We&rsquo;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.</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">He&rsquo;s getting fat, and I&rsquo;m not physically attracted to him anymore. This concern may sound shallow, but honestly, I don&rsquo;t know what to do. We used to have awesome, kinky sex, but now, I&rsquo;m simply not interested.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/25/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Thu, 26 Mar 2015 02:13:53 +0000 edreher@mndaily.com 90695 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/24/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I recently came out as a lesbian, and I&rsquo;ve had a hard time adjusting. Though I&rsquo;ve known for a while that I like women, things have been different for me since I&rsquo;ve told my family and friends. They&rsquo;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.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/24/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Wed, 25 Mar 2015 00:57:48 +0000 kmoon@mndaily.com 90646 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/23/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I have a really hard time getting dates, and I&rsquo;ve recently joined the online dating circuit. I need some advice on how to craft my profile to be successful. Right now I&rsquo;m using Tinder and OkCupid, and I haven&rsquo;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&rsquo;t. Only a handful of people have talked to me, and to be honest, most of them seem like creeps.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/23/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Tue, 24 Mar 2015 01:44:30 +0000 adohnalek@mndaily.com 90612 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/22/dr-date-0 <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">My girlfriend keeps kosher and always has.

We haven&rsquo;t talked since. She&rsquo;s getting married this fall, and I&rsquo;m the maid of honor.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/08/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Sun, 08 Mar 2015 23:49:44 +0000 edreher@mndaily.com 90397 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/04/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">This past weekend, I hooked up with a girl whom I had just met the night before. Throughout the evening, we talked about seeing each other again and whatnot in the coming weeks. She left shortly after we shared breakfast and a shower, but the thought of her has remained in my mind since &mdash; a rare occurrence for myself, being a somewhat jaded, early-20-somethings man.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/04/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Thu, 05 Mar 2015 02:08:48 +0000 kmoon@mndaily.com 90320 at http://www.mndaily.com Dr. Date http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/03/dr-date <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;"><strong>Dr. Date,</strong></p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">I accidentally ended up having sex with my friend&rsquo;s ex-boyfriend (oops). Now I&rsquo;m stuck in this place where I don&rsquo;t know if I should tell her or not. She&rsquo;s going to flip the frick out if I tell her, and it could potentially end our relationship.</p> <p style="margin-left:3.0pt;">But then again, I&rsquo;d hate for her to find out from a third-party source. I really don&rsquo;t want to lose her as a friend. Should I just forget about it, and hope she doesn&rsquo;t find out?</p> <p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/backtalk/dr-date/2015/03/03/dr-date" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dr Date Wed, 04 Mar 2015 01:49:20 +0000 kmoon@mndaily.com 90279 at http://www.mndaily.com
