13 Things You Want To Tell Your Ex, But Never Will (Or Should)

Unless you’re one of the those people who actually enjoys staying friends with an ex, there’s probably a lot of things you’d really love to tell that person once the relationship is over. Whether you did the heart breaking or you’re the one who ended up having the broken heart, sometimes you just have a lot of things you’d really love to get off your chest. How could you not? Even the most amicable endings still have their share of drama and resentment. Keep reading »

5 Love Lessons Season 1 Of “Girls” Taught Us

After months of waiting, it’s finally almost time for new season of “Girls.” Tonight, season 2 premieres, and while we haven’t seen it yet, we can practically guarantee more awkwardness, laugh-out-loud dialogue, and of course, those unbelievably relatable relationship moments.

Until the premiere, hold yourself over with these love lessons we learned from the Brooklyn quartet.

1. Tell Him How You Feel

In Hannah’s best moment of honesty, we see her tell her then-hookup Adam, who sent her a racy picture meant for someone else, how she really feels. No, she doesn’t want him to take her to brunch or be her boyfriend, she just wants him to be obsessed with her and want to sleep with only her. (Sound familiar?) As much as we giggled during this epic monologue, this was a huge moment for Hannah and the audience. It’s the first time she’s telling Adam what she wants. It’s refreshing and empowering. Finally, she’s not just going along with a strange or uncomfortable sex request. Read more…

I knew “Downton Abbey” was more than a period soap opera the moment we discovered Thomas was having an affair with the Duke of Crowborough. Scandalous! Of course, it all fell apart when Thomas tried to blackmail the Duke with their love letters. Bad move, Thomas. “Downton Abbey” may take place in the early 1900′s, but the Lords, Ladies and their staff have a lot to teach us about amorous matters. Indeed they do. In honor of tonight’s season three premiere of “Downton Abbey,” here are nine sex lessons we’ve learned from both those upstairs and those downstairs… Keep reading »

7 Signs He’s Not Planning On Proposing

6 Terrible Reasons To Stay In A Relationship

Here are seven signs your boyfriend will not be popping the question anytime soon:

1. No introductions. He has not introduced you to hisfamily members and you have been dating for over a year.

2. No planning. He does not include you in his future plans (such as work, where he is moving, his travel).

3. Silence. He doesn’t talk about marriage or having a family at all. Read more…

3 Love Lessons From “Les Miserables”

I could gush all day about the 2012 film adaptation of “Les Misérables.” It’s everything a movie musical should be. The film itself is like a love letter from the director (Tom Hooper) to the musical’s original creators that says: Your work is perfection on stage. Let’s do it justice on film. And he succeeded.

But alas, this isn’t a review, so I’ll refrain from gushing and introduce instead three of the film’s most poignant love lessons:

1. Check yourself. The next time you get all self-pitying about your love life (Why hasn’t he texted me yet?!), consider a small dose of “Les Mis.” Once you hear Fantine’s (played by Anne Hathway) gutwrenching tale of lost love in the show-stopping ballad “I Dreamed A Dream,” your petty problems will fall instantly into perspective … that is, unless you also lost your job as an 1823 French factory worker when you were outed for having an illegitimate child and were subsequently relegated to a life of prostitution that consumed your soul and ultimately ended your life. No? Okay then. Read more…

Relationship In A Rut? There’s An App For That!

It’s no secret that after the initial “honeymoon” phase of a relationship, couples can get, well, lazy.

That laziness comes in many forms—lack of sexual intimacy, letting yourself go, absence of the small gestures of affection that were once so frequent and intoxicating—you get the picture. The holidays (and the return of New Year’s Resolutions) are typically a time of vowing to combat that complacency and ignite the spark that once burned so bright; but, as the story goes, resolutions are often broken well before the end of week one.

So, how can couples combat their relationship ruts this year? Well, there’s an app for that. Read more…

Meeting The Family Dos & Don’ts From Movies

The holidays mean lots of family time, and if you have a significant other, you could be meeting his family for the first time over the Christmas dinner. Whether you’re in a serious relationship or dating someone new, meeting the family — and especially the parents — can be nerve-racking. While there’s no predicting how the meeting will go, thanks to all the movie examples of worse-case scenarios and crazy families, we can at least relax knowing it could be worse. And we can learn what to do and what not to do from these memorable meet-the-family scenes. Check out the tips for meeting the fam now! Read more…

7 Psychotic Pieces Of Relationship Advice From Cosmo

We get it. Guys are tough to figure out: There’s like 24 possible combinations that you can make with 1) beer 2) food 3) sex and 4) sports. No wonder their girlfriends have to resort to lady magazines to gain insight into the buzzing hive that is the male mind. We know most women laugh that stuff off as cheap entertainment not to be taken seriously, but what if they actually did listen to all of the advice?

It’d pretty much turn into a nightmare of paranoia and petty revenge. After all, according to various Cosmo articles…

#7: He Shares the Details of His Day, Therefore He Must Be Hiding Something

Men just aren’t as communicative as women, especially when they’re stressed. So, let’s say a guy makes a conscious decision to share more. That’s solid advice, no matter the source. When she asks him about his day, instead of just saying, “fine,” he can tell her in detail about his argument with Sarah, the lady from HR. Read more…
