Dater X: Don’t Block The Box

Do you ever feel like everyone’s out to get you?  This week has been like that, at least when it comes to my dating life.  The city has been nothing but one big cockblock.  Er, clitblock.

First things first: I haven’t seen Israeli Tinder Guy again.  We exchanged a few friendly texts, mostly…

Texts With My Straight Single Dude BFF: On Fuck Buddies & Being Ready

A rambling workday exchange about when it’s the right time to end things with a fuck buddy, especially if they’re more into you than you’re into them.

Make It Stop: “My (Taken) Guy Friend Keeps Hinting We Should Hook Up”

I’ve gotten myself into a miserable situation with a good friend, who I’ll call Dave. We’ve known each other since we were kids and as we’ve gotten older, we’ve become close. I’ve always felt there was something more to us, but was never really sure, so I chalked it up to being bored with the…

7 Signs It’s Time To Turn Your Friend With Benefits Into Just A Friend

We’ve all been there: You meet someone where the chemistry is so on point that you can’t seem to resist getting into the tangled web that is friends with benefits. You know s/he’s wrong for you and you both know that a relationship is not going to be your happy ending. In fact, you may…

8 Times Friends With Benefits Actually Works

“Friends with benefits” might be one of the most complicated relationships you could possibly get yourself into. This kind of relationship typically starts off really fun and convenient (a best friend who you can make out with? SCORE!) but almost always, someone ends up getting feelings which results in ruining the friendship all together. Buzz kill.

But FWB…

Dater X: I Think I’m Ready For A Friend With Benefits

I’ve had a high sex drive since I was a teenager. Over the last 14 years, whether single or coupled up, I’ve been fortunate enough to never really go ‘sexless.’ In relationships— whether they last three months or three years— my libido generally maintains the momentum of that of the Energizer Bunny. I certainly don’t…

Dating Don’ts: Is It A Booty Call Or Nah?

We’ve all been there. Someone you were hot and heavy with will suddenly disappear, as if wiped from this earth, only to reappear in the form of a typo-laden text message one night while you’re doing a face mask in your sweatpants. Like that mosquito that you try endlessly to kill before going to sleep,…

Dating Don’ts: 5 Possible Outcomes Of Defining The Relationship

Nobody handles The Talk very well. Usually, it’s a stilted affair, capable of rendering even the most confidently grown to their pre-teen self, stuttering and drawing circles in the condensation left by their wineglass, assiduously avoiding eye contact. Defining the relationship, or DTR, if you’re of the ilk that favors cutesy acronyms, is a necessary…

Funny Girl Sex Guide: 6 Rules For A Successful F**k Buddy Relationship

In my two-part travel sex episode of Funny Girl Sex Guide, I rather cynically declared that the entire male population of New York City is unfuckable. That, I am willing to admit, was a bit of an exaggeration. Or at least I hope that it is, because I’ve decided that it’s impractical and silly to…

5 Things Everyone Needs To Demand From Their Casual Hookup

There he is. Your eyes meet. The butterflies in your stomach are loud enough for the entire room to hear. Your palms moisten and your palpitating heart seems to want to beat out of your chest. You muster up the courage to walk to him, but someone has you beat.

Think quick. You…

Friends With Benefits Are The Best At Using Condoms

Friends with benefits often get a bum rap. But I am happy to report that they are acing it in the condom department. An online survey, the results of which were published in the Journal of Sex Research, found that FWBs are the most likely to use condoms during sex. Of the 376 mostly twentysomething…

What Would’ve Happened If These Rom-Com Heroines Had Chosen Themselves Instead Of Prince Charming

Having been a fan of “Breaking Upwards,” the heartbreaking debut film from co-writers/co-stars/cohabitators Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones, I couldn’t wait to see the couple’s follow up, “Lola Versus.” Starring mumblecore goddess Greta Gerwig, “Lola Versus” tells the story of a woman on the verge of 30 who’s left understandibly devastated after her fiance dumps her three weeks before…

6 Things You Should Know About Having A Substitute Girlfriend Or Boyfriend

You call yourselves “just friends,” but you know as well as everyone else does that you’re more than that. You know where he is when he’s not with you. You spend your weekends together. You travel together. You go to Ikea together. You say “we” a lot, and all of your other friends know who…

6 Rules To Follow For A Successful “Friends With Benefits” Relationship

Friends with benefits. F**k buddies. It’s a concept I’ve never really been able to get behind, something I thought never really worked. Someone always develops feelings for the other, right? Someone always ends up getting hurt. But! I think I was wrong. Having the perfect f**k buddy relationship may be difficult, but it is not…

Can’t “Friends With Benefits” Get Some Respect?

Single. In a relationship. Engaged. Married. “It’s complicated.” When it comes to declaring your relationship status on social networking sites, there always a handful of options, but the latter is the only one that hints to a situation that strays from traditional coupling up. How unfair. Shouldn’t, say, “Friends With Benefits” be an option?
