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…

The Spring Fling

As I sat swirling my Green Tea Leaves in the Argo Tea of NYC’s Flatiron, I looked around me at all the awkward couples potentially on their first date. I say it was their first date because of body language…and slightly stalking their conversation. Anyway, as I overlooked the overwhelming number of awkward couples, I…

50 Shades of Grey Area

That damn awkward grey area is THE WORST. You all know what I’m talking about.

I highly suggest friends that you take a minute and do the…

Starting August 12, the Discovery Channel will host it’s 25th year of running a week long television program playlist devoted to sharks. Now on the interactive website,…

The Blame Game and Crazies

After speaking to a close male friend of mine, he repeatedly asked me why he kept having “crazy” ex girlfriends. Girls that would repeatedly talk to him post breakup, or would lose their sanity towards the end. As I started to listen to his ghastly tales of their craziness, I asked him about his own…

Why Women Love Bad Boys

Women love bad boys. You look throughout your growing pains of years and think back to all of your crushes. Was it the football player that didn’t pay you more than 5 seconds of attention except for asking you to pass the ketchup? Or, was it the cliche detention loving emotional “bad boy”, with more…
