Girl Talk: How Much Space Is Too Much In A Relationship?

We've all dated a jerk at some point in our lives, and if you haven't yet, you will. Like they say, you have to kiss a bunch of frogs to find your prince, right? Well, needless to say I've kissed my fair share of frogs and still no prince. But each frog I've dated ha…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Says He’s Not In Love”

It’s time again for “Shortcuts,” wherein I answer readers’ letters in two sentences or less. Sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss loser boyfriends, lying about one'…

Girl Talk: Honesty — Did I Do It Wrong?

I consider myself to be a pretty honest person, save the occasional white lie -- "Oh yeah, I've read War & Peace. Thought-provoking!" However, I think telling the truth is not always easy and it doesn't necessarily work out how you'd like it to. The goal of telling the truth shouldn't be about relieving a…

Universal Lies Women Tell

By "universal lies," I think what is written on this man's T-shirt is supposed to be a list of lies that we all tell. But it's not really gender-neutral, because one of the lies has a pronoun in it. "She's just a friend." Clearly, these are the lies guys are more prone to telling.

Girl Talk: I Loved — And Stuck By — A Man Who Cheated With Me

I once loved a man who lied. He lied constantly and ardently -- professionally, even. His lies eased his access to third-world sweatshops where he'd document working conditions and then use this evidence to help human right organizations fight to improve the laborers' cause. His lies made life unquestionably better for untold thousands of people…

Two Very, Very Uncool Lies

Lying is bad enough in the first place. But if there are two things a person should never, ever lie about, they are AIDS and rape. So we are pretty horrified by these stories that came out today. First, porn star Jackie Braxton (aka “Fame”) is probably in hiding right now after she told a…

New Studies Call Women Cheating Liars

Some new studies suggest men cheat up to five percent more than women, but apparently ladies are "bigger liars" about it. Hmm ... bigger liars or just better at not getting caught?

Cheating: Is The Cover Up Worse Than The Crime?

Along with the rest of America, I'm rubbernecking at South Carolinian Gov. Mark Sanford's affair with an Argentinian lass, Maria Belen Chapur (and I'm quietly cheering for Sanford's wife, Jenny, for leaving him). Cheating doesn't speak well for a conservative Republican politician who preached "family values." Sanford's hypocrisy alone is gross. But married…

The Matrimommy: Sometimes A Little Lie Doesn’t Hurt…

When you’re single, there’s not much need for secrets. You live on your own, pay your own bills and make your own decisions because you don’t have to answer to anyone but yourself. If you want that pair of $250 jeans but have no money, who says you can’t charge them? It’s you and only…

Lying About Plastic Surgery Is Bad

A 38-year-old woman had an expensive laser procedure done to her face, but beforehand, she told her husband she was merely getting a facial.
