Life After Dating: 7 Ways To Avoid Getting Sucked Into Your Partner’s Foul Mood

Life-After-Dating-Foul-Moods

So you’ve finally found The One (or at least The One For The Foreseeable Future) and you’ve committed to a serious relationship. Now what? In our weekly column, Life After Dating, women discuss the unique joys and challenges of coupledom.

When you’re alone, a bad mood is like an angry wave that takes you down. No matter how awful it feels in the moment, the damage it can do is limited because, for most part, you’re the only person in its path. When there’s another person around, a bad mood has the potential to pull both of you under water, and anyone who’s ever been sucked into a spiral of grumpiness with their partner knows that once you’ve been caught in the riptide, it’s nearly impossible to make your way back to shore. Luckily, there are some effective ways to deal with your partner’s moods. Hopefully, these emotional life rafts will let you maintain your sunny disposition, no matter how crabby your partner may be. In ideal cases, you might even be able to cheer them up. But don’t count on it — sometimes people just want to be mad, and that’s OK. As long as it’s only sometimes Keep reading »

To Google Or Not To Google: This Flowchart Answers The Eternal Question

It’s nice to finally have some assistance with the Should You Google dilemma.

And they’ve considered all the important things like, whether or not you intend to date the person, or how badly you want to feel about yourself. But they forgot to address the question of Googling yourself. The answer is always yes. No exceptions. So you know what other people see when they Google you. [The Date Report] Keep reading »

Valentine’s Day is a day for gigantic heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, expensive dinners, and crazy lingerie, but look beyond these grand gestures, and you’ll see there are tons of smaller, understated ways to show your love all year long. Here are 75 ideas… Keep reading »

Taylor Swift On Dating Drama: “If It’s A Game, You Need To Win”

“[When a guy is jerking you around y]ou don’t respond to any of his texts or calls until he does something desperate [like] shows up. Or he calls and leaves a voice mail. Something that makes it very clear to you that he’s interested. … I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it’s a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table.”

In the March issue of Glamour, Taylor Swift recommends the tried-and-true freeze-out. I’m not saying freezing out is a good thing, but it is effective, is it not? (And is it just  me or do we think she honed this technique on John Mayer?)

Glamour also asked the pop star “Is it too clingy and too insecure to say ‘I don’t like it when you don’t text me back right away’?” (Excuse me while I roll my eyes into the back of my head at the thought of more “women are clingy” bullshit.) Taylor actually had some pretty great advice for that one: Keep reading »

Dating-Don'ts--Yelp-Reviews-For-5-Popular,-Online-Dating-Sites

Choosing a restaurant to eat at is an easy, fun task. Say there’s a new Chinese-Cuban-Indonesian fusion place that opened up on your block. Maybe you want to go there one night, because you enjoy clever fusion and you’re hungry, but you’ve never been and don’t want to waste your money on some greasy noodles. In this instance, Yelp does the legwork for you, but there’s no such great rating system for online dating sites. Like any sensible human trying out a service, you’d definitely want to read reviews before you go there, right?  Look no further — we’ve done the dirty work of reviewing and ranking some choice online dating sites in a way you’ll understand — by comparing them to food.

Dating-Don'ts--On-Loving-Someone-With-Mental-Illness

For the majority of my last relationship, my partner was in the throes of a slowly unwinding nervous breakdown. He moved to New York at the same time I did, and lived for a brief period in a state of almost too much togetherness, bound because we loved each other, but also because we didn’t know what else to do. There is a strange thing that happens when you first move to a new city. Stripped free of your usual comforts, you cling readily and fiercely to whatever is available. For us, it was one another, and that felt fine to me, but less so to him. With the stress of living in a new city and delving into a new relationship, his anxiety and depression blossomed beyond the average quarter-life crisis into something much more serious.
