7 Signs He’s Not Planning On Proposing

6 Terrible Reasons To Stay In A Relationship

Here are seven signs your boyfriend will not be popping the question anytime soon:

1. No introductions. He has not introduced you to hisfamily members and you have been dating for over a year.

2. No planning. He does not include you in his future plans (such as work, where he is moving, his travel).

3. Silence. He doesn’t talk about marriage or having a family at all. Read more…

3 Love Lessons From “Les Miserables”

I could gush all day about the 2012 film adaptation of “Les Misérables.” It’s everything a movie musical should be. The film itself is like a love letter from the director (Tom Hooper) to the musical’s original creators that says: Your work is perfection on stage. Let’s do it justice on film. And he succeeded.

But alas, this isn’t a review, so I’ll refrain from gushing and introduce instead three of the film’s most poignant love lessons:

1. Check yourself. The next time you get all self-pitying about your love life (Why hasn’t he texted me yet?!), consider a small dose of “Les Mis.” Once you hear Fantine’s (played by Anne Hathway) gutwrenching tale of lost love in the show-stopping ballad “I Dreamed A Dream,” your petty problems will fall instantly into perspective … that is, unless you also lost your job as an 1823 French factory worker when you were outed for having an illegitimate child and were subsequently relegated to a life of prostitution that consumed your soul and ultimately ended your life. No? Okay then. Read more…

Relationship In A Rut? There’s An App For That!

It’s no secret that after the initial “honeymoon” phase of a relationship, couples can get, well, lazy.

That laziness comes in many forms—lack of sexual intimacy, letting yourself go, absence of the small gestures of affection that were once so frequent and intoxicating—you get the picture. The holidays (and the return of New Year’s Resolutions) are typically a time of vowing to combat that complacency and ignite the spark that once burned so bright; but, as the story goes, resolutions are often broken well before the end of week one.

So, how can couples combat their relationship ruts this year? Well, there’s an app for that. Read more…

Meeting The Family Dos & Don’ts From Movies

The holidays mean lots of family time, and if you have a significant other, you could be meeting his family for the first time over the Christmas dinner. Whether you’re in a serious relationship or dating someone new, meeting the family — and especially the parents — can be nerve-racking. While there’s no predicting how the meeting will go, thanks to all the movie examples of worse-case scenarios and crazy families, we can at least relax knowing it could be worse. And we can learn what to do and what not to do from these memorable meet-the-family scenes. Check out the tips for meeting the fam now! Read more…

7 Psychotic Pieces Of Relationship Advice From Cosmo

We get it. Guys are tough to figure out: There’s like 24 possible combinations that you can make with 1) beer 2) food 3) sex and 4) sports. No wonder their girlfriends have to resort to lady magazines to gain insight into the buzzing hive that is the male mind. We know most women laugh that stuff off as cheap entertainment not to be taken seriously, but what if they actually did listen to all of the advice?

It’d pretty much turn into a nightmare of paranoia and petty revenge. After all, according to various Cosmo articles…

#7: He Shares the Details of His Day, Therefore He Must Be Hiding Something

Men just aren’t as communicative as women, especially when they’re stressed. So, let’s say a guy makes a conscious decision to share more. That’s solid advice, no matter the source. When she asks him about his day, instead of just saying, “fine,” he can tell her in detail about his argument with Sarah, the lady from HR. Read more…

Why Taylor Swift Sucks At Relationships (And What You Can Learn From Her)

If Taylor Swift keeps going on the same track in the love department, she may want to consider naming her next album: “Maybe It’s Me.” Seriously, girlfriend is gorgeous, rich, talented, sweet, and yet she can’t–for the life of her—seem to hang onto a man for more than a few months.

I don’t know Taylor personally. I do know people who have met and interviewed her  though and by all accounts, she’s an incredibly kind and genuine person, which is not something you find too often in Hollywood. The purpose of this article is not to bash her, but rather, to learn from her. I don’t really pay close attention to pop culture these days, but Taylor is one famous face who I can’t seem to escape, and who’s troubles in the love department have captured my attention (and sympathy!). Read more…

You’ve been dating this guy for a few weeks, and—SCORE—he finally made it official! And, more importantly, you’re finally Facebook friends. But don’t get too excited—this doesn’t mean you can give social media etiquette the shaft.  I’ve seen it happen far too many times: A girlfriend becomes intoxicated by her newfound Facebook relationships, and one month in, she’s posting her deepest feelings all over her new beaus’ wall. Not only is it beyond cringe-worthy to see (really, I don’t need or care to know every course of your romantic Valentine’s Day dinner), but it’s also doing her a disservice.  Most of my friends are wise enough not to be that obsessive, over-eager girl when it comes to calling, texting and clinging—at least in the early stages of the relationship—yet when it comes to Facebook, that goes completely out the window, and they end up being that girl anyway. Before you let loose on his wall and end up the same, read below on seven things not to do or post when it comes to his digital world.
