Jan Brady Gives Dating Advice

Eve Plumb, better known to the world as Jan Brady from “The Brady Bunch,” is starring in a new off-Broadway show, “Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating & Marriage,” where she plays an advice columnist. To promote it, Eve gave some of her own dating tips in The New York Post. I’d happily take advice from the forgotten middle sister. Because Marcia got more guys and Cindy was a cutie with a lisp, Jan had to be more strategic about getting male attention. My favorite nuggets of wisdom from Jan Brady, after the jump!

Dater X: Why Does Rejection Make Us So Angry?

I looked at his profile before I read the email he sent—a rookie online dating mistake. The guy in the photos looked highly attractive—green eyes, a shaved head, a strong, square jaw line, and an impeccable sense of style. In his answers to the cheesy profile questions, he managed to seem funny and charming. I had a good feeling as I finally opened the email he’d sent me.

“Hey gorgeous. Ran across your profile, and you are so my type it’s scary. Hope you don’t mind that I am picturing you naked. You into something casual? Think we’d have mind blowing sex.”

Dear Wendy: “I Can’t Stop Dreaming About My Ex”

I keep dreaming about my first love, in an obsessive, gut-wrenching way, even though I am in a long-term relationship with a man that I really truly love. My current boyfriend is amazing to me and I am really scared I am going to screw things up because of my strange behavior. The dreaming started when I saw my ex for the first time last summer, after not seeing him for three years. In my dreams I am trying to read letters from him that I can never open, or we are having an affair. I always choose my boyfriend in the end, even though there is a part of me that misses my old love. I get that this is a closure issue, but the question is how do I deal with it? Do I seek him (the ex) out to try and make the dreams go away or do I continue to suppress them, which has over the past year only made things worse? I have to do something, because they just won’t stop. — Sleepless in Seattle

What’s Your Post-Breakup Recipe?

I was reading this article where a woman claims her good friend came up with what she calls the perfect post-breakup recipe. Her post-breakup regime includes “a prescription for the anti-insomnia medication Ambien, so she could sleep at last, and a five-point recovery plan that included a rigorous exercise program and a few nights of passion with a beautiful stranger.” I recently broke up with a guy that I was dating casually for about six months. I was forced to dump this dude because while I liked so many things about him, he didn’t want a relationship and I did. Plain and simple. It felt like it was the appropriate moment in our relationship — and in my love life — to take a stand against all illegitimate dating situations. I’ve done enough ambiguous dating/hooking up already. I’m going for all or nothing now. Keep reading »
