I’m 54 & Single & This Year I Finally Embraced Solo Travel

For the past four and a half years, I’ve been single. Most of the time it has been just fine, as I have more than enough to keep myself busy. Between running a consulting firm, sitting on three nonprofit boards, writing a book, finding time to exercise, visiting with friends, and entertaining my three-year-old rescue pup, Phoebe, I find the feeling of loneliness is kept at bay.However, every year around late October or early November, as Christmas decorations begin appearing in store windows an...

The Steep Financial & Emotional Toll Of Breaking-Up With Your Live-In Partner

Lina*, 34, used to live in the same New York City neighborhood as her boyfriend — let’s call him Tom. After dating him for about a year, Lina found she was spending more time at Tom’s apartment than her own (“It was nicer,” she notes). When the time came for Lina to renew her lease on the two-bedroom apartment she shared with a roommate, the couple decided it made more sense for her to just move into Tom’s place.“We never discussed what would happen if we broke up,” Lina says. “You know, you do...

11 Women Who Hate To Cook Share Their Go-To Weeknight Meals

There are two types of people in this world: those for whom cooking is therapeutic, a creative outlet, and a way to show love, and those who simply despise the act. For people in the latter camp, it's anxiety-producing, takes too much planning, and just isn't fun. But as shocking as it may sound to die-hard foodies, people that fall into this group often come up with the best recipes. They know they gotta eat, so they create crafty ways to throw together delicious meals without too much prep, p...

I Make $90,000 A Year, & My Dates Won't Let Me Pay The Check

Talking about money can be awkward, but few things seem to be as loaded as bringing it up on a first date — beginning with the question of who's picking up the check. In heterosexual relationships, should the guy always pay? And if he does, do you owe him another date — or something else? What happens if you offer to split the bill? Does that mean the relationship is heading for the dreaded friend zone?On our first full episode of Money Diaries: The Podcast, my co-host, Paco DeLeon, and I tackl...

The Worst Rom-Coms Of All Time

This is what love is supposed to be.Then there are those other rom-coms. Their grasp on reality is tenuous. The...

We Scoured Instagram & Found 10 Of 2019's Buzziest New Jewelry Brands

Nowadays, the rule of thumb for jewelry is pretty clear: the more the merrier. We layer so many necklaces on top of each other that waking up without a tangled mess around our necks is impossible, our hands are stacked with a ring (if not multiple) on every finger and we're on a first-name basis with the local piercing dude. Needless to say, the days of taking a minimalist stance in this department are officially a thing of the past. So naturally, we're always on the hunt for new brands to add ...

Need To De-Stress? Floating In Salt Water Might Be The Solution

Imagine floating in outer space. It’s pitch-dark and you’re naked. Three-quarters of your body is submerged in skin-temperature salt water that makes it difficult to tell where your body stops and the water begins. It’s so dark, there’s no perceptible difference between closing your eyes or leaving them open, aside from the slight sting of salt air. For some people, this sense of total blankness is rejuvenating . Others opt to press a button to turn the lights on. This is what floating in a s...
