Conventional stereotypes say that women commit to men who can provide for a family. Since financial independence diminishes the need for a provider, wealthy women pursue younger, handsomer men who don't need to worry about supporting children. Basically, rich women are sugar mamas, while rich older women are cougars. But rich women don't want to be cougars; they want George Clooney.
In Texas, a license to wed will cost you $60, a long way since its start rate of $15.50, and its purpose isn’t to inconvenience engaged couples, but to encourage them to stay “twogether.” Turns out, most Texas couples are not into it.
Forget the old adage that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. The truth is that the way to a woman's heart is through her palate. There is no more powerful barometer of a man's potential as a boyfriend and in the bedroom than in how he seduces a woman's taste buds.
I recently had a flirtation with a guy whereby we debated the merits of using Dictionary.com versus the actual hard copy, old school, book version of the dictionary. And I realized, with some degree of alarm, that this felt familiar. That this—this courting by way of words—was not a one-time thing. It was a recurring thing. It was my thing.

It's holiday time again, which for me means lots of parties to go to ... solo. My first instinct is usually to try to snag a pal to bring with me to party crash, but recently, I was invited to a party where the host explicitly instructed guests not to bring a plus one. I was dreading showing up there, thinking it would be uncomfortable, but once I arrived, I embraced it and ended up having a great time. After I deftly extricated myself from a dull conversation with an awkward woman with a neck twitch, I hit it off with a group of dudes with nerdy glasses who shared my love of stupid dance moves. Needless to say, I have a new appreciation for going to parties alone. Here are some tips for making the best of a stag situation.
