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 »
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]

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?

“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 »
Right now, many American co-eds are having new experiences on Spring Break! From visiting foreign countries to getting babyâ€™s first bikini wax, higher education is all about broadening your horizons. Although LUG (Lesbian Until Graduation) is already in the Urban Dictionary, thereâ€™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, â€œA BARSEXUAL girl only kisses them in places that charge a cover.â€ Oh, snap! Keep reading »
