It’s Time To Stop Sleeping With A Teddy Bear

Dear Gregory,

I think we should stop sleeping together.

This is hard for me, because we’ve known each other forever. I want you to know how special your relationship has been to me: going to London and Prague together, moving into our first apartment, nursing me through that awful sinus infection. There will always be a soft spot for you in my heart. But I’m moving in with my boyfriend at the end of the month and there isn’t room for you in my life anymore.

I’m sorry, Gregory, but I’ve been an adult woman for a while now and it’s time I stopped sleeping with a teddy bear. Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: It’s Time For A Dating Attitude Adjustment

Few things are more entertaining than bad date stories. Who wants to hear about hearts and flowers when flatulence and festering sores are so much more fun? Which is why when my friend Sal wanted to share what she assured me were horror stories about her recent attempts at online dating, I was ecstatic – joke material!

As I slid onto the bar stool next to her, I noticed she looked a little down. I immediately felt guilty about my initial excitement. Hmm. “What happened?” I asked.

“Nothing really,” she shrugged. It seems she’d met up with two different men and both were just meh. “I had nothing in common with either,” she complained.

“And?” I inquired.

She shot me a look. “And what?” she answered. “They were both really boring.”

30-Day Breakup Guide: Day 22

Get Your Hair Did
You’ve had an appropriate post-breakup mourning period, so chances are you’re not going to do something outrageous, like try the Natalie Portman pixie cut that only Natalie Portman can pull off. That said, dip your toe into the crazy. Page through some mags to get ideas for what you want to do to your hair. Always wanted a red tint? Do it. Thought about bangs and a bob? The time is now. (If you’re short on cash, get a good blowout.) Another idea: Check out the weekly tabloid magazines and find a picture of an actress who seems to have it together (Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet are good choices). Borrow from her look as an homage to coming out better at the end of this.

Girl Talk: Why EChem is Just Not Enough

I heart words and communication. This includes emails, text messages, Gchat, Blackberry Messenger, iChat — the works. I am a sucker for a well-crafted email or a witty text message. My motto: The way to my heart is through my brain. That’s why I thought Joe could be Mr. Perfect for me. Joe and I met one night at a work gala. I had already put away an entire bottle of wine when I almost knocked him over on the dance floor.

“Do you like to dance, beautiful girl who almost stepped on my foot?” he asked.

“Only when I’m drunk. When I’m sober, I dance like Elaine from ‘Seinfeld.’” I replied.

It was a rainy October night and Joe offered to escort me to the subway when the event ended, impressed that I could: a.) still walk and b.) do it in 3-inch heels. “Email me,” I slurred, handing him my business card, “I loooove emails.”

Mushy Moment Of The Day: Couple Marries After Long-Lost Love Letter Was Discovered

This is one of those moments that makes me believe true love does exist. Steve Smith and Carmen Ruiz-Perez, both 42, finally walked down the aisle after 16 years of separation. The couple fell in love and became engaged when they were in their 20s, but drifted apart when Ruiz-Perez had to move back to France from England. After a few years, Smith sent her a love letter in the hopes of rekindling the romance.

What’s Your Boyfriend Or Husband Criteria?

Buzzfeed posted a great list from Tiny Cartridge of “Boyfriend Criteria,” including the usual “smart,” “cute,” “funny,” and the more unusual like “did not pick Charmander as first Pokémon.” There’s also a list of pluses (“glasses,” “good shoes,” “good tattoo”) and minuses (“annoying,” “too tight pants,” “think you’re sooo smart”). Since I’m getting married in three days (!!!), the list got me thinking about my “husband criteria” and how well my fiancé fits my list. After the jump, see how he does. Keep reading »
