Ask Erin: My Partner Won't Admit Our Relationship Isn't What It Used To Be

I’ve been in a lesbian relationship for two years. The first six months were amazing. After that, she began pulling away from me in small ways. At first, she gave me fewer compliments. Then, we started having sex less, going out together less, in general spending less time together.

I’d rather let it happen organically than feel forced by circumstance.

Ask Erin: Is It OK If My Out-Of-Town Date Stays With Me Before We Have Sex?

She asked if she could stay with me. The thing is, I don’t want to make her feel uncomfortable. I suggested that I could come visit her for the weekend, but she still wants to come here. Of course, I wouldn’t object to sharing a bed with her, but something keeps giving me pause.

Recently, I asked him ‘where he sees himself in five years.’ He answered back with some joke.

Ask Erin: Should I Leave My Boyfriend Who Has No Ambition?

My boyfriend and I have been together for four years. We have a pretty good relationship, rarely fight, and I love him. However, he has no ambition and it’s really starting to bother me.

She starts blowing up my dad’s FB feed up with nauseating posts about her “Daddy”: posting pics of herself saying she looks like him, posting that they talk all the time, etc.

Ask Erin: Help! My Half-Sister Is Stalking My Social Media

More than 50 years ago, my dad had a daughter and her mom’s new husband adopted her. My dad later had three kids with my mum and no one talked about the other daughter — I didn't know she existed until a few years ago, when my grandmother made some sort of off-hand remark and I started asking questions.

I’ve become kind of obsessed with this, and I know I shouldn’t.

Ask Erin: Help! I Can't Stop Stalking My Boyfriend On Social Media

I wanted my boyfriend to post pictures with me. I posted pics as well. This might sound childish, but there were always these girls trying to break us up. So, for me, that's how it worked — posting pictures regularly would let them know that we’re still together.

It’s not the age that bothers me. What bothers me is that he’s married and he’s the father of my little brother’s only real friend. Image: Thinkstock.

Ask Erin: Help! I'm Having An Affair With A Married Man

I’m in my early 20s and he’s in his 40s. He’s my 6-year-old brother’s best friend’s father. He’s old enough to be my dad too, actually. He’s got four kids — all with different moms (one who is my age).


Ask Erin: My Partner And I Found Out The Guy We’re Hooking Up With Is Engaged

We both want to make it an ongoing thing with this particular guy and he was also open. The problem is, when we were at the bar he showed us a picture on his phone, from a social media page. We looked him up later to add him, and he is engaged!

I’m starting to think he hates me and doesn’t want to be in this relationship.

Ask Erin: Help! I Don't Think My Boyfriend Wants To Be With Me

He keeps telling me not to worry, that he’s “not like the others.” I’m starting to think he hates me and he doesn’t want to be in this relationship. It’s only been a little over a month.
