Love & Sex

I really didn’t know what polyamory was until I fell into it at 27. I was arguing one day with a couple I’d been sleeping with for about a month, when BAM! I ended up in a three-way relationship.

I’ve always been open-minded as far as sexual relationships were concerned and was sleeping… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

At first it might have been charming: he orders for you on dates, wards off creepy guys at the bar, wants to protect you. What girl doesn’t like being taken care of? But there’s a thin line between wanting what’s best for you and deciding what’s best for you. … READ MORE »

It’s time again for shortcuts, wherein I answer readers’ letters in two sentences or less. Sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we examine surprise boners, just saying ‘no’ READ MORE »


Love & Sex

One of the more cringe-inducing memories I have of my teen years is playing the Buzzcocks’ “I Believe” over and over, as I sobbed alone in my twin-sized bed. In particular, the line “There. Is. No. Love. In. This. World. Any-moooooooore!” always sent me into paroxysms of tears. I was positive—one-hundred-percent convinced—that life would be… READ MORE »

The divorce rate in this country is way too high, period. Many marriages break apart due to financial problems, work-related stresses, the hectic nature of raising children, and a constellation of other reasons.

Love & Sex

I’m not one of those people who demands a lot of time from friends, because vegging out on the couch watching reality TV is one of my favorite pastimes. Not only that, but I’m my mom’s only child, so I learned to entertain myself from a very early age. But lately, I’ve considered calling out… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

For the most part, I’m a pretty happy, confident person, but, man oh man, when feelings of insecurity start seeping in, a small part of me inevitably turns into a little green-eyed monster. If I’m having a “fat week,” I’m jealous of women with great figures; when I’m feeling like everything in my closet is… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

There comes a point in every relationship when two people become so cozy together that they start to create their own private, little world. One person’s neck becomes a perfume shop, a place where you could bury your nose for hours. The other’s chest becomes a bedroom piece as essential to sleeping as the bed… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

My boyfriend’s mom committed suicide a couple of days ago, most likely from stress from her divorce, financial issues, and selling of their house. Right now he has the support of his immediate and extended family. I’ve been blessed with zero death experience, so I’m not sure how this would affect him as a person,… READ MORE »

The other day, Wendy wrote a list of the different things that make a woman feel beautiful, outside of hearing the words from a man. I noticed that many of the items on the list were experiences — successfully cooking a great recipe, doing yoga, etc. — and it got me thinking about some of… READ MORE »

Yesterday, I read Wendy’s post on how to get your wedding announcement in The New York Times and followed a link to Offbeat Bride, where brides who think outside the box showcase their unique weddings. But far and away the most special, and moving, wedding I saw was that of Rebekah, a designer and “wannabe… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

It’s pretty normal for people to talk to their pets — I do it all the time — but is it OK for humans to prefer sharing their problems with their dog, rather than, say, their spouse? A slightly disturbing new survey of more than 1,000 pet owners found that 33 percent of married women… READ MORE »
