If there is one thing we’ve done, it is discuss and dissect the minutia of every date and relationship we’ve had over the last ten years. In fact we’ve sometimes discussed a relationship for longer than the length of the actual relationship. We all need help from time to time. If you’re stuck in the quagmire of relationship drama, chances are we’ve been there too. Help! is here.
Do you have any questions? Do you need some advice? Did you experience a breakup, bad date or just some weirdness that you want to share? Let us know. We can’t wait to hear from you.
We’ve all heard the phrase ‘love is a drug,’ but science proves it. You may remember when we told you that your brain reacts similarly when you fall in love as it does when it’s on cocaine. Ever considered the ‘rush’ of meeting someone new or the ‘high’ of falling in love? Scientists have, and apparently […]
Last week, a reader of this blog sent me a link to an OkCupid dating profile. I wasn’t sure why I was clicking on it until I saw my photo looking back at me with the user name “NiceHunter007.” A complete stranger was using my picture as theirs on a dating site. Apparently I was a single, marketing rep living in Canoga Park, CA looking for a guy. A couple things ran through my mind, 1) that’s super creepy 2) I’m married and really don’t want my face floating around a dating website 3) I guess it’s complementary and 4) Nope, I’m back to being creeped out.
While normally few would care that much about an older actor talking about his health, Douglas caused a frenzy by discussing oral sex. Yep, an actor known for playing some seriously sexy, explicit, boundary-pushing roles discussed his cancer and how cunnilingus and the HPV virus affected it. I’m not so sure Catherine Zeta-Jones approved this conversation, because people lost their shit.
I always remember those moments in movies when the lead actress made a fabulous entrance in an equally fabulous dress: from Scarlett O’Hara’s entrance to Melanie’s birthday party in that scandalous red dress in Gone With the Wind, to Audrey Hepburn’s opening scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s in that stunning Givenchy dress. I tend to be a fan of fashion drama (rather than real life drama).
I realized this when I caught an episode of Bravo’s new show about single, relationship experts. I thought “Miss Advised” would be right up my alley. It is about three relationship experts (Emily has a sex advice radio show, Amy is a matchmaker in New York, and Julia writes a dating column) who are all single and dating. It’s like a Carrie Bradshaw reality show… except it isn’t. These women lack the Patricia Fields style and incredible writing team of “Sex and the City” and of course, it’s their ‘reality.’
Tracy and I had tons in common, lots of mutual friends, very similar personalities and before you knew it, we were the best of friends. So when she asked me to co-officiate her wedding, I was honored. I thought that the day I eventually got married, she would be standing there for me. I never imagined a day would come when we blocked each other from facebook, don’t speak to each other, and if we should run into each other at social occasions, the bare minimum of civility is all either of us can muster. Even describing that (which is very true) is sad. But I was friend dumped.
