Girl Talk: I Can’t Handle Too Much Female Energy

I am 25 years old with lots of girlfriends and a sizable collection of purses. Reunions with old pals usually involve squeals or hefty grins and, yes, cute bunnies make me go “aww.” For some girls, these moments of elated feminine energy are non-stop, but I can only take small doses.    

A former tomboy, at 13 I was jumping in mud puddles (still am), and at 18, I was wearing torn jeans with paint spots. It wasn’t until I was 21 that I learned how to walk in high heels. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Has A Teen Cheerleader Fetish”

I’m 28 and in a very loving relationship with my 31-year-old boyfriend of about three years. Recently, I’ve been getting annoyed, or perhaps better stated, creeped out, by his interest in high school girls. Not that he knows any personally — as far as I’m aware — but I know he’s perused photos of high school juniors and seniors on Facebook and he’s been recording high school cheerleading and volleyball shows on ESPN. It’s really starting to bother me as well as make me feel like he’s not turned on by me because I’m no longer in shape like an 18-year-old. I mentioned this to him and he said he would stop, but it’s still really bothering me. What do you think? — Too Old For My Older Man?

Dear Wendy Updates: “The Homewrecker” 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 “The Homewrecker,” whose boyfriend cheated on his ex to be with her and was planning to go to a party she wasn’t invited to where said ex would be. “My issue is,” she wrote, “that as a sign of loyalty, I think my boyfriend should not go to this event that I am actively being excluded from. I fear that he hasn’t made much of an effort to ask the host if I can attend, and my suspicion is that he really wants to go to see his ex and scope out her new boyfriend.” So, did he ask the host if his girlfriend could attend? Did they go to the party together? Did he go alone, or did he skip the whole thing altogether? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »

The Conversacube Makes Dating Awkward People Easier

Crushing on a totally cute dude with absolutely no social skills? Then why not get a Conversacube to make conversation easy? The Conversacube, designed by artist Lauren McCarthy, aims to take the awkwardness out of first dates by providing users with an array of conversation topics. How it works: “As the conversation progresses, each person is personally prompted with directions or lines to keep the conversation running seamlessly with minimal awkward or uncomfortable moments. The microphones monitor audio levels of each participant and the cube responds accordingly, adjusting prompts to enliven, mediate conflict, or balance conversation as necessary.” Yes, we can think of a few guys we’ve dated who could have used this. And no, sadly, it is not actually available on the market. [Neatorama] Keep reading »

Does Your Real-Life Lover Live Up To Your Dream Partner?

From the Tell Us Something We Don’t Know Department: A study from the University of Sheffield and the University of Montpelier (in the U.K. and France, respectively) found that people’s real-life lovers differed drastically from their “dream” companions. Researchers “found that our actual mates differ in height, weight and body mass index from the ones we would describe as ideal.” Yup, that sounds about right.
