Couples Share A Psychic Connection

For outsiders it can be really annoying when couples finish each other’s sentences or exchange one of those “I know what you’re thinking” looks. According to a new study, some couples really do share a kind of psychic connection. Researchers found that couples’ brains actually start to sync up when they are really in sync. After time, happy couples may start to share brain patterns and their nervous systems may even start to operate in harmony to help them understand each other’s thoughts and feelings better. (New pickup line: “I want our nervous systems to sync.”) When a couple gets to this level of harmony, they reach a sort of altered state where they share a sixth sense. My question: If one part of a couple sees dead people, does the other as well? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Fixated On The Fantasy” 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 “Fixated on the Fantasy,” the woman whose new boyfriend was everything she thought she wanted, but she couldn’t shake the feeling that something was “off.” She worried that she simply wasn’t used to dating nice guys and so she didn’t recognize a happy relationship when she found it or if she simply wasn’t into him. After the jump, found out if she figured it out and whether she’s still with the guy. Keep reading »

For The Week Of September 27-October 3, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

This week there will be lots of exciting offers bombarding you. Your instincts will be working overtime to weed through it all so you can keep yourself grounded. Seems everybody will want to sell you their ideals, but reality will have its own ideas. Not to say your week is going to be all hype, but be weary of what sounds too good to be true.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You don’t have to play superhero everyday. This week is more about adjusting than trying to start anything new. Go ahead, coast. Feel out the options and test your intuition, as trying to figure out how you feel about where you’re going is more important than anything else that might be on your plate now. Yes, set your own pace and let yourself be free.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

The world has a funny way of working out messes for you. So, while you think you may be in boiling water at the start, realize things will simmer down by the end and have you feeling ultra-chill about having mastered a new level of control. Seems the karma you’ve stockpiled will start to show signs that it does have redeeming value. For that, you can thank your lucky stars.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Your resilience is necessary now, as the pressures are mounting to crazy levels that have you wondering, “Why?” Yes, it’s no walk in the park, but it’s nothing you can’t face, as you have been to hell and back a few times and survived swimmingly. So, for times like these, remember who you are and fight this fight like only you know how.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You can’t please all the people all the time, so when someone is acting up on purpose to try to make you look the fool, that is when you have to throw down the gauntlet and put social etiquette aside; some people really do need to be humiliated in public to be shown that they aren’t all that. This week you’re in the perfect place to give it to them and give it to them good.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

If you take the higher road, you will come out the winner. Getting the glare from up there will make you look extra sexy to that special someone. No, it’s not every day when someone gets the hots for those deeper, moral sides to you. So when this turn of events happens, savor every drop.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Remember, you should have nothing to hide when it comes to how you feel. Instead of trying to give your messages through sign language, come clean directly. After all, it’s nothing that someone doesn’t already know on some level, but at least getting it out on the table will give you the real chance you are looking for.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You thought you knew all you needed to know about that certain someone, but surprises are in store and may shock you. Not to say it’ll be bad, as good surprises can also happen, but it will depend on what’s been happening in your current state of affairs. What will happen this week will be the nail in the coffin in a totally excellent way or in that final way. No in-betweens.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Throw all your cares away. Now it’s all about you and recharging your batteries. Seems you’ve gone full circle with your emotions and the only way to come to any solution is to separate yourself from reality. If this means a spa day or a mini-vacation, book it despite any budget issues. After all, you wouldn’t want to go against the universe, would you?

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

If you can’t dream a little dream, what’s the point? Yes, realize you’ve got yourself a diamond in the rough and to unleash its magic, you’ll need to stretch your imagination to see how it is ideal. While you can wish all you want for that perfect package, know that waiting list is long and with no guarantees.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Put your ego aside – this is the only way you’re going to get what you want from your relationship. You can’t expect the best and not take responsibility for your worst. Sure, you might feel uneasy about particular issues, but acting out isn’t going to cure a thing. For now, understand cupid is on your side, so play nice, as only you can be your own worst enemy.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Honesty is your best policy to deal with the confusion that has been swirling around you and your honey. This week, to avoid further complications, let it all out; the passion that will come through your monologues will get each of you heard. Besides getting your love back on track, chances are you’ll open up dialogues that’ll finally unlock discussions you’ve been dying to have.

Dear Wendy: “Are Men Turned Off By Strong Women?”

It’s time again for a “Shortcuts” weekend. For every question, I’ll give my advice in two sentences or less, because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss “alpha-females,” ending a bad relationship, releasing pent-up emotions, and how much to confess about one’s past. Keep reading »

Today we discuss kinky boyfriends, pushy moms, outdated relationships, and annoying roomies. Keep reading »

15 Romantic Gestures She’ll Hate

The men’s site ModernMan.com recently compiled a funny list of “5 Romantic Gestures She’ll Hate.” Unlike a lot of articles on men’s websites that purport to understand women, I actually found this list to be totally accurate. Among the romantic gestures women will actually loathe? Homemade “coupons” good for “backrubs,” buying her items she needs (a new vacuum!) rather than wants, and jumbotron proposals. But Modern Man missed several other romantic gestures women actually despise. Here are 15 more. Keep reading »
