Girl On Girl

This week I’ve had a few reminders of the rules that exist for gay girls like me in American society. But because I’m an optimist, I’d like to look the bright side of things I can’t do in public. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Hated Summer Camp

Camp Keeyumah, a lush patch of woods in northern Pennsylvania, is where my entire family experienced “the best moments of their lives.” I’ve been hearing about their beloved Shangri-La since I was in diapers. My grandparents were head counselors there for 13 years and my mom “grew up there” as a camper and then a counselor. In fact, that’s where she met my dad, a counselor as well. They fell in love when they were 16 and 17, respectively. Yes, they’re still married. Isn’t it romantic? But the story doesn’t end there. Keep reading »

10 Brides Arrested On Their Wedding Day

Do you take this felon?
Everyone wants to look gorgeous on their wedding day, since you know that all eyes will be on you and that many albums’ worth of photos will be snapped. But very few brides probably anticipate taking a mug shot in their wedding dress and veil. This is exactly what happened to 53-year-old Tammy Lee Hinton of Michigan. She had a warrant out for her arrest for felony theft three years earlier, and so police officers used her wedding as the perfect opportunity to finally take her into custody. They did this moments after she walked down the aisle. And while the officers offered that she could change ensembles for her mug shot, she chose to stay in her wedding dress. After posting bail 30 minutes later, she headed to her reception. [Tabloid Prodigy] Now, sure, felony theft charges are a huge deal. But really, did the officers have to arrest Tammy at her wedding? I mean, there was no other opportunity? Hopefully, they at least brought a gift. In Tammy’s honor, we’re paying homage to other brides who ended up in the big house on their big day.

Health Insurance Makes You Sexier

According to an incredibly biased study done by eHealthInsurance.com, 90 percent of college students said that they would automatically find someone more attractive if he or she had one important quality … health insurance. A rare commodity indeed. Heed the call, co-eds. This may be only thing within your control when it comes to getting ahead in love. Make yourself more desirable dating material by continuing your coverage on your parents’ plan if they can afford it or, perhaps, taking out additional student loans so that you can join your university’s health insurance. Go to parties and flash your insurance card. Brag about how cheap your co-pay is for the Pill or invite your crush to accompany you to your physical next week. Then just sit back and watch them fall madly in love with you. [Consumerist] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Made 7 First Date Mistakes And He Still Liked Me

Over a lifetime of reading women’s magazines, I thought I had the rules of dating down. Yet at 30, with almost a decade living in a notoriously single city under my belt, I still managed to cram more classic first date mistakes into one evening than I would have thought possible. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “Should My Boyfriend And I Move To A Third World Country Together?”

I’m 21 and have been offered the opportunity to work in a rural area of a third world country. I will be doing something not very glamorous — necessary work for the project, but not the most exciting thing ever. I am very ambivalent as to whether I should accept it — I don’t speak the language, have no particular ties to this country, and am unsure if I would enjoy this opportunity. However, it would be a different experience and very unique. I would appreciate your level-headed thinking on this matter. In addition, I have a boyfriend of over two years. We have a great relationship and love each other deeply. He has offered to move to this country with me. He has few things tying him to our current location and has also expressed that he would be willing to follow me to other areas of the continental U.S., etc. My question is: is this a good idea? My heart says yes. It would ease my mind greatly if we didn’t have to worry about the long-distance relationship factor. I’ve mentioned potential obstacles, but he brushes it off as, basically, it doesn’t matter; he wants to be with me. What do you think? If I take this opportunity, I would want him to come, but I’m worried about what might happen. What if he hates it? What if he can’t find a job? I’m not even sure if I’ll be able to see him all that often. Please help! — First World Dilemma
