In these modern times, hussies like us spend a lot of time at our boyfriend’s apartment/house, but do not actually live there. (Conversely, he might be the one at your place.) We may have a toothbrush in his bathroom, but we aren’t paying his rent. So it’s not really our place to do whatever we want.
As such, the proper to behave can befuddle even the smartest of whips. Can you drink the last can of PBR? Do you have to let his dog sleep beside you? Is it acceptable to TiVo every single episode of “Chelsea Lately” on his DVR?
I will explain it all, after the jump: Keep reading »
Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Your comfort level will be under siege which will mean you’ll need to fight a little harder to get the space you need to be able to stretch out and really be you. So, whatever impedes your life, deal. Yes, forget trying to adjust to another’s situation, because conquering this situation properly means getting the world to adapt to your needs.
Pisces (February 20-March 20): You’re a dreamer; that is your blessing and your curse. This week, it’ll likely be your saving grace, as you will need a boost of imagination to give you a sense of direction on where you want to go. So, no matter how fantastical you think your mind may lead you, believe in it, because it’s just about now that a fairy tale twist can save your idea of humanity. Keep reading »
I am not afraid to admit that I have had two online dating accounts — one with Plenty Of Fish and another with OK Cupid. I have been messaged by hundreds of guys, which lead to three dates, and absolutely ZERO luck. I feel like I’m in one of those Lucky Charms commercials. Whoever my Mr. Right is sure knows how to use his “marshmallow magic” to hide in the sea of uninteresting, not cute enough, too shallow or completely skeevy men who have barraged my inbox with messages.
All of this disappointment has me wondering, am I just too picky? Today I found the answer: Yes — but it’s not my fault (whew!). Thanks to a CNN Health article called “Dating and the Challenge of Too Many Choices,” I now know that when people are faced with too many options (as most ladies are in the online dating world), they tend to choose none at all.

Take a look at this wedding save-the-date card. It’s so awesome — can you see why? Take another look. Still can’t see what makes it so incredible? It’s kind of hard to see, but …

After hours in front of my laptop, my back is usually gnarled into a “C” shape. I’ve learned to remedy the Ladyblogging Hunchback with some yoga. But this afternoon, when I checked the schedule and read the instructor’s name, Matthew, I started making excuses not to go. I don’t know Matthew, but I might have felt differently if his name were Melissa or Miranda. It isn’t just about my fear of a dude adjusting my warrior pose, it’s a pattern. I have always been like this — with male dentists, doctors, therapists, even Santa Claus. Why am I scared of men? Keep reading »
