Drama with two people at work may have undermined my position

Q.   I'm in dire need of some advice on how to handle a situation at my place of employment. I have worked at my job for 21 yrs in various positions. For the last 8 yrs. I have been in the position of Site Supervisor for a Before and After School ...

A.   11 May 2014: It sounds as if you do not currently work directly with children, but supervise the aids who do. Correct? Coworkers, especially if you are supervising, them need to be approached with tact, encouragement and honesty, as well as being willing ... (read in full...)

He said I shouldn't have "put all my eggs in one basket" after I told him what I thought about him! What should I do now?

Q.   Hi everyone I split up with my bf of four years six months ago. I'm 25. The split was amicable as we both wanted different things. For two months I've been chatting to a guy online. We chat most days and I really like him. We've spoke on ...

A.   8 May 2014: So your contact was by phone and online, correct? You did not actually meet, is that right? It sounds like it, and disapp0ointing as it is when you thought you were getting on so well, the fact is, you did not meet, plus there was a distance... (read in full...)

Q.   So my boyfriend and I have being dating for 8 months now. What do I do? I can't afford to give him anymore money:( So my boyfriend is having finical problems at the moment and I've helped him. He works but he doesn't save for a rainy day. He...

A.   2 February 2014: For goodness sake, STOP giving him money! It was HIS choice to put all his money into buying a house without budgeting for his everyday expenses. And now the poor baby wants to have a vacation with his friends? Aaah. Well, you give him a ni... (read in full...)

I feel I'll never attract someone of the same religion because of my looks and personality.

Q.   hi... I am really a lost soul at the moment... I come from a Muslim family. My mom is moderate-liberal Muslim and my dad is relatively conservative. So I've been brought up with conflicting views... Anyways, so I'm at uni and I feel too conservat...

A.   31 January 2014: I think Sageoldguy makes a good point. Having said that, I don't think it's necessarily your religion that's messing up your life. You say you are loud and opinionated and your parents have pointed this out as a turn off for people. They ha... (read in full...)

He seems to have pulled back -- what can I do to fix the relationship?

Q.   I made an account on linked-in few months ago. This guy added me. And we started talking. He asked for my Whatsapp. And at first I did not give him my whats app number, but then, after few weeks, I asked him to message me. So, we started messaging. ...

A.   19 December 2013: Some excellent feed back from WiseOwlE. Yes, this man was incredibly presumptuous. He may in fact have been attracted to you right off the bat, but he obviously wanted to make you over into something that was his ideal woman - i.e., what som... (read in full...)

I'm disappointed my boyfriend's thoughtless Christmas gift to me!

Q.   I accidentally stumbled across the Christmas gift my boyfriend got me (it was addressed to me). It was a very wide, hot pink watch with a heart-shaped face, from a mid-range brand. I'm a little confused, because we have been together for 1 year and ...

A.   18 December 2013: Well, if you make it obvious that you hate the watch you're likely to have a miserable time of it come Christmas. Your best bet is to be as diplomatic as possible and to say something along the lines of, "it is very sweet of you, but, you know, its ... (read in full...)

Has anyone ever out there ever cheated and changed his/her ways?

Q.   I've been having thoughts of guilt because I cheated on my bf 5 months ago. He obviously found out and he broke up with me. I was aware that what I was doing was wrong, but I still kept on cheating because I didn't feel sexually attracted to him ...

A.   18 December 2013: You say you are a "crappy person that I always go back to." You are putting labels - negative ones - on yourself and then living up to them. I notice you said your boyfriend was afraid you would cheat on him with a classmate and so you did. Yo... (read in full...)

LDR--am I just being a lonely jealous girlfriend?

Q.   My boyfriend and I have been best friends for several years. We met online back in 2011 and were just good friends, later that year we finally met and knew we were both interested in each other. He lives in Iowa and i'm in minnesota. We were off and ...

A.   25 November 2013: Long distance relationships are always difficult at the best of times. I know you said you see one another every two or three weeks and in the meantime text and Skype "constantly". would that be every day? or less? As for his boss, he needs t... (read in full...)

Am I being taken for a mug? Should I be less intrusive? Am I too young to play the 'stepmother' figure? Can my feelings for this man actually get past all of these issues? Should I demand more from life?

Q.   Hi, I recently (about six months ago) got with a new boyfriend who has a three year old child. I just want a bit of advise: He moved/ separated from his ex (mum of the child) about ten months ago and moved into his own place. 1. He still ha...

A.   25 November 2013: Sorry, but your situation sounds like an absolute nightmare! Your bf may not have outright AKSED you for money, true, and if he doesn't have the wherewithal to buy food for his daughter, it's understandable, perhaps, that he asks you to buy food... (read in full...)

A.   31 October 2013: NO you most certainly should NOT have sex with your manager! Do you want to lose your job and get a bad reputation into the bargain? If so, go right ahead. However, the whole idea is completely crazy.......... (read in full...)

Q.   Is this a red flag or nothing at all? I found a college friend on Facebook. He's 57 and I'm 52. Looks as if by his profile he's a nice normal guy. Loves animals. Not a million pictures of himself. Nor a million 'friends'. Posts insight...

A.   22 October 2013: That he looks at pictures of beautiful young women is nothing at all. It would be vastly different if he was actually meeting and dating some of them! I wouldn't "approach the subject" at all unless he wants to meet you in person. There isn't an... (read in full...)

A.   21 October 2013: I think CMMP has given you a good answer. I have one thought to add: Pakistan is, for the most part, a Muslim country. Marriages are most often (as I understand) either arranged by parents, or there are, I think Muslim marriage sites where yo... (read in full...)

A.   21 October 2013: You're engaged and thus unavailable. What does it matter whether or not your "read anything into this? Or whether he likes you? You're his patient; he's doing his job and if you just happened to make his Monday morning entertained, so what? I... (read in full...)

A.   10 October 2013: OP: If you don't plan to get in touch with him until you're out of school, why are you concerned as to whetherhesd a "social Helper" part time or not?? It's not relevant. However, it's good that you don't plan to get in touch until such time as ... (read in full...)

A.   8 October 2013: You're not sure what to do next? The answer is very simple: you don't do anything. It wouldn't be appropriate. As Honeypie so rightly points out, this man is there to work and to help students, NOT to date them. In addition there is quite a... (read in full...)

A.   6 October 2013: I'm sorry, but he's using you for sex. Pure and simple. He shows no signs of caring about you as a person. He tells you he "loves" you so that you'll keep putting out for him. Lift your head high, stiffen your backbone and tell yourself... (read in full...)

A.   1 October 2013: Never mind about wondering if you're being paranoid. What you need to do is talk to your wife - in other words, ASK her what YOU can do to make sex better for her and to satisfy her needs. Would she like you to spend time (or more time) playi... (read in full...)

A.   17 September 2013: Over cautious?, Selfish? No, you're being sensible! You have enough money saved to put a down payment on your own home - and that is what you want to do - whereas he has no savings, no desire (let alone the means!) to buy and is teed off at you b... (read in full...)

A.   15 September 2013: Well, it's always possible that he MIGHT be thinking he wants to take it beyond strictly FWB. On the other hand, I think if he did, he would have come out and said something directly. Tell us: when he's asking you to come over more frequently ... (read in full...)

My boyfriend's ex lover made me cringe when I had to see her again.

Q.   I really need other people's opinion on this situation. My boyfriend and I live in his room sharing a flat with his flatmate. I knew that a girl who he had sex with 5 months ago, was coming to our small city. She needed a place to stay for one nigh...

A.   14 September 2013: It's hard to know why your boyfriend felt "horrible" about not letting her stay with you. Perhaps as you say, if she brought some things for him from his hometown (stuff he'd left behind, perhaps, or were they gifts??) Be that as it may, you ... (read in full...)

Does she want to fire me?
