The Hung and The Generous

I’ve been dating a guy for six months, and we’ve both expressed that we’re on the path to go the long haul. What concerns me is that he insists on picking up the tab for every meal and every event we attend. I can easily afford to pick up the bill, but he won’t hear of it. Obviously this man wants to wine and dine you because he sees value in you and your relationship, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Let him pick up the check, and find other ways to spoil him, such as plan a weekend away and pre-pay the flight and lodging. He’ll love it, and he’ll love the feeling that you see the same value. Is there such a thing as too big? My boyfriend takes impressive to a whole new level, but

Cheaters, Choices and Confrontation

Things haven’t been good in my relationship, and I’ve long suspected that my partner is cheating. My suspicions have been confirmed, and I’m now in the position of needing to confront him. What’s the best way to confront a cheater? Not an easy task, but obviously a necessary one. Here are three things to keep in mind before initiating the conversation: Be 100% sure of the facts and have the concrete proof before pointing the finger. Operating on a hunch may pay off at the racetrack, but not so much with relationships. Before you accuse your partner of cheating, you must have some indisputable facts to back up your claim. Without the facts, you run the risk of presenting yourself as a l

Late Starts, Early Finishes

I’ve been with the same man since I was 19, and we ended our relationship six months ago after 20 years together. I’m very late to the online dating thing. I’ve met some nice men, however they seem to lose interest because I won’t just have sex. I’ve only been with one man, and I’m not willing to just bed hop. Is there something wrong with me? There’s only one thing wrong here, and it’s that you haven’t met the right guy who shares the same mindset. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to get to know someone and take the long road to the bedroom. It’s called building a relationship. Some people are just not of that ilk- perhaps their mindset is not focused on a monogamous relationship a

Time for a Dating Profile Makeover!

I’ve had my online dating profile up for three months, and I’m not attracting a lot of attention. What did I do wrong? Having not read your profile, my guess is that you didn’t do anything wrong. My guess is that you need to do a few things better. Updating and refreshing your online dating profile will give a fresh prospective to readers. Potential dates will be impressed and even those who read your previous profile might just learn something new that intrigues them to reach out. Here are three things to do that will give your profile a good kick: Be sure the copy reflects the best of you. It’s important to write copy that gives an honest look at who you are and the personality you’re

Tempers and Tantrums

I’ve been dating this guy for a couple months. He checks most of the boxes, however he’s got a temper. It’s bad enough to make me think that in spite of all his good qualities this might be a deal breaker. If a partner in a new relationship exhibits a character trait serious enough to negate all the positives he brings to the relationship, you’ve got a big red flag that can’t be ignored. I would try speaking with him about it- most definitely not during an outburst. Hopefully an honest dialogue doesn’t trigger an eruption… if so, you might have the answer to which direction you should be taking. Best-case scenario is that he can see the problem and address it. If not, you have to do wh
