Dear Wendy Updates: “In Love, Maybe” 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 “In Love, Maybe,” who had a great vacation fling in a foreign city that she hoped might turn into something more. “Once I got home, everything seemed dull without him,” she wrote.”The life we’d jokingly talked about having together sounded good. We started emailing a little. Without saying anything about it, I’ve started learning his language and saving money to go back.” After the jump, find out what happened when she did finally go back.

For The Week Of February 28-March 6, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Just stay on track, keep your priorities in order and all else will fall into place with your boo. As it goes, it’s their turn to make a move and chances are good they will follow. So look pretty and show off what you got while avoiding making any demands, because through osmosis, they will get it, and from there, life will evolve into a sweeter little tale of love and happiness.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

It’s not always about being over the top when it comes to adding some spice to your life. This week, to get the attention of your baby or whoever you’re eyeing, know it’s all about the little things, like being an ear for them to spill all their little trials and tribulations to. As it goes, once you win their trust, you’ll see a brand new twist to all that is love this week.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Put on your fancy shoes and prettiest looks, because it’s time to hit the town and spread your hotness all around. Yes, the stars have aligned, putting spontaneity and adventure on the agenda for you. Just don’t over think it or get ahead of yourself, as that’s the buzz kill that will ruin all. As it goes, be in the moment and let it unravel the way it must for optimum results.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Trust isn’t something you throw around easy, so when you arrive at a certain situation with that special someone, it will make you a bit anxious — but surprise surprise, seems they will be passing the test and proving that your idealism isn’t without merit. Yes, just when you thought you could lose all faith in humanity, this week’s turn of events will prove to be an optimist’s dream.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

It’s time to make some crucial decisions and stop teetering on the fence. If you really don’t know which way you want to go, don’t fret; by the week’s end, the answer will become clear. However, you’re going to have to throw the pragmatism aside to see it, as there will be no logic that can get in the way of what you must do next. Yes, time to truly be brave to forge ahead.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Time to indulge, because if you want to feel good anything soon, it’ll mean spoiling yourself. Sure, this might cost you more than you like, but you have to see everything you spend now as an investment in your sanity. As it goes, the future is unraveling and to make sure your mind doesn’t follow suit, keep it together by soothing yourself by spending some cold hard cash.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

One of those wake up and smell the truth moments is going to happen, as the scent of honesty will be so strong, that even you won’t be able to deny it anymore. However, don’t be scared, as what gets uncovered now will be a good shock to your system. These enlightening new facts can open up your world and heart in ways that’ll make you want to dive right in.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You’re going to have to be more flexible this week, as it’ll be flakes-r-us in your life. Yes, people won’t be responding quite as you like, but it’s not like you didn’t sense something in the air. You know it, your gut instincts will be working overtime, so do pay attention to the vibes you feel when meeting and greeting others, as this is the time you should feel free to jump the gun.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Big career changes are coming, putting you in the spotlight. Of course, not everyone will fall in line as easy as you’d like, but who cares. You’re the one with power now and there is no time for letting yourself be intimidated. So, to get into total “head bitch in charge” mode ASAP, start by practicing at home, as whipping others into submission may take a little practice to perfect.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The world will feel as if everything you’ve wanted has fallen at your feet, as love, life and career will start feeling like a dream. However, be careful with what’s real and what’s just in your head. Sure, it’s great to have aspirations and see the potential, but you have to be on the same page as others now to have it all truly come together. So, pay attention and avoid editing out what you really don’t want to see.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

There is no mountain too big for you to climb now, as you have everything in you to succeed—and that includes vision. So, don’t shortchange yourself by thinking you can’t, as putting yourself in the line of fire now will be what will ignite the energy in you to go that extra mile. Of course, it will require you make that leap of faith, so stretch out those legs and go!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

A sweet surprise is in store for you and it may make you love your honey more than you could even imagine. Yes, big love and romance are all on the agenda, as well as hot sex and steamier conversations that have you both realizing how powerful fate truly is. However, no matter how much emotion fills your life, keep it hush-hush for now, as this time is just for you and your boo.

5 Signs Your Friend Is Really A Frenemy

Our generation, the trailblazers that we are, will leave a lot of different marks on this world, but none more significant than our ability to create new (and fabulous, mind you) words. Sexting. Legit. Facebooking. Fab. Whatevs. Whether we’re abbreviating them or combining them, we’re creating them, and we’re creating them with very specific purposes in mind.

How else would you describe a friend that acts like your enemy? Someone who you think you can trust, but you really can’t? Someone who makes you feel worse while she pretends she’s trying to make you feel better? This person is not your friend. But she’s not exactly your enemy either.

She’s your frenemy. Keep reading »

Top 10 Surprising Ways To Get A Guy To Commit

At first, dating expert Rori Raye’s ideas about how to get a man to commit seemed counter-intuitive: Don’t be his girlfriend? Don’t try to win him over?

Decode My Dream: I Cheat In My Sleep

I have been in a relationship with my first serious boyfriend for a little over a year. Our relationship is great and I am very much in love. A couple of weeks ago, I started having dreams about flirting with other men, being tempted to hook up with them, and even cheating on my boyfriend. Sometimes it was about guys that I know, but mostly it was about strangers. It lasted for about four nights in a row, but I haven’t had them since. I would never even think of cheating on my boyfriend, although I sometimes lose a bit of desire or sexual attraction towards him. I think he is the one, and even though that is absolutely great, I sometimes think about how I might never get to ”experience” dating and being single. So what do those dreams mean? — The Sleeper-Cheater
