10 Ryan Gosling Transformations, 1000 Swoons

Whether you fell for him as Noah Calhoun in The Notebook, or rewinded Crazy Stupid Love just a few too many times to see his abs that Emma Stone says must be photoshopped, Ryan Gosling is just someone that I think we all wish would do an actual Win a Date With Tad Hamilton-type deal.

Ryan Gosling Is Totally Overrated (PS: Happy Birthday)

Sure, his face ain't that bad and he seems like he'd totally be down for some post-sex spooning. But, hey girl, guess what? I'm just not that into it.

I Want a Boyfriend [Friday Faves]

Having a boyfriend brings about a sense of pride and accomplishment. It gives us all feelings of worth, self esteem and validation. Oh, and a serious case of the butterflies.

While romantic kisses in real life never seem to quite measure up to the ones on the silver screen, one can always dream. We see these ridiculously romantic kisses and get goosebumps hoping some guy will pull us out into the rain and lay one on us.

While Mother Nature may still be busy making up her mind, one thing is for certain: spring is here. It’s safe to say we can finally store our UGGs away for the season and bring out our flip-flops and dresses from the closet.

Sundays Are For Procrastinating: Before They Got the Roles

What's really incredible to me is being able to see my favorite actors' talents shine even without the help of the Hollywood treatment. Rachel McAdams' screen test for The Notebook has to be one of the best I've seen, but there are tons of celebrity audition tapes out there. More than enough to procrastinate for hours...

Couples That Make Us Love Love

So let's be real, we all cried a little bit when we found out Brad and Jen were splitting, and some of us are still sticking pins in our Angelina Jolie voodoo dolls not over it.

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.

The 10 Hottest Chick-Flick Guys of All Time

Even though we usually tear up (or start flat-out bawling, depending on your current romantic situation), no girl can resist the chick-flick. Or, more accurately, the dreamboat main characters that make our hearts swoon for 90 minutes (and then again when we watch the DVD alone on a Friday night and cry into a bowl of Thai food). Those boys are just so...perfect.
