My Difficult Relatives And How I Will Deal With Them This Thanksgiving

Ah, Thanksgiving. When you’re a kid it’s all about the mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. When you’re an adult, it’s all about rude inquisitions from your nosy aunts and your dad getting horrifically, embarassingly wasted. I don’t know anything about stuffing a bird or making a perfect cranberry sauce. But I do know a thing or two about dealing with family, seeing as I have a huge, colorful one. Gather ’round, children, and take in my wisdom from awkward family holidays past! (Also, I’m a full-blooded WASP, so take my stiff-upper-lip swamp Yankee suggestions with a grain of salt. Maybe in other parts of the country, you solve problems differently!) Keep reading »

Study: Pretty Women Don’t Get Hired

Attractive women are getting the shorter end of the job stick, according to a new study out of Israel. Researchers at Ben-Gurion University tested the idea that more attractive people get more job opportunities. They sent out identical resumes with “average-looking” male and female headshots, “attractive” headshots, and no headshots to prospective employers. Attractive males got more callbacks than average-looking men, and — surprise, surprise! — attractive women got FEWER callbacks. The study argues that “female jealousy of attractive women in the workplace is a primary reason for the punishment of attractive women.” But we’re wondering if it’s something else — that those in power are intimidated by conventionally attractive women, not jealous of them, and anecdotal evidence seems to back this up. Either way, it’s a good thing that most places in the U.S. (sans Abercrombie & Fitch) don’t require headshots upon submitting your resume. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I Don’t Want To End Up Alone”

I’m a 21-year-old girl who can’t seem to find happiness. Don’t get me wrong; I love hanging out with my friends and having an active social life, but I just can’t seem to find someone who wants to be with me. I feel as if I’m worthless because any guy I’m remotely interested in would rather just be a friend, or wants to be with one of my friends. I have never had a boyfriend in my life, only close guy friends. I’m not the most physically fit, but I feel as though I have an amazing personality due to the fact that I have a big social network, and people usually love my company. I know it’s something that shouldn’t be rushed, but I’m getting to the point where giving up is my only option. I try to put myself out there but, but I feel as if because of my looks nobody wants to actually love me. My biggest fear is that I will end up alone for the rest of my life, and let down my family. I’m tired of being cupid, and only wish that somebody would realize I need a cupid too. — Lonely

Phew! Jennifer Grey Is The “Dancing With The Stars” Champion

Last night on “Dancing with the Stars,” the sanctity of the mirror ball trophy—not to mention the order of the universe—was restored. A champion was crowned and it was not, as many people had feared, Bristol Palin. Nope, the “DWTS” voters of America came to their senses and gave the win to Jennifer Grey, who turned in many a perfect 30-point performance during the season, despite being over 50 and having a slipped disc in her back. And we couldn’t be happier about this because Jennifer is, in two words, freaking awesome. After the jump, 10 reasons we love Jennifer. Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: I Do Not Suffer Dating Coaches Gladly

Breaking news: I am not a “dating coach.” Yes, I sort of give dating and relationship advice. I write about relationships and love and cupcakes and samurai for this site. I also dispense advice for other websites, and I’ve written for lady magazines, primarily because sleaze pays very well. But to answer a reader who e-mailed me, I am not, nor will I ever be, a “dating coach.” I hate the term “dating coach.” It suggests that love is a game to win. Love is not a game. It is a journey that requires courage. “Dating coaches” sell that love can be won; that it’s about touchdowns, and victory dances, and spiking a heart. But they sell that because if they sold the truth, they’d be out of business. Here’s the truth: love isn’t about scoring points for yourself. Love is intercepting your own pass, and running the ball in the opposite direction. Love is losing. Keep reading »
