Sassy sophisticated relationship advice for real women everywhere: dating advice, love advice, and more!

Bound & Bothered

Who gets on your nerves? If you said your spouse, you agree with most married people. (If you are single, like myself, let’s take this moment to laugh at the little things that annoy us since we aren’t contractually obligated to them for life.) According to a study conducted by the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, the longer a couple is married, the more things they find annoying about each other. Aw, isn’t love grand? While couples in their 20’s and 30’s may be vocal and try to work things out, 40-plus people just seem to give up and get along. This behavior begs the question: does keeping quiet make things better or worse? Either way, you’re bound to be bothered by your ball and chain. [Afroromance] Keep reading »

The Matrimommy: Not Lovin’ McLovin’

My two and a half year old son has taken to calling himself “McLovin’”. Needless to say, that is not his name.

This new moniker originated courtesy of my husband, R. who, clearly in a moment of amazing judgment, decided to watch a portion of Superbad with our toddler son. As if exposing a toddler to this generation’s Porky’s wasn’t moronic enough, neglecting to remember that he recently has been parrot-like in his repeating of everything he hears just adds insult to the cinematic injury.

A Totally Scientific Dateability Quiz

In Thrillist’s Top Five Things That Your Dude Is Totally Going To Want this week, they’ve got a link to a site that measures a guy’s dateability. I discovered they have a similar quiz for women and decided to take it. As you can see, I am a 6.38, which seems a little low. Catherine was a 7.00 — I wonder what she did to deserve that? That said, I took the guy’s quiz for my feef and he got a 5.88 so technically he is dating out of his league. Or I’m dating below mine. Whatever. I hate this quiz. [Hellarity.org] Keep reading »

Do You Mommy Your Man?

Okay ladies, ‘fess up. Do you wash your man’s back when he’s in the shower? Do you make him lunch and put little love notes written on napkins in the bag? Do you put the perfect amount of toothpaste on his brush before he goes to bed at night? Do you….MOMMY him? CNN has a story about women who mother their husbands and boyfriends, saying their nurturing gene is on overdrive. Ya think? What about the dudes who are oh so willing to be babied? I must admit that I do things like put my feef’s dirty clothes in the hamper and pester him about going to the doctor to get his busted knee examined, but that’s mainly because he’s messy and absent minded, not in need of a mommy around the house. When does nurturing go from sweet to scary? [CNN] Keep reading »

Love Vandal: Old School

Don’t these giant cement blocks remind you of the walls in your elementary school gym? I wonder if anyone got a detention for drawing this…
