“Why is everyone so afraid of love?”- one of life’s age old questions, well it might have something to do with this guy.
In this 5 second video, which was originally uploaded to Vine, this guy thinks it would be fun to sneak up behind some random woman in what I can only assume to be an Ikea or Home Depot and scream out “love!” to find out the answer. The video leaves you thinking of so many different metaphors he might have been going for. Is he being romantic and implying that love can sneak up on you when you least expect it? Or does he just love scaring women while shopping? Who really knows but it will leave you in giggles.
The way to challenge somebody who thinks sexuality is a choice is by turning the tables.
When Travis Nuckolls and Chris Baker asked a group of straight people on whether being gay is a choice, the two switched things over by asking their subjects when they chose to be straight.
This is absolutely perfect and the responses here are surprisingly lovely and very reasonable. Hopefully this video can make others understand sexuality a bit more.
With his musical comeback in full swing, Justin Timberlake released the music video for “Mirrors,” the second single off of his The 20/20 Experience album, on Tuesday.
Timberlake appropriately dedicates the video to his grandparents William and Sadie as the video depicts their 63-year-old relationship with each other. The video makes us a little teary eyed as we watch their relationship evolve from their first meeting in the fifties to the present day, where video Sadie is recounting their years together without William. Timberlake’s real grandfather passed away last year.
How fitting is this tale of love considering Timberlake wants his audience to fall in love, just as he did with now-wife Jessica Biel, with his new record.

Prepare to bawl your eyes. Because the following letter will probably be the sweetest thing you will see today:
FCKH8.com, an equal rights organization, first posted the letter to Facebook on Friday morning. In the note, the father explains that he overheard his son Nate talking on the phone with his boyfriend about coming out. But the father tells him he already knew and that he never cared.
“I’ve known you were gay since you were six,” the father writes. “I’ve loved you since you were born.”
This note brings a few tears in my eyes because all parents should be accepting of their children through and through. Unfortunately, this is still not the case.
Bravo Dad! Your PostScript at the end is also adorable.
According to Buzzfeed, this portrait of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as Kate and Leo from The Titanic is hanging on the wall of a Whole Foods in Manhattan, more specifically, in the flowers section.
I wonder if the placement was a strategic effort by the grocery store staff to inspire romance to those perusing their selection of fine foliage. Though we have to say that if anyone was going to inspire romantic notions, it’s definitely not those two. Egotistical and blatant self-adoration? Yes. Love not so much.
Though I have to admit the couple’s relationship is a great source of comedy and of many face palms. But if I ever hear someone seriously argue that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s relationship is this generation’s greatest love story, I am jumping off this ship—figuratively and literally.
Psychology Today recently released a study on the most common places where Craigslist Missed Connections occur. While some may not be surprising (subways in the state of New York, bars in Winconsin and North Dakota), others are a little worrisome.
According to their map, Wal-Mart appears to be a popular place for believers in love to spot their dream guy or gal in about 14 states. Is it the drastically reduced good that make people fall in love at first site or is it the Wal-Mart greeters they’re really eyeing?
With this in mind, we start wondering what would be the worst places to meet our futures soulmates.
1. The Strip Club
Because how do you explain this chance encounter with your folks?
2. In Jail
Wouldn’t be the greatest place to try and find your “Happily Ever After.”

Being able to adequately express yourself is never an easy thing and if we learned anything this week, sometimes plagiarizing is the best way to go.
Luckily for you, we already found some content that you could (or more like should) rip off. Here are just some classic Valentine’s Day ideas:
But just in case you’re quickly running out of options, here are some highly original ways to go about saying, “I love you.”
The Passive Aggressive Love Note:
The Newspaper Love Note:
And, the re-used Christmas Card:
I could hear it now, “No, Baby. I didn’t forget Valentine’s Day! I’m just trying to safe the Earth from our consumerist ways!”
However, I would suggest avoid giving your boo a Valentine’s Day message inspired by fugitive ex-cop, Christopher Dorner. It doesn’t really send the right message, does it?

Like, leave me alone please
Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone, especially those who much rather enjoy the single life. Some reasons why one is single is: they can’t date their favourite celebrity, they can’t date the internet, or they can’t date themselves. The media basically showered us all with high expectations that are almost impossible to meet. If you believe all of that, plus what you’ve seen in Disney films, good luck finding the special one. [heavens-1n-your-eyes]
Celeb-inspired Valentine’s card
Remember when you were little and Valentine’s Day was a huge deal because of all the fun classroom activities that were to come? You’d go to the store with your parents and pick up a box of cards of your choice — most likely relating to your favourite TV show or a bunch of cute animals. Throw all of that aside and give this Snoop Lion card to the boy of your dreams. [bunnyyears]
Bieber > Everyone else
Not only does he write and sing songs that make you wanna melt, Justin Bieber always gives his Beliebers the attention they deserve, especially when it comes to replying to them on Twitter. Justin even serenaded us all with a sexy Valentine’s Day message during his Saturday Night Live gig this week. All I can say is look at this YOLO moment one fan wrote, and the best part is that he agreed! [last-bye]
Make your mouth water
One of my favourite things to eat (and I’m being totally serious) is Nutella. But what would make a Nutella sandwich even better? Strawberries of course! Not fully covered but it’s kinda like Hannah Montana where you get the best of both worlds. [ohsweetbasil]
Play your way out of a text
Chances are: You once had a creepy guy send you a message like this, which then made you wanna gag a little and then not even recall giving him your number. Whatever you do, get out of it and quick. [makemestfu]
Spice up your wardrobe
Who really cares about lingerie when you can go on a spring shopping spree and buy cute skinny jeans and casual shirts to flaunt during the month of February? I know it might be a little cold but once in a while you can bare through it and look super cute! [yourfashioninspiration]
Or just walk around wearing this
I mean if you’re THAT desperate for a Valentine, wear this sweater in a public place (ie. at school, the mall) and see what options come up to you. Hopefully it’s not the same creepy dude who was sending you that late night, unwanted text! [instagram-lovely]
What the day is actually called
For all you single people out there, Feb. 14 is just another day alone. But don’t put yourself down too harshly. Buy yourself a box of chocolate and continuously eat them until you don’t feel lonely anymore. [ladieslaughing]
Curl up on your couch and watch a movie because what else could be better? You could get all hopeless-romantic and turn on The Notebook or go the other direction and watch a hilarious comedy. [attributive]
That old saying “love is a drug” is actually based on science. According to AsapSCIENCE, your brain on love looks a lot like your brain on cocaine as it acts on the pleasure thresholds of your brain. Short story: When you’re in love, you actually begin to build a romanticized view of the world around you and feel really good a lot easier.
“The Science of Love” explains why people fall in love with each other, even though science still knows very little about exactly how it works. You might remember them from their video “Amazing Facts to Blow Your Mind and “The Science of Morning Wood.” Though this one is timed perfectly for Valentine’s Day!
Being single on Valentine’s Day is what you make of it: utterly depressing as you watch romcom after romcom or just another day minus the flowers and chocolate.
Just in case you see the day as the former, take solace in the fact that these good-looking celebrities are also single on Valentine’s Day. I mean, if they can’t get a date, what hope do we really have?
Just don’t use this list as an excuse to stalk them during your desperate attempts to pencil in a last minute date. I don’t want to be the reason why you’re stuck in the local county jail for the night instead of at home, scouring the internet with your cat by your side.

Recover from last night’s party
Whether you were celebrating with friends, family, or woke up with the person you met last night, it’s time to get back to reality. School starts back next week and you probably have a work shift to get to. 2012 was fun while it lasted, but make sure 2013 is even more memorable! [getinmystockingleo]
Be kinder to others
Okay admit it, Mean Girls is hands down one of your favourite movies, am I right? Even though the whole flick is hilarious, you could learn a few lessons. If there’s a new student transferring from Africa (or anywhere else) be the bigger person and let them sit with you! In the end, nobody likes a “Regina George.” [photographyxox]
Cut down on the calories
I get it. That chocolate bar is tempting. Those chips are addicting. Those cookies smell so fresh. But guess what, 6-months down the line will be summer and you’re gunna be kicking yourself wishing you DIDN’T eat what you did months ago. Be prepared to show off that beach bod. [debramorgan]

Guys are simple creatures and if you know how to read them it’s very simple to tell when they have a crush on a girl. In this episode of Staff Members Talking Shit, Brittany, Kelly, Jordan, Casey and Dan give you all the information you need to know on men. If you’re wondering whether or not that guy in your math lecture is ever going to ask you out, hopefully this helps. Or it might make things worse. Either way, we tried.
Hate those people who suck at Instagram? You know, the people who use a million hashtags, post pointless photos, and ask for pitty follow backs? More importantly, if you’re guilty of any one of those insta-felonies, watch this video! It will educate and stop n00bs from wrecking instagram, and you just might get a follower or two in the process.
The well-coiffed guys of One Direction have been so successful at sneakily spiking their music with powerful (though invisible) love potion that these ladies decided to sacrifice any reasonable shot at a mutual relationship and commit themselves fully to their favourite band.
Okay, maybe their dreams aren’t completely unreasonable as anything’s possible. But it sure looks like each contender will have a lot of competition from fellow fans to capture the heart of their favourite member.
It also means that if guys want to have any shot at love they’ll have to morph into a member of 1D. Ladies’ expectations have been set so high that if you’re not a look-a-like they’d rather commit to a life of singledom.

If you’re single like me this Valentine’s Day, get your flirt on with these eligible celebrities that Conan O’Brien kindly wrangled up for us. Watch John Krasinski, Seth Green and Chelsea Handler, among others, make their best offers. Their words may be more blunt than romantic but the sentiment is nice!
Apparently Kelly Clarkson attended the Chris Brown school of affection. Let’s be clear, there’s nothing funny about domestic violence and Ms. Clarkson was probably joking but I digress.
While she over-seas doing press Kelly Clarkson was asked about Adele. Bewildered by her overwhelming success and incredible talents, the American Idol created quite the stir today on the Internet. During an interview with the Guardian Kelly allegedly stated the following:
“I want to punch Adele in the face!” …. “She is just too good.”
Her sentiments were meant to be a compliment but didn’t exactly drive home a flattering message. This is the type of rational stalkers use to justify wanting to keep a celebrity locked in their closet indefinitely. Let’s hope “Miss Independent” doesn’t become “Miss Prohibited To Come Within 100 Meters.”
Jennifer Lopez is inspired by Lady Gaga to do “great things,” reports CTV.
The ‘American Idol’ judge and singer is apparently a huge fan of Gaga, and is inspired by her creativity to take her music to another level.
“I’m always motivated by other artists and inspired by them. They inspire me because when I see other people doing great things, it makes me want to do great things too,” says Lopez.
Lopez got the inspiration from working with Gaga on her latest album ‘Love?,’ where Gaga lent her talents on the tracks ‘Hypnotico’ and ‘Invading My Mind.’
“I love her (Gaga’s) sense of lyric and melody, I feel like she’s very interesting. It’s just not something you’re gonna hear every day,” Lopez tells MTV News.
“I really love the records she worked on and was glad to be able to take those and make them my own and actually have that collaboration with her. I feel very lucky to have done that.”
Hopefully, Lopez means she’ll be riskier in her music now, not that she’ll be showing up to events in ridiculous outfits and antics. That’s Gaga’s forte.
