In the recent issue of Elle magazine, our favorite bad girl Rihanna finally sheds some light on her relationship with lover Chris Brown, who infamously assaulted her in 2009. Rihanna has been in the media a lot recently for her "don't give a f*ck attitude." She has uploaded a plethora of photos smoking weed, nude, or with Chris Brown even when we all thought he was still with his now ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.
Rihanna reveals to the mag, “we got a fresh start and I'm thankful for that…And right now that's what we want, a great friendship that's unbreakable. Now that we're adults we can do this right.” She continued on to explain that has her "own reasons, very very private reasons. Very personal. A lot of things. Bottom line is—I know him. I had a lot to think about and I had a lot of time to think about it. I was trying to do this for myself…You don't have that feeling of everlasting love with everybody so when you have it you don't want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he, Chris Brown, is the one I have that kind of relationship with.”
Serena Williams is taking a break from dating. The internet is buzzing with reports that the tennis champ has sworn of dating for the next decade. Williams is notorious for dating hip-hop artists, most famously Common and Drake. She wants to take a break to also focus on herself and her sport but we can not help but feel that avoiding heartbreak is a big reason why she wants to stay out of relationships for now.
Confessing to Celebuzz, “I have given up on dating. It just hasn’t worked out well for me. I’m a really emotional person. I give my all and everything. I do make mistakes — like every human does — but the last relationship just was too much of a heartbreak for me. I just can’t go through that anymore. It was hard.”
We hope you do not give up on love girl, just stay clear of the rappers, maybe that will help!
You work all week, endure endless douchebaggery and idiocy, and restrain your nocturnal vivacity until the calendar reads Friday—only to be rewarded with the vapid, ravenous gauntlet of bar-light romance. These spurious, oft-desperation laden affairs commence and end within the warzone of nightclub communication. This mine-ridden field of conversation suffers from drunken logic, noise pollution, and toxic levels of loneliness—oftentimes resulting in commiserations of half-truths, flattery, and general, coquettish pandering. The subsequent hangover of disappointment, regret, and cavalier nostalgia creates a cycle of despair and frustration that continually leaves the lonesome adventurer jaded.
Between the iPhone and Android there are enough useless apps to keep anyone entertained for days, weeks, maybe years. Throwing one more on the pile is The IceBreak, an app that’s sort of like a Dating Simulator except to use it you’ve already got to be dating someone in real life. It’s a toy for the tech savvy romantics who want a little more than just verbal feedback when it comes to how their relationship is going. Actually, it’s for the couple that would like a variety of solid evidence to let them know how their relationship is going.
There's no way around it; dating in New York City is a freak show. The ratio of women to men is supremely unbalanced, everyone’s schedules are hyper-packed, and the people who live here are generally insane. All of these factors combine to make courtship an obstacle that ranks in difficulty somewhere between running a marathon and enduring a Brazilian wax. Even with help from Okcupid and vodka-sodas, most dates seem to hover around awkward town, and not just because of the nature of the participants, but merely because of a poor choice in location. Dates require more than sexual chemistry. A proper restaurant or bar can really help the overall outcome of a date. When you are first getting to know someone it's important to take the noise level, price, and general atmosphere of your potential date space into account prior to making a reservation or suggestion. Here are a few ideas on the best places for a first, second, and third date in the grand playground of New York City.
Aaaah the wonderful world of dating and being single. It seems no matter what part of the country (or world) men are from, they tend to make the same mistakes when it comes to dating. While I'm sure women do some pretty obnoxious things as well, this piece is for all the guys out there. From a woman's perspective --here's what you're doing wrong. Now is not the time to get offended or defensive, now is the time to listen. I know that may be difficult, but sometimes it's wise to just shut up and take some sound advice. Trust me, it's for your own good. So here are 11 reasons why you never made it to date number two or second base:
What happened to the days when you could just be? Without all the buzzing, notifications and reminders? In the modern world of technology, no one is ever truly unavailable. Gone are the days where you could disappear or blow someone off because you "had no way of getting in contact" with them. Yes, there is officially no excuse anymore. Now that we all have cell phones and literally an app for EVERYTHING, excuses are slim and far-fetched. Especially when it comes to dating.
In addition to the expected social media apps (Facebook, Myspace etc.) all the popular dating sites now have their own apps. Personally, I've never used online dating (not that there's anything wrong with it! I just live in New York City and there's no shortage of men here) but I can only imagine adding dating apps to the mix will make one's love life more complicated. Solely because it's more pressure to always be available! Then again, maybe people enjoy the constant availability. Who knows? So if you're into that sort of thing, here are dating sites that now have apps available. Happy dating!
