Put down the self-help books, singletons looking for love. Unsubscribe to Dear Abby. Tell Steve Harvey to slow his roll. I have all the relationship advice you’ll ever need. Go get a pen, and write this down: quit trying.
I don’t mean quit dating, or quit looking for people to spend your life with. I mean that once you bang someone or date them and it feels weird, or they do something that kind of irks you or they’re not treating you how you want to be treated, stop dating that person. If you think communicating with them is more awkward or intimidating than you’d like it to be, or they won’t give you what you reasonably like in bed, or if they make you think you need to look, act or dress differently, stop dating that person.
Stop dating that person immediately and move on to the next person. Keep reading »
According to the Howie Mandel-helmed show “Mobbed,” women just love elaborately choreographed proposals, involving hundreds of singers and dancers, and complex ruses. This particular proposal, though, doesn’t strike me as romantic–AT ALL. Nope. It just seems incredibly emotionally manipulative and messed up. Watch, as this poor woman thinks her boyfriend’s been cheating on her, and then is assaulted by a seemingly endless musical number. Geez. Pretty screwed up if you ask me. [FashionIndie]
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): When it comes to setting things straight with your honey this week, all you have to do is hold your head up high and remember who you are. Yes, you’re fabulous and you know who you are, what you want and how others should treat you. You are a nonnegotiable package deal that comes with so much more than any one could ask for. If you own this, then all will work out just right.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Live it up and love hard. This week is made for you and all that you wish in romance. If you’re single, this means putting on those F-Me heels and hitting the holiday parties — this is the time when Cupid is out looking for you and if you circulate, you will give him a clear shot. Even if it’s not forever, it’ll be just enough to make this season as jolly as can be. Keep reading »
We are all guilty of Facebook stalking. All of us! And I’m going to tell you that I think that’s perfectly okay. Isn’t that what Facebook is for? The hard part about Facebook stalking is that you can never let people know that you do it or else you will be known as a creep (even though the people calling you a creep Facebook stalk as much as you do, if not more).
If you’re reading this and you’re in denial that you are a Grade-A Facebook stalker or you think you’re a Facebook stalker and just want it confirmed, check out these five signs that you are a certified NORMAL PERSON BECAUSE WE ALL DO IT. Keep reading »
Whether he’s the one can’t be known, argued twice-married writer, Christopher Hitchens. Hitchens passed away this week at the age of 62.
There are some lessons that can’t be transmitted down the generations, and the most conspicuous of these is the choice of your life partner.
There’s no damn heritability. In fact, this is a case where you can’t even profit by other people’s mistakes. Which of us has not seen a friend whose parents didn’t get along make the very same blunder? Which of us has not seen a person from a happy family ignore her mother’s fine example? Which of us has not known a couple, contentedly living in sin, fly apart as soon as they tie the legal knot? All I have learned, from absorbing moisture on both shoulders, is that what you find out about others is almost never what you would have expected. And as for yourself… Keep reading »
