Dear Wendy Updates: “Insecure Mess” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Insecure Mess” who wrote in a year ago about feeling like she didn’t deserve her boyfriend of one year because he was so normal while she had so many issues. “I’m constantly thinking that he doesn’t love me, isn’t attracted to me, and is just dating me until he finds someone better. My boyfriend has never given me any reason to feel this way; therefore, I don’t think these feelings are rational at all,” she wrote. After the jump, find out how she’s doing today and get some info that may be of value to you too. Keep reading »

“Best” Pickup Lines Revealed

The dating site badoo.com studied the pickup lines in nearly 200,000 online dating introductions and discovered what lines are most successful for women of different nationalities. If a woman is British, a man is apparently better off complimenting her legs, while Italian, French, American and Brazilian women want to be told they “dress beautifully.” Spanish and South American ladies like to have their hair praised, while German and Canadian gals appreciate compliments about their skin. Oddly, the line that works best on Dutch and Portuguese women? “You have beautiful ears.” Seriously? I’d have put that one in the camp of worst pickup lines, for sure! The line that was found to get the most response from women as a whole: “You have beautiful lips.” Huh, if that was a guy’s opening line to me before we’d even met face-to-face, there would never be a first date.

Amy Adams Isn’t In A Rush To Lose The Baby Weight

“Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body — meaning that it wasn’t put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit. I was like, ‘Look, I can carry a baby! I’m gaining weight right, everything is going well.’ And I’ve had that relationship ever since.”

– Amy Adams, Golden Globe-nominee for her role in “The Fighter,” is not tussling with the scale after giving birth to baby Aviana a few months ago. With every magazine ever touting “celebs who lost the baby weight in five minutes!” I find her perspective to be so refreshing. [People] Keep reading »

What’s Your Personal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”?

We were thrilled beyond words to learn that the Senate voted to repeal the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which prevented gays from openly serving in the military. The Senate voted in favor of the repeal 65 to 31, and now it will go before President Obama to be signed into law. Said Obama, “Making this change will only underscore the professionalism of our troops as the best led and best trained fighting force the world has ever known. It is time to allow gay and lesbian Americans to serve their country openly. No longer will many thousands more be asked to live a lie in order to serve the country they love.”

And now, we can take the idea of “don’t ask, don’t tell” a little less seriously. After all, there are plenty of things we think actually deserve being put into this category. Liiiike telling us about how wasted you got last night. Or the terrible sex you had with somebody else’s boyfriend. And especially talking about the explosive diarrhea you had this morning after breakfast. So, tell us: what’s on your personal “don’t ask, don’t tell” list? Keep reading »

“My Strange Addiction” Is … Really Strange

My friend Rose has a saying: “You like what you like.” It means: don’t beat yourself up for what you’re into. But what if what you like is eating toilet paper? Or sucking down laundry detergent? This new show on TLC, “My Strange Addiction,” chronicles just that. Maybe we should reconsider Rose’s words. [Warming Glow] Keep reading »
