Girl On Girl: Is Being Out In The Workplace A Bad Idea?

Since I work out in a boxing gym and am one of the only girls there, I always try to keep my head down, work hard and not engage too much with the guys, some of whom have serious boundary problems. So, a few weeks ago, when one of the trainers said, “So, what’s your boyfriend’s name?” I quickly responded, “I don’t have a boyfriend.” Unfortunately, this guy was persistent and asked, “Why not?”

Dear Wendy: “Rumor Has It My New Guy’s A Notorious Cheater”

I’ve recently moved to a new town to start graduate school and met a cool guy in my major who I’ve been seeing for a few weeks now. He’s very sweet and there is a strong desire there to keep things moving. However, when talking to another friend, she told me that my guy is known as a serial cheater. I vowed to her that I wouldn’t get too serious about him. I’ve been cheated on once in the past and it ruined me for quite a while. I really don’t know what to do in this situation. If I could keep myself from getting attached to him, I would, but things seem to be going really well between us. So when the time comes when we do get more serious, do I bring up what I know about his past? Do I listen to my friend and not keep him as a serious boyfriend? Or should I run for the hills right now before I get too close to him? I know that I might be jumping the gun with this question since we haven’t been seeing each other for very long, but I’d rather have a plan of action now so I can keep my heart safe later. — CheatSkate

This November, I’m moving in with my boyfriend, and it will be my third time living with a significant other. Needless to say, the first two times didn’t work out. At 22, my first love moved into my already furnished apartment; we split soon after. Later, at 25, my ex and I signed a lease for a one-bedroom in upper Manhattan. We had basically no furniture, so we embarked on an adventure to the Ikea in Paramus, New Jersey. That was the beginning of our demise. Keep reading »
