Girl Talk: After 30 Years On The Run, I Finally Learned How To Stay Still

I was 5 years old the first time I threw on a pair of heels, packed a suitcase and informed my mother that I was moving out. At age 10, I boarded a plane to swim camp and never looked back. My father, worried, followed me on board to make sure I was fine—I was horrified by his intrusion. By the time I reached 12, I’d begun fantasizing about boarding school and begged my parents to send me away soon after. At age 15, I volunteered in Venezuela for the entire summer—I left a few days after the school year ended and returned home a mere week before classes began again.

The summer of 1998 is rarely mentioned. That was the summer my parents parted ways and I flew between Tennessee and California roughly a dozen times in three months. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “Can Ex-Lovers Be Roomies?”

I am currently sharing my apartment with my ex-boyfriend. Initially, this wasn’t the plan, but he gave a good argument about why it would be beneficial to the both of us — namely financially. I told him we could try it out and see. Well, it’s been a month and something has come to my attention that just really bothers me. He recently sent me an e-mail, accidentally, under an alias e-mail account he uses. The weird thing is that his alias is a female. When I asked him why he had an alias account and why he’s using a female name, he hesitated then said, “I don’t know … I use it for junk e-mails and stuff.” I explained to him that I thought it was creepy. I, too, have an e-mail account specifically for junk e-mails, but I don’t use an alias and if I did, my alias wouldn’t be a member of the opposite sex. His response to this was to delete his female alias account and create a new male alias account. My question is, am I wrong to find this incredibly creepy and to wonder what else he’s hiding? It’s no secret that one of the reasons we broke up was due to his secretiveness and lying. Am I an idiot for thinking we could be roommates? — Two’s A Crowd

For The Week Of November 15-21, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

This is your week to start working out a sweeter deal with your baby, as you’ll both be starting to sync up in quite the lovely way to make goals that will inspire both of you. Seems the future is turning out not to be such a dark void that leaves you wondering. With this foundation being set, you can expect all other areas of your life to start to fall into place too!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

A sudden change of heart may happen, which will be stressful, but it’s a necessary hurdle to jump over if you want to get to the place you feel you should be. Sure, no one likes being a heartbreaker, but when all is said and done and you can look back at the chain of events objectively, you’ll see that this is a title you should wear as a badge of honor.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

What goes down must come up. Thankfully, this is the week things start to soar back into place. The planets will slowly come out of their haziness and back to where you need them to be for the universe to work its muscle in helping you create the vision you dream for yourself, and perhaps a certain lucky someone.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You just have to roll the dice sometimes and let whatever you have said do what it must. Sure, you might have let it pour from your mouth faster than you had time to edit, but whatever seeped out, trust it. Hopes and dreams do work out in the way they want to, just not necessarily the way you think.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You can’t be scared to grab the truth by the balls and make it what you will. Yes, not all of what you now know is a piece of cake, but knowing the truth is a power unto itself — as now you truly know where you are and who is behind you. Realize that rising above and reclaiming the helm to your own life is just a few decisions away.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Dreams and passion are coming back big-time this week, shaking you to the core and right back onto your feet and into the thick of things. Seems your time of watching from the sidelines is over, as now your genius is back on track. So, don’t be shy in sharing your ideas and planning for the long term.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Your first ideas will be your best, so don’t second-guess yourself. Sure, the past few months have been a bit unpredictable, leaving you to wonder what exactly is best for you. But now with your instincts at their strongest, without a doubt work your charisma to get the world back into the palm of your hand.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

All the issues that have been ruffling your feathers as of late are miraculously going to move into past tense mode. Perhaps it’s that you’re both tired of arguing or a real solution has been found. Whichever the case, compromise is coming just in time to save you from another round of drama, which, incidentally, has been teaching you the age-old lesson that relationships are hard work.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Working out your day-to-day with your honey is going to get a lot easier, as your schedule will start freeing up and you will be able to plan in some more romantic times. However, don’t put too much pressure on yourself to make these moments all about you and him. Sometimes the sweetness arises when hanging out with others.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The rose-colored glasses are coming off and now you will get a clear view of what is happening in your love life. New boundaries are going to be drawn and new ideals set into place. Whatever happens from here on out will be on more solid ground than you would have thought. This is the phase when reality starts to set the tone and will truly be your friend.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The party is going to be back on! So, time to splurge and do it up as if it’s the end of the world, because right now is all about letting off some steam and taking on a devil-may-care attitude. What you give is what you will get, so set the pace for fun because if you want it, it’ll be there. Yes, attitude, it’s all about attitude!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

This is your week to share those sexy fantasies that you think make you a freak, because someone else wants to hear about them. Seems you’re not the only one on the block to think the nasty things you do and when such great minds think alike, there is no reason not to take up the offer and fly off to this dream wonderland together. Who knows? It might just be a one-way ticket.

How To Be A Great Date

The best way to establish and maintain instant dating rapport is to talk about the other person, not you. Successful dating starts with successful conversations! Successful conversations are sustained by placing full attention on the person in front of you.

Even if your accomplishments include running up Mt. Everest without crampons or landing a deal with Donald Trump, defer this information. I don’t care if Lady Gaga just asked you to sing back-up for her, keep it under wraps! You will have plenty of time to talk about yourself as the conversation progresses. Keep reading »

Ask The Astrosexologist: “Should I Continue To Wait For My Aries Man To Completely Commit?”

I am a Capricorn and for the past six years I’ve been dating an Aries. It always seemed that we got along together, and he always spoke of commitment and marriage. However, he is (according to my standards at least) unable to follow through because his chosen career doesn’t let him to earn enough and he also can’t spare any money. He is a smart guy and I have long sought to convince him to change careers, so he can have a good salary; combined with mine, we could finally live together. He agrees in theory, but when the time comes, he says I am not supportive of his dream. We have already broken up twice because of this.
