Dating and Friends

I’m going to put this right out there: Some people suck at having friends and dating at the same time. Have you ever had a friend who just completely disappeared after meeting Mr./Ms. Right(Now)?  Maybe you’ve been that friend.  Maybe you currently are that friend.  Stop that asshattery right this instant. I get it, and I’m happy for you.  You’ve met someone that you just can’t stand to be without.  Hell, I have someone in my life that I can’t imagine being apart from.  It’s intoxicating.  New love is amazing, and you want to just cocoon with your lovenugget until you’re both old, ...

“I just can’t figure out how he feels about me!”

A few days ago, I overheard one girl on my college campus talking to another. “I just can’t figure out how he feels about me.  When we’re together, it’s great, but then he doesn’t text back and he doesn’t make plans.  But I like him so much!” It was really difficult for me not to go over and tell her what I’m about to tell you: It doesn’t fucking matter. Think about it this way.  When you make a new friend, you hit it off immediately.  Often, you exchange numbers, and you might go through an awkward phase where you’re not sure how ...

Living and Loving Arrangements

Darlings, the last week has been absolutely 100% different from what I anticipated. Until last Thursday, I was planning to move into my apartment in one of the nice, safe, but boring neighborhoods of Pittsburgh.  I would be moving at the end of the month, living with two guys I didn't know (but who seemed very sweet from our brief meeting!) and I would hope to save enough money that in case something happened after I graduated and I lost my job at Adam & Eve, I could still pay my bills.  And honestly, it was giving me a stomach ulcer. Obviously, ...

I Dunno, Cupid…

Hi pretties! It's been a very long time since I posted about this, but it's exciting so I feel like broaching it again: online dating.  I don't think I've ever addressed here, properly, why I like it and why I don't think it's just for crazy cat ladies. I've actually met some nice, normal guys online.  Specifically, on OKCupid.  It's free, and there are a lot of students - both undergrad and graduate - in my area.  Perfect, really, for casually dating or looking for something more serious.  I swear!  It's true!  Guys who have respected me, had life goals, and carried on ...

Manday: Take Two

By 0 , , , , Permalink 0

So I have a lovely reader/friend/Swede who reminded me that today is, in fact, MANDAY.  ...Basically, what I'm getting at is that I didn't really have a plan for this Manday so I'm kind of flopping around wildly asking the men I know, "What should women know about men?" And getting answers like, "I don't know anything about men."  (This is what I have to work with, people.) Then I asked one of the guys I had a thing with over the summer, with whom I'm on good terms, and he said that guys don't care about your whiney needs.  I'm pretty ...
