Dear Wendy: “I Crashed At My Friend’s Pad For 5 Months And Now She Won’t Talk To Me”

For the last five months I lived with a good friend and her boyfriend while I finished school. They were kind enough to let me crash with them and I’m so thankful they did. However, now that I’m moved out I feel like our friendship is over. I’ve heard through mutual friends that she complained about me being messy, ignoring her, and being awful to live with. She would routinely send me tweets and Facebook messages detailing the various things I did that annoyed her (i.e., snore, nap, have a glass in my room). The thing is, I was always clean. I VERY rarely left a dish unwashed, I cleaned the bathroom, emptied the dishwasher … I’m just at a loss as to why she would stop talking to me. I did really stick to myself while I lived there and didn’t hang out with her and her boyfriend. I didn’t want to invade their space but she never made me feel anything other than it was best to stay away from them. So I did. I’m at the point now where I’ve been evaluating our whole friendship and she really hasn’t been a great friend over the years. But I’m still bothered that somehow she has completely stopped talking to me. Should I contact her to find out why? Or should I just let this die and get over it? We have lots of mutual friends so I don’t want things to be awkward if we no longer talk. I just don’t know where to go from here. — Baffled

Who Loves Who More In Your Relationship?

If you believe in romantic comedies, the ideal outcome of any romantic relationship is that both partners love each other equally. But is that always true in real life? Sure, it may be the case some of the time, but the fact of the matter is that relationships are often uneven or unequal when it comes to love. Especially at the start of a relationship, it’s not uncommon for one partner to be more enamored of the other. Maybe the guy is salivating after the girl like a hungry dog, while she could care less. Or we’ve all heard girlfriends whining about the guy they’re madly in love with — who never calls. I once saw a movie in which an older couple said the reason they never got divorced is because they never fell out of love at the same time. That’s an interesting twist — and suggests that love isn’t always a two-way street, but more like a freeway designed by a crackhead. You never know where it’s going to twist and turn. Is your relationship “equal” when it comes to love? Is it better to love the other person more or for the other person to love you more? Or is love too weird, complicated, and abstract to even be comprehended? Keep reading »

Kelly Osbourne’s Ex Was A Piece Of Doo Doo

“Luke Worrall is the biggest piece of s**t, he has been trying to get back with me, I only came home for Xmas to see him. Meanwhile, he has been f**king hundreds of girls … behind my back. All he did was use me. All girls, beware of @Luke_worral he is a using C**t! He used me for my money and a free ride. He is lucky I am not spilling the whole truth about what he did! He is the worst thing that ever happened to me.

Kelly Osbourne sends holiday wishes to her ex-fiance. Does this mean he didn’t get a Christmas present from her? Sounds like Luke was a very bad boy this year. [US Weekly] Keep reading »

Dater X: How The Heck Have My Parents Been Married For 40 Years?

For most single women out there, New Year’s Eve is a big deal. On December 31st, we’ll get all dolled up—preferably in sequins and heavy eyeliner—and hit the town in our 2011 New Year’s Eve glasses. (Question: How exactly are those going to work?) It’s one of the few nights a year where debaucherous drinking is not only condoned, but encouraged, and where grabbing a random stranger for a makeout session is not only okay, but tradition. The next morning, as we nurse our hangovers, we’ll have the satisfaction of standing up, wiping off the dirt of the past year, and jumping feet first into a new one—a fresh 365 days in which every possibility is open.

Yes, kiss or not, New Year’s Eve should be a great night. But for me, January 2nd will be a much bigger day. See, it’s my parents’ anniversary. As much as I think about it, I still can’t seem to wrap my head around the idea that, in less than a week, my parents will have been husband and wife for 40 freaking years. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I Don’t Like My Boyfriend’s Christmas Gift”

My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other about a year now. For Christmas he gave me a beautiful pearl necklace, which I appreciated very much; I understand the effort that he put in to picking it out for me. My birthday is coming up soon and he mentioned getting me a different color pearl necklace. I don’t want to seem like I’m not grateful, because I am, but I never wear jewelry and am not really a fan of pearls. Is there any way that I can hint to him that I don’t want him to buy me pearls (or really any jewelry for that matter) without hurting his feelings? I feel bad that he is spending so much money on something that I really don’t like or need. I plan on wearing this necklace to make sure he knows I appreciate it. Should I just act like I like it and let him buy me another or is there some way I can let him know that pearls just aren’t my thing? — Present Tense
