Nesting: Bed Shopping Makes Me Want To Cry

Truth: I love me some shopping. But I'm the kinda girl who has always been on a Forever 21 budget. Thirty to fifty bucks here or there is typical; a few years ago I bought a $250 pair of high heels from J.Crew and I still feel guilty about it. When you decorate a new…

He Said/She Said: When She Moves In With Him

I had just started calling J. my boyfriend when he asked me to move in – rather, told me I was moving in. He had posted my apartment on Craig’s List “just to gauge the response” and within an hour received six. At work when he delivered the news, I kind of freaked. I like…

Girl Talk: Did I Fail To Keep The Romance Alive?

Yesterday I was idly reading the comments on one of my posts on The Frisky when a partner link caught my eye: "7 Things You Shouldn't Tell Your Boyfriend." Shouldn't tell your boyfriend? I thought.

Girl Talk: I’ve Moved Out Of Our Apartment

Of all the aspects that were difficult about my recent breakup from my boyfriend of two years, the hardest was moving out of the apartment that we shared together.

How To Move In Together — And Deal With His Stuff

I should have been satisfied when my boyfriend agreed to get rid of his forest-green pleather couch -- with matching love seat! -- before we started living together. But I wasn't.

Girl Talk: Getting A Dog Changed Our Relationship More Than Moving In Together

A year into our relationship, I knew Michael was about to pop the question. After all, we were crazy about each other, lived together, and made a great team despite our many differences. Now it was just time to make our union official. “Babe,” he finally said one day. “Are you ready to get a…

Girl Talk: (Not So) Independent Woman (Anymore)

Just a few years ago, I had a huge pair of balls. Big, old honkin' balls. And then I moved in with my boyfriend. He's not a particularly "Grr! I'm a man! I'm going to take care of you!" kind of guy. But he does like taking care of me, so I try to let…

Gollum slithered around the picnic tables in a bald wig and a loincloth. Bilbo Baggins manned the barbecue. An elf with pointy ears asked if we had any veggie burgers.
