Online Dating Site Thinks We’re ALL Cougars

“I’m a cougar. She’s a cougar. We’re all cougars!” Really? All of us are cougars? When did cougars (who, by the way, don’t look a day over 25 in this commercial) take over the online dating scene? CougarLife.com is exactly what’s wrong with the term “cougar.” Too bad I’m going to be singing this stupid song all day. Help! [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Dater X: Single Loneliness Rears Its Ugly Head

I spotted Brown Eyes across the street, leaning against a wall outside the restaurant. He looked adorable in his thick scarf, fiddling with his iPod. As I walked up, he smiled and greeted me with a sweet kiss on the lips. It was the kind of hello we’ve never given each other before—after all, for the past two years we’ve been just friends. “This date is gonna be good,” I thought.

Cut to an hour and a half later. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: The Deal With Post-Breakup Friendships

About three months ago I broke up with my first really serious boyfriend. It was messy, because I wasn’t expecting it. We’ve since started talking again, and I’d even call him a friend — albeit a long-distance one. I went through a really rough period a few weeks ago, and he was incredibly supportive through it all. I know he values my friendship very highly, too. The problem, as you’ve probably guessed, is that the more often I talk to him, the more I find myself wanting him back, while he has made it clear he doesn’t feel this way at all. We were really good friends before we started dating, and I appreciate his friendship too much to completely cut him out of my life, but I have a feeling that’s the only way I’m going to get completely over him. My saving grace is that he lives across the country from me, so IM, texting, and phone calls are our only interactions. So my question, I guess, is what to do — cut him out and lose a great friend in order to protect my heart? Or, keep talking to him and try to keep up my guard so I don’t get hurt again? — Friends Without Benefits

Dear Wendy: “We Broke Up. Should I Return My Birthday Gift?”

I got out of a very rocky two-year LDR about a month ago. About two months prior to the breakup (and while I was desperately trying to make the relationship work), I visited him for my birthday and he gave me an Xbox 360. When I finally managed to break up with him — after trying at least five times — he took it very poorly. We talked the next day and he told me he’d broken or thrown away everything I’d given him. We didn’t talk again until yesterday, when I got a text from him saying, “Send me back the Xbox.” Flustered, I responded, “So you can break it, too?” He called me and said he’d tell the police I’d stolen it, and his mom was “willing to be a witness” of the theft. Now, I have no idea if the police would get involved (especially since we live in different states), and I probably shouldn’t have accepted it knowing the relationship was doomed, but should I give it back now? I’d prefer to keep it — I’ve bought games for it already and I can’t afford a new one — but I also don’t want to be arrested! — Hopefully Not a Thief

Girl Talk: I Googled My Crush And Found Out The Worst

It started out as a normal, 21st century love story: I met Paul*, I liked Paul, so I Googled Paul. We’d been hanging out for two months, and I knew he was fluent in French, played guitar, and liked India Pale Ale. Now I was ready for the good stuff, the stuff only the internet could tell me. I was hoping to find mentions of him in school newspapers, signs of previous girlfriends, and, if I was lucky, the holy grail of Googling: his high school LiveJournal. Keep reading »
