This guy keeps asking me out, and I always make up excuses to avoid going on a date with him. We&rsquo;ve hung out in group settings before, and I&rsquo;m strictly just not into him. He&rsquo;s a nice guy &mdash; just not my type.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/14/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Sun, 14 Sep 2014 21:55:01 +0000 carmitz@mndaily.com 87877 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/10/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I think one of my really good friends is starting to have a crush on me.

Then, the bathroom door suddenly opened &mdash; my pants were still down &mdash; and a chick I have been eyeing for a while walked in.</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">She sarcastically commented on my junk and then told me to hurry up. We exchanged a few more drunken words and then, before I could realize what was going on, we were making out.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/09/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Wed, 10 Sep 2014 03:27:18 +0000 carmitz@mndaily.com 87807 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/08/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">Dr. Date,</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">My girlfriend is becoming a female bodybuilder, but her newly built physique is a huge turnoff for me. I feel like I&rsquo;m with a bro, ya know? I want to tell her, but I feel like an asshole because I also lift at the gym. How do I express how I feel without sounding like a sexist douchebag?</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">&mdash;Too Toned</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">Macho Macho (Wo)man,</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/08/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Tue, 09 Sep 2014 02:49:52 +0000 adohnalek@mndaily.com 87765 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/07/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">Dr. Date,</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I think one of my really good friends is starting to have a crush on me.

We&rsquo;ve talked about it again and again, and she seems to think it would be a fun way to spice things up. She doesn&rsquo;t see anything wrong with it.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/03/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 01:00:48 +0000 carmitz@mndaily.com 87632 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/02/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I have been dating this guy for a while, and we get along like Brad and Angelina. Because things have been going so well, there has been an increasing amount of sexual tension. Don&rsquo;t get me wrong; we&rsquo;ve had our fair share of topless make-out sessions, BJs and handies, but the kind of cravings I have been having lately cannot be satisfied by these sexual acts alone. Basically, I want to try anal sex.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/02/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Wed, 03 Sep 2014 01:51:26 +0000 carmitz@mndaily.com 87603 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/01/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I dated a guy in high school who was a year older than me, and he moved away for college. We had somewhat kept in contact since he had been away. This last spring he came back to Minnesota, and we spontaneously got back&nbsp;together.</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I got cold feet not even a month in and broke things off. Since then, he has blocked me from Facebook and has changed his number.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/09/01/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Tue, 02 Sep 2014 04:14:38 +0000 carmitz@mndaily.com 87572 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/08/05/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">My fiancé just called it quits, and I don&rsquo;t know what to do with myself. We had been dating for seven years, and one random day he said he &ldquo;had a pit in his stomach&rdquo; about our relationship and our love was too &ldquo;platonic.&rdquo;</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I thought things were going fine.

I&rsquo;m 6 feet 7 inches tall and almost 300 pounds. My friends call me &ldquo;the Human Growth Hormone.&rdquo; I like working out and I&rsquo;m proud of my physique, but it&rsquo;s sometimes hard to find a girl who doesn&rsquo;t get scared by it. Even when I hit on girls around the gym, who are also tall and muscular, I get denied. What am I doing wrong?</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2014/07/29/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Wed, 30 Jul 2014 04:13:37 +0000 edreher@mndaily.com 87449 at http://www.mndaily.com
