Jessica Schimm is a beloved 7x7 online intern who recently graduated from SF State. This is the first of three posts she'll be writing about what it's like to navigate the tough patch of life between college and the real world, without completely freaking out.
I’m a 32-year-old gay guy who’s been seeing a very sexy “f-buddy” once a week for about two months. Even though it’s just sex, we often spend the night together and our encounters feel very intimate. He talks a lot about spending more time together, traveling, going to concerts, etc. He stayed over last Friday, and on Sunday morning, I texted him to suggest we have brunch and got no response. Yet I know he'll get in touch the next time he wants sex. I'm finding myself thinking about him all the time.

Available at their Pac Heights store and Barneys counter, Limette 37 is an "olfactive roller coaster," with fragrances as diverse as the Bay Area landscape—bergamot, jasmine, petit grain, clove, vetiver, tonka beans, and musks. This one's for your growing collection.
Where: Le Labo, 2238 Fillmore St.
For someone due to give an imminent speech about his latest book, Po Bronson seems at ease.
There are currently 1.2 billion cows on the planet. Naturally, I wondered how much environmental impact they are having. A Japanese study showed that producing a kilogram of beef leads to the emission of greenhouse gases with a global warming potential equivalent to 36.4 kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2). I then wondered how this compared to parking.
When I met my girlfriend six months ago, I knew we had different eating habits. She's a vegan and also wheat-free, while I basically eat anything I want. At first, it didn't seem like a problem: we're usually able to find something that works for her on regular menus, I like vegetarian restaurants, and when we cook together it works if she just skips the meat course I'm having. But as we inch closer to moving in together, with an eye toward marriage, I'm having doubts.
