Spanx is quickly becoming to shapewear what Kleenex is to tissues. It starts with a bit of a paradox; tight clothes look terrible on a person with a little extra weight BUT extremely tight under-clothing can be used to masquerade that plump.

Every time I get in a new relationship, I get comfortable... too comfortable. That comfort leads to weight gain. But why do I, and many, many poor, poor people, gain weight while we're dating? Is nesting going to be the death of us all?
According to films, television programs, comic books, daguerreotypes, cave drawings and divinations from wishing wells, your next door neighbor, coworker or even husband could very well be a SECRET AGENT. Spies are many things, charming, capable, physically adept, but mostly they're terrific liars. The same penchant for misdirection that makes a guy top-notch in the espionage game makes him absolutely horse plop in the awesome boyfriend department.
As a resident of New York City and a fan of professional athletics, I'm duty-bound to somehow comment on the "Linsanity" currently taking place with the New York Knickerbockers. Jeremy Lin, a Harvard graduate, has begun starting for the Knicks and taken the hearts of New Yorkers. But there have been some "racist" bumps along the way. Is having an Asian fetish racist? Here's how to tell if a guy has one
I get it, I get it. Your guy is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. Good for him. Good that he's a guy who's not into stuff or just gets the stuff that he likes. Good. For. Him.
Contrary to what you've heard, most men don't want to date their mothers. And, while we may want someone to take care of us while we're under the weather, we don't want you to see us vulnerable until we're ready for it. So, keep in mind that your guy may not be sick of you, he might be literally sick. With the cold or a flu.
Some call it the final frontier. Whereas the vagina is the entry point of life, the anus is the terminus of the human digestive process. The alpha and the omega. Yet this rear entry (exit, really) holds a mystique and allure that 995 of the 1,001 Arabian nights can't even sniff. Is it the taboo? Is it the fit? Is it a power thing? Whatever the case, you can count me out.
Sometimes being told what to do is really nice. It's not that it divorces you from the consequences. But being told exactly what to do can take the thinking out of something you clearly don't want to do. However, being on the business end of a constant stream of critiques, veiled orders, words to the wise and "helpful" hints is a major bummer. It's not just ladies who nag, fellas do too — but we call it carping, hectoring and emotional battery. We like to say, "All's fair in love and war," but if the Geneva Convention makes it illegal to pull out someone's fingernails to get them to spill when the next attack is coming, it stands to reason that telling someone to hang up their polo four times in one week. Nagging equals torture.
The traditional wedding season is not long from running its course this summer (and get ready to put your white pants and shoes away while you're at it) but I have some advice for you anyway as some of your "cheapskate" friends will sneak a wedding in during a fall or winter month. Whenever the wedding may be held, you should strongly consider going stag.
Anthony Weiner and Brett Favre proved a few things. First of all, even fairly smart dudes and legendary athletes do dumb stuff. Sometimes they throw horrible interceptions, sometimes they think yelling the loudest will make people hear you better and sometimes they send unbidden images of their bodies to people. Here's how you can avoid making a real boner when it comes to texting and tweeting scandalous photos to people.
