As any girl in the dating world will tell you, you can tell pretty much all you need to know about a potential boyfriend from the house he keeps. We’re not saying emotional maturity is reflected in one’s furniture … except, yeah, we kinda are.
It’s not about whether or not the guy has… More »
The holidays, and winter in general, are for couples.
I swear, I’m not beating my usual “life is cruel for us singles” drum, because we pretty much own spring and summer. In winter, though, people pair off and disappear like the end of a key party, and we’re just left sitting there on the… More »
I just found out (via some totally sane Internet stalking) that my boyfriend used to have a thing with a guy. We’ve only been dating a few weeks. Should I be concerned? Should he have told me? How do I bring this up? Read more … … More »
I’m in my 20s and I’m seeing someone older. I’m a virgin but I want to have sex with him. We’re taking things slow, but I know that he’s very experienced. Is it possible for two people with really different levels of experience to have good sex? Read more … … More »
Amelia recently probed the very-2010 phenomenon of the Two-Night Stand. You know, when a gentleman caller contacts you for a second hang-out or hook-up and then disappears forever, like the middle daughter on “Family Matters.”
I decided to ask guys why they pulled a Two-Night Stand. The response was overwhelming, and the results were… More »

I had been dating Jared a few weeks when my friends started questioning whether or not I’d made him up.
Jared was the awesome boyfriend they only heard about and never met. He cooked for me, we loved the same TV shows, he looked great in pajamas, we had great chemistry, and we could… More »
“Aaron misses you and can’t live without you,” was Dr. W’s first line at our first session.
I turned to my handsome, curly haired off-and-on beau of six years, sitting beside me on the couch of Dr. W’s office. I’d left Aaron because he couldn’t commit. Yet after three months apart, he coerced me… More »
What’s healthier: Still bringing up your ex five-hundred moons after you broke up with him, or, say, doing a search for his name on Flickr and gaining access to his latest photo uploads in the privacy of your own apartment and/or cube?
Am I less insane for airing the fact that I can’t get… More »
This past Sunday was my 25th birthday. While I don’t think of 25 as old, I definitely think of it as getting older, as I am now closer to 30 than 20.
At this sort of “in-between” moment, I got to thinking about what a difference five years can make.
I’m a completely… More »
I liked jerks. No, I loved them, but now, looking back, I realize it wasn’t just that. For the most part, every man who failed to call me was capable of calling someone else, and at a certain point, I had to face the fact that it wasn’t just them, it was me. I begged… More »
I’ve been with my boyfriend for just about two years now. How do I keep it interesting with him in bed? I feel like it’s getting dull already. Are we doomed? Read more … … More »
I was sickeningly shocked when I heard about Michele Kalina, the Pennsylvania woman who killed four of her newborn babies after getting pregnant as a result of a series of extramarital affairs.

I’m afraid to let a guy to go down on me because I’ve heard men don’t like performing oral sex. Is it true? Read more … … More »
Kelly Valen, author of The Twisted Sisterhood, has a bone to pick with women, particularly with the mob mentality that can evolve when a group of girls gets together.
She, like so many females, had a Bad Sorority Experience back in the day. A really bad one, in fact: After she lost her virginity… More »
If it’s stupid and embarrassing, I’ve done some version of it on a date … and have had to do some pretty impressive damage control to make up for it.
From cartwheeling over a restaurant chair like I was in the “American Gladiators” atlasphere to accidentally saying unflattering things about Hunt’s ketchup (honestly, how… More »
I pulled the curtain back from the living room window in my small adobe home and stared at the dirt road winding down the little hill into Los Molinos. In the three years I’d been married to Verlan, this was the longest he’d ever been away. How many times in the past four months had… More »
Shanae Hall is like that wise friend you have who cuts through all your whining and obsessing to tell you exactly what you’d been avoiding telling yourself.

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… More »
Do you prefer sex in a tent, somewhere on the Serengeti? Or would you rather have the carnal equivalent of Your Couch and must-see TV?
In a new CNN report, noted sexpert Ian Kerner broke sexual compatibility into two simple categories: either you’re a “comfort creature” or you’re a “thrill seeker,” and this holds… More »
