Wouldn't you like somebody to love? It seems most of Hollywood thinks they do. So many celebrities jump in and out of relationships that we need a scorecard to keep track. Just when we they've got it right, Cupid's pulse hits a flat line. If celebrities can't keep their relationships together, we wonder: can we? Take beloved Sandra Bullock, left standing at the altar of her professional accomplishments, Oscar in hand, gushingly thanking her beloved Jesse James - only to find he has been screwing around behind her back. Naturally, she instantly dumps him. We also keep hoping that Jennifer Aniston will find her special love. Her ex, Brad Pitt, appears to have a great thing going with Angelina Jolie - at least for now. Then, there's David Arquette, who was dumped by Courteney Cox. One celebrity couple who appears to have it all is Sarah and Matthew Broderick (if we disregard the pre-marital tabloid fodder). And at least we've got Jeff

The vacation destination theme continued on week six of ABC's The Bachelor as Brad Womack and the remaining eight bachelorettes took another trip - this time, to Costa Rica. With the lush green landscape, a waterfall and a volcano view from The Springs Resort and Spa, what's not to like about week six?
Simple: Michelle, who, despite all her complaining and minor physical assault on Brad, is still in the running to be his wife. But we'll get to her later.
If you're a twenty or thirty-something who has put your climb up the corporate ladder (in Louboutin heels, of course) or achieving your personal dreams, ahead of the traditional 3-step plan-get married, get pregnant, and live happily ever after (or get divorced), you will see married couples with kids or newlyweds with babies on the way, everywhere you look.Read More »from When Friends Have Babies and You Have Your Career
And, if you're anything like me-an unmarried thirty-something who loves her career, lives with her boyfriend, and whose biological clock only ticks to adopt a dog right now, then you understand the questions it raises when surrounded by those who have made starting and raising a family their business of choice.
I've worked through this biological paradox and have helped hundreds of my clients do the same. Here are my top four suggestions:

Get ready to rumble! On Feb. 6, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers will face off in Arlington, Texas to battle it out for the Super Bowl XLV title. But don't think sports junkies will be the only ones in the stands - the football extravaganza is an event many stars attend. Which celebrity couples will make it to Cowboys Stadium on Sunday?
Five-time Grammy winner Christina Aguilera will perform the National Anthem. Since the singer's recent divorce from her husband of five years, Jordan Bratman, she has been dating Burlesque set assistant, Matthew D. Rutler. We can count on the couple to arrive together, since their relationship is said to be getting "serious."
Another serious couple sure to attend the Super Bowl is Fergie and her husband, Josh Duhamel. Her Grammy Award-winning group, the Black Eyed Peas, will take the stage during the Half-time show. According to USMagazine.com, the couple renewed their wedding vows earlier this month. But

With love on everyone's mind on Valentine's Day, it's no surprise that HBO chose Feb. 14 to premiere a documentary chronicling the new avenue to find love in the 21st century - online dating. When Strangers Click: Five Stories From the Internet tells the stories of individuals who have explored Internet dating.
Knowing the documentary would premiere on Cupid's big day, our friends at Single Edition invited us to an advanced screening in New York City, which featured a Q&A with Robert Kenner of the Oscar-nominated Food, Inc., who both directed and produced the film. The audience included 12 to 15 dating and relationship bloggers based in the city.
For anybody who has ventured into online romance - or for those who are just curious about discovering love on the web - When Strangers Click is worth checking out. This movie both resonates with and intrigues viewers, resulting in a very entertaining one-hour special.

Cupid's Pulse got a chance to watch this week's episode of ABC's The Bachelor with Bachelor Pad winner and author of The Man Code, David L. Good. The event was at the Village Pourhouse in downtown New York City, and many ladies (and a few gents) came out to talk to David, take pictures, check out his book and watch the fifth episode with him. I have to admit, it was both cool and weird to watch the show with a former contestant - as you guys remember, David was on season 5 of The Bachelorette with Jillian Harris. Hearing David's take definitely added a unique perspective. Read on for our recap of last night's episode and his advice for season 15 contestant Brad Womack:

Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock. Photo: O'Neill-White/INF; Peter Brooker/REX USAJust about everyone loves America's sweetheart Sandra Bullock. She showed such grace and charm winning the Golden Globe Award just months after filing for divorce following the devastating cheating scandal with ex-hubby Jesse James. Bullock maintained her dignity while her husband's tawdry affairs were displayed on just about every magazine cover. Most of us couldn't image the pain she was going through.
Now the grocery store checkout lane is displaying Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in a rebound romance. Bullock divorced Jesse James in June 2010, while Reynolds' marriage with Scarlett Johansson just ended a few weeks ago.
Besides the fact that rebound relationships usually lead to heartbreak, neither of the stars have very good partner picking skills. Bullock's past attraction to a bad boy biker (who just announced his impending fourth marriage to Kat Von D)
