  • How to Handle the Morning After a One Night Stand

    By Daniela Agurcia for

    You're single, and you're on the prowl with your friends on a Friday night out. You meet a hot potential one-night-stand at the bar, you find yourself having casual conversation and a drink that turns into laughter and some more drinks, and eventually you're dancing with each other and saying, "Let's get out of here." Throughout this entire spontaneous and exciting night, you don't tend to hold back, and maybe that's exactly what you need at the time.

    With a flirtatious night that leads you back to their place, the last thing on your mind is how the next morning will be. In the moment, you find yourself feeling as if you've known this person for months while chatting, laughing, and dancing away with them, and then the next morning will most likely be soberly...awkward. Here are some ways to prepare yourself for the morning after a one night stand:

    Before stepping into the dating world, you should always know your target audience. In the animal kingdom, you do not see zebras reproducing with monkeys. Know your type in terms of looks, personality, goals, interests, etc. Don't date a partier if that isn't your thing; don't date a bore if you like adventure; and don't date a religious zealot if you never want to step foot in a church. You will just be wasting your time, and your relationship will likely be doomed from the start.

    With that thought in mind, here are our top 10 dating dos and don'ts:

    1. Be positive and warm. Always smile, and don't be a Debbie Downer. Check out when you're not feeling chemistry, as it can come back and haunt you later - remember that it's a small world, and everybody knows everybody. Be your own PR person; you never know if he will introduce you to his brother, cousin or friend. You always want to

  • Is it Time to Update Your Facebook Relationship Status?

    By Ashley DelBello for

    It's not official until it's on Facebook. We've all heard this before. And as Facebook recently hit its one-billionth user, it's becoming truer in almost every aspect of life, including relationships. With some, Facebook has even replaced having the "the talk" with "can we update our relationship status on Facebook yet?" A little extreme, but as Facebook is the one of the most prominent social networking sites relationship statuses are now an important milestone in dating.

    So when do you update your Facebook relationship status? Too soon and you may have to publically face going from "in a relationship" back to "single" before your next date (which has now been cancelled). If you wait too long, your significant other can become irritated and it could start to cause problems as it may be more important to them than you realize.

    Follow these simple rules when considering updating your relationship status:

  • Dating After Divorce: How Soon is Too Soon?

    By Marni Battista for

    There is a certain philosophy that touts the best way to get over someone as getting under someone else. When we peruse the headlines and photos that cover those magazines at the check-out line, it seems clear that most Hollywood celebs certainly subscribe to this way of thinking.

    Although Kim Kardashian's divorce from Kris Humphries isn't even finalized, there's talk about Kanye West designing her engagement ring. Plus, we've seen photos of their romantic trip to Italy for her birthday and heard rumors of them moving in together. Her recent marriage, albeit a short one, should have still been a significant part of her romantic life. It seems as though it's long forgotten - almost as if it didn't exist at all.

    Thus, we wonder, when is "too early" to start dating after divorce? Here are a few lessons learned from Kimye's whirlwind romance and a few tips on navigating the dating world after divorce and answering the question, "How soon

  • Celebrity Couples Who Let an Affair Ruin Their Relationship

  • Falling in Love: When to Say the L-Word for the First Time

    By Sarah Ribeiro for

    You and your significant other have been together for quite some time now. You've experienced great dates, bad dates, and more romantic adventures than most couples you know. You've met the parents, made plans for the future, and have even discussed living together. There's just one thing you haven't done, and it's a rather large elephant in the room: said "I love you."

  • How to Understand Man-Talk

    By David Wygant for

    How many times have you tried to interpret man-talk? Woman-talk is the polar opposite of man-talk. It is all about feelings. It is all about coming home, talking about your day, and getting it all out in the open. But man-talk is different. Man-talk requires some time apart so he can sort out what he's thinking and feeling. For women, it requires some patience not to bother him and to let him work it out on his own.

    For instance, what happens when your man retreats and goes into his cave for a day? Think about it: How many times have you been dating a man, and he just goes into silent mode, driving you crazy? You want to talk about your feelings as they happen, but he needs to process his feelings before he feels comfortable talking about it.

    When men go in their caves, women want to pull them out as quickly as possible. But here's the deal: that's not the most effective way to deal with their mood at that moment.

    So next time he
