Dating Don’ts: How To Know When It’s Time To Dump Him

Remember back when the mere mention of his name would give you a white-hot jolt to the heart? The sound of his voice was like an exquisite punch to the gut? His hand brushed against yours, and you’d get a warm swelling in the heart region? Yeah, well these days all you feel is sick to your stomach.

Though it seems most of us spend an inordinate time trying to get one, the truth is, once you land that boyfriend you’ve always wanted, you discover the truth— relationships can be a giant pain in the rear.

Dating Don’ts: How Not To Cheat (Or Seem Like You Are)

Did you see those photos of actress Sienna Miller smooching married (and maybe separated?) father-of-four, Balthazar Getty? All the tabloids are whispering about impropriety between Madonna and Yankee Alex Rodriguez, while even darling Ferris Bueller’s Day Off star Matthew Broderick has been accused of stepping out on wife Sarah Jessica Parker.

You can hardly turn on the TV or surf the web these days without being assaulted by photos of some celebrity canoodling with some other famous person who’s married to still another person altogether. Sure, sexing up the same person day in and day out can get a bit dull after a few years, but if you’re going to step out, at least have a little consideration for your main squeeze and don’t get caught. After the jump are a few scenarios to avoid… Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: How To Avoid Being Labeled “A Crazy”

Lord knows that there are a lot of wacky people running out there, and for some annoying reason women get slammed (unfairly, if you ask me) with the crazy card more often than men. However, sometimes (not often, but sometimes) maybe the name-callers have a point. Some of us can be kind of kooky. I’m not talking about whimsically cute eccentricities; I’m speaking of full-on lunatic behavior.

Maybe you’ve been labeled a little odd or a tad touched. No shame in that—hey, let she without issues cast the first stone—but most likely you don’t want your sanity shortcomings to be the first impression you make upon a new date. For this reason, you should, at all costs, avoid going down the following roads for at least the first three dates:

  • “My therapist says. . .”
  • Unless he’s your full-on boyfriend, beginning any sentence with those three words will cause a man to make a mad dash for the hills. Yes, even if he’s in therapy himself. At worst, he’ll think you’re crazy; at best, he’ll think you’re the type of gal who’s going to require a lot of “talks.” Neither impression bodes well for your future relationship. Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: How Not To Get A Second Date

The unholy trinity of Photoshop, spell check and the Internet mean that even the most illiterate, personality-deficient, hideous troll can land a first date, much to a lady’s disappointment. Landing a second date is the tricky bit, so when you realize you’d like to never see this guy again, there are some tried and true strategies to assure that he decides the first date is also the last.

Dating Don’ts: How NOT To Be Photographed For Your Online Personal Ad

As any savvy online dater knows, you can spend hours crafting the perfect combination of wit, sophistication, and charm, but all your pretty words won’t mean squat if your photo reeks.

That’s not to say that you need to be a ringer for Angelina or J. Lo to get noticed (though, obviously that wouldn’t be a hindrance), but you do need to have a photo that shows you in the best possible light without it being a completely misleading deception. Keep reading »

Is Three Still A Crowd In Modern Marriages?

We recently came across some puzzling paparazzi photos of a newly married Elizabeth Hurley with her husband Arun Nayer on holiday — the puzzling part wasn’t that the couple was on vacay together, but rather that her ex-boyfriend, British cad Hugh Grant, came along for the ride. How…romantic? The trend has made its way to television as well — one of our favorite breakout hits from the last TV season, Showtime’s Californication, stars David Duchovny as a foul-mouthed writer who constantly stops by uninvited at his ex (and baby momma) and her new fiancé’s home. [Spoiler: In the end she runs off with him after her wedding -- a plot point that probably could have been stopped if her fiancé had put the kibosh on all the overly friendly ex-relations (though that would have made for a less exciting season finale).] So what’s the deal Frisky women? Do you — or your partners — have exes who still come ’round for tea and stay for supper, too? Share your stories in the comments — maybe The Frisky is just a little bit behind the times when it comes to modern matrimony. [Daily Mail, Dotspotter] Keep reading »

England’s Top Dealbreakers: Dancing Like McLovin’

Sometimes I wonder whether having “dealbreakers” just ruins your chances of finding someone because you’re limiting who you’ll even consider. Catherine Townsend, a sex writer in England, has a list of the top 10 dating don’ts — though she goes on to say that you shouldn’t date anyone who drives a Porsche or can’t dance. If none of us dated non-dancers, wouldn’t we all be sitting at home watching Ugly Betty every night? Keep reading »
