Let Him Look If You Don’t Want Him To Stray

A new study says that it could be your fault if he’s considering cheating on you. No, not because you’re not putting out enough or you nag too much. It’s because you scold him when he ogles other women. The study found that men who were interrupted while admiring attractive women reported to be more likely to cheat on their S.O. if given the chance. Why? It’s the “forbidden fruit” principle. He wants it more, because you tell him he can’t have it. I feel the same way about chocolate. I am very likely to cheat on my diet if I am scolded for my ogling of sweets. I have no self control. I am victim to my animal impulses and therefore not responsible for my actions. Thanks for understanding. [Men’s Health] Keep reading »

5 Animals That Might Have Better Hair Than You

I knew a girl in high school who would come to class with the most ornate hairstyles — curly ringlets, perfectly formed pigtails, or french braids twisting into a chignon — and whenever anyone complimented her on it she would laugh and say, “What do you mean? I just woke up like this!” I wonder what she would think of members of the animal kingdom who really do just wake up with amazing hairstyles? Read on for five animals with serious enviable locks–no curling iron or blow dryer necessary.

LeAnn Rimes Was Never Taught Not To Cheat

“I didn’t have the tools to know how to do it the right way, how to let go the right way. I’d never been taught that … I have the strength [now] but I didn’t at the time… So, it got really messy, but I have learned a lot from that. And I’m not glad it happened, but I know why it did.”

LeAnn Rimes on why she cheated on husband Dean Sheremet with Eddie Cibrian. This statement annoys me. None of us were taught the right way to let go. There is no course in school that gives you the tools. You grow a pair of balls and own up to the truth because you have to, because it’s the right thing to do, not because you’re taught to. That is all. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

22 Things I Wish I Knew About Dating When I Was 22

For the last few years, I’ve been a mentor to a former student of mine from my days as a junior high school teacher. Now that she is out of college, we have become friends, or more like older sister/ younger sister, or somewhere between parent and peer. I met her when she was 15. Now she’s 22. The other evening she was telling me about this guy she’s been dating on and off. In short, I do not approve of him. Listening to her talk, I remembered how when I was her age, I was in a very similar dating situation. I wanted to shake her and say, “Dump his ass now!” But that wouldn’t be right. If someone had said that to me, I would have laughed at them and then told them to f**k off. I wanted to spare her all of the pain, all of the mistakes I made myself. But I suppose I can’t. Sigh. Such is life. People learn in their own time. Instead, I offer my unsolicited advice about what I wish I knew about dating when I was 22 and hope that she reads it and figures it out for herself. Add your dating wisdom nuggets in the comments. Keep reading »
