The diaries of others

Today I got sucked in to reading this New York magazine blog called “Sex Diaries.”

I spent hours reading these diaries that, although couched as sex, really are about relationships and love-life mishaps, with plenty of advice-givers in the comments.

The funny thing is – one of these diaries seems so like my own life [in my 20s, not now!] it was scary and I feel real compelled to give this girl some advice but won’t. Some of you will be able to pick that one out.

Anyway, some of the titles are intriguing, I have not read all of these:

“The blissfully engaged web guy”
“The heartbroken summer U.N. intern”
“The possibly cuckolded Wall Street dad”
“The loner guy trying not to be a loner”
“The Jewish Carrie”
“The terrified-of-seeing-the-ex fashion student”
“The guy in the smoking-hot not-quite-in-love relationship”
“The, um, interactive producer in a workplace affair”…

If anything, it’s been a hell of an entertaining way to fill a lazy afternoon.
