Advice Goddess, 7/11/11

Coma Sutra I’ve been married for over 20 years, and though my wife and I have a very good relationship, she has a low sex drive and never initiates sex. She used to make snide remarks about my sex drive, but I pointed out my options (no sex, self-service, her or someone else). She knew […]

Advice Goddess, 7/5/11

Creature From The Slack Lagoon I’ve been engaged to a man for seven years, but we haven’t been able to afford to get married. I attend college part-time while raising my daughter and working. He treats me well and works hard, but he’s unmotivated and undereducated. He doesn’t even have a high school diploma and […]

The Shopping Cart Before The Horse I had to talk a guy friend out of showing up on a first date with a rose and a book the woman had casually mentioned she liked. He’s a genuinely nice guy and professionally quite successful, but he repeatedly turns women off by coming on too strong too soon with […]

The Princess And The Pee My fiance’s been treating me badly for a while. When I’m at his place, I spend most of my time watching him play video games and drink beer until he’s ready for sex or he passes out. He calls me “insecure” and says “get over it” if I bring up […]

Meek And Potatoes My co-worker was really hung up on a guy. She was convinced he liked her, and she did all the flirty things you advise, but he never made a move. This went on for months since she, like you, thought women should never, ever ask a man on a date. I finally […]

Sane-Sex Attraction I’m an African-American gay woman in my mid-20s. I initially had relationships with men, but I’m just not attracted to or compelled by them. Women make me feel alive, exhilarated, connected, and challenged, and sex is the bomb. So, I know I truly love women…but most lesbians, including my current girlfriend, are crazy. […]

When You Wish Upon A Ringo Starr I’m 25, a singer in a band, and extremely motivated to make a career out of my music. In fact, I’m moving to LA this week for that purpose. I’ve been casually dating – speedily dumping men who’ve gotten attached (not my fault, I make my intentions super-clear). […]

Under The Cover Of Nightclub I met an amazing guy – the kind I swore didn’t exist: thoughtful, caring, and incredibly secure. He seemed to love me. We were together exactly nine months when he called and suggested we go dancing. Ten minutes after I arrived at the club, he broke up with me. He […]

Extreme Meekover Women always insist they’re looking for a “nice guy,” but they waste no time running past one to get to a jerk/bad boy. It really seems they’re drawn to guys who treat them badly. My most egotistical friends score with women like crazy, and I’m a nice guy who’s alone. If my experience […]

So, His Wild Oats I offhandedly mentioned to a friend that I thought her married brother was really cute. She revealed that his divorce (from a 10-year marriage) would soon be final. (It will be at the end of this month.) She then played matchmaker. He and I have been dating for three months. Things […]
