Maxim Says the Darndest Things: February Edition

All in all, this magazine makes me want to be a brand new woman. A woman that understands what men truly like in tools and snowmobiles, how to defeat Call of Duty Black Ops, where to find the best American bars and how to get laid and live forever.

Weekly Wrap Up: Chocolate Is (still) A Girl’s Best Friend

This week flew by faster than my entire college career has so far, and that is saying a lot. It felt like two days ago when I discovered my first 'Thirsty Thursday.' And wasn't it just yesterday when I was holding back confused tears as Ali chose her job and left Jake with only three women on The Bachelor? Yeah, I'm ashamed.

Single On V-day? It Could Be Worse… [VIDEO]

During any other time of the year, we may be loving single life and having a blast with our friends (or friends for the night...). But then something happens. February rolls around and pink and red decorative hearts start appearing everywhere, sending us into a fit of hysteria. We feel a sense of urgency that suddenly it is not OK to be alone.

What To Get Your Brand New Valentine

So, Valentine’s Day is 2 days away. Those who are part of a steady relationship have at least been dwelling on what to do for the holiday for a little while now, but what if you’re one of the people who thought you’d be spending the holiday alone and then, miraculously, you met someone, hit it off, and now you suddenly have a last-minute Valentine?

Is there anything sexier than a guy with a guitar (besides, of course, a guy with some drums)? We think not, which is why we're currently swooning over the boys of Young and Divine.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: It’s Good to be Loved

There's nothing quite like the feeling of being loved. Not even fresh, hot chocolate chip cookies (with a little extra raw dough on the side) gives you the same warm, comforting feeling of knowing that someone out there really, really loves you. And that someone can be anyone: a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a best friend, your dog. It just feels good to be loved.

Duke It Out: Valentine’s Day?

Ok I know what you're thinking, "ugh, another Valentine's post". You're probably as sick of hearing about this lovey-dovey holiday as I am (seriously, they put up the Cupid decorations on New Years Day!) but I think it's about time we really had it out on this one. Valentine's Day - do or don't?

Coupled. And Yes, I Hate Valentine’s Day!

There seems to be an unspoken February rule that if you have a boyfriend you are not allowed to complain about Valentine’s Day. I, for one, think this is bulls**t. I have a boyfriend, yes, but you know what? I hate Valentine’s Day. Haaaaaaate it.I hate it even more when I have a boyfriend than when I don’t!

A Single Girl’s (Tried and True) Guide to Valentine’s Day

On the dreaded day of February 14th, I used to be the cliché girl dressed in all black because I proclaimed Valentine’s Day to be a dumb holiday created by card companies to ruin the institution of love. But really, I was just bitter about that fact that I wouldn’t be receiving a single Valentine’s card, nor did I have anybody to give one to.

Would You Rather… Valentine’s Day Edition

It's the end of the world as we know it. First Washington D.C. gets the most snow they've seen in 90 years and then an earthquake hits Illinois?! WTF is going on? Is Mother Nature mad that she doesn't have a Valentine?

How to Celebrate Chinese New Years

Chinese New Year's is probably my favorite holiday of the year. Growing up, it meant a big feast with my extended family and receiving lei-see (lucky red envelopes filled with money) from my aunt and uncle. Food and money - this holiday doesn't get much better!

My Ideal Valentine’s Date

Valentine's Day sure does have a way of sneaking up on me and my singleness every year. And I'm not sure how it happens, seeing as the heart-shaped candy has been out since December. But while I may be forced to cuddle up with my pup come Sunday, it turns out that most people - single or taken - would actually prefer it!

Show Yourself Some Love This Valentine’s Day

For us single girls, Valentine's Day can seriously suck. Even if you love being single, all the PDA (puke), listening to what your coupled friend's boyfriend did or (more likely) didn't buy them, and the concerned phone call from your mom checking up on you, gets real old, real fast.

Intro to Cooking: Romance Your Sweetie with Some Fondue

As a foodie and aspiring chef, I pay a lot of attention to food. And in my life I've found that there are three kinds of cooks in the world: 1. Those who turn anything edible into sheer brilliance just from their touch. 2. Those who can follow directions pretty well and make things that taste OK....

Pat yourselves on the back, everyone - we have officially surpassed another stressful week! And if you are a hopeless romantic like me, Channing Tatum is closing out the week with a bang (or a box full of tissues) in Dear John. And I. Am. Looking forward to it. Besides drooling excessively over Mr. Tatum's abs, we have a lot more to look forward to this weekend: dance parties, our last football Sunday for the season, and busting our minds for that perfect gift for a special someone.

Single. On Valentine’s Day

So I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Valentine’s Day is coming up. Yes, as we gratefully leave the frigid cold of January behind, we embrace the month of love...which leaves a frigid cold place in my heart. And as V-day creeps closer and closer with each passing day, I dread it more and more.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Significant Jerks

Coupled. On Valentine’s Day

I've always hated Valentine's day. Mainly because for a good 90% of my life, the only thing I got on Valentine's Day was a teddy bear and chocolates from my mom. While she meant well, it wasn't exactly a self esteem booster in high school when all the other girls were getting roses in homeroom from their sweethearts.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Both of You

What is Valentine’s Day really about? Romance? No. Chocolate? No again. Flowers? Absolutely not. Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is about spending two weeks trying to find the perfect gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend and often failing miserably.

Valentine’s Day Gifts Under $30

V-Day season is upon us again, and even though I’m in a relationship this year, I still feel like I want to punch people whenever I see little red hearts dotting store windows. I’m not a big proponent of the “show your love for someone by throwing money at him” school of thought. I am, however, all for gifts that are thoughtful, useful, and CHEAP. Hearing me out? Read on.

Single. And Missing the Little Things

When I broke up with my high school boyfriend I knew it would take some time to adjust to being single. I knew I would miss the big things about having a boyfriend, like, you know, having someone to celebrate Valentine’s Day with, but I had no idea that it would the dumb little things that I would miss the most.
