Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s Relationship With His Sister Weirds Me Out!”

I’m 23 years old and have been in an honest, mature relationship with my amazing and sweet boyfriend for six months. We are very compatible and it’s likely that we’ll end up moving in together in the next year or so. A few weeks ago, I got to meet his sister, who is two years younger than us and the person he’s closest to in his family. Man, was I in for a surprise! Not only did they hug each other tightly for almost a full five minutes when we met her at the airport, but he constantly had his arm around her or was holding her hand (and sometimes mine, simultaneously). The “pet name” that he calls me turned out to be a variation on his nickname for her. He even called her by my nickname and me by hers several times. He honestly looked distraught when he had to choose which one of us to sit next to. It was strange because many of his flirtatious moves, like play wrestling, tickling, picking me up, etc. were also things that he did with her! It felt … bizarre.

David Beckham Isn’t Too Keen On His Daughter Harper Dating

“She’s got three brothers that will take her, three brothers that will eat with her and three brothers that will bring her back home to a dad waiting for her. So yeah, we’ll see. That’ll be interesting.”

David Beckham tells “Access Hollywood” the rules he’ll lay down for newborn daughter Harper Seven Beckham when she starts dating. Oh well, he’s got at least 14 to 16 more years to get used to the idea. Hopefully, when the time comes, he’ll be a touch less intimidating to potential suitors. [ONTD]

Girl Talk: I Was The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Most people have encountered a crazy ex-girlfriend in some form, a being to be pitied and scorned. It was frightening how easy it was to find myself, normally a level-headed, rational woman, turning into one. Keep reading »

7 Awkward Online Dating Scenarios You Failed To Consider

Love it, hate it, or feel meh about online dating, if you play the game, you may find yourself in some awkward scenarios you failed to consider. And when I say game, I mean “Magic: The Gathering”. Say for instance, that you meet someone online who just happens to be a blogger. When you go on a date with The Blogger, you reveal your status as the world champion of “Magic.” I suppose you had considered that The Blogger may write about the experience. But not in an completely crappy, privacy-busting way, mentioning your first and last name for all the world wide web to gawk at. My apologies to the man who found himself in this awkward scenario. Just for the record, Jon and I were born in the same town in the same year. I know this because his date also posted his Wikipedia page. Hey, I’ll bet our parents know each other! But I digress. After the jump, some more weird situations you might find yourself in if you dare to date online. Keep reading »

Adventures In Bad Marketing: Would You Trade A Date For A New Pair Of Shoes?

There is nothing at all creepy about trading yourself like so much chattel in exchange for a pretty pair of new shoes, right? Right. Good, because that’s exactly the big idea behind Chocolate Sole Lounge’s new “Get a Man and Get a Gorgeous Shoe” program.” Chocolate Sole Lounge is a direct marketer that offers women the chance to buy shoes during “shoe parties” thrown by their friends (Chocolate Sole Lounge direct sellers). The company’s cheeky tagline reads “Where Your Shoe Fetish Fits,” but it’s doubtful that they’d necessarily want their fetish to be confused with trading sexual favors for new pairs of shoes. Yes, how else can their “get a man” program be understood? As explained via press release: “Men will ditch their usual tactics of “flowers, dinner or drinks” and woo women by indulging in their shoe fetish instead. Men agree to personally select and buy a pair of shoes for the woman he connects with. And the special lady agrees to a meet up again, within 48 hours, wearing the shoes he bought her.”

So in this case, the implied monetary exchange for company thing that happens in traditional dating will be replaced by an explicit monetary exchange for company mandate. Sounds a little bit like shoe prostitution to us. [Chocolate Soul Lounge] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How I Stopped Falling For Guys Who Failed To Mention They Had Girlfriends

When I was in my late 20s, I had a crush on a guy I worked with. He was tall and preppy, and looked like he’d stepped out of a J. Crew catalog. Every Monday morning I’d skip down the aisle, lean on the wall of his cubicle, and ask him how his weekend was, and he’d tell me about the restaurant he went to or the movie he saw.

He loved music, and I thought I could love him, so I invited him to see my friend and her band rehearse one night. She was an incredible up-and-coming singer who had the same manager as Alicia Keys, and my crush was thrilled to get to go to her rehearsal.

Afterwards, we stopped at his apartment. I took my Joss Stone CD out of my knapsack. “I think you’ll like this,” I said, handing it to him. He put it in his stereo, turned up the music, and turned off the lights.
