When I first find myself in the throes of a break-up, my body shuts down. Even the thought of food, at first, is difficult. My stomach is just as twisted as my heart, I find myself in my bed for too long, and honestly, when I do force myself to eat, I can't even keep it down. But once the first wave of despair lifts, and I'm able to think about food again, I indulge in my favorite, often made-up concoctions.
ANGRY SINGLE BLOGGER
Just when you think the world is full of love and sunshine and rainbows, yet another study comes along and smacks you in the face to prove otherwise. Turns out that a lot of men don't enter into commitments like marriage out of a genuine bond toward a woman — they seem to do it just because. Let's explore, shall we?
The first time I asked a guy to spank me in bed, he suggested I double up on my therapy sessions. When I asked him a second time, he did it — but in a half-assed way because it wasn't his thing. While I respect that, I knew that if I didn't get properly spanked at some point soon, I was going to lose it.
Men. The word alone evokes emotions of love, hate, annoyance, frustration and more. And why shouldn't it? In my experience, they're pretty much the hardest gender to get along with.
I recently read an article by an American living in Sweden. The single woman, who'd had more than a few romps with Swedish men, noted that Swedes are not only very much against condom use, but that some of them — even adult male Swedes in their 20s and 30s — don't even know how to put one on because condom use is so rare.
Well, well, well. It looks like online dating isn't as great as it's cracked up to be. And that's not surprising to me. Look around at your friends. How many of them have successfully found love online? Aren't there more horror stories than not?
If cheating itself isn't bad enough, now science confirms that cheaters, on top of being assholes, are also less likely to wrap it up before having sex with someone who isn't their partner. Gross! Let's just pour some (green, oozing) salt on that open wound, shall we?
Personally, I always knew that you could tell a whole lot about a person by just looking at their shoes. Dirty, beat-up Vans? Not dating that guy, or even touching him with any sort of length of pole. I'm glad that what I always knew has now finally been proven by science.
Recently, "Glamour" blogger Melissa Melms decided it was time to take douchiness to a whole new level with a post titled: "We Can't Be Friends Unless You Have a Boyfriend. I'm Serious…Kind of." Actually she is more serious than she is "kind of," as in her post she proceeds to basically toot about how great she and her relationship is, while her single friends are, well, lame.
Just days after announcing that sex is a "beautiful" and "magical" thing (because, you know, she didn't discover it that long ago), 19-year-old Miley Cyrus is engaged to her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth. Shall we start placing bets now as to how long these two will be married, if they even make it down the aisle? I'm totally serious
For starters, I love living alone. I love having my own space to go to when I need a break from a relationship. I love that I can indulge in my "single gal" behavior, which I will not get into as it's stuff a gal just does in private.
We all have our favorite sex positions. From vanilla ones like missionary to Kama Sutra-worthy ones that require skill, muscle and balance, there are hundreds of sexual positions from which to choose. If your life has been one of missionary, with the occasional doggy-style only on his birthday, it might be time to broaden your sexual position repertoire.
It's embarrassing how many phones I've gone through because I threw them in a fit of rage over a certain guy. It's also nothing to brag about that I've gone through most of my glasses because I've smashed them to bits in anger over the same guy, then, because that wasn't enough, I jumped on his guitar in my favorite heels and destroyed it.
Recently here at YourTango, relationships expert Julianne Cantarella gave her advice about what to do when a guy prefers texting to calling you on the phone. Along with pointing out that if you're anti-texting you should address it early on in the relationship, she also stated the following: "Texting can create a false sense of intimacy allowing you to believe that you're in an exclusive relationship when you really aren't."
Even if you're like me and oblivious to Hallmark holidays, you should know that today is Mother's Day. I mean, duh. Look around at all the people carrying flowers and taking their moms out for meals.
Remember when former Republican senator Larry Craig, who was always so anti-gay rights, got caught "tapping" his foot in a men's bathroom, looking for some man-on-man love? Hypocrite! Even more well-known is Ted Haggard, the crazy gay-hating evangelical Christian who, despite his sermons that condemned homosexuality, was getting busy with a male escort and doing crystal meth to boot.
