Once I found DW I went back and read City Wendy from the beginning… I felt a little creepy about it, but it was awesome seeing Wendy go from single girl in the city to clearly in love in an LDR, then moving to NYC!FireStarParticipant

@AP I’m currently obsessed with the Karlstad sectional from Ikea. We will be prurchasing one with any wedding gift money we get.AmandaParticipant
One more for CNN–>TF–>DW. So glad that I don’t have to go to TF anymore. The DW community is awesomeBriarRoseParticipant
In 2010 (I think) a friend sent me a link to Dater X on the Frisky, which I had never heard of, and that is what led me to Dear Wendy. Followed you here, and have had the pleasure of watching this site grow and evolve!SixtyFourParticipant
CNN -> TheFrisky -> DWothyParticipant
I came from the Frisky, but found TF via many many friends on facebook regularly posting articles.Addie PrayParticipant
But how did people find DW after the Frisky? Because Wendy’s not on the Frisky anymore, right?TanyaParticipant
I actually found the Frisky through DearWendy. Her column was featured on the CNN website and I found the Frisky after I clicked through it. I kept going to the Frisky just to read Wendy’s column and I also visited her City Wendy blog. I was happy to see that eventually she moved on from that crappy website and gave us a much bigger dose of her columns.honeybeegoodParticipant
I have an advice column addiction. It started innocently enough- as a kid I would read Ann Landers every day in the paper. Then I progressed to Dan Savage and Dear Abby archives, before I knew it I was spending hours at a time reading comments. I’m usually a lurker, but somehow the magicalness of the DW community has brought me out of my shell (hive?)
I think I originally found you on TF from googling LDR advice. When I found out you also did advice of the QA variety it was love at first column. It was a little annoying having to read other TF headlines in search of my DW so when you announced your own website I was over the moon.
However long later I’ve moved over 600 miles to the same city as my LDR and we are happy as clams, so uh thanks! =)d2Participant
