Past Sins?

Dear Short Answers: I didn’t get a Valentine Present for my girl and she is pissed off.  I think it is a stupid commercial holiday and I think she should apologize for being dumb.  What do you think? A Guy with Principles Dear Guy: We happen to agree with you.  But she’s your girl, and [...]

Catch 22

Dear Short Answers: Another year and  here I am with the same old “not going anyplace relationship.” We’ve had all the conversations and no resolutions but somehow here we are again — not very happy but not doing anything else either.  Help!!!

Dear Short Answers: ‘Tis the season I guess — thinking about old girlfriends and half-planning a dirty weekend with someone I split up with more than a decade ago.  What’s this about? Should I do it?

Traveling Light

Dear Short Answers: I’m falling deeply for a guy who I am sure is right for me.  He brings out the best in me in a way I never thought possible (ok, enough gush) and I’m meeting his family (gulp) in a few weeks.  But as we get more serious it brings up insecurities from [...]
