Do You Have A Signature Look?

This morning, as I was putting on my makeup, I felt a little sad. What was once my signature look is no more. I used to have really thick, long hair, and it was my favorite accessory. Then I stupidly volunteered to be a hair model, and had all of my hair chopped off. I didn’t mean for it to happen — but now I’m dealing with growing back eight inches of hair that was mercilessly taken away from me.

My hair was my signature look, but I’ve had others in the past — like the horrible two-year period in college when I thought wearing dresses over flared jeans was a good idea. It may make me cringe now, but that was my thing back then. For Lady Gaga, it’s not wearing pants (and generally dressing like a cuckoo). For Katy Perry, it’s ’50s-inspired glam. Do you have a signature style or must-have accessory that really says to the world “This Is Me”? Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Why I Forgave My Friend For Stealing From Me

There I was in the grocery, pressing the ends of a cantaloupe and sniffing it, trying to decide if it was ripe. Across the produce section, I spotted my landlord. I waved, a normal courtesy I extended the two times a year I happened upon him in real life. He left his cart, and came rushing towards me. As he came closer, I realized he was mad. “Why haven’t you paid your rent in four months?” he yelled.

I felt adrenaline surge through my body. What was he talking about? I always paid my rent. Never so much as a day late. Every month, a week before it was due, I wrote a check to my roommate and best friend, Leah*. Keep reading »

Snooki And J-Woww To Be Real-Life Roomies

“We are moving in together, though. That is a guarantee. [Snooki] is an awesome roommate. [We] lived together three times and not have any arguments … we can make it work … She wants to get out of her house. I no longer like my house, so what better thing to do than move in together?”

J-Woww reveals that, while she may have turned down an offer to appear in Playboy, she and her “Jersey Shore” BFF, Snooki, will be becoming roommates in real life. Awww, so sweet. I imagine they’ll be looking for a phat crib, complete with hot tub. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

In China, College Girls Find Prostitution A Shortcut To Success

College students need to support themselves somehow. And in China, it’s becoming increasingly popular to make a living selling your body. Prostitution in China is on the rise — particularly among college students — and girls get paid not on a nightly basis, but a yearly fee.

Annual fees start around $5,000 for more homely girls, while the pretty girls — the ones who usually attend drama school — garner the most attention, and are the most expensive. Those girls can make around $25,000 a year, but the price is high: Unprotected sex is rampant among college prostitutes, who don’t want to view the sex work they do as actual prostitution.

Dear Wendy: “I’m Afraid I’m Doomed To Be A Virgin Forever”

I’m in my early twenties and still a virgin, sort of by choice, but also because I was never asked out when I was younger. This past weekend, I reconnected with an old male friend who admitted to having liked me in the past, but the timing between us was off. We started talking about sex, and I turned him down, telling him I didn’t think I was ready, and I wasn’t in love with him. He was a great guy about it. But now, I think I’m regretting saying no. I’m starting to panic thinking that I just turned down my only chance, as it’s not like I’m beating away men with a stick. I have recently lost a lot of weight, so maybe things will change, but I still don’t seem to have guys running up to talk to me. Also, it’s the fact that I’m in my early twenties, and I’m feeling like I let time run away from me and I can’t stop it. The last thing I want is to become the female version of the 40-Year-Old Virgin. Do I call him and get it over with, as it were? Am I seriously doomed as I think I am because of my age? And how do I stop worrying so much? — Twenty-Something Virgin
