New Parents Kiss Romance Good-Bye

As I've mentioned before, I'm beginning to think seriously about trying to make a baby soon-ish (with my husband's help, of course). Recently, I made a "cradle list," a list of things I'd like to do and accomplish before having a kid (I'm crossing off one of the items this weekend when I make my…

What A Frisky Dolphin!

TGIF, everyone! What Friday is complete without a funny animal video? Today's video is especially apropos for us because it features a dolphin who is so very frisky. I mean, my goodness, I haven't seen moves likes his (or if it a "her"? Hmm...) since, well, never mind that — just watch the clip! [via…

Share Your DIY Gift Ideas!

With the holidays right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about gifts. Unless you're my mom, in which case you started thinking about this year's holiday gifts on December 26th of last year. But for the rest of us, mid-to-late November is a sane time to get the ball rolling. And if you…

Dear Wendy: “How Do I Mention My Dad’s Recent Death On A First Date?”

I took a break from the online dating pool for about four months because my dad was in the final stages of cancer. He passed away in July, and I've been back in the online dating waters for a month or so now and am having trouble deciding what's appropriate to share about my dad'…

Magnetic Lingerie Makes Undressing A Snap

Usually before they graduate from high school — or at least college — most people have figured out how to unhook a bra without too much hassle. But for the finger fumblers out there, a French lingerie company has designed some bras that even a toddler could tear off a woman in a matter of…

Dear Wendy: “My New Husband Refuses To Sleep With Me”

I am a young woman in my mid-20s. I started dating my husband when I was 18. We were in a long-distance relationship, but decided to get married this year, and I left the U.S. to be with him. Before we were married, we had a great sex life. Now that I am here, he…

20 Things Couples Should Do Before They Get Married

In the last two weeks, we've discussed 20 things couples should do before they move in together as well as 20 things they should do after they move in together.

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Abandoned Me. Should I Move On?

I'm 31 and had been in a very loving, fun, and supportive relationship with my guy for almost two years and living together for a little over a year. He started talking about marriage and getting engaged about a year into our relationship, and I was so excited at the prospect of being his partner…

What Your Email Sign-Off Says About You

Do you have a standard email sign-off you use like "Thanks," "Cheers," or "Best"? Do you change your sign-offs for business emails? I tend to stick with the ol' XOXO or my first initial (or both) in my personal emails with close friends and use "Thanks" or very occasionally "Cheers" in my business emails. I…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Hangs Out With ‘Mean Girls'”

A couple months ago I entered into a relationship with an awesome guy whom I work with (not necessarily the best call, but what can you do!). So far, things have been pretty good. We have the ability to keep it professional at work and we share the same sense of humor, etc.. The problem…

Dear Wendy: “When’s The Best Time To Discuss STDs?”

After getting dumped by my boyfriend of five years (and some time to get over that), I've recently re-entered the dating world. So far it's a lot like I remember it to be; however, the only difference is that this time I'm not a virgin, and neither are most of the people I've been out…

Dear Wendy: “My Girlfriend Lets Her Friends Take Advantage Of Her”

I’ve been with my girlfriend for about two and a half years. The one problem I have is with my girlfriend’s friends and how they handle money. From everything I know, everyone is on pretty similar pay levels, but her friends always seem to be short on cash when they do stuff together. My girlfriend…

50 Things To Do With Your Extra Hour This Weekend

Sad news, everyone: this is the weekend we “fall back,” as Daylight Savings Time ends and months of dreary cold and sunless days begin. Of course, the perky glass-half-full types are always quick to point out how we gain an extra hour when DST ends, like that somehow makes up for the endless evenings of…

Dear Wendy: “My Guy Friend Wants To Sleep With Me”

It’s time again for “Shortcuts.” For every question, I’ll give my advice in three sentences or less, because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss guy friend…

Check Out The Johnny Cash Project

Even if you aren't a Johnny Cash fan — wait, you aren't? Why not?! — you can still appreciate The Johnny Cash Project, an amazing "crowd-sourced music video" for Cash's posthumous recording of "Ain't No Grave."

My boyfriend and I have been dating for nine months, and for this whole period, his mother, who lives several states away, has been very sick with cancer. Because this is such a difficult situation for him, I have tried to be understanding when things do not go my way. (I was not always selfle…
