Julia Allison, internet celebrity and Time Out New York Dating columnist, has launched her online talk show, TMI Weekly. The series is part of NonSociety, Allison's vanity project, cough, web venture that showcases her life and those of her two friends, Megan Asha and Mary Rambin. TMI Weekly episodes are two or three minutes gabfests where Allison and company discuss, as the tagline suggests, "Sex. Tech. Style." The videos want to be a cross between The View and the Sex and the City character's weekly lunches; unfortunately they lack a diversity of viewpoints and make up for it with dramatic facial expressions and giggling.
What to do with a boyfriend who's a little too flirtatious.
Slate.com's advice columnist, Dear Prudence, tackles a pesky relationship problem we've had: dating an incorrigible flirt. You know, the guy (or girl) who drives you batty as much as he sets alight butterflies in your tummy. Only problem is, I think Prudie goes too easy on her subject.
A mediocre-looking guy recently approached my sister, a hesitant JDate subscriber, online. After a brief chat, the strangers decided to take things to the next level. Sex? No. Facebook? Yes. They exchanged names and allowed the inter-network stalking to begin.
A day or so later, my sister burst into laughter at a Facebook message she'd received a video message from the JDate boy. Playing the piano and singing (in a surprisingly good voice, I might add) he began: Here I am writing strange girls messages via video, via song, but only because you looked like someone I'd like to talk to more.
