Guys

There are times it’s obvious when a man is lying. Like when he opens his mouth. Just kidding! We’re not that bitter (typically). But seriously, there are times in some relationships when you wonder if he really was at his buddy Jim’s house playing poker until 3:30 a.m. Or if that woman Mindy with the… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

You know that feeling when you first see someone and you’re not only drawn to him, but you’ve just got to have him?

You want all of him — physically, emotionally and intellectually. That’s how he and I were. “He” seemed perfect for me — 10 years older, mature, confident, established (and tall!). We… READ MORE »

Summer’s tough, guys. There are so many weddings and birthday parties and barbecues filled with cake and buffets and beer and chicken wings. We’ve already told you — we’re ladies who eat. Depriving ourselves of our favorites (ice cream and, again, CHICKEN WINGS!) wasn’t going to cut it, so we’re learning to balance our sometimes-not-ideal… READ MORE »

If you’re single and looking to commiserate about your fate, do we have a book for you. Author Kristen McGuiness was on “The Today Show yesterday talking about 51 Dates / 50 Weeks: The Magical Adventures of a Single Life.

Then Chelsea Handler tweeted about how much she loved it, but that’s not what… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

I’m 24 and finally had a one-night stand. I didn’t bother leaving my number or any contact information (or even my name) in the morning for fear of coming off as clingy or naïve. But I accidentally left a couple of accessories at his place, and now I have no way to get in touch.READ MORE »

What’s a good “number” for a girl at age 21/25/30/35. What about a guy? What are the averages?

People ask me this kind of question a lot, and I’ll be honest with you: I don’t get it. Read more … … READ MORE »

I’ve learned a lot over the course of writing this column. Readers don’t care for wedding critiques. Also, if you want to generate a ton of comments, write an impassioned polemic against open-toed sandal-boots and vodka tonics. Interweb columns sure are strange!

My editor, when not worshiping Cthulu or excising all of my best… READ MORE »

Will a doctor be straight with me — does pulling out work?

First, let’s be clear about what you’re trying to prevent here. If you’re looking to prevent sexually transmitted infections (STI), then stick to a condom (and keep it on the whole time), because pulling out is NOT going to provide protection against… READ MORE »

Yesterday I received the same message via email, text, tweet and wall post no fewer than a dozen times:

“I’m sure you’ve already seen this, but …”

The “this” was Robin Marantz Henig’s hefty New York Times article about the state of today’s 20-somethings — an extensive assessment of the way my generation… READ MORE »

At one point in her life — when she owned a two-bedroom condo, two cars, and enough wedding china to serve two dozen people gazpacho at the same time — Tammy Strobel, 31, asked herself if all that “stuff” actually made her and her husband, Logan, happy.

Then, she gave it all away. READ MORE »

Lisa Linehan, 35, is getting married on February 15, 2011.

Most of the wedding’s details are already set — she’s picked out the venue, chosen a DJ, and narrowed her gown possibilities to four lucky finalists. There’s just one thing missing: the husband-to-be.

Lisa, a singer-songwriter, has neither a fiance nor a long-term… READ MORE »

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about whale semen, it’s that if you Tweet about it, you get … crickets.

“HAHA, ASSIGNED TO CONDITION MY HAIR WITH WHALE SEMEN!” I wrote to my unwitting public (of, like, 140 followers).

Nothing. No one wants to hear about that. But they should! Because whale sperm… READ MORE »
