Tuffy Love Mixes Work and Romance

I don't want to lose an opportunity with a guy that I'm really into, but I don't want to mess things up either! What should I do?

Tuffy Luv Tackles the LDR

My question is... should I try this LDR thing? Or should we just go our separate ways until the logistics change--in an effort to avoid hurting each other and ruining what we could possibly have in the future? Either way, do you have any advice for how I should approach the situation? How to make an LDR work?

Sex in the News: Occupy Valentine’s Day

Dear friends who thought I would stop ranting about Valentine's Day once I was in a relationship, I'm sorry you were mistaken. I know I'm not the only person that rants about V-Day (coupled or otherwise). My new favorite Tumblr account, Occupy Valentine's Day, proves it.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Yourself: The Ultimate CC Sex Toy Review

I'm totally up for reclaiming Valentine's Day and making it about sexy self-indulgence. That's definitely something our society doesn't value nearly as much as it should; and I mean, who isn't in love with feeling sexy and sensual, whether it's for a partner or for yourself?

Friday Faves: The Difference Between Having Sex and Making Love

In the past six months, I've had sex. I've been laid. I f*cked. However, it's been a long time since I've made love, and I kind of miss it. Some people might argue that there's no difference - physically, they are the same. But emotionally, passionately, and mentally, the two deeds are very different.

Single Girl Society: Nicholas Sparks Is Not The Author Of Your Life

If you have yet to endure the torture that is a Nicholas Sparks movie marathon, I highly suggest you look into it purely as a service to yourself. Though the sappy movies seem out of place in single girl world, they’re actually a pretty effective learning tool – of what not to do.

Sex in the News: What Turns Women On?

Ogi Ogas and Sam Gaddam have been analyzing billions of web searches and found that women are more likely to seek out character-driven stories rather than explicitly visual scenes of sexual activity. Unlike men who need nothing more than a short porn clip (or a hot girl modeling a bra in a Victoria's Secret catalog) to get aroused, women require more of a story - and an emotional connection - to be stimulated.

Sex in the News: Spice Up Your Love Life

Oysters, chocolate, and green M&Ms chili. No, I'm not listing off ingredients for a (seemingly disgusting) recipe; I'm listing off well-known aphrodisiacs, AKA foods that allegedly get you in the mood to get freaky with yo bad self (and your partner). Well, get excited peeps, because there are a few new frisky foods to add to that list.

According to a new study titled, "He Loves me, He Loves Me Not... Uncertainty Can Increase Romantic Attraction," women are more attracted to men when they can't tell how much the men like them.

Men vs. Women: What Each Gender Really Thinks About V-DAY

Valentine's Day is right around the corner which means you're either spending way too much time debating if your not-boyfriend-boyfriend is going to take you on a date or you've already picked out the sweatpants you're going to wear and the tub of ice cream you're going to eat. Or are you? Our galpals over at Tressugar conducted a survey about what each gender thinks about February 14th.

21 Things It’s Totally Ok to Do After a Breakup

The first time I read this headline, I thought it was referring to celebrity breakup reactions and I'm like "OMG, someone else has clinical troubles when a quality celebrity couple break up". Then I realized it was referring to your own breakup.

5 Must-Haves for a Good Boyfriend

Sometimes I think we should just rename winter the season of love. When the cold weather comes in, it seems like couples just come out of the woodwork....or snowbanks. Suddenly they are holding hands in every store, making out on the sidewalks, and sharing kisses between sips of coffee at Starbucks.

The Weekly Ten: Best Movie Kisses of All Time

On Wednesday, I sat down after a long day of work, classes, and caffeine to find the only thing that could turn my day around waiting for me. My Glamour magazine had arrived. Eagerly, I sat down to indulge in some horoscope reading and horror story retelling. But before I even reached the cover story on Fergie I was sidetracked by something else entirely.

The Post-Grad Journey: Keeping In Touch

College introduced me to my best friends (who ended up not being my best friends senior year, but oh well), girls that compulsively wore Uggs and North Face jackets to class, stereotypes unknown in high school (hello frat boys), frenemes, coffee buddies, and classroom peers, and a few boys I wish I never met.

Duke It Out: Soul Mates

We've all killed a few hours (*cough*Calculus*cough*) imagining that amazing guy that would somehow walk into our lives - you know, the one with the suave of George Clooney, the charm of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the abs of Ryan Kwanten (hello, Jason Stackhouse!) - and magically turn all those microwave-ramen-days into a romantic comedy dream.

College Relationships Can be Fun

So after months of being "more than friends" you've made your relationship official. Like, Facebook Official. Your parents kinda know you're seeing someone and you definitely know you have someone to call after a drunken night at the bars.

Guys Are Romantic, Girls Are Crazy?

Obviously, most girls will agree that The Notebook is the most romantic movie of all time. We love the passion, the romance, and idea of ever-lasting love. We cry every. single. time, we watch it. We want our very own Noah, a guy who wants us badly enough that he'll dangle from a Ferris wheel just to ask us out.

Romantically Challenged

I think I may have a serious problem, and I don’t think I am the only woman to have it. No, I’m not pregnant. No, I don't have any sort of STI. I am just romantically challenged.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: It’s Good to be Loved

There's nothing quite like the feeling of being loved. Not even fresh, hot chocolate chip cookies (with a little extra raw dough on the side) gives you the same warm, comforting feeling of knowing that someone out there really, really loves you. And that someone can be anyone: a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a best friend, your dog. It just feels good to be loved.

Duke It Out: Valentine’s Day?

Ok I know what you're thinking, "ugh, another Valentine's post". You're probably as sick of hearing about this lovey-dovey holiday as I am (seriously, they put up the Cupid decorations on New Years Day!) but I think it's about time we really had it out on this one. Valentine's Day - do or don't?

My Ideal Valentine’s Date

Valentine's Day sure does have a way of sneaking up on me and my singleness every year. And I'm not sure how it happens, seeing as the heart-shaped candy has been out since December. But while I may be forced to cuddle up with my pup come Sunday, it turns out that most people - single or taken - would actually prefer it!

Intro to Cooking: Romance Your Sweetie with Some Fondue

As a foodie and aspiring chef, I pay a lot of attention to food. And in my life I've found that there are three kinds of cooks in the world: 1. Those who turn anything edible into sheer brilliance just from their touch. 2. Those who can follow directions pretty well and make things that taste OK....

Coupled. On Valentine’s Day

I've always hated Valentine's day. Mainly because for a good 90% of my life, the only thing I got on Valentine's Day was a teddy bear and chocolates from my mom. While she meant well, it wasn't exactly a self esteem booster in high school when all the other girls were getting roses in homeroom from their sweethearts.

Valentine’s Day Gifts Under $30

V-Day season is upon us again, and even though I’m in a relationship this year, I still feel like I want to punch people whenever I see little red hearts dotting store windows. I’m not a big proponent of the “show your love for someone by throwing money at him” school of thought. I am, however, all for gifts that are thoughtful, useful, and CHEAP. Hearing me out? Read on.

Bad Advice Women Get: Let Guys Be Guys

Because I spent kindergarten through 8th grade at a single-sex school, I didn’t have too many interactions with guys until I was about 14. That means that for much of my life, most of the stuff I “knew” about people with Y-chromosomes came from poring over the pages of mags like Seventeen and Glamour.
