"Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't"

"Resentment is like drinking poison and expecting your enemy to die".

'If you're going through hell, keep going'

I do not sugarcoat my advice. I am straight to the point as I feel that is the best way to get through to someone who doesn't like to face the truth.

My partner's behaviour towards me has been very questionable ever since he lost his job. What's going on here?

Q.   This is a little uncomfortable to write, I'm not sure if I'm the problem or not. I've been in a relationship for 2 years and up until about 8 months ago it was really care free, relaxed, and just a joy really. Now, however, it's... I don't ...

A.   19 January 2019: Oh yeah he’s changed for sure and it’s not in a good way. It does sound like he may have slipped into some kind of depression since losing his job and he’s scared that you’ll walk away. Constantly having to reassure someone is tiring. Not a job that ... (read in full...)

A.   14 January 2019: Nope, definitely not. All you’ve had in 10 years in a single kiss. I’m not sure where you’re getting the idea that she likes you as more than a friend. It sounds like you give her all the benefits of a relationship without actually being in one. ... (read in full...)

A.   10 January 2019: He’s lying. What a huge coincidence that he was going to ask you that very day! Sounds like he is trying to reel you back in under his control as he knew you wanted something more serious whereas he enjoyed the no strings sex. He probably thought ... (read in full...)

A.   3 January 2019: ‘Set a date and I’ll show up’? And they say romance is dead. Is this honestly how you want to get married? This doesn’t sound like much of a relationship. Why would you marry someone you don’t trust?... (read in full...)

A.   30 December 2018: Tell them exactly how you feel. You’re an adult, you are perfectly capable of making your own choices and they need to respect that. Why would they expect you to go to an event you don’t want to attend with someone you have no interest in befriend... (read in full...)
