Beware Of Scorpio Season: Weekly Horoscopes October 21-25 | Betches

Aries Taurus Have any unfinished business left over from Libra season? Yeah, now is the time to tie that up. Preferably before Wednesday, when Scorpio will inject its iconically intense energy into your life, making you focus less on your to-do list and more on your intimate relationships. Don’t be surprised if you feel the need to call up a long lost friend or actually make that coffee date you’ve been saying you’ll make for months.

4 Signs It’s Time To Walk Away From A Relationship | Betches

As you may be able to guess from my very depressing yet relatable intro, I’m currently in a situation (can’t even call it a relationship) with someone who is giving me whiplash like never before. Long story short, he likes me a lot and wants to keep seeing me, but due to some lie he told me, he can’t commit. In hindsight, he obviously said all that crap so that he could keep hooking up with me without ever having to take me on a date or get anywhere below surface level. After realizing this, all I have to say is *Amy Dunne voice* no f*ckin’ way. So to all of the people in similarly absurd situations, here are four …

Kylie Jenner Is Hanging Out With Tyga Again | Betches

Earlier this week, the celebrity world was rocked with the news that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are Travis cheated earlier this year, he and Kylie have recently seemed like one of the more stable Kardashian Kouples. When the sources started saying earlier this week that they were on a break, it didn’t necessarily seem like things were over for good. But then. On Tuesday night, Kylie was spotted hanging out with none other than her ex, Tyga. To help express my unbiased journalistic take on this development, I’m going to employ the help of a gif: Kylie, WHY? Personally, I’m not sad about her breaking up with Travis Scott, as long as they can still do whatever is best …

5 Ugly Fall Trends To Skip And What To Wear Instead | Betches

1. Capes I feel like every couple of years this trend comes around and, in the least shocking thing ever, I hate it even more. It’s not only impractical, it’s also ridiculous looking. In my humble-yet-judgy opinion, fashion capes are on the same spectrum as fashion ponchos. And let me clarify something for you all: ponchos are for the rain, and capes are for superheroes. If you’re gonna be a hero, be the kind that doesn’t wear capes. Instead of the costume-y cape trend, opt for a more effortlessly cool and trendy extra-long duster. 2. Shakespearian Ruffle Collars I’m sorry, but no one can pull of this trend. Even Shakespeare himself looked like a straight clown in his ruffled collar. …

No, Zombie-ing Is Not The New Dating Trend | Betches

It’s no secret that people, especially millennials, suck at dating. I’m not a Baby Boomer, and while I can certainly acknowledge that people have always done sh*tty things to each other (I’m currently reading a book about women in the 1950s-70s who would get pregnant and abandoned by their boyfriends, so they’d get sent to a home for unwed mothers—it’s called The Girl In The Letter, in case you’re interested), I feel like the more into our technology we get, the more inventive and evasive we get with our sh*ttiness. Whereas in previous generations, you would likely run the risk of bumping into the person you went on one date with and never spoke to again, nowadays you can delete an app …

We Found Proof One Of The ‘Bachelor’ Contestants Is Only There For Fame | Betches

During a deep dive into the new Bachelor contestants, most of whom have deactivated their social media accounts/online presence in general, one white-toothed, fake-lashed, soon-to-be fit tea dealer stood high above the rest, and proved my theory that the first generation of people who spent their lives aspiring to be on The Bachelor have arrived. Enter: Mykenna Dorn, from Langely, British Columbia. At a mere 22 years old, Mykenna has, in theory, been watching The Bachelor franchise since she only five years old, and very clearly has been hoping for a long time to be a member of Bachelor Nation. A simple Google search of her first name and hometown brought me to a lackluster LinkedIn profile with no photos, no …

Chill Like The Weather: Weekend Horoscopes September 6-8 | Betches

As Hurricane Dorian bashes the southeast (and my in-laws —hope y’all got enough water, fam), I’m wondering if our horoscopes foretold nature’s fury. I guess we can interpret things pretty much however we want though, right? Totes. That was deep! Anyway, it’s still Virgo season, and it’s almost time for us to hide our tired summer bods under adorable scarves and sweaters, so get ready. Libra Get your OM on, Libra. Start the weekend off with some guided meditation, or just some goddamn peace and quiet, and a good cup of coffee. Jupiter is pushing you to communicate, so a brunch out with friends that are good listeners could be super beneficial. Sagittarius Sweatpants on repeat, Sagittarius. You’ve had kind …

Does Anyone Actually Have Sex On Their Wedding Night? | Betches

We’ve all seen the stereotypical depiction of wedding night sex on TV and in the movies—the groom carries his bride across the threshold into a hotel room that looks like Valentine’s Day threw up, and the couple proceeds to have a panel of experts my married friends to find out. Although wedding night sex sounds great in theory, the majority of couples don’t do the deed on their wedding night: one survey found that 48% of couples actually had sex on the night of their wedding, and in my own informal survey of my married friends, only one-third reported having wedding night sex. This isn’t very surprising when you consider the wedding day in its entirety. In most cases, you’re …

Look, I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again but I AM IN YOUR DMS HELLO good guys never finish first with this godforsaken franchise. You hate to see it. Meanwhile, Kristina and Tayshia discuss their relationship statuses. They both aren’t that into their romantic prospects thus far: Tayshia with JPJ and Kristina with that sand dune. Kristina declares that Tayshia should just date Derek because, let’s face it, JPJ has that hair so he’ll be fine. Tayshia agrees so fast that it’s almost as if this storyline was preordained by production or something. It’s crazy! Okay, I don’t think we’ve been giving Tayshia enough credit for how manipulative she can be. She tells JPJ that she wants to see …

Miley Is Shading TF Out Of Liam In Her New Song Betches

Every traumatic breakup deserves an equally traumatic breakup song, and Miley Cyrus really came through today. With no advance promo, she released a new track last night, and even a 5-year-old from outer space could tell you exactly what it’s about. We’ve spent all week trying to analyze posts and rumors for clues about the breakup, but Miley is giving it right to us. Let’s dive into the new song, and why it matters. The song is called “Slide Away,” which immediately conjures an image of two people falling out of love with each other, or what you tell creepy guys in your DMs. Miley and Liam have a long history together, so this really feels like the end of …

Well, That Was Stressful: ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Finale Recap Betches

Alright everyone, here we are. The finale of season 3 of The Handmaid’s Tale. If you’ve been following these recaps, you know that I’ve found the quality of this season to be…mixed. The first half of the season seemed fairly aimless, and the whole show has suffered from the fact that the intense rules they set up for the world of season one just can’t hold three seasons in. For one, June should have been hanged like, 10 times by now. For another, you can’t make me like the Waterfords. You just can’t. You especially can’t make me give two f*cks about their romantic Canadian road trip one episode after they forced June and Commander Z to have sex in front …
