I met a guy while out for my birthday with friends. Before the night was over, we’d made out, he’d asked me what I wanted for my birthday and asked me back to his place (I let him know that’s not my style). After texting each other for a week, I reminded him about his birthday offer and asked him to join me for a movie date....

I'm 18 and my best friend is a guy. We met through Facebook and got to know each other by talking every day for two months before he asked me out. We then met in person but by then he had a girlfriend. Now he and I go to parties every weekend; we've kissed and talked about how our lives would be different if we were dating. When...

My daughter has been the antithesis of sugar, spice, and everything nice lately. We've had plenty of feet stomping, fist shaking when she doesn't get her way (which, incidentally, is often.)
I'll be honest...m'ija impresses me just as much as she frustrates me when she tries to run the show. I am, after all, hoping to raise a chingona...

Let's start with the obvious, okay?

As a bulimic teenager, I learned to stop throwing up in the shower. The running water masked the sound of my purging but sometimes I wasn't diligent enough in my clean-up. My parents whispered; I heard them, so I just stopped. No one ever brought it up.
I've seen friends and relatives ignore health issues like diabetes and obesity. Suggested...

I popped my cherry.
That sounds way less dirty than you think, seeing as how I'm referring to my former Hispanic Heritage Month Virgin status. I'm first generation Mexican-American. With la familia...

Who's your #LatinoHero? I've asked the question of Dimelo readers and am thrilled to see responses sharing your stories about those who have inspired you.

If I had a dime for every time a Dimelo reader asked me how to "feel" more Latina (or how to come to terms with celebrating our own definition of cultural identity), I'd have a lot of dimes. The questions may be worded differently to reflect personal experience, but the common denominator is the same: a feeling of disconnect between our dual identities as...
