It’s been three years since I’ve uttered the phrase, “This is my boyfriend, __________.” So every time I’ve said it in the past two weeks, as the word ‘boyfriend’ passed through my lips, it felt both totally foreign and completely natural.

Spending the night with you and, specifically, how you behave in the morning, tells us a whole lot about what kind of man you are. If the good times keep rolling when the sun comes up, you’ll leave us wanting more good times. Consider the morning after make it or break it time. After the jump, some guys we DO and DON’T like to wake up next to. Add your morning after dealmakers and dealbreakers in the comments. Keep reading »
In a classic episode of “Sex and the City,” Miranda has an epiphany: A guy may “just not be that into” her.
Miranda was thrilled with this revelation. She can now stop being anxiety-ridden over a man’s mixed messages. She can now shrug and say, “Well, he’s just not that into me,” and move on. Women everywhere sighed with relief … or did we? Keep reading »
