By Jennifer Ross

At a recent Glamour magazine hosted event in NYC, Olivia Wilde gushed to the audience over her new boyfriend, Jason Sudeikis, although she didn’t name him directly. When comparing Sudeikis, 37, to the likes of say David Beckham, the House M.D. star said she “would drop him [Beckham] off at the pound.” This in no way was a jab at Beckham, but rather an example of how smitten she is over her new beau. During her monologue reading, Wilde spoke about the raw truth on personal matters such as her divorce, her body and her strong feelings for her partner.

The love story of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart — take two! Several sources have confirmed to People that the Twilight on-and-off-screen couple is back together at last. To recap, the two broke up back in July when Stewart, 22, admitted to having a short affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, who himself was a very married man. Soon after, Pattinson, 26, put their L.A. home up for sale and moved out. After much time separated, the two decided to meet up in L.A. around September 15 and have been practically inseparable since then. The newly reunited couple has yet to make their formal public debut on the red carpet, which is scheduled to happen while promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 movie at the end of this month.

Love and relationship expert Patti Stanger is doling out some love advice yet again, this time related to new couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. Only romantically linked since April, the celebrity duo met on the set of That 70′s Show more than 14 years ago, according to People. Although Stanger is not picking Kunis over Kutcher’s ex, Demi Moore, she loves this new relationship development because it gives her a chance to discuss how to spark a new love after touching base with someone from your past. One piece of advice she gives it to set yourself up now for a romance in the future. She advises not to dwell on relationships that aren’t ready to happen as of yet and to continue meeting new people and trying new things. According to Stanger, space and experience are key.

As reported to People by an observer, the love birds even had a cozy dinner with another couple at Spasso restaurant on Saturday night and were “all lovey-dovey.” It looks like the love that began April is still holding strong.

are you scaring mr. right away?

Ladies, have you been wondering why your friends have an easy time dating and maintaining their relationships but somehow you have difficulty maintaining your romances? Have you been noticing a trend in the way that your relationships end? If you answered yes, it may be time to consider that the problem may be YOU. Admitting that we may be the problem is never easy, but if you’re doing the same things and reaping the same results, it’s time for some self-reflection.

As a Love Coach, I’ve coached many single women on forming and maintaining healthy, successful relationships. Over time I’ve noticed several recurring themes that prevent women from doing just that. I’m going to share these behaviors with you.

We watch our favorite female celebrities being lifted off their feet (many times) on the big screen while riding off into the night hand-in-hand with a George Clooney or Zac Efron while we are left drooling and fantasizing about our own love story. We leave the movie theater captivated by this notion of ‘Mr. Right,’ and we’re deceived by love more than ever. Let’s take a look at a few important factors to keep in mind when aiming to find your ‘Mr. Right’:

Can Being A Sibling Teach You To Have A Good Relationship?

By Steven Zangrillo

My sister and I grew up in Suburbia, which affords bored, middle-class children multiple opportunities for creative mayhem.  My sister, therefore, functioned as a-guinea pig of sorts.  For instance, picture a 10-year-old and his friends chasing you around with Super Soakers filled to the hilt with pickle juice.  You’d have hated me, too.  When we both hit adolescence, we grew up a little bit.  We went to high school and started to test the dating waters.  As if being a 14-year-old, pimple-faced fat kid wasn’t enough, I had to come home to the chiding laughter of my older, hotter, more dating-tested sister whenever I failed.  Good news of failed romance spreads fast in Suburbia.  My immaturity blinded me from taking in the romance lessons that are now so clear to me.  Let’s break them down:

Disputing couple. Photo: Innovated Captures / Bigstock.com

By Ashley DelBello with contributions by relationship expert, Melanie Mar

“You value the things you have to work hard for, not the things that are handed to you,” says a mid-twenty something male friend of mine when discussing if a woman should play hard to get when she first meets a guy.  While that may seem to sum up the answer to this ultimate singleton question, it’s a bit more complex than that.  A guy may think a girl is really cool, but if she’s too available at first, then he will question it.  The opposite is true, too.  If a girl plays too hard to get and is unavailable, then he will lose interest.

So, throw out the “dating rules” — you don’t have to wait three days before calling or texting back, but you do need to consider each situation and act accordingly.  For instance, don’t be available every time he asks you out, but be sure to offer an alternative day to meet up.  Celebrity life coach and relationship pro Melanie Mar chimed in on what women should do when they first meet a guy and how to keep his interest:

By Lori May

Benjamin Flajnik, also known as “Bachelor Ben,” is the latest contestant on The Bachelor to go looking for love. With the season drawing closer to the final episode and live special, more and more fans of the series are perplexed by who Benjamin Flajnik is–and what is he really looking for in a Lady Love?

 What does Astrology tell us about Benjamin Flajnik and his quest for love?

Benjamin Flajnik is a Virgo (Sun Sign placement), based on the public information of his birth date being September 10th, 1982, in California. As an avid fan of The Bachelor, I have tuned in since the beginning of Ben’s season only to be repeatedly amused by just how much of a “typical Virgo” Ben seems to be.

Popular social networking sites, such as Facebook, are great for many things.  Re-connecting with old classmates, checking out your best friend’s vacation photos and sharing the news that you had an exciting celebrity sighting, are some of the best reasons to log on.  But when it comes to your love life, is Facebook your friend… or foe?

Social media provides access to all of the key information about the object of your affection.  Status updates revealing their whereabouts, wall posts indicating updates from their friends and photos that can point to previous romantic partners, offer you a glimpse into their private world.  If relationships are about getting to know the other person better, it’s easy to see how checking your better half’s page many times per day might be justified.

In a interview for Vanity Fair, Lady Gaga opened up about her love life.  The singer is known less for her romantic relationships, and more so for her dedicated relationship with her fans.  According to E! Online, Gaga thinks that she will never know martial bliss.  With the divorce plague that many stars face, it can be hard to find love in the entertainment business.  Gaga told Vanity Fair that it isn’t the men she dates that are the problem, but herself.  Whatever the issue, we hope Gaga finds love.  But if she doesn’t, her little monsters will still get great music out of it.
