It's mid-May; the flowers are blooming, the weather is warm, and best of all, summer is right around the corner. But what does that mean for your spring fling? If you're currently in the middle of a springtime romance, these tips will help you figure out whether your relationship will continue blossom this summer - or wilt in the heat:
1. You let your guard down: If you feel comfortable confiding in this person about your personal issues, you've definitely reached a relationship milestone. After all, communication is key to any partnership. Also, ladies: if your guy has seen you sans makeup, you're beyond the point of feeling as if you need to get dolled up in his presence - another sign you've found someone with lasting power.
2. You've met the friends: If your other half starts bringing you around his or her crew, it's a sign they are seeking approval from their inner circle. Bonus points if there's hand-holding when you're with others; this

Though Valentine's Day gets credit for being the biggest day of love, Memorial Day should be known as the day of fresh beginnings. Although it's not officially summer, its presence symbolizes the new season and puts immediate energy back into dating, relationships and celebrations. It's the kickoff to so many great memories of the past and more to make in the future - backyard barbecues, laying out at the beach and summer travel.
Whether you're settled down with someone or fired up and looking for love, here are a few ways to make sure you have a Memorial Day (or weekend) to remember:
1. Head to the beach: There's no better way to enjoy a long weekend than by spending time soaking in the warm weather, especially if you live near an ocean or lake. If you're landlocked, don't despair - just get creative. Create a beach theme in your backyard, or find a local swimming pool where you can soak and sun yourself simultaneously. If you're single, strike up

We've all had a moment when we've stared wide eyed in utter shock at the TV screen after finding out our favorite celebrity couple has split, trying to figure out what went wrong. After all, this pair seemed to be in such a happy relationship!
There will always be famous duos that we think about months (or ever years!) down the line, wondering if they'll ever reconcile. While the possibility may be a long shot, no one can help wishful thinking. With that said, here are five celebrity couples we would like to reunite:
1. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake: The famous singers first met in 1993 on the sets of The Mickey Mouse Club and began dating five years later. They were everyone's favorite celebrity couple in the late 90's, but their relationship ended in 2002. After their breakup, Timberlake released 'Cry Me A River,' a revenge song for Ms. Spears herself. As much as everyone loved this musical duo it doesn't seem like they'll ever get back

Prince Charles and Lady Di didn't…and it cost the Prince more than 17 million pounds ($27 million today) during their divorce. As you can imagine, as much as people were chatting about what Kate's dress would look like, just as many were speculating about whether William and Kate would sign a prenup.
As we reflect on the royal wedding, here is a statistic to ponder: the number one cause for divorce is miscommunication about money. In most cases, it's better to "get it all on the table" versus waiting until it's too late. Many wonder whether signing a prenup is setting them up for divorce. The answer is, no. There are some very practical reasons to have one in place.

Known as "The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports" because of its rapid duration, the Kentucky Derby is a combination of old-time tradition and the fast-paced fanaticism of sports betting. Love and luck will both be in the air on May 7 - a love for the "sport of kings" and desire for the luck it takes to see something amazing happen. If you're planning on making the trip to Churchill Downs, you might see a few amazing celebrities as well.
Here are a few of the past celebrity couples that have been to the Derby:

The Cinco de Mayo holiday was founded on May 5, 1862. On that day, General Zaragosa led the Mexican army to defeat a French force nearly twice their size. It was one of the biggest military victories ever for Mexico, allowing the Union to build an unstoppable army. Today, America and Mexico both celebrate Cinco de Mayo each year to uphold the values of liberty and national pride.
In other words, there's no reason to feel out of place on Cinco de Mayo, no matter what nationality you are. Go out with someone you love (or go out looking for someone to love) and celebrate the holiday. In honor of the fifth of May, here are five ways to get into the espíritu de la celebración:

People are still transfixed by Charlie Sheen. Some clinical speculation about his behavior has suggested the ravages of drug addiction or an untreated bipolar episode. While all of this may be true, to me, it looks like unbridled narcissism in full fury.
The go-to definition of narcissism is thinking only of oneself. However, when you use the word narcissist you are really making a much bigger statement. A narcissist is not only selfish but actually lacks the ability to think of anyone else. Most narcissists are masters at turning things around so they're the ones being wronged, and they make it appear that they are doing you a favor by letting you make it up to them. They are typically self-righteous and have an exaggerated sense of entitlement that leads them to believe they deserve everything and more. When they don't get what they want, they get angry and their rage knows no bounds.
