How long does it take to make a first impression? 15 seconds? 7 seconds? 3 seconds? I’ve been doing some dating lately (FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SOMEONE HELP ME), and I’ve come to the conclusion that I can tell how a date is going to go within the first three seconds. My shrink thinks this is poppycock, some fantasy of omnipotence, but what does he know?

For women, divorce is financially dangerous, and you’re necessarily subject to a 50 percent chance of suffering from it if you marry. After the jump, I’ll debunk popular excuses for avoiding a prenup. Keep reading »
Nicki Minaj appeared on “Live with Regis and Kelly” on Monday, and things got kind of out of hand. First, Regis put his arm around the hip-hop star’s waist, squeezing just a little too hard. At which point, after complimenting her style and her dress, he slapped her lightly on the behind. Kelly seemed taken aback, but then proceeded to talk to Nicki about her waist size. Just what every girl wants to talk about! And then came the ultimate cringe-inducing moment. Regis asked Nicki what advice she got from Lil Wayne. “Go hard,” said Nicki. Regis’ response: “Go hard?
