I’ve come to the conclusion that the absolute worst part of going through a breakup is that one of the common reactions is insane distrust — distrust of yourself, the person you were with, and of the relationship’s meaning. This is something I’ve been struggling with throughout my break/breakup/”separation” from my fiance, which has officially gone on for seven weeks exactly. Unfortunately, I may be aware that I’m filled with doubt, but I haven’t quite figured out how to stop doing it. After the jump, about 10,000 questions totally plaguing me. Keep reading »
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You never know who is going to pop into town this week, so prepare by doing a light sweep through your home and get it ready for anything, as your bed will be the place of many possibilities. If this seems like an absurdity, then be open to the fact that it might be you that will be the one laying her head down somewhere unexpected.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
If you think of your relationship like a business, in terms of money, life together will be much easier to tackle. This will probably include doing a complete financial overhaul in how you both treat your cash and possibly each other, but unless you level the playing field, someone will be bitterly holding onto the shorter end of there stick and that person is most likely you.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Thank your lucky stars as Mercury enters Scorpio on the 5th, putting your brain in the fast lane to move forward unflinchingly. Yes, they’ll be no more second-guessing, as you happily go into a mental cruise control and see the obvious more comfortably and succinctly than ever. You know it; your Scorpio sex-bombness is back in full action!
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Your idealism and creativity will be reaching new levels, but don’t use your power for over estimating a hot guy with a dull mind, as accepting what you see is what you get will be your biggest challenge this week. However, being that you are the original fun time gal, as long as it feels good, why think too deeply about anything? Inspiration comes in all forms.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Beware of at least one friend shooting off unsavory comments about your current state of affairs. While it’s obvious that she or he is jealous and trying to pick a fight, don’t fall into the trap by rebutting. Resist being an outlet for their sexual frustrations, but don’t be a bitch either and rub it back into their face (too hard).
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
All those idiosyncrasies about your honey that you’ve convinced yourself are endearing qualities will start to unnerve you again. Chances are it’ll make you wonder why you’re in your current relationship and if your man isn’t actually holding you back. Resist running into the fire, instead put in longer hours at work to get space and reconfigure your priorities.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Actions and words from your crush du jour will finally sync up, giving you the green light to go off the deep end in love. While this means making big plans, do understand that it’ll require you to take the reins and be the dominant one. If this bodes well for you, welcome to your fantasy. If not, know it’ll get old fast — so, get all the good sex in while you can still stomach him.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Your relationship paranoias and jealousies will make you act in all sorts of erratic ways, as you’ll want to probe your suspicions while trying to ignore them at the same time. To say the least, it’ll be a bit of a messy time for you as you mentally plunge into the depths of your soul to sort out your deepest feelings and your true sense of confidence.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
As long as you look like you’re paying attention, that’s half the battle, as it’ll be your boo’s turn to start harping on his issues about you. Sure, some of his comments may have some truth to it, but nobody is perfect and at the end of the day, he’s just looking to express himself. To make amends and win the war, once done with his diatribe, blow him and all will be fine.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Your biggest pet peeve is a dim wit, and as your sweetie starts to show signs of slowing down, expect your drought to begin. However, realize that it’s not that he is suddenly becoming dumb, but rather more secretive. Should you be suspicious? Perhaps. If you care, put on your investigative hat and dig for answers. At the least, it’ll be good gossip material.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Forget trying to get too deep and too intimate with that special someone too quickly. Obviously you have a mental connection, but trying to force it to go faster than necessary will only screw up the natural pace and although you are too horny for words, make playful communication your foreplay and it will trigger an explosive and eventual turn of events.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
If you can stay focused on feeling gorgeous and brilliant, you’ll be invincible. However, be warned they’ll be many sleazy comments thrown at you, trying to knock you down, as the haters will be out and trying to claim your pride as the prize. You better believe it, time for your absolute hottest outfits as your armor and strut it like it’s going out of style.
There are a lot of movies I’d love to see that no one ever wants to actually watch with me, either because they think the movie is going to blow (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua”) or because I want to go at inconvenient times and they just can’t (like right now, I have a hankering to finally see “Rachel Getting Married” and no one is answering my text messages, those bitches). That’s why I’ve gotten awfully used to go to the movies alone and frankly, I kind of prefer it to fighting for seats with a group of girlfriends. After the jump, five reasons why having a date at the movies, totally sucks. Keep reading »
A few months ago, while promoting their movie “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2″, there seemed to be some tension between co-stars Blake Lively and America Ferrera. When Ferrera, whom we usually lovvvve, commented to a teen magazine that she thought shows like “Gossip Girl” were a bad influence, and appeared bored when an interviewers was asking Lively about the show, we wondered if the two might be frenemies instead of besties. After the jump, how to avoid developing toxic friendships. Keep reading »
A friend call me the other day. She was struggling to figure out what was going on with her relationship of a month. He’d do sweet things, like post photos of the two of them on Facebook. Then he’d write curt responses to her e-mails. Normally, she’s extremely self-confident, self-assured, and successful in life. It was disheartening to see her brought down by the unknown of it all.

“My boyfriend wants to start swinging. He says it has been something he’s wanted to do for a long time. It has nothing to do with being bored with our sex life, but he feels it could add a new dimension to the way we have sex and love each other. I trust him and I feel that it’s great he can be open about his sexual fantasies with me, but I don’t want to do it. I’m a Capricorn; he’s an Aquarius. I think with diseases out there, it sounds unsafe. He won’t do it without me, but I know he’ll be upset if I didn’t say yes. How can we both be happy?” – At A Standstill Keep reading »
The unthinkable has happened. He asked you out. The only guys who renders you speechless. The guy so smart, handsome and unbelievably hot you can do little more than blush and stutter in his presence. And now you’re going out with him. Tomorrow. Hooray?
Your friends think it’s cute that you’re in such a panic, but you can’t see any humor in the situation. Not only do you have to lose ten pounds, grow an extra cup size and somehow talk your mousey mop into looking like Jennifer Aniston’s—you have to do it all by tomorrow. Oh, and you should probably also think about regaining your powers of speech. What to wear? What to smell like? What to do?
Okay, I can’t really help you with that, but here are a few things you definitely shouldn’t do, after the jump… Keep reading »
Being in a relationship can be a habit-changing experience. Your Friday nights scoping out the bar scene with your single friends has morphed into romantic dinners or movie night with your new boyfriend. So, how do you balance your new love life with your old social life? And most importantly, how do you not lose your friends?
Schedule, Schedule, Schedule: Scheduling “life” can be boring as hell…but as you get older and have more important people in your life, you realize it’s a necessary evil. Seeing your boyfriend on Friday night? Then schedule some much needed girl time on Saturday night. Is he doing something sweaty and active on Sunday (can we come??), then plan a girl brunch with lots of mimosas. But what happens if you live together? The same rules apply! If he has a standing date with the brahs to watch Monday night football at a bar, then make it girl’s potluck dinner at the love nest. Think of it as scheduling tango. Keep reading »
