Girl Talk: I’m In A Bisexual Marriage

You’d think I’d remember the night that I discovered that my would be-husband was also bisexual–that the relationship I was entering into was a bi-bi partnership. But I can’t. It probably seemed … normal.

Previous boyfriends had not been out as bi, but some had made out with boys and, well, all of them did things like borrow my jeans or gush over indie-boy hotties. I guess bisexual boys are my type. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Dude Dilemma” 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 “Dude Dilemma,” the woman who was approached by a guy she had a “fun” first date with about getting a hotel room for their second date. “I declined the hotel offer,” she wrote, “but he pushed the issue, suggesting it would ‘make our relationship stronger.’” She asked me what I’d do if I were in her position and I said I’d MOA (move on already). After the jump, find out if she did just that. Keep reading »

Messing With Your Ex’s Netflix Ratings Is The Best. Revenge. Ever.

It’s breakup season. So, if your boo dissed you, a clever Reddit user has found the perfect way to make your ex get their comeuppance. He decided to get back at his cheating ex-girlfriend by going on a rampage through her movie ratings so all her recommendations would be a bitch slap across the internets. Now, even Netflix knows what she did last summer and is suggesting she should watch things like “Unfaithful,” “Indecent Proposal,” and “The Scarlet Letter.” Genius! Although, we’re not quite sure how “Bambi” made it in there. Oh Netflix, you so craaaaazy! [Dangerous Minds] Keep reading »

For The Week Of December 6-12, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Don’t just believe words you hear. If you want to trust what is happening, you need to see it with your eyes. Words are too easy now. This is the time when so-and-so needs to prove what they mean in a big way, by making a sacrifice or putting something on the line. If this person isn’t willing to go there, know that speaks louder than any words.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Although it has a high chance of being a mess, working with your baby on a home project can be your ticket to romance. Seems some bonding time is needed, in that nesting way, as in literally building something that together will help you both put bigger pieces of your puzzle together. It’ll be the mundane acts you do together now that will make you the hottest.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Good communication takes time to perfect. So even though you might not feel heard this week, say it anyway, because saying what you feel now is not for the other person, as much it is about you and just getting pent-up frustrations and ideas out. After all, if you can’t even admit it to yourself, how can you expect anyone else to want to understand?

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Big ideas might be brewing in your head, but getting another to listen to you is going to take extra efforts, as there will be a lot more red tape you are going to have to cut through to get your point across. While the frustration will be high, keep a good attitude, as it’s all about sticking to your vision now.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Sexy surprises are in store as your mojo will be amping itself a notch and having you suddenly change decisions you’ve made, sending you off to a new path. Yes, your boldness will be out for the world to see and while this might lower your popularity rating, you oddly won’t care, as this is your time and you just have to steer your ship where it must go.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

As much as you want to fight to clear up a certain misconception going on, don’t exert all your energy. Sometimes you have to see that people’s conclusions about you have nothing to do with you but with themselves, and as much as you want to argue, it won’t do a thing. Not to say you have to just stand there and take it, but understand some people are just that limited.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Life is going to be up and down, as you will be making new connections that will motivate you, but then there will be setbacks when overestimating another will make you want to give up. At this point you just have to take the good and the bad and not define every minute. Rather, step back to look at a bigger picture and work from that higher place.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You’ll be all about exercising your power now, but be careful how you express yourself, because no matter how gentle you think you might be, another will be working on the defensive. It’ll be a time when differing opinion can majorly clash and make your life one giant headache. As it goes, some people just don’t know what is good for them.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Just when you thought love is a many splendor, in comes the strings attached to make you rethink your position. Yes, not all will be lovely in paradise, as the variations on the truth pop up and you stop to reexamine the road you’ve been on. Luckily, friends are there to support you. So don’t be shy in calling up everyone and seeking out the answers you’ll need to move ahead.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Don’t be messing around with protection, literally and metaphorically, as now all the info you have won’t be what it seems. Avoid throwing caution to the wind, despite how good it might feel, because there may be a bigger price to pay. Besides, you are in no rush and the power is in your hands to call the shots as you wish and set the pace.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

No matter how much you care for someone, they can’t always do as you say. This is the time when you are going to have to be willing to compromise and choose being happy over being right. While this sounds like torture, as you do feel your actions deeply, you can’t always win every battle, but as long as you win the war, that is all that should matter now.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Just keep yourself busy with wrapping up the little details of your life, as trying to work on anything big will be too frustrating for words. Not to say the minutiae is a walk in the park, but at least there you will be able to make some headway. Plus, staying hectic with overdue errands is one way to keep you out of trouble.

Did Chivalry Kill Feminism?

In the 1950s, the rules of dating etiquette were clearer. A man knew it was not only acceptable but expected for him to open the door for his date, pull out her chair and pay for the meal. These days, the line between appreciated chivalrous acts and condescending behaviors is fuzzy at best. The feminist movement brought women the right to vote and earn equal pay, but it sure made the practice of dating more confusing in the process. It would be a dateless man indeed who didn’t acknowledge a woman’s right to make her own decisions when it comes to her life, her money, her body, and her mind — but how do you reconcile that respect with the kind of attitude a man is encouraged to project on a date?

Help! He’s Terrible At Buying Me Gifts

My husband cannot shop. He’s awful at buying gifts. He tries really hard, but it’s just not his thing. One year, I got socks. Then there were the years where I got electronic gifts—fun for him, but not for me (and no woman really wants a clothes steamer as her big Christmas gift, no matter how useful it is). Once I got a fishing pole. He’s tried to buy jewelry, but I never like it. Keep reading »
