Waiting To Bone Makes Relationships Better

In the category of crap we know but don’t want to accept, a new study showed that the longer a new couple waits to have sex for the first time, the stronger their relationship is in the long run. The researchers found that couples who boned within one date or one month of dating had the worst relationship outcomes. Why? How? Well, obviously because sex made them wild, raving lunatics unable to make clear-headed decisions about the future of their relationship. I’ve never heard of such a thing and certainly never experienced that. The takeaway here? Assess communication styles, build trust, learn to handle adversity together before hopping in the sack and you will have a more stable, more satisfying relationship with a higher quality of sex. Blah, blah, blah. [Live Science] Keep reading »

Do You Have An Alter Ego?

Confession time. I am a person with lots of alter egos. There’s the Bird With the Broken Wing, Brody, and the Disinterested Flamingo. Does this make me insane? Perhaps. But my alter egos usually spring forth in the name of comedy, especially as a way to make my brother laugh. This holiday season, a new alter ego came out to play. Her name is Sister Robot. While Ami is particular and fussy about what she eats, where she sleeps, etc., Sister Robot is the opposite. She sleeps standing up in a charging dock in the garage and doesn’t even need food because robots don’t eat. Sister Robot is a low-maintenance sibling specifically programmed to go with the flow and make observations that are sure to make brother pee his pants. OK, I know that you think I’m crazy, but I know I’m not the only cook out there with an alter ego. After the jump, other Frisky staffers share theirs. Do you have one? Introduce us to your alter ego in the comments. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I Crashed At My Friend’s Pad For 5 Months And Now She Won’t Talk To Me”

For the last five months I lived with a good friend and her boyfriend while I finished school. They were kind enough to let me crash with them and I’m so thankful they did. However, now that I’m moved out I feel like our friendship is over. I’ve heard through mutual friends that she complained about me being messy, ignoring her, and being awful to live with. She would routinely send me tweets and Facebook messages detailing the various things I did that annoyed her (i.e., snore, nap, have a glass in my room). The thing is, I was always clean. I VERY rarely left a dish unwashed, I cleaned the bathroom, emptied the dishwasher … I’m just at a loss as to why she would stop talking to me. I did really stick to myself while I lived there and didn’t hang out with her and her boyfriend. I didn’t want to invade their space but she never made me feel anything other than it was best to stay away from them. So I did. I’m at the point now where I’ve been evaluating our whole friendship and she really hasn’t been a great friend over the years. But I’m still bothered that somehow she has completely stopped talking to me. Should I contact her to find out why? Or should I just let this die and get over it? We have lots of mutual friends so I don’t want things to be awkward if we no longer talk. I just don’t know where to go from here. — Baffled
