10 Dating Truths You Shouldn't Ignore

One for the ladies, from Cosmo. Do you agree with these? Got any more to add?



By Holly Eagleston

Sure, every guy is different, but when you've gone out with enough of them (and, ahem, we have) you start to see some patterns. Here, Cosmo's incontrovertible dating dictums.

TRUTH #1

You'll regret that "Just wanted to make sure you got my last message" follow-up to an e-mail, text, or voicemail.

TRUTH #2

If you don't feel comfortable having a conversation with a guy about sex — especially condoms — you shouldn't be getting busy with him.

TRUTH #3

If a man breaks up with you out of the blue, the out-of-the-blue part is really only on your end.

TRUTH #4

Just as it's best to wait to drop the L-bomb until your man does, let a guy change his Facebook status to "in a relationship" before you do.

TRUTH #5

No woman in a healthy long-term relationship has ever said, "Gee, I really wish I'd slept with my man sooner."


TRUTH #6

Keeping a change of clothes at work in case of an emergency walk of shame isn't optimistic behavior...it's career-savvy.

TRUTH #7

When a guy repeatedly refers to his exes as "crazy," "psycho," or "sluts," he will use those same words against you one day.

TRUTH #8

If a relationship feels like too much work after the first month, it'll be 10 times harder a year from now.

TRUTH #9

A guy who rates you or other girls as a number from 1 to 10 is a loser, even if he gives you a 10. You're a woman, not county fair livestock.

TRUTH #10

A guy who talks about how skilled he is in the sack is like a man who brags about his money. Either way, he ain't got it. The kind of man you want to be with knows that actions speak louder than words.

Terrible Hangover Cures Of The Day

I've been hungover. I've never been this hungover. From Fork Party.

JACKRABBIT TEA


If your hangover is so bad rabbit shit tea looks good, we suggest you stop drinking so damn much. This one comes from the Wild West, where hard-drinking cowboys crawled out of their bedrolls and downed a hellacious brew of hot water and jack rabbit dung. Given that medicine at this time included such cures as bloodletting and cauterizing wounds with red hot bits of metal, we’re not going to recommend this one.

PICKLED SHEEP EYES

Are ewe kidding me? Outer Mongolians swear by this simple combination of tomato juice and pickled sheep eyes. How does it work? Anyone who gets a look at this experiences an immediate recovery.

UMEBOSHI

The Japanese swear by umeboshi, which are bite-sized, green picked plums pickled in salt. Wrinkled, wizened and looking disturbingly familiar, these fruity pickle bombs will clear your sinuses and improve your digestion. They’re also touted as a great energy booster and pick me up, though we suspect that has more to do with you picking yourself up to run to the bathroom when this highly acidic snack hits your already queasy stomach.

HAEJANGGUK

If you draw the line at eating another animal’s digestive organs, then skip Haejangguk, which is stuffed full of all sorts of tasty treats like pig spines, coagulated ox blood and dried cabbage. Why it works is anyone's guess, but ancient records indicate it was the very first delivery food sent to cure a hangover. (The name comes from the sound you make when puking your guts out. -C)
