Dear Wendy Updates: “Insecure Mess” 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 “Insecure Mess” who wrote in a year ago about feeling like she didn’t deserve her boyfriend of one year because he was so normal while she had so many issues. “I’m constantly thinking that he doesn’t love me, isn’t attracted to me, and is just dating me until he finds someone better. My boyfriend has never given me any reason to feel this way; therefore, I don’t think these feelings are rational at all,” she wrote. After the jump, find out how she’s doing today and get some info that may be of value to you too. Keep reading »

“Best” Pickup Lines Revealed

The dating site studied the pickup lines in nearly 200,000 online dating introductions and discovered what lines are most successful for women of different nationalities. If a woman is British, a man is apparently better off complimenting her legs, while Italian, French, American and Brazilian women want to be told they “dress beautifully.” Spanish and South American ladies like to have their hair praised, while German and Canadian gals appreciate compliments about their skin. Oddly, the line that works best on Dutch and Portuguese women? “You have beautiful ears.” Seriously? I’d have put that one in the camp of worst pickup lines, for sure! The line that was found to get the most response from women as a whole: “You have beautiful lips.” Huh, if that was a guy’s opening line to me before we’d even met face-to-face, there would never be a first date.

For The Week Of December 20-26, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Get as sappy as you need to, as this is the time to really spill your guts in a huge way. If the outcome oddly doesn’t work in your favor, you can always blame it on the eggnog. However, lady luck is with you now, as rolling the dice with bigger bets won’t only make that other get it on a whole new level, but your monologues will also be the best you’ve ever had. Brava!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You’ll literally be a factory of brilliant thinking this week, as genius ideas will be plenty. To make the most of it, throw yourself into party mode, as it’ll give you a greater chance to inspire many — and that feeling will happen to feel better than sex. After all, who wouldn’t love feeling just like Helen of Troy, pre-war?

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

When you’re feeling it, you feel it and can’t stop talking about it. However, telling all your mushy behind-the-scenes stories isn’t sharing to some, but gloating — and who needs to create enemies during the holidays? This week, do your final good deed of the year by showing compassion for bitter souls, but do feel lucky to be able to love as deeply as you do, just more privately.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

We’re all entitled to live it out like a dandy, indulging every last whim. This doesn’t make you a pig either. It makes you the life of the party, if you do it with some sass, which you certainly don’t leave home without. Yes, this week the only practical knowledge you need is: Don’t mix your hard liquor with wine. Otherwise, turn it out all the way, sister. This is your time!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Just when you thought you were pooped, in will come a new wave of energy via someone who will make the holidays for you. Yes, seems someone has been paying attention to whether you’ve been naughty or nice, and has appreciated the balance of sweet and sexy you’ve been bringing … and it seems that much more than just kissing will be happening under your mistletoe.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Emotionally, you’ll feel stuffed. To say the least, sentimentality will be hitting you hard and in all sorts of unexpected ways. You’ll be thinking a lot more of the past and it might cause weird bouts of confusion. Just go with it and purge yourself by running all the scenarios. Once you’re done, it will be obvious that where you are is exactly where you need to be.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’ll be in your element, as your filled-to-the-brim social calendar will surround you with perfect energy. However, pace yourself, as you have lots of faces and places to see. Of course, this may also bring out that possessive side of your boo, but whatever, you can’t be everything to everyone. He’s just going to have to suck it up and learn to share you with the world.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Stay chill, as this isn’t the time to whip out your A-type personality. Yes, this may sound impossible, but know if you want control, you can’t force it. Best to act controlled, as the calmer you appear, the more another will be willing to trust what you’re doing and where you want to go. Sure, this may ultimately be a bait and switch, but whatever it takes to win, right? Right!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

If you want to say something, just say it. There is no point in playing the victim every time, as others do want to know what you feel without the sugar coating. Besides, it would save so much more of your time and agony to take the most direct route, as trying to go around the subject now is what will confuse others anyway.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You’re going to hear a lot of in-between talk that can make you a bit screwy. Just don’t take it all to heart, as sometimes people just suck at communicating. Since you tend to be a maestro with your own words, this can set the bar high, which can mess you up with dealing with those less than. So, do have some patience and know when to just smile pretty when you have to.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You may be feeling a bit more co-dependent these days, but with all the hustle and bustle, who could blame anyone for needing to nestle closer to her or his honey and be a bit of a baby? Sure not your boo, as it seems there will be a sweet simpatico happening between you two over the next few weeks that will make you truly feel like two sweet peas in a very cozy little pod.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

This is going to be the week when being as logical as you possibly can, right down to the tips of your toes, will be the biggest help. You just have to run on rails and get through it, as if it were a course. Not all tasks will be so rewarding, but who has time to judge? Yes, life is going to be moving fast which, remember, happens to be the speed you like.

How Moving In With My Parents Saved My Marriage

A little more than a year ago, a study was released that claimed couples who live together before marriage are more likely to get divorced than couples who don’t shack up before they wed. I found that interesting, as my fiancé had just moved in with me and my parents around the time that study came out. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I’m Dating A Sex Addict”

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 dating a sex addict, signs it’s time to MOA, and how to tell a friend she stinks. Keep reading »
