Remember the days when a chaste woman wore a white wedding gown and saved herself for the honeymoon? Me neither. Times are changing, and so are society's views on sex. Just look at prime-time television.
I’m not a scientist, nor am I a statistics analyzer, but I’d be willing to bet the majority of lies embellishments you’ve told recently have been directed at the men in your life. That’s just the way it goes. You hit college and suddenly the dating field is a battleground. It’s every girl for herself and if you’ve got to fib your way into the arms of Mr. Wonderful, then so be it.
I met him my first night of college. Although not the fairytale every girl imagines, we hit it off in the basement of a fraternity house. It was a passionate, whirlwind love affair that lasted about a month. Long story short, we don’t speak any more. I took it as a learning experience about relationships and the healing process was not easy.
Lent is the period following the bead-bonanza of Mardi Gras which encourages celebrating all the good things in life, before giving up your biggest bad habit for 4o days. It starts on Ash Wednesday and ends on Easter, just in time for animal-shaped candy and chocolate binges to end the ordeal. In the meantime, I’ve come up with not one, but nine things that any college girl, including myself, could live without until then.
Relationships can be great — always having someone to cuddle with, vent to, and share your favorite things with, but unfortunately things don’t always go as smoothly as planned. Sometimes once you get to know a person — once you spend more than a few month’s worth of sexy nights with them — you realize that maybe things aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.
Living with other human beings is hard. Like really hard. And sometimes if it's your best friend, it's even harder. How do you tell someone you love that they need to do their own dishes and turn the TV volume down and stop having loud sex every single night. We feel you. In fact, we are you and that's why we're giving you some solutions.
Why is that women stay with their abusers? A little less than two years ago, I certainly couldn't have told you the answer to that question. Now I can. And that's because I did.
I don’t need to tell you what a whore is. In fact, you have probably already seen the bottom half of her ass sticking out of her way-too-short “dress.” She’s the one slurring her words at the club or messing around in the upper bedroom at the house party. We all know what she is (not) wearing and whom she has slept with.
College moves fast. One second you're a freshman wandering around the campus with a lanyard and the next second you're crossing the stage and collecting a diploma.
MLK Day is almost here and for those lucky people who get the day off, we put together a fun-filled list of ways to make the most of your mini-vacation.
When I tell people that my boyfriend is in the Army, I usually am met with the same response: “Oooh really? I don’t know how you do it. I couldn’t be with someone in the military.”
New Year’s Eve…you either love it or hate it. True, it doesn’t usually live up to expectation, there’s never been a year that everyone makes it to midnight, and you don’t always have someone to kiss. But there is champagne…God, is there champagne. But despite all the inherit glitz and glam that comes with ringing in January 1st, there are still those few annoying people who manage to ruin your night…
It's usually about mid-August, after a summer of humid hair messes and chaffing, I am begging Mother Nature to let winter come. I want to be able to not start dripping the second I step outdoors, I’m bored of all my summer clothes and overall just over the season in general.
Neverending class work, nonstop relationship (or lack thereof) shiz, grad school applications, a dwindling bank account...the day-to-day worries of our college years often weigh us down. But too often, we stress about the big issues and totally forget about the little things that make our daily routines bearable...or even great!
Wingwomen are the future. Whereas most women are hip to the movements of wingmen, wingwomen are the stealth operation of the “game," and the key to successful mingling between the sexes. And not just for the guy we might be wingin' for; for ourselves, too!
