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 »

8 Ways To Get Closure When A Relationship Ends

8 Ways To Get Closure

If anyone ever figured out how to bottle the ability to achieve closure after a relationship ends, they would be rich and famous. As someone who has stumbled in finding closure a few times in my life, all I can say for sure is how it feels. It feels peaceful; it feels freeing, like taking a rock out of your shoe. It is the moment a chapter in the book of your life has been written, read, reread, and filed away for posterity. No matter what the situation, closure is a feeling that comes from within. Sometimes you have the other person there to debrief with and that can be helpful, like when I met up with an ex-boyfriend to compare notes on our relationship. It was an incredibly therapeutic experience that helped me close the door on the relationship once and for all. But let’s be honest, it hardly ever happens like that … Keep reading »
