Dating Don’ts: Sometimes It Really Is Better To Give …

Have you seen that Target commercial where the guy gives his date a beautiful necklace, only to have the woman look kind of uncomfortable and announce that she didn’t think they were quite “there” yet? After a flash of hurt crosses his face, he zings back that he bought it at Target so it was super cheap. I always high-five that guy in my head, but truth is, I’ve been an ungrateful giftee in the past.

However, it’s also the truth that I’ve received a lot of crappy gifts. Some were heartfelt, others were just dumb. So in light of the fact that we’re in primo gift-exchange season, I put together some guidelines for how to handle the gifts you get that really, they shouldn’t have … Keep reading »

Discuss: Should You “Schedule” Your Breakup?

Consider, if you will, two breakups:

Bachelor #1, a summer romance, invited me on to his parents’ motor boat. It was the day after we’d slept together for the first time and I thought we were having a lovely date. But this jerk puttered into the middle of Long Island Sound, stopped the boat’s engine, and then, as the boat was rocking back and forth in the waves, dumped me. Then he puttered the boat back to the marina, deposited me on a pier, and left, presumably to get in his car and drive himself home. Shocked doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt! ‘Did he REALLY take me on a boat in the middle of Long Island Sound just to break up with me? What a psycho!’ I said to myself, as I called someone to come pick me up. Keep reading »

Decode My Dream: My House Is On Fire!

“I had a dream last night that my family and I were over my grandmother’s
house (I live there with my grandma). My cousin and I were talking in the living room, and a blanket that was over the heater caught on fire. We rushed into the kitchen and screamed for everyone to get out. Everyone was luckily outside in the backyard when the fire broke out, so everyone got out safely.

When we stopped to rest, we were all excited that we got out without harm. Then I started crying frantically because I realized I left my dog behind. I awoke in a cold sweat before I knew what to do next. What does this mean?” – Up In Flames
