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…

Group dating, blind-style
If you’ve ever online dated (I have) you know that safety precautions are a must. You know the drill, tell your friends where you’re going, who you’re with, how you found him and his social security number (if you have it, as I bet some of you tech-savvy super sleuths do). But there’s no need to freak out that you might be going out with a future serial killer — or even to feel awkward about meeting the potential meet of your dreams blindly anymore thanks to a new online “social” club called Grouper. Intrigued? Read on… more…

Who would you date?
I know I tend to write a lot of shizzle about The Bachelor without ever having truly watched it, but that’s because I’m truly fascinated by it. 25 men/women vying for the attention of one ‘Bachelor’ or ‘Bachelorette’, who, by the way, is probably making out with at least half of his or her wannabe loves. In the words of the great Peter Griffin (of Family Guy fame), it really grinds my gears when I see any of these clowns pledge eternal love on a TV show…and give those that have ‘made the cut’ a ROSE of all things to advance to the next round. How trite and corny can you get? These people obviously haven’t heard of Dorothy Parker… 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.?

Female MENSA members say they need to act stupid to get a guy. Are they right?
If you haven’t heard of MENSA, you probably don’t belong among its ranks. It is the oldest high IQ society in the world, for those rare people whose intelligence rate among the top 2 percentile. There are 58,000 Americans who factor into this elitist club, 2/3 of which are men. 1, 200 members reside in Western Washington, which is where this story takes place. During one of MENSA’s regular meetings on Mercer Island, two of its highly intelligent female administers spoke about how they have to dumb themselves down to attract a man. WTF?! more…
In honor of the 11th season of Idol, here’s the hot list!
I admit it, I’m a huge dork…and I love all these musical competition shows (minus X Factor, that shit is whack). American Idol‘s top 13 of season 11 were chosen last night, and I couldn’t help but notice that Philip Philips — yes, that really is his name — looked particularly dreamy wearing a green shirt that matched his eyes (kind of like a pre-balding Jude Law in The Talented Mr. Ripley – and don’t even pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about!). Hence, the hot list. Rock on! more…
Where to find love — literally — around the world
You all know that “looking for love in all the right places” is my slogan. So I’m going to be straight up with you and say that — while you’ll literally find love on this list, I can’t actually vouch for the quality of menfolk you’ll meet in each town. This is my bid to make nice after hating on Valentine’s Day all week by creating a comprehensive guide to the cities named in the honor of lurv and romance. Now all I need is endless amounts of cash and way bigger cahones to spend a week searching for my life partner in Romance, Oklahoma. more…

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.

Rehab pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas
Get thee on a plane! If you’re single, here’s where you should go
I hate to break it to you, but the summer is half over (unless you live in Southern California, where it’s summer year-round). If you’re bemoaning the fact that you still have no one to show off your newly toned beach bod to, fret no longer. Travelocity.com and Match.com have banded together to reveal what destinations are the hottest this August. After analyzing where singles seem to be heading to, they’ve ascertained that metropolitan areas seem to be the go-to hot spots. So if you’re feeling lonely, bored or just want some summer lovin’, book your ticket and get ready to spread your wings (I said nothing about your legs – no need to be slutty). Bonne chance! more…

Want a romance as epic as Bella and Edward’s only — you know — real? Read on, Twi-hards!
Love it or hate it, Twilight is a romantic phenomenon (I’d say a romantic’s wet dream but that feels kind of sleazy given that it’s about a teenager’s love affair with a vampire). There’s teenage angst, fangs, blood, broodiness and Robert Pattinson. But did you know that you could actually walk away from the saga with some genuine knowledge? I didn’t. I walked away thinking, ‘God, I’d really want a man like Edward Cullen, but only if he speaks with a British accent’, and ‘Forks, Washington looks depressing’ not ‘Will I one day have vampire babies? How do I get them? I bet they don’t come from storks!’ or ‘Should I date a strong, silent slightly homosexual type like Taylor Lautner or a man who refers to me as a spider monkey like Robert (for the record, the answer to that question is always Rob, spider monkey chatter, glittering skin and all)’. more…
