    asking for two years and still haven't figured it out?

    Ok, so you "dated" a married man (but he said you were just friends even though you met on a dating site) and did the thing with him. By now you should realize this is going nowhere.

    It's the fault of the people who deflated the balls.

    That was his FIRST daughter. What about the others?

    Would he believe her if she denied it?

    I had a friend whose parents stayed together just for the sake of the kid (my friend). It did a real number on him and it took a lot of counseling for him to come to terms with it.

    He wants to date Elizabeth?

    He imposed that sentence on all of his family

    I agree that the wife gets some credit here. I feel sorry for her.

    Dear Scared and Confused: Newsflash! Your pride is not some independent force which allows you (or doesn't allow you) to do things. At your age you should have a bit more control over your own petty p more »

    I wondered about that as well. more »

    At this point, it doesn't really matter if she had the affair. You are not attracted to her and you are not happy in the marriage. Get out of the marriage without brining up ancient history which migh more »

    Well, the Globe appointed her, and that's enough to write a column more »

    Just explain to your family that this is nothing serious, it's only because the sex is great. more »

    I agree that the problem is your family's expectations, and it's your job to manage that. I am surprised that you've not introduced a good number of guys since I assume you have been dating for years. more »

    " I've been thinking of replying to a letter his wife sent me" - I would love to know what's in that letter.. more »

    You need to get out of it NOW. And as others have suggested, a lawyer and a therapist would be helpful. more »

    It is not all that uncommon for people to develop close ties with their therapist. Remember that you don't really know him. Yes, he was kind and respectful and caring. But he was also at work when he more »

    Well, you could try to get your name on the lease of his place, making it yours. But given your track record (and your anxiety), I think you should hold off on the move. Yes, even if the lease is up ! more »

    I don't think the problem is the age difference, but the way you both seem to look at the age difference. " giving her experience" and wanting her to overcome being in a broken home suggests that you more »

    He's moving and he would like to have someone available in the new location. That's not a good reason to get back together. Get him (back) out of your life. more »

    It's been six months. Relax. I suspect that you are moving too fast for her and I can see why she might want to back off a bit. Give it time. more »

    I am wondering if this is why you spend so much time with her. Checking on her? Not wanting her to have a life on her own?
    Hold off on any proposals, and work this out. more »
