It’s time again for Shortcuts. For every question, I’ll give my advice in just a few sentences because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great that being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. How do I stop [...]

I met my ex-wife when I was 14 (I am now 40) and we became a couple in 1989. In 1999 our relationship stalled, and, as much as I tried to talk to her, she blew me off and neglected me. That in turn made me shut down and pull further into myself. In 2003 [...]

I am the mother of three adult daughters. The two oldest ones live out of state with their normal, secure husbands, and we get together when we can, as families do. Since they live far away, I don't have many opportunities to do things with them often, which feels really sad to me. My youngest [...]

She looks great, has a great sense of style, [...]

I was with my first serious boyfriend for just under a month. We broke up in 2011, but we have maintained a distanced cordial/friendly relationship over the years. While we were dating, there were times that he left his email logged in; I snooped and found that he was attempting to cheat on me with [...]

I called things off with my ex-husband shortly after our son turned 1 in 2011. He was a self-centered egotistical JERK and had numerous affairs, although by his definition the whole sexting and hiding the seven other women was my being ridiculous and crazy. I filed separation papers and moved out with our two children. [...]
