Few phrases are more easily misinterpreted than "We should hang out sometime." Such a simple statement only summons countless questions: First, is it an invitation or a polite suggestion? What does he mean by hang out? Does he mean hang out as pals or as something more? What was that tone of voice? What does he want us to do together? While it's a little awkward to ask someone directly whether or not we were just asked on a date, it can be even more embarrassing to misunderstand someone's intentions when you're out on the date (or non-date) itself.
Unvarnished.com, a user generated work review site that's still in beta, is kind of like the sleazy little sister to Linkedin.com. The site aims to help out employers with written reviews by co-workers of a person's actual performance on the job. Could this ruin a person's career and love life?

Redbook magazine editor in chief Stacy Morrison's new memoir, Falling Apart in One Piece (just out in bookstores), is a true confessional in every sense: Subtitled "One optimist's journey through the hell of divorce," the book begins just as Morrison's marriage begins to end. One minute she's swishing arugula through the salad spinner, and the next she's hearing her husband say, simply, that he's done. Here's her story.
It happens to the best of us. One day, we're eying regular guys as usual, and then BAM, we start crushing on someone who probably doesn't belong with us: our best friend's boyfriend, the dreamy part-time assistant who is barely of legal age, or the doctor for whom we are tempted to invent aches and pains. Thanks to the forbidden fruit factor, inappropriate crushes are often more potent than the average ones, and thus require special attention to either eradicate or indulge.

I love to travel, but my man stresses out if we go anywhere not reachable by subway. So after six years of togetherness, I tend to either travel by my lonesome or extend the rare trips we take together for a few days after he's gone. But we're going to Puerto Rico in a couple weeks. And as I feared, the bitching has already begun.
Megan Capone, 34, had some experience with online dating when she first messaged now-husband Jim Capone on Match.com. "I thought he looked like a model," said the social media and marketing consultant and blogger. "I wrote, 'I'm impressed, how about you?'" Jim, 37, had been on Match for about six months and was taking a break from the site when he got Megan's message. "I wasn't even looking at the time," said Jim, who works for a financial software company. "She kind of tracked me down." The duo discovered they lived only five minutes from each other in Dracut, Mass., and grew up in neighboring towns with rival high school football teams. They started emailing almost daily and chatting on the phone after a week. Even though he was interested, Jim made Megan wait for a date. "Something I learned over the years is to be patient," he said. "We paced ourselves." When they met in person, they went to Barnes & Noble, then to an ice cream shop. It was while eating their treats that an endearing goof made Megan realize Jim was something special.
