We ladies take on an awful lot of the responsibility when a date goes bad. But sometimes it’s just not our fault. Sometimes the guys we date just don’t know when to shut up, and end up saying rude, stupid or downright utterly shocking things to us. After the jump, some of THE WORST first date confessions we’ve heard from guys. Stuff they should have waited to say or, perhaps, never said at all. It’s not that we don’t appreciate their candidness — but perhaps they should have waited until we got to know each other a little better before confessing their deepest secrets.
And don’t forget to tell us about the worst, most appalling, or surprising thing a guy’s ever confessed to you. Keep reading »
I’d like to extend a shout-out to Matt Daley and Bobby Canciello, two college dudes who set out to raise awareness for LGBTQ equal rights by breaking the Guinness World Record for the “longest continuous kiss.” After a 33-hour kissing sesh, they walked away with some tired lips and a world record.

The show is one of the most expensive ever made—the pilot cost $50 million and required the building of a replica Atlantic City boardwalk in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. And so we all wondered if the series would be evocative of a specific era, à la its Sunday night TV neighbor “Mad Men
.” Or if it would be more like “Treme”—interesting, but I only tuned in once.
After watching last night, my verdict is … Keep reading »
I live in New York City, where every third person on the street has some kind of ink. So it’s easy for me to forget that tattoos often have a whole different set of connotations in that wide swath of country between the East and West coasts.
Luckily, the internet never hesitates to remind me. Since I started starring in a weekly web series, I’ve been called everything from a “tattooed longshoreman” to a “goblin.” (The goblin comment was probably unrelated to my tattoos, but it was still super mean.) And when a piece I wrote on weight loss for The Frisky ended up being featured on CNN.com, the photo featuring my tattooed arms quickly overshadowed the article’s content. Keep reading »
