30-Day Breakup Guide Challenge: How I Made A Breakup Bible On Day 3

When I woke up today and saw that my task was to create a “Breakup Bible,” my first thought was not a happy one, especially after yesterday’s Facebook debacle. I officially went from having no relationship status (I’m one of those minimalists who never put much info on there anyway) to a tiny, sad heart next to my name with an announcement that I was single (which is actually not entirely true, but I’ll get to that later). I received a flood of condolence emails from people I haven’t talked to in years, which made me feel as if I am now entering a life stage where a black veil would be the only acceptable attire. It was taking more than my usual three cups of wake-me-up to bring me to my happy place, which, admittedly, these days, is occupied half the time by daydreaming about my ex and the other half by cheeseburgers.

Make Your “Breakup Bible”
Remember how you told all of your friends about your breakup? Chances are, you got a slew of voice mails, texts, and emails offering support or telling you what they really thought of that jerk. It might be hard to hear, but it’s going to come in handy. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “How Can I Ask For A Threesome?”

I’m in a wonderful relationship with a great man that I plan on marrying one day. I’m 20 and he’s 26, but it’s not our age difference that’s the problem. You see, I have this fantasy of being with more than one guy at once. I’m not a whore, slut, hooch or any of that business. It just turns me on to be treated like a sex toy. The only issue is I have no idea how to bring it up with my boyfriend, whom I’m madly in love with, and I’m not sure how he would react. It’s not that he’s not enough for me; I think he’s absolutely amazing in bed. I’m just super curious and would like to try once. How would you advise I bring this up with him? — Curious

Love Vandal: Sweet Embrace

Reader Shannon snapped this photo from her car (eyes on the road, please!): “I was driving to work today in San Francisco and snapped this pic from my car. It was a good way to start the morning! Sorry it’s a tiny bit blurred, but you can see it’s definitely a sweet embrace.”

Have you seen graffiti that’s kind of sweet (even if it is against the law)? Send your pic to tips@thefrisky.com. Keep reading »

Tell Your Friends
Update your Facebook status, send your besties a mass e-mail, call your pals one by one and give each a histrionic blow-by-blow — or do all three. Telling people makes it real and final, like ripping the Band-Aid off quickly, and you’re going to need your friends right now. Prepare to be amazed by how much people care for you. (Um, unlike your ex.) Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “Is It OK To Call Guys For A Second Date?”

I’m a woman on the cusp of her 30th birthday and have enjoyed my single status for over a year now, but am looking for a relationship again (I had three serious ones throughout my twenties). About a year ago, I joined an online dating site, and have had no shortage of first-dates, but very few second dates. Granted, I don’t always want a second date with every guy I go out with, but I’m baffled when my date seems to show genuine interest and then I never hear from him again. So my first question is this: do women really have something to lose if we go ahead and call after a date to take a man up on his offer? Several friends are insistent that calling after the first date makes a woman look desperate, end of story. I am not sure how many more blows I can take in this department — there’s always the nagging question of, “What if I had just called?” I’m also wondering if there’s some “secret” I’ve been oblivious to in the past year that will magically make me more successful in the dating world. I believe I’m a “catch” and I know all the first-date don’ts: don’t drink too much, don’t talk about your ex, don’t sleep with him or come on too strong, etc. Is there something else I should be (or not be) doing? — Tired of Being Single
