Girl Talk: Hello, Anxiety

The past four months of my life were really, really s**tty and hard. I got dumped suddenly by someone with whom I was in love. I moved out of the apartment we shared together and back in with my parents for three months. The Frisky was sold to new owners and we’ve all had to adjust to that (with a smaller staff) while working from home since we don’t, as of yet, have a new office space. All of that happened within a few weeks of each other. Can you say stress? My coping mechanisms were crying jags and burying myself in my bedsheets with “Keeping Up In The Kardashians” on Netflix Instant.

Dear Wendy Updates: “Friendless In High School” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Friendless in High School,” who moved to a new school two years before graduation and hadn’t made any friends other than her boyfriend. She had grown so used to having him as a safety net, she wasn’t even sure whether she’d be able to go away to college without him. “My single self would probably be really mad at me right now for considering making this decision depending on my “high school sweetheart,” but on the other hand, I’m afraid of not finding new friends again, so I would like to have some kind of safety.” After the jump, find out if she’s still as lonely as she was when she wrote in and whether she’s still basing her college decision on her boyfriend.

For The Week Of April 11-17, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

We all have a freakier side our desires, and happy are the times we get to live it up and explore on them. This week is your week to let your libido run wild and have your passions burn, as the fuel to incinerate your repressions is here. It’s your time to usher in a new era of freedom and sexual confidence!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You may have a very pleasant way about you in public, but even you can’t hide the condescension when you are feeling so negatively about another. Forget trying to people please your way through this one, because you won’t be able to grasp any solid answers to work through it. If you feel it, say it, as some heat under your collar will warm you up quite nicely now.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You can make up some weird rules for yourself sometimes, just to test your own endurance — but what does that get you? Sure, you have learned time and time again that you are as tough as nails, but if you are not getting more out of it, then it’s time to get back to the drawing board and rework a few of your strategies.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Power is money and you know it. Don’t delude yourself that it doesn’t matter in your relationships, because no matter how much you try to ignore it, it’ll rear its ugly head and you’ll just have to deal. But it doesn’t have to be more of a demon than you make it out to be — peaceful solutions are possible.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

There is no reason to second-guess yourself, especially if you are getting a funny feeling someone isn’t treating you as they should. However, instead of taking time to make excuses for the situation, own up to the truth of the matter and put your foot down. This is your time to stick up for yourself, because if you don’t, no one will ever know what hurts you.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Think back to something you predicted or thought of ages ago, because this week will prove your psychic skills are on point. Yes, something you knew was coming is going to take hold of you now and when it does, it won’t shock you, so much as leave you a little numb. After all, the predictable has never really turned you on.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

At the end of the day all romantic relationships that work have a strong friendship as its basis. However, just because that part of the equation is major, doesn’t mean it should negate all else either — as in, how do-able are you still to each other? If your answer is shamefully low, don’t worry; this is your week to successfully start spicing things up.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Approach this week delicately, as it’ll do you good to enter it confidently, but not cockily. Yes, know your worth and what you’re capable of doing, but don’t push too hard in letting that other person know — whether it be your baby or boss. Whatever the situation is, they’ll have to make the ultimate choic

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

People have a funny way of showing they care and sometimes it’ll mean, on your part, reading between the lines. This week, don’t be scared to have to dig deeper to find what you need, but beware that not all that you learn may be as pretty as you’d wish, as sometimes the truth can be downright dirty.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Timing may be your gift in comedy, but in life, you can’t seem to hit the mark — but whatever. If things are meant to be, they’ll happen when you feel comfortable with them, but you’ll be required to call some shots. Sure, the 11th hour isn’t always the most popular one, but it does hold the most anticipation, so make that entrance!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

If love could only make someone perfect, but no…Yes, when it comes to the object of your affection, deep dark secrets may surface and make you do a double-take. While it may be good or bad, the toss up is in the air and surprises will be in store, as things will start to slowly unravel this week.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

As much spirit as you bring, you can’t always expect it back. Sometimes another will have a bizarre way of showing their appreciation and that is just how the cookie will crumble. Of course, if this buzz kill continues, realize that you may just be barking up the wrong tree, as enthusiasm is ultimately one of your many aphrodisiacs.

8 Ways To Spring Clean Your Relationship

I’ve been cleaning out a lot of closets lately, and going through old boxes in the basement. Isn’t it embarrassing all the stuff we accumulate over the years? I found some head phones from the 1980s! Spring is the ideal time for organizing our lives—clearing out the old, decluttering, and trying to make our environment a little more pleasing. I feel more in control of my life when things around me are more in order.

Where in our relationships can we use a little spring cleaning? Here are some ideas for spring cleaning your marriage:

Hey, Groupies, Get Your Hands Off My Man!

The behind-the-scenes festivities of a sporting event or music concert include three basic essentials: food, drinks, and groupies. They’re fixtures in the after-party scene, clamoring for the attention and — oh dare they hope? — a moment of bad decision-making to wrangle the sperm of their wealthy and/or high-powered man targets.
