Camel has made a comeback in a big way this fall. Not only does this color represent American fashion at its chicest, but it also goes with so many cold-weather colors, like burgundy, navy blue, forest green, and blood red. Keep clicking to see how you can incorporate camel into your wardrobe.
I am an Aries and I was seeing a Libra. When he got accepted to college abroad, he moved. Before he went, he had said he loved me and could never forget me. We tried a long-distance relationship for a while, but it didn’t work out, especially for me. I don’t know who was the one with the worse communication skills, but yeah, it was rocky… Sometimes we wouldn’t talk to each other for months. I decided to call it off and he agreed because he said he’d do anything to make me happy. However, we kept in touch through mails and IM only, no phone calls.
Apparently, I am still stuck on that relationship because I never put my 100 percent in any other guy I have been with after him. I have been on lots of first dates, but can count the second dates on one hand. He still mails me once in a while and I have this nagging feeling that he might be getting over me because he has started to see this girl for sometime now. However, I am sure if I say anything about being back together, he might consider. Should I ? Do you think it would be worth all that trouble and heartache for all three people involved? I am miserable thinking about that one guy who had pleaded his “undying love and commitment” … the one I let go. – Empty
After getting dumped by my boyfriend of five years (and some time to get over that), I’ve recently re-entered the dating world. So far it’s a lot like I remember it to be; however, the only difference is that this time I’m not a virgin, and neither are most of the people I’ve been out with. And while I’m not quite ready to leap into bed with anyone, I’m becoming increasingly confused about the appropriate time to broach the subject of getting tested for STDs. Is there a way to bring up the topic without being offensive? I feel like I’m being a bit of a prude here, but after working for a college health center for a few years, and seeing the damage that STDs can do, I’m just not interested in putting my health at risk, even in the name of love. — Cleared for Takeoff
In my mind, Jessica Alba will always be post-apocalyptic soldier “Dark Angel.” To the male population, she will always be the scantily clad uber-hot chick. But in real life, Jessica says that she is extremely shy. “I don’t like being the center of attention,” she tells the December issue of Elle. Acting has been the way she’s gotten over her instinct to hide in the corner. “When I do comedy, I lose all inhibition and introspection,” she says. “I no longer care.”
After the jump, more stars we can’t believe are shy.

I’m back from a girlfriend getaway in paradise. Traveling with a best friend off the beaten path awakened joy in me and soothed my soul, but it also left me wondering: Why can’t I capture that sense of fun and wonder in everyday life? Why do I feel so stuck here in Boston, yet I was free as a bird in Mexico?
One idea: I took off my wedding ring while traveling. I think my naked ring finger gave rise to more open responses and deeper interactions than I would have otherwise experienced. Keep reading »
