An Extra Belly Button!
By Sarita | 03/12/2009 - 13:25

I remember hearing that ridiculous song by Gillette "Don’t Want No Short Short Man" back in grade school. At the ripe age of 12, my friends and I giggled whenever we heard the song but had no real clue what it was about. Nevertheless, my favorite line was "Isn’t that cute? An extra belly button!"

Fast forward a bit, and as adult women I think it’s safe to say we've all seen a penis or two in our lifetimes.

First Date Dos and Don'ts
By Sarita | 03/10/2009 - 14:30

I would consider myself to be a successful first dater, because I have almost always been asked out on a second. Aside from my good looks and charm (wink, wink) I’ve learned over time how certain behaviors can make or break a first encounter.

Here's my list of first date dos and don'ts:

Do look hot. Wear something that makes you feel great. Re-touch your makeup; throw on a pair of heels and go!

Don't be late! At least not more than 10-15 minutes. And if you are, you better have a damn good excuse.

Dear "The Bachelor", You Suck!
By Sarita | 03/05/2009 - 14:00

I hate reality TV. But on Monday night I had no choice but to watch The Bachelor finale for no other reason than to see for myself what the hype was all about.

As the episode played through I rolled my eyes and laughed aloud—personally, I feel like the show is completely staged!

The Great Wait Debate
By Sarita | 03/03/2009 - 12:45

There have always been differing opinions among my group of friends about how long someone should wait before sleeping with a guy.

Some girls think that even if it's just the first date, you should go for it if it feels right. Why not? You only live once!

Others think you should wait until you've been on at least 3 dates, just to be sure…

And some of us feel that waiting until you both really know one another and feel comfortable is the best idea, whether that takes 3 dates or 30.

Recession Romance
By Sarita | 02/26/2009 - 15:00

I love going out and hitting the scene, but with the recession in full effect I’ve been getting creative with ways to save cash while dating.

I've managed to think up some pretty good ideas for cheap or free dates. Check them out below!

1. Wine and dine indoors. Grab some wine, groceries and get cooking! It actually beats waiting to be seated, the noisy crowd and the hefty bill that lands on your table at the end of the night.

Love Shouldn't Hurt
By Sarita | 02/24/2009 - 12:30

As human beings we hurt one another all the time, intentionally or not. Throughout our adult lives and in our romantic relationships, we all get our hearts broken eventually.

There is no denying that love can hurt—but that pain should never, ever be physical. As news reports broke recently about the domestic violence between pop sensation Rihanna and her boyfriend, R&B singer Chris Brown, it made me think about just how many women out there in the world are suffering the same fate.

Excuse Me Miss
By Sarita | 02/19/2009 - 12:00

When you’re out with the girls, do the guys approach you? I’m no expert, but after years of singledom and observation, I’ve come to the conclusion that guys talk to the girls that seem approachable.

You should always be true to who you are, but below is some insight from yours truly that just might help you meet the man of your dreams:

No Ordinary Love
By Sarita | 02/17/2009 - 14:15

When my friend Celine spent a semester abroad in college, she came back with amazing tales from Europe filled with friendship and adventure.

A lot of those stories involved Jacob, a fellow American abroad who she immediately hit it off with. They spent sweet nights in Paris together—sightseeing and hitting the clubs—and even traveled to neighboring countries. He was handsome, brilliant and charming and she had the biggest crush on him.

Thing is, Jacob’s gay.

Sexy Little Things
By Sarita | 02/12/2009 - 13:00

When my friend Elizabeth is feeling sexy and ready for some action, she has her fiancé go into her underwear drawer and pick out whatever he wants to see her in. She has different lingerie sets and has fun playing dress-up in them for the man she loves.

It inspired me to get some sexy little things of my own to help make my Valentine’s Day celebration extra special.

10 Things I Hate About You
By Sarita | 02/10/2009 - 17:00

The other day Jack asked me if there was anything he did that annoyed me. Aside from a few pesky habits of his, like leaving the toilet seat up and inhaling his food, I couldn’t think of anything that bothered me all that much.

But it did get me thinking about my past flings and relationships and the habits that generally bother me about men. So here is my personal Top 10 list of gross, stupid and just plain wrong things that some guys do:
