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?
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
