The woman who mistook her sinkhole for a boyfriend & Single trite female

by Amy Alkon
of his clinginess until we moved in together. If I want some “me time,” he gets offended. If I don’t stand or sit next to him or cuddle with him, he claims I don’t like him. If I eat lunch with a friend instead of him (as I do daily), he’s upset. Even when we spend time with my family, there are repercussions (moping and drama when we get home).

Mystery meet, thumber romance & every clod has a silver lining

by Amy Alkon
Many people think the fact that their pants are vibrating gives them a pass to put the person they’re with on face-to-face “ignore.” People with manners consider how their companion might feel sitting before a full restaurant audience pretending to examine a napkin for hidden messages.

Serial monotony & Searching for that special yum one

by Amy Alkon
Marriage used to play out on the Wal-Mart model: the idea that one person would meet your every need from altar to gravestone. Couples these days seem to understand that this is ridiculous, and have friendships outside the relationship.

Gilbert Grope & Rogained another fan!

by Amy Alkon
had drinks in my neighborhood. He drank too much, and asked to hang at my house so he wouldn’t drive under the influence. I didn’t like this because I’m used to guys using this ploy for sex, but he said if I didn’t let him in, I was making him drive drunk.

Sperm Wail

by Amy Alkon
found “the one.” She’s gone from being ultrapicky to swearing she’ll just marry the next guy who doesn’t pick his nose at the dinner table. Wow. Is that what it comes down to for women ' eventually having to give up and settle for a guy you’re less than on fire for? It horrifies me to think of being her at some point.

Bust actress, a whole new bald game & flee collar

by Amy Alkon
Of course, it’s always been out for some (picture Meryl Streep and Judi Dench sitting around pondering, “To DDD or not to DDD'”) While this reported trend in looking natural seems part of the trend toward grass-fed beef, hemp lingerie, and “Hey, you...

by Amy Alkon
It’s terrible, what happened to his roommate, but moving into somebody’s place and then announcing, “Oh, by the way, I’m traumatized by people having sex'” is like saying, “Did I mention that I’m deathly allergic to cats? Not to worry, I hear they don’t feel a thing when they get put down.

Wussy galore & Let’s meek love!

by Amy Alkon
You might be as “liberated” as all get out, but your genes are ready to party like it’s 1.8 million years ago, when women evolved to be the harder-to-get sex and men co-evolved to expect to smooth-talk a woman into the bushes.

Needy Gonzales Truth Theorem

by Amy Alkon
This guy takes the “Dear Occupant” approach to love: Instead of “It had to be you,” it had to be somebody, and you’re standing right there and have yet to call the cops on him. He claims to love you, but you really have to know somebody to love them.

Bodhi call & Flat attire

by Amy Alkon
Forget the old “anything worth having is worth waiting for.” You’re a woman in a hurry. Anything worth having is worth cornering like a trapped animal. Unfortunately, guythink doesn’t work on that timetable. Yeah, he might be sensitive, spiritual, and chatty with trees, but he’s still a guy.
