Q.   How can i break up with my girlfriend? Im not sure if i even want to. We have been together for three years. We have been having problems recently. She told me she was not sure where we were going, that we were stuck in the same old patterns doing ...

A.   21 February 2017: She will be hurt no matter what, but if you're not happy you're not happy, what can you do besides break up? Don't prolong it acting like things are fine if they aren't. ... (read in full...)

I fear rejection. Could his actions be a sign that he only wants sex, and nothing more serious ?

Q.   I have been seeing a guy for some time now and it has been amazing and I utterly admire him but the thing is I don't know what we are. He is all sweet and kind and all touchy and shows affections when I'm with him even in public, he is very playful,...

A.   20 February 2017: The thing is with younger people these days that they want things to be much more casual. I think it's pretty rare for the male to bring up the 'what are we?' Talk, so unless you do I don't think you're ever going to find out. If you ask and he d... (read in full...)

Q.   My best friend and I are very different people and we get on really well, even though I no longer see her very often. We have been friends for years. A year ago I helped her get close to a guy she liked who I liked at the same time. Things did...

A.   19 February 2017: I agree thinking it's really odd behaviour. I always go with the philosophy of if you have to keep something secret then you probably shouldn't be doing it. Your BF and best friend meeting up and saying it was easier to not tell you seems really s... (read in full...)

Q.   How do I cope with a gambling addicted boyfriend? My partner of 2 years started gambling a lot about 2/3 months into the relationship. Ive tried my hardest to support and understand this problem ive offered to go to counciling with him or pointed ...

A.   19 February 2017: If he's not willing to work on his addiction then you've already lost. This isn't your problem and I understand that you want to help him but this isn't for you to do. Sounds like he doesn't even realise he has an addiction if he's continui... (read in full...)

Is he right to be annoyed? He was asleep, while I watched porn. He said that what I did was a form of cheating

Q.   Okay so My boyfriend always takes the mick out of me that I want sex too much. I do like it every day but I don't think that's a problem.. Anyway, that's not the issue. Last night he fell asleep when he knew I was horny, which isn't reall...

A.   17 February 2017: It's definitely not a form of cheating so I wouldn't listen to that accusation. If you openly declare that you'd like to have sex because you're horny and he declines he doesn't have a leg to stand on in regards to you taking care of it yourself... (read in full...)

A.   16 February 2017: I don't think it's a red flag, it's just something you don't enjoy. You weren't to know he was going to do it so I wouldn't beat yourself up over it, but if I were you I'd tell him that you didn't like it and don't want it to happen again.... (read in full...)

Q.   I have known this guy for about 7 years now; we were good friends at uni but then we lost touch when we graduated. We recently reconnected at a mutual friends wedding, and have been messaging on and off ever since. For the past couple of months, we ...

A.   15 February 2017: Well you want more than a friendship that's quite clear so would you rather live being friends forever and watch him get together with other girls or take the leap and ask him out and potentially be something more? Life is far too short not to t... (read in full...)

A.   14 February 2017: Tell him. It's really not worth getting in over your head developing even deeper feelings because you don't want to say anything and 'spoil' it. Believe me I've been there. Get it off your chest, maybe he feels the same. If not you have your an... (read in full...)

A.   13 February 2017: Yeah he's not interested. Who takes 5 months to ask someone on a date if they like them? Whenever I'm interested in a girl, depending on how the conversation flows I tend to put it out of in the open within the first 2 weeks that I see them in ... (read in full...)

A.   12 February 2017: Honeypie is right, you need to leave this guy alone, it sounds like it's getting borderline obsessive. He's clearly NOT interested, if us random strangers on the internet can see that, then why can't you when you're the one doing all this stuff? ... (read in full...)

A.   20 November 2016: Stop letting him guilt trip you. Whatever he does is his own problem, staying with him for the sake of things is worse that breaking up with him imo. He's a wreck and a very weak person. He needs to emotionally blackmail you to stay with him. You... (read in full...)

A.   15 November 2016: You need to leave this guy, threatening to cut himself is NOT normal behaviour. He's saying you're overweight and need to change for HIM to want to stay with YOU. If I had a girlfriend who dropped anything like that on me I'd be out the door and... (read in full...)
