Dear Wendy Updates: “No Kids, Please” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “No Kids, Please,” who said she didn’t want to ever have small children, preferring, instead, to maybe one day adopt or foster older children. She wasn’t sure how her boyfriend felt about that and worried about the future of their relationship as a result. After the jump, an update from her. Keep reading »

For The Week Of June 13-19, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Your money luck will be turning around this week, but just in time to deal with another mess that’ll cost you. Sorry to say, as one excitement builds, another might come to tear it down. Luckily, both can balance out each other and at the very least, you’ll come out even. However, new ideas to pull you back to the top are also circling about, so don’t fret. Just keep looking ahead.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

This week, the truth will come out, and when it does, it will put you in the best position you’ve been in, in ages — no matter what the initial sting may feel like. As it stands, you have no time to waste and finding out who really has your back will be music to your ears, as you can finally now know how to get the harmony you’ve so been seeking.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Just when you come to terms with one fact of life, in comes something new to decimate that, twisting your brain into new contortions as you try to make sense of it all. However, why bust a nut now? Instead, just lay back and let it settle before taking on any more. As it stands, real enlightenment is on its way and it’ll give you all the peace of mind you need.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’re entitled to change your mind as often as you like and if that other can’t get with it, then they may not truly get what you are all about. As it goes, you like to fly by the seat of your pants and this week, as a major opportunities arise, you’ll be required to think fast and re-prioritize; you may find out who really matters might not be as important as you or they think.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Listen closely to what your boo says because major talks will begin subtly. However, it will lead to big confessions and revelations for those important issues. Depending on how things have been going, this could raise your worst fears or quell them. Either or, expect to know where you really stand in the scheme of things and decide if that is good enough.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

This week, everyone will wish they could be you, as it’ll feel as if life has suddenly turned into a fairy wonderland with everyone in love with you — and they will be! Yes, major turning points can happen this week, and big changes that will bring all your hopes and dreams within reach are on the agenda. So forget pinching yourself anymore because, darling, you have arrived.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Screw what others expect of you because, let’s face it, most people don’t even know what you’re really capable of. Not to say you haven’t explained yourself well, it’s just that some people don’t even have the capacity or level of creativity to truly comprehend you. So, if going alone is necessary, at least you’ll know there is no one holding you back anymore.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Be ready to take that giant leap of faith without a care for the consequences. After all, over-thinking anything is not your strong suit, as you tend to tear things down rather than build them up when left with something in your head too long. So, put that fire under your ass and jump, as the only thing you need now is some trust in yourself.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Who you’re sleeping next to isn’t quite who you think they are, and you may wonder, Why didn’t I see that earlier? Not to say this is going to be material for a Lifetime biopic, but you’ll definitely have way more questions to ask soon and they’ll open up a few of the most riveting conversations you’ve had in ages. Don’t worry, they may just be hysterical.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Your heart is about to get the shock of a lifetime, but no matter, there is a something about this situation that you’ve always known was going to happen sooner or later. So, as you confront this fear, just be brave. All you can do now is keep the heart and mind open and realize anything now really is possible.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Don’t disregard your feelings, even the most selfish ones that have only your needs in question. After all, who else will look out for you, but you? While you would hope that other would too, it’s not always possible and sometimes they just don’t have the mental capacity to do as you’d wish. Take responsibility instead. It’ll be way more empowering and productive.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

This week will start a humbling period in which the circumstances challenge your ideals. This will mean going deeper into your psyche to pull out answers and new hopes that soothe you. However, know your hunches will be dead on and despite the madness that’ll erupt all around you, the grounding you need is within you.

An Open Letter To Girls Who Say “Daddy”

Note: Let me first start by saying this excludes anyone 8 and younger and for now we are not going to even start with the girls who call their boyfriends “Daddy.” Right now, I’m looking at the 16+ crowd who still, for some really weird reason, need to call their fathers “Daaaadddddddy.” Ladies, this is for you.

Dear women and young women who still say “Daddy,”

Maybe it’s because I don’t understand you, that I hate hearing your shrill voice yell for your “Daddy” as you stomp your foot. Maybe it’s because I’ve had old men ask me if I need a new Daddy, so the fact that you refer to your father as “Daddy” complete creeps me out. But, it’s probably because while you are doing so, you are usually throwing a tantrum, and you are also well into your 20′s. That’s why I usually look at you with disgust then opt to walk the other way, hoping not to run into you again. Read more… Keep reading »

How Not To Make An Online Dating Video

In what has to be a comedic interpretation of a “bad” video dating profile, single gal Debbie executes the worst eHarmony profile of all time. There’s a lot to be learned from watching Debbie self-destruct on video. Namely, if you’d like to get a date, don’t cry about cats before you’ve met your suitors in person. Actually, don’t cry about cats in person either. You may want to save that for the third date or oh, NEVER. [Viddler] Keep reading »

Girl On Girl: What’s Real About “The Real L Word”?

Reality TV is a tricky medium. It claims to be a realistic portrayal of the people (“characters”) and themes (“storylines”) it pieces together in each episode, but viewers are often left wondering how much of it was all for the cameras. So when a show is supposed to be a “real” portrait of a subset of under-represented people, it can be a little dangerous. And I’m not talking about any Housewives, Kardashians or aspiring pop stars.

Last summer, Showtime premiered the first season of “The Real L Word.” Reviews and ratings were poor, but the president of the network and producers of the show believed they identified a diamond in the rough in one of its “real” lesbians named Whitney. The second season, which premiered last Sunday night, is a radically different show in that Whitney is the only returning cast member, and the rest of the new ones all appear to be just as willing as she is to get naked and intimate on screen.
