Are you ready for the Kentucky Derby this Saturday? I sure am. I don't know what it is about watching that race each year that gets me so excited, but I always look forward to taking in the action. (Maybe I'm just nostalgic for the South?)
Think you found Mr. Right, but aren't sure if he's ready for marriage?
I get it. You're ready to walk down the aisle in your puffy white dress and meet Mr. Right at the altar. Then you'll waltz back down that aisle hand-in-hand and live Happily Ever After. That's what you're dreaming of, isn't it?
Tell-tale signs that your boyfriend is not over his ex-girlfriend.
I don't know how many times I've heard "don't date a guy who's just broken up with someone." No one wants to be the rebound girl. Not only is it hard on YOU, it can be just as hard on him, as he's trying to heal from his breakup. But sometimes, you find yourself breaking the rules, liking a guy who has just split up with his last partner, and you go with it. It feels right. So you do it.
Don't insult our families, compare us to your exes, or guilt us about sex. Or else.
I'm not sure if it's a tact gene that's missing from the Y chromosome, but most dudes I know are some of the biggest offenders when it comes to saying the wrong thing. So guys, listen up: Here are a bunch of things you should NEVER say to your girlfriend.
Sometimes, having sex on the first date is just a bad idea.
So you met this guy, right? And you went on a really awesome date. What better way to cap off a great night with a romp in the bedroom ... or not. Sometimes, having The Sex on the first date is just a bad idea.

Hang out with each other, let things go, and more great tips to help you avoid divorce.
By now we've all heard the statistics a zillion times: Half of all marriages end in divorce. But when you really weigh that, it's a scary thought, right? I mean, you're not standing there at the altar, all, "yeah, if this doesn't work, I'll trade him in for a new model," are you? I wasn't. But it's a frightening reality for many. Divorce happens, and sometimes it happens to us.
Eight things never to do on a first date (if you want a second).
Oh, the joys of dating. The extreme anxiety, the self-doubt, the need to check your inbox in the middle of the night just to see if anyone in particular has responded ... it can be a passive-aggressive romp through personal hell. Then again, I hear it can also be a wonderful adventure that will lead you to your soul mate.
Your new boyfriend may be amazing, but he shouldn't be your entire life.
There you are, finally dating the awesome dude of your dreams (or just a guy you like very, very much). Suddenly, you're inseparable. You can't go anywhere without each other. Instead of taking time for yourself, you manage to spend every possible second with each other — and you like it!
Being married has health, social, financial and sexual advantages over perpetual singledom.
Marriage, when it's good, can be a wonderful thing. It's like being allowed to spend your life hanging out with your best friend in the world. Remember how much we wanted our best friend to spend every night at our house for weeks on end when we were little? Well, with marriage, you get to do that. Happily married people wake up every morning next to their best bud.
