Would you ever help your significant other pay for your engagement ring? Apparently it’s happening more than we know.
Last week, while falling asleep to the evening news, I overheard a report that had me bolt up from my semi-coma and stare at my TV screen in confusion. The newscasters were discussing the increasing frequency of women helping their boyfriend’s purchase engagement rings— by chipping in. Keep reading »
Let’s face it: the economy sucks. And unfortunately, not having much money can sometimes get in the way of things … including dating.
As a single gal, I’m hearing of more and more people who have opted to forgo the traditional first-date dinner at a restaurant in favor of an evening at home getting to know one another. Not only is entertaining a date in your home more comfortable for some, limiting the amount of awkward silences and giving you that in-your-element advantage, but it’s also usually easier on the wallet. Pop in a movie, grab a bottle of wine and some snacks, and voila! Keep reading »
After live tweeting through last night’s season premiere of “Nashville,” and then discussing the episode this morning around the water cooler (okay, not really … we were just at our desks), it dawned on me: every character who appeared to be doing a good deed was really doing something that would ultimately benefit them. Or, at least, that’s what we were led to believe.
Characters who were introduced to us in season one as selfish individuals were later humanized, slowly redeeming themselves through various acts of kindness and humility. But looking back, it’s hard to tell which of those acts were genuine. In last night’s premiere, several characters’ “selfless” acts seemed to be peppered with their own, personal intentions in mind.

Happy National Singles Week! In honor of the festive occasion, I’d like to discuss people who SETTLE.

So many people I know have chosen to be with, and in some cases, marry, someone who is not right for them— just to avoid the possibility of not finding “the one” and growing old alone. Keep reading »
Ohh, the C-word. We’ve had many discussions about how it’s used, why it’s used, where it came from and whether or not it’s offensive, but this morning, one Miley Cyrus helped propel the word “cunt” back into the spotlight.

Let’s take a minute to talk about Miley Cyrus, shall we?
With a performance so uncomfortable it rivals that of the bride who grinded down the aisle to Buckcherry’s “Crazy Bitch,” Miley’s jaw-dropping VMAs stunt left parents covering the eyes of their children and grown adults glaring with disapproval as they watched in awe.
It’s safe to say the twerkin’ pop star’s performance ruffled more than a few feathers, but there’s something to be said about the fact that we’re still talking about it days later. Wasn’t that the point? Keep reading »
Let’s talk about Sydney Leathers for a minute. Sydney Leathers is a LOT of things, but is she a bad person?
This woman has made some choices that I don’t agree with— carrying on a sexting affair with a very married Anthony Weiner (ew), capitalizing on her newfound attention by releasing a hardcore masturbation porno, penning an article for xoJane.com about “How to Seduce a Politician,” to name a few.
