My dears, here's a weekly round-up of Smitten, my Glamour Magazine relationships blog...

This dude left the WORST voicemails ever!!!

Do people ever call you ma'am? ('Cause I'm setting records over here.)

What funny things are you neurotic about?

Do or don't: Guys with long hair.

Feeling stressed or sad? Here's my mom's brilliant advice...

What's your dating status?

When you're on a first date, who pays for dinner?

Our thoughts on Jake as the new Bachelor...

True reader confession: "I never want to have kids. Deal with it."

Are you affectionate? How about your man?

A cute mug.

If you could marry any celebrity, who would you pick?

Three adorable date outfits.

Who do you talk to when you're sad?

Do you fall in love quickly or does it take you a while to warm up?

As always, find much more on Smitten. xoxo

thanks for all the links, as always! I definitely get "maamed" more often than I care to admit. I know I'm not really a "miss" anymore but "maam" really? REALLY?!

Chessa! said...

wowsa! first comment?! That's never happened:)

Melissa Blake said...

I got my first "ma'am" when I was 25, and the funny thing was, the guy didn't look that mucj younger than me!

Great links, as always!

I can now listen/watch streaming audio/video on new laptop. So I clicked on the 'worst voicemails ever' link. OH MY GOD. (I hate using all-caps but I was just yelling there.) I've had some weird calls/msgs in my day but it played on I thought, no, someone is affecting a Jeff Goldblum-with-Canadian-accent, conducting a creepy experiment. Then I was reminded of the (less) creepy voice mails I've received over the years. Holy cow. No wonder I'm presently single. I'm terrified that someone seemingly regular-neurotic is going to Go Dmitri.


Anne said...

OMG! Those voicemails are freaky creepy!!! Dmitri has some psychological issues of his own! Laughed about the neurotic tics! The first three? Mine! Thanks for ringing in the weekend! :)

hair down for me on my big day... however my sister just got married and wore her hair in a high Audrey Hepburn bun and it was so elegant!

Geezees Geezees Custom Canvas Art said...

Those voice mails are pretty creepy!

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

Oh fun! Off to check those all out! My internet access was in and out all week so off to get back on track with my reading!

Those Magic Slippers Will Take You Home said...

love this blog! thanks for the links! i needed the one about the moms advice! :oD Have a great weekend!

Her name was Lola said...

Oh, Jo! I just adore your weekly roundups. Always something to look forward to on a rainy Friday afternoon!

Have a lovely weekend, missy.


Joanna said...

OMG those voicemails are hysterial and incredibly sad and offensive, all at once. I am sending them on to my girlfriends because they're too ridiculous not to share. I actually hear my colleagues snickering as I type this. THANK YOU!!!

P.S. I love your mother's advice. I, too, can take things to heart sometimes and I have such high expectations of people (I'm a Virgo, it's practically ingrained) that I really need to learn to let it go. No one is perfect, including myself!

Tiffany said...

aww this post is so cute :) i love your beenie

mariel4985 said...

Oh man, I heard those voicemails and was afraid he was going to threaten her or something! Creeptastic!

casi said...

oh my gosh! cannot believe the voicemail guy! what a creep!

Anna M said...

That's so funny about neurotic tendencies, because I just posted mine on my blog yesterday.

Love your weekly round-ups!

Shanna Suburbia said...

I love that photo of you, your brother, and your mom! You all look so much alike! All three of you have the same gorgeous smile.

And OMG that voicemail is terrible!!

Lexie said...

because i am from tennessee, i "ma'am" anyone over the age of 25! dont take it personally! it's just ingrained in my vocabulary.

Caroline said...

A) Your mom looks like she could be your sister!

2) Guy pays on first date every time, no matter who asked whom. I have no idea how this would apply to gay and lesbian couples!

Good Girls Studio said...

hahahah the voicemail is too funny! Love your links deary!

I read this blog daily and loooove it. But I am wondering if anyone else has issues clicking over to the Smitten/Glamour site . . . it always takes forever and a day for me.

Re: celebrity marriage -- John Cusack hands down. Cute, quirky, intelligent and reportedly a huge Clash fan. What's not to like?

Grumpy Pants said...

Jake is a horrible choice for the Bachelor! I wanted Reid. Or Kyptin. Ugh. He's just gonna cry all the time because he has hurt their feelings.

Jo - a wise woman once told me that her secret to success is "to never touch the same piece of paper twice." If it's a bill, she pays it. If it's a note, she responds. Etc... So, your tic may be a good one!

Nancy said...

Thanks for the sad/stressed post and your lovely mother's healing advice.
