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

For The Week Of March 7-13, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You may know someone better than they know themselves, but you can’t stop them from kamikaze behavior. Sometimes, all you can do is sit back and just let it unfold. Most of the time it’s so harmless anyway, that at the very least, you can get yourself a good laugh at the ridiculousness of it all. When all is said and done, just whisper to yourself, “I told you so.”

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

When it comes to the game of love, this is the time when you just need to lay low. Time to watch the predator do its thing and just anticipate the pounce — which can also mean letting a few of them into the ring to sniff, but not touch, the lusciousness that is you. After all, variety is the spice of life and as it goes, you’ll be feeling extra hungry they days. So, go ahead, tease away.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Love doesn’t have to be complicated for it to be good. So, if you are getting rolled about in red tape that sounds exciting, step back and realize it’s not, but rather a bit ol’ waste of your time. Besides, what you need now is hot, fast and intense stimulation, one that leaves you breathless, not anxious. After all, decisiveness is sexy, evasion is not.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Speak from your heart and your words will lead you to exactly where you will want to be. When the right moment hits, your eloquence will take over and explain something about yourself and what you are feeling better than any Hollywood script, as your inner poetic genius will come to save the day at the most perfect moment.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

The homestead is going to get some feisty energy thrown into the mix, so expect lots of ridiculous fights that may break out over the most trivial matters. Seems it could just be a case of cabin fever, as this winter has been long and harsh, or it could be a symptom of something deeper. This week, what you gut is telling you will matter the most, so don’t put yourself into a state of denial.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Happy endings can come in the oddest of ways, so don’t discount little Freudian slips that come out of so-and-so’s mouth or even your own. Seems there are a lot of heavier emotions in play than anyone wants to admit, but why fight it? Someone has to get the ball rolling first, so when you hear the trigger, call it for what it is and go for it.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Just thinking about things won’t make them happen, and as much as you want to believe in the power of visualization, it’ll only get you so far. This week, it’s all about materialization, which means getting your booty into gear and working it until you can’t work it anymore, because effort on your part will be the only thing that matters now.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Naughty thoughts will fill your brain, creating a heat down below that you won’t be able to quell with just the usual. Now is the time when pioneering a whole new brave path will count, as it can bring about such a sense of intimacy between you and your significant other and will make you understand things on a whole other wordless level. Yes, a weird, but interesting week ahead.c

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

If you get any invites to skip town, take them. Otherwise, sticking around will mean dealing with others’ bull and all that entails. Yes, this is a week you could snap, not due to your actions, but others driving their psychological nails into your head. Sure, you’re the sign of patience, but not so this week. Warn others to tread lightly around you now.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Evasion isn’t a sexy way to respond, so put that coy act aside and strike at the heart of the matter, if it actually matters to you. As it stands, the ball is in your court and it’s time to give it a big whack or let it drop, as the mixed messages you’re throwing are causing more of a stir than necessary and only raise the stakes away from your favor. So, yes, be direct!c

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

There are certain foibles you’ll have to suck up for the greater good of your sanity. After all, no one is perfect and although your reasons of frustration will be obvious to anyone paying attention, life can’t always work with you in mind. However, despite these disturbances, the rest of your week should be a delight. So, as they say, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.” c

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Bullying, it’s the trend and we all know how you like to be in touch with the times. So, to stay on point, talk a little more forcefully to your boo and get your way, because the sterner you are, the less options there will seem and the easier your minion will follow. It is all about delivery now and the more you can bring it, the more subservient all will be.

Why Smart Women Fail At Relationships

When I first met my husband Noah ten years ago, if you had met me, you would have thought to yourself, “Now here is a smart woman. She’s getting her M.B.A, great job, confident. Here is a woman with tons of self esteem.” And you would have been right. That was all true. Which is why what I am about to tell you is even more shocking.

By our third date, Noah was so taken aback by my big reactions towards his small acts of kindness, that he felt compelled to take me by the hands and say to me, “Christine, I don’t know what is going to happen between the two of us, but regardless, you have to raise your standards for men. You can’t like a man because he is nice to you. He is SUPPOSED to be nice to you!” Keep reading »

Decode My Dream: A Visit From A Deceased Dad

I had a dream recently that I can’t seem to make sense of. In my dream, I was on the porch of another home, not the one I currently live in. It was snowing very heavy, which is unusual in southern Alabama, where I live. There were several people, friends and family, walking in with such joy and happiness. My sister walked up and handed me a framed photo of herself as she passed by and walked into the house. As I looked at the picture, my eyes began to water as if I was crying and I turned to look to my side and there stood our dad who passed away 10 years ago. He looked at me and said, “That’s right baby, this is the last one.” I looked away and when I looked back he was gone. At that point, I woke up very shaken. I have had dreams before that actually came true in my life and this one has me very disturbed. Can you please give me some insight? — Missing Dad

Girl Talk: Accidental Lessons In Love From My Mother

My mom has a boyfriend.

For most children of divorce this is nothing new–or perhaps all too common–but for me, this is big. Really big. You see, my mother has been single for most of my life. She has great friends, a close-knit family, and a job she feels passionate about, but she’s never really had a guy in her life since my parents divorced.

A typical Friday for her involves her bathrobe, the couch, our dog, and “The Daily Show” accompanied by the phrase “I like my life just the way it is!” Now, I realize that this sounds like the ideal Friday night for many people, myself included. But, it’s not really about the bathrobe or the TV shows or even the fact that it’s a Friday night. It’s about seeing some variation of this over and over again: My mother, alone. Keep reading »

Your Personality According To Corn On The Cob

I never knew a corn on the cob could be so revealing. What kind of person are you if you cut the corn off the cob and onto your plate because you don’t want all that crap caught in your teeth? A person very concerned about dental hygiene, that’s who. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I’m Not Sure I Want To Marry My Fiancé”

I’m 22 years old and my fiancé is 25. We are supposed to get married this October, but I’m having second thoughts. We’ve been together for over five years and were neighbors growing up. We both dropped out of college, but I have always held down a full-time job, whereas he got laid off and spent a whole year unemployed. I feel like I have a lot of resentment towards him because he had no excuse to not find a job. He didn’t have the ‘drive’ or ‘ambition’ that I wanted him to have. Since last June, he’s been a truck driver, a job that requires him to be gone sometimes a week at a time or longer with only one or two days home. Also, he still lives at home, and the thought of him being so dependent on his parents bothers me. A little over two years ago, he was really wanting to get married, but I kept telling him I wanted to wait until I was at least 21 so I could legally drink at our wedding. I think I was just making an excuse. He proposed after I turned 21, and some days I’m so happy to be engaged to him and some days I’m not. In addition to our other issues, our sex life is not okay. He always wants to have sex and I hardly ever do. I don’t really know why I don’t because he isn’t bad, but I just feel like I’m not attracted to him anymore. He is the only relationship I have ever been in and I don’t want to lose him but I don’t want to ‘settle’ either. I want to talk to him about it but I don’t want to hurt him. I guess now that we’re paying down payments for venues, buying a wedding gown and setting up classes with my pastor, getting married is hitting me. I don’t want to be a divorce statistic. — Cold Feet
