5 super creative, thoughtful, and sometimes practical Valentine's Day gifts that your boyfriend didn't even know he wanted.
Holidays are a lovely time to spend with family...who all seem to ask the same question: "Are you seeing anyone?!"
They're no Breakfast at Tiffany's, but they might not be too awful.
There are a few weeks of summer left, so let's get you an Autumn Boyfriend before you find yourself carving pumpkins and picking apples #forever alone.
I don't know what to do. We've been dating for three years and now we're about to finish college and I just can't stand it anymore.
I lost the trust of my older brother. I told him I wouldn't date his friends and then I dated his best friend behind his back. The problem is, too, that we had sex in his bed once.
He and I have been really close friends for two years now, we get on really well and I like him a lot but I don't want to go further if our friendship will be ruined and we break up then never talk again.
I don't want to lose an opportunity with a guy that I'm really into, but I don't want to mess things up either! What should I do?
A week or so ago, my friend's boyfriend of three and a half years broke up with her citing that he "wanted to experience college and allow her to do the same." Every day last week consisted of her crying.
I asked this guy out on a date and now I'm freaking out because I have no idea where to take him. I want to seem cool so I don't want to just take him for dinner and a movie. Ideas?
I'm afraid of bringing him to work parties and having my co-workers ask what he does. I'm afraid of bringing him around my friends with their highly successful fiancés - not because of his lack of 'experience', but because being with someone like that has never been an option for me, and it's not really who I am.
Recently I was on a date with this guy I've been seeing for a few weeks, and we were really getting along until I mentioned that I was a feminist. He started telling with me how I shouldn't be one and that he's not one because he believes in equality between both sexes.
I don't know what is wrong with me, but I think my vagina is too tight/small. Although I have been having sex for almost a year, it is still often painful afterwards (if not during), and it snaps back to it's original state.
The cosmos must really be trying to get my 2013 off to a blazing start. Yesterday I found out that my swag master/spirit animal/future BFFL is getting his own reality TV show, today I saw this video of James Franco lip synching to Jusin Bieber's timeless hit "Boyfriend". It's a beautiful, blurry mix of moptop hair and groping hands and I think I'm in love.
Humans are a curious breed, always seeking explanations to questions that don't have definitive answers: What's the meaning of life? Is there life outside our universe? Are we exclusive, or what? This week, what role do labels play in relationships?
At first my girlfriends were pretty convinced that he liked me, but after our movie date (if it even was a date), they aren't sure. When we parted ways, we both said we had a great time and that we hoped to see each other soon, but I didn't get a text afterwards. Is it worth pining after this boy, or should I take my "three day rule" girlfriend's advice and just get over it?
Shopping for dudes can be hard because the media tells us they only like tech-y/video game-y stuff which is mad crazy expensive and still very subjective.
I hung out with one guy for about 8 hours; we just talked and really connected, and he told me how great a person I was and how I was so different from other girls, blah blah blah. We didn't do anything but talk and the conversation was great; I thought for sure I'd found a great friend.
Sometimes it seems like we may be "talking" and others it seems like he just wants a friendship, and I'm honestly fine with either. I want to know where we're at so that I don't get unrealistic expectations, but I don't want to bring it up and potentially screw up a good friendship.
Talking, courting and dating is all fine and dandy – until you try to put a label on whatever it is that you’re doing. In my limited scope of experience, I’ve found that the “What are we?” question can either make or break a relationship.
He asked me out two months ago, and I've had a crush on him for a while. I was happy as could be...for about a month and a half. Then I lost interest. Lost the spark. You know why?
One day I found out through one of his friends that he was seeing someone else...I was pretty heartbroken. I confronted him. He admitted up to it and said that he only saw me as a friend. And me, desperately trying to save face, said the same.
I told him I didn't want to live with anyone until I was engaged first. I'm wondering if I am making it too hard on the poor guy - he is moving 1,000 miles away from home to be with me, and I'm making him find an apartment, find his own roommates, while we both know that he'll probably be over at my place all the time.
So often we get inklings of feelings, unsure of their weight or their worth. It's when those feelings continue to linger like an aftertaste that you need to vocalize them. This week, whether it's good or bad, if you just can't shake something, say something.
When it comes to love, I’d say that it’s a grey concept. In other words, love isn’t black and white. Yes, I suppose that you either love someone or not, but what's important to remember is that love comes in many forms. While taking a sociology class, I studied Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of love, which posits that there are four main types of love: intimate, committed, and passionate, and consummate love.
