Dear Wendy: “Being A Bridesmaid Is Breaking My Budget!”

A friend of mine from high school asked me in December to be one of her bridesmaids in her July wedding. I was surprised she asked me, particularly because while we were close in our teens, she was usually too busy with her now-fiance´ to catch up or respond to me when I was visiting…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Thinks I’m Too Opinionated”

I’ve been seeing my guy, “Joe,” for four months, and it’s been great!

For the past couple of months, I have been flirting with a co-worker who was very shy at first, but took an interest in my hobbies, complimented me every day, gave me pet names, and generally seemed very interested. After a month and a half, he finally asked me for my number and I kind…

By boyfriend and I have been together two years. About six months ago, I finally said "I love you," deciding that if I didn't say it first he never would. I am still waiting for him to say it back and I'm rather conflicted about the whole thing. First, we are very happy despite some…
