25 Signs He’s Definitely Not “The One”

Spoofing infamous celebrity couples, Virgin Mobile manufactured their own celebrity duo, “Sparah” — that’s Spencer Falls and Sarah Carroll — and are looking to see just how recognizable the pair will become. Sparah recently shared their thoughts on dating and relationships with The Frisky, to which we responded with our own two cents. For example, how does Sarah think a woman can tell if a guy is “the one”? “He walks slow when you’re in heels — piggy-backs are a plus,” she told The Frisky. “Oh, and he waits a week or two before passing gas in front of you.”

Hmm, we’re all about dudes who are gentlemanly and don’t walk ahead of us, no matter our footwear, but we’ve never really thought about the appropriate time for a guy to start breaking wind. What we have thought a lot about is the signs that someone is not the one. Perhaps, Sarah should take some advice from us and check out the 25 Signs He’s Not The One, after the jump. You know, in case she needs a good reason to pretend to break up with Spencer for a story in Us Weekly or something. Keep reading »

The only really positive thing about still being in the dating game in my 30s is that I spend a lot less time wasting my time. After all these years of dating Mr. Wrongs, I can immediately spot the signs that I am going to have to send him back into the sea for some other (un)lucky girl to catch. Sometimes I still try to convince myself that he can stay and play in my pond for a little while, ya know … just for fun, but I’ve gotten much better at knowing why and when to let that sucker swim. After the jump, some signs that Mr. Wrong needs to be Mr. Gone. Just in case you needed a friendly reminder to let that not-right-for-you guy go. Add your tips in the comments. Keep reading »

Jenna Fischer Says Her Views On “The One” Changed After Her Divorce

“In a way, yes. After my divorce, someone said to me, ‘Finding love is not as hard as picking the right person to spend the rest of your life with.’ It was Paul Lieberstein, the executive producer of The Office; he also plays Toby on the show. I held on to that advice when I was searching. I’d start to fall for someone and think, But that’s not a good match. The fluttery feelings aren’t enough. When I was younger, I thought you married the person you fell in love with the most. But as [my ex-husband and I] learned what we wanted, I realized there was a whole other set of criteria. You have to ask, Do we have the same goals?”

– Jenna Fischer (“The Office”) on how her perception of “The One” changed after her divorce in the new issue of Redbook. She’s now remarried. What do you think — is finding “The One” (if such a thing exists — I think we have a few “Ones” in our lives) about so much more than just falling in love? [Just Jared] Keep reading »

In the latest issue of Glamour, there’s this really interesting feature called “How I Knew” which features short little essays by men on “how they knew” certain things: “How I Knew I Really Would Marry Her,” “How I Knew I Was Going To Cheat,” etc. My favorite of the bunch was “How I Knew She Wasn’t The One,” in which writer Adam Sternbergh rather humorously describes how he knew various women weren’t “the one” until he finally did meet the one who was. Now, I’m not really a big believer in “the one,” so to speak, as I think we all have lots of of ones, but I am a big believer that we have even more people in our lives who were NOT the one and we can usually pinpoint one particular moment when that became clear. So, in the vein of Sternbergh’s essay for Glamour, here’s my own “How I Knew He Wasn’t The One.”

Here’s Where To Meet Your Future Husband

Life is busy. If you’re a single woman looking to maximize your time spent looking for a future husband, you probably wonder: is it better to date online, hit up a bar, have friends set me up or search for Mr. Right at work? Keep reading »

Girl Talk: There Is No Such Thing As “The One”

Awhile ago, I went to one of those psychic-type people. I don’t think she called herself that, but you get the point. Anyway, she said something that has stuck in my head ever since. I think I made a passing reference to finding “The One,” and she made a face.

“There’s no such thing as ‘The One,’” she explained. “There is only the one who is ‘The One’ right now.”

And, you know what? I think she was right. Keep reading »

Dating Advice: A Guy Will Tell You What’s Wrong With Him In The First Hour

Visit any website for women, and you’re bound to find posts on how to figure out whether or not he’s “The One.” If he does this, he is. If he does this, he’s not. After a while, all the TMI turns into a tsunami, and you wonder what the hell to think when you finally find yourself out on a date. But I’ve got a theory. I think a guy will tell you within the first hour of meeting him what’s wrong with him. And, face it, something is. The same way there’s something “wrong” with you. Which isn’t to say there’s anything “wrong” with either of you, exactly. It’s really more what we think is wrong with us, and going into a relationship what we all want to know is: But will you love me anyway? Keep reading »

How To Tell He’s Not The One

Some people say they “just knew” that they were dating their future spouse. But what about the rest of us? What happens when you’re not sure if he’s The One? If you’re considering long-term commitment or marriage, it’s time to ask yourself some tough questions. Here are ten signs that may indicate he’s not for you. Keep reading »

Should You Pursue A Second Shot With “The One That Got Away”?

I’ve had many potential soul mates. When I was 14, I fell for Rob, a 20-something who worked at my local video store. I used to go in there every day to peruse the new releases, not realizing my constant presence was a dead giveaway for my raging hormonal interest in his tan arms. When he complimented me on my newly henna-ed hair — he noticed?! — I thought for sure that someday he would see the light and realize we were meant to be. Instead, he quit his job and I never saw him again. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: How To Know When You’ve Found The One

Last year I went to Italy for my best friend’s wedding and ended up sleeping with her husband’s best friend at the reception. I was sure I would never see him again, but he hunted me down the next night and ended up driving me to the airport for my departure the next morning. We connected on Facebook and wrote emails to each other regularly. I decided to return to Italy for two months, and while I was living in Florence our love affair continued and intensified. When it came time for me to leave Italy, I cried uncontrollably all the way to my connection in Paris! When I got home I confessed my love for him via email. He responded that he also loved me but he wasn’t sure it was in the “same way.” In the year since then we email each other and he occasionally professes his love and how much he misses me, which sends me reeling. He came to visit me in August and we spent almost three weeks together in Colorado and out east. I daydream about moving back to Italy just to see if he is The One. I can’t discern my feelings for him anymore. Am I in love with him or am I in love with our romantic unreal experience? How do I really know if I love this man? — Is That Amore?
