When I stand under the chuppah on my wedding day, I’ll have seven bridesmaids by my side, and my fiancé will have six groomsmen by his (plus my brother-in-law who, though officiating, will be the seventh for all intents and purposes). I never envisioned myself with a large wedding party. And, by some people’s standards,… More »
Magic — it does a lot of good in this world! But I don’t think it will lead you to finding a husband, no matter how strongly you believe. Writer and international traveller Jo Piazza (who has contributed to The Frisky), in a piece for ELLE, speculates that magic is what helped her meet and become engaged to the man of… More »
Now, more than ever before, I have come to a point in my life where I just have zero patience for certain types of men. Part of the reason for this is that I’ve had much more dating experience, but I think more importantly, I have gained a certain degree of self-confidence after surviving college… More »
Most of the time, I’d rather I was a less emotionally raw person. I would be so much less exhausted at the end of the day. More »
I never want to be a primary parent; I very much want to nurture and raise children as part of a committed family unit.

We want control because we want certainty. That’s a totally reasonable thing to desire, but it’s also 100 percent impossible, so maybe let that dream go right about now. More »
For basically all of my adult life, I did not “date” in the conventional sense. I can count on one hand the number of times I went out to dinner with a near-stranger and suffered through the usual litany of “what do you do?”, “where are you from?”, “what flavor of toothpaste do you like… More »
I’m terrible at asking for help. I’m one of those people who will drive myself insane trying to do everything alone rather than dare reach out for assistance. And not just that: I also preemptively take on tasks and responsibilities, whether asked of me or not, to I don’t know, make life easier on everyone… More »

I knew exactly what I’d do if I found out my partner had cheated. At least, I thought I did. The truth of the matter is, no one knows how they will react in that situation until they are faced with the agonizing truth. Your mind will be flooded with questions like “Why did this… More »

Getting over your ex is one of the great dilemmas of manhood. It’s rarely a quick and easy process, and it’s often complicated by all the things that the two of you still have in common, like friends, favorite hangouts and even living quarters.
Maybe the most frustrating thing about the whole process is… More »
Most of us have at least one person in our lives who leaves us feeling drained after every interaction with them.
