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…

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…

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…

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…

Dear Wendy: “My Ex Hit Me And Now He Wants Me Back”

I started a long-distance (1,500 miles apart) relationship with a wonderful man in August of last year. Things were going great, but suddenly took a turn for the worse in January when he was diagnosed with cancer. I was able to take two semesters off from school to go be his caregiver.

Dear Wendy: “Should I Marry For Health Insurance?”

I was laid off about a year and a half ago and have been without health care since that time. For the most part, that's OK because I am not sick often. I do, however, have adult ADHD and it is incredibly difficult to function or keep myself organized without my medication. I also have…

Dear Wendy: “Can Ex-Lovers Be Roomies?”

I am currently sharing my apartment with my ex-boyfriend. Initially, this wasn't the plan, but he gave a good argument about why it would be beneficial to the both of us — namely financially. I told him we could try it out and see. Well, it's been a month and something has come to my…

Dear Wendy: “Am I Wrong For Hooking Up With My Friend’s Ex?”

I've recently developed feelings for one of my friend's ex-boyfriends. Throughout their whole relationship she lied to him and cheated multiple times. I saw him at his most vulnerable and he would confide in me when things with them were rough. He and I became really good friends throughout the whole thing and everyone expected…
