Dating Makeover Challenge: From Ice to Nice, Day 5

The experts have shared a lot with you this week: the importance of smiling, the power of eye contact, the negative affects of texting in public, and the messages your body is sending. And now it's time to put it all together.

Dating Makeover Challenge: From Ice to Nice, Day 4

As much as I enjoy blabbing my mouth off from time to time, I've recently realized (with the help of Ms. Kira Sabin) that I need to pay attention to one of the most important aspects of dating there is: body language. It's so easy to close people off with your body. And the kicker? You don't even notice you're doing it!

Dating Makeover Challenge: From Ice to Nice, Day 3

Now, let's be honest for a second. In this day and age, everyone is hyper-connected so it's become totally normal and expected to be texting and calling and Facebooking no matter where we are and who we're with. But how are you supposed to apply the basics (smile + eye contact) when you're constantly looking at your stinkin' phone?!

Dating Makeover Challenge: From Ice to Nice, Day 2

Now that we've got our smiles down it's time to move on to a big next step: eye contact. Eye contact with a smile is the easiest way for someone to notice you and know that it is good to make the approach. Remember, if guys think they are going to be shut down, they just won't go there. It also exudes mucho confidence.

Dating Makeover Challenge: From Ice to Nice, Day 1

Everyone assumes the most attractive people get approached, but really it is the most confident and happy. Nothing is more powerful or attractive than a smile. Passersby (and that hottie in your Stats lecture) will wonder why you are so happy and want to find out. Who doesn’t want to hang out with the people who are having the most fun?

From Ice To Nice: The 5 Day Challenge

Ever have that friend that gets approached all the time? Sure, she may be pretty, smart or flirty but for some reason guys flock to her like white on rice. It may you leave you scratching your head and muttering under your breath “what is SO great about her?” You probably have friends that are funnier, smarter and prettier, yet she gets the guys.

Cosmo Says The Darndest Things: September Edition

If Jessica Alba's bodacious blow-out didn't catch my eye this month on the September cover of Cosmo, the giant 'Untamed Va-jay-jays' headline sure did. What the hell is an untamed vajay? Seriously, this isn't the Discovery Channel for body parts, Cosmo. Naturally (pun intended) I was gnawing at the bit to get inside the mag and get reading.

Cosmo Says The Darndest Things: February Edition

Cosmo's February issue had a lot of usefulless information, as per usual. Get excited! This month we learn how guys truly feel about nail decals (we know you’ve all been dying to know the answer to this.) Turns out 55% think they’re too over-the-top, while 45% say they’re fun and flirty. But I’m pretty sure 100% don’t really know what nail decals are.

My dearest Cosmo has always had a special affinity for body language analysis (I think they’ve done Speidi like 6 times). Now they’re taking it to the next level and making it all easy, convenient and user-friendly for you! Cosmo understands the trials and tribulations of dating, especially when we need to figure out the bizarre and complex behavior of the male species.

Is He Into You or Into Just Anybody?

How can you tell if the person you’re talking to is actually interested in you, or just interested in an interchangeable sex buddy to use later that night? You’re too special to be referred to as “hot girl with the big rack,” so learn how to tell which guys are genuinely interested, and which guys are playing their odds with every girl in the room.

Heidi Montag: At Least Her Weave Covered Her Face

Before we rip her apart, we’ll give Heidi the benefit of the doubt and let her have the stamp of approval for hair and makeup. Her face looked flawless and she had the smoky eye mastered. We always love her loose curls, and did even more so last night as they covered the fact that her lips weren’t moving at all.

So when are constantly faced with the awful decision of which D-List celebrity is more annoying, we make a list. Yes, this is a decision we feel the need to make on a weekly basis.
