When it came to my dating life, I wasn’t sure I should listen to Patti Stanger, host of Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and author of the book Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate. Could someone hoisting a gold, ruby-encrusted Cupid’s arrow on her book cover, whose ample bosom was jammed into a white Liberace pantsuit, help me, an outdoorsy New Yorker with an A cup seeking a sweet, humble, non-cologne wearing guy with no roommates?
I was doubtful. But as an early thirties lady swinging and missing on the New York dating scene, I figured, “What have you got to lose, Singles McGonigle?” See if she’s got some news you can use. Keep reading »
So many characteristics supposedly hint at your personality — from your hair color to your height. Now, a new study from psychologist Glenn Wilson (and sponsored by a chain of bars) says the way you hold your glass tells what kind of person you are. Keep reading »
I was poking around on YouTube yesterday, looking for something fun and Friday-ish to post today, and I came across this ancient clip of futuristic fashion predictions from designers of the 1930s. I actually sort of like the first look they highlight — a dress that “can be adapted for morning, afternoon or evening.” Apparently, it’s the “sleeves what does it!” you see. And I love how one designer imagines women in “AD 2000″ wearing dresses made of netting “to catch the males.” Hand’s down, the best prediction is the electric headlight women will wear in their hair to help them “find an honest man.” Interestingly, the designers were spot-on in their prediction that guys of the future would wear phones, though I’m sure they could never have predicted the fashion faux pas of the clip-on cell. And too bad our modern men don’t all carry “candy for cuties,” as the designers imagined. Keep reading »
If your bedroom buddy has been sporting the same skivvies over and over, it may be a sign that the recession is still in full throttle. According to economist Alan Greenspan, the former Federal Reserve chief, underwear sales are a great indicator of the economy’s status. Over the course of 2008, male underwear sales declined by 12%; as we all know, GDP took a sharp drop as well. So just in case you didn’t already have enough on your mind during the brutal economic meltdown, you now have to worry about (and be wary of) your dude’s holey undies, too. Here’s hoping the economy—and our boyfriends’ boxer collection—are on the rise. Keep reading »
Parents! Lock your teenagers in their rooms! Especially the girls! “Good Morning America” has discovered that blow jobs are the new goodnight kiss! All across the country, teenagers are giving head and having sex parties! It’s not just the Catholic high schoolers (who are having anal sex in order to maintain their chastity) we need to pray for; it’s every single pubescent teen who’s figured out that you can have sex using just your mouth!
Sigh. Yet another morning show segment designed to scare the crap out of parents by declaring a “new” trend that’s taking our nation’s youth on a downward spiral toward hell. Teens having oral sex: is it really so new? I was a late bloomer so I didn’t give my first beej until I was 19 (in a stairwell at a bar!), but what about other 20- and 30-something women? Their teenage oral sexploits, after the jump … Keep reading »

Imagine a woman: She has a college degree and a job, she pays for her own house and car, and she’s not intimidated by any man for any reason. She’s smart, independent and strong.
Isn’t it a puzzle, then, that she has sexual fantasies of being dominated?
Actually, researchers say, it makes perfect sense. Keep reading »
“American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi appeared on “The View” today, and she was asked about runner-up Adam Lambert’s sexuality. Now, throughout the whole season of “American Idol,” people debated whether or not Adam was gay — his trademark look is gobs of glittery eye makeup, after all. However, the contestant never discussed his sexual preferences publicly. On “The View,” Kara said, “I don’t think Adam was ever in [the closet]. I think he was always openly out.” Keep reading »
Last night, I found myself packing up my ex-boyfriend’s stuff in preparation for his move. He didn’t have anyone else willing to help, including friends and family, so he was doing it alone. My main reason for helping, obviously, was because after three months of separation, I missed him. We’ve talked occasionally, so it wasn’t like he had called me out of the blue and said, “Help me pack my s**t!”
Even though we hadn’t seen each other in a while, it still felt like we were friends when I saw him. Not being his girl anymore made it easier to deal with the bra (that wasn’t mine) I found in his drawer. To be fair, he warned me, saying that I might find some things I didn’t want to see. (I believe it was from a previous girlfriend long ago because it was all stretched out and I know he has better taste now.) During the packing process, I started to wonder whether I’m a pushover. He’s not my boyfriend anymore — was helping him with his move too nice a thing for an ex to do, or was I just being a good friend?
After the jump, instances when it’s okay to be good to an ex and when you’re being too nice to the jerk who broke your heart. Keep reading »
Oh, prom…I wore a poufy dress, Princess Leia buns, and goth makeup, all chosen specifically as an act of rebellion against the popular, blond, perfect prom queen, Carla Smith. Well, those days may be over. Sergio Garcia, an 18-year-old senior at Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, may be a guy, but he’s still a queen at heart. Prom queen, that is! Keep reading »
