For The Week Of June 15-21, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

This isn’t your time to vocalize your feelings or try to get your honey to get with your program, because the understanding won’t be there and will instead only drive you insane. Save your energy for other activities, as trying to get your way won’t be happening. Instead, think of this like a vacation and let all the rules fly out the window.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Dream up an adventure and go out on a limb. If your baby doesn’t follow, then take that as sign of Christmas future. Yes, your tedium in your current situation is only going to end when you put out the efforts to fan the flames again. However, once you give it a breath or two, it should catch. Otherwise, consider the heat dead.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Intimacy on that level you always dreamt of isn’t as far off as you think. Seems that certain someone has been holding back and this week, the damn gets broken, unleashing heavy passions and creating big revelations. This will cause a major 180 in your relationship trajectory, one in which the target is finally going to hit you where it counts.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Petty arguments and weird conversations will be taking center stage with your boo, making it one of those weeks you both try to outsmart the other and may only wind up creating more confusion than necessary. While the mental sparring gets old fast, do trust at the end of the day you are on the same emotional page and that is a beautiful thing.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your romantic nature will be inspired to go up and beyond to prove to that special someone how dedicated you are. Don’t hold back, as this is the time your boldness will be received in the right way and in turn, putting you in a whole new mindset that has you fearlessly in love, which is exactly anybody with any balls would wish to be.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

There will be a lot of dreamy promises made, leaving you to wonder how many of them will hold true down the line. However, instead of playing on the defensive, get yourself on the offensive and jumpstart those plans into action by being part of a team that doesn’t expect everyone else to play initiator and executor. Remember, it takes two to make a thing go right.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

A new feeling of love will come over you, turning you into a shut in with your baby. Seems a new energy arrives, creating an irresistible quality that’ll make you both feel like horny teenagers. Chances are this is one of those weeks where the future will seem so bright, you might promise it all. Of course, next week, that could be a whole other story.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Boning will seem too exhausting to you this week, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want your stimulation. This week, it’s all about the intellect, as your brain will be in the most need of attention. If your baby can come through on this end, all will be well. If he can’t, the repercussions won’t be pretty.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You’re going to have to step up the speed of your love life right now, because at the rate you are going, who knows what will come first—you or your social security check. Seriously, this is not the time to be on the fence, wondering how your love life will fall into perfect place. Now is the time for action, as motion is the only answer to make it happen.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Puzzles are your thing to figure out and sometimes that can be to your detriment, while other times that is your tease. This week, clarity comes for you big time and seeing a certain matter straight can mean finally seeing a certain someone for who they really are — which can be totally traumatic or insatiably sexy.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Nostalgia and sentimentality will be creeping up on you and the easy emotions you thought were disposable won’t prove to be such. Seems you have bitten onto something bigger than you and the normal apathetic route you prefer to take won’t be so possible, as curiosity, lust and respect will be tugging at your heartstrings hard.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Shocking information you hear from a friend is not be taken lightly. Accept it now; despite how harsh it might feel, as it’ll save you time and your ego from ruin. This could include a dose of tough love advice or learning something disturbing about your boo that’ll stop you dead in your tracks. Whichever the case, hold on tight, life is about to twist quite uncomfortably.

Is Boring Style A Dating Dealbreaker?

Because I’m young and carefree, I’ve been keeping my options open and dating a couple of guys at the same time. No more than two, because beyond that, things get a little sloppy. Well, two works until decision time comes around and you’re writing out each one’s pros versus cons. That’s where I am right now — paper-ready,with pen in hand.

Guy #1 is nice, funny and cute, but Guy #2 is gloriously attractive and kind of witty. Sort of. Sometimes. OK, barely. The choice seems clear: ditch the hot, boring guy in favor of the cute, funny one, right? Not so fast. I thought I had arrived at that conclusion, but still haven’t actually axed Guy #2. My conundrum, after the jump …

What Do You Do If Your Boyfriend Becomes A Smoker?

My boyfriend just came back from a semester abroad in Paris — and he came back a smoker. I am not a smoker. Never have been, never will be. I couldn’t smoke during high school as I was dancing professionally for an opera company, and by the time I got to college it just didn’t seem like a big deal anymore. Smoking has just never really been on my radar; I know it’s bad for you, obviously, but I don’t feel the need to go protest outside Phillip Morris.

I’ve never dated a smoker because I never liked a guy that did smoke. I am not sure if it’s because I don’t like smokers, or none of the guys I was into happened to smoke, or if there is any difference between the two. Maybe if they had smoked I wouldn’t have been attracted? Impossible to know. All of that has changed now. Keep reading »

How Long Should You Wait Before Getting Engaged?

10 Reasons Not To Have Kids Yet…Or Ever

Cameron Diaz thinks your kids are bad for the environment.

Well, no, not really. But she told Cosmopolitan she thinks women shouldn’t be pressured into procreating or “shunned” for not having kids because “honestly, we don’t need anymore kids. We have plenty of people on this planet already.”

While we agree with Cameron that it’s b.s. women still get hassled for not raising rugrats, we can think of far better reasons than old Mother Nature for staying childless. Our reasons, after the jump…

Dating Don’ts: What Secrets Should You Reveal In A Relationship?

How much do you really need to know?

I still remember the day I walked into my house only to be confronted by my entire family staring at me like I was an alien as my mother shrieked through her tears, “Thank god you’re home—I thought you were dead!!!”

Um, what? Keep reading »

What’s The 80/20 Rule?

Last night I watched Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” for the first time. (I know, I’m a little late, but I didn’t want to get hit over the head with religious talk, as Perry is known for.) It was an entertaining movie, but what really stuck out to me was the theory of the “80/20 Rule,” which I had never heard of. The rule says that men can have a wife or girlfriend who fulfills 80 percent of his needs, but he’ll go looking for someone else to make up the remaining 20 percent. He’ll leave the woman who takes care of him because the chick on the side is more exciting, sexual, and basically new. But soon after, the man will realize the 20 percent he has now pales in comparison to the 80 percent he already had. In a quest to have 100 percent of his needs fulfilled, he ends up with less than when he started. This kind of reminds me of the idea that twentysomethings are too narcissistic to find a mate — supposedly, we want all or nothing in a mate. Do you think there’s any validity to the 80/20 Rule? And does it apply to women too? Keep reading »

Is It A Proposal If There Isn’t A Ring?

Times are tough around the world, and we’re all cutting back in some area of our life. In Japan, one common cost-cutting measure seems to be diamond engagement rings. The percent of men who bought engagement rings will slip from 1993′s 80 percent to just 50 percent this year, according to estimates from the Yano Research Institute. Some couples are deciding to spend more on wedding bands, or to buy watches or other jewelry rather than investing in a rock. Certainly, people shouldn’t purchase engagement rings they can’t afford, but do you think it’s even necessary for a man to propose with a ring? We asked three women for their thoughts.

Is Narcissism Keeping You Single?

It’s no secret that people are getting married later these days than in previous generations, and in this culture of hook-ups and “modern female dating anxiety,” we’re at no loss for theories that explain why. Some people say today’s twentysomethings are delaying marriage to focus on careers and build close friendships instead, but another explanation paints a less flattering picture of young people: apparently, they’re all just a bunch of narcissists. In an article on The Daily Beast this week, writer Hannah Seligson, explores this theory, writing: “narcissism, even in small doses, has shifted courtship into a high-stakes relationship culture. Now that people think more highly of themselves, expectations of what a relationship should be like have skyrocketed into the realm of superlatives. Twentysomethings not only expect to waltz into high-level career positions right out of college, they also expect partners who have the moral fortitude of Nelson Mandela, the comedic timing of Stephen Colbert, the abs of Hugh Jackman, and the hair of Patrick Dempsey.” Keep reading »
