How To Go To A Party Alone

It’s holiday time again, which for me means lots of parties to go to … solo. My first instinct is usually to try to snag a pal to bring with me to party crash, but recently, I was invited to a party where the host explicitly instructed guests not to bring a plus one. I was dreading showing up there, thinking it would be uncomfortable, but once I arrived, I embraced it and ended up having a great time. After I deftly extricated myself from a dull conversation with an awkward woman with a neck twitch, I hit it off with a group of dudes with nerdy glasses who shared my love of stupid dance moves. Needless to say, I have a new appreciation for going to parties alone. After the jump, some tips for making the best of a stag situation. Add your suggestions in the comments. Keep reading »

Facebook’s New Function? Divorce!

A new survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that one in five divorces cite Facebook activity as evidence of cheating, proof the spouse has gone crazy town, or documentation of irreconcilable differences. What? “He likes to play Farmville, I don’t know who he is anymore.” If only. Apparently, most of the problems seem to stem from people reconnecting with their old flames on the site and then flirtin’ it up. Hey, it was from Facebook chats with his mistress that Eva Longoria found out Tony Parker was unfaithful to her early on in their marriage (what led to Eva filing for divorce recently, though, was her finding flirty text messages on Tony’s cell phone). But seriously, checking out old crushes is, like, 50 percent of the reason I have a page! Although, sadly (for me), most of them are gay now. Womp-womp! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Friend Crush Fell For Another Girl

When my guy friend recently became single, I saw a lot more of him. In fact, we were hanging out a lot and while sober. Seriously. We would just talk and the conversation was easy. So easy I was beginning to wonder if he was trying hard to get in my pants. I mean, he’s basically everything on paper I would want and my mom would love him, too. When does that magic ever happen?! He is manly, handsome, smart, and a good listener, but shy. Nagging in the back of my brain every time we hung out was this voice that kept saying, “Land this guy, you dumb slut!” Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s A Bore”

About six months ago, I met this guy, Alex, who I thought was perfect. He is about to graduate law school, he is unbelievably kind, respectful and empathetic, and also the sex is great. But I have slowly begun to realize that Alex is very safe — meaning he’s not spontaneous and not very funny – he’s sort of boring, really. Right around the time that I was realizing Alex’s true colors, I went on a trip to my childhood best friend Harry’s cabin in the woods. We ended up having so much fun and for the first time since we’ve been friends I’ve started to have feelings for him. Nothing romantic happened between Harry and me, but I’m not sure what I should do with my feelings. I feel very guilty being in a relationship with one person when I can’t stop thinking of my best friend. Should I tell both men how I’m feeling? I’m worried that if I tell Harry how I feel that I will lose his friendship, or that it will change things between us. And I’m worried that if I tell Alex he will resent me and think that I was playing a game with him. Please help me make sense of my mixed up emotions. — Between Two Men

Is This Super Cute Love Song For You?


One talented boyfriend, in a long-distance relationship with his honey, got a couple of his friends together to make a music video love letter for his girlfriend. The catch is, he’s not posting the YouTube link to her Facebook, or emailing her, or even telling her it’s out there in the webiverse. He just set the song adrift on the internet, in the hopes that somehow, someway, his long-distance lover will see the vid, recognize his voice, and know he loves her big time! Aw, mega adorbs overload! So, we’re doing our part to send it on its way. Here’s hoping she’s a Frisky girl … [The Hairpin] Keep reading »

Laptop Or Love: Which Would You Choose?

According to a new Match.com survey, 48 percent of singles said that finding someone special was their biggest stress during the holiday season. I’m sure this is totally accurate data considering Match.com has no vested interest in this topic. More interesting though … about 60 percent of singles said they would rather have a kiss on New Year’s Eve than a new laptop computer. What?! Seriously? I would totally take the laptop. A) I really need one and B) a kiss is so fleeting and C) the laptop will last for at least a few solid years, much longer than most relationships and certainly longer than a damn kiss. I wonder if the stats are the same for a desktop or an iPad or if those 60 percent just purchased a new laptop? [NY Post] Keep reading »
