Newly single students should savor every moment of free time

Posted on May 16, 2014 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Dear Harlan:

I just got out of a two-and-a-half-years relationship that was very much me and my ex and our little love story. I didn’t give up school or the chance to study abroad (or maintaining a rather high GPA), but I ignored most of my friends. Now I’m a second-semester senior who’s pretty darn lonely. I feel like I’m starting over from scratch in terms of looking for new people to hang out with. I have two actual friends left — one of…


Straight Guy Can’t Think Straight After Making Out With Gay Roommate

Posted on May 15, 2014 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Dear Harlan:

I think I’m falling for my gay roommate. Last weekend, we went to a house party and got completely plastered. When we got home, we were getting ready to crash, and we managed to butt heads. We laughed it off, but one thing led to another and I ended up having the most intense make-out session of my life. We woke up the next morning and realized what had happened. I flipped out a little bit and told him I needed space. He understood, and we haven’t talked…


Friends Have a Right To Have Annoying Friends

Posted on May 14, 2014 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Dear Harlan:

My friend Cheryl has become friends with a couple I'll call "Jack and Jill." They are very obnoxious and think it's funny to insult people and verbally "poke them" to get a reaction. I can't stand socializing with them. They are rude 100 percent of the time and also are extreme extroverts who never shut up. I have told Cheryl how I feel, and her response was that she enjoys their company. Do I have to dump Cheryl as a friend, or is there…


East Coast versus West Coast roommate

Posted on May 12, 2014 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Dear Harlan:

My new roommate moved in about six weeks ago. She is originally from California, and I live out east. She is a wonderful person, and I love being roommates with her. The “problem” is that I introduced her to my friends, and they all like her a lot. She has gotten really close to some of them, and it bothers me, although I’m not sure why. She sees some of them more than I do. I feel a bit ridiculous for feeling jealous or weird, but I can’t help it. I’m…

I am a teacher at a school for students with learning disabilities and teach our college strategies class. I have been reading your book and the workbook and have just purchased enough books to use it as our curriculum for this semester! Many students are shocked when they find out what college can really be like and my students have the added pressure of dealing with academic and social issues that go along with their disabilities.  I am looking forward to using this book to help them!

I think I have gifted a copy of your book to every college bound friend and their parent. Even helped my mom calm down a little.

It's making the connection between psychology and the court system, things like that. People also relate it to the "Criminal Minds" TV show.

That's me on a great day haha! By the way, what I have read of the book is great! I will be a peer leader/student teacher for freshmen in the fall. I wish I had a book like this when I started.

Actually my daughter works at EStreet Denim in Highland Park and met you and your wife and child about 4 years ago. She is now 23 but started her college career at NYU in jazz performance(flute), transfered to Middlebury and is now graduating in Art History. Like many her age, however, she is continuing her education in LA at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. She realized, after traveling for 5 weeks in India with 3 professors that life in academia was not for her. Is your wife in private practice?
