Love & Sex

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… READ 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… READ MORE »

In a group, they all laughed. It didn’t take much to make them laugh, and once they started, it escalated within minutes, growing more out of control, as if they were trying to outdo each other in their maniacal hysterics.

I lay on my right side, staring at the gray wall in front of… READ MORE »

Halfway through my senior year in high school, I was getting ready to have a huge party in my barn after Winter Ball. My friends and I were in the hay loft, decorating and messing around. I was hanging a sheet and not paying attention as I walked backward. I then passed through the hole… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

You know the saying, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

But when does a casual series of drinks and meeting up at parties become a deeper entanglement of feelings, fascinating discussions about the origin of childhood scars and trips to the grocery store for toilet paper and dish detergent? To use the parlance… READ MORE »

There are times it’s obvious when a man is lying. Like when he opens his mouth. Just kidding! We’re not that bitter (typically). But seriously, there are times in some relationships when you wonder if he really was at his buddy Jim’s house playing poker until 3:30 a.m. Or if that woman Mindy with the… READ MORE »

You know that feeling when you first see someone and you’re not only drawn to him, but you’ve just got to have him?

You want all of him — physically, emotionally and intellectually. That’s how he and I were. “He” seemed perfect for me — 10 years older, mature, confident, established (and tall!). We… READ MORE »

Summer’s tough, guys. There are so many weddings and birthday parties and barbecues filled with cake and buffets and beer and chicken wings. We’ve already told you — we’re ladies who eat. Depriving ourselves of our favorites (ice cream and, again, CHICKEN WINGS!) wasn’t going to cut it, so we’re learning to balance our sometimes-not-ideal… READ MORE »

If you’re single and looking to commiserate about your fate, do we have a book for you. Author Kristen McGuiness was on “The Today Show yesterday talking about 51 Dates / 50 Weeks: The Magical Adventures of a Single Life.

Then Chelsea Handler tweeted about how much she loved it, but that’s not what… READ MORE »

I’m 24 and finally had a one-night stand. I didn’t bother leaving my number or any contact information (or even my name) in the morning for fear of coming off as clingy or naïve. But I accidentally left a couple of accessories at his place, and now I have no way to get in touch.READ MORE »

What’s a good “number” for a girl at age 21/25/30/35. What about a guy? What are the averages?

People ask me this kind of question a lot, and I’ll be honest with you: I don’t get it. Read more … … READ MORE »

I’ve learned a lot over the course of writing this column. Readers don’t care for wedding critiques. Also, if you want to generate a ton of comments, write an impassioned polemic against open-toed sandal-boots and vodka tonics. Interweb columns sure are strange!

My editor, when not worshiping Cthulu or excising all of my best… READ MORE »

At one point in her life — when she owned a two-bedroom condo, two cars, and enough wedding china to serve two dozen people gazpacho at the same time — Tammy Strobel, 31, asked herself if all that “stuff” actually made her and her husband, Logan, happy.

Then, she gave it all away. READ MORE »

Most of the wedding’s details are already set — she’s picked out the venue, chosen a DJ, and narrowed her gown possibilities to four lucky finalists. There’s just one thing missing: the husband-to-be.

Lisa, a singer-songwriter, has neither a fiance nor a long-term… READ MORE »

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about whale semen, it’s that if you Tweet about it, you get … crickets.

“HAHA, ASSIGNED TO CONDITION MY HAIR WITH WHALE SEMEN!” I wrote to my unwitting public (of, like, 140 followers).

Nothing. No one wants to hear about that. But they should! Because whale sperm… READ MORE »

Recently there was the dude dressed in a giant broccoli costume who got down on one knee at the minor league baseball game. (Come on, if you’re going to propose on the Jumbotron, at least choose the majors.)

Then there was Mike from Austin, whose proposal fail took place on live TV. Or a… READ MORE »

Have we met?

If you find me charming, funny and confident, then the answer is no. Although, we might have emailed. Why? Because in terms of personality, I’m Don Draper … electronically. In the flesh? Not so much.

Welcome to my personal hell.
