My partner and I are in our 70’s and although we are great companions and support to each other, our sex life has become non-existent.  I’ve tried to initiate sex and I’m always given the cold shoulder.  He actually said that we’re too old for “that stuff”.  I’m really getting frustrated and for the first time in our relationship I’m thinking of stepping out.

Before you do anything drastic, I suggest another attempt a...

After spending a week with family over the holidays, my husband’s and my takeaway is that we’re being shamed for not having children yet.  We’ve been married for two years and the pressure to adopt or go the surrogacy route is crazy immense.  Someday we would like to consider it, but not today and today is filled with demands and questioning as to why.

Questioning a couple as to when they will expand their family is frankl...

I always feel a big twinge of depression after the holidays are over.  All the activity of December leads to a bleak January.  How do I snap out of it?

Having the desire to snap out of it is half the battle so you’re well on your way to success.  All you have to do is find pleasant diversions and activities to fill up your calendar.  Try taking a class- it’s fun to learn a new skill like cooking a new type of dish or disco...

My relationship ended in 2019 and I know I should be spending New Year’s Eve celebrating my newfound independence but I just don’t have it in me.  I’m over my Ex (at least I’m pretty sure I am) but I just don’t have the energy to party it up.  Is something wrong with me?

There’s nothing wrong except for the pressure you’re putting yourself through to whoop it up on one night of the year where everyone else is doing whoopin...

I was dumped before Thanksgiving and the sadness is following me right to Christmas.  It wasn’t a good relationship and I had been thinking of ending but he beat me to it.  I still can’t shake the sad.

It takes time to shake the sad because the only way to survive any breakup is to feel it, process it and learn from it.  You’re still in that mode, and the good news is that you’ll come out on the other side WAY better than...

My girlfriend was invited to spend the holidays with my family, and she  refuses to attend.  She feels it will be uncomfortable since she’s not a member of the family and doesn’t know everyone who will be there. She would rather stay home (she has no other place to spend Christmas).  How can I change her mind? 

All you can do is reassure her that your family is more than willing and more than happy to extend fami...

My reality is that I can’t get over my Ex.  I’ve tried everything and regardless of the distractions I create I just can’t kick loving him.  What should I do?  I’d like to move on but so far I’m failing.

I wouldn’t say you’re failing just because you haven’t achieved the goal of moving forward from your last relationship.  I would say that you’re still in the race- you just haven’t crossed the finish line.  You say th...

My friend has tolerated a lot of crap from her partner but she remains in the relationship.  I really want to see her get out and move on to a the great new life she deserves but she’s afraid.  What can I do to make her see that being single with possibilities is better than being partnered with a prick?

Your heart is in the right place but the fact is that you simply can’t.  She has to make the choice to change her situat...

I’ve been dating a guy for a year, and as much as I like him I question his reliability.  I’ve had a few situations where I really needed to lean on my partner and he was pretty dismissive because he had other things to do.

Counting on your partner to support you when life’s not great is a pretty important thing.  If he’s not supportive of your “stuff”, be it professionally or personally, it’s definitely something to think abou...

I’ve been single for a year and I haven’t started dating.  My friends are pressuring me to get back out there.  When is the right time to start dating after a breakup?

There’s no time frame, no rules and no rush.  When you feel you’re ready to begin dating again, then that’s the right time.  Many make the mistake of rushing into dating before they truly process their last relationship and it sounds like you’re not making t...
