The other day I gave my boyfriend a compliment. “Boo, you are so awesome — you’re like a human salve,” I told him. I said that after we’d gone tubing with 15 of my friends, and he had been kind enough to drive one car of us there, and made an effort to talk to a couple of my friends that he’d never met before. Calling someone a “human salve” sounds really gross, I know, but I meant it in the best of ways. After years of dating difficult, complicated, kind of crappy dudes, I told him, I was super happy to be dating someone who was just so easy.

So, what do I mean by “human salve”?

The other day I had lunch with a work colleague who told me her first boyfriend from middle school just so happens to live in her apartment building, which is just crazy. We started reminiscing about our first boyfriends. Hers sounded like a nice, normal guy who turned out well. She must have been born with good taste in men. Not me. I ran into my first boyfriend, Jaime*, two years ago when I was visiting my parents. The staggering thing was that he hasn’t changed at all since we dated in 8th grade. He is doing the exact same thing he was 20 years ago — getting stoned ’round the clock, saying “right on” a lot, and playing guitar in a band that will never go anywhere. These things were all very attractive to me when I was 13. Oh, how I’ve changed. The only thing that has changed about Jamie is the way he looks. He is heavier and his hair is longer. I don’t think he’s cut it since 1991. Good thing the grunge look is making a comeback. To think, I entertained the idea of running away with him and getting married. I must have been rendered temporarily insane by the mix tape he made me. After the jump, I asked some Frisky staffers and friends what has become of their first loves.

The Ghosts (Or At Least Stuff) Of Exes Past

Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively are dating. And — at least according to The National Enquirer — Blake was none too pleased when she was at Leo’s New York apartment recently and discovered a suitcase full of lingerie belonging to his ex, model Bar Refaeli. Allegedly, she flipped out, and Leo—being the gentleman that he is—promptly marched down to the dumpster to destroy the evidence. A nice save, considering his first reaction probably went something like, “Don’t worry, she just hasn’t picked it up yet.” [CelebSlam]

We feel (insecure?) for Blake. We too have had unfortunate experiences with traces of exes past in guys’ homes. After the jump, some stories from Frisky staffers and friends. Cringe for us, please. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “He Called Me His Girlfriend, Then Disappeared”

I went on a first date with this amazing guy the day before Thanksgiving. We made a great connection and hung out all weekend. We both agreed that it felt right and marveled at how easy it was to spend time with each other, and on Sunday he even called me his girlfriend! Normally, I don’t jump into things like that, but we were so into each other that I threw caution to the wind and went with it. A few days later, he called me and said that something happened to his dad (whom he said he has issues with) and that he was hospitalized in a city two hours south of here. He said he needed to focus all his energy on dealing with that and that he couldn’t be my boyfriend right now, explaining that he didn’t want to be with me at all if he couldn’t be with me 100 percent. He said it would be a few weeks before things got back to normal, and then maybe we could start dating again. I’m an eternal optimist and I want to believe that he still wants to be with me eventually, but I can’t ignore my logical side. I think that if he wanted to talk to me, he would have called me by now. Normally, I would shrug it off and move on already, but I’ve never met anyone with whom I’ve had such a strong connection. I want to be with him, and the things he has said lead me to believe that he feels the same way. What should I do? — Rushed Love Lost
