Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Hangs Out With ‘Mean Girls'”

A couple months ago I entered into a relationship with an awesome guy whom I work with (not necessarily the best call, but what can you do!). So far, things have been pretty good. We have the ability to keep it professional at work and we share the same sense of humor, etc.. The problem…

Dear Wendy: “When’s The Best Time To Discuss STDs?”

After getting dumped by my boyfriend of five years (and some time to get over that), I’ve recently re-entered the dating world. So far it’s a lot like I remember it to be; however, the only difference is that this time I’m not a virgin, and neither are most of the people I’ve been out…

Dear Wendy: “My Girlfriend Lets Her Friends Take Advantage Of Her”

I’ve been with my girlfriend for about two and a half years. The one problem I have is with my girlfriend’s friends and how they handle money. From everything I know, everyone is on pretty similar pay levels, but her friends always seem to be short on cash when they do stuff together. My girlfriend…

Dear Wendy: “I’m A Selfish Girlfriend”

My boyfriend and I have been dating for nine months, and for this whole period, his mother, who lives several states away, has been very sick with cancer. Because this is such a difficult situation for him, I have tried to be understanding when things do not go my way. (I was not always selfle…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Is Insistent That I Take His Name If We Marry”

I have been dating a wonderful man for two years and we have been talking about getting married. The only problem is that it’s very important to him that I take his last name. He thinks it would make us feel more like a family and serve as a sign of my devotion to him.

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Rejects My Gifts”

I am in a fairly new but happy relationship with a sweet, doting guy. I take issue, however, with his constant preoccupation with money. He doesn’t make much, but we’re both young and he has a better job than most people our age. His parents, who both struggle financially, seem to talk about money all…

Dear Wendy: “My Friend Set Me Up With A Sizeist Jerk”

Through a friend, I got the email and phone number of a guy who does home repairs. My cousin needed work done on her house, but never had much time to make arrangements, so I made the appointments for her. The work was done wonderfully and at a great price, so I sent an email…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Doesn’t Love Me”

I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year and a few months. We moved in with other a year ago. It’s pretty serious, and we plan to travel together this fall and move to a new country together. I would say it’s a very happy and healthy relationship. The problem is I’ve repeatedly told him…

Dear Wendy: “I’m Ashamed Of My Stripper Past”

When I was a freshman in college, I made a really bad decision that has been on my conscience ever since. I was attending an expensive private school and I didn’t make enough at my part-time job to support the kind of lifestyle I wanted and that most of my wealthy peers lived. So for…
