On Having Sex With and Without Strings Attached [Dear DBN]

On Having Sex With and Without Strings Attached [Dear DBN]

It’s just sex, right? Ha, wrong! Sex is an emotional minefield. You can cross it successfully, but you better be careful. This week, I tackle some of the complications of getting laid outside of an agreed upon arrangement.

Are Pretty People More Privileged? [Diary of the Undateable]

Are Pretty People More Privileged? [Diary of the Undateable]

A girl that I know got an awesome, highly coveted summer position at a magazine – a magazine that I’ve always admired. Though I already have a really great internship secured, I still lamented my feelings to a friend over the phone. “What made her application stronger?” I wondered aloud. Then my friend asked me the unexpected…“Is she a really pretty girl?"

Diary of the Undateable: My Inner Green-Eyed Monster

Last summer, I was at an amusement park with one of my closest pals. Anytime we stopped to play a game or ride something, she’d get chatted up and I’d be left standing, looking stupid. It’s not her fault, but it’s soooo embarrassing…and a little hurtful, honestly.

Friday Faves: The Things We’ll Do For A Man….

When it comes to wooing the opposite sex, men have it easy. As far as I know, they approach you and whip out the pick-up line. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Women on the other hand, play a whole different game. Sometimes it seems as if our entire existence is based on impressing a guy. And it's exhausting.

Here are five things you should know before entering a long distance relationship that I have discovered in my experience so far.

Ask A Dude: Is He Hiding Something?

Dear Dude, I have a new boyfriend and things are awesome, but there's a problem. Let me preface this by saying I tend to be the problem in my relationships because even though I've never been cheated on or truly hurt, I still have a problem trusting guys for some reason.

Coupled. With Guy Friends

Coupled. With Guy Friends

Growing up I was always a tomboy. I never wore anything remotely girly, played sports, and even had short hair (though that one was totally my mom's doing). So it came as no surprise that the majority of my closest friends were of the male variety.

Eight Ways to Ruin a Good Relationship

Eight Ways to Ruin a Good Relationship

Brace yourself, ladies: We are now entering Break up Season.

When You’re Not the Only One

When You’re Not the Only One

I had the perfect relationship. We met in my junior year of high school, and continued to date for the next year. While I had already lost my virginity prior to meeting my high school sweetheart, he had not (as far as I knew). During the first couple weeks of our relationship, I avoided the topic of virginity like the plague, as I didn't want to rehash my embarrassing and somewhat regretted first time.

Dealing With a Stage Five Clinger

Hanging out with someone new is always exciting. I absolutely thrive off those first few weeks of a budding relationship when all I can think about is the other person and wonder if he’s thinking about me, too. I love anxiously waiting for that phone call or text message after the first date that seals the deal that you two might have a future together

The first few sound OK: don't express jealousy, meet the best friend, be nice to her best friend, find out their history, etc. The steps all seem pretty normal and natural in any relationship, but don't be fooled.

MTV’s True Life: Six Best Episodes Ever

MTV’s True Life: Six Best Episodes Ever

I don’t know what it is about MTV, but I am addicted. Those crafty little sons of b*tches in Times Square know their target audience. They have me – and everyone else in the 12-30 age bracket – convinced that what we should really want to watch on TV are really attractive, dumb people saying really dumb (and totally unscripted) things.

EXpectations: Your Boyfriend’s Ex is Also His Best Friend?

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.

Is It Ever OK for a Guy to Be Jealous?

Most of the time I see jealous and overly possessive guys driving their girlfriends away. But, then again, if you don't act jealous at all, you look like you don't care. Sadly, I've seen women admit that it's nice to know that their guy is a little jealous or possessive of them.

That's a very long time, and we've been through a lot, including six month periods of not talking at all. Times where I was depressed and mopey and times where I was rebellious and happy.
