Dear Wendy: “Is 25 Too Old For A Delicious High School Relationship?”

My new boyfriend and I have been "together" for about a month now, but I'm not sure if we have any business dating each other. I'm a single mother and my daughter and I live with my mom. I hate it but I can't do much else right now unless I decide to put myself…

Stir Things Up With These Peppermint Cocktail Stirrers

Angelina Jolie On How She And Johnny Depp Are Alike

"It turns out we are both a bit reclusive. That’s why our paths had never crossed – neither of us attends many parties or goes out very much. Neither of us seems to take ourselves too seriously. And maybe there’s something about being in a place in your life where your family is so central…

Dear Wendy: “Should I MOA?”

I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, the last three months of which have been long distance as I had to move for grad school. We only live three hours apart, so we still get to see each other a couple times a month. For most of the last three…
