I understand why online dating gets a bad rap: it takes away the fun of the “meet-cute” and forces you to judge, based on very little information, whether you want to take risks with someone else’s neuroses and perversions. There have been online dates I’ve been on over the past four years, such as with the 9/11 conspiracy theorist, that I’ve hated, too.

But it’s also true that I found my boyfriend on an online dating site, too. Granted, we’ve only been an item for four months, so we’re not exactly Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson here. However, it wasn’t particularly arduous or awful finding each other and we fit pretty well. And from my last relationship to my current one, I actually dated exclusively two different guys for one month each that I met online, too. I’d like to think when it comes to this online dating thing, I’m doing something right!

Basically, I treated it like shopping. If you’re looking for a pair of black skinny jeans in a size 10, don’t go home with a denim skort. It might be sold in the same department … but it’s not really the same thing. So, for what they’re worth, here are my (obviously very heteronormative) strategies for the rest of you frustrated online daters: Keep reading »

I was an early adopter of online dating: I was into it before it became as commonplace as it is today, and I was young (22) when I first started. Back then (cue “when I was your age…”), young twentysomethings didn’t really “do” online dating. And if they did, they didn’t exactly openly advertise it. I think it’s safe to say that five, six years ago, it was easy to feel relatively ashamed about meeting strangers over the internet. But not me. I wanted to be dating and liked having some control over that area of my life. Keep reading »

  • I actually think this would be awesome: Adele has been offered $1.6 million by The Big and the Beautiful, a dating website for plus-size women and the men who love them. The Big and the Beautiful was started by “America’s Next Top Model Winner,” Whitney Thompson, who was the first-ever plus-size winner of the show. I’m fairly certainly Adele is going to say “no,” since she probably makes $1.6 million in her sleep at this point. But the idea doesn’t make me vom. [Life & Style]
  • You know what does make me vom? Gross Howard Stern grilled Adam Levine about his “Voice” co-host Christina Aguilera’s weight. Ugh, he is such a sexist pig. Do you think Christina gets asked questions about Cee Lo’s weight?! [PopCrush]
  • Do you like going to the mall? You’re in luck! “Hunger Games” cast members are pulling a Justin Bieber and traveling to malls around the country to promote the flick. [The FW]
  • France has decided to ditch the word “mademoiselle,” which means “miss,” from official documents. I am quite certain I am going to have to listen to Le Boyfriend le complain about this. [TresSugar]
  • Ten things you will never hear inside a Lululemon store. [Ecosalon] Keep reading »
