All “Types” Have MY Vote [Diary of the Undateable]

I’ve always been warned to stay away from different kinds of guys – the ones that lie, the ones that steal, the ones that cheat, the ones that can’t commit. Guys from the “wrong” side of town…thugs. Guys that are from the “right” side of town…snobs. Football players. Frat boys. Writers. Readers. Artists. Fashionistos. And now? Politicians.

Parents Just Don’t Understand…Or Do They? [Diary of the Undateable]

I would’ve slapped my hair in a bun, pulled on snow boots and rolled out…but I heard my mom’s voice in the back of my head before I could walk out of the door. You’re wearing THAT? How will you meet a man dressed that way?! I sighed, took my hair down, put on some respectable shoes and went on about my day.

So What IS Closure, Exactly? [Diary of the Undateable]

I ended up texting him the last week of December with a simple but to-the-point message that said “you should probablyyy ask me to hang out soon.” I thought that I was thinking like a man. But I was actually thinking like an idiot. Carlos promised that he’d hit me up within the next few days – and I haven’t heard from him since.

Being Single’s Not So Bad [Diary of the Undateable]

Around this time of year, I think that single girls band together and unite in our single girly-ness. Not going to front – I did a little bit of hating and shading yesterday. But there was also comfort in the fact that I wasn’t alone in being alone.

Valentine’s Day For The Single Girl (Who Doesn’t Want To Have A Pity Party)

Legend has it that Valentine's Day became a thing because back in the day, in Rome, Claudius - the homeboy that ran the country - put a ban on all engagements and marriages because it was a time of war and he needed men to fight in his army. Well, St. Valentine wasn't having any of that...

Yes, I’m a Single Girl Who Likes Valentine’s Day

I like candy and I like writing cheesy valentines. I won't be decked out in pink or ask for heart nail art on my mani, but you won't find me crying in a bucket of ice cream to The Notebook either (but if you do any of those things that's totally fine!).

Frontin’ For His Friends and Followers [Diary of the Undateable]

One of my fav songs from 2003 is “Frontin’” by Pharrell. Not just because he looked totally hot in the video or because Jay-Z spit a few bars on the track…but because they break down the thought process of a guy who likes to pretend in front of his friends.

How to Survive New Year’s Eve When You’re Single

I feel like New Year's Eve celebrators fall into three camps: 1. The coupled-up, super excited girl. 2. The single, but desperately hoping for a midnight kiss person. 3. The single, but really just wanting to party with friends person. I'll say a quick hello to the coupled up people, but this post is not for you. It's for the single ladies.

Avoiding Holiday Awkwardness [Diary of the Undateable]

I can talk about my dating struggles to my friends, to my classmates and to you guys. But when my family asks me about them, it’s a whole ‘nother story. I don’t want to be the black sheep, the one that ends up being on receiving end of a blind date or constantly put on non-marital watch.

Our Thoughts on Justin Bieber’s New Single “Boyfriend” [Video]

I've never been a Bieber fan (cue the angry comments), but I think he's reached a new level of awful with this song. In the intro, he makes sort of an attempt at rapping, but it's more like a male version of the Ke$ha sing-talk. And then he starts singing, and from there the song pretty much turns into a Jesse McCartney ripoff.
