My wife told me last month that she wanted a temporary separation at the end of April. She laid out several solid reasons for wanting to separate, and I'm not going to throw a huge fit over it like I probably would have not too long ago. I understand her reasons, but she keeps asking [...]

There’s Nothing Wrong with Your Sex Drive

This recent article in the New York Times, called "Nothing is Wrong with Your Sex Drive" is interesting and important, and especially in light of recent forum discussions regarding female sexuality like this one and this one and even this one, I thought it warranted a deeper discussion here. Basically: Researchers have begun to understand [...]

I have been serious with my boyfriend for a little over two years. In the last three to four months he has moved in with me. At first he stayed only two to three nights at a time, but now he has a closet and what I hope are most of his things here. He [...]

My fiancé and I have been together for a little over four years and living together for about two. He's a sweet guy who would give me the world if I asked, and I love him. And when he proposed in December 2014, I was ecstatic, but the very next day we had a party [...]

Shortcuts: “Should I Tell Her I Almost Cheated?”

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 recently got back [...]

I have a recurring dating dilemma. I meet a guy and he asks for my number, sometimes we go out and sometimes he never does ask me out. Almost always the man just stops talking to me after maybe two weeks; sometimes months go by and I'll receive a random text of desperation: "Hi, what [...]

“I’m Ashamed I Lost My Virginity to a Prostitute”

I am a 21-year-old guy and up until earlier this year I was still a virgin. I get a good amount of attention from women when I do get out, but, without going into too much detail, I do not date a lot because of my crazy busy work/life circumstances. I was a late-bloomer and [...]

Longtime reader here and your post on engagement rings is timely. The other day I tried to break up with my boyfriend of one year. However, during the breakup, he pulled out the engagement ring he bought and proposed. I ended up walking back on the break-up because I felt so guilty. But now, as [...]

Let’s Talk Engagements and Engagement Rings

Over in the forums there are a couple of discussions going on regarding engagements (and proposals) and engagement rings, and I thought it was worth bringing the topics over to the main page for deeper thought. First: engagements. It's the 21st century. What do you think about this idea of women waiting around for their [...]

I have been dating a guy for 11 months now. He has been very open and honest from the beginning that he has been watching/masturbating to porn since he was in middle school. We are now 30. In the beginning I thought it was great that he was honest and I thought he was an [...]

I'm 23, recently married, and 21 weeks pregnant with my first child. Throughout my whole relationship with my husband, my in-laws' house has always been always disgusting. My mother-in-law is a hoarder and addicted to shopping. In addition, there are three dogs and two cats in the house, and one dog goes to the bathroom [...]

The only daughter of my significant other (we've been together for four years, living together for one) is having a baby in July. We think this is a bad idea — she has a ton of debt, only a high school education, and a not-entirely-reliable baby daddy whom she lives with — but it is what [...]
