6 Things Not To Do On A First Date

Set your DVRs! Why? Bravo’s latest must-watch reality TV show, “Most Eligible: Dallas,” debuts Monday night. In honor of our new favorite guilty pleasure, which follows a group of hot singles in the Texas city, we’ve got some first date tips that you – and they! – should follow.

The unthinkable has happened. He asked you out. The only guy who renders you speechless. The guy so smart, handsome and unbelievably hot you can do little more than blush and stutter in his presence. And now you’re going out with him. Tomorrow. Hooray?

Your friends think it’s cute that you’re in such a panic, but you can’t see any humor in the situation. Not only do you have to lose 10 pounds, grow an extra cup size and somehow talk your mousey mop into looking like Jennifer Aniston’s—you have to do it all by tomorrow. Oh, and you should probably also think about regaining your powers of speech. What to wear? What to smell like? What to do?

Okay, we can’t really help you with that, but here are a few things you definitely shouldn’t do, after the jump… Keep reading »

Nerd Girl Porn: Super Hot Dudes Holding Super Adorable Babies

Most would probably agree that the sight of a hot guy holding a baby in one of those hippie swaddle things is basically the hottest thing ever because it touches on two primal urges—the desire to f**k and the desire to procreate. I’m not saying all women want kids, but a glimpse of a hot dude holding a ridiculously cute baby is enough to make even the biggest kid hater go “hmm…” Said effect is evidenced by this recent Twit Pic of David Beckham cuddling little Harper Seven. Holy crap, I don’t even know who to swoon over. [Celebitchy]

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The The Teen Choice Awards

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The Teen Choice Awards
So many questions emerging from this weekend’s Teen Choice Awards. Like, what is a Kaley Cuoco, the host of said Teen Choice festivities? And did somebody really name their child Fivel–as in teen star Fivel Stewart? What about the strange bun-type accoutrement on the top of Lil Twist’s head? And then there were the fashions–proof that perhaps even famous teens need guidance when it comes their sartorial choices. And we can’t even get into what “So You Think You Can Dance” judge Mary Murphy is wearing. Keep clicking to see the good, the bad, and the WTF of the Teen Choice Awards’ red carpet fashions…

17 Sex Euphemisms That Won’t Get You Laid

Should you be in the market for sex with a lady, there are polite ways to inform your potential partner of your amorous desires and totally inappropriate ways to do so.

5 Financial Goals I Have For My 30s

I’m proud of the fact that, I achieved a couple major financial goals in my 20s, namely paying off all my credit card debt and building a career that has allowed me to save money every month. But this November, I will turn 32 — hmm, that’s sort of upsetting to actually see written down — and it’s time for new goals. I was planning on writing about the financial goals I plan to achieve by age 35, but upon realizing that I really only have three years until then (for some reason, I felt like my 30th birthday was yesterday), this list is now going to have a more general timeline. Won’t you join me and list your goals as well? Keep reading »

6 Financial Decisions From My 20s That I Regret

I’m not even going to sugarcoat it: I’m basically the poster child for the white girl from the suburbs whose dad just took care of all the bills growing up and never taught me anything about finances. They were traditional that way: Dad handled money stuff and Mom handled childrearing stuff. My parents never gave me spending money and I always babysat and worked after school jobs. However, other than generally teaching me that I had to earn my own money, neither of them talked me to at all about saving, investing, 401ks, interest rates, or any of that other its-like-speaking-another-language stuff. I had to read blogs and buy books to myself about money (Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich by Lois P. Frankel is a good one). Still, I wish I’d made some financial decisions differently. (Luckily, I’m only 27, so it’s not too late to start!) Keep reading »

Romance is dead.

That’s the consensus you could draw from five minutes on the dating scene. Instead of butterflies, hormones seem to be driving our coupling up. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing if all you want is sexual gratification. I’m only human: there’s been times I’ve just needed a roll in the hay. But I’m also a woman who loves romance — traditional, old school, stars-in-my-eyes romance — and I speak from personal experience that it’s not easy to find.

Alas, both men and women have forgotten how to woo each other. I wholeheartedly agreed with the actress Emma Watson when she told Vogue recently, “I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation.”

Yesterday Amelia published a post called “Dating Don’ts: These 7 Romantic Gestures Need To Go.” Here in The Frisky’s office, we spent all morning fighting about it. A few of my fellow Frisky ladies would run for the hills if a dude bought them chocolate, serenaded them with a song [No, only a song that he misinterpreted as romantic. -- Editor], or showered rose petals on their bed. But me? That sounds like my perfect guy.

I respectfully disagree with you, Amelia, that romantic gestures can be cheesy or infantilizing. Romance is about stimulating the senses, creating an aura, and drawing someone in. Romance does not have to be dead, people! After the jump, five romantic gestures that need to stay. Keep reading »

22 Guy Careers That Sound Great On Paper, But Just Aren’t In Actuality

When I was younger, I thought that dating a professional baseball player would be awesome. Free VIP seating at every game, the notoriety of being a celebrity wife, plus getting to look at a chiseled, athletic body every day? Sign me up! I thought. Well, life has taught me to be more of a realist. First of all, what are the chances I could actually come into contact with and successfully seduce a pro athlete? Second, what about road games? I mean, would he ever be home? And then there are the groupies. I try not to be territorial or jealous (note: try) but those girls are ruthless!

So, I was thinking: How many more potential professions sound amazing, but have some major downsides? Check out these guy careers and the reasons that dating these gainfully employed men might be more difficult than you think. Keep reading »

16 Celebs Who Are Supposedly Bad In Bed
Crystal Harris majorly broke Hugh Hefner‘s heart when she called off their wedding. It doesn’t help that, since their split, she has been seen multiple times with Dr. Phil’s son, Jordan McGraw. But now Crystal is adding injury to insult, hitting Hugh below the belt. Literally. In other words, she told Howard Stern that their sex life totally sucked. She says that during her courtship with Hugh, they only had sex once and that it lasted “like two seconds.” She also implied that he has body issues. “He doesn’t really take off his clothes. I’ve never seen Hef naked,” she said. “Then I was just over it. I was like, ‘Ahhh.’ I was over it. I just like, walked away. I’m not turned on by Hef, sorry.” All this leads to the ultimate question: why did you accept his proposal? But we’ll move past that. [People] Really, are you actually surprised Hefner can’t practice what he preaches? We’re not. But we were a little surprised by at least a few of these other celebs who are reportedly duds in the sex department.
