8 signs you are a side chick

Being a side chick usually isn’t by choice. Often times men make women side chicks without their knowing and these women end up getting hurt when they discover they aren’t ‘the one’. So if you think your man isn’t being straight with you, here are seven signs that you may be a side chick.download36

1. His house is a CIA secret

You’ve never been invited to his house for a date. You have no idea what his house looks like or where he even lives, despite the fact that you two have been dating for months now. When a guy is entirely uninterested or unwilling to show you his home or invite you into it, it’s likely because he shares his home with another woman. He doesn’t want to get caught in his lie anthere’s not enough time to hide the evidence and then put everything back into its place.woman-sad-couple

2.  He never spends the night.

That’s because his time is being accounted for by another woman. He has to be home by a certain time, or even if his woman knows he’s cheating, all she cares about is that he comes home every

3. His phone never leaves his sight

Men who are players tend to be highly protective of their phones. He has a password on his phone and makes sure to lock it after every time he uses it. When the phone rings, he either goes into another room to take the call, ignores it completely, or turns the volume down super low so that you can’t possibly hear a thing that is being

4. He doesn’t show up when he’s supposed to  

Let’s just say he does make plans with you, but constantly stands you up with no explanations or apologies. If he gets ghost a lot, that’s a serious red flag.woman waiting for her date


5. You’ve never met his parents or friends

Most men who are proud and happy with their relationship will eventually introduce their girlfriend to his parents and/or his friends. If you have never met, let alone spoken to his parents or friends, this is a huge sign that you can’t be known amongst his inner circles. Why? Because he’d immediately be ousted as a cheater and a

6. He NEVER talks about the future

Asking him about his views on the future of your relationship is like pulling teeth. Simply put, this guy doesn’t want to think about the future because he really isn’t planning one. In his mind he’s probably well aware that keeping you as the other woman won’t last for too long, so why plan on a future at all?African_couple_arguing_in_bed_GOGOCAA00446-e1324034198374

7. You aren’t on any of his social media pages

Somewhere in convenient survey land is a stat that shows Facebook and Twitter is the fastest growing catalyst for failed relationships. It’s very easy to get caught slipping on such Social Networks which is why if a guy refuses to acknowledge you on his timeline he’s trying to hide your affiliation. This same guy may also disable his facebook wall to prevent your inevitable declaration of crush on him. Typical excuses include “I’m not saying that I don’t want people to know about us, I just don’t like to air out my business”<— relatable BUT where some guys are genuine with this others know what they’re doing when dealing with a side chickstop-friends-from-asking-you-what-your-relationship-status-is-facebook.w654

8. Your relationship is almost entirely physical

When he compliments you, it’s about how nice your body is or how good you are in bed. When you two spend time together, it usually ends up between the sheets. He doesn’t wine and dine you often but instead focuses more on having you and getting out. When a guy refuses to connect with you on a mental or emotional level, it could be because he’s already connected that way with his main woman.Black-couple-kissing-2


If you consciously go into a relationship knowing that you are the side chick, then good luck! But if that’s not your goal, please know that you deserve and are worth much more than what he is giving you.


The very WORST reason why I was dumped!

‘The hospital I had been admitted to was too far away for him to drive to’: Reddit users reveal the very WORST reasons why they were dumped

  • A Reddit thread has asked the worst reasons behind a break-up
  • One man broke up with his girlfriend because her forehead was too big
  • Another was dumped for refusing to take advantage of his girlfriends body

Being dumped is bad enough, but being dumped because your ‘forehead is too big’ is next level heartache.

A Reddit thread has revealed the most outrageous reasons why couples break-up, and it’s not because they simply grew apart. The list of relationship deal breakers included being too respectful, not being the fastest runner in the class and refusing to apologise for cheating… despite it only happening in a dream!

‘She basically left because I refused to apologise for cheating on her. With her sister. In a dream. That she had,’ one person wrote.

Another appeared to still hold a grudge despite the break-up happening when he was in primary school. ‘I was 6 years old. She was 5. I was the tallest kid in class, and thus got the girl. However, she dumped me because Charlie ran faster than me. F*** you Charlie,’ he said.

A perk of being in a relationship is having someone there for you when times get tough, but having a girlfriend in hospital proved too much for one man. ‘The hospital I had been admitted to was too far away for him to drive to, and he didn’t want to look like an a** for not visiting his girlfriend,’ his disgruntled ex-partner revealed.

They say good guys finish last, and this appeared to be the case for man who said when he was 14, he was dumped because he never pressured his girlfriend for sex so ‘she assumed I was gay’.

And it’s not just men doing the break up, a man was dumped after he could no longer afford to buy his girlfriend lunch every day and she admitted she was just ‘in it for the food’

What’s the worst reason someone has broken up with you over?

Sexy Victoria’s Secret lingerie show hits 20-year mark

Yes, Tuesday was Victoria’s Secret sexpot angel time, though the masses will have to wait until 10 p.m. EST on Dec. 8 to watch the 20th annual lingerie extravaganza on CBS. This was just the taping, including musical performances by The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez, after Rihanna abruptly canceled.


Veteran VS walkers like Lily Aldridge and Alessandra Ambrosio were joined by newbie angels, including Martha Hunt and Elsa Hosk. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were among the non-winged supermodels new to the glitzy show that generates weeks of advance buzz and will be seen in 192 countries by more than 500 million people, according to company officials.

In all, 47 models blew air kisses, flirted on stage with the camera and flipped their varied wings around as they strutted on the runway in 75 looks at a Manhattan armory. But first, there was hair and makeup to be done and a “pink carpet” of celebrity guests to be walked. Questlove and Nick Cannon were on hand, along with a dapper member of the Mets, Matt Harvey, in a black Versace suit.

Caitlyn Jenner was among those who attended the runway show to cheer on daughter Kendall


Hadid said backstage that she has big respect for the veteran angels and hopes to earn her own wings one day. Brand new angel Rachel Hilbert, from Rochester, New York, was in the Pink USA squad on the runway, and was also in awe of the longtime ladies, including Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima, seated just inches away on a comfy white couch in rollers backstage.

“Uh, yeah, Adriana Lima. She’s sitting right there,” Hilbert smiled as all wore pink-and-white striped robes, curlers in their hair, while manicures, pedicures, spray tanning and makeup commenced. “She’s such a sweetheart. Her advice was just breathe and just take it in.”

So how were the nerves for the newcomers?

“Actually, surprisingly, not bad,” Hadid said before the show. “I was really nervous in rehearsal.”

She shared the stage later with Gomez and Goulding.

“I love both of them,” said Hadid, who fell to the floor and gasped in a video of her audition, when she was told she was picked.

As for her famous curves, she prepared with the help of boxing and ballet.


“A lot of sweating and then just focusing on smaller parts because when everything’s in high-def you have to not forget about the little things,” Hadid said. “I’ve watched the show my entire life and this has been such a dream.”

The show featured sections of ’60s boho angels flashing piece signs in teeny bras and panties, swinging fringe and showing off wings made of sculptured paper, leather and feathers, including Jenner. Her gal pal Hadid was among a group of exotic butterflies with wings and outfits sparkling with crystals. The patriotic pink group included an American-flagged theme outfit and wings.

This year’s iteration of the annual Fantasy Bra was fashioned in bursts of fireworks, the theme for one of the liveliest sections of the show. The demi-bra and matching belt are worth $2 million and were worn by Aldridge. They were created by the jewelry company Mouawad in 18-karat gold and encrusted with 6,500 diamonds, blue topaz, yellow sapphires and other precious stones.

Hunt was the last firework, closing the show in another center piece, courtesy of Swarovski, one of the evening’s sponsors. It was a corset sparkling with 90,000 gold, red, green and blue crystals. The look, along with her light-up wings, included 20,000 crystals and 1,200 battery-powered LED lights. The battery pack she lugged weighed in at 19 pounds.

“I did practice … with a trainer. I wore a weighted vest and walked back and forth in high heels,” she said.


Hunt’s last meal before hitting the makeup chair was eggs. She promised her first after the show would be: “Pizza. … Pizza is one of my favorite foods. Pizza and pasta.”

Gomez, a buddy of previous Victoria’s Secret show performers like Taylor Swift, along with some of the walkers, performed on the splashy stage with her dancers as models walked, as did The Weeknd and Goulding.

“I don’t know if I could be an angel, I’m not gonna lie,” Gomez joked. “I look at how hard they work. I like fried food too much. I don’t know if I could give that up.”

Lima, marking her 16th year as an angel, said her nerves leading up to each show never really go away.

“It’s a little bit tough after so many years because the girls are so beautiful and I have to keep up with them,” laughed the 34-year-old mother of two. “I work out as much as I can, and you know, I feel great … I feel wonderful in my skin.”


Lingerie Hacks, tips for women

Always wear a nude colour bra under white outfits and use a paper clip to turn a brassiere into a racerback, says an expert. Neha Kant has shared tips and hacks for ladies.

Use a paper clip to turn a bra into a racerback, or to hide straps that keep poking out from sleeveless tops.

* Colour: Always wear a nude or beige colour bra under white outfits for no show. Most girls make the mistake of wearing white under white which is not right.

* One bra style is not enough for every kind of outfit: Like with an off-shoulder dress instead of wearing a bra with transparent straps, which in most case are hardly transparent, one should go for a tube or a strapless bra.

* Accessories: Interesting bra accessories like low back converters are a saviour if one wants to wear a low back dress.

* Know your size: For broad body types, a bra extender can be used to extend current band girth.

* Straps: Keep a strapless from falling down by securing it with a convertible strap.

* If the straps are digging in, it means under-bust band is loose and is not providing adequate support. Go down a band size.

* How to preserve the elasticity: Rotate between four bras and switch them out every week to preserve their elasticity.

* How to know if your bra fits well: If you lift your arms over your head, the band of your bra should lay flat against your rib cage with the cups containing all of your tissues.

* Try “sister sizing” of bra if you do not get the perfect fit. For example, A 36B will have a similar cup size of 34C.

Here’s Paloma Faith looking lovely in her skimps for Agent Provocateur

Your friend and ours, Paloma Faith, has harkened back to her former days of working in Agent Provocateur shops in London – as she casually drapes herself across a shop counter looking seriously smokin’ in their lingerie for the new AP ad campaign.

Paloma worked in the Soho branch when she was studying for her MA in Theatre Directing, and the pictures for this campaign were shot by her former ‘shop girl’ colleague Alice Hawkins. There’s lovely.

She follows the likes of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, who’ve also draped themselves around things and across things in AP lingerie for their ad campaigns.

“I’ve never had a job – other than at AP – that has formed me as a person or influenced my whole life,” she said.

“When I walk past the shop in Soho I feel really nostalgic about a time when I think I was quite carefree. I look back at it and just I think of youth.”

If you’re fairly into your lingerie yourself, you should definitely head down to Cosmopolitan’s Lingerie Show next week, as part of our week-long Fashion Festival! Click here for more tickets and info on all the freebies you’ll get, and check out highlights from last year, below. Sweet.
