Girl Talk: My Friend Crush Fell For Another Girl

When my guy friend recently became single, I saw a lot more of him. In fact, we were hanging out a lot and while sober. Seriously. We would just talk and the conversation was easy. So easy I was beginning to wonder if he was trying hard to get in my pants. I mean, he’s basically everything on paper I would want and my mom would love him, too. When does that magic ever happen?! He is manly, handsome, smart, and a good listener, but shy. Nagging in the back of my brain every time we hung out was this voice that kept saying, “Land this guy, you dumb slut!” Keep reading »

The Scarlet Bracelet

How would you feel about having your potty use at work monitored during your monthly menstrual cycle? In Norway, a workers union put together a shocking list of “tyrannical” bathroom monitoring practices, as Norwegian businesses seem to be overly concerned about losing productivity due to workers’ frequent trips to the restroom. One manager reportedly forced female employees to wear red bracelets while they had their periods to justify increased trips to the toilet. WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? Fortunately government officials were not cool with making women wear scarlet bracelets in the work place. “Women quite justifiably feel humiliated by being tagged in this way, so that all their colleagues are aware of this intimate detail of their private life. Toilet Codes relating to menstrual cycles are clear violations of privacy and is very insulting to the people concerned,” said Norway’s chief consumer ombudsman, Bjorn Erik Thon. Ya think?

Did Britney Spears’ Boyfriend Jason Trawick Beat Her Up?

Radar Online is reporting they have exclusive audio in which Britney Spears states that her agent-turned-boyfriend, Jason Trawick, beat her up, giving her a black eye. The story is simultaneously being told by Star magazine, which also claims Spears was pregnant with Trawick’s baby earlier this year. The source of the tape is Jason Alexander, Spears’ first husband, to whom she was married for 55 hours in 2004. When Alexander asks if Trawick proposed to her, Spears responds, “Before or after he beat on me?” Personally, I don’t think the tape sounds like Britney. What do you think? [Radar]

Update: Spears’ manager says the audio tape is “100 percent not [Britney].” Meanwhile, Radar and Star stand by the tape and the story. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s A Bore”

About six months ago, I met this guy, Alex, who I thought was perfect. He is about to graduate law school, he is unbelievably kind, respectful and empathetic, and also the sex is great. But I have slowly begun to realize that Alex is very safe — meaning he’s not spontaneous and not very funny – he’s sort of boring, really. Right around the time that I was realizing Alex’s true colors, I went on a trip to my childhood best friend Harry’s cabin in the woods. We ended up having so much fun and for the first time since we’ve been friends I’ve started to have feelings for him. Nothing romantic happened between Harry and me, but I’m not sure what I should do with my feelings. I feel very guilty being in a relationship with one person when I can’t stop thinking of my best friend. Should I tell both men how I’m feeling? I’m worried that if I tell Harry how I feel that I will lose his friendship, or that it will change things between us. And I’m worried that if I tell Alex he will resent me and think that I was playing a game with him. Please help me make sense of my mixed up emotions. — Between Two Men

Will You Read “LuckyKids” Magazine?

I don’t pay attention to the ads in Women’s Wear Daily often, but today I noticed an ad seeking advertisers for LuckyKids magazine. Now, I love Lucky, the women’s magazine about shopping, as much as the next style geek seeking relatable fashion (and I even still own the very first issue of Lucky), but I can’t for the life of me understand why Condé Nast is going to publish LuckyKids.
