7 Things You Should Feel Comfortable Doing In Front Of Your Man

I think it’s so annoying when girls won’t eat a big meal in front of their date, or just have to wear a full face of makeup whenever a guy they like is around. We’re humans, not dolls with no organs, and last time I checked, men feel pretty comfortable burping and the rest around…

13 Things To Do After Sex Besides Sleeping Or Cuddling

A new study done at University of Michigan explored people’s post-coital sleep behaviors. To cuddle or to sleep, that was the question. And who falls asleep first?

A Simple 100-Point Guide To Flirting Like A Victorian

We tend to think that coupling has gotten more — not less — complicated through the ages. But a simple perusal of these guides to flirtation from the late-1800s will have you thinking twice. Every flick of a fan, wink of the eye, or toss of a glove signified something to a potential suitor, so…

Lies We Wish We Never Told — Share Yours!

Some lies go off without a hitch, like the time I swore to my parents that the strange smell coming from my room was definitely incense. Sorry mom and dad! And then there are the other kinds of lies, the ones that go so terribly, terribly wrong they make you wish you could dig yourself…

The 6 Things I Was Embarrassed To Learn As An Adult

I know there are a lot of things I don’t know even though I’m a fairly well-educated woman. The revelation that you have been totally in the dark about some widely-known piece of information can be, well, humiliating. Especially when it happens in front of a group of people. On their Facebook page, NPR asked

A Loving Partner Can Help You Become A Better Person

A new study conducted at the University of Minnesota found that the better relationship you had with your parents, the better you are at letting bygones be bygones with your S.O. Why?

An Open Letter To Taylor Swift After Being Dumped By Jake Gyllenhaal

Dear Taylor Swift,

I heard that you and Jake Gyllenhaal are kapput. I could have called that one from a mile away. I don’t mean to pour salt in that gaping wound, but we all knew it was just a matter of time. US Weekly is reporting that you are “devastated” that Jake kicked…

Ladies, Beware The Text-lationship!

About a month ago I was waiting in line at the grocery store when I spotted a hot guy standing behind me. I made a joke about how slow the line was going. He laughed. I smiled. And off we were. After we had both checked out, he continued to walk with me to the…

5 Things We Tell Guys We Don’t Mind, But We Really Do

We all tell little white lies. The world would stop turning and erupt in bloodshed if we said what we really thought all the time. I have been thinking, however, that while I have to constantly change things up with women, I can keep on telling different guys the same altered-truths because their questions never…

Passive Aggressive Behavior And Why It’s OK, Sometimes

Passive aggressive behavior is probably on most people’s list of annoying qualities in another person. Scratch that, passive aggressive behavior usually falls into the category of legit reasons to banish someone for your life. I have never been pro passive aggression, in fact, I get rather peeved when someone pulls the hot/cold routine on me.

Girl Talk: How Much Do Boyfriends And Best Friends Really Need To Get Along?

I love my best friend, I love my boyfriend. These two people who hold such special places in my heart should love each other like I love them. In theory, if I have enough in common with both of them to have such a strong bond with each, shouldn’t the two of them also have…

Top Five Reasons To Date The Sidekick Instead Of The Leading Man

I love a hero. It’s hard to resist those devastatingly handsome leading men who duel evil at great personal cost. And yet, I have more of a thing for the sidekick. Sure their characters are underdeveloped and their emotional growth is equal to that of a chia pet, but sidekicks are severely underrated. Just because…

What Do You Do If Your Boyfriend Becomes A Smoker?

My boyfriend just came back from a semester abroad in Paris — and he came back a smoker. I am not a smoker. Never have been, never will be. I couldn’t smoke during high school as I was dancing professionally for an opera company, and by the time I got to college it just didn’t…

Top 10 Facebook Relationship Etiquette Rules

Facebook, like nuclear technology, is a tool that can be used for good as well as evil. And there are clearly some people who lack the ability (or desire) to use either responsibly. One of my all-time favorite Facebook stories involved a recent college graduate backtracking it to the old Alma Mater (it wasn’t Tucker…

Dating Drama: To Movie Date Or Not To Movie Date?

“Dinner and a movie” may sound like the most boring, clichéd date ever, but I think movie dates are hot. When you go to the movies with someone, you learn a lot about them: what kinds of films they like, whether they pay for the tickets, how they behave in the theater. You may not…

Wife With A Life: Pre-Cana Is A Mixed Blessing

Before my husband and I could have a Catholic wedding, we had to attend Pre-Cana. It’s like Driver’s Ed. for engaged Catholic couples. In theory, it’s a great idea. Couples are counseled en masse on a wide-range of topics, including compatibility and conflict resolution within marriage, the theological meaning of marriage, and Catholic rules couple…

Wife With A Life: Our First Christmas

After almost six years, a wedding, and a house, there aren’t a whole lot of “firsts” left for my husband and me. In a few weeks, we’re adopting our first pet. When we have some spare money, I hope someday we can take our first trip to Europe. Maybe one day we’ll have our first…

Guy Gets Dumped Via His Blog

“Sean recorded private webcam conversations with his girlfriend and put them on his blog. When she finds out, things go from bad to worse.” I’m not going to spoil “Dumped” by saying too much about it, but suffice to say it’s about a guy who gets dumped, and it has a surprising twist.
