What To Do When You See A Friend Self-Destructing

Here's a listener question I received. Dear Maryanne, One of my best friends has been unhealthily obsessed with the same guy for almost four years (we're now seniors in college). They have hooked up intermittently over this time but have never been on a date or spent any platonic time together. He has never displayed any actual interest in her or her feelings despite it being incredibly obvious that she is very attached. She refuses to show interest in any other person.

Your Ex Wants Sex...Is A Booty Call Ever Ok?

"I am going to be in town for a couple of days and I would love to see you." the familiar voice said hopefully. Instantly I am flooded with emotions both good and bad. We had been broken up for a few months and I had been trying to evict him from my mind ever since. Unbidden, thoughts about him and how hot the sex was, how beautiful I felt when I was with him, how romantic it was to sip wine at sunset, had been running through my mind for weeks. My brief fling with him had been the most fun I'd had in years!

What Men Really Think About You in the Club

Men and women usually go to the club for vastly different reasons. Men go to the club to find women, find women, and to find women. Women go to the club to sometimes find a man, but also to enjoy themselves by dancing and drinking the night away with friends. Men are reactionary creatures. If you want to know what we think about you at the club, all you need to do is evaluate one thing: Your activity at the club. Men read what women give us to read. It’s as simple as that.

3 Ways To Avoid Being A Booty Call

No one wants to be considered as a "sex buddy" or be placed in a friend with benefits category without their permission. Being treated like a "sex buddy" can have a demeaning and emotional effect on someone's image or self worth. You think it is love, but you are still unsure about your partner's position? How can you determine if it is true love or just sex?

Why Booty Calls Keep True Love Away

“He keeps coming back and I let him in every time.” “A part of me cannot let go.  I want it to work out between us even though I know he isn’t the one.” I heard the sound of quiet weeping on the other end of the phone. “Is there anything in you that whispers that he might truly change and that you would feel valued, respected and loved?” I asked gently. “No.” Sighed Sarah. “I'm afraid he is as good as it gets.”

Casual Sex? I'm Worth More Than That

Sunday morning, at 2:30 AM, I was jostled from my deep slumber by the obnoxious trill of my cellphone alerting me to a new text message. I knew it had to be one of two people. Anyone else who would text at such a late hour would be being rude, but a booty call is just playing by the rules.

You Know You Might Be a Booty Call If...

First of all, let me state for the record, I have no issue with the concept of booty call. If both partners are consenting, and know exactly what they’ve signed up for - great. However, it seems as though women can’t see the forest for the trees inside the booty call at times. Meaning, the man involved knows exactly what it is. He defines it by his unwillingness to take the relationship further. Her friends even know what it is. However, she wants to think there is something more serious going on, or at least hopes there might be someday if she hangs out long enough.

Casual Sex Study Finds Booty Calls Have Better Sex

Going through a dry spell? According to a recent sex study, people seeking better sex lives might consider becoming someone's booty call. That's right — science is endorsing casual sex, but moreso if you're a little bored, and if you're enjoying it in a friends-with-benefits arrangement rather than in the context of a one-night stand.

Don't Want To Hook Up? Kelly Clarkson Can Help

Kelly Clarkson is known for a lot of things—winning the first season of American Idol; having multiple number one hits; starring in the dreadful From Justin to Kelly. However, according to her official website and Facebook page, Ms. Clarkson might become known for something else—rejection. Miss Independent recently launched the "I Do Not Hook Up hotline"—an aptly titled phone service that not only promotes the singer's latest single but also gives us all an easy out from any uncomfortable dating situation. The number, 973-409-3267, appears as harmless enough digits and could easily be a number from North Jersey.
