Apocalypse meow & homo on the range

by Amy Alkon
Q: For years, a group of us girls has gone camping, to dinner, to concerts, etc. Our husbands do their own thing together while we hang out. When they bring a new guy into their circle, they seem to think we should automatically accept his female partner. We normally do because we're nice like that. The problem is, there's a gal who invites herself to everything she catches wind of from her husband. She consistently creates incredible upheaval, agitation and hurt feelings with her callous remarks and abrasive personality.

Alive & welded and he leicas the last lady

by Amy Alkon
Q: What is an appropriate amount of togetherness time for a couple? My 9-year-old son spends half the week with me, plus every other weekend.

I’m never alone; I have no time to go grocery shopping, etc.; and no one’s happy.

Catfight club and two shrieks to the wind

by Amy Alkon
Q: My boyfriend of two years is best friends with his ex. During their 14-year relationship, he says they had a codependency, becoming each other's social world. They were still roommates when we started dating, and she refused to even let me into their house. He says he'd like us to become casual friends and includes us both in group events like a recent hike. On it, I tried to be friendly, but she pretty much ignored me. Afterward, I told him it was awkward spending the day with someone who has issues with me.

by Amy Alkon

Dew drop your pants & snail male

by Amy Alkon
Q: I broke up with my guy a while ago, which was the right thing to do. But, I’ve found myself hooking up with guys for no reason other than getting caught in a provocative moment. Of course, as you’ve often written, men and women are very different when it comes to casual sex, and what’s casual for men ends up feeling not so casual for a lot of women. Including me. So, I have to wonder, knowing what I know, why I keep going for pleasure and excitement in the moment when I know I will feel empty afterward.
