It was to be a toast to her witty, on-point, irreverent and unabashedly feminist advice on everything from getting rid of cheating boyfriends to reconnecting with Latin culture.

Latina's Executive Editor on Remembering Dolores Prida, Columnist & Latina Family Member
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 01/20/2013 - 18:16

I met Dolores Prida shortly after I joined Latina as associate editor, in 2004. She worked mostly from home but had a cubicle in our Times Square office, and she would come in about once a week, usually unannounced, to work and catch up with everyone. I was one of the many young Latinas who read her column in the magazine religiously and wondered what the woman behind the witty and wise advice would be like in person.

Dolores dice...A Few Good Men
By Mariela Rosario | 06/25/2008 - 17:42

A FEW GOOD MEN

Dear Dolores: I’m a single Latina rapidly approaching the big four-O and having a very hard time meeting a good man. Most men in my age bracket come loaded with baggage. They’re either separated or divorced with children. I don’t have a problem with this, as long as the men have a good and healthy relationship with their children and the mothers, but most do not. I hate the bar/club scene. So, how do I find an eligible man?

Dolores Dice: Life Is Not a Fairy Tale
By Mariela Rosario | 06/11/2008 - 16:46


ONCE UPON A TIME

Dear Dolores: I met a guy who lives down the street and we hit it off really well. We hung around with each other from time to time, had a few drinks and got to know each other better. He told me he wanted me to be his queen, but I wanted to wait to see what was going to happen. We began seeing each other more frequently and started to mess around. Now, all of a sudden, I don’t see him at all. He doesn’t even call. What went wrong?
