Life After Dating: My Husband’s Best Friends Are Women & I Think It’s Great

Last week, our new dude dating columnist Dater XY wrote a provocative piece about how his best friend is a woman and some ladies he meets online dating can’t handle that. With a few exceptions, commenters on that piece agreed Dater XY is shit outta luck. “I don’t see a way out of this. I…

Dater XY: My Best Friend Is A Woman

My best friend is a woman. My best friend in college was a woman. In fact, a majority of my closest friends since college have been women. And this presents a problem in my dating life.

There isn’t one single reason why I have more female friends than male ones and if you…

The Pros & Cons Of Different Travel Partners

I believe that traveling is always a good experience (even a terrible vacation will give you stories to tell for years to come), but who you choose to travel with will make a big difference in what kind of experience you have. A cross-country road trip with your three best friends will be very different…

6 Things You Miss When You Move Away From Your Best Friend

My best friend Katelyn just came to visit me in Nashville for a long weekend. When we both lived in Portland, we were pretty much inseparable, and ever since I moved away a year ago, it’s been hard. We’ve been doing pretty good at the long distance friendship thing, but man, seeing her in perso…

Jennifer Lawrence’s Best Friend Laura Simpson Tells Her Side Of The Story About Jen’s Fall On The Oscars Red Carpet

I needed no additional proof that Jennifer Lawrence is the least affected, “actress-y” actress in Hollywood. But now that I’ve read her best friend Laura Simpson’s firsthand account on MySpace (which is publishing articles now, apparently?) about being Jen’s date to the Oscars on Sunday night, it’s set in stone. Jen and Laura met seven year…

Watch These 100-Year-Old BFFs Discuss Selfies, Twerking & Justin Bieber

I can only hope that at the age of 100, I still have my best friend around to gossip about pop culture phenomena in the year 2079. Irene and Alice, who have been BFFs for 94 (!) years, appeared on “The Steve Harvey Show” this week to share their incisive observations on things like selfies

Debate This: Should Mothers And Daughters Be Best Friends?

We all agree that it’s lovely when mothers and daughters can maintain a close relationship, but we disagree when it comes to how close it should be — both as girls and adult women. There are some mothers and daughters who proudly call themselves “best friends,” others who always stay within their “parent” and “child” roles, and…

10 Ways To Maintain A Long Distance Friendship

As you know, I’m moving from Portland to Nashville in a couple weeks (gulp). I’ve started selling most of my stuff and getting all the logistics figured out, and everything’s going pretty well so far. There’s one thing, though, that’s been weighing on me since I began the process of relocating my life: I’m freaking

Girl Talk: All My BFFs Turn Out Crazy, But I Still Want A New One

It starts early. Little girls give each other broken heart necklaces for their birthdays while boys have paintball parties. While boys are encouraged to participate in sports and group activities, us girls are pushed to more one-on-one activities like tea parties or making Barbies have sex under a blanket. Studies show that there are different…

Girl Talk: My Bully Was My Best Friend

I met Rebecca when I was eight and forced by my parents to join an AYSO soccer team called the “Killer Bees” because my mom thought it imperative that even scrawny girls who much preferred watching late night re-reruns of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” should get out and enjoy bitter winds of Chicago fall…

Dear Wendy: “I Think I’m In Love With My Best Friend”

It’s time again for “Shortcuts.” For every question, I’ll give my advice in three 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 falling for…

Girl Talk: My Friend Crush Fell For Another Girl

When my guy friend recently became single, I saw a lot more of him. In fact, we were hanging out a lot and while sober. Seriously. We would just talk and the conversation was easy. So easy I was beginning to wonder if he was trying hard to get in my pants. I mean, he&#8217…

Her Best Friend Is A Dude

It’s not unusual for men and women to be friends. You certainly have female friends, and your girlfriend no doubt has male friends, but if her best friend is a guy, well, that’s a different story.

Whether or not men and women can truly be friends — best friends — has long been a…

Why You Should Date Your Best Friend

There’s nothing quite like feeling a spark of attraction between you and someone you just met. Lately though, we’ve been wondering whether it’s better to date a friend, or at least somebody we’ve known longer than just a couple of weeks, and who knows more about us than just our name and phone number. Sure,…

I Love You Like A Sister

Women can frequently be heard exclaiming, “I love her like a sister!” I shake my head. No, you can’t love your best friend like a sister. A sister’s love is separate from any other kind of love. A sister knows not only your entire history, but also what your thoughts and emotions were at every…
