Dater X: V-Day & The L-Word

By: Dater X 2.0 / February 11, 2015

Valentine’s Day is juuuuust around the bend, and in unusual circumstances for me, I can actually celebrate it this year with, GASP,  a man.

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / February 11, 2015

There are plenty of really, truly bad relationships in pop culture (Christian and Ana, anyone? Romeo and Juliet?), and even the sort of mediocre relationships in pop culture would be considered totally melodramatic and probably borderline unhealthy if you took them out of fiction and put them in real life. But there are a few… More »


Loveflutter’s #AntiSelfieDay Is A Shallow, Cynical Branding Campaign

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / February 10, 2015

Apparently the people who run the dating app Loveflutter are gluttons for punishment[/members], because they tweeted their new social media campaign at me. I’m sure I’m on their list of people to tweet social media campaigns at because of this post I did about their brown bag speed-dating events (I laughed out loud reading it… More »

By: Megan Reynolds / February 10, 2015

10 Reasons Most “Bachelor” Relationships Don’t Work Out

By: YourTango.com / February 9, 2015

I’ve been watching “The Bachelor” since middle school. Yeah, it’s been on for that long, and I remember watching the first “Bachelor” couple in history say “I do.” Those two were Trista and Ryan. They are still together eight years later, however, “The Bachelor” was a little bit different then. It was much less dramatic and a lot… More »

Make It Stop: “My Boyfriend Keeps Sabotaging My Diet!”

By: Anna Goldfarb / February 6, 2015

I’m trying to lose weight, but my boyfriend, who I’ll call Joey, keeps sabotaging me. Like, if I want a side salad, he’ll talk me into ordering the French fries as a reward because I’ve been so good with my diet all week. Or he’ll stock his freezer full of… More »


Mommie Dearest: I’m A Parent With Postpartum Anxiety

By: Avital Norman Nathman / February 6, 2015

When it started, I thought it was just a stomach thing. I had probably unwittingly eaten some dairy, my usual digestive foe. But the mild nausea showed no signs of letting up. Two weeks, then three.

Want To Feel Truly Happy? Then Stop Using These 2 Words ASAP

By: YourTango.com / February 5, 2015

These two simple little words steal your joy fast (and, sometimes, steal it forever). When I was a little girl my mother never ate peaches.

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / February 4, 2015

Have you ever been on the receiving end of an awkward office crush?
