365 Days In Paris: Present Tense

Third date with Mr. Cupid. We were sitting in a bar in Belleville, where I had dragged him to my friend’s spoken word song night. (Yeah. I know. Long story.) But it was there, scrunched in between boho expatriates and enduring the sounds of bad slam poetry, that we kissed.

Openmouthed, and bench the tongue. Urgent but not desperate,” and pushing the hair, not pulling it. It’s a great list, for sure, but come on, only 11 suggestions? We women are far easier to please than that! After the jump, five more things women want from men. Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: Know Your Textiquette

Texting has become as ubiquitous as the cell phones that birthed them, but what is it doing to our love lives? Can you imagine what a different movie “Casablanca” would be if, instead of suavely growling, “Here’s looking at you, kid,” Rick instead texted Ilsa:
