Tuffy Luv Gets Down

I kind of hate my best friend. It's not her fault. She's fine. She's nice to me. She's nice to our other friends. I've been living with her since Freshman year (we're Juniors now) and she's good as a roommate. But I just can't stand her. She's just always on my nerves. She complains about everything.

Tuffy Luv Sez: Be Yourself!

Here's what's up. I need you to help me. I NEED you to tell me if I'm being crazy (probable) or right (....also probable *sad face*). So a mere 3 weeks ago, I decided to date one of my best friends. We've been close friends for 5 years, best friends for 2 of those years, and he's liked me for 3. HOWEVER, we never dated because, despite caring about him more than anyone ever, I was never sexually attracted to him.

Tuffy Luv Sez: He's Never Going to Leave Her

I have been hanging out with this guy, Jake, for the last year, we have gotten intimate, but he hasn't asked me out. His crazy ex-girlfriend, Alexis, has been "stalking" me on Facebook and sending me messages about him, which he says are not true.

Tuffy Luv Likes The Cut Of This Girl's Jib

Recently my fiance dumped me. Or I dumped him. Or something. I'm not sure. He tried to blackmail me and shame me into doing things I didn't want to do by threatening to leave me if I didn't comply so I called his bluff and we went down in flames. And then I found out he cheated on me.

Tuffy Luv Sez: Bad Boy, Bad News

Dear Tuffy Luv, I have been hooking up with a long time friend recently but we have never been anything official. He acts like he likes me, takes me out, says he thinks he is falling in love with me and says how he thinks we should be together. He has quite the playboy/bad boy reputation and for a long time and I couldn't let myself be anything more than friends with benefits, so I have denied his requests that I be his girlfriend in fear of getting hurt.

Tuffy Luv Sez: Frenemies Is Old Hat

Dear Tuffy Luv, I moved for my senior year of high school and at the beginning had a little trouble making friends because it's a small town, everyone knows everyone, etc. Finally I did start making some, and one of the first ones was this girl, Peggy. Peggy is one of those people who is overly nice to everyone, so it really wasn't surprising she was one of the first people to approach me.

Tuffy Luv Sez: Old Friend, Shmold Friend

Dear Tuffy Luv, I have a friend who is, like, obsessed with me. I don't know what to do. She calls me all the time and then just wants to talk and talk and I don't really feel like listening. I mean how many times can I hear about her ex-boyfriend?

Tuffy Luv Sez: Friends With No Benefits

Dear Tuffy Luv, I have found myself in a tough situation. My best friend of three years recently sent me a Facebook message out of the blue telling me that she no longer wishes to be friends or in contact with me. Her reasoning was that being friends with me causes her "too much stress" and she has been thinking about it "for the last two months."

Senior Files: The LD(BFF)R

Another week has passed and I’m one week closer to graduation. In ten short days I will stand up, toss my cap in the air, and graduate in front of family, friends, professors…and a bunch of random people I don’t know.

Ask A Dude: Always a Girl Friend, Never a Girlfriend

Hey Dude, My roommate is the type of girl who squeals and obscenely flirts when she runs into a guy she knows, has absolutely no coordination nor common sense, and cannot do a single thing by herself. At the same time, she's notorious for always having a love interest, or multiple ones at the same time....

Senior Files: Life Outside the College Dorm

Today is May 5th. Many of you are wearing sombreros and chugging tequila graduate in a few weeks, or even days. (Did I just freak you out!?) Thankfully I’m on a college quarter system, so I have one more month of bliss before entering the real world. But still, there never seems to be enough time these days for everything I want to do.

Dealing with a Friend in an Unhealthy Relationship

One of the hardest parts of being a friend to someone is actually being a friend to someone. It’s not like when we were little we were taught how to be a friend outside the realms of “sharing is caring.” There are certain sticky situations, like dealing with a friend in a bad or abusive relationship, where no how-to guide can instruct us how to be a true friend.

Tuffy Luv Talks Confidence

Dear Tuffy Luv, I have a close friend in college who is seriously concerned about her likelihood of getting married. She's never been in a relationship and constantly worries that at the rate she's going, she'll never get married before she's 30! She's under the impression that she needs to start seriously dating now (at age 20) in order for her to have a family by the time she's 28.
