We all have dodgy photos of our friends on our phones in embarrassing or damn near blackmail-worthy positions. But a survey of 1,500 people has shown that one-fourth of women say they’ve posted unflattering pic of their friends on Facebook on purpose. Yup, on purpose. The most common reason a “friend” posted a picture of her gal pal doing bong hits in the church parking lot is exactly what you think it would be: sweet, sweet revenge. So party carefully when there’s cameras around, especially if you’ve recently committed an act of treachery. Sigh. The older I get, the more aware I am the word “friend” is greatly overused.  [The Daily]

Happy National Best Friends Day! (No, really. It is!) When it comes to major life transitions and decisions about careers, romantic entanglements, sexual dilemmas, health, and possibly marriage or motherhood, who’s got your back, ladies? That’s right, your girlfriends. In our lives we can’t cast the perfect variety pack of girlfriends, as the creators of “Sex and the City” did – nor would we want to, as gradually getting to know each other is the best part of a relationship – though, if we’re lucky, we do have different kinds of friendships we’ve accumulated over the years to suit the very different aspects of our complex lives. There are eight types of friendships I’ve cultivated that have been essential to my growth as a person. Too bad all these ladies don’t live locally (because a posse would be so nice!), so that I could get them together at the Sunday brunch table, but I can keep them on speed dial. Keep reading »

When I’m really upset there is only one person I want to talk with: my mom.

“Mom?” I said, my voice wobbling. “Ashley got into med school.”

“That’s great!” Mom exclaimed. Like me, my mother has known Ashley since we met in kindergarten.

“Yes … but … she got in med school in Israel. She’s moving to Israel in July.”

“Good for her!” My mother didn’t understand what I was trying to tell her.

“Well, yes, it’s good she got into med school, but Mom, she is moving to ISRAEL in less than two months. Friggin’ Israel. Another one of my best friends is moving away. I should just move across the Atlantic Ocean at this point.”

“Oh.” Pause. “Maybe you’ll make some new friends?” Keep reading »

For the longest time, I have only had one guy friend. And I used to date him, in college. Which complicates things. It makes my husband Bear uncomfortable. It makes me uncomfortable, too. Not the him being my friend part. That’s fine. It happened naturally. We’re horrible gossips together.  But I wish I could erase our dating past. I shouldn’t have dated him. Even while I was dating him, I was hazily aware of that.

I am bad at guy friends. I have only had a few. Which makes me totally uncool, I know. Keep reading »

I use Facebook primarily for three reasons: To chat with my family members who live out of state, to share links of animals doing stupid cute things and occasionally, to stalk. I’m not talking about stalking exes, I’m not into that at all. I usually hide or unfriend them within moments of the breakup. I’m no masochist and looking at exes makes you feel like crap. I only engage in fun stalking. The kind that makes me feel good about myself. I like to creep on FB friends that I should probably unfriend. I just can’t because I enjoy following their every virtual move so much. After the jump, the Facebook friends you really should keep just for the hell of it. Keep reading »

How To Be Awkward: At The Bar

Being awkward is an art form honed over many weekends spent singing out-of-key karaoke and talking about people when they’re right behind you. Of course there are a variety of ways you can be awkward, and not all of them are created equal. Surely it’s worse to be the awkward girlfriend than it is to simply be the awkward girl in class, right? Not necessarily. While we’ll likely explore both of those scenarios in the future, today I’m going to teach you how to be the awkward girl at the bar. Because she’s everyone’s favorite. Duh. Read more …
