The Cosmo Girl's Guide to Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse

Because 1) you never know when it could happen, and 2) a Cosmo girl is always prepared.

If, like us at Cosmo, you have this hidden obsession over anything zombie-related (hellooo, World War Z!), then you’ll love this list we’ve compiled to get all you ass-kicking Cosmo chicks into fearless survival mode during an invasion of the walking dead.

Preferably one who oozes an “I’m hot, I’m independent, and I can make any survivor do whatever I want him to do” kind of charm.


7. Like Maggie in Walking Dead, find a safe place to MOMOL in the midst of the undead frenzy.
Kissing actually lowers the stress level cortisol, which—duh! You kinda need in such, er, trying times! Just be careful not to go down the Lori route and get yourself pregnant.

8. When going out on dates now, make sure to pick a guy who has the potential to be your Brad Pitt during World War Z.
Remember: Never settle for anything less! Let this be your mantra: “Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt.”

You wanna be with someone with Brad Pitt-level skills. Or Brad Pitt.
