Dear Jamie: So I have this friend. I love this friend a lot, but maybe he (let’s call him a he) is a little immature where relationships are concerned. He’s still “figuring things out,” as they say. This friend has been cheating on his girlfriend with other women; it’s happened a few times now. And no, they’re not in an open relationship. What, if anything, should I do? More
If you have a friend whom you believe to be a danger to him or herself, or others, then yes — I understand reporting that to the police. But talking to a radio station about your “worries”? No. No, no, no. More
“Do I tell him that he was raped or do I let him continue thinking it was just an unfortunate incident? Am I victimizing him or is society?” More
Remember, kids: it is significantly more important to perceive superiority over everyone else than to be pleased with one’s own life. More
Some revelations defy introduction or context:
In a bizarre interview with ABC News, the one American who has spent significant time with North Koran leader Kim Jong Eun — former NBA star Dennis Rodman — said Sunday that he considers the human rights violator his “friend.”
“He’s a good guy to me. He’s my friend,” Rodman said. “I don’t condone what he does, but as a person to person, he’s my friend.”
Congratulations. You are a true Woman of Merit and Courage. You have passed through the Fires of Understanding; you have hewn your way through the Elaborate Hedge Maze of Adversity. You have truly proven yourself to be an Exemplary Member of your sex. We commend you for your bravery, your fortitude, and your ability to just be chill and not make a big deal out of things, you know? You’re just laid back. Which we on the Gender Committee really appreciate.
You have undergone many trials in the last year, and lost many friends. They were lesser beings. They perished, and rightly so, as they could not hang with us. You, however – you are capable of hanging, and as a reward for your efforts you shall be granted the highest prize available to a woman of your caliber.
Your prize is Hanging Out With Dudes. More
This makes me really, really sad. More
Trying to sleep while you are awake and want to speak or move about in common areas.
Beginning a sentence with “You know what we should start doing…” while you are within earshot but not in the same room.
Parking where you wanted to park.
Not being home when you really need to talk to someone about something important you’re dealing with. More
And by “you,” I mean “me.” More
Someone recently asked me what, if anything, he could do to alert his friend to the fact that his girlfriend was, as they say, “ruining his life.” I think this is a valid topic of conversation, so I’m going to try to answer it in a more general way, as I think many people have been in this situation before.

I once had a roommate who appeared to be drinking an entire case (24 cans) of Miller Lite every single night. One night, she threatened someone with a small knife. The next day, I asked her to leave. More
“Anyhow, Denise and I swore we’d never go back, and we really haven’t,” Trisha said. “You really should have been there, it was so funny – Danny? Dan?” Trisha looked over to where not one minute before her best friend … More
The two of us met around 6.5 years ago a few weeks after graduating from college. We worked side-by-side at our first job. We became friends and work buddies, venting about our jobs, applauding each other in our individual successes, gossiping about the guys we were dating, supporting each other during heartbreak and personal challenges and brainstorming really awesome ideas that would allow us to work for ourselves in the future.
