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
Looking back, it feels like the 1940’s were divided into two different eras: one when women were desperate for the men to come home from the war, and one the men who finally came home.
The depression was finally over! But from 1939 to 1945, rationing was in and guys were out (of the country). Eligible men were shipped off to war, and women were left to either run the household, or live in their parents’ home praying that her boyfriend returned home safely. If and when they ever came back, there weren’t enough single men to go around! All’s fair in love and war, girls. Here’s what dating was like in the 40s…
Would you like to stalk other singles? Now, you can! Via their shirts. And tracking numbers. And iPhone apps to track their tracking numbers publicly.

Do you know about Tinder? It’s a new dating app that’s being billed as “Grindr for straight people,” which is silly because the dating and hook up habits of straight people will never mirror those of gay people so long as women are socialized to want love, men sex, but whatever. Some guys, like my friend [redacted], use it to go on dates that sometimes end in sex because he has a knack for meeting hilarious, weird, sex liking girls. Other, less charming men try to use it like it’s Grindr, with generally poor results. More
The sexy, carefree roar of the ’20s came to an abrupt whimper when the stock market crashed on October 24th, 1929. Black Tuesday would mark the beginning of the Great Depression which was (spoiler!) incredibly depressing. Any young men and women left in the country ditched their dried up farms to stand in the bread lines and look for work in American cities.
It was a shitty time to be American, and an even shittier time to be a single American woman. So what was dating like in the 1930s? Hold onto your worn-out fedoras as we explore love and life in the Great Depression… More
Did you know dating in America started in the 1920s? Yes, we have those fabulous flappers to thank for modern-day first dates, missed calls, and mixed signals. The first world war was over, and the action — and moonshine — was brewing in illicit night clubs. Small town girls and country boys flocked to the city, where the drinks were flowing and the women were wild.
>Dating in the Jazz Age wasn’t all Gatsby parties, cocktails and pearls. Here’s how you would have dated in the 1920′s… More

Amid all the discussion of Kate Upton as the average, predictable bro’s fantasy girlfriend, we seem to have lost track of an important question: who actually does get to date Kate Upton? Some people might not want to know, as that destroys the notion that she is some kind of Frankenbabe created by science to love only you, but it’s important to remember that she is a human woman with predictable desires of her own.

Relationships involve a lot of patience, sacrifice, and white lies. Not just with each other, but everyone around you! I’ve been dating my boyfriend for three years, and each year I add more lies onto the pile of deceit. I’ve found myself living some of these lies — about how we met and where we live — so openly that I get lost in the story and have to remind myself of the truth.
Read the nine lies I’ve told since I started dating and admit that you, too, have been lying your face off. More

Greetings, angry misogynists of the internet! Did you know that today is your lucky day? No, your female friends are not finally going to give you the sex that they owe you in return for being friends with them. But they are adding your beloved term “friend zone” to the Oxford English Dictionary, which is kind of the next best thing, right? More
