I’m already planning the rom-com about this meet-cute. I would like Kate Hudson to play me (or, per a coworker’s suggestion, Jennifer Lawrence in a blonde wig), and Chris Pratt to play Rich. To remind you, Rich is the comedian who almost flawlessly impersonates characters from 25 of the most beloved Christmas movies.
For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the low down. Earlier this week, I penned a “Be My Boyfriend” letter to Rich here on The Frisky. I was floored by how accurate his impressions were in his “25 Days of Christmas Movie Impressions” video, and wanted to tip my hat to him. I told him about how I wanted to find him under my Christmas tree this year and that I would write to Santa to please deliver him. (Yes, that is how I tip my hat. Don’t hate.) Keep reading »
Break-ups are tough enough as it is, but a heartbreak during the holiday season is particularly excruciating. Nobody wants to be surrounded by gushy holiday cheer bullshit when their heart is torn in two. Here’s what to buy for that fantastic, talented, loving, newly single friend of yours who deserves way better than her ex anyway.
Like many American families who celebrate Christmas, mine does it in a pretty secular way. The more observant among us attend services to mark the holiday, but the magnet that pulls our scattered members across the country to one point in the Midwest is, I think, the same as what brings you and yours together on your special occasions. Togetherness. Kinship. Love — however mixed up with less-exalted emotions — of family.

Our prayers have been answered, ladies! Remember Whitney Wolfe, the former Tinder executive who claimed to be sexually harassed by the company’s CMO, and then was unfairly stripped of her co-founder title? Well it looks like Tinder messed with the wrong badass chick.
Last week, TechCrunch announced that Whitney, along with some other former Tinder employees, have created a dating app of their own, called Bumble— a Tinder competitor. It’s like Tinder in that users are expected to swipe left or right depending on their interest in another’s profile, but there is one thing that is radically different: on Bumble, boys are NOT allowed to send the first message.
BOOYAH. Keep reading »
Last Friday, I was hanging out with two of my girlfriends and our pals Jack and José (Daniels and Cuervo, that is), when I heard myself uttering the words, “He’s obviously intimidated by your success.” Though a cliche, I actually meant it. I was trying to console my friend Bree, who had just been ghosted by a guy she really liked. After listening to the series of events which had taken place with her and Bartender Dude over the course of a couple weeks— they met through mutual friends, went on a couple dates and really seemed to hit it off, but after she brought up her enviable career and future aspirations, he backed off and then faded completely. it seemed to me like the guy she was seeing really WAS intimidated by the fact that she, in simple terms, has her shit together. So what is it about a successful woman that some men see as a threat instead of a turn-on? Keep reading »
