The Most Idiotic and Dismissive Thing You Can POSSIBLY Say To Someone Who Is Grieving
Just because "your intentions are good" doesn't mean you aren't causing harm.
When someone you love, or even just like, suffers a loss, it can be hard to know what to say to them.
Which is silly. There actually are PLENTY of things you can say to them that will help.
And there are plenty of things you can say that basically mean, "Fuck you."
Valentine's Day is right around the corner -- but it doesn't matter! My Eva Via original duet, Year-Round Valentine, is about how, when you're in love, every day can feel like Valentine's Day.
Even Valentine's Day.
Everyone thinks female friendships are chill and non-competitive and that women never fight - but that's not always true.
To all the hundreds of men who say "women will never be attracted to me" - Here's what you're doing wrong.
As anyone who follows my blog or Facebook knows, the two posts that consistently get the most views per month are
What Men Don't Understand When They Complain, "It's Only Creepy If The Guy Isn't Hot
"Creepy" Isn't About Attractiveness. It's About Reciprocity.

Just a muscle man shirt ($20) and a navy blue one-piece ($20-$40) and you're set.
I don't always use my Halloween costume to make a political statement. Sure, I've gone as Sandra Fluke and microaggressions. I even went as the Little Mermaid -- beforeâ it was controversial! But I've also gone as Bethany Hamilton (a disabled female surfer I admire) and a spoonbill, just because I like them.
But in 2022, women's rights are under attack in a profound way -- and that attack is coming from the regressive left.

I really shouldn't do this, but I'm going to let you in on a super top secret girl secret:
No, women do NOT want pants with pockets.
I Accidentally Used The Men's Room At Disney. I'm Now Convinced Anyone Who Would Do This On Purpose is a Sociopath.
I spend enough time mountain biking, camping, and surfing, that people assume I'm not a "Disney person."
The truth is, I freaking love Disney. As someone who loves music, art, playfulness, psychology, engineering, and business, how could I not be in awe of the magic of this place?
But I did have one experience during my last visit to Disney that was not quite so magical.
I Wrote My Number On His Hand - A Song About The Powerful Intimacy of Small Touches (And The Awesomeness of the Girl Making the First Move)
