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. I slept with my [...]

Dear Jackson: Jackson Answers Your Questions

This has been kind of a long week. Jackson's babysitter, who watches him three mornings a week, is on vacation, so I've been trying to squeeze in work in the early, early hours before Drew goes to work and in the spare minutes here and there while Jackson is occupied with play-doh or books or [...]

I am 20 years old. I am currently in a relationship with a man I love. As a matter of fact, I have never been part of such a loving and stimulating relationship before. I love it when he calls me his girl, when he cuddles me, when he touches me, when he kisses me [...]

My husband and I have been married for 55 years. My mother-in-law, who died when she was 99, never liked me. She had two children later in her marriage, so her daughter is 20 years younger than my husband. The daughter, my husband's sister, was brainwashed by her mother to believe that I was a [...]

At first he called frequently and we would spend lots of time together, but he recently moved his 17-year-old daughter in with him so that he could be a full-time parent and that has changed our relationship. He says she has [...]

His Take questions are answered by our panel of smart, opinionated, and funny dudes. The guys are pretty split on their advice to this letter writer: I met a guy online and we started texting back and forth. He told me he had been "talking" to other women, which was fine by me because we [...]

A year and eight months ago I met a girl who was in a long-distance relationship. When we met, it was instant attraction, and we hooked up on our first date and kept hooking up! At the time she said she wanted to keep it purely platonic, meaning physical, and that's how we continued for [...]

“My Boyfriend Should Pay All My Bills”

I have been in a long-distance relationship for over a year. Recently, I quit my job and moved out-of-state to join my boyfriend. We chose his city because logistically it made sense. I was very unhappy at my job and he has been at his job for many years and is happy there. Moreover, I [...]

I'm a 39-year-old male who's been in a relationship with a 35-year-old woman for about a year and nine months. Up until the end of February, we had been talking about moving in together in May. I had said yes. I was into it . . . but, as the date when we'd have to [...]

I have been married two years to the most amazing man, and we have a 15-month-old son together. Last night I was using his phone and I noticed some conversations opened. When I clicked on them, I noticed he was sexting girls things like: "Send me something good" and "My pants are getting tight." There [...]
