Over the course of 4 seasons, the characters of Mad Men have had their fair share of romantic drama—and they've given us some great quotes about love along the way. We admit that a lot has changed since the smoke-filled 1960's (we would never pour a glass of whiskey at a business meeting or be able to pull of any of Joan Holloway's outfits). But matters of the heart never seem to change. We love these 10 quotes from the always-clever Mad Men... after all, nobody says it better than the wordsmiths of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.
Oh, hey, Lemondrop readers. I'm writing to you from the Mariana Trench–level depths of a reasonably significant hangover. The reason I tell you this is because I think I have some helpful information for those of you out there who also like to take a drink now again: The best way to combat a particularly rough day after is to Think Positively.
Contrary to popular belief, guys aren't satisfied with just getting laid. They want it to be good and exciting too. I know—so demanding. But I aim to please and with that in mind, I convinced a couple of guys I know to confess what they really wish women did more of in the sack.

According to a recent iTunes app store search, this clever application was among the top 50 downloads (it's since been replaced by the likes of DashboardAquarium and TeaTimer... yawn.)

The Frisky ran a story recently called "10 Signs He's A Womanizer." Our first reaction was that any guy being chased by a pack of women all chanting "You're a womanizer, womanizer, womanizer" is a pretty good indicator. Nonetheless, the Frisky goes on to make some valid and necessary points about some of our more sleazy fellow males. "The difference between a womanizer and a good man," they explain, "is a womanizer acts in this manner to get in your pants, not your heart."

Anyway, according to the calendar, almost a whole year has gone by since that day, and, I'm happy to say: so far so good. But all that could change next week when Drew and I go on our first ever road trip together to celebrate our anniversary.
