Friday Faves: Life After College – Group Dinner Hell

Nothing makes me want to curl up and die faster than an invite to a group dinner. From start to finish it’s an intensive game of twenty questions. Where should we go to eat? Do they have vegetarian options? Can you be there by 7 or not? Did you seriously invite her?

Good Friendships: A Guide

There are some unwritten rules of friendship we all know: Thou shalt hold her hair back when she is praying to the porcelain god after a long Friday night. Thou shalt never date her ex-boyfriend, brother or best male friend. Thou shalt never have to watch Say Yes to the Dress alone. Thou shalt risk your life to satisfy the drunken cravings of your BFF.

The 6 Girlfriends Every Girl Needs to Have

I think I blinked three times during the entire 147 minute showcase of Sex and the City 2. I didn't want to miss a single drool-worthy second of high fashion, I couldn't stop fathoming how well Aiden had aged and I didn't want to miss any of Carrie's one-liner snippets of advice. And while soaking it all in, I noticed something else.

Single. And Sick Of Talking About Guys

Yesterday, I had a Skype date with one of my old friends from high school. It's always fun to catch up with random high school acquaintances, but as I hung up after our chat, I was struck by the realization that all we had talked about was boys. That's it! I heard all about her new boyfriend and how cute he is, and she asked about all of my boy dilemmas.

When Friends Break Up…

So, I'm dealing with a really bad breakup right now. No, my boyfriend didn't dump me - that would require me to have had a boyfriend in the first place. But my very good guy friend did dump his very serious girlfriend and now I'm left in the middle.

A Single Girl’s (Tried and True) Guide to Valentine’s Day

On the dreaded day of February 14th, I used to be the cliché girl dressed in all black because I proclaimed Valentine’s Day to be a dumb holiday created by card companies to ruin the institution of love. But really, I was just bitter about that fact that I wouldn’t be receiving a single Valentine’s card, nor did I have anybody to give one to.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Let’s Say Thanks

Like most families, mine gathers around the dinner table on Thanksgiving and (after making fun of each other for a few minutes) shares what they are most thankful for that year. Growing up, I hated this tradition; it was so cheesy and lame. But now that I'm an adult, going around the table at Thanksgiving allows me to tell my family how much I love them...

Best Friends > Boyfriends

I’m a senior in college, single, loving it, and have just as many girlfriends as random sexual escapades (almost). So maybe I’m not having as much consistent sex as I’d like, but I am still getting my fill of lovin. I am absolutely in love with my girlfriends.

College Friends vs. High School Bonds

I remember going to college expecting to make some of the best friends of my life. It had always seemed that way -- you have nice high school friends, but gradually they fade out of the picture and your college friends dominate your life. Wasn't that the way it was supposed to be?

Best Friends for Never: 5 Girls To Avoid

They say college is where you meet your bridesmaids. I don't know who the hell "they" are, but it seems true enough. After four years of late night pizza runs, Friday night pre-gaming and makeup sessions, and spooning in tiny twin beds, you are bound to make those tight knit friendships.

Knock, Knock…Who’s There? Sexual Interruptions

You finally made it over to the bed. His shirt is off, your underwear is soaring across the room. The lights are dim. The bed is quickly being destroyed. Lips are locked and you’re ready for sexy time. And then you hear the tap, tap, tap at the door. Ah, interruptions during sex.
