Watch This! Wednesday is back!!

Man have I been lax with this weekly special recently. Sorry I'm not sorry...not posting means I have some semblance of a that's fun. But alas, I am here today and I'm going to do my damndest to start posting these pretty regularly again. Today's WTW is something that I became slightly obsessed with a few months back when my best friend Stuart told me about it. Some of you may already enjoy this but for those of you who haven't discovered this yet, allow me. Today I give you: Very Mary Kate. Below are a few of my favesies. Enjoy!

Nail on the Head: Ambiguous Dating

We've all been there - we get ourselves into what we think is a "relationship" - hanging out with someone pretty frequently, taking things a little further and then you cross an invisible line and wonder "where is this going?" Time to DTR, right? Of course, you don't want to be the one to do it. And men are kings of ambiguity these days. Well, today I've found an article that can totally help all of us who want to broach this subject with our man but haven't figured out the best way to do it. I present to you: 5 ways to tell if he's really, actually looking for a relationship.

Will the Have-Knots Please Stand Up?

Wedding Season is upon us. It's April, which means the next 6 months will be filled with couples showers, bachelorette parties and of course, the ever-impending nuptuals of some of our best friends. Every twenty-something goes through this, pretty much every year, until they're well into their 30s. And even then, sometimes, they have another sweep of friends who are either "finally getting married" after dating someone for 7 years, or, in the extremely lucky cases, friends who are on their second marriage. (AmIright?) Being 25, I'm right in my prime for the next 6 months to be filled with "wedded bliss" every year for the next 4 years of my life, at least. Now, a girl can dream that her own wedding will fall into this 6 month period at some point, but the truth of the matter is, I don't see that happening any time soon for me. I'll probably be in the 2nd sweep, the 30 something sweep, when everyone is "so over" going to their friends' weddings. But ya know what, you better believe that every single person who's wedding I attend will be getting an invite from me as well. It's only fair, right? I'm shelling out money for your happy day when, let's face it, I'm broke - so it's only fair that those of us who refuse to grow up have to wait 10 years longer for Mr. Right get to be showered with attention and gifts from our far richer friends by the time we actually move from being a "have-knot" to a "have". (I'm only half kidding here - I love my friends and I'm glad that they want to include me in their big day, but until I'm in their shoes, I don't think I'll every truly appreciate all of the festivities as much as they do.)

Now some of you may be wondering "what the hell is a 'have-knot'?" And some of you may be clever enough to figure it out. And some of you may even be familiar with the literary genius that IS Aaron Karo, whom I've referenced before.
