Sassy sophisticated relationship advice for real women everywhere: dating advice, love advice, and more!

For The Week Of July 11-17, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Forget the formalities and just let it all hang out. Besides, what is the point of living out an act that lacks real heart, especially when it comes to dealing with matters of love? Time to get real and make it work on terms that can actually happen. Otherwise, pretending you like things you don’t or are okay with things you’re not will obviously end poorly.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

If you have been seeking approval from one of your honey’s relatives or having your family accept the dude you have on a hook, then hooray for this week! Yes, go out and buy that three-tier cake, because you will be wanting to get your party on, as miracles regarding family will take place, making you finally get what the fuss is all about.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Keep the valium close by, because this is the week when trying to get that extra bit of calm will be a bit harder to come by, especially when various confessions get spewed and set your brain on fire. Not that all that you learn will be horrid, but just not expected and might change how you view another. However, the aggravating part is you kind of saw it coming.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Keeping up with the Joneses is boring and anyone trying to go head-to-head with you on such base circumstances will sadly be mistaken, as you don’t play those games and can demolish them in minutes. However, another ego battle under your belt is never a bad thing, so if you like to be mildly entertained, be ready to squelch the competition hard this week.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Set the record straight. If your relationship is careening out of control and your baby is being all sorts of whack, then you need to slam on those brakes to get back on course. Now is the time to get clear with your goals, near and far, as your other is no mind reader and as of late, you’ve been one weird cookie to follow.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Feel free to lock the doors, close the curtains and take time out from the world — or better yet, take a trip out of town and get back to the core of who you are, without distractions. As it goes, you are in major need of clarity now, but if you stay among the static, you won’t be receiving any of the messages you can learn.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

There will be a certain protocol among “friends” that is expected of you, so don’t overstep boundaries. If there is something you want from another now, it’ll mean having tact and perhaps even a little ass kissing. While that is never good news, it’s all part of the game. However, if this ultimately means a win, then know it’s a small price to pay.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

What you think is yours and what another wants to give won’t sync up. Yes, it’ll be a time for having the old versus new be among the obstacles you face now. While it’ll require major uphill climbing, know that if you have a goal in mind, it won’t be an issue. However, if you don’t stop and reconfigure your plan, you will be the last one to pass that finish line.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Whoever said love was easy certainly wasn’t dating the people you date. You know it, this week is when your idealism can come crashing down and have you seeing your situation differently. You may end up re-estimating the potential of the one you’re with and the relationship you are striving for…. Whatever, at the very least you can always keep them as your #1 booty call.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

If you want to get anything done, you’re going to have to do it yourself — even if this means getting off in a manner that makes your brain fry. Yes, darling, your needs will be getting way more intense and to satisfy their urges, it may take going out of your comfort zone in a bigger way to reach that itch that is dying to be scratched.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You just have to roll with the punches when it comes to your emotions, as this week you will hit a crossroads and things might not be as in sync as you’d like. Your heart may be somewhere, with your mind wandering elsewhere — and as you proceed ahead, all you want to do is bad. Crazy consequences are around every corner, so tread lightly.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Your day-to-day life will not be as easygoing as you’d want, because agendas will get crossed and you might have to be the one that bites it and concedes to others’ plans. If you do, take one for the team and make a mental note of the graciousness you have shown. As it goes, not everyone around you is such a team player, so best to keep your antennae up now.

Things You Don’t Even Want To Tell Your BFF

Best friends talk about everything. There’s nothing you have to hide from your biffle. Dirty laundry and everything, your best friend will always be by your side.

…At least that’s what we always hear.

But there are some things that we just don’t want to talk about, even with our bestie. Some secrets are best kept bottled up inside, tucked away into a dark corner in our minds and never spoken of again, right? Riiiiight.

So what are these things that we never want to share, you might ask? You know what I’m talking about. Click through for some reassurance on the secrets that make you squirm just thinking about ever mentioning to your best friend. Read more… Keep reading »

Casey Anthony Wasn’t Ready To Be A Mom, And Neither Was I

When Caylee Anthony disappeared in 2008, I followed the news coverage with a sick heart. I hugged my then-6-year-old daughter a little tighter and whispered multiple prayers of thanksgiving for her safety. Caylee’s story made me imagine what it would be like to have a child disappear, and those thoughts terrified me on a level I didn’t know existed.

As it became clear that Caylee probably wouldn’t come home safely, the nation learned more about her mother, Casey. A young, single mom with an irresponsible streak, it was obvious that she wasn’t ready to be a parent. And as I held my own child, it wasn’t only Caylee’s story that scared me, it was Casey’s. Just as Caylee brought to mind my daughter, Casey reminded me of myself when she was first born. Keep reading »

Lies We Wish We Never Told — Share Yours!

Some lies go off without a hitch, like the time I swore to my parents that the strange smell coming from my room was definitely incense. Sorry mom and dad! And then there are the other kinds of lies, the ones that go so terribly, terribly wrong they make you wish you could dig yourself a hole and hide there forever and ever. In honor of To Tell the Truth Day, Frisky staffers (including myself) fess up about their most regrettable whoppers. Share yours in the comments if you’re ready to finally come clean. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Why Do Girls Slut-Shame Each Other?

There’s that scene in “Mean Girls” where Tina Fey, exasperated by the high school antics, shouts, “You’ve got to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it okay for guys to call you sluts and whores.” I had just graduated from high school when the movie came out and sitting in the theater, I couldn’t believe how much this line resonated for me. All of a sudden, I was transported back to those halls I’d just escaped. I could hear the cool girls greeting each other at their lockers with the words, “What up, sluuuuut?”

Reclaiming words like bitch and slut may have started as something political, something third wave feminist, but the words ended up in malls, emblazoned in rhinestones on baby tees at Deb and Rave. Keep reading »
