Autumn is here, which means it's time for Pumpkin Spice lattes, football, scarves, boots and the best thing in the world: cuddling up on the couch with a new TV pilot. We are constantly trying to find the next big show. Whether it is an action series like Game of Thrones, a drama like Breaking Bad or a comedy like How I Met Your Mother, we always need something to keep us busy on an afternoon where you literally want nothing to do with being outdoors. Pretty soon for us east coasters, we will be hibernating instead of going out to bars.
My girlfriend doesn't do drugs. Ever. She's never smoked a cigarette, let alone anything else (just the smell of pot makes her nauseous), and she didn't even start drinking until she was 23 (and even then, she still only drinks just enough whiskey or gin to, as she says, "become a nicer person," then stops before it gets messy). Normally, that is. Recently, she had to get some oral surgery, and her dentist prescribed her codeine to help with the residual pain.
So, there's going to be another royal baby! We can all calm down, though, because this one isn't important. The future king was already born, so this is just a regular baby. So we can all relax, even though none of us will because OMGZ BRITISH RICH PEOPLE! There will still absolutely be a bunch of people who get excited about this, because they love rich babies. I guess that's a thing to love. I mean, nothing against the baby, but it doesn't necessarily deserve the life it's about to be born into. It hasn't earned it at all. Get a job, baby!
Neil Patrick Harris is officially off the market forever, which is very bittersweet because we're absolutely obsessed with NPH and his husband, David Burtka. On the other hand, we were all kind of hoping that maybe one day he would realize he's straight in hopes we'd have a shot with him (kind of the way we hope Matt Bomer will eventually come out as straight).
The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco (the second-highest paid TV actress right now) and tennis flop Ryan Sweeting got engaged after only dating for three months. (This was after he'd moved in with her after they only dated for—wait for it—two days.) They married three months later, making their courtship a total of six months long, or short, as it were.
Men are mysterious creatures, at least to us ladies. They can be as effusive as women (ok, sometimes), and other times they clam up. And there is one topic that makes men go into silent mode more than any other. And that subject? Love, of course. Love makes fools of us all, men and women equally. However, women are more prone to expressing their feelings. It's just how we roll. We like to put it all on the table. Men, on the other hand, will sometimes show their love for you in non-verbal gestures.
Although love is an emotion that can't be easily explained, it is the seed to other growing emotions; whether it's anger, sadness or happiness. All those emotions are evoked from some type of love. When you’re riding the high of love your smile always meets your ears, topped with that warm, tingly feeling in the pit of your stomach. But when you're on the downside of the rush, it feels more like a thousand burning needles to the heart (um, maybe a big of an exaggeration, but not by much!).
At YourTango, we love quotes, and we love love, so naturally, we adore love quotes (it just works)! And we know how we feel about the ones we hold dear, but what about you, darling reader? Have you ever loved someone so much that you just couldn't find the words to express your intense feelings? All you could do was yell "I love you!" and shower them with a mad barrage of hugs and kisses. If so, you're likely not alone. If you were, Facebook wouldn't be so full of your friends sharing love quotes from famous folks like William Shakespeare, Maya Angelou and John Lennon.
I love you: Those three little words can take weeks, months or even years to say - no matter how much you care about someone. You've seen it done in the movies, on TV shows, in books and you've even uttered it in past relationships. But when it comes to saying it with someone new, it can feel just like the first time. Is it too early? Too late? The right time? The right setting? Will they say it back? It's also three of the most beautiful words a person can utter or hear.
There's nothing worse than a sloppy kiss. The moisture, the rogue tongue going every which way, the groping hands. It's enough to make you shiver (and not in the fun way). Do you really want to be known as the Face Licker, or the Tongue Stabber? No, we didn't think so. No human on earth wants that. You (and the rest of us, really) want to be known as a fantastic kisser, as the man or woman who is the master of both the slow, sensual kiss and the wild, passionate make out. You want to be the person that others actually want to smooch on.
You know that wonderful girl who's dating a real jerk? The sort of guy who, if he was a wrestler, would be what's known as a heel (that's what wrestling fans call the bad guys)? Everybody hates this guy, but she keeps dating him. And you're like, Dude, why? You want to say something to her about it, but then you remember that you can't. You can't, because she's a famous actress or singer or model and you don't actually know her as a person.
Last week Modern Family took home its fifth Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. That's five years of being the best comedy on TV, which let's face it, it totally is. Every single cast member on Modern Family is competely crucial to its success. We've spent five years with the actors and we don't really know too much about them.
The '90s are a thing again and we think it's time to exhume one of the biggest, best, Canadian tux-wearing romances of the era. That's right. We're talking Justin Timberlake and his ex, Britney Spears. The pop stars dated from 1999 through 2002. It's high time for a Justney resurgence, y'all. Justney V. 2014 could and should happen.
What is love? That is an incredibly difficult question to answer. Throughout our lives we learn what it is to love from many different sources. People such as teachers, family members and lovers are all held responsible (to some degree) for the way we interpret love and interact with it when it’s in our presence. Whether through direct or indirect actions, it all counts for something!
Oh me, oh my, the things people do. As a general rule, the human race can get up to some pretty strange business. Especially in bed. And we've got the sex stories to prove it! 11 women told us their craziest, wildest, most downright freaky tales of lust. These ladies spilled their secrets, big time. From an armpit-licker to a hot mess of a human-gorilla, we've got the wacky sex stories you need to hear. We're not pulling any punches here; the stories we've rounded up really happened, to women of all ages, all over the country.
