    SHEEPSHEAD BAY, Brooklyn -- A Russian native from Brooklyn has been accused of poisoning her look-alike with a cheesecake and then stealing her identity and other property. 42-year-old Viktoria Nasyrova of Sheepshead Bay was arraigned Tuesday on attempted murder, burglary, assault and other charges and ordered held without bail. She was arrested in March last year. Her lawyer declined to comment. Prosecutors say Nasyrova visited the Queens home of the fellow Russian speaking victim in 2016 bearing a cheesecake tainted with a tranquilizer. They say the 35-year-old victim ate the cheesecake, fell ill and passed out. She was found the...

    A 19-year-old Texas councilman whose nude photos from a dating app were exposed is defending the snaps as “freedom of expression,” according to reports. Cross Coburn, who identifies as gay, said he believes homophobia is behind the X-rated photo leak, which came to light Monday when an envelope with the pics was anonymously delivered to Groves City Hall, where he is the youngest sitting councilman, news station KDFM reported. “I felt like I was being harassed; discriminated against because I’m a young gay man on City Council,” Coburn told the news station. He claimed that the screenshots of raunchy conversations...

    Liberal group launches anti-Trump dating site By Max Greenwood - 03/09/18 07:27 PM EST A liberal group has launched a dating site for critics of President Trump to counter a similar site for the president's supporters that went live last month. The group, a political startup called American Liberal Council (ALC), describes site NeverTrump.Dating as "an all-inclusive, love-pairing dating site for those who oppose and resist President Donald Trump." The website was "made with progressives, independents, disillusioned Republicans, and the LGBT community in mind," according to a press release from ALC. Ted Brown, the founder of ALC, said in a...

    Over the summer, Geoffrey Knight is in bed with a woman he is dating. He puts his hand on her breast, and she swats it away. “You need to ask before you touch me,” he recalls her saying. Knight apologizes, saying he had assumed it was okay because they had just had sex. “You should never make that assumption,” she retorts. Flash-forward a few months, and Knight, a 25-year-old Washingtonian, is sleeping with someone new. He is asking “Can I touch you here?” “Can I do this?” every step of the way, and his partner wants to know what is...
  • One-third of office romances end in unemployment

    Many companies may not ban it, but workers still have plenty of reason to avoid an office romance like the plague. One in three romantic office relationships will end in at least one person being fired, according to a survey of 150 human resources executives conducted by hiring firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas. Things aren’t necessarily better for those who don’t get fired. The survey found that 17 percent of employers chose to move at least one employee to a different department, and 5 percent of these affairs led to litigation.

    Facebook, Google, and other Silicon Valley companies are reportedly restricting employee relationships and dating practices with company dating policies. Employees at Facebook and Google are only allowed to ask out colleagues on a date once, and if they decline or simply reply that they’re busy, asking another time can open them up to sexual harassment allegations and disciplinary action.

    Declaring your relationship on Facebook used to be enough to solidify your online bond with a partner. Not anymore. Now, couples are forced to navigate the murky waters of Twitter faves, Snapchat streaks, twinstagramming, subgramming, going Instagram official, and more. While it’s long been expected that good romantic partners will dutifully like and comment on their other half’s best selfies, it’s no longer enough to simply throw digital hearts on your partner’s Instagram posts. You must also Story Watch.

    With the rise of the #MeToo movement and national crackdown on harassment in the workplace, a survey on office romance says love is not in the air when it comes to co-workers dating. CareerBuilder’s annual Valentine’s Day poll found that office romances have fallen to a 10-year low with only 36 percent of workers admitting to dating a co-worker. Just last year, the same survey reported that 41 percent of co-workers had dated.

    Some of you misguided young women (the non-misguided ones can ignore me) will resist the obvious fact that you need the romantic advice of a married, 53-year old retired Army officer who identifies as male. Well, judging from that Aziz Ansari story in, many of you sure need some guidance from someone. And since your fathers apparently went AWOL – or maybe you just didn’t listen – I’ll step in to help. Because I’m a helper. And because since so many of you are so utterly ill-equipped to interact with men, maybe you need a man to mansplain things to you.I know what’s...

    Imagine you’re a single guy. You meet a woman who appears to be sane and nice. She’s not sporting the signature rainbow hair, “statement” glasses, and hallmark sour, judgmental scowl that seems to be endemic to crazy third-wave feminists (but I repeat myself) today, and you decide to meet for a first date. You gallantly hold the door open for her, and pull out her chair, because, you know, respect. She twists her lips into an acerbic scowl, but says nothing. You figure maybe she got a splinter from the chair, or maybe she has indigestion or something, so you...

    When I was 23 years old, my boss would look down the gap at the waistband of my jeans when he walked past my desk. I was an entry-level fact-checker at my first magazine job, and he was an older and more powerful editor. My career, at the time, was in his hands. Once, when we had finished working on a story together, he suggested we get a drink to celebrate. It was a Friday night, and I remember feeling extremely nervous as we sat across from each other in a dark bar. He was flirting with me, I could...

    WILLIMANTIC, Conn. — Maybe nice guys really do finish last, after all. Women don’t view unattractive men as “dating material,” no matter how exceptional their other qualities are, a new study finds. Researchers at Eastern Connecticut State University looked at the mate preferences of 80 young women, aged 15 to 29, while also having 61 of their mothers weigh in. The participants were presented with photographs of men varying in both attractiveness and described as one of three dispositions:“friendly,” “pleasing,” or “respectful.” Additional trait profiles were explained for each of the three dispositions. Men labeled “respectful” included the traits ‘respectful,...

    Muscles and money are qualities that straight women and gay men typically find attractive in men, according to an analysis of Tube Crush—a website where people post unsolicited pictures of men seen on the London Underground. The study at Coventry and Aberystwyth universities in the United Kingdom, published in Feminist Media Studies in August, analyzed images over a period of three years since 2014. The “guy candy” posted on the website were mostly white men—despite London being a multicultural city—indicating that white male privilege is still an attractive quality.

    Sean Hannity was the friendliest possible interviewer that Roy Moore could have chosen to defend himself from accusations that he fondled a 14-year-old girl. Despite the host teeing up softballs for him, Moore flubbed his chance to put the controversy to rest, failing to completely deny dating teenage girls when in his 30s and claiming forgetfulness when trying to deny specific allegations. The money quote: "Let me ask you this, you do remember these girls? Would it be unusual for you as a 32-year-old guy to have dated a woman as young as 17? That would be a 15-year difference......

    Dear Liza, 
 I’m a 32-year-old woman who would like to have kids and a life partner in the not-so-distant future. And lucky me! I’ve recently started dating an excellent candidate. But I can’t even pretend to think it’s possible (or desirable) to have sex with just one person for the rest of my life or even, frankly, for a few years. 
 Monogamy feels antithetical to the type of feminism and anticapitalism I subscribe to. I am repulsed by the idea of being a man’s property. Also, monogamy—like capitalism—requires us to believe in a false scarcity: that we have...

    Dating is in decline among young people, a major study has found. Those born between 1995 and 2012, dubbed the “i-Generation”, are noticeably less interested in romance than their millennial predecessors, according to a new book by Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University. Teenagers from this group have grown up with social media and smart phones, meaning they spend far more time socialising with one another online than they do in person.

    Billy Peck says he spent three days in bed feeling “crushed” after he was mercilessly branded “New York’s Most Undateable Man” following a blind-date feature in Time Out New York that went viral. The aspiring actor — who also works in the hospitality industry — was lambasted online for appearing to scold his Time Out set-up, a Condé Nast employee named Alyssa Marino, with quips that she “didn’t have the goods” and “annoyed the s–t out of me.” Peck claims he was misquoted (Time Out stands by the story), and says social-media ­users told him “to kill himself” and “I...
