Dimelo: "Is It Okay For Girls to Ask Out Guys?"
Dimelo: "Is It Okay For Girls to Ask Out Guys?"

Dear Pauline,

My best friend and I are having an argument right now that we've turned into a bet. I say it's okay to ask a guy out and that waiting and hoping is old-fashioned thinking. She says being the one to ask makes a girl look slutty and desperate and that waiting for him to notice you might be old-fashioned, but that that alone doesn't make it wrong. We are 16 and we've never had a boyfriend or been on a date yet.

Dimelo: "I've Never Had a Boyfriend"
Dimelo: "I've Never Had a Boyfriend"

Dear Pauline, 

I'm almost 23 and am a fourth-year-college student who spends more time in the psych lab than I do on the dating scene. I've never had a boyfriend and, to be honest, I've never even been on a date, although a waiter at a restaurant I go to likes to flirt with me. There's also a soccer-player I know who has talked me a lot since freshman year. I'd like to get to out there more but am not sure how to do that without losing my integrity and self-respect.

Summer Escape: This Weekend I Fell in Love with Sag Harbor & Some Seriously Cute Swimwear

But that's not the only thing that's been stressing me out lately. Summer is upon us in NYC and that means you basically sweat your entire commute to and from work. Just imagine walking from your apartment to the subway in 85+ degree weather with 80% humidity, getting on a packed train (Read: Lots of body heat) and then having to walk from the train stop to your office in the scorching weather again.
