My friends give me a hard time about the number of girls that I date and talk it up as if I were some sort of male slut. What do I say to them? -- Bed-Hopping Ben?
... they know too much about you.
My friend Stacie is my best mate in the world, and I think I've fallen in love with her. I want to explore the possibility of dating, but fear she'll simply take the mickey out of me at the thought. What can I do? -- Dirk in Devonshire
I have had the hugest crush on this friend of mine for several months now, and it's getting worse. Normally I'm the center of the party. But when he enters the room, I find it increasingly difficult to breathe, let alone string two words together. What do I do? -- Talkative Todd
I'm dating this great girl and have fallen head-over-heels for her. But she's also dating another guy. I care for her so much, but it eats me up inside thinking of her spending time with someone else. What should I do? -- Rob in Rhode Island
My boyfriend and I have limited vacation time and decided to spend this year's holidays with my family. His mother has been working overtime to guilt us into extending our vacation and visiting them. What should I do? -- Stressed Stacy
My boyfriend keeps showing up late for dates or asking to change plans at the last minute. It's driving me mad. What can I do? -- Laura in London
My girlfriend is studying out of the country right now and I won't see her until Christmas. Being without her ... it's awful. Is this normal? -- Blue Billy
My boyfriend and I moved in together a few months ago and things just aren't the way they were before. There is no conversation, no affection (although I try my hardest) and he just seems so uninterested. I need some advice on how to get back on track because we are losing each other. -- Sally in San Diego
A response to my last column got me thinking: one of our members pointed out the inexpensive beauty of endorphins for feeling better.
