I Was In The Psych Ward

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 me…

I Recovered From Brain Damage

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…

Is My Relationship Exclusive?

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 of…

How To Tell If He’s Lying Or Not

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…

He Was Cheating. She Called The Other Woman

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 were…

How To Get Back On The Diet Track

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…

She Went On 51 Dates In 50 Weeks — What Happened?

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.

I Left My Stuff At His Place After A One-Night Stand

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.

What’s Your Number?

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 ...

I’m In Love With Being Alone

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 jokes,…

Would You Give Away All Your Stuff?

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.

She’s Got The Gown, Now She Needs The Groom

Lisa Linehan, 35, is getting married on February 15, 2011. 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 boyfriend. She…

I Tried Whale Semen Hair Conditioner And It Worked

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 is actually…

Over-The-Top Marriage Proposals Are Stupid. Here’s Why …

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 guy…

When He’s Better On Paper Than In Person

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. Here's the deal: When I email a gal, I'm imbued with all…

I Criticized My Mother-in-Law Online — And Then She Found Out

I called it "Got MIL?" and in hindsight, posting it was not my most prudent move. It was an essay that discussed, at some discomfiting length, my relationship with my mother-in-law. It was not an essay that was particularly flattering to my mother-in-law, because she was -- is -- not a particularly easy mother-in-law. But…

This Blogger Is Going On 30 Dates In 30 Days, But Will She Find Love?

The two most common questions I hear as a single girl are as follows: 1) "Are you dating anyone?" and 2) (After I answer "no") "WHY not?" I'll admit, the question normally comes from family members, but I get asked from more non-blood relations than I care to admit. Read more ...

Feng Shui Your Way To Better Sex

We all know that the vibe of a restaurant can tip the scales between a breathtakingly romantic evening and an embarrassingly awkward first date. Similarly, and even more importantly, the atmosphere of your bedroom can make all the difference when it comes to your love life. Once you become aware of this, a lot of…

I Married The Last Real Man

I'm one of the lucky ones. I'm happily married to a man's man, a gentleman, a scholar, a romantic. He can cook if he's going to starve, manages the finances and the house, is the primary breadwinner, looks good in a pair of jeans, likes sports and beer, and takes good care of me. He'…
