Man To Marry His Favorite Pillow

Last week, we learned about a woman who plans to wed a fairground ride. This week comes word of a man who has announced he plans to marry his pillow. Okeke Ikechukwu, a 26-year-old Nigerian man, told the Daily Metro that a bad stutter makes it difficult for him to speak to girls, so he’s decided to tie the knot with his favorite pillow instead.

Crazy Emails From A Girlfriend Gone Mad

I think most of us at some point in our lives have sent an email or text in the heat of an angry moment that we later regretted. In the summer of 2007, a girl named Em didn’t have an angry moment, she had an angry two weeks, during which time she sent a slew of bitter emails to the boyfriend that she thought was avoiding her. By the time she learned he wasn’t really ignoring her, but was actually traveling through Europe — something he’d mentioned many times to her before he left — it was too late. The emails had been sent, the damage had been done, and now this little video of her big mistake has been put together so we can all feel so much better about any communication snafus we’ve made in the past. The transcript is here for the impatient among us. The only thing that would make this funnier is if the two got married, and then divorced, and the guy sent this email to her.

Are You Stuck On Your First Love?

When I think of my first love — a guy I was hot for all through college and finally hooked up with in my last semester of school — I feel mostly relief our affair was relatively brief (about 10 months). There were some sweet moments in our relationship (dancing to Nina Simone in my living room, brewing our first batch of plum beer together, camping under the stars), but certainly not enough to sustain a life together, like he wanted. Thankfully, I was smart enough at 22 to suggest taking things slowly when he thought we should run off to a mountaintop in Colorado and get married “right away.” In the 10 years since we broke up, I’ve dated lots, have had several serious boyfriends, and got married to a wonderful man. That old boyfriend has had little, if any, impact on my love life since I last spoke to him a decade ago. Apparently, however, moving on past my first love makes me a bit of a rarity. Keep reading »

Too Hairy For Love?

I’m not gonna lie. Years ago, I went out with a guy whose hairy back and shoulders grossed me out so much, I had a hard time envisioning much of a future with him. He was an unemployed, pill-popping chain-smoker — oh, and he was short, too — but it was his excessive body hair that really made me doubt the longevity of our affair. Ironically, after a few dates, it was he who ended things with me, which really made my self-esteem plummet. Getting dumped by a hottie every woman lusts after is one thing, but having your calls go repeatedly unanswered by a short, little hairy man with bad breath is something else altogether. It was weeks before I had the confidence to even return any online dating winks. Keep reading »

Kathy Griffin And Levi Johnston Are Together … Say Wha’?!

Kathy Griffin, 48, found a new partner in crime prime time, Levi Johnston, 19. Bristol Palin’s baby-daddy, who has been doing the talk-show circuit, escorted the D-lister to the Teen Choice Awards last night. Despite the terrified baby-animal-caught-in-a-cougar-trap look on his face, Levi talked some serious game. “She’s beautiful and funny. She’s the star of the night.” He even kissed her on the cheek! We shudder. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

“Asian Trophy Wives”: A Label We Could Do Without

See that older white man over there with the younger Asian woman on his arm? That might not be love—that might be an Asian lady fetish. Author Ying Chu suspects as much, a subject she explores via an uncomfortable trend piece in Marie Claire about rich men like Rupert Murdoch and Woody Allen and the ladies she suspects are their “Asian trophy wives.”

“…[A]fter two or three failed attempts at domestic bliss with women of like background and age, these heavy hitters sought out something different. Something they had likely fetishized.”

10 Things Women Don’t Understand About Men

There may be a few things men don’t understand about women, but seriously, despite being the “simpler” sex, there are still lots of things we don’t get about them (scratchy sheets, anyone?). After the jump, 10 things about men that confound and boggle. Keep reading »

MERRIme.com: Episode 5

In episode five of “MERRIme.com,” Merri’s online dating adventures are starting to become a full-time job, as she goes on multiple dates in one day. In fact, she’s starting to mix up her various gentleman admirers, but I guess that’s what happens when you accept every date you’re asked out on. Also, Merri is busted still wearing her engagement ring. Girl, NO. When the ex and I broke up, I took mine off immediately, though I have to admit, I did pull it out from time to time. My advice — put that bad boy in a safety deposit box and don’t pull it out until you’re ready to sell. Oh, and things are looking up for Merri … here comes Patrick. [MERRIme.com] Keep reading »
