Let's preface this by letting you know this is a not-very-scientific poll from dating site WhatsYourPrice.com. It certainly doesn’t represent all the great single dads out there.

I doubt any of you would be surprised to hear that women with more sexual partners are judged more harshly by the general population. But to hear that women with more sexual partners still harshly judge other women with more sexual partners? Yeah, we're surprised. So surprised, in fact, that one anonymous Glamour team member exclaimed, "I'm shocked I had friends in college."

According to a study from Cornell University, ladies really hate being friends with other ladies they consider to be promiscuous. When 751 young men and women were asked to rate a description of a man or woman for traits like likability, morality and emotional stability, guess what affected their opinions? Yep, the number of reported sex partners.

And lest you think they're just overcompensating to prove meeting online totally works, you guys, I swear, not only did couples who met on the Internet report higher rates of satisfaction, they also were actually less likely to separate or divorce.

Professional engagement and wedding photographers the Youngrens share their tips for taking amazing engagement photos.

By HerCampus.com Jun 6, 2013 7:16PM
Erin and Jeff Youngren are a husband-and-wife team based out of San Diego, Calif., that photographs weddings and engagements all over the country. Jeff shot his first wedding back in 2005 when he was working as a scientist doing cancer research in the biotech industry (yes, he wore a lab coat and everything!), and he immediately fell in love with weddings.
Erin picked up a camera shortly after the two got married in 2006, and not long after, they knew that photography was what they wanted to do with their lives.
