What We Missed: Sexy Language Barriers, Going Bare-Faced & Bieber’s Dead Hamster Trends On Twitter

"We Got Down To Basics, Tout Suite!"
Last Week's Episode
Talkin' Mercury, manicures and Miley! Watch »

I’m baaaaaack! Did you miss me? In this week’s episode of What We Missed, I break out my Google Translation app in order to discuss the perks of having a major language barrier when romancing someone. For example, you’re forced to really listen to each other. Also, we reflect on the death of Justin Bieber’s hamster, mostly to mourn the downfall of society that such a thing is even a Twitter trending topic and to rail against people (celebs and commoners alike) who adopt/buy animals when they’re not fully prepared to care for them. (Also, I reveal my own crazy super fan past!) And lastly, we chat about recent stats about when women finally go makeup-free in front of new boyfriends. Personally, I go barefaced pretty early, but totally sneak out of bed in the morning to brush my teeth before he wakes up. I put off exposing him to my morning breath for as long as possible! Watch the episode above and share your thoughts on all these stories in the comments!

Vacays For Women
Have you taken all these awesome trips yet? Read More »

Traveling to another country is always exciting. This is especially true if you go alone. You’re out there yucking it up solo, living your life and maybe even doing things that you wouldn’t do back home. You are you, but the vacation version of you. And what does the vacation version of you do? Takes a shit ton of chances! Not crazy chances, but rockin’ the boat type of stuff that will make for great stories when you get home.

So if you’re single, out in the world and maybe even in a country where there is a barrier thanks to language, how do you meet someone? Whether you’re looking for a one-night-stand, a fling or maybe something long lasting, you have to be able to get over all that “lost in translation” stuff. It can happen, because as they say, “love is the international language.” Or, to be more honest, straight-up banging actually is. Keep reading »

How Can Employers Stop Us From Hooking Up?

Forty percent of employees have dated a co-worker at some point in their career, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though office dating bans have gone out of vogue, employers and their general counsels described to the Journal‘s Jennifer Smith how they manage the romances that can make workplaces uncomfortable and topple careers, including, recently, Best Buy executive Brian Dunn. The Cut has reinterpreted their collective wisdom into a five-point guide for cock-blocking everyone you work with.

Gossip. Salt Lake City trucking company C.R. England, Inc. told the Journalit tolerates dating but relies on “tips from other employees” to find when an in-office relationship has become “a distraction.” A most aggressive HR department could reverse-gossip, tipping the tipsters off to employee factoids that might make the relationship less attractive. Did you hear Brian claimed seven dependents on his W-4? And he’s never been married. Read more…

8 Tricks For Scoring A Date With Your Airplane Seatmate

You’re stuck in an 18-inch wide seat, traveling at 500 MPH in an aluminum tube. A woman (or dude with frosted hair) is trying hard not to roll her eyes as an unaccompanied minor keeps pinging the call button. The pilot wonders how he’s going to continue keeping his west coast family from finding out about his east coast family. And a good-looker is thumbing through a dog-eared copy of The Bonfire Of The Vanities less than a yard away from you. You’re single, what do you do?

The humdrum tedium of air travel can be easily filled with a new friend and some snappy patter. I’ve had pretty good luck dating ladies I sat next to on flights and so can you. If you’re into men, these tips should still work.

1. Wait until the flight is at least half over. An early pounce makes for an awkward next few hours. Read more…
