From sharing a glance in a crowded New York City train to accidentally bumping hands down the street, people forge little connections with strangers every day. These sweet ads on Craigslist prove that love at first sight really does exist. Plus, a revenge story gone viral that you just have to read about. It's all in our weekly roundup of love, sex and relationship news!
Times are tough right now and holidays are right around the corner and so are lots of expenses. Every one of us is scratching our heads and trying to figure out ways to bring in some extra cash. You may need extra money to buy gifts or just to pay the rent.
by Panty Parade / Off Go the Panties Drunken dialing while stone, cold sober may sound like an anomaly, but I assure you, it does occur. The moments when I’m all alone and wishing I was not and trying to make the best of the situation with my moist fingers or vibrating toy sneak up and take hold. I get it in my head that it’s a good idea to reach out to a lover or friend to see if he could come over. Maybe we could hang out and drink a few beers?
by Panty Parade / Off Go the Panties Waking up disoriented in a strange hotel room sounds like the beginnings of an urban legend. Maybe it was because I hadn’t had all that much to drink the night before OR maybe because my dog was there beside me OR maybe because my host had left hours earlier—but I did not find WELCOME TO AIDS scrawled in lipstick on the bathroom mirror or a stranger soaking in an ice-filled bathtub with a recently removed kidney. I did find a few spent condoms in the trash.
If you ever find yourself completely bored AND horny AND without a date on a night when you REALLY want a date . . . . Then I sort of recommend checking out the Craigslist personals. Mind you, this is not a full fledge referral. In fact, based on my recent experience with answering a dozen advertisements on CL, I would have to say I’m only mildly lukewarm, half-heartedly encouraging you to try it. Want to know why? Because the men there are not really looking for what they say they want. I know—confused men on the Internet?—surprise!
We bought our first lottery ticket a few months ago when the jackpot was close to $315 million. We won two dollars. It was disappointing, as the lottery usually is – you start to fantasize about what you would do with that much money, but in the back of your head you know your chances are impossibly slim. Not so with this lottery!
Airports are awful these days. They're crowded with people who aren't sure where they need to go and don't understand that you need to take your shoes off while going through security. And don't even get us started on the creepy pat-downs from complete strangers who get to do so because they're wearing uniforms...
Gone are the days when you had to take pop quizzes and standardized tests, and you couldn't be happier. The last time you remember using a pencil to fill in a little circle on paper was when you asserted that yes, you are over 18 and (unlike the tanning mom's daughter) old enough to use a tanning bed.
Something tells us if you're looking to cheat without getting caught, you tread carefully. You don't shout it from the rooftops or joke about it with your friends. You also don't explicitly post your intentions on a free, easily accessible website like Craigslist. Well, this guy didn't get the memo.
Online dating experts are always stressing that you should know how to sell yourself to a potential match. This means listing your best qualities in your profile and posting photos that make you look like a fabulous catch. This does not mean that you should refer to yourself as a "lazy cow."
Sometimes you may find yourself whining to your other single friends, "Why don't people want to date me? I'm cool, I'm funny, I dress well..." And then the conversation ends there, probably because you realize how self-involved you sound.
Ladies, Have you ever been made to feel silly, stupid or simple when trying to buy a car? You are not alone, and even though women make up a full 51% of auto purchases in the US, and influence 96% of all car sales, the majority of car dealerships are still sub par when it comes to treating women fairly.
A 22-year-old woman in Boston needs your help. She needs to stop eating her favorite cookies, Cool Mint Oreos, and getting a date is the only thing that will make her stop!
The other night as we walked home from work, we heard a young woman say to her friend, "My mom asked me what I want for Christmas. I told her, 'Can you buy me a boyfriend? You know, if you see anything tall or handsome.'" That really cracked us up. But this... this isn't as funny.
Surprisingly, or maybe unsurprisingly, some singles are looking for temporary relationships for the holiday season. Apparently, it's fine to be single all year long, but when Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever your holiday jam is rolls around, you best be coupled up, sister. And since you can find pretty much everything else on Craigslist, you might as well find a short-term fella to bring home to mom and dad.
