Dear Wendy: “I Could Never Date A Man Who’s Hired A Hooker”

As a feminist, I’m on the fence about prostitution being legalized. On one hand, I do not feel that is is right or OK for a woman to just sell her body for a price. On the other, if prostitution is legalized, women can be a lot safer and get off the streets, making it easier for cops to catch pimps and sex slave holders. Though I feel this way, I could not be with a man or woman who has ever bought somebody for sex, especially if that person was a woman. The thought of them thinking that it’s totally OK to go up and buy a human being as if she were an object just does not sit well with me. There is no other way around it, if I found out that someone went to a prostitute, it would be a dealbreaker. I know a guy who is a widower and goes to one and he says he just does not have time for a relationship so he goes to these legal places for sex. I can see his point, but I’d want a man who would treat women with the same respect and care that he would want the women in his life to have for men. Am I stupid for feeling this way? — Feminist Against Prostitution

Emma Watson Has Boy Troubles, Too

“I say to my friends, ‘Why hasn’t X called me? Why doesn’t anyone ever pursue me?’ They’re like, ‘Probably because they’re intimidated.’ It must be the fame wall … It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating … Sometimes, maybe because they feel intimidated, they feel they have to knock me down. They know perfectly well who I am, but they’ll ask me, ‘How are the Narnia films going?’ … [That's why] I’m single at the minute.”

Emma Watson talks about her dating issues. While I can’t relate to her particular dating problem (what is the “fame wall?”), it does feel good to know that all of us—no matter how hot, or rich, or famous, or adorably British—have them. Although, I imagine being able to treat yourself to a $5,000 shopping spree after being dissed by a guy would be a great comfort. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

The Love Guru: Having “The Talk” 101

In a terribly unglamorous moment, which involved a sleazy bathroom makeout session and a drunken cab ride home, I realized that I was done dating multiple guys, that I was ready to press my luck with the one and only Spontaneous Guy.

I walked into Dr. Diana’s office my chest puffed, ready to share the big news. I, dedicated love pupil, had survived this crazy dating experiment and come out victorious. I had accepted that love doesn’t mean someone has to get hurt, risked dating multiple guys at once even though it was way out of my comfort zone, learned how to focus on the positive when it comes to dating, and was rewarded with a worthy enough prince. Time for my Love Guru to give me my report card (straight A’s!) and send me on the way to my blissful, loving future. Keep reading »

25 Signs He’s Definitely Not “The One”

Spoofing infamous celebrity couples, Virgin Mobile manufactured their own celebrity duo, “Sparah” — that’s Spencer Falls and Sarah Carroll — and are looking to see just how recognizable the pair will become. Sparah recently shared their thoughts on dating and relationships with The Frisky, to which we responded with our own two cents. For example, how does Sarah think a woman can tell if a guy is “the one”? “He walks slow when you’re in heels — piggy-backs are a plus,” she told The Frisky. “Oh, and he waits a week or two before passing gas in front of you.”

Hmm, we’re all about dudes who are gentlemanly and don’t walk ahead of us, no matter our footwear, but we’ve never really thought about the appropriate time for a guy to start breaking wind. What we have thought a lot about is the signs that someone is not the one. Perhaps, Sarah should take some advice from us and check out the 25 Signs He’s Not The One, after the jump. You know, in case she needs a good reason to pretend to break up with Spencer for a story in Us Weekly or something. Keep reading »
