So often singles receive censure and criticism, but this dating expert Dr. Karin Anderson lists the 5 things singles are doing correctly.
Our favorite glasses wearing, junk food loving, nerd-chic heroine has officially taken her bow. And after seven years of laughs, what better way to pay tribute to the comic 30 Rock series than to take a trip down Liz Lemon’s romantic memory lane. The show paved the way for some new funny girl’s like Zooey Dechanel’s quirky Jess and Mindy Kalling’s adorably disheveled Mindy. So in Tina Fey’s immortal words, “Ain’t no party like a Liz Lemon party cause a Liz Lemon party is mandatory.”
Just when you think the world is full of love and sunshine and rainbows, yet another study comes along and smacks you in the face to prove otherwise. Turns out that a lot of men don't enter into commitments like marriage out of a genuine bond toward a woman — they seem to do it just because. Let's explore, shall we?
Though many individuals cannot wait to find a life partner and best friend, to share their life with as they grow old together, there are others who have a deep fear of commitment. Neither of these types of people are wrong or right. Of course, the trouble comes when one of each type finds themselves in a relationship – that is when the hurt can begin.
Once it happens, colors become numbers, numbers become letters, and letters turn into a confusion of emotion that leave you utterly baffled at what you are experiencing. For some people, time will even stop; preserving one of the most meaningful and memorable moments of your life. This whirlwind of events and emotion can happen at any time. The triggers can be seemingly inconsequential, but it's the small things you do that can make him fall for you, hard. What, you may be asking yourself, are those special elements that change his thinking from "she's a cool person" to "she's the one?" Most men will agree that there are some common things women do and say that create pivotal moments, leading to men having a sense that they cannot live another day or another moment without that special person.
Are men afraid of commitment? Or are they more afraid of getting it wrong? With a high divorce rate and the Yen and dollar fluctuating the way it is, can you ever be sure? The goal is to avoid buyer's remorse by not making the panic purchase.
Twentysomething guys are often thought of to be party- and booty-obsessed overgrown babies, but a new study reveals that most of them actually covet fatherhood! Biological clocks, stability and good, old-fashioned love are some of the reasons motivating men to have kids.
Rap star Nelly and R & B starlet Ashanti have apparently decided to go their separate ways. The couple has allegedly been dating on-and-off for four years and largely below the radar. Allegedly, she was ready to settle down and Nelly was still eager to have fun. He was recently seen in the company of model Melyssa Ford AKA Jessica Rabbit in designated fun-zones Miami and Las Vegas.
No longer content to just smile and start over, women want answers from the men who waved them goodbye. Luckily, one male writer was brave enough to offer up a few suggestions as to why guys dump girls they dig. We're not saying we agree with them, but listen up ladies. You'll need to know how to deal if on the receiving end of one of these excuses.
In recent conversations the topic of settling has come up quite a bit. When a friend of ours e-mailed this article with a nudge, saying, "See? This is what I want. A partnership. A man who will vacuum, carry the kids around on his shoulders and hold down a steady job," we gave the topic a good read. In this article in The Atlantic, a woman finds herself, after bravely having had a baby on her own (with the help of donor sperm), pining for a traditional family similar to those surrounding her at the park, complete with ball-tossing Papas. She gives this advice to single women in their 20s and 30s: Settle already and go for Mr. Close Enough.
One of the unknowns swirling through the heads of those in their mid-20s who—if circumstances allow—face the question of their existence is: will my hemming and hawing disappear when I meet someone? Which begs the next question: does this make me misguided or, worse, pathetic? In looking to define oneself as a firmly affixed adult, far away from the free-flowing tenets that defined many college and post-college lives, a relationship can often seem like a quick fix or even like a natural one.
I've slept with my share of guys... I think it's around 20, and I'm almost 30. Every age group from 19 to 42...different races...but why am I still not ready to settle down and commit to one guy? I want to commit but I'll still feel like I'm missing out on something. Maybe because I was loyal in an unhappy marriage from 20 to 26? Or maybe because i just haven't found the right guy yet who makes me want to forsake all others?
