Adultery Gets Economically Stimulated

John Edwards, Balthazar Getty, Eliot Spitzer, cheating husbands have been all over the news here in the States. But in Britain, adulterous wives are the ones making headlines. According to the Telegraph U.K., more lonely housewives are looking for love on the Internet than ever before. Sites like IllicitEncounters.com have seen their numbers jump from 55 women signing up a day in 2007 to the nearly triple 142 times a day average just last week. What’s driving these women to look for hot sex behind their husbands’ backs? Well, Sara Hartley, a spokeswoman for the site, thinks the plummeting economy is causing the rise in cheaters. While their white-collar husbands are busy working long hours to fight the credit crisis and keep their jobs, their trophy wives are getting bored. Women with nothing to do but wait around for their husbands? Grrr…. I suppose everyone needs love, so who can blame these Hester Prynne’s for taking matters into their own hands via the Interweb? Hmm, wonder if American women will be using their economic stimulus checks to cheat on their husbands too? [Telegraph U.K.] Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: The Eight Lousiest Apologies Ever

Despite what that old chestnut Love Story will have you believe, love doesn’t mean never having to say you’re sorry. In fact, one of the most important components of any relationship is the ability to suck it up and apologize every now and again. It’s hardly brain surgery, but who among us hasn’t been the recipient of an apology that wound up making you feel even worse than the original transgression?

For something that’s basically a no-brainer, there’s a bevy of ways to get it very, very wrong. In fact, the late Randy Pausch’s bestseller, The Last Lecture has an entire chapter called “A bad apology is worse than no apology.” Now granted, men are definitely more prone to the botched apology (see John Edwards, Bill Clinton, etcetera), but we ladies have also been known to blow an act of contrition on occasion. After the jump, some apology strategies to avoid… Keep reading »

    Fashion Week: Never Heard Of Thuy? You Will Now!

    Imagine if Barbarella fronted Blondie, dressed in early-’90s Versace and LaCroix. Thuy’s spring/summer collection for 2009 was full of imagination, surprises and precise style. The combination of metallics and bold hues gave a very interesting and almost unexpected look for the spring/summer season.

    The Online Dating Site For Animals

    Animals in captivity don’t get out much, and it’s hard for them to find a partner who they’d like to mate with when they’re confined to their cages. To help their animals reproduce when they’re ready, more than 200 zoos in the U.S. and other countries are entering information into an online computerized matchmaking database that keeps track of sex, age, weight, and personality traits in an effort to find pairs that would be a fit for making cubs, calves, pups, kits, or chicks. The Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, S.C., is hoping the online studbook will help their koala, Killarney, find a guy she doesn’t hit or ignore — she’s a difficult lady, but there must some guy who can handle her, right?
