We'll spare you the "Summer Lovin'" Grease lyrics and get right to the point: Do men really want a summer fling? Can it ever lead to something more? Read on to find out what these real-life Jersey Shore regulars think.
You know those Internet-dating ads on TV, with their casual arm touches and delicious-looking pastas, the couple laughing at each other's jokes like they're on ecstasy? Fantasy. Most first dates are two-hour displays of nerves, insecurities and awkwardness-with occasional bathroom breaks. But I've learned, through much trial and error, that they don't have to be; they can actually be downright fun…and sexy.

If you get nervous about a first date (or a second or third, for that matter), consider: He invited you/accepted your invitation to dinner, so he's not looking for a reason to rule you out. He wants to get to know who you are, show you who he is and find out who you both could be to each other. So skip the deep breaths, and never mind the warm-up glass of wine. If you want to relax and enjoy your date, just read Jake's handy list of things you don't have to worry about.

Are you guys Kate Middleton-ed out yet? If not, read on to find out which conditioning treatment reportedly contributes to her insanely shiny hair.
As you may have heard by now amidst all the crazy press coverage surrounding the royal wedding, for about 8 years, Kate Middleton has gone to the Richard Ward salon in London (that's also where she got her wedding-day half-up hairstyle done by stylist James Pryce). She reportedly regularly gets conditioning treatments called Kerastase Rituals to keep her hair shiny and healthy looking, and at home uses Kerastase shampoo and conditioner formulated for dry hair.
Of course, I suspect 90 percent of Kate's hair glossiness is due to genetic blessedness. But those fancy products can't hurt either.
Do you guys ever get conditioning or glossing treatments at the salon? Does this tidbit about Kate make you consider doing so?
