Dear Wendy: “I’m Engaged But Fantasizing About A Colleague”

I am happily engaged to a wonderful man, and we are planning an amazing life together in the years to come. I couldn’t be more excited about how my life has turned out thus far. But over the past year, I have developed an excellent working relationship with someone I have a lot in common with. My company is actually his client, and I am his main contact. Until recently, our interaction had been only through email or over the phone. But at an industry event several weeks ago, we finally had a chance to connect in person, and it turns out that he is QUITE the looker. A few drinks were had at an after party, and he admitted that he had feelings for me and tried to kiss me. I was taken off guard and sincerely flattered, and though I did not kiss him or become physically involved, I didn’t remove myself from the situation immediately. Since then, I have found my thoughts drifting to him, and to what would have happened if I had let myself slip up. My rational self wants nothing to do with slipping up! I am already resolved to drink less and leave earlier at the next industry event. But I am having trouble managing my daydreams, and my ego it seems. How do I kill this fantasy so I can get back to my real life and love? — Afraid of Slipping Up

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Keeps Another Woman’s Underwear In His Dresser”

I’m in a long-distance relationship going on two years. We both work for an airline so we can fly back and forth a lot and we do. Every time he goes back home his attitude changes. It’s almost like it doesn’t bother him that he has to leave. And he just changes into somebody I don’t know. Each time I thought we had a good time; we always get along well. Great! Also, when I want to discuss my feelings about this, he says I just make stuff up that isn’t there. Also, he’s keeping his ex-girlfriend’s panties and bras. In his drawer. She passed away four years ago now. Is that normal? — Flight Risk

Dear Wendy: “Rumor Has It My New Guy’s A Notorious Cheater”

I’ve recently moved to a new town to start graduate school and met a cool guy in my major who I’ve been seeing for a few weeks now. He’s very sweet and there is a strong desire there to keep things moving. However, when talking to another friend, she told me that my guy is known as a serial cheater. I vowed to her that I wouldn’t get too serious about him. I’ve been cheated on once in the past and it ruined me for quite a while. I really don’t know what to do in this situation. If I could keep myself from getting attached to him, I would, but things seem to be going really well between us. So when the time comes when we do get more serious, do I bring up what I know about his past? Do I listen to my friend and not keep him as a serious boyfriend? Or should I run for the hills right now before I get too close to him? I know that I might be jumping the gun with this question since we haven’t been seeing each other for very long, but I’d rather have a plan of action now so I can keep my heart safe later. — CheatSkate

Mind Of Man: What Men Now Know About Women

Gillian Telling, author of the book Dirty Girls: The Naked Truth About Our Guilty Secrets (Unpretty, Unclean, and Utterly Horrifying), recently wrote that women “don’t consider drunk kissing cheating, as long as we’re the ones doing the drunk kissing. We consider sex with another man cheating.” This was number 19 on her list of “20 Things Men Don’t Know About Women,” which she wrote for this fine internet publication. As you can imagine, there was a strong reaction in the comments section to Gillian’s claim that women don’t count drunken make-outs as cheating. It was truly magical. There’s a scene in the beginning of the movie “Gladiator,” when Russell Crowe’s character Maximus is leading his Roman army in a battle against German barbarians. He turns to one of his lieutenants and growls, “On my mark, unleash hell.” It was like THAT in the comments. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Craigslist Caution” Responds

Hey, are you someone I’ve given advice to in the past? Do you have an update on your situation you’re willing to share? Email me at {encode=”dearwendy@thefrisky.com” title=”dearwendy@thefrisky.com”} with a link to the original post, and let me know whether you followed the advice and how you’re doing now. Sometimes people write to me with an idea of what they want to hear and when they don’t hear just that, well, they aren’t very happy … and sometimes they let me know it. Today we hear from Craigslist Caution, the woman who occasionally catches her husband perusing the Casual Encounters section of Craigslist when he’s feeling sexually rejected and is looking for new friends. Despite even catching him emailing someone from the site, she still wasn’t sure whether she should be worried or just chalk this up to “curiosity.” I told her there was definitely something to be worried about, but that was not the answer she wanted to hear and she had some choice words for me. Read ‘em and weep, after the jump. Keep reading »
