Can you stay friends after having a one night stand?

Q.   About a month ago, I met a guy on a dating site. We would talk from night to morning every day. I kind of like him, but he rarely talked about himself. I was curious about him; therefore, I checked on him on Facebook and found out that he has a ...

A.   20 July 2017: In general, no, you don't have sex with your friends. People you have had sex with are not your friend anymore, they are other thing (you name it). If you regard someone as your friend that implies that you haven't had sex with him. In your cas... (read in full...)

He's asking about people I've slept within the past 2 years!

Q.   I've recently got into a relationship with a guy i've been seeing on and off for a long time. We've only been together a couple of months officially but he's began to ask about people i've slept with over the past two years. He's quite insecure as ...

A.   9 July 2017: Honestly, the fact that this isn't relevant to you doesn't matter, since it's obviously relevant to him. I'd say that his obsession with your sexual past comes with the package. If you want to take this guy you have to accept this fact. You can't ... (read in full...)

I am much less experienced sexually and it bothers me.

Q.   I am a lot less experienced sexually than my girlfriend. She has had atleast 13 past sexual partners aswell as a long term boyfriend. Unfortunately her efforts to try and be open and honest about her sexual past (which I respect her for) led to me ...

A.   9 July 2017: The number of guys she's slept with seems to be pretty high. Since you don't have any experience I'd say that certainly most of those guys were better in bed. Since experience is key for that. But that doesn't mean you are less that them. Shou... (read in full...)

A.   9 July 2017: I constantly see women in your situation. And what I see in those cases (not sure about you) is they keep dating good looking, attractive, outspoken men. Sadly those guys are usually players. Do yourself this question: is the kind of guy I'm looking ... (read in full...)

A.   9 July 2017: A relationship between two people is usually complicated. What about a three people relationship? Yes, common sense says this is going to end bad. Most probably your friend is going to get insecure about himself, if he can't perform while you keep... (read in full...)

Am I foolish to forgive my girlfriend for cheating?

Q.   In January I found out that I'd been offered a promotion at work. A fantastic opportunity to change my life, but it involved 6 months living abroad. My girlfriend of 4 years didn't want me to go initially, but after talking things through she agreed ...

A.   9 July 2017: I agree with aunt honesty here. 99% of the time a couple doesn't work again after cheating. And by "doesn't work" I don't mean you can't be together. But it will never be the same. And it will never be even close to "the same". You won't be able to ... (read in full...)

A.   18 June 2017: I'm not an expert at all, I just read that herpes type 2 is transmitted only by sexual intercourse. But I'm pretty sure a person can be infected with herpes for years before showing any symptoms. You could have been infected by a previous partner ... (read in full...)

How do I tell a good friend that I don't like him romantically?

Q.   So..I have a guyfriend whom I've known for over 5 years. He once told me in the past he liked me but I didnt feel the same way. I never did. He texted he likes me and wants a response. How should I say I don't like him romantically. He's a good ...

A.   18 June 2017: You say: "I don't like you romantically. I see you as a friend only" and you have to be ready to see him go. He won't stay as a friend, and if he does he's going to suffer a lot. You should allow that to happen.... (read in full...)

A.   18 June 2017: Well, probably you want to wait a little longer before you ask a direct question. Because after five month you could definitely ask her for sex. But then she could say no. And how will you feel if she says no. Even if she says not right now? L... (read in full...)

A.   18 June 2017: You are in your right. No one (or at least most people) wants to be reminded of their SO having sex with someone else. He should have dropped that long time ago and got a new one.... (read in full...)

A.   19 January 2016: Regarding Denize's comment: I don't think dating your boyfriend's long time friend is a good idea. Unless you honestly feel that guy is the only one you will ever get interested in. If your boyfriend loves you he'll be devastated. Also from what you ... (read in full...)

Q.   This is a very strange problem. I've been with my boyfriend (now fiancé) for 2.5 years and life is perfect.... Except I'm obsessed with his ex which I have been since day 1. To start with I recognised it was due to their 4 year relationship ending 3 ...

A.   19 January 2016: What you are going through is a usual case of retroactive jealousy. Which is extremely common. You will get hundred of useless replies telling you how childish or crazy your behavior is. But you are going to a kind of OCD and your thoughts aren't ... (read in full...)

A.   17 January 2016: It looks like you gave him the more valuable gift ever. You made his dream come true. And he passed away happy about this. Who cares if your love for him wasn't exactly as he thought? You did this out of love anyway. If you don't want the things he ... (read in full...)

A.   3 February 2014: I mostly disagree with previous replies. I don't think it's your fault nor I think you should ever talk with her again. In the first place you don't date your partner's friend even after ending a relationship. If you really fall so deeply in love ... (read in full...)

A.   8 October 2012: She is lying, in part. I mean, it is too obvious that you are the one who chooses to whom loose your virginity to. And so, she doesn't has to worry about what happens if you break up later. I guess girls see some guys like "fuck buddies" and other ... (read in full...)
