Dr. Date, One of my best friends started dating this girl who is still in high school. I’ve met the girl multiple times, and I figured since she is dating one of my best friends, I would friend her on Facebook. I friended her on Facebook and got the following response:
Dr. Date, Why do most guys find it hard to maintain friendships when they start dating? All of my friends who get in committed relationships fall out of the tight friend circle quickly. We don’t spend as much time together, and our hangouts are constantly interrupted with texts from the girls. It sucks. —Missing the Bros
Dr. Date, I have a massive crush on this guy who is tall, dark and handsome. He has great music taste, he’s extremely goofy and we always have a good time when we’re together. The only problem is … He’s my roommate. Help, Dr. Date! I don’t know how to make the first move. He’s never bringing girls home, and since we moved in with each other three weeks ago, he hasn’t been talking about other girls.
Dr. Date, My buddy is in this really lame relationship — his girlfriend is so controlling! They’ve been dating for about six months now, but she’s increasingly gotten worse. She controls his “curfew,” doesn’t let him eat what he wants and gets upset when he hangs out with me and our friends. And if he doesn’t text her constantly, she goes bat-shit crazy.
Dr. Date, So there is this girl in my political science class, and I’ve never talked to her, but I’m nearing a high school-esque obsession, and it feels kind of right. She always looks great and answers questions intelligently with a strong amount of cynicism, but she still seems happy and confident enough. We’ve definitely given each other looks, but we’ve never worked together. And we both always split right after class.
