Hitched 2.0: Help! I’m Getting Jaded

Three short months ago, I made a list of my bridal resolutions. First on that list: “Enjoy the rest of my planning.” Though I’d been a pretty relaxed bride up until that point, I could predict that would quickly change. With six months to go before the big day, I could feel the stress slowly…

Beyonce Hates Puns And Shitty Etsy Projects As Much As You Do

It's a sad day for all pun-loving Beyhive members. TMZ reports that Beyonce caught wind of the extremely popular "Feyoncé" merchandise that has been floating around Etsy, and had her lawyers send a strongly worded letter to the online retailer, requesting that the offending items be removed.

Girl Talk: I Announced My Engagement On Facebook

If you asked me two weeks ago, I would have told you that it's tacky to announce your engagement on Facebook. Facebook is where you discover drunken photos of last night’s debauchery. Where you read status updates on what Sam is having for lunch, the latest internet meme, or what John is listening to o…

Tony Romo Is Wrong About Wife’s Response To Marriage Proposal

Ever since he seemed to string ex-gf Jessica Simpson along, I've thought Dallas Cowboys player Tony Romo was kind of a schmoe.

Dear Wendy: “My Fiancé Has Cold Feet”

I am in my mid-twenties, currently engaged to and living with a man I love and respect very much. We got engaged after only nine months, and in total, we've only been together for a little over a year. His proposal was a total shock; I was perfectly happy to just be together without rushing…

Woman Tries To “Scare” Boyfriend Into Proposing

Some women really, really want to get engaged. Like Ana Perez! She was so desperate for her boyfriend to propose that she called the cops. See, it was New Year's Eve and she really wanted her man to drop down on one knee, so, to coerce him, I guess, she called the police and said…

Girl Talk: My “I Do” Nightmare

“Shut up, shut up, shut up!” I squealed, wondering inwardly why those were the only words I could muster. I placed my hands on Alex’s trembling shoulders and pulled him to his feet. “Of course,” I whispered, accepting his proposal. As we clung to one another, spectators faded away and elation swelled.
