Don’t Do It: Dating A Guy With Children

If you’re a 20- to 35-year-old woman without any children I caution you against dating a man with kids. I did this once and, let me tell you, I learned my lesson. I dated The Cop off-and-on for about six years and I have to admit that love kept me from realizing just how big a problem his children were in our relationship. Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion. He canceled the day of because his youngest daughter had hit her head and he’d spent the previous night in the emergency room. I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again. Keep reading »

The Bachelor: Where Are They Now?

ABC is letting me down. Following up Matt Grant, the hot British guy, with rejected Bachelorette contestant Jason Mesnick for the next season of The Bachelor is such a huge letdown. I know plenty of other women who watched the show, gag, liked the guy, but I found him to be wimpy, and mealy-mouthed, and completely devoid of charm and dazzle. Though I know the producers are hoping to go in a new direction by having a single dad as The Bach, I just don’t buy this as a good spin for a reality TV dating show. It’s irresponsible for a father to date that many women on national TV and then ask one of them to marry him at the end, without having the child get to know what could be his new mommy. But whatevs. I think I am just upset that the next season of The Bachelor is going to be devoid of sex appeal. Keep reading »

    Poll: The Bachelor Wants His Ring Back — Should Shayne Lamas Return It?

    Looks like Lorenzo isn’t the only renegade in the Lamas family. His daughter, Shayne, has run off with a 2.65 carat engagement rock. Shayne made a name for herself as a contestant on The Bachelor: London Calling. The wannabe actress won the heart of the bachelor from Britain, who infamously proposed to her by asking, “Monkey, will you marry me?” Well, rumor has it Shayne has been monkeying around in Las Vegas with media magnate Justin Weneger. And another couple TV made has gone sadly, yet predictably, splitsville. Since the engagement was broken, Matt Grant, who is now a bachelor again, wants the diamond and platinum engagement ring back. But Shayne is refusing to hand it over. Well, at least the girl has got balls as big as the rock! We’ve written about the etiquette during this situation before, but are dying for your opinion — would you still keep the ring bling? [Tango] Keep reading »

    Romance On TV: Bachelor Aaron Buerge Is Still As D-Baggy As Ever

    To be honest, despite being a loyal viewer, I have hated most of the guys picked to be The Bachelor. In fact, the only guy featured on the show who I could honestly see myself being hot for was Ryan Sutter, the guy Trista, the first Bachelorette gave the final rose to and who she later married. He was friggin’ hot and he seemed nice and he wrote poetry (terrible poetry but I disgress) and he was a fireman. What’s not to love? The rest of The Bachelor‘s have ranged from mediocre (Andrew Firestone) to downright awful (Alex Michel). But the worst of the worst of the worst was Bachelor Aaron Buerge from season two. He was, in a word, a total d-bag. And by the looks of last night’s Where Are They Now? special, he is still just as heinous as ever. For the record, he shows how a fist bump shouldn’t be done.
