- 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 »

Single this Valentine’s Day? Then perhaps you’ll be interested in this advice from an eHarmony senior director. Grant Langston tells Time the five most overused, meaningless phrases you should take off your online dating profile right now. Read more…
Now that Valentine’s Day has passed, it’s time to look forward, to shed past heartache and focus on finding someone special this year. Maybe you’ve tried online dating? But perhaps the sites you’re using are too general, and aren’t helping you meet the right people. What if you really want to shed your city living and move to a farm? There’s a site for that. Or what if you’re jonesing to meet a real life member of the geek squad? We can help you find one of those, too. Click through for our list of specialty dating sites that could bring you closer to finding your perfect match.
You know the saying “first impressions last a lifetime”? Well, it’s true and it even applies to online dating message writing. We’re most impressed by guys who actually read our profile and ask us questions about things we’ve mentioned in it. Crazy idea, I know! If you avoid these 10 common (and disastrous) phrases guys often send to ladies online, you are guaranteed to have better luck and get more responses. Keep reading »
Don’t judge me by my Android phone, Match.com! I resent the fact that a new study done by the online matchmaking site claims that Droid users are the loosest of all Smartphone owners. I quote: “Androids may be the newest Smartphone on the market but their users have already been around the block.” from a recent blog post which details the findings of this cellular study.
According to their research, “62 percent of Android users have sex on the first date and are most likely to have a one night stand, at 55 percent.” Oh, that’s great. Now I have to hide my Droid so my date doesn’t believe I’m just down for a quickie in the bathroom stall of a restaurant. Keep reading »
I am not afraid to admit that I have had two online dating accounts — one with Plenty Of Fish and another with OK Cupid. I have been messaged by hundreds of guys, which lead to three dates, and absolutely ZERO luck. I feel like I’m in one of those Lucky Charms commercials. Whoever my Mr. Right is sure knows how to use his “marshmallow magic” to hide in the sea of uninteresting, not cute enough, too shallow or completely skeevy men who have barraged my inbox with messages.
All of this disappointment has me wondering, am I just too picky? Today I found the answer: Yes — but it’s not my fault (whew!). Thanks to a CNN Health article called “Dating and the Challenge of Too Many Choices,” I now know that when people are faced with too many options (as most ladies are in the online dating world), they tend to choose none at all.

No date for Valentine’s Day and not afraid to do something desperate to get one? For $300, $700, or $1,200 you can pay for a membership package on PersonalDatingAgent.com to help you find that special someone. And luckily for you, the “initial setup fee” is free until Valentine’s Day! Whoopie!
So, how do you go about deciding which package is right for you? First it’s a question of finances. How much money do you have to spend on an incredible dating service with a plethora of testimonials by young professionals (James, John, Sarah, and Elizabeth) who claim to love the site that “does all of the work for them”? I personally think I’d go with the “executive package.” For only $1,200 I would be guaranteed 4+ dates and services including predate advice, stylist advice, concierge service and a professional photo shoot.

Oh hey, who’s that with the great bouncy waves? Wait, that’s me! This morning, I appeared on “The Today Show” with my spirit guides, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, to talk about online dating. I was joined by Ian Kerner, a sex and relationships expert and the author of the book She Comes First, one of my favorite sex advice books. Richard Simmons does not make an appearance, but our interaction before the segment gave me an additional boost of energy and excitement. (In short, he fluffed me.) Check it out!
I was one of the skeptics. Online dating sounded kinda lame to me. It sounded kinda like giving up. After all, I was living in New York, a city teeming with eligible bachelors. In theory. I wasn’t meeting any of them, but I was told they were out there. And I wanted to go on some dates. Grad school was calming down, I’d been single for long enough, and I wanted to check out some of those tiny, funky restaurants in the Village. I didn’t want anything serious. I wanted something to wear cute shoes for. I wanted the opportunity to flirt a little.
“Go online,” my beautiful and much more outgoing best friend said. Keep reading »
