Although parachute pants are trying to make a comeback, lets all hope they don’t.
Parachute pants, which were originally designed as menswear, were an acceptable article of clothing for a total of four years in the early 1980s. They were usually bright colored and looked great while break dancing or doing the centipede. Unfortunately in today’s world, the centipede is only performed by drunk, distant relatives at awkward family weddings. If you’re lucky, you might see it on Youtube when a drunken frat boy attempts it, and usually fails.

Yes, it’s just about that day. You know, that day full of jack-o-lanterns, haunted houses, trick or treating, and most importantly, costumes- costumes which allow you a chance to change your identity, to play a role, to express yourself. And when it comes to working at a bar on Halloween, one seems to see, shall we say, the more risqué, uninhibited sides of people, most often women, come out through their costumes. Almost making it seem as if entire wardens of slutty nurses, entire armadas of scantily clad pirates (who give an entirely new definition to the word “booty”), entire red light districts of hookers have all decided to take the night off, unite, and go out drinking and man hunting.

How it Makes Me Feel When He Doesn’t Call After Sex
By Dani Katz
It was purely carnal; we used each other’s bodies to get off and then discovered the chemistry wasn’t there, we didn’t fit quite right, or we loathed each other after we came. He didn’t call. Whew. I’m relieved to not have to deal with a messy tangle of unrequited emotions, or the awkward ensuing dialogue. In those instances, the process of unraveling my own self-judgments, reevaluating my aqueous boundaries and reigning in my historically troublesome lust takes precedence, and I’m happy to have the space to deal with them on my own.

Double Dating Dynamics
By Kari DePhillips
You’ve heard or experienced blind date horror stories. You know, the time when you walked into the restaurant and the girl you were meeting had a thicker mustache than you. Or, the time when the new guy you had plans with decided to invite his mother. There was also that other time that you discovered that Devon from the dating website, a charmer from across town, was actually a tranny. Click here to read more…

The Manhattans – Kiss and Say Goodbye
By Kimberly Wharton
So I’m on this online dating site where the only pre-requisite for ‘matching’ is based on whether or not you have a car. This guy popped in, who was somewhat attractive, although it was hard to tell since his only profile picture was blurry. He was an electrical engineer, which I respect, so thought I’d give him my attention. The conversation was a bit jagged, but I do tend to be more attracted to overly smart men with poor people skills, so this was perfect!

Why is a turtleneck one of the worst articles of clothing you could own? Because you literally look like a turtle when you wear one. Whoever decided to add a tube of extra fabric to the neck of a shirt should be exiled from society and sent back into the wilderness of Nebraska or South Dakota, where a turtleneck is an accepted article of clothing for activities such as turkey hunting.
