Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Hangs Out With ‘Mean Girls’”

A couple months ago I entered into a relationship with an awesome guy whom I work with (not necessarily the best call, but what can you do!). So far, things have been pretty good. We have the ability to keep it professional at work and we share the same sense of humor, etc.. The problem is, a couple girls in our office also like him, but are very catty about it. They’re the kind of girls who attempt to be your friend in order to get info. Recently, a coworker whom I am also friends with overheard these girls saying nasty things about me and that they hope my relationship would end. I told this to my boyfriend, but he still continues to spend time with them at work and outside of work (without me!). I told him I didn’t want it to influence their friendship — I would just hope he would see that it really hurt my feelings, and any girl who would say that is not as good of a friend of his as he thought. I’m reluctant to tell him that this is making me crazy, but I don’t know what else to do! — Jealous Coworker

8 Rules For Kissing Off Your One-Night Stand

It’s hard to willingly endorse the one-night stand because it either goes one way or another: a one-nighter can be blissful, but it can also be a cringe-inducing horror. While a lot of things can go wrong with your quickie, most of the problems will occur during the aftermath—the morning after, and maybe even the few days after that. Here, some things that you just. shouldn’t. ever. do. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Lost In Translation” 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 “Lost In Translation,” a 26-year-old woman whose language exchange IM buddy from France was planning to make a special trip to Calgary to see her while he was in Toronto for a wedding. “I know he’s not rich, and he doesn’t seem to be coming to Calgary for any other reason. I’m hard-pressed to believe that someone would go that far out of his way just for a short platonic meeting. What is he really expecting of me? Should I ask my boyfriend to join us?” She wrote. After the jump, find out if she went through with seeing him. Keep reading »

For The Week Of November 8-14, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Who cares if the only thing you like about your latest catch is how they look and it makes you unable to think of anything else? Lust is a perfectly fine way to get things started, as it’s at least a start. If you find that after a while that is all that is there, then you’ll be bored in time and all will work itself out. For now, appreciate the splendor and live in the moment.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Temptations will be streaming in from all directions and it’ll be harder for you to reign in your discipline, as all you want to do is say, “Yes.” However, do realize that sometimes it’s more about having choices than actually traveling down every option that’s the sexy part, because in the end, consequences for over-indulging are never nice.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

This is your time to break patterns. Even if you can’t even think of other ways of doing what you do, stop and do nothing. Whatever the case, this is your time to pause and reconfigure your direction and forge a new path. Not to say you have to have all the answers right now, but just one step in an alternate direction will do and all the rest will fall slowly into place.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You won’t be able to hold yourself back from the genius you will be feeling, so it’s a matter of keeping up your energy to go with the flow. However, it will take some group efforts to make your vision real, so plot and plan your strategy with detail, because as long as you have a good blueprint to work from, success is inevitable.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Forget trying to spend too much alone time with your baby to figure out what is going on with him, instead realize the source to all your answers lies with his friends and this is the week they will be more than willing to aid and abet you in all that you need to know. It seems you have more than a few allies wishing for the same outcome as you.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

If you want anything to happen the way you want, you’re going to have to get assertive and blunt. That someone is willing to listen and wants to do right by you, but without some direction, it’s hard for them to hit it just the way you like it. While this might be a bit confusing to articulate early on and even a little uncomfortable, after a while, you’ll wonder why you were ever that shy.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Admit power rocks your world and make your choices accordingly, as there is no time now to feel sorry for another and expect to be the light of their life that lifts them out of their despair. As it must be, it’s every man and woman for himself or herself now. And for you, time to reach further to the top, because where you’ll find what you truly need is not where you currently stand.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Exaggerate your needs! Not to say you have to lie, but when it comes to explaining what you want from another, you’ll have to go up and beyond the norm into fantastical. Only when you set the bar so high will that person be able to jump to a place that you can live with. Otherwise, setting them up with the truth won’t actually inspire enough momentum. Odd, but true.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

It’s all about sitting back and letting things go on their own, to see what arises. This isn’t the time to push too hard for anything, as it won’t give you a truthful portrayal of whom you are playing with. After all, when no one is looking, isn’t leaving someone to their own devices the only way to see if their game is even worth it? This time around, most definitely!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Things get intense when those conversations that lead you out of confusion and into peace, love and giddiness begin. Yes, this is a week when love and commitment will play a crucial role in your life and most likely for the better. However, remember, it takes two to make a thing go right, so don’t hold back. It’ll be your purging that will be the start to this new foundation.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Emotionally speaking, change will be causing a tension knot that will be driving you mad. However, don’t be a control freak, as sometimes a new route is just what it takes to make things more interesting, even if a few turns of it will seem too much to bare. Remember, nothing is ever finite in this crazy game called love.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You won’t be able to stop your mouth from going off without a filter, but don’t worry, it’ll be fantastic. Seems there are more than a few things you need to get off your chest about your current situation and seems the only way to be fully honest with it all is by snapping. Thankfully, when you get into your power like this, not only is it effective but hot as hell too.

Ask The Astrosexologist: “Should I Go For A Second Shot With My Libra Ex?”

I am an Aries and I was seeing a Libra. When he got accepted to college abroad, he moved. Before he went, he had said he loved me and could never forget me. We tried a long-distance relationship for a while, but it didn’t work out, especially for me. I don’t know who was the one with the worse communication skills, but yeah, it was rocky… Sometimes we wouldn’t talk to each other for months. I decided to call it off and he agreed because he said he’d do anything to make me happy. However, we kept in touch through mails and IM only, no phone calls.

Apparently, I am still stuck on that relationship because I never put my 100 percent in any other guy I have been with after him. I have been on lots of first dates, but can count the second dates on one hand. He still mails me once in a while and I have this nagging feeling that he might be getting over me because he has started to see this girl for sometime now. However, I am sure if I say anything about being back together, he might consider. Should I ? Do you think it would be worth all that trouble and heartache for all three people involved? I am miserable thinking about that one guy who had pleaded his “undying love and commitment” … the one I let go. – Empty

Dear Wendy: “When’s The Best Time To Discuss STDs?”

After getting dumped by my boyfriend of five years (and some time to get over that), I’ve recently re-entered the dating world. So far it’s a lot like I remember it to be; however, the only difference is that this time I’m not a virgin, and neither are most of the people I’ve been out with. And while I’m not quite ready to leap into bed with anyone, I’m becoming increasingly confused about the appropriate time to broach the subject of getting tested for STDs. Is there a way to bring up the topic without being offensive? I feel like I’m being a bit of a prude here, but after working for a college health center for a few years, and seeing the damage that STDs can do, I’m just not interested in putting my health at risk, even in the name of love. — Cleared for Takeoff
