After my boyfriend and I went to different colleges, he hooked up with other girls since he didn’t think we were “exclusive.” We’re very much back together and committed now, but I can’t seem to keep the fear away when we’re apart. Can I ever relax and enjoy my relationship again like I used to?
After my breakup from a serious relationship, I found a new guy during my “finding myself” phase. At first we said that we would take things slow, but things quickly turned intimate. He comforts me, holds my hand, kisses me on the forehead randomly, cuddling with me at night. That’s all great but when I said that we should take our relationship to the next step, he says that he just wants to take it slow because of his rough past. Is this a lost cause? Should I give up and run?
I want to pursue my dream of graduate school but my dream of a boyfriend doesn’t want to follow me when I move for school. Do we try to make it work or am I just kidding myself?
Despite the world being obsessed with “social justice”, you won’t read about women’s pervasive patterns of racial, height, or other looks discrimination against men or how difficult they are to counteract.

Hello! I’m 40 and full of energy. I’m growing my own company and doing yoga and running with my dogs. I have been in love four times in my life and married one of the three men in those four (there was one woman). My husband bolted at the prospect of having children and I was devastated but I’ve moved on. Outside of those four, I’ve barely even had crushes. The problem is, I’m getting older and it feels like having a broken heart is really becoming a lifestyle for me. How do I find love in my 40s?
I keep going on dates with no success. I feel like giving up. Am I destined to become a future cat lady?
I talked and texted with a guy for 8 months. We lived far apart so I wasn’t suspicous at first when we couldn’t meet up. He promised that we could Skype soon, but that always seemed to fall through.

It seems that every time I think I have met someone great, they ghost “disappear without word” on me all of a sudden. What am I doing wrong?

I’ve fallen out of love with Mr. Perfect and I don’t know what to do. I could picture a future with him but for a while now all I can think about is how I’m unhappy. Because he hasn’t done anything wrong, I feel like I’m going to irrevocably break his heart into a million tiny pieces.
