What do women really want? Well, according to a new survey published in the Journal of Behavioral Addictions, their cell phones. Young women spend an average of 10 hours a day on their cell phones. 10 hours?! What on earth are you doing? Well, for exactly 94.6 minutes a day, you’re texting. Then, you’re emailing (48.5 minutes), Facebook-ing (38.6 minutes), browsing the web (34.4 minutes) and rocking out to music (26.9 minutes).
And, last year, it was discovered that half of women would rather give up sex for a month than lose their phones for that long. It sounds outrageous, but let’s be honest — we all know more than a few people who are positively glued to their phones (you might even be one of them!).

It’s been six days since Scar Twin broke up with me.
Everything had been going well until one day last week, it all just … changed. In the beginning of the week, Scar Twin had warned me about his crazy work schedule and how he was going to be busy most nights preparing for the long weekend, so when his texts became scarce and his “just because” phone calls suddenly stopped, I tried to convince myself he was just stressed and busy. But after a couple days of short, lifeless text messages and no mention of getting together over Labor Day weekend, I started to worry that things had taken a bad turn. Keep reading »
First dates inspire a low-level nausea and roiling dread for a variety of reasons. It could be horrible or it could be amazing. Meeting a stranger at a bar contains a world of untold possibility. Maybe they’ll be your soulmate, someone that makes your heartstrings zing and your loins quiver. Maybe they’ll be the worst person you’ve ever met in your life, and you’ll be better for knowing that someone out there that horrible exists, and just how to avoid them. Or, maybe it’ll be a perfectly average night, nothing to write home about, but just a two hour chunk of your life in which you sat across the table from a perfectly normal dude with a beard in a nice button-down, who you didn’t really have chemistry with. Whatever. You play the field for as long as you can until something that clicks comes along. Keep reading »

For all these months, he’s reportedly been the target of Kristen’s affections, even though he’s tried his best to move on and show that he’s over her. In fact, by Rob’s own admission, they’re still friends and keep in touch, which probably made the whole situation more difficult for Kristen. Read more on Celeb Dirty Laundry…
Welcome to our new weekly column Dater XY! Our anonymous MALE dater will be revealing the adventures and misadventures of finding love from a dude’s point of view. Let’s give him a big welcome!
With a high of four degrees and over a foot of snow, the weather was not fit for man nor beast. But I had a date, so off I went into the icy cold. I’d met The Teacher through an online dating site, like so many of us do these days. I had sent her a message to see if she wanted to share a drink, she accepted, and we met at one of my favorite restaurants.
Over dinner, we chatted about the usual first date things: where we were from, how long we’ve been in the city, music we like, if we enjoyed our meals, etc. The more we talked, the more our chemistry grew. Of course, the chemistry could have been the Malbec. But judging by the smiles on our faces, The Teacher and I had something more. After a few hours of flirtatious and witty banter, we paid our check and I walked her to a cab. Our next date was set in two weeks and I was a happy guy. Keep reading »
