Be My Boyfriend: Jon Boyer, The Hunky Cop Who Rescues Cats

Dear Officer Boyer,

May I call you Jon, I mean, unless we’re role-playing or something? Awesome. Jon, where have you been all my life? Or, rather, where have I been that I’m just learning about you now? I’m just one of many women who have been wooed by your reputation for rescuing and adopting the four-legged creatures that you encounter in the line of duty. Last May, a picture of you cuddling a kitten you had rescued and decided to adopt was posted on the Facebook page for a local animal shelter in Baltimore, where you live and serve. Keen-eyed women immediately noticed your rugged good looks and inquired about your relationship status — single after a recent breakup, woohoo! — but you clearly had more important things than dating on your mind. Like starring in an anti-animal abuse campaign called “Show Your Soft Side,” which got you even more attention from women. And being declared one of 2013′s Hottest Cat Guys! Hey, brawny dudes with hearts of gold are hard to come by these days! All the attention led you to start your own fan page, I Love Jon Boyer, but, true to your kindhearted nature, this isn’t a vanity project. I love the fact that you post listings for animals that need to be adopted on your page. Using your good looks to do good deeds just makes you even hotter, Jon. Keep reading »

15 Things That Deserve A Second Chance (And 10 Things That Don’t)

15 Things That Deserve A Second Chance (And 10 Things That Don't)

We’ve been thinking a lot about second chances lately: when to give them, who to give them to, and how they’re earned. Second chances are complicated, because we all want to be one of those magnanimous, forgiving souls who write inspiring essays for O magazine, but at the same time, no one wants to be a gullible doormat. There’s a balance between forgiveness and foolishness; the trick is learning to walk the tight rope. Sometimes second chances are in order, and sometimes, in the cases of hipster bars or douche-y exes, it’s best to just cut your losses and move on. Here are 15 things that (almost) always deserve a second chance, and 10 things that strike out after one. Keep reading »

Dating-Don'ts-How-The-Meet-Cute-Is-Ruining-Your-Love-Life

Let me set the scene for you. One day you’re at the grocery store, dutifully squeezing all the avocados until you find the ripest ones, then moving them to your basket. You have your headphones in, you’re concentrating very intently on the task at hand, and you’re really not thinking about anything other than the guacamole you’re going to consume while watching “True Detective.” As you continue your thorough work of squeezing and replacing the avocados, your hand touches something warm, something tangible, something human — the calloused, strong hand of your dream man, a tall man-bun sporting, flannel wearing carpenter, a Ryan Gosling in “The Notebook” meets Jared Leto’s hair with a dash of McConaughey’s Foghorn Leghorn swagger. [Dream man. -- Amelia] You drop his hand, you gasp, he smiles. Numbers are exchanged. Drinks are had. You share this improbably cute story with everyone you meet, and are greeted with a variety of emotions ranging from derision to laughter to misty-eyed joy. You marry under a canopy of Etsy-sourced mason jar tea light holders and gingham and drive off in an old convertible, the “Just Married” sign bouncing against the bumper. That’s your life under the spell of the meet-cute. Keep reading »

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Will Left Out His Two Daughters

  • Philip Seymour Hoffman’s will has been filed and he left the bulk if his money to his longtime partner, Mimi O’Donnell, the mother of his three children and the executrix of his estate. The will was written before his two youngest daughters were born, however, so it only establishes a trust in the name of his son Cooper, who is now 10. (Cooper will inherit half his trust at 25 and the rest at 30.) PSH’s will also stipulated that he wants Cooper to be raised in either Manhattan, Chicago or San Francisco, “so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer.” Hopefully as the executrix of his will, O’Donnell can distribute the late actor’s finances more equitably amongst all his children.

cleaning up

Whether your last relationship was a brief affair or years in the making, breakups are always tough to handle. For many of us, the five stages of grief include sulking, series binging on your favorite TV shows, drowning your sorrows with multiple pints of Ben & Jerry’s, and staunch avoidance. Still surrounded by mementos of your ex and your relationship, sometimes the easiest response to your emotional state is to sit on the couch and do nothing at all. That is, until your best friend comes over to deliver a much-needed pep talk and finds you buried beneath a pile of post-relationship clutter.

With a little push, you admit that it’s time to get organized and get on with your life. To help guide the process of cleaning up after the breakup, here are five simple tips for excising your ex and all his/her stuff from your home: Keep reading »

My Completely Serious 100-Point Boyfriend Checklist

My Completely Serious 100-Point Boyfriend Checklist

Earlier this morning, I learned that I only have 11 months and 29 days to find a boyfriend and convince him to marry me (or else!). With that in mind, I decided it was time to get serious, really serious, about what I’m looking for in a partner, that way I don’t spend next Valentine’s Day all alone, mourning the fact that my perfect marriage date has passed. So I made a checklist of all the qualities I’m looking for in a significant other. It’s pretty short. I’m sure I can find someone who fits all the criteria. Keep reading »
