Hookup with this nerd once and only once.Ah, college. It's like the brand-new semi-adult version of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Waffles for dinner. Sweatpants to class. Caffeine in the middle of the night. You kids is crazy! While your young mind is being molded and your young body is still pliable enough not to want to quit after five bottles of Stella Artois and go to sleep, here are the boys you will have undoubtedly outgrown by the time you receive your (useless) liberal arts degree - but are essential to date and/or hook up with and/or sensually eat dining hall cheese fries with in the meantime.
And if it ever gets boring, just remember how awesome you thought dating college guys was in high school. That always worked for me.

9. The floormate/housemate.
After you leave school, any unwise hookup decisions will probably be made in the context of the workplace. But that's even more inappropriate. Wouldn't you rather just get it out of your system and bang the cute guy who writes Arrested Development

Stephanie Marquez and Mehdi Arma recently got married at City Hall. It's 8:30 AM at New York's City Hall and the party is in full swing. Hundreds of couples are about to get married in tuxedos and gowns, cowboy hats and prom dresses, flip flops and jorts. The mood is radically happy-like being at the DMV if everyone was on ecstasy.Read More »from Stories of 8 Real Couples Getting Married at City Hall
I chatted up eight different couples about the one thing that every person on earth wants: Ryan Gosling, I mean, true love. Grab a box of tissues and find a place where you can ugly-cry because these are some seriously romantic stories.

1. Stephanie Marquez, 27, sales assistant & Mehdi Arma, 28, facilities for Showtime
How did you two meet?
Stephanie: We met via an app for the iPhone called MiUMeet.
Mehdi: It was meant to be.
Were you nervous on your first date?
Stephanie: I wasn't nervous, but I was getting to the point where I was like, "If this guy is not decent, I'm gonna stop dating for a while." But then he turned out to be amazing.
Mehdi: She was perfect. She wasn't a psycho or a
Decode a guy by what he wears to the beach.Scoping a guy's swim trunks can help you size up his...boyfriend potential. (Wait, what'd you think we were going to say?)
1. A Solid Dark Color
ABOUT THE SUIT: He could've gone bright, bold-anything but plain. His simple pick shows that he's a traditionalist at heart.
ABOUT THE SUITOR: He'll be reliable and loyal as your main man, so going on real dates will be the status quo, not worthy of a status update. But he's not very spontaneous, so your time with him could get routine.
2. A Tropical Pattern
ABOUT THE SUIT: Pura vida, baby. As his island suit shows, he keeps the carefree vibes (and probably the tequila) a-flowin'.
ABOUT THE SUITOR: He'll bring a relaxed "whatever, man" outlook to your relationship. But he could be too perma vacay and not really worth your salt in the long run. Better save it for your margarita glass!

Guys are suddenly the ones interested in how many calories they're consuming.

A couple of weeks ago, I Gchatted my friend Matt* to see if he wanted to get Sunday brunch at one of our favorite fancy egg joints. His reply? "Can't-I'm not eating fried food right now, and they don't have salads there." I was bummed-I really wanted those gooey fried eggs with hash browns! But I was also mystified. Had Matt joined the growing ranks of dieting guys who my friends have been encountering on dates, at their jobs, and everywhere else?
Amy R., a 33-year-old personal trainer in New York City, told me that she'd started dating a guy and everything was going great…until she asked if he wanted to grab a late dinner one night. "I don't eat past 9 p.m.," he replied. "Wanna go for a run instead? It's healthier." Buzzkill! Jessica S., a

Jason Darling recently released a breast-milk flavored sucker. O, the female body in all its natural wonder! Some gross/amazing stuff happens to us when we're new moms, and the brave souls among us try to emulate the Native Americans and make use of it all. Those women in Brooklyn who serve their own placentas as dinner party hors d'oeuvres, for instance. Nothing about the miracle of pregnancy is shameful... but does that mean you have to enjoy breast milk lollipops? No.Read More »from Breast Milk Lollipops Were Just Invented in Texas (Paging Dr. Freud)

Texas-based vegan lollipop maker Jason Darling runs Lollyphile, which ain't no Chupa Chup-their other flavors include absinthe, Sriracha, habanero tequila, maple bacon and chocolate bacon. Two days ago, he released Lollyphile's piece de resistance, a breast-milk flavored sucker developed after Darling taste-tested multiple women's lactation samples until coming up with the precise right flavor profile. (No actual breast milk is used in the pops.)

Brian Whitehead was recently on trial after putting an unidentifiable object up a woman's skirt.Some men have an excuse for everything-why they're always late, why they bailed on your date, why they forgot your anniversary.Read More »from Peeping Tom or Fart-Loving Pyro? You Decide
But we'd bet that no excuse you've ever heard from a guy can top this one: A British guy named Brian Whitehead was recently on trial after he was spotted putting an unidentifiable object up a woman's skirt at a bar, which prosecutors thought might have been a camera.
By Natasha Burton
Not so, said Whitehead. He wasn't trying to take a photo of a woman's nether regions: He was-maybe-trying to light her fart on fire.
Yep, that's right. (We'll give you minute to collect yourself before giving you his full statement.)
Related: The Worst Excuses We've Ever Heard
Apparently, Whitehead told police after he was accused via surveillance footage: "Maybe I was trying to light a fart. It could have been a joke. Maybe someone says 'I bet you a fiver if you light her fart.'"
Yeah. Maybe. Or maybe you're just a creepy perv who thinks everyone else is a

1. Squinting to read the small type on your screen
HOW IT'S MESSING WITH YOU "I have a surge of 20somethings coming in with crow's-feet and 11 lines-the vertical furrows between the brows-which normally don't show up until your 30s or 40s," says NYC derm Dendy Engelman, MD.
QUICK FIX Increase your font size to "Grandma" (20 points or bigger), and up your screen's brightness. If Botox seems extreme, try a moisturizer made with argireline (like DDF's, right), which temporarily "freezes" muscle movements. "Some studies show up to a 60 percent reduction in wrinkle depth in one month," says Dr. Engelman.

1. Amy Poehler: Self-Proclaimed Feminist
After learning that Taylor Swift was upset with her Golden Globes joke, Amy let the world know: "Aw, I feel bad if [Taylor] was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff."
2. Stephanie Meyer: Girlfriend-Loving Feminist
"I think there are many feminists who would say that I am not a feminist. I love women, I have a lot of girlfriends, I admire them, they make so much more sense to me than men, and I feel like the world is a better place when women are in charge. So that kind of by default makes me a feminist. I love
WHAT?! Kids have strong desires to be tan.When I was younger, getting a tan was pretty much my only goal for the summer. That is, until I realized that routine sun exposure would make me look like an old leather handbag someday if I wasn't careful-not to mention that it could lead to deadly cancer.Read More »from Kids Start Coveting a Tan at Scarily Young Ages

It's a good thing I traded my baby oil for sunscreen sooner rather than later: According to a company spokesperson for Superdrug, which just released the results of a poll on sun exposure, the average person gets 80 percent of his or her lifetime skin-to-sun contact before hitting age 18.

Of course, this means that slathering on the sunblock is super-important when you're young. Only, scarily enough, the Superdrug poll found that 50 percent of children age six to eight are jonesing for a tan this summer and one in five say they won't wear suncreen. Um...where are their parents?
We just hope this doesn't lead to a creation of a Tan Kid. Tan Mom is quite enough for us.

Guys with engagement ring funds want to avoid pulling a Joey.We've heard of girls saving up for their wedding dresses way before they even have a man. But a completely single guy stashing money away for an engagement ring? That's unheard of...until now.Read More »from "I'm a Guy with an Engagement Ring Fund"
By Juan Garcia
Ten years before he would ever meet and propose to his wife, my longtime friend and former roommate Ian invested in a diamond for a future engagement ring. He was 100 percent single at the time.
His engagement ring fund began when he was 18. Ian's father knew an old German Gemologist and encouraged him to start saving up for a rock. "It's a smart thing to do," his dad said. The idea behind this early investment was simple: He knew a wife would eventually come into his life and diamonds don't really go down in value. Why not get a jump on one of the biggest purchases in life? Inspired by his father's wise words, Ian began putting his pennies away and asked the jeweler to keep an eye out for a quality stone that was well-priced. It wasn't too long before the jeweler
