Still Single? Here Are Six People to Blame

It’s not your fault that you’re single. You’ve done everything Cosmopolitan has advised. You’ve watched every episode of “The Bachelor” and noted what NOT to do.

10 Signs You’re in a Relationship With Netflix

10 Signs You’re in a Relationship With Netflix

There’s absolutely no shame in admitting that you’re closer to Netflix than your roommate. I mean, think about it — Netflix doesn’t ask nosy questions about your life, it doesn’t leave dirty clothes all over the floor and it certainly doesn’t snore loudly at night. Instead, Netflix doesn’t make a peep unless you ask it...

Is "Big" Love the Best Love?

Is “Big” Love the Best Love?

I have a confession to make: I’ve been binge-watching Sex and the City. I watched the series finale (“An American Girl in Paris”) this week. You know, the episode where Carrie packs up and moves to Paris for Aleksandr “The Russian” Petrovsky? After the relationship-ending fight with Petrovsky, Carrie makes one of her most memorable...

The event featured some of our favorite people, including Patti Stanger, known for Millionaire Matchmaker and Perez Hilton, known for his gossip website.

Has the Internet Influenced Our Ideals About Dating?

Has the Internet Influenced Our Ideals About Dating?

I’ve been single for some time now, partly by choice, but mostly because I haven’t seemed to be able to find someone who I actually want to settle down with. I know, I know – I’m still in my 20s, and I shouldn’t necessarily be on the lookout for my soulmate, the love of my life, my...
Single Syndrome: It's More Common Than You Think

Single Syndrome: It’s More Common Than You Think

I’m the kind of girl that sort of laughs (some might call it mocking) at words such as “relationship,” “boyfriend,” “dating,” or “long term” — and I really don’t feel bad about it. It seems rude, and I’m not trying to be. To the girls that can handle being in a relationship or like long-term...

Whether the kiss happened with an old flame or with someone you just met and have instant chemistry with, you probably cannot stop wondering if it meant something. In the infamous words of One Tree Hill’s Brooke Davis, “a kiss always means something.” While this is a highly debated topic, chances are if you’re reading...

My 10 Commandments of Dating

My 10 Commandments of Dating

I am notorious these days for thinking my mother is always right. Perhaps this is what happens when you graduate, mature and start acting like an adult. Don’t get me wrong, I am not the perfect and obedient daughter that statement might portray. My mother and I spent most of my teenage years yelling and...
Why People's Relationships are None of Your Business

Why People’s Relationships are None of Your Business

A friend of mine got married yesterday. Within minutes, I was all over those Facebook pictures like a kid on double-chocolate cake. Last month, when a classmate from high school announced she was engaged, I rapidly clicked through her profile (and his), dying to figure out exactly how old are they, anyway? I have what...
Why You're Not a Slut

Why You’re Not a Slut

From time to time, I like to take out my soap box and jump on it with the fury of a chick on a mission. I like to scream at the top of my lungs and make those around me say, “She’s obnoxious!” However, I reserve this totally and completely for topics that I hold...
