I don't want you to be a woman ensnared by a toxic man (or woman—this book is for anyone, people), just because you didn't realize he was toxic. Neither does Dr. Glass. That is why the world needs this tome, because these men are harder to identify than you'd think. If in doubt, here are seven signs you might be dealing a toxic man.
So, you’ve found yourself treading into that oh-so-vulnerable territory of becoming sexually active again after a bit of a dry spell. Perhaps you’re cautiously re-entering the dating scene after ending a long-term relationship. Or maybe you’re eager for things to get hot and heavy sex after being out of the swing of things for a bit. Stress. Kids. Work. Tension. We’ve all been there.
Whew. The Major League Baseball season is opening up today* and not a moment too soon, as the college basketball season came to a close a scant 36 hours ago and life would be awful if we just had the NBA and NHL to glance at over the rim of a pint glass.
by Julie Robinson He saw me before I saw him, so he may have even been watching me for a while sitting at the bar thinking about getting up the nerve to come over and talk to me. When he did make the call, got me to answer, and ambled on over, the first thing I noticed was the pancake make-up and blush. A split second after that I noted very bad, old hair plugs. On the other hand, it could have been a poorly constructed wig.
So you met this guy, right? And you went on a really awesome date. What better way to cap off a great night with a romp in the bedroom ... or not. Sometimes, having The Sex on the first date is just a bad idea.
by Julie Robinson I found myself naked and in bed with Andrew a mere four hours after meeting him. I joined him for lunch on a rooftop terrace six blocks from my house. The first thing I noticed was that I was about three inches taller than him in my super-cute high heels, but he was so handsome it didn’t matter in the slightest.
I shared with you the first 5 ways to slow down your path to love. I received so much amazing feedback and shares about your aha’s, so I’m super excited to share the last four “NOT-to-do’s”. 6. Leaky Energy (aka Friends With Benefits)
Oh, the joys of dating. The extreme anxiety, the self-doubt, the need to check your inbox in the middle of the night just to see if anyone in particular has responded ... it can be a passive-aggressive romp through personal hell. Then again, I hear it can also be a wonderful adventure that will lead you to your soul mate.
I'm currently sitting on the couch across from boyfriend, not wearing any makeup, hair thrown on top of my head and in full transparency, not wearing any pants. Mr. Wonderful over there is enthralled with the Lakers game on TV and trying quite intently to get something out of his teeth. It's pretty hot, let me tell you.
by Julie Robinson Living in Colorado, we all hear about bear sightings pretty regularly. Most of the time these big, beautiful creatures lumber into backyards or campsites in search of People Food. Attacks are rare, but when they do happen, the bears end up being “destroyed.” I’ve never completely understood why eating a peanut butter sandwich left in a cooler warranted the death penalty, but that’s the policy.
If you know Anthony Davis is No. 1-seed Kentucky's freshman phenom or that you should never count Tom Izzo's Spartans or Coach K's Blue Devils out, this is for you. Reasons guys should date ladies who love sports. (But we can still send it out to dudes en masse as a reminder...)
by Julie Robinson What can you do solo? Can you go out to eat? Enjoy a glass of wine at a patio bar full of people? Watch a movie in the theater on a Saturday night? Attend a concert or sporting event? Normally, I prefer to go to bars with friends, but last Friday that wasn’t an option so I methodically applied my make-up, put on an Audrey Hepburn black dress, donned some heels, and set out on my own. . . .
