Here are some signs that you need to push that idea back a little.

  • How to Break Up with a Nice Guy

    Sergio De DivitiisBreaking up with a nice guy is never an easy thing to do. He may do everything you've ever wanted, but if you're still not into him don't think that one day you'll just wake up and fall in love. You have to break it off and there's a right way to do it. Relationship expert Dr. Michelle Callahan gave us her best tips.

    By Ariel Nagi

    Think it through first
    Make sure you really do want to let him go. "Is it better or worse than other relationships you've had in the past? Remember, the grass always looks greener on the other side! Some women find 'good' guys boring until they hook-up with a 'bad boy' and then realize that drama is overrated," Callahan says. If you know in your heart that there is no chemistry, then it's best that you break up. But if you're just afraid he's "too nice," you may be overlooking your own feelings and worried about his.

    Be sensitive
    Think about what you want to say and be imagine his reactions so you're prepared. "If he's really awesome he's going to

  • Why Summer Holidays Make People Want to Cheat

    CosmopolitanBy Ariel Nagi

    Ohh holidays. Nothing like spending time with your family, mingling...and getting sick and tired of seeing your partner's face, right? According to Victoria Milan, a site for married and attached people seeking affairs (yeah, I know), people are more likely to cheat during holidays, AKA the times when we are around our partners the most. So just when you thought your partner was spending all that quality time with you, he or she could be sneaking out to spend QT with a lover.

    Of the 4,652 male and female members surveyed, the most common reason to spend a holiday with a secret lover was due to lack of sex with their partners. So not only are they annoyed, they're not getting sex. This makes sense because people tend to get a little wound up and busy during holidays (although we'd argue you're never too busy for a quickie).

    MagazineCosmopolitan For Latinas' very own web intern Thalia Ortiz shares her tips on how to rock your internship to the fullest! Here are 5 things you should do and 5 things you should never do.

    By Thalía Ortiz

    Remember how ridiculously mean Miranda (Meryl Streep) in the Devil Wears Prada was to Andy (Anne Hathaway) while she was working at Runway magazine? As much as I love watching that movie (it's one of my favorites), I couldn't help but get crazy nervous the night before my first internship ever at Cosmo for Latinas. I knew diddly squat about the magazine world and thought for sure that I would get chewed out by a Miranda-type for screwing up like Andy.

    I was completely wrong and have met so many people at CFL who are like a family willing to help interns get their foot in the door and patiently show them the ropes. I seriously have the coolest internship and I've learned a couple of things along the way to be the best intern I can possibly be. Whether you're planning on getting an

  • Keeping Your Family Out of Your Relationship

    Chris Clinton Feel like you're in a relationship with your partner and family at the same time? We've been there. Here's how to spot it and stop it before it causes some serious damage.

    By Ariel Nagi

    Schedule time to catch up with them

    When it seems like they always want to know what is going on in your life, fix it by setting aside a dinner date or get together at least once a month. This way you can catch up about what's going on in your life as a couple, and share it with your family. If you live together, it's a little difficult to limit it to once a month, so eat in with your parents at least once a week. When you're spending time with them often, it'll keep them from feeling like they need to snoop around to see what's going on in your love life.

    By Thalía Ortiz

    Stay away from dark food and drinks

    Ladies, everyday dark food and drinks are wreaking havoc on your chompers. What sucks is that blueberries, coffee, tea, soda, wine and cranberry juice, just to name a few, fall into this category. Let's be real though, it's unrealistic to give up your morning coffee cold turkey.

    The best thing you can do is use a straw so that these stainers don't get all over your teeth. When you drink that glass of wine after a long day of work, swish your mouth out with water after. When you eat or drink
