The Top 10 Things I'm Learning from Dating an Asshole [Diary of the Undateable]

I think that I finally ended it. I said goodbye to Carlos for the umpteenth time a few weeks ago. Over a sporadic text message convo, he told me that he doesn't talk to me as much as he used to because he's scared that I'll fall in love with him. Keep in mind that this was about a week after I laid everything on the table and confessed how I felt about him – crazy in like.

10 Reasons Drake Would Be The Worst Boyfriend

One of my favorite ways to pass the time is to relentlessly mock the rapper formerly known as Wheelchair Jimmy. While I genuinely enjoy his music, I can't help but notice that he seems maladjusted, dysfunctional, emotionally immature, and generally pretty unattractive as a potential beau. Without further ado, my reasons for believing that if Drake were to approach you, you should flee.

Tuffy Luv Says He Doesn't Want A Relationship

Dear Tuffy Luv, I apologize in advance for this being long and probably confusing. Okay. My boyfriend and I have been together for a year and a couple months, and it's really great. We've always had a long distance relationship; a couple weeks after we started dating, he moved 5 hours away for an internship.

True Story: I Was in an Emotionally Abusive Relationship

I'll never be able to pinpoint the exact moment when my relationship with Chris started to become unhealthy. It could have been as early as the moment I met him. It could have been the first time he criticized my weight. It could have been when he started controlling who I could hang out with. It could have even been the very first time he called me a "stupid slut."

Ask a Dude: Am I a Trophy Girlfriend?

Dude, I am dating this guy who everyone else thinks is this amazing guy. And I guess from what they see, he is pretty amazing. He is constantly telling me how beautiful I am, how wonderful I am, and how lucky he is. Now, that's all great and sh*t, but after hearing it 24/7, I stop believing him. Is something wrong with me? I guess I should tell you a bit more…

Ask A Dude: Why Is He Treating Me Like Crap?

Dear Dude, I'm a first year college student. I'd never been in love...until recently. I met this guy in October and he seemed like everything I always wanted--cute and smart and boy, could he make me laugh. It wasn't long before I started seriously falling for him. Then, the snowball began to spin out of control.

Tuffy Luv Breaks It Down

I've been with my boyfriend for a little over a year and I love him. That is something that must be understood first and foremost. However, over the past couple of months I keep thinking about breaking up with him. He is immature, selfish, and inconsiderate. He has never bought me anything for my birthday, Valentines Day, Christmas, Sweetest Day, or our anniversary.

Ask A Dude: I’ve Got a Bad Boyfriend

Dear Dude, I have been with my boyfriend for over 6 months now. At the beginning, we were both very happy. But lately, I am miserable. He goes through random bouts of being depressed about everything, and then short spouts of being extremely pumped and into life. I love the latter.

So Your Boyfriend Kinda Sucks…

Do you ever put your foot down and say, “I can’t be with someone who…”? If you’re dealing with a guy who doesn’t care about your O, I’m not alone in saying that’s grounds for giving him the boot. Emotional cheaters are sometimes worse than ones who physically go out and whore around, so just say no to them, too.

And You Thought Your Relationship Was Bad

Girl: "I have a boyfriend." Guy: "I have a goldfish." Girl: "..... What?" Guy: "I thought we were talking about things that don't matter."

Tuffy Luv Sez: Get Over Your Crappy Friend

Dear Tuffy Luv, So freshman year is coming to close, but with a terrible ending. My best friend here has decided to go chase after the guy I had a history with/crush on at the beginning of the year. I've moved on from liking him ever since he clearly rejected me in February and have been able to settle on friendly terms with him even though he really left me in the dirt.

Dealing with a Friend in an Unhealthy Relationship

One of the hardest parts of being a friend to someone is actually being a friend to someone. It’s not like when we were little we were taught how to be a friend outside the realms of “sharing is caring.” There are certain sticky situations, like dealing with a friend in a bad or abusive relationship, where no how-to guide can instruct us how to be a true friend.

Single. And I Won’t Settle, Dammit

Earlier this week I logged on to Facebook and my news feed was overwhelmed with updates on my friends joining the group "I'm single - and you're going to have to be pretty amazing to change that!" While I normally dislike Facebook groups about random things, the title of this one hit home for me.
