Is he too damaged for a real relationship???

Q.   I am confused about a friendship with a newly divorced man. Need to know how to interpret mixed signals and if we can/should make our friendship a real relationship. A couple of months ago I met a man through mutual friends. At his request ...

A.   29 October 2007: You've made a nice clean break. Keep it that way. If he had wanted you, he would have called you "in about a week" like you requested in your text message. IMHO, he definitely missed out on a true chance at a wonderful relationship. His loss. ... (read in full...)

A.   10 October 2007: Break up with your current guy (both of them). Don't tell the honest one about the infidelity. You're going to leave him anyway, no reason to add insult to injury. And don't prolong it. Rip the band-aid off and let him heal, so that he can find ... (read in full...)

A.   10 October 2007: You said: "Cutting the crap a little here: Do you see my point in any of this, or do I not have case at all? You seem awfully pro-ex at the moment. Is this all my fault?" I think that the two of you were badly matched. Asexy said it pretty w... (read in full...)

A.   9 October 2007: Okay, two strikes: sneaking off and the bad example his dad sets for him. You're going to have to work really hard. The first thing you do is you're not alone with him until you're either older, or your mom fully trusts you. This will be hard.... (read in full...)

A.   9 October 2007: Please don't take this the wrong way, 'cause I don't mean it badly. But why did you ask your parents? This was between you and your girlfriend. How would you have felt if she had broken your confidence about something that was just between the ... (read in full...)

A.   8 October 2007: She was going to share the room with three other people, right? One of them was him. And it's not like she asked you for permission to have sex. She told you about it beforehand. I think she was being straightforward. The truth is you don't tr... (read in full...)

A.   8 October 2007: If by "lady like" you mean "cottage cheese thighs" then by all means, stop exercising. Seriously, though, loose weight by eating right and exercising. Toned muscles are very sexy (you can stop short of the body-building shape). Ask any guy whet... (read in full...)

Q.   I still have feeling for my son father, they are not as strong as when we first broke up, but I do still have feelings and him keeping in constant contact does not help my "getting over him process". He is in a new relationship, I am in one also...

A.   8 October 2007: It is NOT your duty. You left him and are with someone else. If anything, your only "duties" are to your son and your new guy. Become a broken record: say the same thing over and over again. "No." Do not give him your reasons; they're ... (read in full...)

A.   7 October 2007: My really great cousin once told me "what you tolerate becomes your standard." If you haven't told him that this is NOT alright, then he's going to assume things are just peachy. I agree 100% with "baby duck"; talk to him. Let him know that you ... (read in full...)

A.   5 October 2007: I think that the fact that he's watching more port and being with you less is a bad sign. Although I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with watching porn (guys or girls) I do think it's a problem when the porn starts to replace ... (read in full...)

A.   5 October 2007: Two things: either he's put you into the friend mode, and thought he could share this and you'd be happy for him, or he wanted you to get the hint and stop pining for him. Either way, the best thing you can do right now is to move on. Good ... (read in full...)

A.   4 October 2007: The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. Hate/love require strong emotion. He's flipped his feelings into, for lack of a better term, the dark side. Once he no longer has feelings for you, he'll be indifferent and there won't be a ... (read in full...)

A.   4 October 2007: Don't wait for her. If you keep up the contact, in any form, you won't be able to get her out of your system. This means that you won't be able to find anyone else, either. So while she's out there finding yourself, you're stretching out the pain ... (read in full...)

A.   4 October 2007: Break off the engagement. At the very least, you should both be dating other people in addition to each other. She's obviously not ready to commit to you, and so an engagement is premature. The ground rules for dating other people should b... (read in full...)

A.   3 October 2007: This PERSON that you're going to create -- it's really selfish to bring him/her into the world just because you can't think of anything else to do. You're giving him/her a lot to live up to, since you're making it YOUR purpose. *Do you have a h... (read in full...)

A.   3 October 2007: You need to decide what's best for you and let him do what's best for him. Otherwise you've just replaced his mother as the woman who tells him what to do. What you will accept in a mate is one of the things you can decide for yourself. For exam... (read in full...)

A.   2 October 2007: What you do depends a lot on how much your husband is willing/able to do. You must provide a united front or you become the evil step-mother and he'll just ignore you. Does his dad at least agree that there is a problem? First, stop yelling ... (read in full...)
