Guys Don't Think Red Vaginas Are Sexy
Research has repeatedly shown that men are drawn to women wearing the color red, and some scientists theorized that they love the hue because it reminds them of a woman's vagina.

They rated the red va-jay-jays as the least attractive of the bunch.
Women Care About Other People

How do you feel when you spend a night apart?
If you feel kinda relieved to have your space to yourself for a bit, you may not be ready to share an address, says Cindy Butler, Executive Director of the Alternatives to Marriage project.

Achieve Facial Harmony
Celebrity make-up artist Troy Surratt says a monochromatic look is classically feminine. So mix a bit of your lipstick (whether red, poppy pink, or coral) with moisturizer to make a cream blush and dab it on the apples of your cheeks.
Don't See Red
On pollen-filled spring days when you know your allergies will be acting up, Surratt advises to stay away from green eye makeup because it makes your eyes look even more bloodshot. Instead, go for midnight or navy blue shadow, since it has an optical effect, leaving the whites of your eyes looking brighter.
Fuller eyebrows have surpassed their overly plucked, thin counterpart as today's arch of choice. But all of those untweezed hairs can get a little unruly. Surratt suggests brushing them up using a toothbrush spritzed with hairspray to put them in

"My girlfriend and I met while playing intermural softball. One day, I gunned the ball over to her a little too hard and ended up breaking her ring finger. It would've been easy for her to play the blame game in that situation, but she really toughed it out. I found a first aid kit, tended to her hand, and we soon ended up kissing. I knew she was special, a girl chill enough to kiss the guy who'd just broken her finger, and her reaction really clued me into how she would handle crappy situations in the future."
"One girl I was seeing had heard me mention that 'Landslide' was one of my favorite songs because it reminded me of my mother, who loved it. After we'd been hanging out for a week, I

Cop a Feel
Touching a guy you're into is a major pro-flirt move-it subtly makes him think about where your hands could go later. The right move: casually touching his shoulder, arm, or knee when you're talking.
Keep Your Distance
A crowded bar or party gives you an excuse to get extra close to a hot guy, but getting too close is a serious rookie move. Greene advises not standing closer than an arm's length to him: "When people are that close to us, our natural inclination is to move away." In other words, let him come to you.

He Bowls a 70
You Say: "Want me to see if we can get you some bumpers?"
Why It Works: Ever heard your man talk to his friends? Trash-talking is how they communicate. In this situation, you're acknowledging what he already knows (he really sucks at bowling) without throwing him a pity party, which will only make him feel worse.
He Spills His Beer-Again
You Say: "Aw, usually you don't start doing that till your 9th beer."
Why It Works: Most women freak when a spill happens. Playing it cool-and teasing him in the process-lets your man know it doesn't faze you when he's not his usual suave self. Related: What His Body
