I'm Andie and I'm surviving life until I can really start to live it :)

Karma does happen:

My dad was a married woman's other guy for only a few weeks (about a decade before my mum met him), then realised he wasn't okay with helping her betray her husband. His friend became her other guy, husband came home while they were at it, the guy jumped out of the window and the husband knew, so grabbed a bicycle, chased him and punched him once, going 20mph, so it knocked him out. A couple of relationships later, after getting £15,000 in debt to help a woman leave her abusive husband and getting in a relationship with her, my dad came back from a holiday with his parents and found her with another guy.

A.   23 June 2017: Also, "I want him to fall in love with me, I want to play him, some how, turn the table on him and slowly pull the carpet from underneath his feet" is cruel, even if he's done it to someone else, which you don't know he has - he may have been ... (read in full...)

A.   23 June 2017: You're a bit old to think you can "make" someone do/feel something. He wants sex. That's it. If you try to get more out of it, you will get hurt. Ignore him and cut contact.... (read in full...)

My family doesn't approve of my boyfriend

Q.   Hello, I met this guy online, nearly 2 years ago. He's korean and I'm polish. There are quite a few things that my parents refuse to accept about him and they constantly try to make me break up with him. The main arguments are his short height, th...

A.   23 June 2017: My problem with this is that he is an adult and you aren't. In 5 years, it wouldn't matter, but it does now. It's also unlikely that this will go anywhere because you're too young to afford to travel to see each other enough to make a relation... (read in full...)

I'm being bullied. How do I stand up to these girls?

Q.   I had an argument with this girl, let's call her Nelly. It was about 2 months ago now. When we were arguing I told her to "peice out" in other words go away. Now every time I walk past her in school, her and her friend always shout at me "peice out ...

A.   22 June 2017: You need to try to be mature about this. Fighting is never an option and you should try not to swear. They are just being annoying and it won't be fun if it doesn't bother you. Ignore them. Don't look, speak or swear when they're being silly. I... (read in full...)

We don't want kids or pregnancy but husband is against abortion. Help!

Q.   My husband and I never wanted children. I dislike children and the thought of being pregnant. He is fine with them but prefers not to have any of his own. We have always used condoms. I have never used any other kind of birth control. I do no...

A.   22 June 2017: Your body, your choice. I think you should still talk to your doctor about birth control before ruling it out. However if you want a permanent option, go for it. Your husband isn't being selfish, but he isn't being realistic either. Keeping ... (read in full...)

Is getting back with him a vain hope?

Q.   Hi everyone, I have a question regarding an ex that I am still in love with. We broke up in March. He said he "wasn't in the right mindset to have a girlfriend, I have to sort some stuff out" and "this doesn't mean we can't get back together." ...

Q.   I met this guy in Vegas over two months ago. He approached me and my friends at a club. I told him from the beginning I was married and he respected that . The night went on and everyone was having a great time. He would dance next to me because he ...

A.   21 June 2017: OP, you saw pictures, but you did *not* know him. You had an adolescent fling. Your husband is controlling/abusive, but that doesn't excuse cheating. You need to leave him and get counselling for yourself. Do not stay with him.... (read in full...)

A.   18 June 2017: You got engaged about 8 months too soon, at the least. You found out he was cheating, but you're still with him. You know he's no good, so why stay? Getting "revenge" just makes you as "cheap and nasty" as he is. You don't gain anything; just l... (read in full...)

Why did he give up his trip with the boys?

Q.   My boyfriend turned down a golf trip with the guys next weekend. It's out of town and they go every year. He said it's because he knows I worry and he doesn't want to upset me. In the past I have given him grief. Many of the guys go to strip club...

A.   18 June 2017: He did it because you've always given him grief about it. He wanted to skip the nagging this time by not going. If you trust him, encourage him to go and control your paranoia (don't say anything to him about doubting his loyalty). If you don't tr... (read in full...)

A.   18 June 2017: Stuffing a sock in your bra. OP, having big boobs is actually a curse. Exercise hurts, bras don't support very well, some guys stare in a creepy way, you can get back problems, etc. Embrace what you have - you're young and great the way yo... (read in full...)

A.   18 June 2017: No need for the sarcasm, OP. You asked for advice and this is what we are giving you, whether it flatters your plan or gives you a different perspective. The only question you have to ask yourself is "do I desperately want a baby?" If you "kin... (read in full...)

A.   18 June 2017: Why can't you give her pleasure sometimes without her having to get you off too? The pressure of someone else's sex drive could lower hers because she's not necessarily feeling the passion from you, just the horniness. Do you go on dates? Do ... (read in full...)

A.   17 June 2017: Don't date him. You have to really be prepared for it, if you do. If he's a good dad, his baby will come first - you'll never be the priority. If he puts you first, he's not a great dad and you probably shouldn't stay with him long-term.... (read in full...)

Creepy old men are attracted to me.

Q.   My question is why am I so appealing to creepy older men? I am 17 and will be 18 next month. People often think I'm older than I actually am, based on the way I think, dress and just from my face and body. Most are shocked when I tell them I'm only ...

A.   17 June 2017: Unfortunately, most women experience this. It's the catcalling-type culture that many men grow up with and women get stuck experiencing. I think self-defence classes are a good idea because it can help you feel stronger and safe. Also, pepper s... (read in full...)

A.   17 June 2017: Why haven't you blocked your ex? Also, people who have cheated before are likely to cheat again, so you took that risk with your ex, even though you didn't deserve it. I think you need therapy to help - or at least a self-help book on trust is... (read in full...)

A.   17 June 2017: Stop having contact with the guy you're infatuated with. Go to another store or just stop going to his checkout/area. Get couples' therapy or a divorce. Abuse is never okay, but it doesn't excuse cheating either.... (read in full...)

A.   17 June 2017: The way you're planning is like a business. Being prepared is good, but most mums go insane if they have 3 years off work with just baby and life doesn't go to plan the way your meticulous planning relies on. Unless you both *desperately want* a ... (read in full...)

A.   17 June 2017: Having a child isn't something you do for yourselves, OP :/ Planning ahead is great, but it really seems like you're planning for a business or event, rather than a baby. Please go to counselling first, just to make sure you'd be having a baby... (read in full...)

A.   16 June 2017: This is a nightmare. You've barely dated each other and have both cheated. That's not stable enough for a baby to be brought up around. Please get into couples' therapy and both of you need to learn how to be responsible because getting pregnant now ... (read in full...)

A.   16 June 2017: You wait until it feels like the right time. If you're making out, put your hand on her leg and see what she does. It's odd to just blurt it out if you're not doing anything romantic. There's no rush, OP. Make sure you have condoms, though. ... (read in full...)

A.   16 June 2017: It's her choice. You can't make her not go to the university of her choice. If you want that much independence and don't want to be as serious as she does (I can understand; you're too young to get married and move in, in my opinion), you should b... (read in full...)

A.   16 June 2017: OP, you've posted several times about past friends, dodgy exes, your materialistic past and the overall unhappiness. It's okay to come here, but you need therapy in person. You don't take our advice and you need someone in person to tell you the ... (read in full...)

Boyfriend wanted to use an old tube of lubricant during sex but I got upset because he's used it with previous partners. Am I being silly?

A.   16 June 2017: As long as it's in date (yes, lubes can have expiry dates), it's fine. Just replace it yourself - not you getting rid of it, just buy a new one for the two of you and he can keep the old one. It's just lube. Don't get me wrong; it's not a nice ... (read in full...)

A.   16 June 2017: "I might as well not have children and problem solved" is a childish retort. However, you are talking about having a "compromise baby", not one you both really want. That's not fair to the baby or either of you. Your long term goals don't match. Y... (read in full...)

A.   14 June 2017: Shifting? It's a good idea at your age to stay away from being remotely nude. It can easily get out of hand and go too far. Stick your ground. If he likes you enough, he'll stay and won't bring it up for at least a few more months. If he sa... (read in full...)

We meet just once a month for sex. This isn't a healthy relationship, right? Should I let him go?

Q.   I've been dating this guy for about 9 months and he works full time. I only see him once a month and when I do see him it's only for sex. I understand that he has a crazy work schedule but once a month? We've had problems before because he was ...

A.   13 June 2017: OP, the only fair way to handle this is a divorce. You expect people to tell you how cheating is fine and you should continue to pursue it. No, OP - it doesn't work that way. You need to both get divorced. If she won't leave her husband, she just... (read in full...)

A.   13 June 2017: Why do you have unprotected sex? Are you prepared to have an abortion or be a very young mother? Even if you are on birth control or have the coil, it can fail. That's why you should always use two forms of BC and contraception until you're r... (read in full...)

A.   13 June 2017: It's ironic because he's old (as in someone you used to know), but he's new, that's why you're infatuated. He's not real; he's a fantasy. This isn't love. Don't cheat on your husband and family. They deserve better. Seek couples' counsel... (read in full...)

A.   13 June 2017: What you both need to do is divorce your spouses. Neither of you are happy, so whether this relationship would work or not, your marriages aren't and shouldn't be kept going as a Plan B. Only after both of you are divorced could anything be attem... (read in full...)
