What’s Your Definition Of Dating?

I was on the phone with the guy I had gone on a handful of dates with. We were discussing whether or not we would continue “dating.”

“I want to be able to spend the night and I want you to come to my neighborhood once,” I explained.

“I don’t want to have this conversation,” he said with conviction. “This conversation is about compromise. And compromise is a thing that people in relationships do.” Keep reading »

Urban Dictionary Will Define You

Have you ever looked your name up on Urban Dictionary? Apparently it is the new thing to do and being the follower that I am, I did it. Unlike most name definitions (supposedly, the Germanic origin of my name means “work”), Urban Dictionary’s definitions seem to be far more accurate!

Amelia: A crazy, awesome, loud, lovable girl. Impossible not to be smiling when around her. She lights up the entire room when she comes in. The bestest friend you will ever have. “Amelia did a crazy dance move that only she can pull off!”

The secondary definition is slightly less flattering.

To have sex with blondes; To perform the act of sexual bondage in a way in which some one has a longer erection because of the tightness of the bondage equipment.

Whatever. Try it yourself! [Urban Dictionary]

Death To This Debate: What Makes A Person A Slut?

One of my most shameful moments as a person was in the fourth grade. I was fairly invisible within my class, but had a desperate desire to be liked. There was another girl in my class who also was not popular and was picked on fairly often for being a little grubby. One day, in what I guess was an attempt to appear cool and funny to my classmates, I picked on her too. I told her she was dirty and that she reminded me of used toilet paper, whatever that means. Then I told her she was a slut. She cried. I still wasn’t popular after that, so the point was lost, and I’ve clearly spent the last 18 years thinking about how mean I was to her. But the thing is, I had no idea what the word “slut” even meant, I just knew it was a bad thing to call a girl. I still don’t know what a slut is and that’s because I don’t think there’s any definition that everyone can agree on. The debate over what makes a person a “slut” is so…ridiculous. Can’t we just retire it already?

Quote Of The Day: Mindy Kaling On “Smart”, Hot Women

“If you defend a girl as ‘really smart when you get to know her,’ she is dumb. What you mean is, she’s ‘really smart for a smokin’-hot girl who is stupid.’” — The Office‘s Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor) in Esquire‘s “Ten Things You Don’t Know About Women” Keep reading »

Barsexual: Our New Favorite Word

Right now, many American co-eds are having new experiences on Spring Break! From visiting foreign countries to getting baby’s first bikini wax, higher education is all about broadening your horizons. Although LUG (Lesbian Until Graduation) is already in the Urban Dictionary, there’s a new online reference for women who just play gay. We all know sexuality is a spectrum, but on the 1-10 scale, the newly defined barsexual is in the negative numbers. She licks other girls just to make men drool, or, as Urban Dictionary puts it, “A BARSEXUAL girl only kisses them in places that charge a cover.” Oh, snap! Keep reading »
