Sassy sophisticated relationship advice for real women everywhere: dating advice, love advice, and more!

For The Week Of November 1-7, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

This week your sage advice will bring on brilliant consequences for a certain someone and for that (as in him finally beginning to get the scope of your mental prowess), he’ll be even crazier about ravaging the enigma that is your body. Of course, being slow on the uptake has never been a teaser for you, so how you play with this ball in your court will be solely up to your discretion.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Your five senses will be working on overdrive, so don’t waste them on anyone you don’t want to see, smell, feel, hear and taste 24-7, as all that you experience now is fuel for your creative senses, which can lead you to brilliant ideas and professional breakthroughs as well. Yes, once you get the ball rolling in the right manner, seems its chain reaction can make all fall into place.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You’ll have had it with beating yourself up over things you want and don’t have. Now it’s time to see what’s right in front of you is incredible and more fantastical than you first assumed. Yes, a change of heart is coming for the better and all the love and light you dreamt of will start to feel possible — and not in that scary Danielle Staub kind of way.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Not everyone is going to get with your aggression or passion, and for them, too bad. Avoid holding yourself back for anyone else now, as that is going to make you feel the ire of regret soon enough. You’ve set the pace; now it’s up to them to keep up or not. If not, no problem, there’s always another who can catch up — so don’t dumb yourself down!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

If so-and-so can’t say it to your face, there is no reason you can’t turn the tables on them and get back in theirs. You’re going to have to defend yourself now, as someone around you is going to be acting out in all kinds of shady ways. However, once you set your foot down and show them what you’ve got, the respect and power you deserve is yours for the taking.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You never thought you would be the kind to get jealous of your boo, but when you come down with a bout of the “have and have-nots,” you’ll be all about underestimating yourself. Whatever. Go with it and run through all those negative feelings, because only after you purge it all is when you can finally start rebuilding it too.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You won’t be able to see straight with lust going right into your brain and having you feel as if you are living an alternate universe. The good news is that it is real and you’ve earned every second of it! So forget asking too many questions, because ruining the vibe now with anything other than indulgence will forever put a wrench into your sexy little monkey works.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Just when you thought you knew what was happening and with whom, in comes a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde moment when your honey’s actions will seem as if they come out of left field and make you wonder what in the hell he or she might be smoking. Luckily for some though, this may mean a fun twist of events rather than an aggravating one.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Being chill in love is fine, but being complacent is not. Hello, time to realize not all is perfect in paradise and you may be slowly sliding down so-and-so’s priority list. Either or, to avoid a tragic end, time to add some spice to your current romantic bouillabaisse and start stirring the pot, as it’s all in your hands now to get the flavor back.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Sit back and relax. The less you stress yourself out about things, the clearer the answers are on what you need to do. Yes, this is your time to work smart, not hard, and the only way you can be at your cleverest is at your quietest — which is something new for you, but will prove to be interesting, informative and indispensable.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Just when you thought your lip-gloss was going to waste and that certain someone was forever in the “do not disturb” bin, in comes a surprise that will make you do a fast double take. Seems all mysteries aren’t so easily solved, as there are a few more clues that’ll pop up, and by following up on them, you may just crack this whole case and make it your own.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

This is your time to win over some points with your boo’s family, so clear out your schedule and start putting in some dates that will start giving you some clout in the eyes of those who will matter the most. This is your time to really start sealing the deal. Once you’ve won the kingpins over, it’ll be easy street.

Dear Wendy: “I Gave My BFF A Place To Stay And Now I Feel Taken Advantage Of”

My best friend of 11 years has been living with my fiancé and me for the past two months because she’s having marital issues, and after a year of marriage isn’t sure she wants to be married anymore. I have been nothing but supportive, not judging her. She has been living with us for free (including food) as she has to still pay half her mortgage and household bills. In the beginning of all this, she had started a “flirtation” with a guy at work, meeting him for dinner, and talking to him every day after work and before bed. His true colors started to show so she slowly moved away. Since then, she has started texting someone we work with, and being secretive about it. One night she said she’d be home around 10, but didn’t come back until 1:30. She said she had been home hanging out with her husband and fell asleep on the couch. I think she was with the new guy. Today, when she was in the shower, I checked her texts and there is definitely something going on with them. I feel hurt and like I can’t trust her. We opened our home to her and I feel like she is abusing my trust. I know I should not have looked at her texts, but my gut told me something was going on. I talked to my fiancé about it and he wants to tell her to leave. I don’t want to send her packing, but at the same time I am feeling very used. What should I do? — Feeling Taken Advantage Of

The Dos And Don’ts Of A New Relationship

The beginning of a relationship can be a tricky course to navigate. Guys (like me) aren’t so good at guessing what women think or want, and our stupidity can lead to otherwise easily avoidable arguments. Setting some basic rules with your new flame may help you get past the small stuff and start enjoying your lives together.

Here are ten guidelines to smooth the road with your new beau. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “Are Some People Meant To Be Single Forever?”

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 being anti-relationships, dealing with a roommate’s bad dating choices, and how to read a math major. Keep reading »

What To Do If You’re Afraid Of Getting Married

I had always been sure I wanted to get married, and the longer I dated Dean, the more sure I was that he was the right one for me. That is … until I got engaged.

Dean’s proposal wasn’t a surprise. I was too nosy to not know it was happening, and I enthusiastically said yes the moment he asked. However, once it happened (in a sweet and thoughtful way, I should add), I began to feel these nagging questions eating away at me: Did I really want to be married? Would we be any good at it?

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Doesn’t Love Me”

I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year and a few months. We moved in with other a year ago. It’s pretty serious, and we plan to travel together this fall and move to a new country together. I would say it’s a very happy and healthy relationship. The problem is I’ve repeatedly told him that I love him, but he can’t seem to say it back. When we discussed it, he said he doesn’t feel the same way! In my past, I had one boyfriend for four years, and he constantly told me he loved me, but then it ended horribly (he cheated on me) and now with my new boyfriend, he treats me like a princess and we both feel great together, but he never says he loves me. My boyfriend is also 14 years older than me and only had about one long relationship which didn’t even last as long as we’ve been together. Does that say anything about him? I can’t understand if I should be worried or go by the common phrase: “actions speak louder than words.” I know they are three silly words, but they would bring us even closer if they were said. — Waiting For Love
