In Case You Still Need a 2012 Calendar
What’s better than a monthly photo of an adorable puppy or a scenic view? A shirtless, ripped and sexy man holding that puppy in front of a sunset, of course. Whether you’re into older dudes or guys with facial (or chest!) hair, Jezebel’s list has the best mouth-watering-stud-muffin calendars of 2012.

S*** Single Ladies Say
We’ve all been single and we’ve all said ridiculous things when we’re just a little burnt out on dating. A hilarious new video (see below!) highlights the language of single ladies like “I’m just picky,” “Will there be hot guys there?” “My horoscope said I’d find love this month!” and other so-true-it’s-scary phrases. The Frisky reports.

Why You Should Cry in Front of Your Boyfriend
We all know that guys dig girls who aren’t emotional train wrecks. And while we don’t suggest venting to him about everything you share with your gals, showing vulnerability to your beau can build intimacy -- and actually make you sexier. Thought Catalog shares why letting your emotions go is a good thing.

How to Get a Date Before Valentine’s Day
Thinking about buying that Groupon skiing trip you’ve been eying -- the one that your friends aren’t interested in joining? If you want a date for V-Day, take the plunge and go solo, says HowAboutWe. Finding love is easy in January -- all you have to do is get out in the cold... so someone will want to keep you warm.

What He’s Not Telling You
Skeletons in the closet, anyone? Madamenoire highlights the things your guy doesn’t want you to know… right away. Don’t worry -- they’re not deal breakers, they're actually (mostly) kinda sweet.

Can Love Give You a Mental Illness?
Yeah, those butterflies in your tummy are nice -- but be careful not to let them swarm up to your head. If you’ve ever driven past your ex’s house, texted your beau repeatedly while he’s out with his friends (haven’t we all?) or spent hours glued to his Facebook profile looking for some indication of suspicion, love has made you a little cray-cray. The Luxury Spot is here to help.
