30 Things Better Than Having A Boyfriend

With the holidays and proposal season in full swing, there seems to be an unavoidable sense of romance in the air.

Here’s What Everyone’s Really Thinking When You Bring A New Boyfriend Home For The Holidays

Here's What Everyone's Really Thinking When You Bring A New Boyfriend Home For The Holidays
So Spot On It's Scary.

Ahh, the holidays. It’s a time for extreme awkwardness, forced social interaction and perpetual lies regarding the status of your not-very-exciting life. But perhaps the most uncomfortable encounter of all is when your new boyfriend meets your parents for the first time. Will Mom approve? Will Dad make some kind of unnecessary comment about his gun collection? Will your boyfriend fuck it all up by mentioning his band? Before you make the introduction, watch this video to prepare yourself for what everyone will be thinking during the process, and strategize accordingly. [Glamour]

15 Signs Your Man Is Insecure

15 Signs Your Man Is Insecure

He picks you up, presents you with roses, opens your door, takes you to an elegant restaurant, and endlessly compliments you throughout the night. He repeatedly tells you, his voice laced with incredulous wonder, that he can’t believe you actually agreed to go out with him since you are so far out of his league. He treats you like a princess and let’s face it, it’s flattering. It’s a refreshing change to feel so appreciated, especially if you’ve dated a few self-absorbed, insensitive jerks in the past. You begin to think that maybe he’s “the one.” But then things head south. His sweet attentiveness turns to overwhelming obsession. It no longer feels like he treasures and cherishes you; it feels like overbearing possessiveness. Suddenly it seems to take all your energy to assure (and reassure and reassure again) your man that you love him. It’s sucking the life out of you. Read more on Your Tango…

The 6 Imaginary Boyfriends You Need

The 6 Imaginary Boyfriends You Need

Being single is far superior to being tied down to some lovable douche who makes you ditch girls’ nights for private pizza parties. While you could argue that being Facebook official is useful for holiday parties, heavy lifting, and little spoon opportunities, boyfriends are really more trouble than they’re worth. In fact, you’d be better off investing in a puppy, instead. All of the cuddles, and 100% less of the pressure to feign interest in sports. The truth is, boyfriends would be incredibly useful if you could exchange them (along with your outfits) for different parties and seasons. In this beautiful imaginary world (where chocolate has no calories and Lilly Pulitzer is always free), every occasion would call for a new boy toy custom made for the event.

We have all been there. A casual happy hour turns into a dark, drunken blur where one can’t remember how many or what type of alcohol has been consumed. We all pay the price. But no one is more predictable than the Drunk Boyfriend. The men in our lives who behave so uniquely in our daily lives turn into the same man when wasted.

Girl Talk: On Lying About Having A Boyfriend

Two days ago, I lied about having a boyfriend. I don’t do this, ever. This is one of those things I do not like to do. I do not want to feel like I have to lie about having a boyfriend to get out of an uncomfortable situation. Before I get to this story, here is an example of a situation in which I could have lied about having a boyfriend but I didn’t.

I was in Las Vegas in May, walking around with some of my dearest blogger friends, when we were approached by two men. One guy went right up to a friend of mine; the other went to me. This man stopped me and said, “Can I ask you three questions and you answer honestly?”

“Does this one count?” I deadpanned. He paused. He didn’t get it. So he asked again, ”Can I ask you three questions and you answer honestly?” Keep reading »
