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...

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 c...

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 a...

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 bette...

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 l...
