Dear Crabby is a weekly column featuring the loveable but cantankerous Crabby, full of relationship advice for the lovesick. Let’s read what advice she has this week for our poor reader.
A little background might be in order first. I am not a virgin, but I’m not exactly what you’d call wise in the ways of love. I’ve been a bit of a sheltered girl and, even though I’ve been going to college the past few years and have had lots of freedom, I still act like I’m living under my parents’ roof. I’m a bit of an introvert and so, when my friends decided to do something pretty outlandish, I didn’t exactly chicken out, but there was no way I would ever do that.
See, my friends want to go to a place where something rather…questionable happens. It’s called OM for short—orgasmic meditation. Some people take it pretty seriously and I guess it’s supposed to be therapeutic, but I just can’t get past the idea that a complete stranger would be touching me DOWN THERE!!! My friends are taking a road trip to do it, but I just can’t. I can’t! No way.
But…a guy I’ve crushed on for a long time has offered to perform his own version of OM on me. I wish I was kidding, because how embarrassing. This guy—he’s sweet and good looking and WOW! But I freaked out when he offered.
Anyway…part of me is titillated and wonders if I’d be stupid to not take him up on his offer. Will he think I’m a slut? Is it one of those things I should just do to say I did it? Or am I better off telling him absolutely not? But what if I regret it?
Yikes. Please help!

You might not need a session of OM, but I’m wondering why you’re hesitant about pursuing a man who is “sweet and good looking and WOW” when it’s clear that he’s into you? You might be an introvert, but don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Talk with Mr. Wow and let him know you’d like to chat a little bit about his offer. You never know what might come of it.
Dear Crabby will address reader letters every Monday.
