10. Let him know you won’t be paying, but you will be pretending to consider it at the end of the evening. Maybe. More
Let’s go ahead and read way too much into what happens on Valentine’s Day. There’s no way that can possibly lead to disappointment and heartache. More
NYE is that one night a year where you get to wear sequins, get wasted and make out with a random ginger dude on the rooftop of an apartment building that you only kind of know one resident from. If you’re me, then that random ginger dude will turn out to be a complete psychopath who refuses to leave you alone the rest of the evening, presses your head against a cab window, calls your friends assholes because they’re wearing suits, and tries to pay a stranger to beat up one of the aforementioned amigos.
TL;DR — NYE can go so, so very wrong, particularly if you are a poor judge of character. More
The first conversation we had was him giving me a detailed explanation of why men don’t like women wearing crotchless panties. More
You know that incalculably uncomfortable feeling of when somebody begins to rub your shoulders who shouldn’t be? If not, good! If so, imagine that feeling occurring whenever anybody tries to touch you in a romantic or sexual way — even people you are attracted to, even people you want to sleep with, even people you have slept with before. Dating with post-traumatic stress disorder isn’t exactly simple, but lately, I have found a way that seems to work better than others for me at this moment: absence.
(And no, I did not go to a movie with a ghost nor am I being Catfish’d. Maybe.) More
I have been on a lot of first dates in my life, many of which were with people I had not yet met prior. Whether it was with people I had met through the Internet or through friends, I have experienced several instances of a romantic (or, at least, a semi-romantic) situation that went awry because the person lacked blind date etiquette. Much of this can be avoided with normal dating rules, but when it comes to hanging out with someone you’ve never met in-person, or perhaps never even seen an image of, there are specific frustrations that can arise.
Let me tell you about what happened last week… More
The internet in the 1990s may have been pretty slow, but it certainly spend up modern life. The screeching noise of a dial-up modem trying to make a connection helped drive economic globalization, fashion trends, and the third wave of feminism.
Dating in the 90s was still what we may consider old fashioned — after all, there were still no text messages or mobile phones. But there was the grunge movement, the Backstreet Boys, tapas bars, and riot grrrls. So let’s make a mix tape! Here’s what dating was like in the 1990s… More
With the season premier of Teen Wolf on June 3rd coming up fast, we at The Gloss have begged the odd and oddly fascinating question: what would we don for a date with a werewolf? More
Like thousands upon thousands of other people, I have been wearing Ruby Woo by MAC for several years. I have worn it to parties, to school, to work, to interviews, to sets, to the gym (yes, I am one of those people who wears makeup to the gym, and I know — blah blah what’s the point blah blah).
I love wearing red lipstick out, but I have always been somewhat cautious of doing so when out with somebody. You know, romantically. Red lipstick on a first date feels weird. More
I am bad at doing things alone. Like, really bad. I’ve spent about a third of my life in relationships (sad, I know) and therefore have usually had a date to most things. And when I haven’t had a date, I’ve had friends to come with me, but in case you forgot, I moved and have very few friends so this is difficult at the moment. But on the bright side, it’s forcing me to learn how to go places alone, and that is a life skill everyone should develop (although I’m pretty sure everybody else developed it like a decade before me). More
When I think about horror movies I have watched, and how I respond to them, I tend to think “it is amazing I still go out and function like anything remotely resembling a person.” Here are some memorable movies and how I responded to them. I’m going to go hide in a really well lit empty room now. More
There are a lot of things that terrify me about living in the modern age. Global warming. The ever present threat of nuclear apocalypse. Government officials thinking that the female uterus can shut down rape presumably by witchcraft or “being sassy”. Toilet snakes.
But one of the things that makes me think “thank God I was born to this age, this most glorious age” is the Chobani Soho Cafe.
Unfortunately, this means there is nothing left but for me to challenge Katie Baker to a duel. More
