We’re really, really happy these relationships are over. Your turn to share! Keep reading »
This past weekend, my boyfriend and I took a long weekend together to get a bit of a vacation and do the tourist thing. While taking a stroll, we stopped at a corny street vendor. I squealed with surprise while browsing a rack of name bracelets—the seller happened to have both of our fairly obscure names. In a cute and slightly jokey move, we bought both of the unisex leather styles. I put the one with his name on my wrist, and him vice-versa. Of course, I show this to my girlfriends and they go, “Awww.” His friends catch him with the accessory, and he gets put through the mill of dude shame. Yet, somehow, we’re both wearing our bracelets, now normal outfit staples.
Do you think getting matchy-matchy jewelry with your guy is too much? (Maybe you’re of the school that prohibits all man jewelry, no matter how masculine?) Or is a cute and kitschy way to express your love? Sound off in the comments below! Keep reading »
Having a roommate can be a godsend if you want to live in an expensive city. But a roommate can also be a major annoyance in your life, especially if she or he has a habit of bringing home late night lovers or giving their partners all-access passes to your apartment.

This may make all of the serial daters out there feel a little bit better. Or, ahem, make me feel better. A new survey done in the U.K. found that the average woman goes on about 24 dates before she finds a keeper. And to add a little more solace—seven percent of the more than 2,000 women polled went on between 41 and 60 dates before finding someone special and one percent went on a staggering 61 to 80 dates before finding Prince Charming. Geez, no wonder we get so sick and tired of dating. That’s a lot frogs. Keep reading »
We’re back again for another edition of GuySpeak/GirlSpeak, where we take a close look at the advice given by guys to girls over at GuySpeak, throw in our own two vagina-possessing cents, and then have you weigh in. This week’s scintillating question: Can you turn a booty call into a boyfriend?
This guy uses me as a booty call, but I really like him, so whenever he calls I go meet him. Should I play hard to get and stop answering his calls? He always avoids my questions about a relationship.
Read on for our guy vs. girl advice … Keep reading »
Consider the following: you’ve started dating a new guy, and things have progressed to the point where you’re beginning to have sleepovers. Naturally, one of two things happens then. You can either sleep or you can’t.
So, do you believe that how you sleep with (and real sleep, not sexytimes) a new boyfriend is an indicator of compatibility and long-term potential? Is it good if you can sleep like logs together on your first night? Does restless slumber mean you’re uncomfortable? Or does no sleep, because you can’t keep your hands off each and he’s occupying lovely thoughts in your head, point to passion? (Although, we imagine, this could lead to burnout.)
Do you have beliefs about bedtime compatibility? Duke it out in the comments below. Keep reading »
We all tell little white lies. The world would stop turning and erupt in bloodshed if we said what we really thought all the time. I have been thinking, however, that while I have to constantly change things up with women, I can keep on telling different guys the same altered-truths because their questions never change. Maybe women are more creative with our insecurities or our insecurities are more fluid and likely to change with time. Who knows why, ’tis an unsolved mystery, but until I find my channel my inner Agatha Christie, here are the top five things women tell men they don’t mind, but we really do. Keep reading »
