The Strip Club Wasn't What I Expected It To Be

Every time I passed the sleazy strip club with the neon “Girls Girls Girls” sign, I wanted to go in. I don’t really know why. I’m heterosexual (other than my small thing for Megan Fox). And I know it’s not politically correct to go to the strip club (I was raised with that “Free to be You and Me” album just like you were). And yet? Something was compelling me. I guess I just wanted to see me some titties, OK? ...more

Good Behavior for 100 please

There was something that my family, close friends and I observed about my sons' behavior over this recent visit that had us all questioning where it could be coming from. It's an observation I made months ago. However, as a mother I realize I can be a little sensitive and I definitely over analyze sometimes. Regarding my son, I watch him close and sometimes notice things no one else would otherwise notice. I continued to monitor him without raising the issue initially....more

The Day I Discovered That I Just Don't Give A Shirt Anymore

Dear Dr. Romance: He said I was a false friend.

Dear Dr. Romance,I love reading your articles here and on Divine Caroline, and I always look forward to the new ones. I have a long time online friend.

Women Talk About Guys the Way Guys Talk About Cars

This past weekend I sat and listened to 5 guys (one of which was my boyfriend, Mark) discuss cars for two hours straight. I turned to the person next to me and asked, “Do they always talk about cars?” He said, “Well, to be fair. They all love cars and when guys get together they’re going to talk about what they love.”It got me thinking: What do girls talk about when we get together? Oh yeah — we talk about our guys who only talk about cars.One of Mark’s car-loving friends compared a female conversation and a male conversation and concluded that they are exactly the same. Apparently, girls love discussing cars just as much as guys love discussing cars. All you have to do for us is swap out the word “car” for the word ...more
