I’m in love
It is a sad fact that, as a three-year-resident of Southern California, I have not yet ventured from Los Angeles down to San Diego. Thank God I was propelled by a mixture of boredom, shame and my typical thirst for adventure yesterday: I’ve now discovered the spot I will one day move/retire. But before I bore you with how much I personally loved the seaside town of Coronado, let me assure you that love is indeed in the air, and that the men (that I encountered, at least) are absolutely, freakishly beautiful. 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…

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…

Hear what Cosmopolitan magazine has to say. If they’re right, my next stop is…right here at home in Los Angeles?
Drum roll, please. This is big news! A new study conducted by the University of Michigan professes to know the best places to meet men in America. I’m a bit skeptical. OK, so the study — which is featured in this month’s issue of Cosmopolitan magazine — simply states where the odds for meeting men are most stacked in our favor. But that doesn’t take into account that these guys could be gay, fugly or completely nuts, right? Still, I’m ever so glad that Salt Lake City is my next lovetrekking destination! more…
