Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I’m 24 and my boyfriend of two years is 25. When we began dating he told me he had slept with his long-term ex-girlfriend before we got together, and I told him that I had slept with my ex-boyfriend. After we had been having sex for a couple months, he confessed that he had actually been a virgin when he first slept with me, explaining that his ex wanted to wait until marriage. After the initial shock wore off, I understood he was embarrassed about it, and eventually forgave him for lying. However, now that things are getting serious, I’m worried that if we get married he will always regret not sleeping with someone other than me. I discussed my concerns with him, and he explained that he had plenty of opportunities to have sex before he met me, but he isn’t comfortable having one-night-stands, and wouldn’t have sex with someone who wasn’t his girlfriend. This negates the possibility of us breaking up for a short period of time so he can have his fun and come back to me, and means that I would have to break up with him and wait for him to find someone, build a relationship, have sex, and have the relationship fail (or maybe not!). I’m not willing to wait years for him to do all of this just so he can get another notch on his belt. Is it really possible he will be happy having the same partner his whole life? — Cherry Popper

But IKEA — and its loyal fans — probably didn’t expect that the brand would become so popular that it would become the catalyst for a number of websites and businesses. The spawn of IKEA, so to speak. Here are some of my favorite sites and products inspired by the Swedish furniture giant. Read more … Keep reading »
Mark your calendars! Less than six months until we can gorge on all Oprah programming all the time. With OWN’s launch date set for January 2011, the lineup is starting to come together. This week, it was confirmed that Rosie O’Donnell will be joining Shania Twain and Sarah Ferguson on the OWN team. All we know so far is that Rosie’s as yet unnamed daytime talk show will be based in New York and “fans can anticipate a fun, uplifting show with Ms. O’Donnell’s playful and energetic style.” Let’s hope it goes better than her stint on “The View.” Very important question: who from the lineup do we want to shun, shag, or marry? Find out after the jump. [Washington Post] Keep reading »
“You have to have date nights if you have children. Sometimes we’ll ask a babysitter to spend the night so we can go out, but sometimes we just go to another part of the house.”
