Love & Sex

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… READ MORE »


holiday gift guide

One of our favorite things to do during the holidays is to take things that are already awesome — like chocolate brownies, kitty cats, and cocktails, for example — and make them even more awesome, usually by adding some marshmallows or mint chips and maybe a cute Christmas sweater to the former two. For the… READ MORE »


Parenting

If you’re in the middle of your breakfast (or lunch), you may want to bookmark this article and come back to it later. That’s because we’re going to talk about breastfeeding, which is a beautiful and natural thing, to be sure, but when it’s a 6-year-old who’s suckling at momma’s boob? Hmm, not so much. READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Yesterday, I received a letter from a reader who says she has “terrible taste in boyfriends” and gets quickly attached to them and tends to “gloss over any bad attributes they might demonstrate that could represent negative qualities to come.” So, she asked if there were any “lesser known, more subtle relationship red flags” that… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

I recently moved out of the country, and am in the process of making new friends. Every so often a new male stranger will strike up conversation with me. Since I’m new here and could use as many friends as possible, I’m always receptive and try to be engaging. However, it always reaches the point… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Real World Weary,” a recent college grad who found herself underemployed and with a suddenly depleted social circle… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

I’m in school in the UK and my wonderful boyfriend is in school in Michigan. I’m coming to stay with him for a couple weeks over New Year’s (one week in the middle, when he’s in classes, I’ll go to see my parents in NC), but there’s a problem: he wants to go to NYC… READ MORE »


Celebs

“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… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

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… READ MORE »

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today.

Love & Sex

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 falling for… READ MORE »

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today.

We are less than three weeks away from the shortest day of the year and if you’re anything like me, you’re starting to feel the effects of the winter blues — or Seasonal Affective Disorder — begin to set in. Sure, we have a little distraction with the holidays, but come January if we haven’t… READ MORE »


holiday gift guide

My boyfriend asked me last night if we/he should get my parents and sister each a gift for Christmas. This is our first Christmas as a couple and the first serious boyfriend I had around the holidays. He has already met my parents and sister and they all like each other. Should he get them… READ MORE »

This holiday season, there’s a pretty good chance a few of us may find ourselves nursing a hangover or two — not that I’m going to point any fingers (cough-Amelia-cough-me-cough-pretty-much-the-whole-Frisky-staff-cough-cough). And if your hangover is the result of a party you’ve thrown, probably the last thing you want to take care of the morning after… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

About six months ago, I met this guy, Alex, who I thought was perfect. He is about to graduate law school, he is unbelievably kind, respectful and empathetic, and also the sex is great. But I have slowly begun to realize that Alex is very safe — meaning he’s not spontaneous and not very funny… READ MORE »

The ’90s was a big time in my life. When they started, I was a freshman in high school and when the final day of the decade rolled around, I was a college graduate trying to find my place in the “real world.” Needless to say, the era holds a special place in my heart… READ MORE »
