Relationship advice: At this point, I’d fly three hours to go on a date with someone interesting who hasn’t already virtually hit on one or all of my friends.
Relationship advice: She has a lot more space and, I’ll admit, a nicer kitchen, but we could still have fun at my place.
Relationship advice: I am so tired of her talking about weight, calories, etc. It’s getting to a point where I don’t even want to hang out, which is lame because she really is a great friend.
Relationship advice: The snow is “too dry” or “too sticky,” or the weather is “too warm” or “too cold.” Nothing’s ever good enough for Carl. I want to un-invite him this year. The other guys are afraid of upsetting him.
Relationship advice: I feel like I need to get us back on track financially, but my wife said COVID taught her to “embrace life” and she isn’t worried about using up our savings and even taking on debt.
Relationship advice: “Jeff” headed back to the Lower 48 and we’ve texted every day since the wedding festivities ended. I’ll admit it, I’m crushing hard. Should I drop this? Or keep pursuing what could be something amazing?
Relationship advice: My roommate knows how much I love this dog, and she’s threatening to take him with her. Now I’m dragging my feet about asking her to move out.
Relationship advice: I miss our quiet days at home, playing board games, binging TV shows and cooking together. But when I suggest we in more, he says it’s “more fun” to be out and with people.
Relationship advice: After my friend’s confession, I confronted my boyfriend and he not only admitted that he recognized my friend but that they also agreed not to tell me.
Relationship advice: My boyfriend says if I was really over my ex, I would have gotten the tat removed. But tattoos are expensive to remove, and time-consuming, and frankly it’s never mattered to me enough.
I’m hoping if I give this relationship 110%, he’ll come to see what a great thing we have, and by the time she returns, he’ll fully commit to me. Am I fooling myself?
Relationship advice: Part of me worries she’s just making excuses because deep down, she isn’t ready for a commitment.
Relationship advice: I wish my wife would support me in this. She used to work, and is qualified to return to the job market, but has not. I feel like my exhausting job is subsidizing her freedom.
Relationship advice: We hardly ever have experiences just the two of us. Whenever we plan anything — and I do mean anything — he is texting and calling buddies to join us. And people always, always join us.
Relationship advice: How can this happy couple get their parents to lay off the marriage talk without sparking a major confrontation?
Meanwhile, during COVID, my best girlfriend and her significant other got engaged. Every time she starts in on it again, it’s like my heart breaks all over again.
Relationship advice: Every year she says she’s coming to town to help with the grandkids, then spends her weekslong visit partying and leaves a mess behind.
Relationship advice: The main argument is her getting on me for my social media stuff, even posts from way before I even knew her, much less dated her.
Advice: My girlfriend still refuses to entertain, much less plan a trip Outside. I’m afraid we’re losing a special part of our connection and missing this window in life where we can easily take trips.
Relationship advice: I’m not threatened by this ex in terms of my relationship with my fiancé. What I can’t deal with is his family not making an effort to accept me, to bond with me, and to embrace our relationship.
