She was 40 and had just initiated her divorce. He was 28 and single. They met at a business conference and spent one crazy night together before heading back to their respective lives. She had never done anything like that before, but credits that experience with having given her a much-needed escape from all the doubt, confusion and fear associated with her divorce. It opened the door to possibilities she hadn’t known were there all along. And it was the shock to the system she needed to remind her of all the great things she had forgotten about herself.
Feeling the heat this summer with an exciting new romance? Here are a few pointers to keep in mind if you want to extend the sizzle past that final August barbecue.
Long drawn out break ups are certainly difficult but what about the ending of a fling that never quite graduated to a relationship? When these short and unsubstantial encounters end, we often seek solitude in coping with our shattered hearts and egos. After all, why bother seeking comfort in others, right? In my experience, these “flings” are often even more temporarily damaging because our hope was at stake. A short fling does not leave time to fully witness the demise of a connection and often someone is left hanging with no closure at all.
We don't think anyone was surprised when it was revealed yesterday that Alex Rodriguez had been caught flirting with two women while the New York Yankees third baseman was still dating former WWE wrestler Torrie Wilson. But just who were the women he was talking with?
Ah! Here I am in Paris, my loves! I thought for the sake of my heart and sanity, I'd do an apartment swap with a woman here for a month and let the healing from my recent breakup begin. And it has begun… I think.
Summer is a time when it's easy to fall in love. The vibe is more laid-back, there are lots of outdoor goings-on, and the warm temperature means fewer clothing and more skin. But the difficult part is figuring out whether your summer romance will last—or go down in history as a fling.
The holidays are right around the corner, and if egg nog, stuffing and Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" do mysterious things to your libido—fear not. We suffer from the Holiday Friskies, too. We feel your sexually frustrated pain. Whether your parents' guest bedroom has you aching for another's or a holiday getaway is in order, there's nothing like a few guilt-free days off to initiate a bold try with what's-his-name from high school or that-one-over-there at the resort bar (if you're fancy). Regardless, the holidays are a perfect time for a no-strings-attached fling. Here are a few ways to make it run exceptionally smooth.
Women are the traditional consumers of self-help books, but guys need advice too. And what better way to find out what goes on inside his head than to read dating advice written by and for men? (Some might say you could ask him, but where's the fun in that?) In this spirit we bring you this piece by men's lifestyle expert, Oliver "Ali" Nejad, who fills you in on how men approach rebound relationships.
Summertime, and as Ella would say, the rhythm is easy. So keep an eye out and find yourself a fun companion to go and do with these three months. Here are eight date ideas to add to your summer fling checklist. Remember, summer flings are fleeting and you won't have an endless amount of time together. Do grab your calendar and start jotting down some date.
While a life of bed hopping isn’t something to, uh, aspire to necessarily, but casual dalliances, like youth, won't be at your disposal forever. So you might as well slip on those proverbial heels and squeeze out the most unique shape you can, while you still can. So for god sakes try to spice it up a bit. Here's a list of five guys you should fling it with before taking the plunge. And if you've already plowed your way through all of these? Bravo! The foreign guy, the bartender, the guy in the band you just watched, the really super successful guy and the guy you'd never ever be into.
2006 was a year of unprotected sex for me. No, not every time, but I started off the year with a fling with a slightly older man I was besotted with, who didn’t speak a word about condoms, and, in response, I didn’t either. I wanted to trust that he had some magical knowledge that somehow I was missing, that maybe the world had overturned itself and they were no longer necessary.

Then later that year I met a guy I fell absolutely head over heels with, sure that we were destined to be together.

Em and Lo, in turn, laid out ten basic rules of the one-night stand. After all, knowing you'll never see him again does not give you (or him) permission to be rude. Some of our favorites (with a bit of interpretation)...
