Dane Cook is one of those people I don’t like. I don’t “get” him would be a nice way of putting it. I don’t find him attractive, funny, or interesting. My best friend once forced me to watch a movie with him in it, and it was so godawful that I’ve blocked out the majority of it. If I was going to take dating advice from someone, or advice about men, or advice about anything, for that matter, it wouldn’t be from this guy. Still, Cosmo asked Cook if he would share “7 Things Men Wish Women Knew.” After the jump, let’s explore seven things women wish men knew. Keep reading »
About a month ago I was waiting in line at the grocery store when I spotted a hot guy standing behind me. I made a joke about how slow the line was going. He laughed. I smiled. And off we were. After we had both checked out, he continued to walk with me to the subway. He even offered to carry my bags. When we got to my destination, I shook his hand. “I’m glad we got stuck in line together.” Keep reading »
Thanksgiving is one of those great holidays that are less about commercialism and more about togetherness (and food, of course). Unfortunately, all that togetherness can be a little stressful for couples — especially if it includes a hectic travel schedule and/or time with one or both sets of families.

After two decades of service, the six-foot-high, 10-foot-wide mirror covering our living room wall started falling down on Thanksgiving Day. It came with the house, a colonial in Whitestone, Queens, which my parents bought when I was born. I was 23 and about to drive to LaGuardia Airport to pick up Tim, my soldier boyfriend of two years. He was spending the holiday with me after being stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia, for the past three months.
I was in my attic bedroom putting on my “Welcome Home” outfit — black stockings, boots, a checkered skirt, and a fitted black sweater — when I heard Mom scream. I took the steps two at a time to find her and my 18-year-old brother holding the mirror up, their four hands, strained faces, and bodies looking longer in their slanted reflections. Keep reading »
Every week, about 20 percent of the letters I receive fall into a category Dan Savage would call “DTMFA.” As you might imagine, it gets a little tiresome to try to answer each of these letters, but I can’t help feel a little guilty when I simply ignore them. After all, these are people who are desperate for someone to tell them what they already know they need to do. So, I’m going to try out a new feature called “Move On Already!” or “MOA!” for short (because “DTMFA” was already taken), for which a three-word response (move on already!) is all that’s really necessary for the letters posted. As always, you are more than welcome to leave your own advice in the comments, and feel free to let me know what you think of this particular feature. If it works, I’ll make it a bi-weekly regular. After the jump, five people who need to MOA! Keep reading »
