Happily Never After & the BLOW OFF

Editor's Note: Love this guest post from our loyal reader Vivienne.  I think many of us can relate... if you are still picking up the pieces long after the break-up, then this is a must read for you.

Being a girl and growing up on Disney, you get pretty attached to that story of a girl who meets her Prince Charming. They find each other, and both fall head over heels and then ride into the sunset to a perfect fairytale ending. Well, reality is NOT like that and is anything but. To any sane person, I’m probably just stating the obvious, that the story is exactly what it is – simply a fairytale. So then who the hell said that fairytales/dreams do come true? And Katy Perry’s song: “if it’s not like the movies, then that’s how it should be”… pretty sure she was singing about Russell Brand on that track, and we all know how that ended up (spoil alert: DIVORCE).

But putting aside the unrealistic fairytale (because as if we’re all damsels in distress who find our happy ending with a handsome prince in under 2 hours). Who out there has ever met a guy with who they fell in love with, and soon he became the only person you wanted to be with, the love of your life, your only exception, the one who you felt would last… and then it didn’t?

BLOW OFF song of the day: Killing Me Softly With His Song by Roberta Flack


Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
-Roberta Flack, 1973

the risky business of match-making

I'm going to my bestie's wedding this weekend in Malibu and she and her husband met the way most of us wish we met our spouses.  Not through Tinder.  Not in a drunken haze during last call.  And not on Match.com.  They were introduced by a mutual friend.  And not just any mutual friend.  One with serious match-making street cred.  After this weekend, she will be responsible for THREE marriages.  That is seriously hot.  But also-- seriously risky.

Do Men Like Jealousy?

Okay ladies, has this ever happened to you? You've been with a guy and gone into jealous mode and it seemed to kinda turn him on? Here was my recent situation.... this guy I'm seeing and I were going to bed and I realized after a few minutes that he was turned over and on his phone. Now, having dated a ton of assholes, of course I think he's being shady as fuck and he's probably texting some other bitch that she can't come over,because I'm spending the night and he can't get rid of me.

Side Note-- he's actually a really good guy and there's no reason why I should've had these thoughts, but date enough jerks, it just seems like all guys will turn into a douche at some point or another so I thought that point had come last night.

Here's how the dialogue went:

the bachelorette: MEN TELL ALL!

You guys, I'm fighting a nasty cold and have an important meeting in the morning, so I'm going to get through this recap as quickly as possible.  Was it just me or were the most interesting parts of the Men Tell All the moments that had absolutely nothing to do with Blandi?  In fact, the most exciting part of the entire two hours was the Bachelor in Paradise trailer which literally looks more suspenseful and unpredictable than Game of Thrones.  I mean, someone gets ARRESTED on the show.  And one-armed Sarah finally gets to make out!  Anyway: here are the top ten highlights...

why you should send his ex a THANK YOU card

Dudes: you know what the most agonizing part of a break-up is for a woman?  It's not the fear that we'll never meet anyone who loves us again.  It's not the depressing fact that we have to find someone else that we feel comfortable enough with to walk from the bedroom to the bathroom butt-naked.  It's not even the fact that we'll no longer have a plus-one to take to our friend's wedding or to our work holiday parties.  It's that all the effort we put into the relationship was FOR NOTHING.  And that the person who will reap the benefits of all our hard work is your new girlfriend.  That fucking bitch.
