Girl Talk: How I Stopped Falling For Guys Who Failed To Mention They Had Girlfriends

When I was in my late 20s, I had a crush on a guy I worked with. He was tall and preppy, and looked like he’d stepped out of a J. Crew catalog. Every Monday morning I’d skip down the aisle, lean on the wall of his cubicle, and ask him how his weekend was,…

Social Style: Do You And Your Friends Dress Alike?

Over the weekend I met up with my friend Katelyn for a karaoke date. I’d come straight from work and was therefore wearing a super boring black pencil skirt and dark gray button-up shirt: not exactly the fun, sassy outfit necessary for belting out my signature Depeche Mode jams in front of a crowd. “Just…

What Girlfriends Does Every Girl Need?

My mom always said that there are three kinds of friends in this world: friends for a reason, friends for a season or friends for life. (My mom loves rhyming advice.)

Lately, in the age of 500-plus Facebook friends, it’s a question everyone seems to be asking: Is real friendship dying? Which relationships really…

Making Friends Is Like Dating

Of the 11 guests who recently got wasted at my apartment, I’d guess that approximately zero could tell you my sister’s name.

I doubt any would know if my parents are still together or who the latest guy I dated was. Maybe half would know I grew up in Texas. A casual observer might…

All Those Girls In Love With Drama

As a teenager, I lived in breathless anticipation or sickening dread of the inevitable drama with a capital D that Monday mornings brought with them. Who had hooked up with whom that weekend (and where and when)? So-and-so called someone a nasty name. Did you hear Sally broke up with her boyfriend … or did… / March 7, 2010

4 Friends Every Woman Should Have

One of the most important parts of life are the friendships you have. Close friends are like a chosen family: they are the people you choose to have in your life on a long-term basis and you love them as if they were your sisters or brothers.

Friends are one of the biggest enhancement… / January 10, 2010

Trial And Error In Making New Friends

I learned the hard way making friends isn’t as simple as asking, “Hey, wanna be my friend?” Apparently, that’s just downright awkward and makes you sound like a creep. So when I moved to a foreign city and it came time for me to search for new pals, I realized that forming bonds wasn’t a…

Maybe We Could Be Soul Mates?

When I told a friend that I was in break-up recovery, she didn’t hand me the name of her therapist, she lent me her “Sex and the City” Collector’s Gift Set. I had caught reruns of the show on the few nights I watched television outside of “60 Minutes” and “Frontline,” and while I loved… / February 11, 2009

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, Even With Girlfriends

Girlfriend break-ups can be just as traumatizing as regular old break-ups with boys. The process is even similar: the anger, sadness, mourning, and finally, acceptance. While you may not have left precious clothes, expensive facial lotion, or significant jewelry at her house, you do feel like a real part of your soul missing as there&#8217… / December 2, 2008

I Make An Awesome Girlfriend Because…

We recently made a wish list of traits you’re hoping your next boyfriend will posses. Looking at all the characteristics that were stipulated, we started to think about ourselves and what we would bring to a relationship with a man who has all the qualities we desire. There’s a reason we’re so picky about who…

Quote Of The Day: John Mayer On Cheating

I’ve never cheated on anybody, so you won’t have anybody coming out the woodwork saying that I have. Instead of worrying about career damage, I’ve dated women. All I’ve ever done was decided that I fancied somebody, and said, “Would you like to go out and get a meal somewhere?” And done so in a…
