Get ready to weep. This 96-year-old man wrote a song for his wife of 75 years.
Damn onion ninjas.
I should know, I was on it. Buh duh bump! Annnnnd I met my boyfriend through it. Cha cha ching!
But, in all seriousness, online dating be crayyy-zay.
No one knows this better than my friend, who shall remain nameless—per her request. Yet, for my own amusement, has been sending me updates as she navigates the world of Internet weirdos.
These are some of those weirdos.
1. Man whose photos suggest he might be Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs
2. Guy who wants to sound pretentious and smart
- This is a direct quote: “Most private thing willing to admit: Every time I fly, I stare out the window and look at what we have created and accomplished”
3. Gentleman who needs to be schooled on hair maintenance
4. Dude who actually said this: “First thing people notice about me: My presence” and then used the below photo. He’s not wrong.
5. Freaky fetish guy having a moment on a trunk
- “Most private thing I’m willing to admit: I dream of dating a woman with a wild or androgynous haircut. The rude girl haircut, dreadlocks, a single side buzzed while the top and opposite side are long and sleek. Homer is to donuts as I am to freaky hair!”
6. The Zombie who loves JESUS
- His message to my friend: “I’d like to talk to you about Jesus. I don’t really want to talk to you about Jesus. I just imagine pretty girls like you who get swamped with messages need a good opening line to get your attention. You’ve read this far. Might as well read my profile and see how much we have in common.”
Happy dating, folks!
There was a boy, a very strange enchanted boy
They say he’d wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea.
A little shy, and sad of eye; but very wise was he.
And then one day…one magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings
This he said to me
The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return.

Been in a very romantic mood lately.
Christian (Ewan McGregor) is one of my favorite characters from a romantic film. He’s willing to do anything for love.
In the third installment of our podcast, Erin and Marcos explore what it means to be romantic in 2012. They’ll chat about favorite romantic comedy moments, a live mariachi band, and Julia Roberts whoring it up in Pretty Woman. Plus, they’ve got a real life couple in special guests Jessie Rosen, of 20-Nothings, and her beau, Rob Luchow.
Rob and Jessie are a real life romantic comedy and it is adorable!!! Loved chatting with them, and you are going to LOL when you have a listen!
Flavorwire put together this cut off all the top TV love moments they could think of and it turned out pretty great.
My favorite? Pride And Prejudicewith Colin Firth. Enjoy!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I’m sure most of you are well into the stages of pre/mid/post coitus, lubricating your lovers with copious amounts of champagne and chocolate covered somethings, but for those of you who aren’t…
I’ve done some truly diligent research. Whether you need a moment to weep over the fact that you’re alone, or Whitney Houston’s death is finally hitting you… There are a number of invaluable spots to have a good cry.
Here are my top 5 faves (in no particular order):
1.Bed Bath & Beyond
I’d recommend securing a spot in the “Bath” section of Bed Bath & Beyond. That way, when you start to dry heave tears, there will be towels at your disposal to mop off your face. I found that in the middle of the week, around 10:30 a.m. it’s particularly quiet (aka perfect for having an undisturbed nervous breakdown).
2. The Restroom in K-Mart
Aside from the fact that no one shops at KMart, if you do visit one of their stores you’ll notice that because of all the neon SALE signs, your sad face will go blissfully unnoticed. Retire to the restroom in the back of the store and not only will you have the place all to yourself, but you’ll also get to stare into the cracked bathroom mirror and watch the tears roll down your face (something I like to do mid cry to remind myself that THIS IS HAPPENING).
3. Lobby of a Funeral Home
The reason why this is ideal is fairly obvious- you’ll be in good company. Well, not like THAT, but you no what I mean, right? …Right?
Not only is it expected that you’ll cry at a funeral home, but no one will shoot you one of those, “Have some dignity and pull yourself the fuck together” looks. Fall onto one of the plush sofas, hysterically weep openly, and chances are you’ll be handed a box of Kleenex, patted on the back, and encouraged to let it all out.
4. A Strip Club
Plenty of people will be in da club: Unsightly older gentlemen, security guards, hookers with hearts of gold, and YOU.
The reason this is a viable option is that if you go to a strip joint in the middle of the day, sit down at a table, order a scotch, and start to sob, chances are the stripper will cry right back. Because, really, she’s a stripper working the off hours and she’s stuck with you for a sad sack of a customer. You can cry into each others arms!
5. A Romantic French Restaurant
While it may seem counter productive to go to a romantic restaurant on Valentine’s Day, where all of the other patrons will be revving up to head home and, well, get it on, this is actually not the worst idea. The thing is, the lighting will be low so your leaky eyes will be obscured. There will likely be live music or, at the very least, a Sade CD playing, and that will muffle out the sound of you blowing your nose. Plus, if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to stress eat. Since it’s a holiday, you might as well treat yourself to some escargot, am I right?!?
Happy Valentine’s Day, from me to you. xoxo
