I have a long and complex situation. I was in a 2 year relationship with a man who I am still in love with but am so unsure of what to do. Our relationship was amazing at times and rocky at other times. Let me tell you a little about his past, maybe this will help to paint a better picture because I have a feeling the way our relationship was and how it ended has a lot to do with his upbringing. He was told that his birth mom abandoned him, and he lived with his alcoholic father...

Imagine a couple in a long term, committed relationship. Imagine one of the parties subscribes to a singles dating site - no public profile is involved, he or she, just likes to look at what's out there. The 'looker' argues it is just amusement. The other party says it is disrespectful and suggestive that perhaps the 'looker' is seeking greener pastures. What would your advice be?

My girlfriend has been talking to this guy a lot more than she talks to me and they talk about sexual things all the the time like giving blow jobs and etc. I found out about this and asked her to stop talking to him because I didn't like it and she said it was no problem but now things have gotten worse. I tried to give her time to stop but it's been 2 months and it doesn't look like there is going to be any change. He has told her numerous times that he likes her and she should...

I've been involved with my boyfriend for almost 6 years. In the beginning he was very persistent on having me in his life. After I gave in and we started dating I found out that he was a relationship with someone else at the same time, but he denied it. Since then I have lost all my trustMutual trust is a shared belief that you can depend on each other to achieve a common purpose. More comprehensively trust defined as "the willingness of a party (trustor) to be vulnerable to the...(...

I have been in a long-term committed relationship for 8 years. Since I was 15 and he 16. Needless to say neither of us had any meaningful past experience, and we’ve never been apart. We had lived together full time for 4 years when we decided it would be best for him to move across the country, to be with his friends and find work, as he was unemployed here. Everything was running smoothly, I went and saw him for 3 weeks at Christmas. He came home for 4 months (Feb-May) while he...

Dear Dr. Love, I went out with my ex-boyfriend for over 12 months. I moved into his apartment after 3 months. We fell deeply in love. He is very successful and older than me he is 35 and I'm in my late twenties. We talked about marriage and starting a family. I foolishly believed we would get married and that would be that. I would have fantasies about our beautiful family we would have, etc. Then out of the blue he didn't come home one night and his phone was off. I was...

Okay, I've been in long distance relationship for 5 months now and we had a break for a month and then got back together for 2 months. Now she says she loves me and I love her but she is sleeping with another guy. She says he is just a stand in being as I can't be there. When I say I'm coming down to see her she always avoids it saying she can't yet she sneaks off to everyone else even this guy she's sleeping with. He calls her babe and says he loves her too. So I...

I love the man I am dating. We have a long distance relationship. When I call him sometimes he doesn't want to talk to me. He said that's because he has nothing to say to me. I think he's dating someone else. What do you think?

Dear Dr. Love, Hi. I'm Mary. . .and I'm 15. I hope you please answer this question in your column. . .it's very important to me. About a year and 3 months ago - I met my first love over the internet. We were very, very close. He's 17 now. Our relationship seemed like it was unbreakable. . .until I mentioned that I had kissed someone else - before even meeting him. He thought this made me tainted.. .used. . .And he couldn't deal with that. Since January. . we've been trying to...

Tell me what happened. I've been there for her. I was there when she needed a shoulder to cry on, a hug, a kiss, and mostly of all a hand!!! She cheated on me about 7 times, but I was so determined to help her. That was my goal and dream for me and her. Slowly I was doing a good job, and she was doing what I was telling her, but at the end it just seemed that I wasn't enough for her or my heart or even my love. So I told myself that there was nothing left for me to do but to let her go. I told...
