The Don’ts of Having “The Talk”

So you want to take that next step with your boy toy. You're ready to be exclusive, yet you're a bit nervous about having "the talk'" with him. Well I'm definitely no relationship guru, but I can surely think of a few ways to absolutely ruin the moment.

This Holiday Season, Say Sayonara To Technology

Receiving a text message gives me a blissful, momentary high. A day without access to the internet is a sad day. If a couple of days go by and I haven’t signed onto Facebook (like that ever happens), I get antsy and feel out of the loop. This loathsome habit isn’t exactly an insightful revelation that came from deep soul searching or a problem unique to myself.

Sexting 101 – Yes, It’s a Real Class

Apparently ridiculous college courses are the new trend on campuses all over the world. I’d go so far as to call them “unnecessary,” but the 440 people who just enrolled in Potsdam University’s e-mail flirtation class would beat down my door (or fill my inbox...) in disagreement. Yes, you read that right- one German university is actually offering a master’s course on how to flirt via modern technology.

Would You Rather…

Would You Rather go to the bathroom at the end of an amazing date and realize your nipple had been showing the whole time thanks to your new low cut top OR realize you sent your fantastic date a text, meant for your best friend, describing all the graphic things you wanted to do to him?

Web Spy: Soshiku

A few years ago, Andrew Schaper was a high school student with the same organization problems I have. In order to solve these problems, he created Soshiku, a website that helps you manage and keep track of all your school assignments.

The 5 Douchiest Ways to Dump Someone

Ah, getting dumped- we've all been there, and it's not pretty. Whether it was a long-term, serious relationship or a fling in which the end was inevitable, getting broken up with sucks. A lot. But even more pathetic than the subsequent week spent downing ice cream, getting incoherently drunk off boxed wine, and sobbing to your friends is the way in which some dudes choose to perform the dumping.

Single. And Tired of the Technology Confusion

Like any CollegeCandy girl, I am never far away from my cell phone. And if I'm not on my phone, I'm on my computer. And sometimes I'm on both at the same time. While watching TV. I'm a technology addict, but who isn't? Cell phones, wireless Internet and text messaging have made our lives so much easier to live. Except, of course, when it comes to dating.

An Open Letter To Obnoxious Texters

Dear Obnoxious Phone Users of the World: While I will never deny that my cell phone has allowed me the opportunity to amuse myself during a boring class, I understand that there is a time and a place for texting.

Weekly Ten: She’s Just Not That Into You

This week, I'm breakin' it down for the boys out there. Myself, and many CollegeCandies are not big fans of He's Just Not That Into You. I do think the book has some valid points, but it's way too over the top. So I've decided to write a rebuttal and tackle the ten signs that She's Just Not That Into You.

Girl Wins $50,000…For Texting

Apparently, there is an awesome summer competition that I might actually have a chance at: the National Texting Championships. Tasks include texting while blindfolded (uh, sleep/drunk texting basically - done deal) and texting while maneuvering through a moving obstacle course (texting while walking - done deal).

Technology Makes Me Hate People

I'm addicted to technology. If I'm not at my computer something is very, very wrong with me then I'm checking my Facebook/email/Twitter/stock updates on my iPhone. I text when I drive, when I work, and even when I'm in the same house as my roommates. I can't even fight with a friend face to face anymore.

Transit Workers Aren’t The Only Ones Who Need a Texting Ban!

We all know that texting while drunk is a horrible idea (can we say misspelled embarrassment, much?), just as much as drunk dialing. However, texting while doing other things can prove to be even more dangerous.

The Morning After: Pillow Fight!

I hadn’t known John* very well, so when I got a text at 11pm saying “I’m bored, come hang out” I should have immediately seen the booty call red flag. Especially because we had set up a first date for the next night, but John was hot and he cracked me up so I was excited to see him.

The Pissed List: Spring Break Homework(?!)

I like to think of myself as a pretty easy going gal and try not to sweat the small stuff. But sometimes (ok, maybe slightly more often) the general cluelessness, carelessness and overall stupidity of some things and or/people really gets to me. I find that venting is the most efficient way to rid myself of the stress
