#firstworldproblems: The guy you’re dating complains that your Twitter feed makes you sound single. But how are you supposed to behave in that interlude between casually dating and making it official? Our social media behavior says a lot about what relationship stage we are in. But as this Funny or Die video video proves, following each other Instagram does not necessarily equal an exclusive relationship. Read more at Tres Sugar…

Everybody remembers flashy celebrity weddings (and the often times disastrous marriages that follow), but what about the flings that came before? What about the strange hookups and relationships that some celebs would rather leave buried? Well, we dug them up! Read more at Your Tango…
If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that relationships are tough. Even the strongest of bonds are sometimes tested, and temptation becomes a gauge of your willpower and test of your loyalty.
When faced with this situation in my own life, I’ve handled it in three different ways… Keep reading »
Everyone has their own opinions on and definitions of love, but perhaps the most ridiculous, must-read explanations of this noblest of emotions come from the users of Urban Dictionary. Sometimes cynical, always funny, these quips are not to be missed. Read more at Your Tango…
Anyone who’s ever had their heart broken can tell you that shit hurts way more deeply and intensely than a stubbed toe or sprained ankle. This video by AsapScience explains the various scientific factors (Brain activity! Evolution!) that come together to create the very real pain of heartbreak. Fascinating stuff. Next I’m looking forward to science proving that a pint of Ben & Jerry’s is the one true cure, because based on my extensive field work, it totally is. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]
This flyer (click here for larger image), spotted on a pole in NYC, was posted by male human being and soon-to-be great author, Koji Frahm. The 26-year-old Brooklyn resident took his own version of Craigslist Casual Encounters to the streets, but not in a sexual way. Rather, he hopes that his proposition for naked tea will “be the conceptual Trojan Horse for an experience that most people desperately want but would never consider.” Also, he needs to
earn money go beyond words to finish the next draft of his book which he is certain will “change people’s lives.” As far as why he chose tea specifically? Koji finds it to be the the least intimidating drink that would still be “partway understandable to your average streetwalker.” Does the average streetwalker drink tea? Just wondering. ANYHOO … Koji is reaching out his hand to you and all you have to do is not be afraid to invite a NAKED STRANGER over for for an experience that is interesting, radical and mutually beneficial. Still not convinced? I will leave you with a quote from the man himself:
“My book is a book unlike any book I’ve ever read (and I’ve read many). Let me put it this way. The ocean makes a sound, yes? You hear a noise in your ear of your imagination, whether it’s waves or a deep gurgling. And no matter what you say about it, that is the sound of the sea. It cannot be denied.”
See that red, squiggly thing on Sinead O’Connor’s cheek that looks like a toddler doodled on her with a pen? That’s her new face tattoo and it’s not actually a squiggle. It’s the initials BQ, which stands for Brendan Quinlan. Remember how Sinead started blogging about being single and considering having sex with a yam and then she met someone and married him for 16 days? Well, Brendan Quinlan is not that guy. He’s someone else. At a performance last week, she told the audience that she got her new ink to remind the guy that betrayed her. Then she put up a post on her website that said:
“Face Tattoo…Brendan Quinlan.. ‘It’s what it is’.. Un ange passe ; ) There’s a bottle of Agent Provocateur in someone’s room that belongs to me.”

It began with the mutual love of a band that I truly did like: The Specials. She was into ska … heavily into ska.Way more into ska than more high school aged kids should ever be.
I met Delia at the mall, where every high school kid hung out, sulked, loitered, and snuck cigarettes. In a sea of black tees and torn hoodies I spotted her in her plaid pants, checkered belt and suspenders. Through her second-hand, plaid blazer, I could see her No Doubt T-shirt. Immediately, I knew I wanted her and would do whatever it took to win her over.
I had only ever listened to punk and had never considered ska an option until she asked me to accompany her to a Reel Big Fish show in downtown Hartford. As she skanked through the crowd (that’s a ska dance move for those who are unfamiliar), I began to feel pangs of intense attraction. After the show, we sat in my car and she introduced me to more ska music. Prince Buster from the ’60s, The Specials from the ’70′s, the English Beat from the ’80s, and some of the best No Doubt B-sides from the ’90s. I was more into her than the music, but the two became synonymous. When I thought of Delia, I thought of ska. We kissed and I knew what I had to do if I wanted to keep dating her: become a ska fan.

“It’s not you, it’s me.” How many times have you heard that? How many times have you comforted a heartbroken friend by telling them that there’s nothing wrong with them, they just happen to have picked a poor partner? How many times have you thought that for yourself?
Here’s a hard truth to learn: Sometimes it really is you. Keep reading »
