Just in time for Valentine’s Day…so funny, so sad and so true! xx
Wow. Pete Doherty, singer, infamous Kate Moss ex and drug addict, is the toast of Paris. He has all the ingredients of a French hipster: He hangs out with new BFF Carla Bruni, starts his days on the movie set with shots of heroin and wears a tiny hat. In France being a drug addict and reading Balzac = ’emotional depth’. He lives with two women in their 20s, so I think Pete should ditch the poetry and explore reality TV opportunities if he wants to stop dodging those creditors. I’m thinking Three’s Company With Crack?
Convicted murderer Joran van der Sloot may or may not be a father soon but he does have a girlfriend. And he gets conjugal visits.
So what they hell is she thinking? I have a few theories, but none of them make dating a prisoner any less insane.
1. Prisoners are the ultimate ‘safe’ bad boys. Women who need to feel needed believe that they can ‘tame’ them and see their softer side. At least, as long as there is a guard with bear mace within spitting distance.
2. They believe that a guy in a cage is better than no guy at all. These women are passive commitment-phobes who don’t want a ‘real’ relationship. Maybe they have been burned in the past, cheated on, or abused. It’s like looking at the lion in the zoo–a safe way to experience intensity.
3. They don’t want to wait by the phone. Men in prison tend to write long love letters and call when they say they will. Because they want to make sure those checks keep coming!
4. They believe the men don’t/can’t cheat. I’ve actually spoken to someone who tells me that she prefers dating men behind bars because they ‘can’t look at other women or hook up’. At least, until he drops the soap…
5. They want to land a hotter model than they could on the ‘outside’. Prison yards are a great workout! Maybe they can’t date Brad Pitt, so they figure that Scott Peterson or Erik Menendez are worth a shot.
The scariest part? I have so many amazing, well-educated, kind male friends who can’t get a date while women fight over felons.
A new study says that we’re risking psychological damage if we Facebook stalk our exes. I admit; I’m a former Facebook stalker. After several bad breakups, I’ve learned to hit the ‘unfriend’ button immediately and get over things the far more emotionally healthy way: By pretending that my ex is dead for a minimum of six months.
When I’ve broken this rule in the past, the results have never been good. Many of my friends have the same issue: We KNOW logically that we should cut off all contact, so why is the urge to stalk so strong?
Since Amazon picked Sleeping Around for their Big Deal and I got such a great response, we have extended the low price: For a limited time, you can grab a copy for only $.99! Seriously: Love, sex, and erotica with a sense of humor all for less than a bottle of water at Starbucks? Come on: You can’t beat that with a stick.
Want to avoid the ‘Am I going to be the father of a baby, or a burrito?’ conversation through lawyers? Don’t automatically believe anyone who claims to be on the Pill, have had a vasectomy, be infertile, or otherwise magically unable to conceive. Protect yourself until you are ready for parenthood!
