Girl rejects kiss from her friend
It’s the age-old debate: Can you get out of the friend zone? And more importantly, how do you stay out of the friend zone? I could write an entire novel on this subject, but I’ll try to keep it short and proactive for those of you stuck in the eternal hell that we call the “friend zone.” Here are my tips on how to stay out of this zone, as it’s much easier to stay out of it than leave it (unless, of course, you’re Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally).

We know that you think it’s a stupid holiday, but it’s important to us ladies, so suck it up for one day and get over it. Read more

I’ve yet to come up with a catchy term for this phenomenon (Mandren? Chilan?), but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re out there. Boys disguised as men. They have the body of a 27-year-old, but the maturity of a toddler.  Here are the top five signs that you’re dating a man child: Read more

Dealing with being blow off

Dealing with a blow off is never fun. We’ve all been there and often the worst blow off comes from a guy. As women, we believe that we should have the power because we have the pussy. But that’s not always the case. I’ve been blown off one too many times and have come across a few gems from a few assholes. Here are my top three blow offs: Read more
