Would You Rather Get Dumped Or Dump Someone?

At some point, most of us reach a point where we’ve been dumped and dumped someone. Generally, I think people tend to fall into one camp or the other. Personally, I tend to prefer to let the other person do the dumping — color me passive-aggressive! — but in a few cases I’ve done the dumping. There is only one thing to be said about getting dumped: It sucks. Doing the dumping, on the other hand, I’ve found, is a bit more of a grab bag. In a way, it’s better, because you’re the one calling the shots, and I think dumping someone tends to leave the dumper feeling less, well, victimized. On the other hand, if you’re going to end a relationship, you better be damn sure you’re sure about that. Being the dumper entails greater responsibility. So, are you more often a dumper or a dumpee? Do you think one is easier than the other? What do you think is the best way to dump someone and to get dumped — or is that like asking what’s the best way to fall on your head? Tell us, Frisky readers, in the comments. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Guy Friend Wants To Sleep With Me”

It’s time again for “Shortcuts.” For every question, I’ll give my advice in three sentences or less, because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss guy friends who want to take things to the next level, mercy-killing a relationship, and guilt over being “the other woman.” Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Ready For Love” 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 “Ready For Love,” who, at 24, had never been in a relationship longer than six weeks and wasn’t finding anyone she was interested in dating despite numerous attempts to meet new guys. Hers certainly isn’t a unique story and I told her what I tell everyone in her shoes who asks me for advice: dating is a numbers game; you’ve got to get out and mingle as much as you can; smile at cute strangers (never under-estimate the power of a friendly smile!!); and fill your life with “things that bring you joy so that you aren’t just an empty vessel waiting for one person to fill you up.” Finding joy in other activities, I said, will also help keep the bitterness at bay. So, has she followed my advice? Are things working out for her? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
