Why Women Love Twilight


"Twilight" has taken the world by storm. Since the release of the first movie, "Twilight", in November 2008, the legions of fans lining up to see the release of each new and upcoming movie continues to grow, and stories of fan obsession and ardor over the movies' stars - most notably Robert Pattinson or "Edward" and Kristen Stewart or "Bella" - and fervent fascination with their love lives have reached fever pitch. For a movie based on a teen book series about vampire love, the series now has a fanbase that claims not only teens, but also women in their 30's, 40's, and 50's (and beyond!). Not since the union of Brad and Angelina has the world seen such rabid fan devotion as has been seen with the "Twilight" series! (With fans being known both affectionately and not-so-affectionately as "Twihards".)

Q & A - To Stay or Not to Stay?

Q. Dear Alannah,

So, I've been dating my boyfriend for about two and a half years, and I must say he's been the most generous and caring guy I have ever met.  When he and I first got together, I remember always thinking about how lucky I am to be with a person who is so strikingly different from other guys.  We rarely fought, and when we did, it was usually about small annoyances we had with each other and the fight would quickly dissolve.  He also pays the majority of our expenses; when we go out to eat, he is usually the one that pays for both of our meals while I pay for the tip.  He even pays for my movie ticket, entry to special events, stuff like that.  When I ask him if he's okay with that, he just smiles and says that he's fine with paying for us because he understands that I don't have a job (though I've been scouring all over the place for one with no luck).

Lately, though, things have changed.  He's not as... nice anymore, for lack of a better word.  I've thought about it and my reason for him having changed is that it's been over two and a half years, he's probably getting fed up with always having to "care" for me and "feed" me.  When I think of it that way, I totally understand.  If I were in his situation, I would be irritated, too.

But it's not just him that's changed.  I admit that I've changed as well.  For the past few months, I've been asking myself if I see myself marrying my boyfriend and spending the rest of my life with him.  And when I look at my boyfriend, I sometimes think to myself that although he's one of the nicest and most generous guys I know, he's probably not the best for me.  Quite simply, I often feel like he's just not my type.

Fact or Fiction: Do Men Really Think About Sex Every 7 Seconds?


Answer: Fiction.

Although many men do have high sex drives, the majority are not so driven by their libidos that they can't focus on a single task without sexual thoughts or fantasies entering their minds.  Studies show that about 54 percent of men think about sex every day or several times a day, 43 percent a few times a week or a few times a month, and about 4 percent less than once a month.

Embarrassing First Date Scenarios to Avoid

Many people have first date horror stories that could fill the pages of a book...from blind dates gone wrong to strange types who could have just stepped out of a VH1 reality show, there are some first date stories you'd rather just forget.  Of course, bad date scenarios can go both ways, and no one wants to be on the other end of someone else's bad date story! 

Below, some embarrassing first date scenarios that could happen to anyone, and why you should avoid them!

1) Getting trashed on a first date. A major no-no!  This gives off several bad impressions, the first one being:

a) You can't have fun unless you're throwed.  What this also tells the other person is that you must be boring when you are sober, and need alcohol to become a more "fun" person (think "Fun Bobby" from Friends!).  Even if you're drinking in order to loosen up the first date jitters, getting drunk on a first date can only lead to disaster. 

b) "I can only tolerate you because I'm trashed," or, "You are extremely boring, therefore I must get drunk." Whether or not either of those statements is true, it's only respectful to the other person to stay sober during your date.  No matter how boring your date may be, you should not punish them for it by making them take care of you drunk on your first - and probably only - date together.

Q & A - Should I Wait?

A. Dear Alannah,

About a year ago, I broke things off with my ex-boyfriend, because he was constantly hurting me and I couldn't do it anymore.  I still think about him from time to time, though not as much when I'm dating someone.  Fast forward to today...I've moved to a bigger city and have dated a few guys since I moved.  None of them have really worked out, though, and each time they don't work out, I think about my ex again and get sad.

I recently started seeing this guy.  He was just dumped by his girlfriend (I know, red flag), but he started flirting with me, and we've started hanging out.  I know he's not over his ex yet, and he's even said that he isn't.  I've decided that I like him, though, and think that it's worth pursuing something with him when he's ready.  My question is, what do I do until then?  I know I should keep my options open, but there aren't any other prospects right now.  He keeps sending me mixed signals and goes through periods where he calls/texts a lot.  Then other times, I don't hear from him for awhile.  He says things like, "I'm taking it slow," and then will say, "We need to find you a man."

Stretch Your Style Spending

In this economy, being on top of fashion trends can sometimes seem more like a privilege than a right.  However, for those who are thrifty yet don't want to sacrifice style, there are several ways in which to stay stylish without breaking the bank.  Below, some tips on how to stretch your style spending!

1) Colors and patterns.  Buying clothes and accessories in the latest colors is the easiest and cheapest way to update your wardrobe.  For maximum mileage, get tees, ties, tops, scarves, etc. in the latest colors and patterns for the season. 

Color allows you to easily update your wardrobe without spending too much, and patterns add an infusion of style and personality to any outfit!

2) Accessories.  This is a cheap way to easily update your look - a new scarf, a watch, a brooch, earrings, a belt, or a wallet can easily add a stylish punch to your look.  When wearing accessories, don't go overboard; for instance, one statement piece of jewelry paired with another more understated piece (such as, a statement necklace with simple earrings, or no earrings at all)  is good enough.  Going overboard and piling on too many accessories can spell "overkill" for an otherwise hot look!

Q & A - Is Our Relationship Really Over?

Q. Dear Alannah,

So, I was dating this guy for about a year and a half; it was a pretty serious relationship. We would fight all of the time, though, because he was extremely jealous and always wanted to have his way. His jealousy was to the point where he would accuse me of wanting to get with his friends, my coworkers, or basically, any guy who would get near me. I'm a friendly person, but neither me nor my friends would say I'm particularly flirty, and I don't have a complicated dating history or reputation of being a player.

Regardless of these issues, we did not break up and were trying to make it work, until a few months ago. There was a guy at school who I had become friends with, and who I had started hanging out with more.  I had no romantic feelings towards him, and saw him purely as a friend. He'd be there to listen to my problems when my boyfriend was acting up and giving me stress, and I do admit, it was nice having someone around who understood me and showed support.  Later on though, he confessed that he had feelings for me, and started pushing for me to become his girlfriend, even after I had told him that I didn't see him in a romantic light.  He also started trying to become close to me physically, at which point I drew the line and backed off from our friendship.

Food for Thought: Are Open Relationships A Step Forward, or Backward?

Open relationships.  That taboo relationship topic, in a world where everything else seems fair game.  From the dissecting and oversharing of personal relationship details, to the open discussion of intimate sexual information, much of what was once considered extremely private information between two people is now discussed easily over coffee, or online for all the world to see. 

And yet, when it comes to the topic of open relationships, most speak in hushed or dismissive tones that run contrary to the current attitude of openness.  Is this mostly due to a lack of understanding, lack of experience, disinterest, or even, disdain, for such arrangements?  The majority of people could never imagine being "okay" with their significant other dating someone else - I am one of those people.  However, I have no bias against open relationships, or those who choose to be in one - definitely, to each their own.

Those who are against the idea, though, might argue, "What's the point of being in a relationship if you're going to go out there and date and sleep with other people?  Why not just stay single in the first place and avoid any problems??"  On the other hand, those for the idea could argue back that just because two people are in a relationship doesn't mean that they have to be "bound" to one another, and, if it's agreed that they can casually see others and both agree to the terms, who's business is it but their own?  After all, isn't it better to have such an arrangement than to have a "monogamous" relationship where one or both people are cheating?
