Run-ins with the ex: unbearable. Especially when it's obvious that you've gained 30 pounds from comfort eating, and haven't showered in at least a week. What can make this typically-traumatic experience better? A hot, new partner. A sexy escape plan.
Last Friday, Kate Major confirmed Hailey Glassman's claim that Jon Gosselin has a small package. In an interview with Life & Style magazine, Kate said, "I'm surprised he's so 'cocky' because down there he's definitely not." Supposedly, the former rivals are now pals, having laughed together over Jon's genital shortcomings. We're not convinced that Hailey and Kate 2.0 are the winners here. Jon might be "hung like a 9-year-old boy," as Hailey so eloquently put it, but she and Ms. Major were the ones who took that three-inch wonder for a ride. Before you trash-talk a former flame, remember that the people you've dated reflects on you and your ability to pick a partner. That being said, here are our tips for (not) dissing your ex:
There are certain things you just shouldn't do on a first date, like attend a three-hour self-help seminar, enter a burrito-eating contest or get a tattoo with your date's name on it. Another item to add to the list? Talking about your ex. As far as dating etiquette goes, chatting about your former flame ranks pretty high on the list of no-nos. In fact, doing so flies in the face of good manners, which, in a nutshell, require you to act in a respectful way toward others so that they, in turn, respect you.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold. Thankfully, these ten jilted lovers ignored that old adage, otherwise we wouldn't have such a fun, ridiculous and hot list. Love can make you do a lot of crazy things, but the loss of love put these folks over the edge, online, and in some case…on fire!
Should you get revenge on an ex? If you've ever had a cold-hearted lout stomp all over your heart, you may be saying yes. Revenge makes you feel better, and if it's not illegal or violent, why not give yourself the satisfaction of seeing your ex suffer? On the other hand, maybe getting revenge will actually make you feel worse. It's not going to win you any points in the integrity game, and that momentary gratification might give way to regret. Here, Ted McPherson (anti-revenge) and Judy McGuire (pro-revenge) debate: is getting revenge a good idea? Read what they have to say, and let us know what you think in the comments.
Just last week, we shared with you the 10 Signs You're Not Over Your Ex. And while we sympathize with those of you who were still pining (we cyberstalk our exes sometimes, too) we're hoping the post was the catalyst you needed to finally move past that toxic purgatory of single-but-still-hanging-on. And since one week is totally long enough to get over someone once and for all, we thought we'd check in on your progress. For your reference, here are 10 signs you're over your ex.
It can be difficult to tell if you're over an ex. After sharing a significant chunk of your life with someone, it makes sense that they'd remain perpetually in your thoughts, at least in some capacity. So how do you know if you've really put your past to rest, or if you're still mired in your last relationship? Here, ten signs that you're not over him.
John Mayer uses the term "sexual napalm" when discussing his relationship with Jessica Simpson in a Playboy interview. Oddly enough, though he does kiss and tell regarding his Jessica Simpson era, he keeps it close to the vest about Jennifer Aniston. Talking out-of-school about exes isn't that cool; talking about sexual addiction, specifically to a person, is worth discussing.
While Facebook users play with the celebrity Doppelganger application that matches their face with a famous guy or gal's, one woman in China is taking it to another level: getting plastic surgery to look like Jessica Alba... with the intended purpose of winning her boyfriend back. Xiaoqing, a 21-year-old from China, wants to get plastic surgery to look like Jessica Alba in order to win back an ex-boyfriend who is obsessed with the Hollywood actress.
I’m not proud of this, but I am kind of obsessed with my ex’s new girlfriend. Not in an Alicia Silverstone in “The Crush” sort of way—I am not going to trap the chick in a shed and set a hive of bees on her to attack. That would be crazy! No, I just like to look at her Facebook page sometimes. It’s been set to private ever since the day I told my ex that I suspected he was lying to me about his relationship with her. He must have told her I was onto them, because suddenly I didn’t have as much access to this mysterious girl I’d only ever met twice, who slipped in and changed my life without me noticing.
In this modern age of dating, casual sex and hooking up, many of us remain friendly with people we've seen naked long after the ugly-bumping has come to an end. That said, there are still plenty of rules that must be followed if you actually want to maintain some semblance of a friendship. After the jump, 20 dos and don'ts of having a post-hookup friendship.
We’ve all done a few things we aren’t proud of in the midst of a heinous breakup. Breakups bring out the very worst in people, but that tendency seems to exist to an extreme degree in celebrities. It seems as if their relationships always ends less with tears than with potential jail time. Tiger Woods’s wife’s coming at him with a golf club (allegedly) is just the latest in a string of incidents in which seemingly normal celebrities have turned into downright psychotic exes.
