How To Turn Down A Date

How To Turn Down A Date

There are infinite amount of ways to ask someone out because there are infinite amount of situations that it can come up in. And for as many ways that there are to ask, there are as many ways to reject. You could probably write it as an equation: X number of attempts = X number of rejections which can be rewritten as X attempts to procreate = X number of ways to get kicked in the nut sack.

Friday Faves: Am I Too Picky?

Friday Faves: Am I Too Picky?

Someone once told me that the reason I’m still single is because my standards are too high. I laughed in her face, flipping through a mental catalog of the disgusting creatures who’ve woken up in my bed. “Au contraire,” I told her. “I think my standards are non existent.”

When “Not Interested” Just Isn’t Enough…

When “Not Interested” Just Isn’t Enough…

Have you ever been at the receiving end of some romantic advances you just weren’t that into? Did you try to throw out subtle clues that “short and middle-aged with two kids and alimony payments” wasn’t your type? Did this dude just not quite get it?

The Post-Grad Journey: And The Journey Begins

The Post-Grad Journey: And The Journey Begins

Originally, I thought I wanted to attend graduate school and work towards a higher degree in English literature. I spent the entire fall semester working on taking the GRE exam, filling out graduate applications (and spending major money on sending them out!), and writing the most intense essay of my undergraduate career to send along to my program choices.

Tuffy Luv Sez: Fear of What Now?!

Tuffy Luv Sez: Fear of What Now?!

Dear Tuffy Love, I have a major crush on my RA. I know it's wrong and the chances of something happening are almost zero, but I can't seem to get rid of these feelings. He is super hot and funny and sweet and sooo cool. The problem is (other than the fact that he's my RA) that he's a senior and I'm only a freshman. I don't know what to do.

Single. And Addicted to the Chase

Single. And Addicted to the Chase

I just went on a date with a guy who blathered on about himself (which is only okay when I do it!), and referred to women as, and I kid you not, “dumb bitches.” Since said date last Friday, he has not called me. And I really, really hope he does.

Dating In The Dark Makes Us All Look Shallow

Dating In The Dark Makes Us All Look Shallow

So ABC’s new show, “Dating in the Dark,” is weird. Like, really weird. Three girls and three guys meet in the pitch dark, often make out, and then get to see one another. They then have to decide if they want to go on actual dates with the people they have just seen

“He’s Just Not That Into You” Ruined Me

“He’s Just Not That Into You” Ruined Me

I remember when my best friend handed me a well-worn copy of He's Just Not That Into You. I had been dealing with a rather strange relationship involving a boy who loved to spoon and cuddle, but had zero interest in trying to jam his tongue down my throat.

Miss Manners: “Can I Have Yo Numba?”

Miss Manners: “Can I Have Yo Numba?”

I’m sure every sexy CC reader has gotten the awkward “Can I have yo numba?” from a not so appealing guy. While some of you are fine with flat out saying “No,” I’m looking to all the other ladies who decide to give up their numbers (or more...) “just to be polite.”
