Love aholics dating site
With a name like Love, how could you not be a hopeless romantic?
But as an adult who's been both lucky and unlucky in love, most of it on the front page of the tabloids, the star and co-producer of the CBS series Ghost Whisperer says she's traded in her rose-colored glasses for a more clear-eyed look at modern romance.
It's a view she shares in her new book, The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I'm a Love-aholic.
Hewitt says she envisioned the book as a "mate and a friend in the dating process, the good angel on your shoulder." Cupid covers everything from being comfortable going out to eat solo, to recovering from a breakup, to what guys really think of our butts (you'd be pleasantly surprised), to "vagazzling your vajayjay." (Yes, she really did it.) What it's not, Hewitt says, is The Rules for the 2010s.
"I read The Rules and all those other dating books and loved them, and I took little bits from each," she says.
You'd meet your perfect mate, fall in love, and that would be the end of it," she recalls. You have to go through the steps of grief, giving up the illusion that you'd fall off your high heel one day and a guy would pick you up, and that would be it. If you listen, instead of mentally dressing him up in the suit he's going to wear to your best friend's wedding, it'll save you months and years of time." And at first, while you're listening -- really listening -- do a little less of the talking, says Hewitt. Tessina, author of The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again and The 10 Smartest Decisions a Woman Can Make Before 40, says that, for some couples, the option to text, Facebook, and Skype each other has its advantages -- but you have to be a couple first.
