Dating expert Rachel Greenwald, author of Why He Didn't Call You Back, talks about dating etiquette, first date tips and how to make sure you get a second date. "To me a successful first or second date is simply an invitation to go out again. You can't really get to know who the person is deep down until you spend more time with them, so the lack of a follow-up date invitation means that someone has quickly stereotyped you."
All the blogosphere was abuzz to discover that the rumors were true. A long-time commenter proposed to his favorite, bookmarked blogger; and, blogger accepted, reports Jan Hoffman for the New York Times. But don't be fooled. This was no casual, one-time-comment romance. It began some four years ago with a smattering of flirtatious e-mails on the part of a loyal reader and commenter named Meade who began hinting, in the comments section, about setting up a date with his favorite blogger.

In the months after divorcing my wife, my weeks were bifurcated. Half the week, I was a single father working hard to provide a stable home for my children in the midst of an unstable time. The other half I was a man on his own trying to navigate dating for the first time in my life. Prior to being married, relationships had grown organically out of friendships rather than being the result of formal dates with women I'd met online. Just as I was becoming more comfortable with my new life, I discovered that what I thought to be a hemorrhoid was actually a tumor in my rectum. Luckily there was good hope for a cure, but the treatment would be painful, last nearly a year and leave me with a permanent colostomy.
The dude-site Holy Taco has created a girlfriend application. Women just fill out the pro-forma before they start dating a gentleman so he isn't blindsided by certain items. To be fair, who really needs mystery? With all of the information out there on Facebook, Google and online dating sites about us, you're really just doing your date and yourself a favor by putting together some pertinent info in case there is a deal-breaker or something. This is satire.
Home cooked meal; fried chicken, black eyed peas with pork neckbones, and mustard& collard greens with cornbread on the side are just a few of the items I made for the Lovely V-Day. Instead of filling my man up with love songs and romantic movies, I had my Babe's stomach so full there was no room for anything else. Wanted to play a game of hide and seek but he sat at the table with a SMILE like damn Cat from Alice in Wonderland! The look of satisfaction but it was for me more than him. I wanted to complain about not doing anything else for the rest of the night. Instead I led him to the bedroom and laid next to him like a baby rubbing his stomach until we both fell asleep with a cat on our face! I think I've found the key to my man's heart! And I this time I thought it was me!!!! How was your Valentine's Day? Do anything Special for your Significant other? What made your Day/Night ?

The 90 Days program is a four-pronged approach. The first thing you do is identify and break your "Deadly Dating" patterns. Then you go on what I call a "Dating Program of Three," where you date three guys—no sex with any of them. Number three—you do the inner work where you work on your self-sabotaging ideas, your beliefs, like "I'm too old," "I'm too fat" or "There are no good men out there." You also cultivate what I call your "Diamond Self," which really helps you bust through shyness. The last thing that you do is you get yourself a "Love Mentor." Now this is somebody who is like a fairy godmother, who gives you the most profound support and really helps you find "the one." And all of these things work together and help you succeed in creating the love you really want.
If you’ve ever logged in to an online dating site, you’ve probably come across the profile of a laid-back guy looking for a girl who is outgoing, smart and funny. This guy likes to spend time with his friends and family. He’s always up for going out but also likes to stay in with a bottle of wine and a movie. His profile picture includes at least one animal or old person. We know you’ve come across this perfectly inoffensive, but obscenely boring guy, because there’s not just one of them. Rather, there are thousands of men with nearly identical profiles on any given site–be it CasualKiss or Plenty Of Fish.
To save money and "stress," a couple of lovebirds in Illinois decided to marry in their local Taco Bell.

Facebook has existed as the Wild West for far too long. It's time that someone codify what is and is not OK to do with your fellow human beings on Mark Zuckerberg's creation (collaboration). Social media needs to follow rules in the same way that society needs to follow certain protocols of etiquette, otherwise it's going to be friggin' anarchy. Here are those rules.
