Sad, Sad iPhone chat (LINK)

Please don’t be this girl! 

smartgirlfriend:

I so hope that this is fictional because it’s a bit outrageous, but I have seen something similar happen before. A girl got into a fight and resolved it via text without my guy friend ever responding. (Crazytown, USA). This is yet another example of how technology fools us into thinking we’re closer to someone than we are. Try not to put too much stock in those late night Facebook chats and texts. Also remember. “We’re having a party” doesn’t always mean “Hey! we’re having a party and I’d LOVE it if you came! Hope to see you later ;)” Food for thought.

I am a firm believer that like the great and powerful Oz, some things in relationships and dating should stay behind the curtain to make them magical. Those things include: personal grooming, bathroom habits, and a detailed outline of your thought process like this one. Please, please please don’t be that girl. Also, don’t be the asshole guy that posts it on the internet. I’M COMING FOR YOU, JJ. 

Stay smart.

Anonymous said: I recently met a man on the internet and we have been chatting for about 2 months. He lives several hours away from me but he has come to visit me twice (stayed in a hotel both times). At our last meeting he asked me if I would like to take the train to visit him and stay at his country house for the weekend. I would like to see him but I do not feel comfortable after only two dates and have decided not to go yet. How do I go about telling him this?

If your instinct is to not visit him just yet I would go with that feeling (instincts rarely steer you wrong). Say something like: “Thank you so much for the invitation and it sounds lovely but I just can’t get away this weekend.” Having said that, if he is crazy about you he will suggest coming to visit you again and you can keep dating at a rate that you are comfortable with! Hope all goes well!

Salma Hayek is my pick for Best Dressed on the Golden Globes red carpet! 
Salma Hayek has an incredible body, but her body type is not an easy one to dress! She is very petite and very curvy with a short waist and large chest. While she is breaking several rules on dressing that particular body type (dress cut at the waist, and embellishment on the chest) she manages to pull it off beautifully. Why? Because the long pleated column skirt elongates her body making her appear taller, the waist band accentuates her tiny waist, and while the embellished bust draws even more attention to an already hard to miss area she displays a comfortable amount of cleavage and the strapless silhouette fits her perfectly and looks beautiful.
She also wears her long wavy hair as an accessory covering up some of the bare skin around her bust line. The gold and black art deco style Gucci gown is classic and modern all at once. She looks STUNNING and despite being so petite, wears the floor length gown without the gown wearing her.  
I love her matching bag and earrings as well. This is one of my favorite red carpet looks in a long time!

Anonymous said: Can I be friends with an ex?

It’s not the best idea, at least not immediately. One or both of you will surely still have feelings for the other and that WILL get complicated. Also, if he broke up with you he shouldn’t get to be your friend afterward as a consolation prize. 

I do understand that people in a relationship will have common interests and a friendship element that is kind of sad to just throw away forever, but in effort to not complicate the friendship or lead each other on it only makes sense if you:

  1. are both in new relationships AND 
  2. twice the length of time that you were together has since passed. For instance, if you dated for 1 year, two years should pass first. AND
  3. your current significant other doesn’t have a problem with you being friends with your ex (and yes you should let them know).
If these three criteria are met, I say go for it!
