Watching Paint Die And Don Emoticon

by Amy Alkon
Wednesday, Apr. 9 — Q: I’ve been dating a girl I really like for six weeks. She pays her rent with a 9-to-5 job but studied painting at art school and wants to make it her career.

Save The Wails And Snot To Trot

by Amy Alkon
Wednesday, Mar. 12 — Q: Are guys scared of politically active women? My boyfriend of two months just broke up with me over my support for animal rights, and I’ve generally had difficulty keeping boyfriends because of this. This boyfriend was bothered by two incidents.
