Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I’m a lesbian and there’s a girl I’ve been hanging out with on a daily basis for a while now whom I’m interested in. Until this summer, we were both in relationships, but at the beginning of this school year, upon finding out I was single, she immediately said, “We should date!” Since then, I’ve been getting really mixed signals from her (we’ve drunkenly made out twice, and kissed a few times sober, but with a lot of platonic hanging out in between). She’s told me that she’s conflicted and although she really likes me, she doesn’t want to hurt me because she isn’t over her ex. Honestly, I had expected this, and told her that if she needs some more time, I’d wait (to which I got no real response). I’m more into her than I’ve ever been into anyone in my life, so I’m willing to wait, but I feel sort of stupid and it bothers me that I’ve turned down other offers in the meantime. She told me before that it took her almost a year to get over her last ex, so I don’t know if I want to wait THAT long, but if I lose my chance with her, I know that’s a regret I’ll carry around for a long time. What should I do? — Tired of Waiting
Moms are often the keepers’ of family wisdom, the family archivists and key family storytellers. Moms are also often chock-full of secrets. That’s why you should try and take advantage of your mother’s sage words and ask her everything you can.
“All of a sudden I hear WHOA, WHOA! And I said is there anything on it? What’s wrong? They said they never saw anyone as hairy as [me] in their entire life!”

Usually we read Elle magazine’s advice column “Ask E. Jean” with a sense of bemused horror. We imagine E. Jean sitting poolside sipping a Mai Tai, systematically rattling off terrible, cliche, and gender-stereotyped advice to a beleaguered assistant who’s forced to type up every word. You see, the women who write into E. Jean often have similar problems — the spark in their relationship has died, their husbands or boyfriends are now distant or disinterested. And without fail, E. Jean always recommends the same thing — “Oh honey, just whip up a steak dinner, put on some sexy lingerie and seduce your man back into the relationship.” In E. Jean’s world, we’re all just a sexy negligee away from solving all our relationship woes.
