    When it comes to love, men and women often have very different ideas about it. For instance, what is the worst thing men can think of happening to them on a date? According to a survey, the thing men fear most in the world on a date (obviously a first date, in this case) isn't getting stuck with an enormous restaurant bill -- but a fat woman showing up. Women, on the other hand, fear a serial killer smiling at her over a glass of wine. So, yeah, kinda different.

    A couple of pranksters decided to film what it would be like if men and women who had met on the dating app Tinder came face to face for the first time with the hottie they were expecting, only to find a very LARGE hottie instead. A man and a woman dressed up in fat suits and showed up on first dates, and the reactions of the men vs. the women couldn't be more polar opposite -- and telling.

    Ladies, it's the first day of autumn; Do you know where your fall boyfriend is?

    Yes, it's the most important accessory a woman can have this season: A boyfriend you acquire in the fall. Just last week two women actually posted a Craigslist ad for that very purpose: "Needed: 2 Males interested in something steady/serious-ish as the weather fades from hot, humid, and carefree to crisp, Patagonia vest season." They later said they were joking, but I think they were serious. Why? Because locking down that fall boyfriend is super important, that's why!

    It's not merely so you'll be ready for holiday parties and that New Year's Eve kiss. Just look at all the romantic activities you could be enjoying if you only had a fall boyfriend. Now get on it, girl!

    Falling in love means losing ALL sense of logic. No, really. MRI scans have shown that a region of the brain essential to judgment, the brain's frontal cortex, shuts down when people fall in love, according to a study at University College London. Perhaps that's the excuse for these two crazy kids whose dangerous make-out session at a Louisiana State University football game has gone viral.

    Two unidentified, crazy-in-love birds (potentially under the influence of alcohol) got a bit carried away while kissing at a recent football game ... And ended up falling into the crowd. You just have to see it ...

    We don't always have a clear idea of what kind of husband or father a guy is going to make when we first start dating. We have to discover that over time, little by little. But one woman is leaving nothing to her potential suitors' imagination. Check out this gal's insane list of demands on OKCupid.

    And then imagine what kind of wife and mother this woman is going to be.

    That is, if she succeeds in going on a date with anyone ever. With a list like this, I'd be surprised if she attracts anyone at all.

    Silly question, but have you been on a bad date? Anyone who has ever been single (read: everyone) has at least one dating horror story for the books.

    But after one of those REALLY terrible ones, didn't it always help to know you weren't alone? And after you've coupled up, unconsciously or not, isn't it fun to look back on all the madness and laugh?

    I once ended up on a date where the guy demanded that I kiss him. After all, he reasoned, "I paid for dinner. You owe me." Sure, dude. I couldn't catch the subway fast enough after that one.

    Everyone's got a doozy.

    From the guys who refused to pay (and walked their dates to the ATM and even gave them CHANGE) to the men who picked food from our teeth and ate it (RETCH), we gathered the 7 worst dating tales in order to share the love!

    Technology has, in many ways, improved our love lives beyond our wildest imaginings. There are vibrators that plug into USB ports that memorize sequences and the way you like it. There is vibrating underwear that your lover can manipulate from afar. Of course, that's not all. 

    Internet dating is now so mainstream that what was once stigmatized as being for losers who couldn't find love without help is now pretty normal. And yet even with all these improvements to our love lives and prospects, the truth is not everyone is handling technology in the right way when it comes to love.

    Hey Baby, what’s your number?

    No, not phone digits or notches on his bedpost. We’re talking numerology -- the study of the symbolism of numbers -- and you’d be surprised what you can learn about the guy you’re dating or married to with a little simple math!

    "Numerology is a cut-to-the-chase tool that reveals your partner’s personality traits with unyielding accuracy,” says Felicia Bender, PhD, author of Redesign Your Life: Using Numerology to Create the Wildly Optimal You. "It’s an amazing way to gauge compatibility.”  

    To find out your man’s Life Path number (which is similar to knowing his astrological sun sign), simply add all the digits of his birthdate until you get a single-digit number. So for example, if he was born on 11/19/1985, 1+1+1+9+1+9+8+5 = 35, and 3+5 = 8. He’s an 8!

    Smile a lot. Touch his arm. Compliment him. Mirror his physical movements. Twirl your hair. We've all heard these flirting tips before, and they're all actually pretty effective (yeah, even that dumb hair-twirling trick). But what if you hate flirting -- that way? What if you think it's intimidating, or just "not you," but you still want to attract that cute guy?

    Do it anyway -- but your way. At its essence, it's just about connecting to someone you're attracted to in a way that shows them you're really, really interested. And what's wrong with that? Here's a few ways to flirt that won't make you feel like a faker.

    Before this week, the song "Rude" by Canadian band Magic was just a catchy tune playing on the radio in my car as I shuffled my daughter from one summer vacation moment to the next. Then a father named Benji Cowart decided to respond to "Rude" with his own version in a viral video being hailed as a "perfect" response to the song about a young man asking for a girl's hand in marriage only to be turned down by her dad. The father of one 11-year-old girl has had everyone from morning TV hosts to Internet writers fawning over him for his "adorable parody."

    To everyone who has "liked" and "shared" Cowart's video, I have one question: are we listening to the same song?
