Actress Kristen Stewart has had a lot of experience with love, playing half of one of the most tumultuous on-screen relationships in the movie saga, Twilight, and being in love with her co-star, Robert Pattinson. UsMagazine.com reports that her advice on relationships was pretty simple.  “Don’t be an a–hole.  Don’t be mean.  Don’t take s–t.  Don’t settle,” she said.  The star continued on to say, “Good relationship advice for me tends to being honest and knowing yourself.” Although Stewart is very into all things Twilight, she reveals her boyfriend does not have the same appreciation. “Me and Taylor [Lautner] are actual Twilight fans, so we can sit there and be so totally into it!  Whereas I sit there with Rob…He likes it, but he has just such a different energy.”

Coffee is usually used to make one feel energized, and for some it’s an addiction.  And the place that people go to get their “fix” can turn into a dating ritual for some couples.  It isn’t a necessity for every date to be fancy.  Sometimes, the simplest choice can actually be the best.

Enjoy a night of comfort drinks, like a Mocha or Frappuccino, soothing music and an intimate table (or couch) for two with your hubby by checking out some of the best coffee houses in your city.

According to UsMagazine.com, the actor attended Tony Bennett’s 85th Birthday Gala benefiting Exploring the Arts in New York City. The bash, which was held at Lincoln Center’s Metropolitan Opera House, included Whoopi Goldberg, Bill and Hilary Clinton, Robert DeNiro, and of course Baldwin and Thomas were spotted packing on the PDA. “He had his hands all over [her] the entire night,” an eyewitness said. Another insider stated that Baldwin is committed to staying single, but his being so public with Thomas “makes me think it might be a little more serious.”

Stacy Keibler told People just what she thinks of her new beau George Clooney on Friday at the premiere of his new film, The Ides of March … “Everything!” she said.  That said, the fresh duo is taking baby steps into the public eye together.  For example, rather than walking the red carpet arm-in-arm, Keibler and Clooney attended an after party with friends at the Deq Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton where they were seen chatting and laughing.  One party goer said, “They have good chemistry, and she can hold her own with the boys.  They both can equally be the life of the party.”

The mind of a serial killer is something that is both intriguing, and at the same time, disturbing.  With motives that are primarily based on psychological gratification, these types of killers usually have a method to their madness, one that drives their actions and limits their inhibitions.  Belle Gunness, America’s most prolific female serial killer, is no exception.

Director, writer, producer, and Golden Globe nominee, Edward Bass, is producing a film that captures Belle’s story in the most deep, dark, and irresistible way.  …On the edge of your seat? Click here to read more.

How to Size Someone Up For the Long Run

Cupid's Pulse Article: How to Size Someone Up For the Long Run

By Dr. Samuel Barondes, author of Making Sense of People

When we meet someone new, we immediately form a tentative picture of his or her personality.  We generate this first impression in a matter of seconds, because we need it to guide our initial give and take.

Our amazing ability to rapidly size people up works so well that we continue to rely on it as we get to know the person better.  In doing so, we keep building a more elaborate intuitive impression—an impression that we rarely bother to consciously examine.  Although we may spend hours methodically assessing a new smartphone before deciding what we think of it, our assessment of someone’s personality keeps being made by the seat of our pants.

There are times, though, when we want to consciously think over what we’ve observed.  We may, for example, want to figure out if a person we are dating has the right stuff for a permanent relationship by discussing it with our friends.  But these conversations are often uninformative because few of us have been taught a systematic way to assess personalities.  This limits our ability to come up with a thoughtful appraisal of the person we have in mind, even with the assistance of those who are eager to help us.

It’s official!  Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva accepted last week’s truce deal — worth $3 million — with Mel Gibson, RadarOnline.com reports.  A forensic accountant analyzed this deal with the $15 million settlement from 2010.  “The previous offer was structured in a way that made its value less than $1 million,” her lawyer Daniel Horowitz said.  “Moreover, it required Oksana to surrender to Gibson all evidence in the criminal case against her, which could have made her subject to criminal charges ranging from bribery to destruction of evidence.”  Grigorieva’s lawyers value the present settlement, which includes 16 years living rent free in a $1.8 million home, $750,000 in periodic payments, payments to attorney fees and rights to her album and videos, “at over $3 million.”

By Linda Guma

Coping with the loss of a loved one is undoubtedly very painful. It may cause us to simultaneously experience rage, sadness, despair, and disbelief. This emotional suffering is known as grief, and it’s our natural response to loss. This week in the United States, we celebrate Patriot’s Day, which is dedicated to the victims who were killed during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  It’s a day marked with loss for many in our country, and it’s important for us to remember those who perished on that day, especially this year, since it is the tenth anniversary of that tragic event.

I’m admittedly a recovered relationship addict.  I went from relationship to relationship with little or no break in between.  Luckily, I was finally able to break that cycle and stay single for two years – before finally meeting my dream guy (and now husband).

But staying single for a serial monogamist is often easier said than done.  After all, you’re used to having a second opinion, someone to take to dinner parties and curl up with in bed.  An empty house can be frightening for someone addicted to love. Continue reading
