What do we have together? He will not confirm if we are in a relationship.

Q.   Hi cupids any chance of a little help?? Been seeing a guy for 5 months now, it’s been ok-ish. I've began to fall for him and I’m not sure I’m doing the right thing allowing myself to as he's so complicated. He’s got a lot going for him, he ...

A.   7 February 2013: Don't ask him what he wants, or ask him to tell you if he thinks you are or aren't in a relationship. Tell him what you want. Tell him what you aren't happy about, tell him what you want, and then see what he does, not what he says. You can igno... (read in full...)

A.   7 February 2013: Firstly, I can imagine that what she is doing would be experienced by you as hurtful, even cruel. She is not being mindful of how hurtful it would be, for the person you are with to to turn to you and say, there's better out there than you, you're ... (read in full...)

Desperate - wife found a pic and says she is leaving

Q.   My wife and I have had a very close relationship - and we have both been known to get a little freaky regarding sex. We both use porn (me more than her), but she has never had any issues w/it at all. I recently created a "locked" folder on my pho...

A.   5 February 2013: I agree, its probably an over reaction, but what does my opinion matter, and in the face of her wanting to leave you, what does your opinion matter? The opinion you need to be listening to right now is hers. You need to find out how she feels and ... (read in full...)

Was it out of line for my therapist to tell me that I'm beautiful?

A.   5 February 2013: This is both a question of whether it is appropriate, and more importantly in my mind, whether it is good therapy. It is generally difficult to judge comments outside of the context of the therapy session, or to know if what he said was exactly as ... (read in full...)

A.   20 December 2012: There are 4 parts to this. There is you, your friend, the guy, and the baby. In terms of the baby... Obviously you need to decide if you are keeping the baby or not, and this is very much your decision. If you believe that the father has the r... (read in full...)

A.   28 November 2012: Both can be true. It can be true that this is just a phase that will pass with time. It can also be true though that using counselling as a tool through which to go through this phase can be a good idea. It is not to say that one has to see a ... (read in full...)

A.   13 November 2012: Probably all you really need to do is tell him. If you tell him you want to do those things with him but that you become incredibly nervous in the moment, I am guessing it will release a lot of the tension you have around doing it. You might still ... (read in full...)

A.   8 November 2012: Short answer is, unfortunately for you, you can't. Basically, if he has given things a go with you and decided he loves his wife and wants to stay with her, there isn't much you can do really. You can try to change his mind, but that's not very ... (read in full...)

A.   29 October 2012: Strange is the word we use when a person's personal choice somehow differs from the socially accepted norm. Your choice does differ from the norm but that's not a bad thing necessarily. The norm is for people to have sex in their late teens an... (read in full...)

A.   25 October 2012: It is not a question of needing to seek professional help, its more a case of professional help being one of many options that you could use to work through a problem. I think it would be a good idea. You have a problem that you haven't been able to ... (read in full...)

A.   8 October 2011: Your ex wants to have sex with you. He has already made convenient arrangements for you to stay over, it all sounds very reasonable and logical, but really, it is all just masking the fact that he wants to have sex with you. He probably wants to ... (read in full...)
