A Few Reasons Why He Won't Call You Back

It's happened to the best of us. We go on two or three seemingly perfect dates with the guy we've been obsessing over for the longest time, and then...nothing. No phone call, no texts, no anything! All communication ceases, and we're left wondering what the hell happened?

He Said/She Said: Explaining Women

So last week I listed off the 7 things about guys I really don't understand. At all. Like male genitalia.... why does it always look so....alien-like? The purpose wasn't so much to have someone explain them to me as it was to get a few virtual high fives from all my fellow confused ladies.

Sexy Time: Closed Mouths Don't Get Fed

In a utopian world, we'd never have to ask for anything, ever. The cosmos would see to it that all our needs were met without us having to put in any effort into it. Alas, in the real world, it doesn't work that way. If you want something, be it a raise at work or an extension on an assignment, you have to assert yourself. But that becomes especially harrowing when sex is involved.

Inside His Head: Are You His GF or His Booty Call?

As pathetic as women may feel admitting to devoting so much of their precious time to this topic, it doesn’t stop them from doing it constantly. Even the strong, confident women with healthy self-esteem find themselves in this exact situation. All logic and rationale goes flying out the window when they meet that one person who literally makes them blush with a simple hello.

Ask A Dude: I Think I’m Falling For Him

Dearest Dude, I am not a girlfriend type of girl. Or at least, I wasn't until now... I think. In college, the closest I came to a relationship was an 8-month hook up, who I'm pretty sure considered me his girlfriend, but I certainly did not consider him my boyfriend. I preferred hook ups and always made fun of the girls who obsessed over one guy and were clingy and freaked out over interpreting a simple text.

Technology Takes Relationships to a Whole New Level

It’s no surprise to say technology has completely changed the way we, as a society, come together. From Twitter to Foursquare, J-Date to Match.com, gone are the days of quainter communication. Forget about lying in bed twirling the phone cord around your finger as you trade campus gossip with your BFF....

Texting Is Not Communicating

In every dorm room and apartment I’ve shared with friends, I’ve wanted to get a communal landline and implement the message corkboard. In reality, Saturday afternoons were spent on the couch watching Housewives marathons and being jarred out of a trance as our cell phones vibrated and beeped. Todd says: “Nice 2 meet U last nite. Going out agn?” Mark says: “Wut up?”

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Custom Magazine Ad Envelopes

Technology is amazing, we can all attest to that (especially if you’re reading this online on the best website ever. I <3 the Internet.) But technology, has also made things, like the way in which we communicate, a lot less personal.

Sexy Time: Talk About It

I’ve been looking back on my sexual history lately and I’ve realized that I’m pretty lucky. Minus one or two “off” times, I can’t say I’ve had a lot of bad sex. While I try my best not to do a lot of comparing, I think I’ve found the difference between the good times and the not-so-good times – communication.

5 Things I Wish I Knew About The LDR

Now that I’m in an LDR (my first EVER), I wish someone had taken me aside and told me some things. Knowing what to expect would have made this giant change a whole lot easier on me, on my sanity and on my relationship. So that's what I’m going to do for all of you ladies, right now. Here are five things you should know before entering a long distance relationship that I have discovered in my experience so far.

Behind Every Relationship…Is a Struggle for Power

Whenever a new romance blossoms in my life, I can only enjoy it for so long before I start to fear the inevitable. Sure everything is rainbows and snuggles now, but what happens when you reach that certain point? You know the point I'm talking about; when things are more than casual, but neither of you are ready to discuss delving into a relationship quite yet.

An Open Letter To Obnoxious Texters

Dear Obnoxious Phone Users of the World: While I will never deny that my cell phone has allowed me the opportunity to amuse myself during a boring class, I understand that there is a time and a place for texting.

He Said/She Said: You Oughta Know

The point is, if I've learned anything from all my he said/she said-ing, it's that communication is key when it comes to the relationship between men and women. They can't read our minds and we can't read theirs. So I started thinking about all the things I've wanted to say to boys over the years - everything they need to know when it comes to us ladies - and I asked my guy to do the same.
