Again I thank you for your help. Well, my question isn't really a general topic, but here goes. I am only 17 years old, and have been involved in many relationships. In fact about 2 months ago I just ended one that had lasted for a year. I decided to concentrate on school this next year, and not worry about dating anyone specific. I was introduced to this guy through a friend who had a crush on him, and wanted me to meet him. Well, at first I didn't think anything of him. But the more I got to...

Hi Dr. Love! I have a problem I need advise on. I have been seeing a man who has been a widow since December of 96. His wife died of cancer. We have been seeing each other since March of this year. We met through a dating service and I told him that I felt we should just be friends until he had time to see what he really needed and wanted. We have really gotten close very fast, we have not said the I Love You words yet but I feel he wants to but is afraid he would be disrespecting his diceased...

Dr. Love, I recently caught my husband outrageously flirting with different women in a chat room. It really bothered me because he never flirts with me anymore. He says I have no reason to worry, that he is not doing anything wrong. However, I am still troubled by it. Do you feel I have reason to worry or should I just put it in the past and forget it?

I met a man at a bar. I know, that 's a bad place. But I was there ONLY to meet a girlfriend at the local SAFE neighborhood hangout. It was early in the evening around 8 pm but she never showed up. So I was sittting between two retirees and just laughing and having a good time. A guy from the end of the bar sent me over a drink. I had not even noticed him. He was clean (this is a boating and construction area and most people come in pretty dirty). I nodded my thanks and went on with the...

I am married with one child, almost 6. I am 32 and my husband is 42. He loves our daughter very much, but told me that he didn't want any more children after her. I have been on birth control ever since and even asked him to get a vasectomy if he really didn't want more children. He didn't 'get around to it' and now I am 2 1/2 months pregnant. I am thrilled about it but my world is falling apart around me. My husband wants nothing to do with the pregnancy and has said he isn't even sure he will...

Dear Dr. Love, First off I'll clarify that I am quite young, about eighteen, and that I fully understand that I have plenty of emotional growth left. Recently I've been dating a girl my age and things have been going pretty well. We've both agreed that we are not attached and given each other the freedom to date around. This is quite important because we do not have any real chance at a healthy long-term relationship, particually for religious reasons (she's very religious; I'm agnostic)....

I just found out that my boyfriend of 5 1/2 years has been repeatedly cheating on me the entire duration of our relationship. He was sexually abused as a child and says that because of this he has some sexual needs that I can't fulfill and that he doesn't want me to because they are so ' kinky'. Up until this point, we were planning to be married early next year. Now I don't know if I can trust him and forgive him for what he's done to me. With this exception, we have had a steady relationship...

Dear Dr. Love, I've been involved with a very kind, compassionate man for almost a year(I'm 24, he's 20), until just recently when over a remark he made(a very insignificant thing I realize now), we broke up for good. He is the most incredibly loving and considerate, patient and romantic man I've ever known. The problem for me is that he doesn't seem to have any goals set for his life- s. a. college, career, etc. Right now, we both work in the same retail store where we first met. I'm going to...
