Let’s Talk About Sex

  When we date, we can physically plug into each other early on. And when it comes to sex, actual intercourse is simply a minor detail compared to all of the energetic plug-ins that are happening during act.   Most people would run from their date if they could see what is happening energetically. The energy […]

Dating Stats... where to go

Dating Stats… where to go

LA Dating Stats: Where To Go and What To Do To mark their one millionth date, an innovative dating site called HowAboutWe (which I – shameless plug here — wrote about in my book Internet Dating 101) shared the data on the most popular dating spots in various cities across America.

Single & Mingling

Single & Mingling

Where should you go if you’re single and ready to mingle? I’m not going to sugar-coat this for you, and I’m sure you won’t be surprised, but I absolutely loathe New Year’s Eve. Not to sound sour, but there’s so much anticipation, so much effort, into ringing in the New Year in style that inevitably, […]

Tis the Season... How to Avoid Christmas Breakups

Tis the Season… How to Avoid Christmas Breakups

It might be easier to feel like a Grinch this holiday season after seeing the results of an infographic from We Love Dates stating that the 12 days of Christmas are a peak time for breakups. But just because the odds are against you doesn’t mean you can’t beat the system, right? That was rhetorical, […]

Who's asking who on a date?

Who’s asking who on a date?

Should You Ever Ask A Guy Out? Picture this: You’ve been chatting up an attractive man at a bar. Let’s call him “Frank”. As you and Frank get ready to part ways, it becomes obvious he’s not going to ask for your number. Feeling bold, you get your “gurrrl’ power on and ask for his […]

Finding Love Based on Career Choices

Finding Love Based on Career Choices

Can you find love based on compatible career choices? I think it’s fairly obvious that I never mince bones with my words and tell you exactly how I feel (which, of course, does not always work in my favor), and so I shall continue to play it straight. I think a new ‘study’ by eHarmony is […]

Happiness in Love... Co-worker dating?

Happiness in Love… Co-worker dating?

Dating A Co-Worker Might Not Be Smart…But Should It Be Illegal? Based on personal experience (ahem) I can say that dating a co-worker isn’t the smartest thing the average human can do, but does it have to be such a bad move that it’s practically…illegal? One Tennessee law enforcer thinks so, at least. Sheriff David […]

Happiness in Love… Pleasure & Pain

THE ALLURE OF FIFTY SHADES OF GREY If you haven’t yet heard of Fifty Shades of Grey, you’re probably living under a rock…or chained up in a basement. This is the smut novel to end all smut novels, and women everywhere are falling for its enigmatic, mysterious, sadistic (and sad) leading man, Christian Grey. Author […]

Happiness in Love... Abstinence

Happiness in Love… Abstinence

Does Abstinence Make the Heart Grow Fonder? Why wait? A big to-do is being made over nothing this month…literally. Abstinence has been a hot topic of conversation lately and I, for one, am not on board with it. Why deny yourself pleasure? By definition, abstinence is: ‘The fact or practice of restraining oneself from indulging […]

Happiness in Love: Men are like…

Why Men Are Like Fruit Flies When you’re down in the dumps, what do you do? Me, I grab a sappy movie like Sleepless in Seattle or Love, Actually, that will make me feel even worse that I already do, a bottle of Barefoot Pinot Noir and cupcakes/candy/frozen yogurt. I sit my not-so-bony butt in […]

Happiness in Love... Kids?

Happiness in Love… Kids?

My Friends Are Having Kids….So Why Am I Still Acting Like One? I’m not going to pretend for the sake of an article that I really know what it’s like to have friends with kids. I have male friends that act like giant babies and two former sorority sisters who’ve done a nice job populating […]

The Love Contract Until now, the only ‘love contract’ I’ve ever heard of is what’s called a ‘marriage license’ in most familiar circles. But because of a rise in workplace sexual harassment, certain employers are having their workers sign documents providing written confirmation that any romantic workplace relationship they engage in is voluntary along with […]

Love is….forgetting to remember your reasons for loving The Vow: A Soulmate Story It’s hard enough finding true love even once in a lifetime, don’t you agree? Though we all play games and jump through hoops to make our relationships work, in the right kind of relationship, everything just works out organically. There’s no confusion […]

Happiness in Love

V DAY When people speak about Valentine’s Day, it is often referred to as a Hallmark holiday, created by the card company for commercial reasons. Men think so because they’re forced to buy embarrassing gifts like pink teddy bears (or embarrass themselves by picking out underwear at Victoria’s Secret), and all single girls think so […]

Happiness is… HOPE WE MET ON A PLANE: MISSED CONNECTIONS FOR THE AIRBORNE Don’t you love the thought of meeting a handsome (or beautiful, if you happen to be a man) stranger in the sky? There’s something so romantic about it. Forget the stale air, the tasteless food — or lack of food, as it […]

Happiness in Love

How To Meet Men Anywhere: Confidence…And A Few Pheromones I felt a bit like Alice in Wonderland yesterday when I opened my mailbox to find a package — no name, no note — including a little black bottle with pretty red writing reading “Erox.” Was I receiving hate mail? Would I grow even smaller than […]

Happiness in Love

Goodbye Seems To Be The Hardest Word   By Laura Schreffler I knew that, in writing this piece, every sappy love song ever recorded would annoyingly flit through my mind like an entire Celine Dion album on repeat. You know what that means, friends: this could get ugly for everyone involved. Last week I took […]

Gwyneth Paltrow can separate affection for friends from the wicked things they do. Can you? By Laura Schreffler In 2008, 18% of all married couples had admitted to cheating on their husband or wife. I am not even close to being married, so this stat isn’t as important to me as finding out just how […]

Why we should focus on love instead of talking about sex, baby By Laura Schreffler Sex, sex, sex. Everywhere I turn lately I feel like I’m reading something about the horizontal tango, the vertical cha-cha or the wheelbarrow twist (made that one up). Sure, sex is an important part of a relationship — but what happens […]
