My husband and I went to what we thought was going to be an intimate gathering of friends. When we got there, we discovered fifty- some people all without masks and not distancing.  We know most of them but still… no masks and no distancing. We stayed less than 15 minutes and bolted, and now the hosts are pissed at us for not staying and being part of the fun.  

If you stayed and partied everything could have been fine… or...

My friend decided to date a couple, and after a few months of seeing each other it appears to have developed into a relationship. He’s even talking about moving in with them as this is what all three want. How can I talk him out of this?

Let’s see… your friend is happy and you want to talk him out of pursuing it? Yeah… don’t do that. Just because his happiness doesn’t look the same as yours doesn’t mean his happiness is wr...

My Ex’s family and I are still close and because of that I get invited to various family functions. My Ex and I are on OK terms, but he has a new boyfriend. He’s asked me not to come to family events anymore because it’s awkward for the new guy. What should I do- I really don’t want to miss out.

It’s fine to be friends with your Ex’s family but perhaps you should re-think your level of involvement. I’m not suggesting you cut th...

My fiancee and I have been together for two years and overall it’s been an amazing relationship.  Lately he seems to pick on everything that I do- from my choice to go to the gym to buying a new shirt.  Nothing I do is right and he’s not holding back in sharing his opinion.  How do I get my old, non-picky boyfriend back?

Sounds like a conversation is in order, and you should calmly commence it when he’s in the act of...

My online dating life has plummeted since the beginning of Covid-19.  I’ve talked to a lot of guys but nobody wants to get together.  

Living through a global pandemic can be a pain in the ass, as we all know.  The silver lining is that all good things come to those who wait.  Good things also come to those who are smart.  A first date brings its own share of nerves and you really don’t want the first meetup to include one...

My boyfriend dumped me and at first I was pretty upset but it quickly changed to anger and annoyance.  Not because of the breakup (now I’m actually more than OK with it) but because he keeps contacting me asking me to get back together.  I don’t think it’s because he really wants me and misses our relationship- I think it’s because the other option didn’t pan out.

Making the decision to end a relationship isn’t one th...

I recently experienced a breakup and I know my Ex is twisting the story to make him look good and me look like the bad guy. How can I get the last word in and set these people straight?

The last word is conveyed to the world by living your best life and creating your happily ever after.  Why should you care what your Ex says to others?  There’s really no reason to care because you’ve moved on and chances are his audience knows...

I received an invitation to my 20th high school reunion which normally wouldn’t be a problem but for me it is.  Being gay in high school made me the target of a lot of bullying and in spite of having a circle of friends my high school experience wasn’t the best. I’ve never been to one and I admit I’m curious to attend but I don’t think I can handle a replay of the nasty.

When the 38-year-old you looks back at your 18-year-...

My boyfriend dumped me the week before Sheltering in Place orders were given.  Luckily we didn’t live together and deep down I know the relationship wasn’t my forever one.  Now I’m alone at my place wallowing in self pity that I’m single again.  How do I break the funk if I can’t get out to get over it?

You already found one silver lining to containment…. you and your Ex didn’t live together.  You found another in adm...

I just found out that my Ex has been dating my friend for the last six months.  During the time I’ve seen my friend and not a word has been said.  What should I do?

As difficult as it might be, I would do nothing except rejoice in the fact that two people who obviously deserve each other have found each other.  Silently wish them luck and move on from both.  You’re better served by not confronting the “friend” because any...
