Ask The Astrosexologist: How Can I Tell If An Aries Is Lying?

"How do I tell if an Aries man is lying? Are there any telltale signs? Do they lie? Are they good at it? I have a very strong suspicion that my Aries ex was cheating on me during our relationship and that he is currently with the woman he may have cheated on me with.

The Monogamist: When To Reveal Your Crazy Side

A friend call me the other day. She was struggling to figure out what was going on with her relationship of a month. He'd do sweet things, like post photos of the two of them on Facebook. Then he'd write curt responses to her e-mails. Normally, she's extremely self-confident, self-assured, and successful in life. It…

Dealbreaker: Dating Below Your Class

There was a banging at the door as Brian* flushed the toilet. I was sitting on the couch of his mother’s townhouse, where he lived with her and his half-brother. Brian emerged from the bathroom and opened the front door to reveal a mangy-looking man walking away from the stoop. “I’m calling the police!” Brian’…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Do Guys Like To Be Pursued Or Not?

Last night's episode of "Gossip Girl" was awesomely irritating. After pursuing Blair for ages, Chuck finally got her exactly where he wanted her -- about to give up some lovin' -- but then turned the tables on her instead. It seems that Chuck wants to be chased, instead of the other way around. Say what?

Dealbreaker: The Lightweight

The Brit was someone I can describe only as Lord Marcus on "Gossip Girl." Well, except for the title and the vast family riches. Nine years older than me, the Brit was a U.K. transplant in the banking industry and a sweet, sweet man. Not only did he own a house across the pond, but…

Ask The Astrosexologist: My Pisces Man Is A Prude!

I have been dating a Pisces for four months and we haven't had sex. He says he is going through a spiritual transformation, which includes no sex. I am climbing up the walls! I know he keeps a dream journal and in it he writes explicit dreams about ME. I do feel we connect and…

Going The Distance: Making The Move

Until a few years ago, I never would have considered a long distance relationship a realistic option for myself. I once dated a guy who lived on the other side of the city and that relationship was challenging enough, though to be fair, our problems probably had more to do with him being a douche…

Dealbreaker: He Ordered The Cheeseplate

I can learn more about a man at dessert than any other time. When it comes down to it, isn’t dessert the reason for a date? Witty conversation and sex appeal aside, it’s dessert that seals the deal. Lest I sound shallow, I can authenticate the efficacy of this dessert-litmus test. I can predict —…

Going The Distance: The Set-Up

It was early spring, late afternoon, a couple of years ago and I was having beers and burgers with some girlfriends. It was warm enough that we sat on the patio outside where we ate and drank and talked about boys. I was the youngest in the group — still a few months shy of…

Gmail To Prevent Drunk Messaging (Well, On The Weekends, At Least)

We’ve all been there, we’ve had a bit too much to drink — more than some of us would care to admit — and suddenly, calling, texting, or emailing an old flame seems like the best. Idea. Ever!! You know it never goes well and the humiliation the next morning is worse than the raging…

NonSociety blogger and Time Out New York columnist Julia Allison posed a question in her site the other day -- What is a "normal" length of time to wait before having sex with a new partner? -- and proposed an answer: My methodology (for women, of course): if you think you’ve waited long…

Dealbreaker: Musicians/Rock Stars/Singer-Songwriters

Dudes in bands: They’re creative, laid back, they’re hot, they have great music collections, they’re sensitive, and very often, they’re funny without being as damaged as comedians. What’s not to like? Let’s discuss. There was the Luke Skywalker look-alike who drummed for so many bands I couldn’t keep track of them all. (Although, as a…

Handle This: Bring A Shy Guy Out Of His Shell

Whether it’s sitting in silence during dinner or enduring the long, uncomfortable pauses when he’s out with you and your friends, dating a shy guy can create some incredibly frustrating situations. What you might not realize, however, is that inspiring an introverted date to open up is surprisingly simple. “With a shy guy, you have…

A Summer Fling: Will It Last Or Fade Along With Your Tan?

While everyone on "Gossip Girl" is complaining of the intense heat, mid-blackout, nary a hair out of place, the rest of us know that though humidity is sticking it out, summer has come to an end. (Unless you are very, very wealthy and you can find summer any time of year.) As Wall Street falter…

Real Chick Lit: How To Date Like A Rock Star

Fantasize about dating a rock star? Who doesn’t? They’re sexy, mysterious, oh-so-dangerous, and, apparently, insanely wild in bed. If you wanna make like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Liv Tyler, or Cameron Diaz, but you're all hung up on your lack of a Hollywood pedigree, mega-wattage celebrity, or rock star funds, fret no longer, my sister.

The Frisky TV: What’s The Most Irritating Thing A Person Can Do On The First Date?

Personally, I think the most annoying thing a person can do on the first date is talk about money. I also think that's the most annoying thing a person can do on the 59th date, but that's just me. We asked tons of peeps on the street for the most annoying thing they've encountered o…

Location, Location, Location: Hooking Up In The Big Apple

As I've come to learn, dating in New York City isn't...well...dating. At least what you think of traditionally in terms of the word. There isn't a whole lot of that good, wholesome stuff you see on TV or in the movies. Oftentimes, he doesn't call and ask to take you out to dinner, nor…
