Love  &  Sex

    Weddings are an incredibly exciting time. But, as some former brides-to-be can tell you, they can also make for a pretty stressful time too. There's so much to do in order to get ready for the big day! How anyone manages to keep their cool is beyond me. Even the most well-mannered bride can bend under the pressure. While she might be masterful enough when it comes to her emotions not to outright scream, she isn't above a little bit of passive aggression.

    You kind of can't blame her! With so many people coming to her with so many different questions, problems, and concerns, it's only naturally that all her grinning-and-bearing-it will eventually start to show. Sadly for her, most stressed out brides aren't exactly great actresses.

    Finally picked a date for your wedding? You could send out a save-the-date email to all your friends and family ... if you're a boring, normal person, that is. Or, you could create the most epic wedding save-the-date video ever known to Bridekind. Witness Bambo Obaro and Janice Jentz's "Boss Wedding" save-the-date video. Basically they produced the trailer to their own wedding. And yes, those are their real names. Bambo and Janice are lawyers, which in no way explains the mad artistry you're about to watch.

    I haven't always been a huge fan of long road trips. To be honest, it was just an incredibly intimidating thought. I couldn't imagine spending endless hours in a car with anyone as an adult. Perhaps it was all those family car trips in the '70s that left me a bit traumatized. My mother had this insane fear of rest stops so we traveled with a bucket. Yes, a bucket.

    So when my boyfriend and I decided to take a road trip to Miami, Florida (from Washington, DC), there was a mix of excitement and panic. I LOVED the idea of going on vacation with him. I loathed the thought of getting there. This would really be a test of our relationship. If all didn't go well, I might come back a single, albeit sun-kissed, woman.

    Despite those fears, we planned our 20-hour trek. I didn't know it at the time, but that trip essentially sealed the deal on our romance. Here's how.

    Want to know how you can have mind-blowing sex? Well, for a lot of us the key is to shut off the monkey chatter in our heads. We're so critical of ourselves, our bodies especially. And it doesn't always stop when we're in the middle of doing the do. But while the wheels of worry are spinning around in our heads, guess what's going on in men's heads during sex? Kind of nothing -- and kind of everything.

    When you get naked with a guy they're not thinking anything except how glad they are to be invited to the party. The rest is all ... well, let me just show you in pictures.

    Your wedding day. It's supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life. You've met the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. Most likely, you've been planning for a year or more. You have a perfect vision of how the whole thing will go down. But there's one problem, one hitch in the grand affair that could ruin everything: You have to fire one of your bridesmaids.

    Yeah. It's awkward. And you can't exactly hand her a pink slip and go about your business. I mean, you could. If you were a monster. But we're going to assume that you aren't. So how did this even happen, where did it all go so wrong?

    When you started planning your wedding, you couldn't imagine doing it without her. She's that friend you've known forever, and while you haven't always seen eye to eye and have gone stretches of time without speaking to each other, you're blissed out on love and you want her to be part of that. Until the actual planning gets under way, that is.

    Ladies, tell your man to get that cellphone out of his pocket! Scientists may have discovered a link between cellphone usage and erectile dysfunction. Preliminary results published in the Central European Journal of Urology seem to indicate that men suffering from chronic ED spend a lot more time in contact with their switched-on mobile devices than those that don't have issues in that department.

    And here you thought it was just too much Candy Crush killing the mood.

    First dates can be very tricky. On the one hand, you want to find out enough about the other person to decide whether or not a second date is warranted. However, since it's your first time meeting a total stranger, you don't want to overwhelm that person with heavy questions that suck all of the fun and breeziness out of the encounter. I'm a fan of asking one or two pointed questions that are very important to you, such as, "Do you want children?" "Do you want to be married?" etc., so you don't even start with someone who is on a whole other relationship planet than you. There are, however, are nine questions that should NEVER be asked on a first date.

    Finding out that your spouse has cheated on you has to be one of the most devastating gut punches a person can experience. It doesn't matter if things were rocky already, or if the unsuspecting party had no clue there was trouble in paradise -- it's a betrayal in its most intimate form.

    So you got emotionally knocked flat on your back by a confession wrought after you uncovered some suspicious texts or receipts, or maybe even a sheepish unsolicited absolution of guilt. Well now what? What is the right thing to do when infidelity enters a marriage? Will you be a shmuck if you stay? Are you throwing the baby out with the bathwater if you go?

    There are some classic mistakes that women make with men. So classic that I honestly wish a book was made of them -- a rule book -- and women had to read it in high school. And then take a test on it. Like 50 tests. And they had to memorize every single word.

    But there is no Relationship 101 unless you count the ones in the School of Hard Knocks. You have to live it or have your friends live it -- sometimes multiple times -- for the lessons to kick in. And sometimes then they don't even stick. But, boy, if every woman knew these classic mistakes, and to avoid them, before plunging into the dating world in their early 20s, what a different experience love could be for those ladies. Here are 6 classic mistakes women make with men.
