8 Ways To Meet Guys Offline

Are you sick of me talking about how I’m back on the market yet? Good. OK, for those of you who didn’t get the memo, I am attempting to start dating again after a long sabbatical. My thing is — and I know this is not the case for everyone — I hate online dating. It’s not my scene. I have lots of friends who kick ass at it and I know that there are great people online, I just tend to do better in person. I have a pact with myself that if all my IRL options dry up, I will happily resort to online dating. Luckily, I have a good track record of meeting dudes in person. Since I’m over the bar thing and friend set-ups come and go, I’ve had to get a little more creative. After the jump, here’s where I find the majority of my offline dates. Feel free to add your secret IRL dude snagging tips in the comments and I will feel free to try them. Keep reading »

Ricky Gervais Impersonates David Bowie

Well lookey what we have here. A young Ricky Gervais who clearly fancies himself a David Bowie disciple. Ricky was the front man of British new wave band, Seona Dancing. Even though this song hit number 70 on the UK charts, I’m glad he decided to explore his comedic side instead of staying focused on his bitter heart. I prefer Ricky’s music video for “If You Don’t Know Me by Now” made as David Brent from “The Office.” The white linen outfit kills me every time. Check it out after the jump.

We Are Better At Communicating With Strangers Than Loved Ones

We know that couples, family members, and best friends love to brag about how they share a brain, which results in all that annoying finishing each other’s sentences stuff. Just because they claim to know what the other is thinking, that may not mean they actually understand each other any better than two strangers. A new study says that when two people are very close, communication suffers. Why? Because we assume we get them, whereas with strangers we don’t. Basically our brains get used to another’s language patterns and we become lazy at interpreting what they actually mean, which leads to long-term disagreements. You can see why the divorce rate is so high and family dinners can be so uncomfortable. Humans are delusional idiots. We could probably fix this problem by treating our loved ones like strangers. Wait, that sounds weird. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

9 Celebs Who Won’t Get Married Until Gay Marriage Is Legal

Jason Mraz may have asked his girlfriend Tristan Prettyman to marry him, but they won’t be setting a date anytime soon. Why? Because Jason feels strongly about waiting until gay couples are able to tie the knot before doing it himself. “We both feel that in our engagement, we have a union that’s really special and cant be broken. It’s a sacred bond,” he said. “The wedding would be nice for our family, our friends, our community — our moms especially — and so it puts us in the fight. We can’t get married until [gay] marriage is legal and equal. … I think giving people the right to marry will be a huge movement in civil rights.” [Huffington Post]

Making statements like this has become de rigueur among celebrities. After the jump, more stars who won’t say “I do” until Congress, or at least state legislatures, say that gay couples can marry too.
