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.   25 June 2017: We all get lonely at one point or another, but resorting to sex with your best friend for companionship reasons etc. is a low blow from both of them! Sex with a stranger could have been less devastating? But your best friend categorically jumped at ... (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.   19 June 2017: Personally that's not what I call a golfing trip, it maybe for your husband but it seems an excuse for some of his friends to play up on their partners once a year... and as much as you trust your husband, you also worry that he may eventually be ... (read in full...)

Should I commit to moving? Worried about his cheating in past and about leaving my family

Q.   Hi! I have been in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend for a little over two years. He is 27 and I'm 21, so naturally he has more experience than I do. 6 months into our relationship, he confessed that he had cheated on me, so we broke up...

A.   10 June 2017: It's sweet that he wants you to come be with him, but neither of you are settled and there's that sting of having been cheated on still burning inside your head. It stings for a reason and will continue to sting because it’s not meant to be ignored. ... (read in full...)

A.   9 June 2017: So she couldn't see or adapt to what was fair and reasonable and decided to end things instead. Well doesn't that just show you her true colours with any man she meets? Consider yourself fortunate to be rid of her and please remember not to get a... (read in full...)

A.   3 June 2017: She sure worked her magic thighs around you didn't she? This is pure manipulation and emotional blackmail at work! There is no “acting more as a couple” with someone so self entitled they’d rather see you go broke than pay and be responsi... (read in full...)

Am I selfish for wanting some intimacy?

Q.   My Fiancee and I have been together for a few years now and at first we had a fantastic sex life but now we are down to having sex maybe once every couple of months if that. And even then she doesn't seem to be interested so neither of us enjoy it. ...

A.   3 May 2017: So how much weight has she put on that we're actually talking about? As that'll curve a woman's self-esteem, desire and attractiveness. Nobody produces happy hormones by eating poorly etc. as it slows every component down for that person to do or ... (read in full...)

Q.   Hi. I am 56years old and my boyfriend is 55. I have been with him for 2 1/2years. Lived with him for 14 months out of that time. He has never made love to me although he says he loves me. I also found out, reading his own words that right before ...

A.   30 April 2017: You may have to ask yourself why you're in this relationship and what keeps you there when there's no significant intimacy? Evidently his attention is drawn elsewhere while you supply him with... company, cooking and cleaning? This doesn't sound ... (read in full...)

My husband lies about watching porn and masturbating

Q.   My husband lies about watching porn and masturbating. I know he does this to avoid an argument, and I don't really mind his porn usage - I just don't want him to be lying to me. However we had a massive argument a couple of weeks ago - it came up...

A.   20 April 2017: This has nothing to do with you being insecure or a bit controlling as that's him pointing the finger at you to avoid addressing the issue. He knows he’s pushed the limit of you tolerating his porn and wrist usage. As you know when a person i... (read in full...)

He pressured me for sex, even started undressing me. But disappeared when I revealed my status as a virgin!

Q.   I went for a few dates with a guy. He was very insitent about sex but everytime I refused him he was ok and still wanted more dates with me. He tried to get me at his place after our very first date and at our second too, but i refused. However we ...

A.   18 April 2017: Sweetie he and this type of male who pressure girls have no respect, but one intention in mind. All he wanted was to swirl his penis inside you and call it a day. He utterly played you and played you even more because you're not an easy hook-up ... (read in full...)

A.   15 April 2017: Role reversal never sits well with most men as they're usually the breadwinner and leave the ever important nurturing to his spouse. Sure enough it's still a team effort in any marriage when times are tested... the true colours of who we really ... (read in full...)

A.   15 April 2017: I don’t see him as having any priorities if he takes food from the family table and spends that money on a week-end away for himself. As much as we all need a break to recharge our batteries, the trouble with having financial issues such as yours... (read in full...)

A.   6 April 2017: Enough is enough, what is done is done... do not torture yourself and him for the past by writing another letter. He will not hate you for life; he has his own demons, guilt for his behaviour to bear. Be that now or later as Karma dictates. Let i... (read in full...)

A.   5 April 2017: Put the shoe on the other foot and ask yourself would you rather a husband have similar values, wanting a family and same financial goals etc. like you OR a foolish husband that’s so gorgeous looking yet fights regularly with you? Your husband ... (read in full...)

Q.   i have been with my current boyfriend for 16 yrs. his sister calls from time to time and when she does she always dumps her problems on him, always negative for as long as i have known her, he gives her advise on how to better her life but she ...

A.   5 April 2017: He need not give his sister advice and she need not take it either, because all she wants is a listening ear from her brother whom she evidently misses because he's moved away. If he's the only family she has I understand why she turns to him. ... (read in full...)

Q.   Does sex life tend to decline after a few years? My girlfriend was virgin when she met me. She used to love sex, was extremely naughty and used to want it more than me. Now few years later she isn't really up for it. She says it not me, she does...

A.   5 April 2017: Goodness gracious; she doesn't move at all!? It's no wonder there's a decline in sex... it's so weird no-one has made her wake-up and realise this is not right!? I know there’s her inexperience and we all go through phases but this does not make a ... (read in full...)

A.   13 March 2017: The guy is an utter COWARD; a 2 faced sneaky liar who hasn’t the guts to speak his mind civilly when there’s something bothering him. Yelling an inch from your face is a sign he treats you with contempt and definitely shows he cannot communicate ... (read in full...)

A.   4 March 2017: You could be sending mixed messages to the EX especially when you've seen him off and on in the last 15 months. Even though the EX is frustrating and stubborn, he's been filling a void in your life? To me it's about loneliness, not letting ... (read in full...)
