Could You Find True Love With A Columbia Student? DateMySchool Thinks So

Of all the arbitrary ways online dating sites seek to play matchmaker — pairing together Jews, bookworms, music fans, French bikers, or female inmates — the premise of DateMySchool.com is no better or worse. DateMySchool claims to “facilitate meeting of students from different departments within the same school and between different universities” by only allowing singles to join through their verified school emails.

“There was at time in my life where all I wanted was a relationship and I thought that was the most important thing. Is it weird that I’m now the single one? It’s definitely a change for me. I have always been the one in a relationship. I like that role, I want that best friend partnership.”

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Abandoned Me. Should I Move On?

I’m 31 and had been in a very loving, fun, and supportive relationship with my guy for almost two years and living together for a little over a year. He started talking about marriage and getting engaged about a year into our relationship, and I was so excited at the prospect of being his partner for life. But months passed by, and it became clear that he was homesick for his family. Even though they’re only a two-hour plane ride away, he had been depressed for the last six months about being away from home, and told me that if we married, it would mean he was choosing to never live in the same town as his family again. I told him I’d be happy as long as we were together, but he kept saying “I don’t think you’ll be happy there.” About a week ago when I came home from work, I found that he had moved out of the apartment we shared and had driven back to his home town to be with his family, and merely left a note! What kind of person does that sort of thing? To make matters worse, he called me once he arrived at his hometown and said (while sobbing uncontrollably) he wasn’t ready to break up and wanted a month to think about things. Part of me loves him so much that I want to give him the time he asked for. The rational side of me says, “This jerk abandoned you. Even if he wanted to work things out, are you really going to let him do this to you again?” I’m so torn. Should I just end it now and move on? — Shocked and Awed

The 10 Types Of Emotional Cripples

Let’s face it — we’ve all got issues and sometimes need multiple attempts to surmount emotional obstacles. But some of us are better at dealing with them than others and, we would argue, women are better at working through emotional problems than men. In the last few years of dating, we’ve come across 10 types of guys we call “emotional cripples,” guys who may otherwise be awesome, but for some reason or another are stuck in emotional wheelchairs and the women in their lives are put in the position of either pushing them around or yelling “Get up and walk!” before heading out the door. Usually, these emotional ailments aren’t obvious right away — in the first few weeks and months of dating, as our best selves are presented, we’ve found ourselves thinking, Finally, a guy who isn’t crippled emotionally! But at some point, the curtain is pulled back just like in the “Wizard of Oz” and, yup, there’s the f**king wheelchair again.
