Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Wants To Hook Up With Someone Else”

My boyfriend and I are both 20 and have been in a long-distance relationship for almost the past year. We have an amazing chemistry and connect in a way I didn’t think possible. The issue is, although he has now had a couple long-term relationships, he’s never had a random hook-up. My first semester freshman year, I made out with a lot of guys at frat parties and what not, and he knows that. This past June, he started talking about how he wished he had that experience, too, but we talked about it, and moved on. Unfortunately, he’s talking about it again. He says that he thinks I’m the one and I honestly feel the same way, but he also says that it’s bothering him that he’s missed out on something. I know it’s only going to stay bottled up inside for him and then explode at random times. I suggested taking a break so he could have whatever he wants and then after, like, six months we could get back together, but he said he doesn’t believe in breaks ’cause it would just hurt me to have him mess around like that. I know he doesn’t want to have sex with anyone else — just a random girl to make out with. I know that one encounter will set his mind at ease, but I’m at odds as to what to do about this. — Not a Random Girl

Mind Of Man: What Men Want For Christmas

Men would rather give than receive. Keep this in mind, ladies, as you freak out, panic, and wring your hands over what to get your beloved for Christmas. Around this time of year, I offer my services to various female friends who are all on maddening quests to buy their boyfriends and their husbands the perfect gift. These women are driven partly out of love, and partly because they feel they have to top the gifts their husbands and boyfriends have gotten them in the past. These gifts were, of course, exactly what the women wanted, and they were either cleverly hidden or extravagantly wrapped.

The secret to buying a woman the “perfect” gift, of course, is simple. You listen to her. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Responded To A Missed Connection Ad

I’ve accomplished a few really great things in my life — losing 100 pounds, getting sober‚ but I’m not sure anything has been as personally satisfying as the day that I had a Missed Connection posted about me.

If you’re not familiar, Missed Connections is the section on Craigslist where dudes post about hot girls they saw but were too afraid to talk to, and vice-versa. The idea of being chosen, spotted out of all the rest as uniquely attractive and compelling is like a low-rent fairytale that takes place on the R train instead of in a castle. Keep reading »

10 Tips On How To Have A Sexy Christmas With Your S.O.

When you think about it, all the decadence and pleasure wrapped up in Christmas make it a rather sexy holiday. So many yuletide activities—eating chocolates, spending time in front of a roaring fire in your pajamas, gift-giving—naturally lead to romantic moments. At least they do in holiday movies like “When Harry Met Sally,” “Love, Actually” and “The Family Stone,” where falling in love is the true Christmas miracle. If you’re already in love, though, how do you rev up the Christmastime passion? We can think of at least 10 ways for you and your partner to put the x in your X-MAS this year. Keep reading »
