A.   28 March 2017: You've had some fantastic advice here OP! Things can change for you if you are determined enough to make them change. Yes, it would be great to lose weight, but the most important thing is your attitude and frame of mind. If you can convince ... (read in full...)

Do men have different personalities with women they casually have sex with?

Q.   And by different, I mean, do they not care to be fun (with personality) outside the bedroom because he knows you're just a casual thing and not someone he wants to impress? For example, there's this guy who I began dating a while back and we went...

A.   26 March 2017: I do feel men don't really respect women who agree to have sex without any commitment to a proper relationship. Men crave the no-strings sex relationship, but when it becomes a reality they realise something fundamental is missing and it is all a ... (read in full...)

Why is he hiding these pictures from me?

A.   10 March 2017: He let himself down badly at the airport. He was as much to blame as you for the missed flight and you also had your leg injury which he didn't take into account, which was quite uncaring. My thoughts are dependent on whether this was a one-off or ... (read in full...)

A.   21 February 2017: It seems to me that you are interested in this guy, but not ready for a sexual relationship with him. You need to tell him this and see how he reacts. If he's genuinely interested he will stick around. If he just wants sex, he won't. Sleeping over ... (read in full...)

Q.   Seeing him for 3 months. He told me he loved me 3 separate times when drunk, to which I didn't respond. He came over to my place all the time, he said he wanted to meet my parents. Then the last time he told me he loved me, the next day he just sto...

A.   16 February 2017: This fella sounds like very bad news to me. The drink episode was incredibly immature. He sounds like the sort of guy who wants to do whatever he likes, but not allow a woman to have any freedom. Be careful!... (read in full...)

A.   15 February 2017: In my view it is disrespectful. He should have asked if it was something he could do, not just assume that you wouldn't mind. And he didn't even apologise after! I think you should tell him that you didn't like what he did. x... (read in full...)

A.   9 February 2017: I think you need to think carefully about your next step. If you confront her with your friend's 'theory' (which may or may not be true) and she admits it was her, what next? Are you going to accept her youthful indiscretion or not? Give yourself ... (read in full...)

A.   23 January 2017: I think you need to give it time. It was your first time having sex, and his first time ever! It was never going to be a great experience. The next time you have sex you should make sure it is a time and a place where you can take things nice and ... (read in full...)

At the start I lied to him, I've been mean to him and told him to leave. How can I get him to like me?

A.   20 January 2017: He is very young and I think he finds the age gap difficult to cope with. Whilst you are physically attracted to his young body, he is probably wanting to be with girls his own age, but doesn't know how to articulate this. I would give him some ... (read in full...)

Should I tell my wife I've been visiting massage parlours?

Q.   I'm a married man in my early 50s with a big secret. I've developed a habit of visiting massage parlours and receiving massages that end with sexual stimulation and orgasm. This started a few months ago and I love the excitement of headin...

A.   4 January 2017: Thank you for the replies. I know I deserve all the criticism received and I know that I should channel my efforts into my marriage rather than seeking illicit thrills. Yes, I would be shocked if my wife behaved in the same way. Our marriage is ... (read in full...)
