3nder Is Like Tinder But For Threesomes, Yay?

Dating Don'ts: 9 Tinder Profiles That Made Me Swipe Left
These types of Tinder profiles make women want to swipe left. Read More »

I have the dating app Tinder downloaded on my phone, but I only use it to play a game called “How many times can I swipe left in 60 seconds?” My current record is 44, but that’s because I take it seriously and don’t swipe left on every dude who pops up on the screen. But I don’t ever respond to any of the messages that various “matches” send to me and I have no plans to randomly meet up with someone I met through the site. Call me crazy, but I prefer to judge a stranger on more substantial information than what Tinder provides, which is, at most, a couple factoids and a handful of photos. So I’m really, really not envisioning myself using 3nder, a new app from the makers of Tinder and Grindr (the “gay” precursor to Tinder, FYI), which hopes to make threesomes easier to come by. But that’s me. Maybe this is totally your bag, in which case, you should watch this video, which makes threesomes look super hip and sexy, and cross your fingers this app makes it out of the development stage. But as an aside, how do you even pronounce 3nder? Thrinder? Help me. [Styleite]

The 18 Stages Of Being Single In Winter

The 18 Stages Of Being Single In Winter

When wintertime rolls around, it’s easy to feel like the only single person in the world. Couples are stumbling adorably in winter coats and scarves, chuckling over hot coffee and warming each others hands while we single folks are left to pile ourselves under books, Netflix, and the covers. It’s tough going solo when the temperatures drop – bars are emptier, going outside in general is less appealing, and the singletons you seek are likely hiding away in a burrow of sweaters and Seamless.com delivery orders. (And when you finally score a first date, you need all those sweaters to hide all those Seamless orders.)

But at least by the time you make it through all 18 stages, you’ll know you’re not alone. Keep reading »

5 Dating Lessons From “That Awkward Moment”

What is the deal with guys and “the talk”? If you’re spending all of your free time together and the sex is good, why is the “so what are we” conversation such a freaking issue? To get to the heart of this epidemic and learn how to decipher something real versus someone who just wants to schtup, we decided to take cues from Zac Efron’s latest comedy ”That Awkward Moment.”

It’s the story of 20-somethings navigating the rocky terrain between hooking up and dating, as Efron manages to charm his way out of bachelorhood and into Imogen Poots’ panties. The good news is — spoiler alert! — all the bros eventually get over their irrational fear of settling down and open their hearts to totally cool chicks … but not without breaking a few hearts and some serious boning along the way. So here’s how to be the winner in this scenario, and not the one-night stand. Keep reading »

Bold Girl Lesson: Know When To Walk Away — And Know When To Run

bold-woman-with-drink

Half of the trouble I’ve experienced in relationships is simply not knowing when to “fold ‘em” and call it a day. Yeah, you’re probably out the $10 buy-in, but it’s a small loss in comparison to a broken heart. You lost that week, or month of time but you didn’t go all in on some guy just to find he’s bluffing. But it’s easier said than done, isn’t it? Read more on College Candy…

Hide Your Good Snacks & Other Rules For Hosting A Booty Call

BARFFFFFFFFFFFFFF, I hate new sex.

And I know it’s a thing (maybe a sitcom thing?) to bitch about having to do a fake porn moan under the same sweaty, hairy, disgusting meatsack of a pre-corpse you’ve been holding your farts in under for the last five or 10 or 15 years or whatever, but I don’t even care: I WANT THAT.

I’m over the rush of the new; bring on the last dick I’m ever gonna suck. Keep reading »

I’ve been dating this amazing guy for 10 months. Two months into our relationship, he told me he loved me and I realized I loved him back. Lately, things have started to change. He spends less time with me and stopped saying he loved me (the only exception is when he’s drunk).

When I finally asked him about it, he said that he likes me now (like, not love) but isn’t sure what the future holds. At this point, I cannot imagine doing anything but break up with him. However, he still wants to keep seeing me or take a break to sort his feelings out. When I prodded him further, he confessed that the driving factor in all this is his fear of commitment. Some days he says he wants to spend the rest of his life with me, other days he’s not so sure. He wants some time to sort out his feelings. The other item we discussed is that we don’t ever really talk about the deep stuff, that even though we’ve been dating for a while, we don’t actually know each other all that well. He thinks maybe if we continue seeing each other and getting to know each other better, his feelings may change.

I don’t know if I should cut my losses and end this relationship now. What’s the point of getting my hopes up again or wasting my time by continuing to see each other? What is wrong with him — if he doesn’t love me anymore, why can’t he just leave it be? – BC

9 Guys Share Their Biggest Sex Regrets

Sure, I’d imagine some guys wish they took advantage of their single days more, just as women do. But sex regrets have to go beyond not hooking up with the hot girl at the bar for some men. To discover guys’ I-really-wish-I-hadn’t sexcapades, we went right to the source. Turns out, they’ve had their fair share of unfavorable partners in the bedroom (and park), too.

Study: Casual Sex Might Be Making Teenagers Sad

Study: Casual Sex Might Be Making Teenagers Sad

A new study from Ohio State University in the Journal of Sex Research suggests that casual teenage sex has a reciprocal relationship with poor mental health – and that they contribute to one another over time.

An important thing to note is that this link was found to be the same for both men and women. “That was unexpected because there is still this sexual double standard in society that says it is OK for men to have casual sexual relationships, but it is not OK for women,” said assistant professor of human sciences Claire Kamp Dush, Ph.D. In this sense, it seems that both genders have the same relationship to casual sex — if only pop culture would catch on to that!

So I’ve been a friend of this good guy for over 10 years.  We’ve always had sexual tension, but I never really gave a thought to it nor did I think we were going to act on it. On a total random drunken night, we had sex.  So we decided to go on a date, and it really was no different from any other time we’ve hung out.  He said stupid things to me all night like “You’re my dream girl,” and to be honest, I loved it and had a great time.  I didn’t realized how much I actually like this guy, until one day – he just stopped calling. He’d make plans, and cancel last minute, which is unlike him. We’ve always been close, and I’ve known FOR YEARS that he is a commitment-phobe.  All the years that we’ve been friends, he’s never had a single date. Is this guy genuinely scared of me/relationships or did I just get played by the player-of-all-players? — Alisa

You did not get played. You got “manned.”

Let me tell you something about men. Their deepest, darkest fear is being trapped.  It’s constant. They fear it even when there are no traps in sight. Put a man in a wide-open emotional space, with nothing but happy meadows and tweeting birds for miles around, and he’ll still be terrified of some girl popping up yelling, “I’m pregnant and it’s yours!” Keep reading »
