"Lovesick" doesn’t just mean crying so hard after you have been dumped that you barf on your bed sheets. (Although, girl, I have been there. True story.) You can also be lovesick when you’re so engulfed in love for another person that being away from them makes you feel ill.
If you're like me, you gleeked out last night for the second season premiere of Fox’s hit show, Glee. It’s been three, long months without Finn Hudson’s face, Mr. Schue’s raps, and Rachel’s drama but now all is right with the world. We met the new football coach, androgynous Shannon Beiste, Rachel Barry 2.0, Sunshine Corazon, and blonde quarterback, Sam Evans, whose cover of "Billionaire" had me swooning. There were songs, slushies, and crack houses but, as always, there was love.
If you're like most women you probably hold back during sex sometimes because you aren't 100 percent confident about the way your body looks. If you're the type who switches off the light and dives under the covers before your husband can see you, then you may be missing out. When you spend time worrying about what body parts may be too soft, too jiggly or just plain ol' too big, you end up ruining your own good time (and his).

Thanks to a benevolent pastor's pilot project, newly-separated fathers living in Switzerland can have temporary shelter and a safe haven to recover from the trauma of their divorce. The shelter, which was opened by Andreas Cabalzar in late 2009, can house up to three fathers at a time. Cabalzar also designated two bedrooms for children of guests, who pay the equivalent of $166 per week to stay.
Say what you will about acclaimed philanderers' website Ashley Madison, but the proof is in the numbers—the site boasts a more-than-impressive 7 million members. So does founder and CEO Noel Biderman feel ethically conflicted about creating a portal for millions of roaming hands around the globe? Nope. Not at all.
A friend of mine, a guy who used to occasionally step out on his woman and hook up with other girls, had the strangest theory about the female species. “Women don't cheat,” he told me, when I asked if he was ever worried she was doing the same thing to him. “It's just not in their nature.” I just laughed.
