Two Legendary Cosmo Editors In Exclusive Q&A
Legendary Cosmo editors Bonnie Fuller and Helen Gurley Brown with advice on sex, love and career.

ANSWER: Try to get a tolerable job at something you're good at—get in there and get paid to do it. You may not find the perfect job right now. But keep whatever job you have for as long as you can, for income and experience, while you look for something else.

14) QUESTION: Can you fall in love more than once? - anonymous

ANSWER: You should have several relationships before you settle down. I started dating in junior high school. I personally believe that being in love with someone is so wonderful, you should do it more than once. You can fall out of love with people, too—you might as well have different experiences as you go along. I can tell you that I was in love when I was 16, and I'm in love now!

15) QUESTION: Why won't my wife tell me her fantasies? I have great sex fantasies and I'd like to be able to share them with her and have her tell me hers. But she says she doesn't have any. - AlaricRoman

ANSWER: You should keep encouraging her to be open with you. Tell her one or two of yours, and then maybe you can talk her into sharing one or two of hers. If she still refuses, you may need to encourage her to get professional help—I've found that has worked well.
