The Bad Girlfriend Calls Out The Wrong Name

Maybe you’ve never admitted it out loud, but we all have the capacity to be cruel. The Bad Girlfriend has the capacity and then some. She’s a friend of ours who we love for being trustworthy and smart, funny and exceedingly loyal…to her girlfriends, that is. But boyfriends? That’s another story. We pity the fools who end up on her arm—give it a few months, a year, even three, and suddenly they won’t know what hit ‘em. We don’t expect you to love her, but we do expect that you may, begrudgingly, see a bit of yourself in her bad deeds.

There are many times in life when you get busted for doing something wrong and freeze -up in fear— you know that feeling when your heart seems to stop, a wave of hot panic washes over you, and your bladder control muscles stop working properly? This can happen anytime, such as when you’re 14 and get caught smoking by your principal, or when security guards stop you at the front door of the mall when you have an unpaid for sweater balled up in your bag. (Ok, maybe that was just me.) But nothing will prepare you for having this feeling when you’re in the middle of having sex. There’s only really one thing that can cause this panic: calling out the wrong person’s name in the middle of the deed. Keep reading »

Bad Date Hall Of Fame: The Drunk Dirty Talker

Bad dates suck. But let’s face it, after a certain length of time, they can be pretty funny in retrospect. In honor of the grand tradition of laughing uproariously at disastrous dates, we’re taking submissions for The Bad Date Hall Of Fame. Send yours to tips@thefrisky.com – and if we publish yours, we’ll send you a pair of Frisky underpants. After the jump, a bad date shows up wasted, doesn’t pay for his BLT-dinner, and engages in weird pedophile dirty talk. Keep reading »

Bejeweled: A Nintendo Engagement

When you find a girl that loves her Nintendo DS as much as you, even a gamer knows not to play games — that is, unless you’re trying to propose. Bernie Peng knew the way to his woman’s heart was through her favorite video game, Bejeweled, so it seemed fitting that he recreate the game to flash his marriage proposal on screen. And she said yes! Aw, they go together like Yoshi and Birdo. [Gimundo] Keep reading »

The Pitfalls: Sittin’ Bitch

Being in a secure, drama-free relationship has its perks: you don’t really have to shave your legs in winter unless you feel like it; sex is always at the ready, if you want it; and there’s always someone to call on for backup if your Tivo is acting up and you just have to record Gossip Girl. But being part of a “we” has its downsides, usually things you take for granted as a singleton. Take, for example, the seemingly unspoken couple rule that says when traveling with a boyfriend, the girlfriend will always — unless blessed by a relatively empty plane that guarantees a full row — be sitting bitch.

Relationship Novice: The Ex-Files

Unless you started your new relationship as a virgin, chances are you have some semblance of an “ex.”

So what happens to all the “exes” when you get into a serious relationship? Are they like the Junior absorbency tampons in your multi-pack, destined to go unused for all your menstruating days? And what if you’ve actually developed a “friendship” with this feminine Q-tip? Well, the answer is harsh…but simple. Once you get into a serious relationship, your ex “friends” are going to fade away, and they should. Here’s my rationale: Keep reading »

Who Doesn’t Love A Good Kiss?

I just stumbled upon the most adorable site called BestKisses.com which is just filled with pictures of people, animals, things, whatever, kissing. You can submit your own photo too and they may just put it up alongside photos of camels kissing, and babies and dads kissing, and couples kissing. Do you think they will accept this photo of me kissing myself? [BestKisses.com] Keep reading »

Love 101: Can You Forgive A Cheater?

At this point, it’s redundant to dissect the various political sexcapades of late (although, if you can’t get enough, there’s a great new book of um, politician erotica out called Sex for America). But all that talk of cheating has many of us civilians looking over our partners’ shoulders. And I think every woman cringed a little when we saw Silda, tear-stained yet stoic, standing by the man that publicly shamed her. Would you do the same? Keep reading »

More Public Transportation Love

A bus driver had a crush on one of his passengers. They started dating, and two years later he proposed, asking her to be his “bus wife” (before he knew her name, his friends referred to her as “bus girl). Click here to watch to video. [CNN] Keep reading »

The Monogamist: Comparison Schmarison

If another couple jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?

A few years ago, I was designated driver during a long night of excessive drinking. My friend, we’ll call her Monica, was in the passenger’s seat and her boyfriend, uh, Joe, was in the back. Joe said something that pissed Monica off and a screaming match ensued, complete with swipes from front-to-back-seat and vice-versa. It was loud, violent and whiskey-soaked and it escalated to the point where Joe threatened to jump out, even opening the car door while we were going about 40 on a highway entrance ramp. This rare, too-intimate look into their relationship was something I never want to see again. Keep reading »
