I'm a MILF!

It’s funny to think we’ll be eternally grateful for the American Pie movie series for introducing the term, MILF (Mother I’d Like to Fuck) into the mainstream lexicon. ...more

When My Boyfriend's Friends Hit on Me

I’m not generalizing, (I kind of am), but I can bet that at some point if you ever had a boyfriend, and he ever had friends, the likelihood that said friends would hit on you is very high. Like probably. Probably definitely. Most of the time it is completely harmless and can even be flattering, am I right ladies? A boyfriend’s friend hits on you and it could be all sorts of validation. I’m pretty enough; I’m cool enough; he likes me - I’m here to stay....more

Startling Honeymoon Realization: I'm an Old Man at Heart

You know when women simper and say, “Oh, I’m just a child at heart…”It’s usually to explain why they still like coloring books, or as part of an attempt to convince a date they’re not boring. If a man says it, it’s usually to preface some pointless/reckless act, like jumping a motorcycle over something.Well, I just realized that I’m the complete opposite of this.I am an old man at heart.It was kind of a startling realization, especially considering I came to it over our honeymoon, but I’m actually pretty comfortable with the classification.

He Cheated, Now What...Does The "Cheater Gene" Really Exist?

  Cheating is super fun for some people. Like, “Thrill Seekers” who are literally turned on not so much by the act of cheating, but by the possibility of being caught while doing so. Cheating has gone on since the beginning of time whether it be on a test (which we all did in high school…damn algebra), or on our partners. Why do we cheat? Is there a true genetic predisposition to be a “cheater” or have we all just lost our sense of impulse control? First, we have to look at why constitutes cheating on your partner. Here is where things can get tricky because we all have our own interpretations of what cheating actually is. For some its dancing with someone that is not their partner at a club, or watching porn. Other people feel texting someone that is not their partner is cheating. Those acts are not even physical, but can be considered cheating. Then, there are the physical acts of kissing, touching or having sex with someone who is not your partner....more

The Grass is Always Greener...

This past week has been filled with so much heartbreak. Not just for the people of France, Russia, Syria, and all of the other countries that have been affected by terror, natural disaster, and pain--but, also for individual families. Families who I have known my entire life. Families that have had to walk through pain and darkness that I cannot even imagine....more

I'm Not a Pocket Person

I don’t like to keep things in my pockets; I never did. I appreciate pockets as a resting place for idle hands or for a good pose, but I never thought pockets were convenient for storing things like wallets, keys, cell phones. I’m like the Princess and the Pea and I feel anything and everything in any pocket. ...more

Why I Defend The Person Who Rejected Me

People make mistakes. Sometimes, they react poorly when they’re exposed to something shocking. Last week, I shared a very personal story about rejection (which you should absolutely read before this if you haven’t yet). Even though it's been over a year since it happened, and I’ve changed in countless ways, I found myself in tears while writing the end of the piece. I couldn’t stop thinking about why that was the case....more
