We love our partners. We really do. I mean, that’s why we promised not to canoodle with anyone else while we seeing each other. (Talk about sacrifice.) But there’s only so many nights we can stand hanging out with our “couple friends,” sipping wine and sampling cheeses. We don’t want to be one of those people who starts dating someone only to morph into a two-person unit, while our single friends disappear one by one. To fight off codependence, we’ve compiled a list of 20 things to do without your significant other. Things that will make you feel good and, most likely, improve your couple time, too.
The end is rarely easy. And, God, can it be awkward. Personally, I don’t apply specifics for each gender on how to end a thing (a “thing” being anything that lasts a couple months or seven dates, give or take; ending a “relationship” is a whole other bag of misery). When it comes to the end, whether you’re a man dumping a woman, a woman dumping a man, or a gay dude dumping a gay dude, you want it to be as humane as possible. But which method of ending a “thing” is most humane? Let’s have a look, from least to most kind.
Minnesota couple Charmagne Tessmer and her new husband Aaron Derichs actually rescheduled their wedding to watch the high school football game.
What is the mentality of an individual that chooses to murder an estranged partner, then commit suicide? This type of violence, primarily directed towards females, has also included coworkers and family members of the intended target, as well as the couple’s own children. Though many are married and going through a divorce, murder/suicides are common amongst singles as well. Dr. Katherine von Wormer, author of “Death by Domestic Violence: Preventing the Murders and Murder-Suicides” joins us to discuss this disturbing aspect of dating gone very, very wrong. The call in number is 347-327-9215.
Just yesterday afternoon, CelebLove reported that Rachel Uchitel, Tiger Woods’ supposed girl-on-the-side, has denied all rumors that she had a sexual relationship with the pro golfer. The rumors began a couple of weeks ago when The National Enquirer ran a story about the alleged affair…But the Enquirer was ready with proof that Rachel does indeed know at least one of its sources, Ashley Samson, and posted an online report slamming Rachel and revealing her many contradictory statements. Apparently, Rachel and Ashley were close enough to vacation in Spain together, and the Enquirer is publishing an exclusive Web photo the two girls partying on that recent trip.
Exes Jude Law and Sienna Miller have been spending time together lately, and sources say the former couple was looking like a lot more than friends last Thursday in a late-night outing.
We love Drew Barrymore, but you have to admit that the woman has some odd taste in men. Not surprisingly, her latest foray into romance with Mac spokesman and actor Justin Long may have hit another speed bump, which is sad, because the couple look so darn cute together.

Move over K-Stew and R-Pattz. Are Glee’s Rachel and Puck the next superhot couple? Is it true? Does Heidi Montag REALLY fancy herself the next Calvin Klein model? Don’t you want to know? Because we do, and that’s why we’re so glad that our friend and YourTango writer Bonnie Fuller just relaunched HollywoodLife.com.

The Mayans’ prediction that the world would end in 2012 must have been off by a couple of years, because we’ve just received a sure sign that the Apocalypse is now upon us: Jon Gosselin has a sex tape…According to Jon’s former “nanny with benefits,” Stephanie Santoro, “[Bodyguard] Tom told me that Jon was secretly videotaped having sex with a woman in Los Angeles in October, and he’s seen the tape! Tom said people close to Jon put a camera in his hotel room, and paid a girl to flirt with Jon and have sex with him. He also told me he saw Jon snort cocaine on more than one occasion, and that the more Jon got into partying, the more cocaine he used!
Taking a road trip with a lover is sometimes as precarious as a first date. Say or do the wrong thing—or forget to bring a proper caseload of snacks—and you’re in trouble. While it’s clear that some things should be utterly avoided on the road—like discussing whether dating for two months makes things “exclusive”—other major tragedies in coupledom can be avoided if you follow a few helpful tips.
It’s interesting that new couple LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian met while filming a Lifetime movie, because their off-screen love story is turning into one! Life & Style is now reporting that Eddie has already tired of LeAnn, and has rekindled his relationship with ex-lover, former Hawaiian Tropic girl Scheana Marie Jancan. An unnamed source claims that [Eddie] told [Scheana] he’s only with LeAnn for the publicity and that he plans to end things with her soon.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a happy couple must be in want of another happy couple to be BFFs with for life. Fred and Wilma had their Barney and Betty; Lucy and Ricky had their Ethel and Fred. It seems that for every dynamic couple, there exists an assumed want for a complementary pair of friends, who are also a couple, to bond mutually with.
One blogger thinks a relationship’s health can be measured partner’s response to the three words, “While You’re Up.” We’ve listed four additional signs your relationship might be in need of a tune-up and suggestions on how to start that process.
It’s been revealed in the last couple of decades that it is theoretically possible for men and women to be platonic friends. There is a chance, says society, that a grown guy and lady can hang out and not try to have sex with each other (or secretly hope that it might “happen”). Frankly, this is probably on the woman because allegedly the fairer gender decides within a relatively short period of time if she’ll ever seriously consider doing a guy (the guy, though, likely holds out hope). Pop culture lends that hope (Pam and Jim, Harry and Sally, et cetera), but I digress.
