Do Men Not Set Men Up?

Jessie Rosen - April 21, 2015

A few weeks back R and I were discussing the idea of setting up a friend. We met a guy. We know a girl. We think they might like to know each other. To be fair, it was R’s idea, which makes this post even more interesting. In order to complete the set-up, we needed the assistance of another person – the person who knows …

If They Cheated, Would You Tell?

Jessie Rosen - April 14, 2015

On Friday night R and I saw the latest Noah Baumbach movie, WHILE WE’RE YOUNG. It’s a funny/interesting/depressing/uplifting/way-too-true story, if you’re interested in that sort of thing, but the reason I’m writing about it today is because it prompted a conversation about cheating, specifically – who would you tell on if they cheated? Without giving anything away, there is a moment of infidelity in the movie, …

Hear R & Me Talk Finance & Romance on NPR

Jessie Rosen - April 13, 2015

Last week R and I offered to talk about openly our married finances in exchange for the chance to hear our voices on NPR. I’m not sure it was a fair trade in the end because I always forget that I sound much like a middle school teacher’s pet, but I think we imparted some interesting wisdom on how to combine your money and stay …

7 Things I’ll Do While My Husband is Away

Jessie Rosen - March 17, 2015

R is on official television business in two Canadian cities for the next 10 days. This makes me sad because I prefer when R is in the same city as me, plus I just started watching EMPIRE (and loving every second of it) and now I have to recap each and every detail of the episodes for him over Facetime, and I hate how I …

The (Strong and Highly Recommended Case) For Acting Like You Don’t Want a Boyfriend

Jessie Rosen - March 10, 2015

Yesterday I had the delightful opportunity to sit down with a majestic tiny dog named Blanche and her owner Iliza Shlesinger as a guest on Iliza’s podcast, Truth and Iliza. We talked about many things – how I hate Ariana Grande’s pony tail and Iliza loves it, how I’m not technically Jewish even though Iliza thinks I am, how we both really hate noises that …

Your Super Last-Minute Valentine’s Gift Guide

Jessie Rosen - February 12, 2015

Why plan your Valentine’s Day shopping in advance when you can rely on a fool proof guide from me three days before the 14th? Here are some of my favorite last-minute items for guys and girls. I tried to keep them reasonably priced and reasonably easy to get. I also tried to remember that this is a Hallmark holiday and a thoughtful card and fun …

The First Co-Ed Sunday Night Sex Talks (And While I’ll Never Stop Doing the No-Boys-Allowed Show)

Jessie Rosen - February 3, 2015

One week from today I’ll be hosting the very first boys-allowed version of Sunday Night Sex Talks, the NO boys allowed storytelling show that I started three years ago in the back room of Bar Lubitsch on Santa Monica Blvd. If you’re in L.A. I can’t imagine why you’d miss it. We have a dream line-up, the new UCB Sunset is or venue, tickets are …

Do Not Date Him If…

Jessie Rosen - November 18, 2014

I’m back from a quick trip east with an attempt to save you from some of the garbage people that I hear are trolling the dating pool. In three shorts weeks I’ve talked to not one or three but five women who were wronged by a dude based on one of the following scenarios. While I want to tell you to be trusting, hopeful, open …

#HumpDayHappy: Make Money Off Your Awful Ex!

Jessie Rosen - October 29, 2014

I’m always for making lemonade out of lemons, especially if those lemons are of the crappy relationship variety. Case in excellent point NEVER LIKED IT ANYWAY – the genius creation of some ladies who decided to trade in their boyfriend battle wounds for money and, apparently, fame (The New York Times, marie claire, and The Today Show have already come knocking). The origin story: Annabel …
