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

For The Week Of August 3-10, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

It might feel as if the world is working against you right now and to some extent it is, but if you are indeed as bright as you think you are and can work the angles, you will find that there are more than a few loopholes you can work your way through to move out of the turmoil that has seemingly trapped you.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Who you choose to associate yourself with is your business and anyone that tries to manipulate you isn’t giving you enough credit to be able to handle yourself. Sure, it’s nice to have people care about you, but there is a fine line between being protective and controlling. Until they can find that distinction, it’s best not to listen to anyone else but yourself.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Emotionally speaking you’ve been feeling more intense than most can even begin to comprehend and while you can try to explain yourself, chances are it’ll only upset you and leave you feeling more alone than before. Best to use your escapism tendencies to deal, because trying to go about anything rational now will be an unnecessary downer.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Agreements are about to be made and sealing important deals will lift a massive amount of stress off your shoulders, getting you back into a chill position in your life. Slink back into play mode with your honey and realize that if he has been willing to put up with you for the last few weeks as is, you‘ve got yourself a real keeper.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your relationship with money is one of the most solid ones you’ve got. However, when someone enters the picture, you’ll wonder if something has been lacking in your life all the while and if your material instincts have been leading you astray. Seems there are a few vital things you’ll want that money just can’t buy.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You’ve had your heart in the right place, but your mind less so. This week, a magical alignment happens and puts you back on the right karmic page, driving you ahead in the proper direction that isn’t just good for your soul, but everyone around you too. Yes, others will finally stop wondering what crack pipe you’ve been smoking out of. Hoorah!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

If you have paid attention to your gut, this week won’t be a big shock to you, as the thing you thought would come to pass will happen this week. If you haven’t been listening to your inner voice, then this is when you will reconsider why and deal with those issues that make you your own worst enemy.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Strategy and calm emotions will be your key to getting through this week with the least amount of drama as possible. As it goes, keeping friends close and enemies closer will have played a vital role in how this week will sort itself out and deliver you onto a new drama that not only has you peeved, but also wondering if you’re psychic.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Choosing the best for you is easy, as the choice that will work is the one that isn’t pressuring you to drop all other choices. Getting control of matters at hand means knowing what’s behind the forces pulling you. If you truly want the life you say you want, with one that is for your ultimate good, then you will understand that freedom isn’t a bad thing.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

This is when the big talks stop and the action begins. Yes darling, time to end those lighthearted flirty games and get down to business, opening up and discussing that emotional agenda you have locked up in the most guarded places of your heart, revealing that you do indeed have a delicate sensibility that isn’t all just jokes and giggles.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You’ll be so doped up on love; not much will phase you. However, a tide of stressful events is coming that’ll shift the power dynamics in your life — which most likely have to deal with your finances. No, this isn’t the best news in the world, but be grateful that you have a trusted source to curl up to during this rocky period and do so.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You’ll reach your last bit of patience and snapping won’t be out of the realm of possibility. While the tantrum aspect of it won’t be pretty, something surprisingly hot will grow out of it and what blooms will be worth its weight in gold. However, don’t expect anything to be so linear this week.

Rorschach Test: Sex And Marriage Material

The Rorschach test is in the news. The entire 10 plates have been posted on Wikipedia and the controversy begins. The ten plates have been kept tightly under wraps for years. But now the copyright has expired. So it is quite natural to wonder: “Can a Rorschach test be used to determine marriage material? Can it tell us about intimacy? What about sex?” Continue reading Keep reading »

Thinking Vs. Feeling: Which Is Better In Relationships?

A funny thing happened on the way to a party recently. It was a work party for my friend Dave’s venture capital firm. He was going with Mary, his longtime girlfriend who, just a few weeks earlier, he had asked to marry him.

As the couple was about to enter the party, Mary stopped, turned to her fiancé and asked, “Do you think what I’m wearing is okay?”

Dave gave her an appraising look and said, “You look great. But you probably could have worn different shoes.” (Insert collective gasp here.) Keep reading »

Decode My Dream: My Ex Is Trying To Kill Me!

“My ex and I have been broken up for nearly a month, but I continue to have reoccurring dreams about him. In all of them he is trying to murder me. I’ve lost track of the number I’ve had, but they all involve him, a knife, and me waking up in complete terror. The first one actually occurred shortly before we broke up after he had informed me that he no longer knew if he was in love in me. In all of them he has made a point of laughing each time he stabs me. It’s reaching the point where I’m trying to avoid sleeping just because I don’t want to wake up screaming. Can you tell me what’s causing these and if I can expect them to stop soon? – Sleep Deprived Keep reading »

DIY Dating in the Dark

Viewers are going crazy over the new ABC show “Dating in the Dark” where women and men are forced to get to know each other in the pitch black darkness. After a few dates, they are allowed to see each other without speaking and finally must make the choice of how important looks really are. Here at The Frisky we wish we had time to audition and hop on to one of these fun shows, but sadly we don’t. (Consequently, some of us also have boyfriends who just wouldn’t understand.) Instead we’ve decided to find activities to recreate dating in the dark. Keep reading »

Is Gossiping Ever Good?

America is a nation obsessed with other people’s lives. A visitor glancing at our magazine and newspaper racks or flipping through TV channels immediately knows where our priorities lie, and it’s not with dissecting world politics. Instead, we hunt for news about the latest troubled starlet and watch other people’s lives unfold via reality TV shows. Keep reading »

Flowchart: What To Do When You Get Stood Up

I just got stood up. It’s sad, but true. Worst of all, it was finally the sex date. Double burn. I don’t know why this last dude left me waiting. My guess is he was either called back into spy service by the FBI or mauled by a tiger. Fingers crossed it was the latter. Just kidding. Sort of. But couldn’t he at least have had the balls to dump me, instead of just leaving me hanging? Sigh.

Unfortunately, for some reason, I get stood up a lot. I’m kind of a pro at it by now. It all started back in high school when my date ditched me the night of my senior prom. And a couple years ago, I spent a Valentine’s Day alone on my sofa in a new red dress crying to Ben & Jerry. (Although that did inspire me to make this music mix, “You Can’t F*#& The Hole In My Heart.”) So, as you can see, I’m an expert with what you should do with the night you had saved for a man who doesn’t show up to share it. Here are some options and outcomes in a handy-dandy flowchart. (CLICK HERE to see it on a larger scale.) Notice, I don’t recommend bitching him out. I’m classy like that. And you obvi have better things to do too, girl! Keep reading »
