If you feel like you missed the class that taught everything you needed to know about dating and you just can’t make these things called relationships work, you may be stuck in some unhealthy romantic patterns. These default strategies can often kick in without us even knowing it — from the moment those first crushy feelings arise and take hold until the relationship inevitably crashes and burns and sometimes beyond, making it difficult to get over a guy and move on with your dating life. Ironically, the very behaviors you engage in to get into a healthy, loving, committed relationship do just the opposite, leaving you in tremendous pain and feeling like you’re destined to be alone forever. Looking back at the wreckage of your relationship history, you’ll know if it’s time to cleanse your dating palate of the chaotic and destructive patterns that have gotten you to where you are, overwhelmed by loneliness and afraid you’ll be perpetually single. Click through to see some of the biggest offenders and suggestions for how to let them go. If you can break these deadly dating patterns, you might have a shot at that love thing after all. Even though you clearly missed that day in class. I think all of us did.

After 13 years and two kids, the couple’s longtime relationship has hit the rocks. Inside the secretive stars troubled love life.
As much as I don’t want to believe it, it’s People. People never gets it wrong, and especially not on the cover. I’m interpreting this story as one of sad truth. In honor of Johnny and Vanessa’s time together, here’s a look back at some of the couple’s appearances over the past 13 years. I wish all the best for them and their children.
Happy Hump Day! And it’s a special day indeed — we’ve got Winona showing up for “What Are We Wearing”! Here’s how we’re keepin’ it stylish on both the East and West Coast…
It’s a new year, and I’m a new me, well at least in some ways. I’ve vowed to make the first move on occasion and learn how to be kinder to myself. The final frontier is my personal style. Instead of dealing with the stuff in my closet that I don’t know how to wear, I like to buy new stuff. That needs to stop.

I challenged NYC textile designer, stylist and fashion blogger Stefany Mohebban to dig through my closet and see if she could help me create some entirely new looks from my already existing wardrobe, focusing on the pieces that stumped me most. Click through to see the style magic she worked on me.

To make the journey slightly more pleasant, we’ve selected a some of the candidates’ more attractive assets — specifically their hottie sons. We thought some eye candy couldn’t hurt (And okay, okay, so Jon Huntsman Jr. just took himself out of the race). What’s a little objectification in the name of preserving the Democratic process, after all?
Between videos of tiny monkeys twirling umbrellas, pictures of baby pandas, and the recent headline that scientists have discovered “Hasselhoff Crabs” in Antarctica, it’s obvious that our world is full of weirdly awesome animals.
