Valentine’s gifts you should splurge on for your husband

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and it’s time to celebrate love. If you’re in a marriage or long-term relationship, it can be easy to feel like you can skip all of the V-Day madness. You could just write it off as something people in new relationships do because they’re so, well, new. But I say why not take a day to celebrate your significant other whether you’ve been together for four weeks or 40 years? It’s such an opportunity to say I love you. You shouldn’t pass it up. And for your husband, why cut corners? Go ahead and splurge this year. Here are some ideas. Read more

How to accept his guilty pleasures

Guilty pleasures — you have them. I have them. We all do. Then why is it so shocking when a man has them? I really don’t know. But I do know that I’m always floored whenever a new guy reveals one of his guilty little pleasures to me. Of course it makes sense, though. Peanut butter on a spoon knows no gender! And neither does rotten TV, dirty talk in the bedroom or porn. Well, actually, I guess porn does know some gender, but still. You get what I’m saying, right?

Brazilian. Landing strip. Lightening bolt. You have a lot of options when it comes to grooming down there. Even when you’ve been lady grooming for years, the options can get overwhelming, and it seems like they’re always adding new options. While I know that women’s magazines will tell you to do whatever makes you feel comfortable when it comes to grooming down there, the truth is that most of us put in the extra effort down there because we want our lady parts to be as attractive to our partners as possible.

When texting becomes toxic

Texting is an integral part of any relationship’s communication these days. Anyone who says differently is probably your grandma. Or actually, your great grandma.

10 dates you should go on in 2013

I actually don’t have many resolutions this year. 2012 was a bang-up year for me. It included starting this site! So of course it was fantastic. The one little thing I’d love to change for this coming year is to be a bit more adventurous and creative when it comes to dating. Everyone — even dating gurus — can fall into a slump of ordering in, watching a movie and snuggling. And of course there’s nothing wrong with doing that. There’s nothing wrong with doing that a lot. But I’d like to add a few other options in there to mix it up. So here are 10 dates that I’d like to go on in 2013. Read more
