Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Abandoned Me. Should I Move On?

I’m 31 and had been in a very loving, fun, and supportive relationship with my guy for almost two years and living together for a little over a year. He started talking about marriage and getting engaged about a year into our relationship, and I was so excited at the prospect of being his partner for life. But months passed by, and it became clear that he was homesick for his family. Even though they’re only a two-hour plane ride away, he had been depressed for the last six months about being away from home, and told me that if we married, it would mean he was choosing to never live in the same town as his family again. I told him I’d be happy as long as we were together, but he kept saying “I don’t think you’ll be happy there.” About a week ago when I came home from work, I found that he had moved out of the apartment we shared and had driven back to his home town to be with his family, and merely left a note! What kind of person does that sort of thing? To make matters worse, he called me once he arrived at his hometown and said (while sobbing uncontrollably) he wasn’t ready to break up and wanted a month to think about things. Part of me loves him so much that I want to give him the time he asked for. The rational side of me says, “This jerk abandoned you. Even if he wanted to work things out, are you really going to let him do this to you again?” I’m so torn. Should I just end it now and move on? — Shocked and Awed

Betty Draper’s Hair Dryer

Have you ever noticed that a) travel hair dryers are sometimes more expensive than regular blow dryers (why?) and that b) they’re sometimes uglier? It’s not too often when packing our bags for a fun trip (which in itself can be pretty fun) that we get excited about tucking in our travel dryer. Now this has all changed thanks to this adorable miniature-sized tool with vintage-inspired graphics (so very Betty Draper). Added bonus: a cute travel case!

Confessions Of A Male Orgasm Faker

Over at the Village Voice‘s Runnin’ Scared blog, Foster Kamer has a pretty amusing interview with a guy who’s faked his orgasms. Men fake orgasms, too? Yup.

I Lost 20 Pounds And I Feel Fine

While, as a commenter recently noted, I am not a “TMI blogger,” I have occasionally blogged about some of my, er, weight issues over the last few months here at The Frisky. Back at the end of May, I wrote a post about how I was fatter than I’d ever been in my life. I asked for your help in getting started exercising, and you gave me some great tips. By early July, I was able to buy my first pair of skinny jeans. By the end of July, I figured I’d lost about 10 pounds. Now I think I’ve lost a total of about 20 pounds since I started. (I don’t have a scale, so I’m estimating.) After the jump, here’s what I learned. Keep reading »
