Think of fireflies, and you might recall memories of summer where you looked at the flashing lights hovering over a field, or even ran through them, trying to cusp your hands around one of the insects to catch the glowing lights.

Girl Talk Gets A Bad Rap

Why didn’t he call? What did I do wrong? Do you think he likes me? If I had a nickel for every time I asked my BFF these questions, I’d be rich. While I may pointlessly fritter away my imaginary nickels on high-heels, it turns out that I’ve definitely been wasting my energy and time,…

“It’s Not You, It’s Your Books…”

The New York Times‘ Book Review section had an interesting, Modern Love-esque column this weekend about how hard it can be dating someone whose taste in books you hate.

It’s Not Fair That Guys Are Incapable Of Getting Pregnant

The New York Times had an interesting op-ed piece entitled “Sex and the Teenage Girl” in yesterday’s paper. Basically, it brings up the fact that the effects of a pregnancy—whether it is terminated or the baby is given up for adoption—are lasting.
