By Image Consultant and Educator, Beth Newman for GalTime Over the course of the last few days, I’ve had the same conversation with parents regarding this mean girl epidemic that, evidently, isn’t going away anytime soon.
As someone who's in a new relationship, I'm a firm believer in the so-called "honeymoon stage": when every date feels like the first, every kiss gives you butterflies and everything seems perfect. But I've been warned that life after the honeymoon stage isn't always a picnic, especially when it comes to keeping things creative.
If the world was ending, who would you pick to spend your last days with? "Seeking a Friend for The End of The World" asks just this question, but the answers are not exactly what you'd expect.
We bought our first lottery ticket a few months ago when the jackpot was close to $315 million. We won two dollars. It was disappointing, as the lottery usually is – you start to fantasize about what you would do with that much money, but in the back of your head you know your chances are impossibly slim. Not so with this lottery!
By Allison Pescosolido MA and Andra Brosh PhD for GalTime With just the click of a button, we can "unfriend" people from Facebook, ejecting them from our daily lives without a second thought. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just “unfriend” your ex-husband or ex-boyfriend in real time.. the same way you can on Facebook?
Airports are awful these days. They're crowded with people who aren't sure where they need to go and don't understand that you need to take your shoes off while going through security. And don't even get us started on the creepy pat-downs from complete strangers who get to do so because they're wearing uniforms...
By Julie Metzger RN, MN for GaiTime A mere 60 years ago in the United States, half of all young women in the US were marrying in their teens, girls received about a third of all bachelor degrees, and less than half of the states allowed women to serve equally on a jury.
Now, we know things go down differently in the South than they do where we're based in NYC. There are plenty more cowboy boots, country boys and Kenny Chesney songs, which is all "fine and dandy" in our book. But, for a gal who's not from around those parts, a date proposal that involves large quantities of mud does not sound like a fun, romantic way to spend a Friday night.
Kim Kardashian has over 2 million Instagram fans – and considering the photo she just posted to thank them, it's pretty easy to see why! "Thanks to all you 2million sexy beasts out there for following me on Instagram," she said moments ago. "So heres a little present of me in full on beast mode! LOL"
A monumental ruling by the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston today declared the Defense of Marriage Act, the national law that declared marriage as a union "between one man and one woman," unconstitutional. The ruling sets the stage for DOMA to be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court, which could lead to federal approval of same-sex marriages.
Gone are the days when you had to take pop quizzes and standardized tests, and you couldn't be happier. The last time you remember using a pencil to fill in a little circle on paper was when you asserted that yes, you are over 18 and (unlike the tanning mom's daughter) old enough to use a tanning bed.
One modern etiquette expert advises against Pinteresting your wedding when you're single. "That's a lot of pressure for a guy to see."

"I could never be a politician. But as uncomfortable as I would be doing so, I have no problem with Obama's long-planned 'change of heart.' This dude's made huge, measurable strides for gay rights, and if being coy about his plans for gay marriage for a few years was needed to get him elected, then so be it. LGBT persons will be better off, and federal same-sex marriage recognition will come sooner because of it."
