Ask The Astrosexologist: I Can’t Quit A Libra Man

I was best friends with this guy all through college. Senior year we figured out we were attracted to each other and secretly hooked up a couple of times even though we were both in very serious relationships. We continued to hook up whenever we saw each other, but we never spoke about an actual relationship or our real feelings for one another.

Fast forward to last year — we had a very intense email correspondence going, telling each other how much we loved each other, and how we would try our best to make a relationship work, despite us living on opposite coasts with promising careers. At this time he was in a serious long-term relationship with another girl but he intimated that he would break up with her when he returned. I went to visit him for a week. During that trip, I learned that he was planning to buy a house and move in with his long-term girlfriend. I was pissed off and didn’t speak to him for a year. He and his girlfriend are now living the perfect suburban dream.

A couple of months ago, when he was visiting the west coast, I saw him. It was wonderful and we hooked up again. The last night he was in town, we stayed up all night talking—it was intense. I wanted to tell him how much he had hurt me before, but I didn’t want to ruin a perfect night. So, I emailed him after he left and told him how much he had hurt me, how much he meant to me, and how I was still willing to make something work. I haven’t heard from him for two months. I’m totally kicking myself, but I still want to believe in my heart that this just isn’t the time for us, and that the time might come someday. My birthday is 11/29/78, time 7:56am, in Washington. His birthday is 9/26/78. Do we have a chance in hell or am I another doormat? — Confused Keep reading »

Ditch The Whip Cream Bikini & Other Valentine’s Day Don’ts

Valentine’s Day Don’ts For Daring Women

  • Do not use indelible Magic Markers to write lewd things on your body. They don’t wash off. Use something aloe based instead.
  • Do not answer the door dressed only in Saran Wrap. The leech across the hall has a hidden camera trained on your door with YouTube written all over it.
  • Do not insist he drop his Fruit of the Looms and model the thong you got him. He could get hurt.
  • Do not confiscate the mic from the lounge singer to do raunchy lyrics to “My Horny Valentine.”

    Maybe We Could Be Soul Mates?

    When I told a friend that I was in break-up recovery, she didn’t hand me the name of her therapist, she lent me her “Sex and the City” Collector’s Gift Set. I had caught reruns of the show on the few nights I watched television outside of “60 Minutes” and “Frontline,” and while I loved the show for Samantha’s bawdy comments and Carrie’s commitment issues, every time I caught a rerun I learned the lesson that I needed. It became my modern-day version of the After-School Special, and I was hooked. So a month ago, between tears, I sat down with a glass of red Zinfandel, some dark chocolate, and started on all six seasons of its high-heeled wisdom. Keep reading »

    Shred Your Chris Brown CDs If You Love Rihanna

    We just got a press release telling us about about a nationwide protest in support of Rihanna/people who are unlucky in love. On Feb. 13, Radio station WBLI in West Babylon, NY, is having a “Shred Your Ex” party complete with a wood chipper for shredding photos, letters, and mementos from ex-lovers, as well as Chris Brown CDs and posters. Sure, we’re all mad at Brown for allegedly beating on our girl Rihanna, but we’re in an economic downturn — wouldn’t it be better to sell paraphernalia on eBay? Also, please recycle all love letters. Let’s do our part to help the environment! Keep reading »

    Why It’s Better Not To Have A Valentine

    Sometime when I wasn’t looking, Valentine’s Day metamorphosed from a C-list kids’ holiday, with pink and red candy and construction-paper hearts, into an extravaganza. The regular-person equivalent of Oscar Night, but instead of Best Picture or Best Supporting Actress, prizes are given for Best Achievement in the Acquisition of a Leading Man.

    But what if you don’t have a new pet “project” to promote or arm candy to show off? Better stay home rather than remind everyone that you couldn’t land the role of girlfriend, even for one night. Cause being single is cause for as much mortification as a bad dress on the red carpet. Keep reading »

    In Their Own Way, Text Messages Are Keeping Romance Alive

    A survey by the U.K.’s National Trust found that 70 percent of women and 53 percent of men would rather get a love letter or poem than a text or email. Yet, of the 2,558 people surveyed, 62 percent had never sent a love letter, while 69 percent had sent an “I love you” text. Is technology killing romance? As much as I despise text message abbreviations and sloppy typers, I don’t think so. Keep reading »
