19 Secrets You Shouldn’t Tell Your Boyfriend

The foundation of any strong relationship is honesty. That’s why your partner should trust that the details you’re omitting are for their own good. Before you go ruining a good thing with the “truth,” here are some secrets you better keep from him. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “Always The Rebound, Never The Boyfriend”

Just about my whole life I have been the “rebound guy” for most of my relationships. I have a knack for meeting women who have just exited a long relationship and once I help heal their broken hearts, I’m dumped. For the last year and a half, I’ve been dating a woman who, you guessed it, was just out of a four-year relationship when we met. Learning from past experiences, I didn’t hold any expectations or try too hard to get a commitment. As such, our relationship has been pretty on and off: we’ll go on a date, then she’ll disappear for a few weeks, then I’ll hear back. Rinse and repeat. I know I have not landed this plane crash in the “friend zone” because there is sex. Whether or not I veered into “booty call zone” is unclear, though certainly possible. When we first started seeing each other she specifically mentioned she was not looking to get back into a relationship, which I totally understood and agreed with. So my question for you would be this: what is the statute of limitations when it comes to a rebound relationship? Is the next person you are with after a long relationship automatically the “rebound,” be it three months or three years later? Should I let her get the “rebounding” out of her system with some other schmuck and then I’d no longer be the rebound? But then, if I do that, I run the risk of her meeting Mr. Anti-Schmuck neurosurgeon who owns three yachts. And, maybe, I was already the rebound guy and there’s no hope? — Rebound Guy

Girl Talk: I Sabotaged A Great Relationship To Have A Drink With An Ex

The evening started out harmless enough. My self-sabotage was not premeditated—more like a white lie that got carried away. I was on my way to class to take a test I hadn’t studied for, and I realized I just couldn’t do it. On a whim, I decided to ditch. I needed a drink, stat. I was supposed to meet up with my new guy, Kennedy, after class but he was working late and wouldn’t be ready until later. I went through my mental contact book of friends I had in the area and remembered that my ex-boyfriend Justin worked down the street. As soon as I sent him a text message, he responded. I wrote Kennedy to let him know I was skipping the test and meeting a friend for a drink.

Girl Talk: I’m Not Beautiful (And That’s OK)

When I turned 30, I was suddenly hot.

Before then I was OK. Cute at best. I had my awkward years, of course. As a baby, I had gravity-defying hair and bulldog cheeks. At 13, I wore glasses and braces, and was one of just a few Asian kids in a Jewish-Italian neighborhood, where big Bambi eyes, pert noses, and long legs were all the rage. In college I gained the freshman 15, lost it, gained it, lost it, and gained it again. Keep reading »

10 Most Common Lies Men And Women Tell

It turns out Susannah wasn’t too far off yesterday when she posted those universal lies women tell. A new study, which polled 3,000 adults, discovered that while both sexes lie, men fib an average of 1,092 lies per year — roughly three a day — while women lie an average of 728 times a year, or about twice a day. Maybe not too surprising, men feel less guilty about lying while 82 percent of women say lying “eats away at their conscience.” The most popular female lie? “Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine.” Men tend to lie more about their drinking. The good news is that while moms get lied to the most, only 10 percent of those polled said they are likely to deceive their romantic partners. Um, liars? Perhaps another plus, 75 percent of men and women agreed that telling a white lie was OK to spare someone’s feelings. “Lying may seem to be an unavoidable part of human nature but it’s an important part of social interaction,’ said Katie Maggs, associate medical curator at the Science Museum, which commissioned the study. After the jump, check out the ten most common lies told by men and women.

Quotable: Antonio Banderas Won’t Sword Fight Guys Who Try To Date His Daughter

“I have one date night with my daughter every week. I take her for dinner by herself … and we can talk, spend some time together. My daughter, at 13 years old, is way more mature than me. She is very selective, she knows exactly what she wants. Her heart is going to be broken sometimes, and she has to learn from those things, too. It’s called ‘life.’ She has to live that herself.”

—Antonio Banderas tells People about his daughter Stella and why he’s not freaked out by the idea of her starting to date soon [People] Keep reading »

Universal Lies Women Tell

By “universal lies,” I think what is written on this man’s T-shirt is supposed to be a list of lies that we all tell. But it’s not really gender-neutral, because one of the lies has a pronoun in it. “She’s just a friend.” Clearly, these are the lies guys are more prone to telling. After the jump, the universal lies that women tell. Keep reading »

Meow! Google Restricts Cougar Dating Sites From Its Searches

Google has gone cougar-hunting. The search engine has classified “cougar” dating sites like CougarLife.com as “non-family safe” and banned them from its content pages. Google ads appear on over 6,700 websites, including biggies like YouTube and MySpace.

Sad news for Samantha Jones indeed — but unfortunately Google has a glaring double standard if you compare CougarLife.com to other dating sites. For example, most ads for SeekingArrangements.com, which matches young “sugar babes” with older, successful sugar daddies, are still considered “family-safe” by Google. However, dates found on CougarLife.com don’t come with financial perks, but the goal of SeekingArrangements.com is to pair a “generous benefactor” with “college students” and “aspiring actresses.” It’s not prostitution … but it’s not not prostitution, if you get what I’m saying.
