If you're dating someone Jewish, there's a good possibility that you'll be invited to his or her family's Passover celebration. This is awesome for you: not only will you get to get in good with the family, but you'll get to eat a lot of delicious food, as well! (Oh - and share in a religious celebration that is meaningful to your significant other, etc., etc.)
Of course, attending a religious event that's unfamiliar to you can be stressful, especially when you're worried about making a good impression on your boyfriend or girlfriend's family. Here are some tips that will ensure that it all goes smoothly.
1. Dress Nicely!
Passover is a big deal, so dress nicely (and conservatively!) when you show up for dinner. You also might want to ask your significant other how his or her family feels about modesty.
"I was planning to wear a sleeveless dress to dinner, but luckily my boyfriend reminded me to bring a cardigan because his mother always covers her

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love condoms but they just aren't Star Wars-y enough for me. Thank goodness Italian designer Benedetto Papi crawled into my brain, unlocked the secrets to my sex fantasies, and turned it all into a reality with these Star Wars condom designs.

We could all use a refresher on being better in bed.
By Chiara Atik for HowAboutWe
Men's Fitness has a post today called "5 Sex Moves You Think She Likes, But Doesn't," which was refreshing to see after last week's infamous Esquire essayon why women aren't as good as they think (at pleasing men) in bed.
The truth of the matter is, of course, that men and women share equal responsibility when it comes to having good sex, and as very few people are natural born sex gods, both genders could probably use some improving now and then.Related: 5 Easy Ways to Be Better At Sex
So here's what Men's Fitness says we should avoid doing in bed. (Ladies and gentlemen, take note!)
1. All Booksmart, and no Street Smart
You can know every diagram in the Kama Sutra and have years of experience of closely watching instructional videos (porn), but knowing the rules and actually playing the game are two very different things.

It seems like just yesterday we were talking about women orgasming all over the gym. But now, here's the bad news.

I know it seems like just yesterday we were talking about women orgasming all over the gym, which might have made you take a spin class or pull out the ol' 10-speed. But it might have been good to know this first: while going to the gym might be good (fun) for your vagina, riding a bike might be bad.
Researchers are piggybacking off a 2006 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine that found that "female cyclists had less genital sensation compared with a control group of female runners. As a result, some scientists believe that female cyclists probably are at similar risk for sexual problems as male riders." The 2012 studyfocuses on whether there are specific factors that influence soreness and numbness among female riders. (Thanks for racing to that one, researchers. We've been waiting. Pins and needles.)
If he drinks local organic microbrew that tastes like Coors Light, you might be dating an hipster.
By Dave K. For HowAboutWe
So I'm sure your new boyfriend is really nice and all, but he might be a hipster. Or not - it can be hard to tell. "Hipster" has become such a broad, general term that most people aren't really sure how to define it anymore.
Luckily for you, I've developed a handy questionnaire to help you determine whether or not you're dating a hipster. Give yourself one point for each A answer, two points for B, three for C, and four for D.
1. What is he wearing right now?Related: The Dangers of Dating Someone You Feel "Meh" About
a. Khakis and a polo shirt
b. Jeans and a t-shirt
c. Skinny jeans and thrift store t-shirt
d. Above-the-knee denim cut-offs and a thrift store t-shirt he said he hated three days ago
2. Is he in a band?
b. Yes, he plays drums.
c. Yes, he plays guitar.
d. No, he's over music.
3. What does he use social media for, primarily?
a. Keeping up with his family and friendsRead More »from 8 Ways to Tell If You’re Dating a Hipster

The following day — and in what I would consider stereotypically Segel-ese fashion — he was seen accompanying Williams's six year-old daughter, Matilda, as she made some turns on her scooter.
Step aside, every other couple in Hollywood: Michelle Williams and Jason Segel, aka two of the most awesome people to ever be dubbed by the double-edged sword that is celebrity, are dating. We're obviously rooting for this one to work out, and why shouldn't it? She's one of contemporary cinema's most selective and dynamic actresses, countenancing each of her (typically morbid) roles with serious integrity and panache. He's the quintessential nice guy: funny, endearing, overtly frank in that calculated way that's meant to cast him as the perfect foil to your archetypal bad-boy/@$$hole. Sounds to me like they share that enviable romantic alchemy that consists of a) having enough common interests to not bore the s*** out of each other, yet b) not so much cognitive overlap that they'll be stuck in a perpetual game of oneupsmanship.Related: 10 Things Women Notice About Men
