Be The Boyfriend You Wish You Had

Yes, you read the title correctly. It was a toss up between the one I chose and “Treat Yourself The Way You Wanted To Be Treated.” I don’t know how guys are, but when girls get together, all we do is bitch about our boyfriends. What they do wrong, why they can’t do anything right, what stupid ass thing they said, what stupid ass thing they did, etc, etc.We could literally go on all day long. The ranting and raving usually ends with an end-of-the-night “I don’t want you to get the wrong idea because he really is a great guy” or “But I really do love him” — to which we always reply, “You don’t have to say that. I know he’s a good guy and, if you didn’t love him, you wouldn’t be with him.” Sometimes I like to throw in “because he’s such a dumbass that why would you be with him if you didn’t love the idiot?”.Anyway, after years upon years of complaining about our boyfriends’ juvenile stupidity, my friends and I have decided to be the boyfriend that we wish we had. It’s pretty much the same concept as the Destiny’s Child’s Independent Women song. You can love him as much as you want, but don’t let his actions make you feel bad anymore....more

Minding my own business, when suddenly -- what the HELL just HIT me?

Darcy Perdu of www.sothenstories.comSo then…the music soars to a crescendo as the actors scurry about the Broadway stage -- which my boyfriend and I can see perfectly from our fantastic theatre seats. Just as we’re experiencing the spectacular re-enactment of the Fall of Saigon, something comes hurtling off the stage and hits me square in the chest. I am stunned. ...more

Why Doesn't My Boyfriend Want To Be With Me 24/7!?!

Dear Mouthy Housewives, I’m in a bit of a pickle. I have been dating a divorced man for over a year and a half now and I love him dearly. But (there’s always a but, right?), he is still living his life like he did with his ex-wife where they were basically roommates and lived separate lives. He is constantly scheduling things with other people even though I have told him that I would like to spend more time with him....more

Work Life Meets Love Life, Sort Of

Yesterday I finally started feeling a bit more on top of my game, so I went out with Fernando to the mall. It was excellent. He wanted to give me a day out because he hadn't had the chance to see me all week while I was sick and he was working, and he felt badly that he wasn't able to take care of me. So we strolled into the mall. Thus far, I've managed to keep Fernando just a name and a picture to my coworkers for the most part. He's talked to a couple of them, but only on the very rare times they caught us when we actually got to grab lunch together during the week. ...more

The Perks of Being Sick

An upper respiratory infection and an ear infection have kept me home from work every day this week. It's been, quite frankly, miserable. When my ears weren't hurting, they were plugged up. When I wasn't coughing, my throat was hurting. And the congestion in my head and nose has remained a fair constant.I'm gearing up for NaBloPoMo on my own blog, and in the spirit of that, I'm thinking on the theme of love and sex for February....more

He Made the First Confession - I Accepted. The Right Decision Under Weird Circumstances?

In total, I've only been in four relationships in total - one in my senior year of high schoo, and three in college. My first three didn't last any more than five months, one of the three having lasted not more than three weeks. Now, I won't be ashamed to say that for the first relationship, I was the dumper. For the second, I became the dumpee, which then my ex had begged me and still continues to beg for me to take him back, saying that he's made the biggest mistake so far of his life....more

You Look Like Effing Madonna!!

Can I just talk about bracelets for a minute? Because I am having THE BEST DAY and it's completely bracelet related. I LOVE bracelets. I really do. On any given day I stack probably between 20-30 bracelets on my wrists. I feel like they really 'make' an outfit, and I'm completely obsessed with making them. I actually counted last week, and in the last 2 or so months I've made around 85 or so. I really am obsessed....more
