Ever since I implored the fungus guy to be my boyfriend, I’ve been thinking about all the different types of scientists who would make excellent partners. I polled my biologist parents, my science-y friends, and the Frisky ladies to compile a list of the most desirable kinds of scientists, why we want to date them,… More »
When I look back at all the relationships that didn’t work out (that I so wanted to at the time), I realize that in every case, there were early warning signs that each guy gave me that could have given me some idea of the heartbreak I was about to experience if I had only been aware… More »

My whole dating strategy the past few years has been to act like a kid in a penny candy store. I’ve been bagging any man who looks tasty, just getting a couple bites, then moving on to the next flavor. They’ve all been sweet, but, frankly, I’m starting to get a toothache. Now that I’ve… More »
Rich Santos, Marie Claire’s male dating columnist, wants to know why women love jerks. (This question is the male equivalent of us wondering why men are so drawn to high-maintenance bitches.) To find out, I IM’d my friend Katrina*, who has dated more jerks than I’ve dated fixer-uppers (another common guy type women are drawn… More »
