The Notebook: Why Men Hate It

Ask any girl what they think of the movie The Notebook and her eyes will change, she'll say “Oh I love that movie,” and visibly melt before your eyes. Ask a guy what he thinks of the movie and he’ll pull a face and mutter with utter contempt “Ugh, I hate that movie.” So why are there such opposing views of the film between the sexes? And why do men hate it more than every other romantic movie out there? Continue reading "The Notebook: Why Men Hate It"

Men vs. Women: What Each Gender Really Thinks About Valentine’s DAY

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner which means you’re either spending way too much time debating if your not-boyfriend-boyfriend is going to take you on a date or you’ve already picked out the sweatpants you’re going to wear and the tub of ice cream you’re going to eat.  Here is a survey about what each gender thinks about February 14th…and some of the results might shock you!

5 Tips for a Long-Lasting Relationship

Laughing couple. Here are my five foolproof ways for  keeping that fire a-burnin’… 1. Choose Your Battles It sounds cliché, but this is truly one of the most important ingredients to a long-lasting relationship. It definitely isn’t easy, especially when he’s done something that is so juvenile (such as leaving his dirty socks on top the coffee table … gross), but I know from experience that blowing up time and again over little, insignificant irritants - in the grand scheme of things - is not the way to go. If he stays out all night with his boys at questionable bars without giving you a call, then by all means let him have it. Otherwise try your damndest to turn the other cheek (because really, who wants to waste precious Gossip Girl time arguing about laundry?). Continue reading "5 Tips for a Long-Lasting Relationship"

I’ve been dating this boy for about two months. He’s great, and so far things have been going really well. We spend a lot of time together without getting sick of each other, but haven’t meshed into a creepy and mushy single being like some couples are prone to. He makes me laugh, although it’s usually more at him than with him. He’s GREAT in bed. But best of all, I just feel comfortable with him. I’m not constantly paranoid about checking my makeup or trying to force witty conversation. I can be completely me, and he likes me more for it. It’s perfect, right? Not quite.

Miss Manners: Break Up Etiquette

break-up There is no polite way to break up with someone. Yes, the cold, hard truth is, breaking up with someone is dirty business and – unless the relationship really wasn’t that serious – one of you is bound to end up looking like a mess. While there is no set in stone way of saying, “Hey, it’s over,” or “Sorry but I’m leaving you for your brother,” there are some more or less common sense rules to abide to Continue reading "Miss Manners: Break Up Etiquette"
