The One Semester of Spanish Love Song

Walking around the new neighborhood yesterday, I realized two things:  1) I know more Spanish than I think I do, but 2) maybe it’s time to invest in that second semester.

Who does Captain Awkward turn to for advice?

The Sexy Gay Jesus, naturally. Thanks for the great answer and the great music, L.!  What I took away from this video is that I should behave more like the breaking-up-guy and less like the breaking-up-girl.

My other Girl Scout skills are rusty, […]

Reader question #52: More Art of No

Hi Captain Awkward, Thanks for writing awesome advice. Your blog has become a primary go-to for assessing awkward human interactions! I’ve been trying to sort out how to handle an online dating situation. I went on a date with a guy a little over a week ago, and while he seemed nice enough at first, […]

Reader question #51: I’m insecure about my girlfriend’s feelings for me.

Hello Captain! I have been reading your blog and loving your smart, thoughtful advice.  I was wondering if you could give me some help with my problem. This may be a bit of a ‘my diamond shoes pinch’ problem but I’d appreciate your advice because I’m tying myself up in knots.  I am in a […]

Reader question #50: I’m a 27-year-old virgin and I’m mostly okay with that but sometimes I feel like a loser.

First things first.  Roseanne is totally badass and has just gone to the top of the Famous People I Would Like To Have A Drink With list.
