Hey everyone!

What qualifies me to help people?...Well first of all I care, something which I think is very important. And I take the time to carfully think about any answers I give to questions.

I am currently in a relationship after many years of singledom and so I think I can look at answers from both persepectives. And I have done the whole 'I love him but he doesn't notice me' thing.

I am currently a student and I think moving to the other end of the country and into the 'real world' is really changing my view of things. I think I have now reached a level of maturity to be objective and helpful when answering questions; something that I hope will only improve as time goes on!

What is spooning??

Q.   What is spooning, and why do people seem to make such a big deal out of it?...

A.   19 May 2008: It doesn't have to be a sexual position. It can just be a type of cuddle where one parter faces away from the other one and they cuddle into each other. It is a really nice way to cuddle.... (read in full...)

What would you do??? Feeling nauseous ever since I read his ex's f'book messages..

Q.   i looked at my boyfriends ex-girlfriends facebook profile last night and was very surprised to see that he had commented on her wall (a space where you leave messages)... he must delete the posts she makes on his wall so i cannot read them or ...

A.   14 April 2008: If he wrote them on her wall then hundreds of people could have seen them. They weren't exactly private messages. So he was always going to be found out. Anyone could have told you. So confront him. I wouldn't trust him at all... xxx... (read in full...)

Q.   Hey Guys (: . Im 15 turning 16 =] Recently I broke up with my boyfriend of 6 months. Our relasionship was nothing serious but I ended it cause it's our GCSE year at school and felt like I needed to concertrate on my studies. Wich i was to...

A.   12 April 2008: Don't respond to his advances! Obviously if I guy kisses you it is understandable that you might kiss him back...but you know fully well this is going to happen: its not as if it is the first time he has kissed you now. If you know when he is go... (read in full...)

Q.   i have been using butt plugs for fun during sex and on my own for over four years now. Recently I have started using larger and larger ones as I haven't been satisfyed with the regular ones I used to use. I get a buzz from using bigger and bigger ...

A.   5 April 2008: I guess you just have to get rid of them if you want to stop doing it. This won't stop the urge but it might encourage you to look for new things. Or put them out of reach so it is more effort to get to them. If I were you I would look at different ... (read in full...)

A.   5 April 2008: You just have to trust him. Buying gifts is not the only way to show you appreciate him. And if you feel this way when introducing older people to him it seems like you are ashamed of him for some reason. I'm not sure why else you would worry. xxx... (read in full...)

A.   20 March 2008: Talk to her now about it. One of my friends thought she would stay with her boyfriend through uni and he dumped her the day before she went. Needless to say this ruined freshers for her. He - in his defense - had assumed that they wouldn't... (read in full...)

A.   15 March 2008: In my opinion it is only two weeks and then you will know what is going on. If you love her you will let her have this time and then get sorted when she comes home. But if she comes home and puts it off again I would be more worried. Then you can ... (read in full...)

A.   15 March 2008: I'm a little worried about your reasons for wanting this child. Was the baby you aborted from the same guy? If so then don't rush into having another one because of guilt. It takes a while for the female body to settle down after being pregnant and ... (read in full...)

A.   15 March 2008: I would talk to a trusted family member about it if you're sure its happening. But first think if there is anybody that could be the father apart from your cousin. Maybe they are just friends. x... (read in full...)

A.   15 March 2008: You live in the UK so you can go to your local housing authority and tell them you are pregnant and they will find you somewhere to live if you are homeless. If being with this guy is wrong then you don't want to bring a child into it. Mummy being ... (read in full...)

A.   15 March 2008: It sounds like he got cold feet about the whole thing. It is no consolation now but at least this happened before marriage and kids. Now you need to not focus on what went wrong but on moving on with your life and (in time) maybe finding someone ... (read in full...)

Is it selfish to expect this from a close friend?

Q.   Here's the scenario: Before my friend Vicky's birthday, she went clubbing with my ex and one of my ex's friends. My ex and I had a really bad break up and she knew that he hurt me pretty bad by cheating on me. Anyways, she invited him thinking that ...

A.   14 March 2008: If he's her friend too then she should be able to invite him. At least she told you in advance that he was going to be there. I understand that you don't want to see him and that this is the root of your problem but you have moved on from him so ... (read in full...)

Can we cure my brother of his addiction to pastel-jacketed family saga novels?

Q.   I'm embarrassed to say that my 39 year old brother has started to love reading family saga series - I find this pretty funny. I don't think I'd associate that type of fiction a male tends to read in his spare time. Ever since my family visited my ...

A.   13 March 2008: Let him read what he wants. How does it affect you in the slightest. This is not something that needs to be cured and it is a shame you feel this way. x... (read in full...)

A.   11 March 2008: You need to be honest with him. If this is going anywhere then he will need to know your true age (how else would he celebrate your birthday with you!?) If he has a problem then it is his loss. If not then you may just have to hold back from get... (read in full...)

A.   10 March 2008: Well if you're 16/17 you probably have commitments that mean you can't go with him now. But if you think it is worth it then make plans to go with him when you are older. If you survive the time apart then it shows a lot about the strength of your ... (read in full...)

A.   9 March 2008: If you want to show her that you love her then wait until she's ready. The first time you went out with her you said you were a jerk and then the next guy she was going out with was only playing her. No wonder she is hesitant about doing anything. ... (read in full...)

A.   8 March 2008: Try it face to face. Or just say 'hi, I miss talking to you, how are you?' on msn. Ask him if he wants to meet up just the two of you (this would be best out of school). If you make plans to meet up then you will have a fixed point when the two of ... (read in full...)

A.   28 February 2008: To me it seems like he wants to do something at this party. Sex maybe...maybe not but there you go. Does he have a girlfriend? Or do you have a boyfriend? Or does he want to keep it a secret for another reason. Tread carefully with him until you ... (read in full...)

A.   21 February 2008: Stop paying his rent and get him out of the apartment. He is a liar and is now cheating on the two of you by having secret relationships behind both you backs. What does he expect? That you will believe his divorce takes forever to come through? ... (read in full...)

A.   18 February 2008: If you had sex - even if he didn't come - you can get pregnant. Precum contains sperm and so you could have got pregnant from that. Go and see your doctor as soon as you can to get tested. And while you're there - and if you are not pregnant - get ... (read in full...)

A.   13 February 2008: I wouldn't do it if I were you. Yes you fancy him but you must realise that this is going nowhere. The fact you know it might disturb him suggests you probably do. However, if you do give it to him it might suggest to him that you want more than a... (read in full...)
