Girl Talk: The Cathartic Post-Breakup Haircut

I’ve been growing my hair out for 10 years, ever since I got a totally tragic close-crop days before graduation from high school. I had kind of low self-esteem and I was majorly obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow’s new short cut (you know the one — it closely resembled then boyfriend Brad Pitt’s hair too) –…

Slideshow: Celebrity Couples Who’ve Survived “The Break”

A “breakup” becomes just a “break” when the couple in question find their way back to each other after a necessary snippet of time apart. Being in the middle of a “break”/”breakup” myself, I’ve thought a lot about the different directions this could go — a full-on “breakup” where we’re totally over, no chance of…

When Blogs Cry: How To Breakup Online

A few weeks into dating him, when it wasn’t even clear that we were doing more than falling into bed and blogging the pillow talk the morning after, he texted me to ask, “We’re not secret right?”

The Breakup Diaries: Laughter Is The Best Medicine

This weekend, Anne Hathaway hosted “Saturday Night Live”. Her opening monologue was the funniest of the season, so far, as she poked fun at her breakup with Italian lothario/scammer Raffaello Follieri . The appearance not only made me like Hathaway more — she’s not the little priss from “The Princess Diaries” after all!

Dating Don’ts: Five Sure Ways NOT To Get Over Someone

I’m going to come right out and cop to this—I have been dumped more times than I can count. You’d think that after the 5,234th time, I’d be a tad more resilient, but nah. I have mourned certain dead relationships for longer than they went on in the first place and made an idiot of…

The 10 Strangest Things About Being Suddenly Single

So I’ve concluded week two of being “on a break” from my relationship. Newsflash: It still sucks. So far, I’ve progressed from the “so damned depressed I may never emerge from under the covers” stage to the “okay, this may actually be real” stage. I’ve got no idea what week three’s stage will be, but…

5 Ways To Seek Digital Revenge On An Ex

When a breakup goes bad (when don’t they?), it’s natural to feel angry. There are the obvious ways to express that emotion–egging his car, throwing his belongings out a window, changing your locks.

10 Movies, TV Shows, & Songs To Avoid During A Breakup

While I am on this “break” with the man friend (it remains unclear how long this break will last, FYI), I’ve sworn off certain movies, TV shows, and songs out of fear that they’ll make me depressed. A friend of mine went through a breakup recently and all she did was listen to Morrissey, but…

Breakups are bad enough without looking like a total fool in the aftermath. So, in a bold move of honesty, and to help save others in the same place, I’m going to admit that in the throes of some past breakups I’ve been a little bit intense. I’ve learned my lessons on what not to…

Text Messaging Ruins Jennifer Aniston’s Love Life Too

The text message: the worst invention to ever happen to dating. Well, it’s at least a close second to the chastity belt. This technological form of “communication” has already left a trail of tears amongst my gal pals. From late night sex solicitation to crazy guys who use the stilted language as a crutch for…

Us Weekly finally noticed what we pointed out two weeks ago — did Ali Lohan get a boob job? Then Lindsay Lohan responded on her MySpace blog saying, “…my mother taught us to appreciate what we have been given. Nor would she ever encourage, or allow a 14-year old child to alter her body. I…

Quote Of The Day: Alanis Morissette On Getting Over A Breakup

“No-strings relationships have helped cure me of love addiction. All my life I’ve been in long-term monogamous relationships. I had to break that pattern by not allowing myself to have a relationship for a year, stopping myself from committing to men. I haven’t been celibate. I’ve had lots of dates and lots of sex, but…
