Sexless in the City

Sometimes reading romance novels doesn’t quite prepare you for a love life...

For this 30-year-old urbanite, love is always a misadventure: The Harvard Lickwit, Hippie the Groper, the 5% Man, and the Ad Weasel. These and many other men wander in and out of her life — but never her bed.

Help from the parentals

Boy, if my fam ain’t sendin’ books, they’ve got something you should listen to. This weekend’s suggestion: “I kissed dating goodbye and marriage hello.” That’s right, it’s a 3-part talk-show series with Josh Harris ... and his wife Shannon.

I’m curious to hear how the timing of writing his book fit into his marriage. I mean, he wrote a book on dating ... and eventually got married. Lauren Winner wrote a book on sex ... and got married before its release. A friend recently got a book deal for a project on late-30s dating, and claims to have recently met the man she’ll marry.

Gee, maybe if I write a book on sex or dating .... Hm.

Naw, God probably wouldn’t fall for that. Damn.
