Don’t miss out on love…
Obviously, I’m a big believer that love can happen anywhere, at any time. That’s why I want you to imagine the following scenario. Pretend for a second that you’re a New Yorker waiting for the 6 train and you happen to lock eyes with a handsome stranger across the crowded platform. You feel a jolt down to your pinky toe (and maybe elsewhere too). But then the moment passes. He gets on the train and you’re still stuck waiting with a sinking feeling in your stomach, wondering what might have been. more…

Also get informed about the cities that value sex the least — so you can avoid them!
I am a very, very lucky girl. I was pleased and surprised to find that my hometown of Santa Monica, California, was ranked second among the top ten places in America where sex is valued the most. I mean, I would be more excited if, say, love was valued above all else, but this I can live with. Believe it or not, eight of the top ten cities on Chemistry.com‘s sex list — in a survey of 10 million people — are in the Golden State. Peace, love and surfers galore! Why doesn’t everyone just move to good, old C.A.?

The story of a woman who lost her memory — and almost lost the love of her life
It’s hard enough finding true love even once in a lifetime, don’t you agree? Though we all play games and jump through hoops to make our relationships work, in the right kind of relationship, everything just works out organically. There’s no confusion or doubt, you don’t have to spend endless hours constructing sassy, pithy text messages and you certainly won’t be agonizing over why he hasn’t called. Krickitt Carpenter had the kind of enviable picture-perfect relationship — but when she lost her memory during a nearly fatal car accident, she also lost all feelings for her husband, Kim. But can two true soulmates ever really be torn apart?
Are you getting lucky this new year? Depends on where you live!
If you rang in the new year depressed and alone, ashing a limp cigarette into your party hat and moaning about the fact that you didn’t have anyone to kiss under the wilting (but still hopeful) mistletoe at midnight, chin up — it’s a new year! Although I hope your resolution isn’t to find a boyfriend (obviously, you want Mr. Right, not Mr. Right for Right Now), I can’t control what you do, where you go, or where you might move in the name of love (I moved to London for love in my infancy at the tender age of 23, so I can hardly talk). The Daily Beast has quite thoughtfully put together a hit list for 2012 of the best American cities to find a romantic partner in crime in the new year. They’ve factored in the number of singles per area using Census data from 2008-2010, ratio of women to men, cost of living data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the mental and emotional health of the respective cities residents from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. So in case you were wondering, “Well, who died and made those Beasts king of all romantic knowledge?” well, I’d say they’ve made a pretty strong case for their results. So get on with your bad selves this year and prepare to do some traveling…especially to Nebraska. Weird, I know, but trust me…those boys are smokin’ hot. On that happy note, I wish you loads of luck. I also wish you’d remove yourself from your sad slump and pop open a bottle of champagne STAT. Getting depressed over stupid boys — or even a lack of one — is so 2011.

Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger offers her professional opinion
She knows millionaires, but does she know anything about travel? Well, yes, actually, I do believe that Patti Stanger does know what she’s talking about when she revealed her picks for the top three cities in which to meet rich, hot and single men. While I personally don’t care about a man’s wealth (yes, I do prefer hand-picked daisies over expensive roses, thank you very much) the Millionaire Matchmaker is actually dead-on accurate with at least two of her picks. The third doesn’t rank on my list of places to see before I die, though perhaps some Scottsdale, Arizona residents can convince me otherwise that their city rocks. I’m open, as always. more…

So you’re a girl who likes money? Well, here’s where to find a guy who has the green if that’s your favorite color
For the record, this is not a post I would ever personally write. I know nothing about where to find monied men. In fact, I tend to date photographers, gym trainers or struggling musicians. But I know there are women out there — especially in LA — that do care about a guy’s net worth. So for all you ladies, I’m reposting this article from SugarSugar.com, a site that caters specifically to gals who want to be some guy’s sugar baby. I’ll pass, thanks, but you may benefit from discovering the ten hottest spots around the US to meet guys rolling in the green. Go forth and conquer with your best assets – ahem - forward. more…

Where in America can you get it on in public — and where is it an absolute no-no to show affection?
I don’t know about you, but I’m the first person to cringe when I see a couple in the midst of a hot-and-heavy PDA session (that’s public display of affection for you plebes) and the first person to be all about indulging in one (with a boyfriend, of course). It’s a good thing then that my latter self lives in California, a state which happens to be A-OK with PDA, according to a survey by Chemistry.com. But where else can you smooch your other half out in the open, and where should you avoid getting handsy with your man? more…

Where do you go to get your tequila on come the 5th of May?
Raise your hand if you’re a big fan of Cinco de Mayo but don’t know exactly what it is. I’ll join you. The extent of my de Mayo knowledge is that it’s a really good day to stay off the road because of drunk drivers, a lot of tequila is consumed and very little sense is made. So what are we celebrating, and where should we celebrate? more…
