Advice Goddess

Miffed Connection Two years ago, “Beth,” this attractive woman I see around, gave me her number and mentioned three times that she hadn’t been asked out in a long time. I called to ask her out and…silence. She then said, “I can’t…as I think I may have something else to do.” Well, that was that, […]

Barenaked Laddies According to you, most women aren’t interested in seeing pictures of naked men. To quote you, most would “run past a naked man to get to shoes.” So, how do you explain all the women who go to clubs to see male strippers? Looks like somebody has to admit she’s wrong! —Gotcha! Men […]

Advice Goddess: 3/15/11

“Can You Here Me Now?” I have an online dating issue. When a man and I are going to have our first phone chat, I set up a specific day and time so we don’t have to play phone tag. This allows me to schedule around it and be prepared and at my computer viewing […]

Managed Frisk A recent column of yours really ticked me off. You stated, “While men can have sex without an emotional connection, women generally need to feel emotionally close to their partner first.” You could not be more WRONG. I’m a very good-looking and fit man, and I would never have sex with someone I […]

With This Ring I Thee Dump One year ago, I was engaged to a wonderful man I’d been with for four years. I loved him deeply, he was everything I thought I wanted, and his family was my family. Two months before our wedding, a dear male friend of mine confessed his love for me. […]

Ingrate Expectations I fear my husband has some disability in regard to apologizing. Monday was his birthday. I had a terrible cold, but put myself on enough meds to cook him a wonderful meal and dessert. I felt too sick for sex, so I offered up a, um, very personal massage, but he refused. Later, […]

The Advice Goddess By Amy Alkon FIRST QUESTION – Queasy Credit My girlfriend and I are planning to get married this year. Her finances are in perfect order (she’s frugal, with no debts, while I owe $8K on credit cards), so we agreed that she’d manage our money after marriage. But recently, something happened that […]

The Advice Goddess Amy Alkon FIRST QUESTION — You Make Loving Fund My wife and I have been married four months after dating a year. She’s 40; I’m 34. Before we married, we agreed (because of our values) that the man pays the daily living expenses (rent/mortgage, bills, taxes, groceries). She said I should never […]

The Advice Goddess By Amy Alkon ONE QUESTION  – Triumph Of The Willy When you gave advice to the woman complaining about her husband surfing the Internet for porn and swimsuit photos of Serena Williams, you seemed to have missed a word in her question. That word is “husband.” I doubt people get married with it […]

The Advice Goddess By Amy Alkon Home Is Where The Fart Is My wife of eight years is a really good person but always needs reassurance that she’s attractive. I’m finding that difficult because, on a typical night, she takes a dump in our master bathroom with the door open, saunters over to our bed […]

Settle Sore I’m a 23-year-old law student with a boyfriend who attends grad school 16 hours away. We’re both swamped at school, so we visit once a month. I’ve only been with one other guy, but I hate the dating scene. Still, maybe I need to date around to make sure he’s the right person. […]

Giving Her Paws I’ve been dating a great guy for three years. I occasionally get invited to work functions, and I’d like to take him, but I can’t trust him to act appropriately (not grope me in front of my co-workers, make inappropriate small talk, etc.). The thought of bringing him makes me so anxious […]

When Plush Comes To Shove I fear I’ve already turned off the new guy I’m dating because of a ritual I can’t seem to give up. I sleep with a stuffed bunny. I’m in my mid-30s, but I’ve had it since childhood, and I just find sleeping with it comforting. For the first month of […]
