I’ve been dating this guy from work for some time now. We have been out in five dates … and nada. He has not made a pass at me. No kissing, no hugging, no anything. When we go out, he pays for everything and at work we e-mail each other all day long. He just asked me to accompany him to a wedding, and all my amigas say that a guy wouldn’t take you to a wedding unless he’s serious about you. But I wonder what’s the deal … Does he like me or not?

It was a low-key Saturday night. I was home, tired from the workweek and shaking my bonbon the weekend before at LQ’s. I may be an empowered 31-year-old, but I can't party like a rockstar any more! I lay in bed, flipping through channels, when my phone beeped indicating I had a text message. Maybe it was Mr. Alcohol, I thought. He had stuck to the 3-day rule and then some. I looked at my Blackberry screen. Nope, it wasn’t Mr. Alcohol.

Sometimes I wish I were still 22. That way I could get with a cute 23-year-old without a second thought. The cutie in question was none other than Mr. Alcohol. After planting a smackeroo on his lips at LQs, he continued to dazzle me with his smile and good looks. It was his birthday celebration and that's how I found out that he had just turned a tender 23.
"How old are you?" He asked. I looked up at him and hesitated. Should I divulge my actual age or lie?
I went the honest route. "I'm 31," I answered proudly.

So off I went to LQ’s in search of some fun and entertainment.

After the holidays, people usually put on a few pounds. All that turkey, pernil and coquito has to go somewhere! This is great for me since I'm of the opinion that my booty needs a little more padding. More padding usually means I receive much more attention from my flavor of choice—Latinos!

Tomorrow ushers in a new year and my romantic life has already started off with a bang. And by bang I mean an explosion of weirdness. To start off with, a bald, 50-something year old man totally hit on me while I was visiting my aunt in the ICU. As doctors were running numerous tests on my tia, he turned to me and said, "You look good! Real good!" What a sin verguenza!

For the first time, a gay couple has married in Latin America. After pursuing a legal battle earlier this year, a court in Buenos Aires, ruled in favor of Alex Freyre and Jose Maria di Bello, deeming a ban on same-sex marriage illegal and ordering proper authorities to grant the couple a marriage license. But on the night before what was supposed to be their Dec. 1st wedding day, another court filed an injunction, halting the marriage process for the couple.

I’m 23 years old and I’m getting married in two months, but I’m really scared because I’m a virgin. I have no experience whatsoever. Maybe it was wrong to hold on to my virginity this long, but I’m old- fashioned (that’s why I never had sexual relations with my novio). What should I do to get rid of my fears?

I’ve been married for just about eight months, and my husband wants to go out sometimes to hang out with his friends. My question is, should I let him go once in a while? He’s Caucasian and thinks its okay for husbands and wives to do things on their own. As a Latina, I was taught differently. According to my father, I should not let my husband go out because he might leave me for another mujer.
