Every February, retailers like Hallmark, Godiva and Kay Jewelers spend a sh*tload of money to convince anyone even remotely hoping for love (or just to get laid) to spend even more money spewing a cascade of gifts all over his or her SO to prove his or her devotion. But […]

    It Is Possible To Stay Friends With Your Ex, Just Not Right Away

    It Is Possible To Stay Friends With Your Ex, Just Not Right Away

    Recently, this article made the argument that men should sever ties with their exes because women are tired of getting into relationships with guys who were still hung up on their ex-girlfriends. I'm here to argue the other side of this statement. It's not that the article's conclusion is incorrect. But in my opinion, the premises are faulty […]

    6 Things You Should Never Say To Someone Going Through A Breakup

    6 Things You Should Never Say To Someone Going Through A Breakup

    The One Major Mistake You Might Be Making In The Dating Game

    Dating, as many women will tell you, can be a great, steaming pile of suck. Men can be so rude, so thoughtless. They text you late at night with one thing on their minds. Or they don't text at all. They're losers. They're players. They're immature. They're assh*les. But, what about us? It's easy to point […]
