Dear Wendy: “I’m Stressed About New Year’s Eve”

I’m in school in the UK and my wonderful boyfriend is in school in Michigan. I’m coming to stay with him for a couple weeks over New Year’s (one week in the middle, when he’s in classes, I’ll go to see my parents in NC), but there’s a problem: he wants to go to NYC… More »


Dear Wendy: “Should I MOA?”

I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, the last three months of which have been long distance as I had to move for grad school. We only live three hours apart, so we still get to see each other a couple times a month. For most of the last three… More »

This is our first Christmas as a couple and the first serious boyfriend I had around the holidays. He has already met my parents and sister and they all like each other. Should he get them… More »


Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s A Bore”

About six months ago, I met this guy, Alex, who I thought was perfect. He is about to graduate law school, he is unbelievably kind, respectful and empathetic, and also the sex is great. But I have slowly begun to realize that Alex is very safe — meaning he’s not spontaneous and not very funny… More »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Repulses Me”

When I asked my current boyfriend out, I was very clear to explain that I wanted something casual and certainly not monogamous. But somehow, he now thinks that we are a monogamous couple and is planning our future together. He keeps planning for events I don’t want to attend and talking as if we will… More »


Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend And I Don’t Have Anything In Common”

My boyfriend and I have had what I would describe as a happy relationship for two years now. Problem is, even though we have FABULOUS chemistry and get along great, we have nothing in common. I’m a vegan hippie-type and he’s a carnivorous couch-potato. We’re both starting to feel burnt out and frustrated at not… More »

Dear Wendy: “Should I Pursue A Long-Distance Relationship Or Move On Already?”

I have been talking to this guy for a few months now. We were good friends in college and reconnected via Facebook and upgraded our flirtatious banter to texting and phone calls. He lives about four hours away from me (I realize this is not really that long distance considering you moved across the country… More »


Dear Wendy: “I’m Afraid To Tell My New Boyfriend I Practice Abstinence”

I’ve been seeing this guy for a bit now. The only thing we’ve done is kissing (no touching) and I’ve never invited him over to my apartment (for fear of him initiating sexual activities). I like him a lot and I see a potential relationship with him. However, I made a decision to abstain from… More »


Dear Wendy: “I Don’t Want To End Up Alone”

I’m a 21-year-old girl who can’t seem to find happiness. Don’t get me wrong; I love hanging out with my friends and having an active social life, but I just can’t seem to find someone who wants to be with me. I feel as if I’m worthless because any guy I’m remotely interested in would… More »


Dear Wendy: “Skype Sex With My Long-Distance Boyfriend Is Awkward”

When I moved out of the country four months ago to take a pretty sweet job abroad, my boyfriend and I decided to do the long-distance thing, and so far everything is great. We haven’t really had any issues other than lack of sleep due to staying up all night on Skype because of the… More »


Dear Wendy: Introducing MOA!

Every week, about 20 percent of the letters I receive fall into a category Dan Savage would call “DTMFA.” As you might imagine, it gets a little tiresome to try to answer each of these letters, but I can’t help feel a little guilty when I simply ignore them. After all, these are people who… More »
