"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.

A.   12 November 2018: I’ve seen it a few times on this site now people being advised to sweep cheating under the carpet and I find it astounding. You are being eaten up by guilt now before the baby is born, will it go after the birth? When you get married? Absolutely ... (read in full...)

He wants to be friends only!

Q.   I have been seeing a guy on and off for around 10 months, we’ve never gotten past the casual first stage due to him not being ready and so there have been gaps where we haven’t seen each other and dated other people, however always seem to come ...

A.   12 November 2018: Why are you wasting your time on someone who can’t make his mind up? What are you getting out of this? How can you not be ready to date someone after ten months? What you’re doing is pointless. Block him and move on. ... (read in full...)

Are LDR's real relationships, even if you haven't met them yet?

Q.   Hello, I am currently in a long distance relationship with a man. He is from the US, and is 21 years old, and I am from the UK, and am 18 years old. We met online, and have been together for a couple of months now. We are still going strong...

A.   12 November 2018: Not really. It’s easy to speak online to someone, you can give off whatever persona you like, until you’ve met someone in person and spent time getting to know them physically then you have no idea what they’re about. Keep working at the p... (read in full...)

The girls I want to date end up dating other guys!

Q.   Hi everyone! This isn't such a serious situation, just looking for some advice and guidance. I met a girl a few weeks ago, we exchanged numbers and she went back to her city 2 hours away. We chatted every day, she flirted a lot and we had a g...

A.   12 November 2018: It happens, we can’t be a good match for everyone we meet. She wasn’t feeling it so phased out contact. Definitely DO NOT message her asking why. That will come off as creepy, just accept she wasn’t interested and move past it. I’d say if yo... (read in full...)

Should I be strong and not burden people with my problems?

Q.   I'm really upset but wondering if I have every right to be or if my boyfriend was spot on and I need to get a grip. I have two children with my ex, we were together 8 years but then he cheated with his now wife. They got married within months of...

A.   11 November 2018: Sounds like your ex has 3 children to deal with. I really wouldn’t want my children anywhere near a violent woman like that. I hope she’s bought them a new laptop also? Criminal damage in front of children, she sounds classy. As previously... (read in full...)

My girlfriend is perfect, but I want an open relationship.

Q.   Hi people. I met my current girlfriend a little over two years ago and I was not the social type back then. I never really went out a lot and hanging out with friends was pretty much 'indoor'. After I met her I became very outgoing. We went t...

A.   11 November 2018: She isn’t ‘the one’, if she was you wouldn’t have the urge to go out fucking other people. Please enlighten us how going around having meaningless sex will fill this ‘emptiness’. I’ve been there, done that. Slept with enough girls and then never ... (read in full...)

Q.   So I have been best friends with an American man for about 12.5 years now, we met online and started as penpals , we have emailed nearly every day for 12 years and always ring each other and there for each other if we were going through a tough ...

A.   11 November 2018: What other way could there be than just saying it to him? You don’t want to play games? Well that’s exactly what you are doing. He told you how he felt then you lied to his face. Why would you tell him you only see him as a friend if you don’t? ... (read in full...)

Q.   Hi all, I’m going to keep this short and sweet and any help and advice is greatly appreciated. I was in a long distance relationship that ended in 2011 because my partner got depressed due to me always leaving to go back home. I’m Scottish and he’...

A.   10 November 2018: Everyone goes though a pain at this point in their life where they feel like they’ve missed out on ‘the one’. If that was the case and you were meant to be, you would be. Nothing would have stopped the situation, there would have been an ending in ... (read in full...)

Should I apologize before the concert or just leave it alone?

Q.   When we were dating, I had given my ex a Louis Vuitton necklace. After we broke up, I knew he would just throw it away, so I asked for it back and he said he would mail it. A week later, it hadn’t come in the mail, so I texted him and asked if he ...

A.   10 November 2018: Leave him alone. You gave him the necklace as a gift, you technically have no right whatsoever to take that back no matter how annoying it is. Right now you are harassing this guy, if the roles were flipped all hell would break loose. Just ac... (read in full...)

Q.   7 months ago, my ex and I broke up, mutually. Our relationship was long-term. A few days after our breakup I accidentally read a conversation in his facebook account between him and a female friend. The conversation was very intimate, and almost ...

A.   9 November 2018: The whole point of a break is to be apart from each other, to have time to collect your thoughts, work on things and ultimately decide whether you want to get back together. Being on a break doesn’t involve having sex with each other and being in ... (read in full...)

Q.   Early this year my girlfriend did an internship in another city. I was too busy to visit and she didn't have much time either, so she only travelled back here a couple of times. I missed her and was looking forward to her getting back. Then she ...

A.   9 November 2018: You don’t trust her and for good reason, so why stay? She has betrayed the relationship in the most serious way, it doesn’t matter WHY she cheated, whether you didn’t have enough time for her or whatever is not important, the key point is here is ... (read in full...)

My ex girlfriend wants to be reimbursed for gifts she gave me.

Q.   I have recently broke up with my girlfriend after nine months together, a couple of weeks before we separated she bought me a present but now we're not together she's asking me to give her back the money she spent on that present, I don't think ...

A.   8 November 2018: You’re under no obligations to give it back although it may be in bad taste to keep the gift if it was very close time wise to the break up. I’m not too sure why you’d want to keep the gift from someone you’re not with anymore especially if she’s ... (read in full...)

He can't say I love you to me but we keep breaking up and getting back together. I don't know what to do

Q.   Okay, this is going to be long and I apologize in advance - I’ll try to summarize as much as possible. Two years ago (August 2016) I started my masters program in a big city. I was on dating apps for fun, mostly, not looking for anything serious...

A.   5 November 2018: What are you expecting to change? Seriously? How many times now have you let him back in and the same outcome has occurred? When do you ever need to force yourself to say you love someone else? If you can’t do it naturally then it’s not love. ... (read in full...)

A.   5 November 2018: You’ve blown it, you came across as too needy and pushy when you barely know each other. If a girl told me I was ignoring her when I hadn’t replied for a while I’d have the exact same reaction. Learn from this and don’t do this again in future. ... (read in full...)

A.   3 November 2018: I’m struggling to see how you’re not his bank here. He doesn’t work and you pay for everything. He’s a jobless bum that chats to other females in front of you and you’re accepting it, does it sound like he’s going to change anytime soon? Sounds l... (read in full...)

A.   31 October 2018: What valid points could he have? He is an absolute scumbag. How can you love a lying cheat? Honestly, I’m intrigued. What could he be giving you that an honest single man couldn’t? This guy is basically calling you a slut that can’t control ... (read in full...)

A.   31 October 2018: I have to agree with the other posters saying that the new guy sounds like a complete dick. Using manipulative tactics to try and get into your underwear. I really doubt he has strong feelings for you, just enough to want to get you into bed, I’d be ... (read in full...)
