Dating Don’ts: 5 Alternatives To Sending An Angry, Post-Breakup Email

Breakups are brutal, and we rarely end a relationship with all of our feelings, regrets and issues off our chest. Instead, we're left with a tornado of confusing emotions accumulating debris inside of us, potentially setting off some really bad decision-making. The post-breakup email would be at the top of that list. It’s totally understandable…

5 Tips For Avoiding Dating Burnout

"I'm just not going to date for awhile," is a frequent refrain I hear from my clients. There's often a lack of enthusiasm and resolve in the delivery, signaling ambivalence.

The Main Difference Between Men And Women In Relationships

There are many differences between men and women, both in the way we’re designed physically and the way we process things emotionally.

Dating Don’ts: 13 Types Of Texters To Be Wary Of

As if dating wasn’t hard enough - you throw in a portable, typed-word machine and suddenly it’s pandemonium. Tones, intentions, invitations all get jumbled in this lawless land of shorthand communication.

Dads Raising Daughters: Wisdom On Love, Dating & (Some Day!) Sex

Last year for Father's Day, we ran a series of interviews with real-life dads divulging their wisdom on raising independent, vibrant girls. Dads Raising Daughters turned out really lovely, so I'm making a fledgling Frisky tradition of it!

Dating Don’ts: 4 Things You Shouldn’t Do If You Find Yourself Dating A Celebrity

Navigating the courtship process with someone famous is nothing like the movie "Win A Date With Tad Hamilton." Josh Duhamel and Kate Bosworth made it look easy and adorable. It’s not.

You Need To Read Stevie Nicks’ Sage Wisdom Of The Single Lady

"Most women would not be happy being me. People say, ‘But you’re alone.’ But I don’t feel alone. I feel very un-alone. I feel very sparkly and excited about everything.

Dating Don’ts: How Not To Be A Crappy Wedding Date

It just creeps right up every year. It's Valentine's Day and then you sneeze and out comes WEDDING SEASON. I'm attending four (possibly five) this year. That's a lot of hotel room minibars to resist, a lot of champy to consume without getting too tipsy, a lot of my signature Elaine Benes style dance move…

Dating Don’ts: 5 Tips For The Highly Allergic Dater

Spring is in the air – and in your nose. You sneeze, ooze, and actively resist the urge to claw your itching eyes out. That is, if you’re allergic like me. I cope with an assortment of antihistamines and avoidance tactics: yes, I’m totally fine NOT going outside today, or for the next three weeks!

Dating Don’ts: 6 Harsh Online Dating Realities That You Should Be Aware Of

My girlfriend and I met on eHarmony, so I’ll be the first to acknowledge that online dating can absolutely be a worthwhile experience. Still, it was far from a smooth journey.

10 Things Guys Shouldn’t Do On The First Date

They don’t say, “First impressions are the best impressions,” for nothing. It’s very true! How a person behaves with us the first time we meet them definitely sets the tone for our future interactions, especially if it’s a first date. I feel like I am always being bombarded with magazine articles about what women shouldn’t…

6 Reasons Women Assume You’re Gay

Back in the days when men were “men” and Rock Hudson was a paragon of heterosexuality, life was simpler for straight guys. Today, with gender roles in a state of flux and traditional ideas about masculinity turned upside-down, things are a lot more confusing, especially for women.

Are You Dating A Cat Or A Dog?

A lot of people think of acts of romance as being gender-specific. Men should bring home bouquets of long-stemmed roses and women should wear naughty lingerie to keep the fire burning in their relationships. The problem with this kind of thinking is that it perpetuates false gender roles and actually misleads people into following a…

Dating Don’ts: 12 Things To Know About Dating A Musician

A few years ago, I had to swear off dating musicians. I'd been dating them since high school, both casual guitar-noodlers and career musicians who had songs on CW shows and their faces on T-shirts.

Dating Don’ts: The Case For Doing Nothing

I have something I need to get off my chest. I'm experiencing pangs of guilt about writing about dating when I'm no longer doing it.

How To Date A Travel Writer

A few weeks into my relationship with “Ben,” I left town for about two months. The week after we moved in together, I left again. Every couple comes into a relationship with baggage, but mine was a little more literal. I’m a travel writer, and my job sends me on the road regularly. As much…
