Facebook. How did we exist before it? How did you define ourselves, our relationships with friends and/or boyfriends? How did we let people know, on a large scale, that yes, you ate the four-day-old Chinese food, and now your head is in the toilet while you throw up everything you've consumed in the last 48 hours? How would we know that your two-year-old is officially potty-trained, but decided it should play with its shit one last time? How did we do it? Oh, we didn't. That's so sad for us. Over-sharers, attention whores and braggers could not have asked for anything more awesome than the invention of Facebook. It's become the go-to for revealing oneself and maybe even tossing things in other people's face. But it's cool; everyone does it. And if everyone does it, don't you owe it to yourself to maybe take advantage of Facebook in regards to getting the attention of your ex? If you're lucky enough to have parted ways amicably without any blocking done, why wouldn't you want to pull some "Look at me! Look at me! I'm so awesome without you!" action? You'd be weird to NOT want to do such a childish thing.…
Does the guy you're dating have long-term potential? In general, women tend to rely on words, whereas men rely on actions. So, when men speak sweetly to women, women believe them, even if they don't behave accordingly. Men, on the other hand, see how women behave, and interpret the behavior to mean what they want to believe, regardless of what the woman says. So, if you say you don't love him, but continue to have sex with him, all your words are in vain; he interprets your actions and draws his own conclusions. This discrepancy between words and behavior is especially problematic in marriage-bound relationships. So, watch out if your man is one of these five types: 1. The "help me until I'm ready" guy. The "need help" type is totally entrenched in his own insecurities. He only talks about his own problems —never yours — but he wants a lady by his side because it makes him feel worthy. So, he keeps her there by asking her to help him "until he's ready." But, guess what: He'll never be ready, and so, he is not husband material.

6 steps to the ultimate proposal

 Way before you meet the man you want to spend the rest of your life with, you most likely have already dreamed about two important occasions: your wedding and the time he proposes. You've ironed out every detail, the shape of the diamond you want, the color band your heart covets... Mendeecees popped the question to his girlfriend Yandy Smith, on last night's episode of "Love & Hip Hop," and left viewers with tears cradling their cheeks as he set up a beautiful and romantic proposal. His elaborate scheme, which consisted of surprising Yandy in a candlelit room adorned with rose pedals, was a breath of fresh air from the previous proposals we've seen on reality TV (coughs: Jim Jones). Despite the fact that Mendeecees is currently awaiting trial for a drug trafficking case stemming from a 2005, his love for Yandy is evident in how far he went to make her special moment the ultimate memory. Check out some key points from his proposal: Get approval from mom (or dad) Get a second opinion on the ring Set up a romantic place to propose (rose petals and candles optional) Get down on one knee Smile and say some kind…
Seven ways to meet the love of your life at Wal-Mart, of all places. Psychology Today conducted a study on love-at-first-sight. Believe it or not, Wal-Mart topped the list of places where people encounter irresistible strangers. The study was based on "missed connection" notices posted on Craigslist. So, how can you take advantage of this trend? Here is a list of seven dating tips to make yourself more approachable and increase your chances of interacting with men at major retail stores: 1. Smile and make eye contact. I call these two actions "flirting basics" and both make it easier for men to approach you. As a single woman, this is something you want to be more conscious of. The more approachable you are, the more men will take the chance to walk over and say hello. In addition, when you smile, you automatically look more attractive. You can't go wrong when you smile brightly at a man who catches your eye. 2. Be friendly. This is the place to turn up the charm! If you are a naturally bubbly person who interacts easily with people, why not try it while shopping? Being friendly and warm is like sharing your own…

11 signs you've outgrown your man

Maybe you've felt it before, a change in intensity, a drifting away, love that has unfortunately faded. One's age, maturity, persona and circumstances are all factors that affect one's relationship, and there are times when the person you thought was the love of your life ends up the stranger who shares your bed at night. Though it's difficult, you may eventually come to realize that though love is forever, a relationship sometimes isn't. Here are a few signs that you've probably outgrown your man: 1. Don't fool yourself. Straight up, you're just not very compatible. If your lover's dream is to drop out and become self-sufficient on a farm somewhere, and you're a city person with ambitions, one of you is going to be seriously unhappy if you stay together. Or, if you always want to go out and he always wants to stay home, look for someone whose social style is closer to yours. 2. Be honest...he isn't even close to your fantasy. If you're a longtime luckless single, you may be tempted to stay with someone just because they're available and willing, but don't do it. He has to turn you on somewhat; there has to be some…
Headed out of town? Here's how to enjoy yourself (minus the hangover). Ah, spring break. It's one week a year when we dedicate to indulge ourselves by jetting off to tropical destinations, lounging by the beach, sipping on fruity cocktails and taking in all the eye candy galore.

Signs you're about to get dumped

Do you get the sense that something is up with your boyfriend? Afraid it might be the end of the road for your relationship? If so, you've come to the right place. In this video, therapist and author Rachel Sussman explains that "the majority of breakups are really painful and really messy," but the worst ones, says Sussman, "are the ones that completely come out of left field." She calls that kind of breakup "the hit-and-run," and when there's no warning, there's often no closure, and that's what really sends people over the edge emotionally. So how can you tell if a breakup is imminent? Read more at http://www.yourtango.com/2013176783/signs-youre-about-get-dumped-thinkr-podium
If you're looking to impress, dinner and a movie will make more of an impact on your wallet than your date. With a little bit of creativity inspired by these date night ideas, it's easy to score big even on a little budget. These five are free: 1. Beach blanket bingo. Whether you are near a beach or not, you can find a romantic place to gaze at the stars and one another. Take a board game or the 'Would You Rather' book with you and watch the sparks fly. 2. Hey good lookin', what ya got cookin'? It doesn't matter what's being served. If you heat things up in the kitchen and cook for your partner or make a meal together, you'll leave feeling satisfied. 3. Match point.

Bookstores and college campuses often host free events with authors. Although it's encouraged, you're not required to buy…

Legendary baller Michael Jordan filed for a marriage license this morning in the downtown West Palm Beach courthouse. Jordan and his fiance, Yvette Prieto, arrived at the courthouse Thursday morning around 8:30 a.m. The greatest player in the history of basketball, who has six rings, put a ring on Pietro in December 2011. The couple have been dating for four years and this will be his second marriage. He was married to Juanita Jordan for 17 years before they divorced in 2006, and have three children together. Jordan made headlines recently when a woman named Pamela Smith filed a paternity suit claiming he fathered her child 16 years ago after a sexual encounter.
A new Australian study published in the journal "Biology Letters" on Wednesday contends that women can tell whether a man is faithful or not by simply staring him in the face, according to reporting Reuters. Men, however, do not possess the same skills as their counterparts with regards to spotting a potential female cheater, the article states. Findings from the student found that women formulated their opinions about men who stray based on their degree of masculinity and not on how attractive they are physically. "Women's ratings of unfaithfulness showed small-moderate, significant correlations with measures of actual infidelity," wrote the team, led by Gillian Rhodes at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders at the University of Western Australia in Perth. "More masculine-looking men (were) rated as more probable to be unfaithful and having a sexual history of being more unfaithful." The study consisted of 34 men and 34 women who were shown 189 color photographs of adults. The subjects were asked to determine whether each person depicted in the photo was faithful or not. The scientists then compared the biographical data supplied by each person's photo to the participant's responses. The researchers then concluded that the…
