“I’m just better at relationships than you are.” These words have spewed out of the mouth of someone very close to me several times over the last few years. They irk the hell out of me (the words, not the person). “What makes you better at relationships?!” is always my oh-so-witty reply, as if I really need someone to point out all of my commitment-phobic issues, yet I leave the door wide open for said person…"Quality over Quantity Makes for Better Relationships"

OK Ladies, what is going on here?! Articles are popping up all over in the place, online and in print on how to get your boyfriend to chase you. In fact, I just searched those exact terms in Google and it resulted in over 11 million results in less than a minute! Seriously ladies?! Since this seems to be something that is on the minds of a lot of females, I decided to do a…"Stop Trying to Get Your Boyfriend to Chase You!"
It’s no surprise that I have a fetish for men in uniform—let me rephrase that—for men in authoritative uniforms; cops, firefighters and especially military. This lust for a sexy man in a crisp uniform began when I was a little girl at my cousin’s wedding. Yes, even at 3 years old, as I paraded my cousins new husband around the room in his Coast Guard dress uniform and introduced him as my husband to all…"To Love and Support While He Serves and Protects"
Those of you who are regular BSG readers know that I am not the mushy, hearts and flowers, let’s talk about us, express my emotions kind of girl. That’s not to say that I’ve never been in love or said the “L” word, because I have; I just don’t drizzle the “L” word on everything! When it comes to relationships and the “L” word, I have a firm philosophical belief: When it comes to expressing to…"In Love, Actions Speak Louder Than Words!"
By now, everyone has at least heard of Patti Stanger and her show Millionaire Matchmaker. For those of you who have been in a coma or lost on a deserted island for years thus rendering you clueless about Patti the Matchmaker, here’s a clip: I must confess that Mr. Sports Fan and I love this show, so much so that we DVR it; it’s a dirty little secret of ours. We love people watching…"Patti’s No Sex Before Monogamy Rule"
Everyone—single, dating, in a relationship or presently married—has had their fair share of shitty relationships. Let’s face it, in the cesspool called ‘dating’, it’s far easier to find a shitty match and end up in relationship hell than it is to put the effort into finding a soul mate. But what happens when things just end, not because they’re bad, but just…because? It’s no secret that I’ve dated a lot! Sure, I’ve had my share…"Not All Relationships End Because They’re Bad"
We all have that one ex that either we can’t let go of or that won’t let go of us. For whatever reason, things just didn’t work out and you parted ways, it happens. I have at least one ex who just can’t seem to let go of something that, I think, we never even had and that someone is Mr. G-spot. He and I “dated” for about 2 months back in the fall of 2011…"The Ex That Can’t Let Go"
A lot of different things have inspired this rant post, but it has to be said. Men and women would be so much happier if they stopped bitching, whining and show boating to their friends about the opposite sex and just grew the fuck up! That’s right, I said it… grow the fuck up! The battle of the sexes is more like a list of shit you should be doing, but aren’t. I read an…"The Battle of the Sexes (A.K.A Shit You Don’t Do But Should)"
Don’t tell me you don’t do it. Of course you do it. We all do it. Everyone watches porn at some point in their lives and if you say you never have then you’re a fucking liar! Some of us (like moi) love it and watch it all the time. It appeals to our voyeuristic side, it’s a dirty little secret that we like watching other people have sex. But can watching porn ruin your…"Does Watching Porn Ruin Your Sex Life?"
