He’s phenomenal … he’s really romantic. He’s not even in town and I got in my car and there are flowers everywhere! And for my birthday, same thing … like, flowers everywhere. I was almost embarrassed. You walk in and you’re like, ‘Is this my room? I don’t even know.’ I’m kind of embarrassed.”
—Julianne Hough gushing about BF Ryan Seacrest on “Ellen.” Nothing to be embarrassed about, Julianne—sounds like you just landed an awesome dude. Although, I might be slightly embarrassed too if Ryan were my boyfriend. But I suppose the flowers may help me get over it. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
“Your allure is at an all-time high,” my horoscope told me Thursday morning. “Be bold. No one will be able to resist you this week and daring actions will be rewarded.”
The words echoed through my head all the day. As I dug through my closet to pick what to wear, I felt compelled to select a va-va-voom pencil skirt and ’50s-style top. At work, I finally eked up the courage to have a meeting with my boss that I’d been wanting to have for weeks. And later that night, as I walked into my apartment building, I didn’t feel quite ready to call it a night. I took out my phone and dialed Tall Guy, someone I dated over the summer.

What’s healthier: Still bringing up your ex five-hundred moons after you broke up with him, or, say, doing a search for his name on Flickr and gaining access to his latest photo uploads in the privacy of your own apartment and/or cube?
Am I less insane for airing the fact that I can’t get over a girl I haven’t seen in the flesh since “Frasier” was on, or am I more mentally robust if I stay mum on her hold over me while examining the Facebook page of everyone we ever mutually knew to see if she’s posted anything on their walls or was in any of their photo albums?
These are all trick questions. The real sign of sanity is … Read more. Keep reading »
I’ll admit, when I’m scrolling through my potential online dating matches, I’m sometimes thinking, I can do better. I can do better. I can do better. And also, though far more rare, Eek, he can do better. And, I imagine, when I message someone who I think might be a good match for me — someone I think would be worthy of going on a date with — and they don’t reply, I acknowledge that he’s probably thought to himself, Eh, I can do better. And that’s fine, because I would like to meet someone who agrees that we might be good for each other. But what if you’re the type of person who can’t make that kind of decision for yourself, especially in the looks department? Who stares in the mirror and is unable to answer the question, How hot a guy can I actually get? Let CanDoBetter, a “social networking site that fuses together traditional dating and a ‘New Age’ experience,” help! Keep reading »

The best way to establish and maintain instant dating rapport is to talk about the other person, not you. Successful dating starts with successful conversations! Successful conversations are sustained by placing full attention on the person in front of you.
Even if your accomplishments include running up Mt. Everest without crampons or landing a deal with Donald Trump, defer this information. I don’t care if Lady Gaga just asked you to sing back-up for her, keep it under wraps! You will have plenty of time to talk about yourself as the conversation progresses. Keep reading »
