, on how to survive wedding season without making a drunken fool of yourself — or getting depressed about your single status. 

1. Start from the outside and work your way in. “I never (read: never) advise people to use their looks or appearance as the foundation for impacting their self-confidence and level of happiness, with one exception: weddings,” Malka advises. You never know who might be there (the bride’s cousin or the groom’s best friend from college perhaps?), and the wedding photos will be around forever — two very good reasons to look fabulous!

Post-Breakup Rebound? Why Men Move On So Fast

When I use the words “men” and “rebound” in the same sentence, male minds might quickly conjure up thoughts of their favorite NBA teams. Women, however, understand that I am addressing the phenomenon of rushing into a new relationship after the dissolution of an old one. And while men aren’t the only ones guilty of this relationship ricochet, they are, by far, the most-likely to engage in this particular type of reactionary behavior.

So, what causes men to so quickly move from a break-up with you to the arms of another woman? Read more …

10 Lessons Only A Slut Can Teach You

If I could have three wishes from a Genie they would be the following: Jason Giambi would happily agree to have sexwith me, drinking beer would dramatically improve my figure and the word “slut” would lose its negative connotation and become a widely accepted term of endearment far and wide. I’m pretty firm in my conviction that number twenty-three will eventually come around, but I’m afraid the other two wishes are a wee bit far-fetched. A girl can dream.

A girl can also embrace her “slut status” with grace and dignity. That’s right my friends. There are methods to the madness that is the promiscuous adult female. Sure, there are moments when she becomes completely crazy, but that’s half of the fun when you’re interacting with and living the life of a slut. Read more …

7 Ways To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse, Single Or Coupled Up

A homeless guy gets most of his face eaten by a crazy, naked cannibal under a bridge in Miami. A Japanese artist removes his own genitals and serves them up on a plate. The Chinese are eating roasted fetuses. The 24-year-old woman who lost body parts to a flesh-eating virus? Terrifying!

4 Ways To Help Your Man Fight Depression

You’ve noticed that your partner seems sad, irritable, or overly critical. Maybe he has expressed hopelessness or guilt. You have noticed a loss of interest in his usual activities, concentration trouble, or changes in his sleep pattern. All these could be signs that your man is struggling with some form of depression.

Depression isn’t only hard for him; mood disturbances also have a big impact on your relationship. But how do you bring up the subject? Many men have difficulty talking about their feelings in the first place. The prospect of having a mental healthdisorder is difficult to hear for anyone. Even gentle suggestions that the problem may lie within himself will likely not be appreciated.

As the saying goes, “People don’t care what you know until they know that you care.” So what can you do to help? Let me start by explaining what not to do.

1. Don’t say “Look on the bright side.” People with depression may have a long list of what is wrong with the world. You as a non-depressed person may not agree and will want to convince your partner otherwise. Read more …
