Ask Men | April 3, 2016 - 11:00 am

Breakups suck. There’s no getting around it. Whether it’s sudden (ouch) or a long time coming (oof), breakups hurt. They’re messy, literally and figuratively.

I Want to Marry A Prince — Do You Have A Problem With That?

Pop Sugar | March 25, 2016 - 6:30 pm

When I was a teenager, I didn’t dream of marrying a Hollywood star. I dreamed of marrying a prince. Like a real one. From Europe. Preferably from England.
