A year after my break up I still haven't been on a date and no one has shown any real interest in me!

Q.   I'm 22 and the only relationship I have ever been In lasted 3 years before he came out gay. It was a very complicated break up with a lot of mixed feelings and we would still spend time together and end up sleeping together for around a year ...

A.   21 October 2017: You should free yourself of your ex and put some distance between you so that you can put a real end to your relationship. You have never really split up. Your heart is still with him. Nobody wants to play second fiddle to someone's ex. Tell ... (read in full...)

Q.   Hi, me and my boyfriend have been going out for 6 months and a few days ago I found out I was pregnant. We both currently live 100 miles apart and only get to see each other once a week. We decided an abortion was the best option for us as it wou...

A.   21 October 2017: I assume he is of a similar age to you? He is dreadfully selfish and immature and self-centred. He was spelled out to you where you stand. Please BELIEVE him. Do you have anyone else who can go to the appointments with you? A close friend p... (read in full...)

The guy I'm seeing is always getting mad at me?

Q.   The guy I'm seeing is always getting mad at me? We have an odd relationship, we say we love each other all the time. He says he's not ready to date (we've been in a like-dating stage for 3 years). I have fallen in love with him. But I feel like I'm ...

A.   21 October 2017: Firstly, THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT. Secondly, THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT. And lastly, THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT. The only thing you have done wrong is to allow this guy to treat you like a doormat, a plan B. He is using you while offering you ver... (read in full...)

Can you clarify his behavior?

Q.   I recently started seeing a new physician. I don't know his relationship status but I know that he doesn't wear a wedding ring. He asks me personal questions like if I am dating anybody, how my sex life is, and what I like to do on my days off. He ...

A.   21 October 2017: I am not sure I would be comfortable with this sort of questioning, unless it was directly related to a problem I was seeing him about. Unless, of course, you are actually HOPING this will turn into more?... (read in full...)

A.   21 October 2017: You are young. At your age it is unusual for a relationship to last. A year is quite a long time for one at this stage of your life when you are still finding out what you want in a partner. Your relationship sounds like it has run its course. ... (read in full...)

Given his past, do you think that this man would be a good parent to my daughter?

Q.   I recently left an abusive marriage, and have been seeing a man from work for almost a year. He moved in with my kids and I over the summer. He has always been very sweet and caring to all of us, but the relationship isn't perfect, though I love ...

A.   21 October 2017: Difficult one. So many factors involved. Firstly, few relationships are "perfect". Most people come with some sort of a past, especially with the passing of time. Many people choose to sow their "wild oats" in their youth and, once they reach ma... (read in full...)

She takes more than she gives and I know part of the problem is her low self-esteem!

Q.   Hi, when I told my girlfriend that I love her she replied, for the first time, that she does as well, although she doesn't know if it's really love. She justified this with saying that she discussed the matter with her mom and when her mother asked ...

A.   20 October 2017: I would suggest going for quality time together, rather than the quantity you are missing out on at the moment. Plan special things to do when your girlfriend has time to spend with you, then tell her how much you enjoyed whatever it was you did and ... (read in full...)

Q.   My new boyfriend of almost 5 month has been suffering from ptsd i knew this when we first got together , he decided to be open tonight and told me a shocking secret he had kept from me , he admitted he sometimes smokes weed to help him relax and ...

A.   20 October 2017: I totally understand your stand against drugs but you may want to do a bit of your own research into the benefits of cannabis before judging your boyfriend. He is not asking YOU to use it but he finds it beneficial for HIM. After decades of denial, ... (read in full...)

Q.   I have been texting this guy for 2 months everyday and sometimes we talk on the phone. We live in two different states I keep telling him I want to move to a different state and he wants me to move to his state because he says "I'll already know one ...

A.   20 October 2017: Well, I certainly don't think you should be basing any life-changing decisions on him! Sweetheart, you haven't even MET him. You could hate spending time with him. Even if you get on, there is no guarantee the relationship will last. If you real... (read in full...)

Q.   I catch the busy train to work in Tokyo everyday and there is this cute younger lady who gets on along the way. I am usually standing near the door anyway but somehow she seems to find her way in front of me so we are hugged and crushed together. We ...

A.   18 October 2017: It does seem more than coincidence that she manages to find her way to standing next to you every time and the physical contact is definitely unusual. Why do you not speak to her? Something along the lines of a smile and "good morning" or "here we ... (read in full...)

A.   16 October 2017: Posting the same question twice in two days? Do you not think this is another sign of your obsession? This is not love. You do not KNOW this guy. You are obsessed with a FANTASY you have built up around this "perfect" man. If you actually... (read in full...)

A.   15 October 2017: Well, nice as it seems for him to apologize for his behaviour, I suspect he is only "apologizing" as a foot through the door to seeing you. It would have meant a lot more if he had apologized and left it at that. He is only apologizing because the ... (read in full...)

My 'best friend' isn't much of a friend at all

A.   15 October 2017: I can understand you are hurt BUT you have ALLOWED all this to happen. People only treat us as badly as we ALLOW them to treat us. Had you stood up to her and called her out on her behaviour, she would either have treated you with a bit more respect ... (read in full...)

A.   15 October 2017: Seriously, your "proof" this man is for you is based on some vague airy-fairy thing a medium said to you? Something which was so general, it could apply to anyone or anything? And your infallible gut instinct? Firstly, you cannot be "in love" wi... (read in full...)
