The Walk of Shame

If you’re in your twenties and have a heartbeat, the chances are pretty high that you have probably taken the walk of shame. Whether in a relationship, “hanging out” with someone, seeing your “Winter Buddy”, or just having a sleepover with a rando, that brisk walk back to your apartment the next day in yesterday’s…

Snowpocalypse?

As a born New Yorker, when I hear that a snow storm is coming, I think of the essentials I need to purchase: wine and snacks. No, I don’t need a flashlight or three blankets kept in my car. In New York City, everything is around the corner. You can look up any restaurant you…

Peter Pan Syndrome

Whether you’ve dated one or have been accused being one yourself of yourself, our society is filled with boys and girls who have not grown up; which I like to call “Peter Pan Syndrome”. Peter Pan Syndrome occurs when a male or female does not grow emotionally, and although they physically appear older, they are…

A Potty Mouth’s Potty Manners

Alright ladies and gentleman… After a short hiatus from “Advice in the AM” (due to my soul being sucked out by the corporate “man”), I am back and here to stay. Instead of instantly starting with a relationship column about how guys and gals should treat each other, I want to take a minute to…

Quarter Life Crisis: The New Hippie Movement

TMI Facebookers

Alright guys, I am going to go off on a little rant. Not because I am annoyed with someone specifically, but I am hoping that SOMEONE out there will read this who is guilty of what I am about to explain, and that SOMEONE will be forever changed. ….and if not then those who know…

If They Like You….

If they like you, they will find you. The “what IFs” have been my mantra lately and I’m tired of excuses. If they like you, they will call. Excuse: “But what if he’s shy” -Then he will Facebook, tweet, like your instagram posts, etc.  We are in a technology obsessed world that makes it easy…

Bartenders

Most of them are attractive It’s in a bar’s best interest to hire someone attractive, charming, and easy to speak with. A bartender doesn’t just serve you drinks,…

Dating Technology

The Backburner Buddy

We all have one “Backburner Buddy”: Someone who we think of as a friend, or companion, but always got the feeling they might want to be something more. Although we wish it could be different, that we could feel something for that person, we know our platonic pen pals will never be our main burning…

The First Date Kiss

When a friend asked me about the logistics of a second date, all I could say was “just do you”. In our ever changing rules in dating and match making, I couldn’t give them a proper guide book. The reason is, it’s there wasn’t one to hand out in a pamlet. At one point when pure…
