10 Signs It’s Time To Get Over A Breakup And Move On

If I could have all the months — nay, years — back that I spent wallowing over a breakup, I’d have enough time to travel around the world twice, become fluent in French, and cook all the recipes in all the cookbooks on my shelf. And I have a feeling I’m not alone. After all,…

25 Signs You’re Not Actually Dating

Remember when you were in high school and college and dating really just meant “hanging out”? Once you reach a certain age — ahem, 21, when you can legally go out to a restaurant and order a bottle of wine — the definition of dating becomes much, much simpler. In order to be dating someone,…

15 Things That Suck More Than Going To The Gynecologist

This week marks National Women’s Health Week here in the U.S., which conveniently comes just in time for my annual pelvic exam. If, like me, you’ve been putting off making an appointment to see your gynecologist (I’m long overdue to see my dentist, too, shh!), I thought I’d run a follow-up list to this post

20 Cheap (Or Free!) Things That Make Me Happy

Wow, I don’t know about you all, but this current mercury retrograde has been kicking my butt! There was that whole week of jury duty and then needing a couple days to get back in the swing of things here at work (and boy, some of you really let me know I wasn’t on my…

The 8 Most Empowering Experiences Of My Life

The other day, Wendy wrote a list of the different things that make a woman feel beautiful, outside of hearing the words from a man. I noticed that many of the items on the list were experiences — successfully cooking a great recipe, doing yoga, etc. — and it got me thinking about some of…

30 Things That Make A Woman Feel Beautiful

Look, I’m not going to deny how great it can feel when a man tells a woman she’s beautiful (or any word that’s like “beautiful,” for that matter) — especially if it’s someone she’s equally attracted to/interested in/likes/loves/respects/cares for. As for being told her body’s hot by someone she’s just met? Well, let’s just say…

15 Ways To Get Out Of Jury Duty

I’m back from a week of jury duty! Did you guys miss me? What do you mean you didn’t notice I was gone? I’m heartbroken. Anyway, I never thought I’d be so glad to be back to work on a Monday morning, but after a week at the courthouse, where I couldn’t so much a…

The 10 Things I Want In A Man

The other day I was joking with my friend about what qualities we want in a potential significant other and how people are prone to calling us “picky.” I was like, “As if a six-foot liberal Rhodes Scholar with a year-round tan and desire for two kids, who also happens to own a peony farm…

We’ve been around the block a time or two, and in our travels — making short little overnight pit stops — we’ve gleaned some extremely valuable information about the opposite sex. Here are 10 things we’ve learned about men from having one-night-stands.

Before I Die I Want To …

Before I die I want to” is a cool web project that invites participants to send in Polaroid snapshots of themselves saying one thing they want to do before they die. The project aims to explore the questions about mortality awareness, self-motivation, and what values different societies hold important. The creators hope the project “will…

30 Things I Love About Myself

This morning I woke up and the sun was shining. Lucca (that’s my dog) was lying on her back, paws straight up in the air, when she rolled over, yawned, and said to me, in her puppy way, “Moms” — she pluralizes things a lot — “I love you. You’re awesome.” And she’s right. I…

20 Things You’re Never Too Old For

I know, The Frisky has spent a little bit of time listing what you should quit doing before turning a certain age and such behavior becomes kind of, well, inappropriate. Certainly some of these things are relative — many of you insist you will call your father “Daddy” forever, and your persistence has won my…

20 More Things To Stop Feeling Guilty About

Last week I wrote a list on 20 things we should stop feeling guilty about. I hadn’t realized just how much there was that we women fret over — readers made so many great suggestions for other things we need to let go of and I thought of quite a few more since last week…

12 Signs It’s Time To Dump Your Friend

Last week I wrote a post called “15 Signs It’s Time To Break Up,” which got some great comments, including one from Humble Bee, who said, “How about a list about breaking up with a friend? Sometimes its really obvious that they aren’t looking for your best interest, but we keep ignoring it just because…

20 Things To Stop Feeling Guilty About

We women are so hard on ourselves, aren’t we? From stressing over whether we inadvertently said something that might have offended someone at the dinner party we went to last weekend, to worrying about gaining a few pounds over vacation, we find way too many things to feel guilty about. So how about a permissio…

30 Things Every Man Should Have By 30

Last week after I wrote about 30 things every woman should quit doing by 30, our friends at Crushable wrote a great response post on 30 things every man should quit doing by 30. It suddenly occurred to me: we’ve been letting men off the hook for too long! We’ve had all these posts about…

30 Things Every Woman Should Quit Doing By 30

Here on The Frisky we’ve talked a lot about things every woman should do — or, at least know how to do — by the time she turns 30, but until now we haven’t focused too much on the no-nos for women after 30. After the jump, 30 things every women should stop doing once…

25 Guys Who Are Hot, But We Don’t Know Why

Do you rock at trivia? Listen to the music on your iPod with big, “Natalie Portman in ‘Garden State'” headphones? Have a slight lisp? Guess what? Guys — or at least the guys at Asylum — find those qualities hot. We appreciate that they took the time to ruminate on these oh-so randomly inexplicable sexy…

You May Be A Female Player If …

My boy bestie, our own Mind of Man John DeVore, wrote a hilarious piece for GuySpeak.com called “You Might Be A Player If …” directed at dudes. Like:You might be a player if … you own as much leather as you do denim. And you wear your sunglasses on your head like a tiara.
