The Ex Factor
By Sujeiry Gonzalez | 02/18/2010 - 14:14

I’ve always been haunted by my ex-boyfriends. Even if they did me dirty or just weren't that into me; they always come back into my life somehow.

The latest ex to pop back into my life was my first serious boyfriend. First BF and I were together for seven months in 2003. It ended because we were in different places. He was reveling in politics while I was left wondering if our passions and interests aligned. We parted ways, but not before taking a "break," having lots of break-up sex, yelling and crying buckets of tears (unfortunately me, not him).

Sex Talk with Dr. Charley: Put a Ring on It?
By Dr. Charley Ferrer | 02/17/2010 - 16:24

Dear Dr. Charley:

I’m 35 and have been with my man for six years. We have been living together for two and I’m more than ready for him to put a ring on it . . . but my guy isn’t. His parents went through a rough divorce around the time that we got together and he keeps telling me he isn’t sure if he believes in the institution of marriage anymore.

A Blessing in Disguise
By Sujeiry Gonzalez | 02/16/2010 - 19:00

The day before Valentine's Day I woke up later than usual. My cell phone usually beeps as frequently as an ER doctor's and almost always wakes me up—yet there it was, totally lifeless. As soon as I rose out of my slumber, I picked it up from my bedside bureau and stared at the screen. Then I saw those three, tragic letters: GSM. My cell phone carrier grew tired of giving me service without payment and had cut me off!

Just Not That Into Him
By Sujeiry Gonzalez | 02/11/2010 - 17:51

I consider myself a pretty open-minded person, but I can’t force myself to like a guy. I’ve never been able to flip my hair at the sight of just any man; I’m just not that kind of flirt! So when Mr. Gringo and I went on our first date I felt like an anxiety attack coming on.

I wrestled myself out of bed and met him at Lilies. I walked in and saw him standing there—charcoal coat, long scarf and Stella in hand. He looked older than I remembered and not so cute, but I stuck around and I strolled over to him with a smile.

RIP: Adan Gonzalez

They say you don’t know a good thing until you lose it. They say we ponder alternate endings and question whether we showed the people we lost how much we really loved them. They are right. It's all I'm thinking about right now.

By Mariela Rosario | 02/08/2010 - 14:21

Doctor Charley Ferrer didn't set out to become the only Latina sex and relationship doctor in the United States. In fact, her love of psychology came about almost by accident. Ferrer went back to school to finish her degree in order to demand more money at her job and had to take some extra credits, so she signed up for a Psychology class. One thing led to another and now Dr. Charley is a doctor of human sexuality, holds a Masters degree in counseling psychology and certification as a clinical sexologist under her belt.

First Date Jitters
By Sujeiry Gonzalez | 02/04/2010 - 14:05

El Gringo continued contacting me and his borderline sarcastic messages started to get on my nerves. A meeting between his “friend” and I was finally arranged. We decided on Lillies, a cute little bar in Union Square. Having drinks was my idea. I didn’t to commit to dinner since that would require conversing for hours and I just wasn’t sure I wanted to spend 3 entrees with whoever appeared on this date. If it was El Gringo, like I expected, I didn’t know much about him. I had no idea what he did for a living, how old he was or what his astrological sign was!
