Cut All The Cyberstalking, Girls!

A new survey of more than 800 college students found that over 60 percent of admitted cyberstalkers were female. More than 30 percent ‘fessed up to hacking into their S.O.’s email accounts. Researchers also found that women were way more likely than men to stalk Facebook or check cellphone histories. While I can say I am anti-snooping, I know there are times when perfectly logical, not insane women are put in a position where cyberstalking is the correct course of action. Luckily, I have never been in that position and I hope I never will. To all of the other females engaging in extraneous cyberstalking — cut that crap out! Sigh. What do these results say about us? That we’re more insecure than men? That we’re more jealous? I propose an antidote to cyberstalking. If you are feeling the urge to stalk your sweetie online, Google yourself instead. It’s totally addictive, narcissistic, and harmful to no one. Problem solved. [New Scientist] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Dad Is My Valentine

This morning, like every morning, I poked my computer “on” and shuffled into the kitchen to pour myself a cup of coffee. Sitting in my favorite mug next to the coffee maker was a package of Reese’s peanut butter hearts. I scampered into the living room to find my dad. “Thank you!” I trilled. “Happy Valentine’s Day!” He just grinned. “I tried to get you a heart-shaped box of chocolates,” he said, “but I think I waited too long because they already had Easter candy out last night.”

My dad does this every year and every year it makes me really happy to be his daughter. Even the years when I’ve been at college, living in an apartment on my own or studying abroad in Europe, Dad has made sure I had a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day. Yes, it might sound loser-ish, but to me it’s totally sweet: my dad is my Valentine. I don’t mean for this to be creepy, but I am being sincere. My dad as a Valentine has never disappointed.

For The Week Of February 14-20, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Know when to cut your losses and move on. Otherwise, pushing for answers won’t be to your favor. Besides, you don’t have to win every battle to win the war anyway. Chalk this one up to keeping the balance and stay focused on the bigger picture … and although justice can’t be yours now, doesn’t mean peace of mind can’t come in other ways — AKA through credit cards.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Don’t be fast to judge your honey’s friends and whom he associates with. While more than a few will never be your BFF, there are quite enough for you to bond with and start creating deeper roots with — if you put in the effort. After all, the future is coming and if you want to make this last, it’ll mean being birds of some kind of feather, even if it means keeping up appearances.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

A serious turn of events is coming for you, revealing that you are even more powerful than you suspected. Yes, something you knew was going to go down will start to fall into place and shock you beyond belief. Even though you knew it was coming, you’ll find out that getting what you want will feel a lot different than you imagined.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Throw the chips where they may and let the consequences follow. This is your time to act out on your wildest dreams and see who can keep up. Chances are there will be a few dark horses in the running now and it might just amaze and shock you to see who actually can give you a run for your money.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

The sexual energy brewing this week will blow your mind (among others things), as it will have you connecting with that certain someone on a whole new and intense level. So, if you’ve been eyeing a certain cutie, waiting for that special day with that new honey, or are totally committed, use this week as your gateway to new adventures. It’s a one-way trip you won’t want to miss.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You can’t fight fate. So, if things aren’t going exactly as you wish, just take those lemons and throw them at the person ruining your dream. While it might not help to get angry, it’ll at least free you of the frustration and allow you to express yourself in a more primal form, which will do wonders for your morale and show others how much you actually are affected.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Time to pull some strings and work your connections, as it might even shock you how hooked up you actually are. If you connect the dots, this can be one of those winning weeks when you will see that you haven’t gone unnoticed and that if you clap your hands, those who adore you will come to serve.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This week will have one of those beautiful moments in love that can result in a lovely new understanding with your boo or a major epiphany that can have you seething with such animosity that you will want to KILL. So, whichever side of the rainbow your affairs falls on this week, expect intense drama and leave the sharp objects out of range.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You can have it all, as long as you make the right sacrifices and have the right support behind you. If this means asking your honey to pick up the slack at home, do it and be direct. After all, you aren’t asking for anything you wouldn’t do yourself — and without being asked. So, push the buttons for ultimate equality and learn where you truly stand at the end of the day.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Everyone is entitled to opinions; so if you can’t take it, don’t dish it. Yes, strong accusations will be flying and half of them won’t even be real, as they’ll be said out of anger or hurt. While the truth will be in there somewhere, unless you patiently shift it out, it won’t ever get revealed. So make your decision now if you actually do want to face it, as that is the only way.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Sometimes you are going to have to settle for almost right instead of all the way—like this week. Although you will crave more intimacy with your special someone, it won’t be totally possible. Seems group dynamics will be taking shape this week and it won’t give you too much alone time. Not to say it will totally cramp your style, but whatever, at least it’s still all love.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Although you may have started this month on a love high note, this week things will get a bit more serious and your perspective may change. This could mean new information comes your way or just a moody sensation that you can’t seem to shake. Whatever the case, your instincts are trying to tell you something and if you were smart, you’d heed your own warning.
