How To Politely React To Your Friend’s Terrible Engagement

How To Politely React To Your Friend's Terrible Engagement
BLAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

For the most part, I’m super excited when one of my friends gets engaged. Good for them, finding the person of their dreams and shit. But what if your friend gets engaged to someone terrible? How are you supposed to respond to that? Because telling her how you really feel — “Do you really want to make the biggest mistake of your life?!” — is out of the question, and staring at her outstretched, blinged-out hand in horror would be, you know, rude, comedienne Sasheer Zamata has some suggestions for how to respond, without lying, when your pal tells you she’s marrying some douchebag. Step 7, “Gestures and Sounds,” will probably be my go-to. [The Hairpin]

9 Crappy Messages About Love & Friendship We Learned From Watching Rom-Coms

I watched the movie “Something Borrowed” in its entirety on Sunday afternoon. I was cleaning, and dealing with a cold, and, sue me, I will probably watch anything with Ginnifer Goodwin in it if given the opportunity.

Have you seen it? Good, don’t. I’ll tell you about it instead. “Something Borrowed” stars Goodwin and Kate Hudson as Rachel and Darcy, two diametrically opposed best friends both in love with Dex (played by Colin Egglesfield and his eyebrows). Dex is Darcy’s fiancé, but he’s Rachel’s true love, and therein lies the problem. Dex and Rachel are supposed to be together and they embark on a weird physical and emotional affair and lie their faces off to Darcy about it.  Keep reading »

The Best Duos For Overcoming Life’s Most Difficult Situations

Imagine a world with peanut butter but no jelly. Fred with no Barney. A world without duos would be a lonely one, because nobody likes to go through life’s most challenging, harrowing and intimidating obstacles all by themselves. That’s why pop culture is brimming with dynamic duos — both real and imagined. Whether it be in the thunderous confines of an arena, the skies of a make-believe world, or in the break room of an office in Scranton, Pennsylvania, we’ve long been captivated by two people who find common ground and work together to achieve wonders.

In the new movie “2 Guns,” Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington play battling spies who must set aside their differences, become a team and kick some major ass if they have any hopes of staying alive. Her are 10 more duos who have teamed up to overcome life’s most difficult situations. Read more at Ask Men…

how to be friends with your ex

How do you become friends with your ex after a shitty breakup? The short answer: Time heals all wounds. The long answer? Well, that’s a little more complicated. And it’s especially complicated if your ex has done something incredibly douche-y or terrible to you. Case in point: My Crappiest Break Up Ever (™), in which my live-in boyfriend broke up with me over IM while we were both at work. Even while it was happening, I knew that some day, in the very distant future, I’d find that incredibly funny. Like now. When I can laugh with him over Gchat about it.

I never thought I’d get to that point with Alex, or that I’d ever want to. But lo’, three years later, and we’re totally buds. How did this happen? Keep reading »
