Dear Dr. Date,
I hung out with this very cute boy at a party last weekend, and we really hit it off. The sexual tension was so strong. But here’s the problem: He’s really close friends with my ex. (In fact, I first met this guy because my ex introduced us.)
Dr. Date,
I’ve been on my ‘A’ game lately when it comes to picking up girls. I’ve been giving out my number left and right, and I’ve got a date lined up almost every night. It’s been great.
Dr. Date,
Let me start this letter by saying I love my boyfriend. We’ve been dating for more than two years, and our relationship is perfect. So, considering that background, you should know how hard this is for me to write.
He’s getting fat, and I’m not physically attracted to him anymore. This concern may sound shallow, but honestly, I don’t know what to do. We used to have awesome, kinky sex, but now, I’m simply not interested.
Dr. Date,
I recently came out as a lesbian, and I’ve had a hard time adjusting. Though I’ve known for a while that I like women, things have been different for me since I’ve told my family and friends. They’ve been really understanding and have expressed gratitude for my openness, but there are times when they forget and say something very heteronormative. I used to brush those statements off, but since coming out, they irk me more and more.
Dr. Date,
I have a really hard time getting dates, and I’ve recently joined the online dating circuit. I need some advice on how to craft my profile to be successful. Right now I’m using Tinder and OkCupid, and I haven’t had a lot of luck. It seems like most other people have a really easy time starting conversations and getting noticed on the sites, but I don’t. Only a handful of people have talked to me, and to be honest, most of them seem like creeps.
Dr. Date,
My girlfriend keeps kosher and always has. I, on the other hand, did not even know what “keeping kosher” meant until I was older.
For now, we live separately, and it isn’t a problem. As we get more and more serious, and potentially talk about moving in together, I can’t help but think there will be some sort of issue.
