Dater X: Over And Out

By: Dater X / February 18, 2015
Laying in bed watching "Grey’s Anatomy" last week, I started wondering, as I have during nearly every episode recently, why the show has continued for so many seasons. All of the characters we originally knew and loved (big shoutout to the "Grey’s" OG, George O’Malley) have come and gone, the plot has become so farfetched… More »

Of Course There’s An App Based On Those “Fall In Love With Anyone” Questions

By: Claire Hannum / February 18, 2015
Remember those 36 questions that had a brief stranglehold on the internet about a month ago because of their alleged power to make anyone fall in love? The questions grow more intimate as the list wears on, increasing a sense of vulnerability to the two participants. Sharing responses to the questions with a partner, and staring… More »

Make It Work: How To Behave In An Open Office

By: Megan Reynolds / February 17, 2015
People make a lot of fuss about cubicles, and how they are soul-sucking, useless work environments. "I'm in a cage! I am not free," the cubicle dweller whines, but you know what? They have it better than most. Privacy! My kingdom for privacy. But open offices are the norm these days, and you heard it… More »

Dealbreaker: The Third Wheel Hated Me

By: Camille Guillot / February 17, 2015
The girl was great: Tyler, a bright-haired activist who confessed her crush on me after a feminist burlesque show. The dates were great: a Valentine's Day dance party in a warehouse-turned-art-gallery, a night in watching old movies. The third wheel, on the other hand, was not so great. Her best friend -- with an admitted… More »

Make It Stop: “My Ex Won’t Stop Liking Every Thing I Post On Social Media”

By: Anna Goldfarb / February 13, 2015
My ex, who I’ll call Tom, favorites all my posts, tweets, and Instagrams and it’s driving me crazy! I don’t know if he’s doing it to get my attention or what. I told him we could be friends when we broke up six months ago, but I didn’t mean, “Feel free to inundate my social… More »

High There Is Tinder For Potheads

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / February 11, 2015
Dating is hard enough, but imagine being a marijuana smoker trying to find love in a country that still, by and large, criminalizes their favorite herbal remedy. All you want is to find a like-toking pothead with a Volcano and a dealer on speed dial, but alas, your OKCupid matches are hit-or-miss. That seemingly cool… More »

Dater X: V-Day & The L-Word

By: Dater X / February 11, 2015
Valentine’s Day is juuuuust around the bend, and in unusual circumstances for me, I can actually celebrate it this year with, GASP,  a man. I’ve always been a fan of Valentine’s Day, even at my most miserably single, because as a person who loves a lot (and always really, really hard), I bask in any… More »

My 9 Favorite Relationships In Pop Culture

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / February 11, 2015
There are plenty of really, truly bad relationships in pop culture (Christian and Ana, anyone? Romeo and Juliet?), and even the sort of mediocre relationships in pop culture would be considered totally melodramatic and probably borderline unhealthy if you took them out of fiction and put them in real life. But there are… More »

Loveflutter’s #AntiSelfieDay Is A Shallow, Cynical Branding Campaign

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / February 10, 2015
Apparently the people who run the dating app Loveflutter are gluttons for punishment[/members], because they tweeted their new social media campaign at me. I’m sure I’m on their list of people to tweet social media campaigns at because of this post I did about their brown bag speed-dating events (I laughed out loud reading… More »

Make It Work: The 6 Coworkers We All Have

By: Megan Reynolds / February 10, 2015
Work is kind of a slog as is, but if you work with people you hate? Well, start looking for something else, because the people you surround yourself with in the office are almost as important as the actual job itself. We can’t all be blessed with coworkers that are competent facsimiles of our best friends. Instead,… More »

11 Supposedly Romantic/Sexy Things That Are Actually Terrible

By: Robyn Pennacchia / February 9, 2015
Valentine's Day is almost here--and you know what that means! Piles and piles of listicles suggesting romantic tips for couples looking to spice up their love lives. Most of those suggestions will be either awkward or terrible. Then again, so are--I would say--the vast majority of things traditionally considered generically romantic and/or sexy. For example... 1.

10 Reasons Most “Bachelor” Relationships Don’t Work Out

By: YourTango.com / February 9, 2015
I've been watching "The Bachelor" since middle school. Yeah, it's been on for that long, and I remember watching the first "Bachelor" couple in history say "I do." Those two were Trista and Ryan. They are still together eight years later, however, "The Bachelor" was a little bit different then. It was much less dramatic and a lot… More »

On Paul Elam, Men’s Rights & Gender Extremism

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / February 6, 2015
Paul Elam, the founder of men’s rights website A Voice For Men, has been railing against women, and against preferential treatment for women in custody battles, for decades. Which is funny, because it turns out he voluntarily signed away his parental rights, according to a Buzzfeed feature on Elam, complete with an interview with… More »

Make It Stop: “My Boyfriend Keeps Sabotaging My Diet!”

By: Anna Goldfarb / February 6, 2015
I’m trying to lose weight, but my boyfriend, who I’ll call Joey, keeps sabotaging me. Like, if I want a side salad, he’ll talk me into ordering the French fries as a reward because I’ve been so good with my diet all week. Or he’ll stock his freezer full of ice cream knowing full well… More »

Mommie Dearest: I’m A Parent With Postpartum Anxiety

By: Avital Norman Nathman / February 6, 2015
When it started, I thought it was just a stomach thing. I had probably unwittingly eaten some dairy, my usual digestive foe. But the mild nausea showed no signs of letting up. Two weeks, then three. I couldn't ignore it anymore. It had gone from a minor inconvenience to an omnipresent feeling, lurking deep dow… More »

Want To Feel Truly Happy? Then Stop Using These 2 Words ASAP

By: YourTango.com / February 5, 2015
These two simple little words steal your joy fast (and, sometimes, steal it forever). When I was a little girl my mother never ate peaches. One day, I asked her why she wouldn't eat those delicious, juicy fruits that tasted like  happiness to me. She explained that in 1935, she ate a peach and it made… More »
