MMNNEE is right. You can't fix him. But you can fix yourself (as to why you think an adult 30+ male needs your help). You may want to consider attending an Al-Anon meeting or 2 (or 200!!). At the v more »

Sadly, it's not about the sex; good or bad. Her fear of being alone outweighs everything; his drinking, OCD, laziness, cheating, etc., etc., etc... LW - You will never be happy with him. He will NE more »

CPP - it sounds like the problem is he is not sure he wants to be exclusive anymore (a form of "buyer's remorse"?). Sounds like he wants to explore other options, but doesn't have the ballz to just co more »

Cosmo - LW never said her new BF was cheating on his wife. It's the BF who needs to be cautious dating a former cheater. She could do it to him, especially when/if he starts slacking in the sack... more »

LW should read "Codependent No More." It's all about how to handle this kind of carp and keep it from happening again. That and Al-Anon.

LW - this isn't about a bad pattern (i.e., something that's consistently happening to you). It's about bad choices (something you're doing to yourself). Take Goldie's advice and get thee to a therapi more »

Karen, You are clearly speaking to the under 30 crowd. What about single women over 50?? While there are plenty of men who'd like to "hook up" with and older woman and vice versa, it's not so easy to more »

It's all about priorities...

Sometimes rejection is God's protection!

This happened to a friend of mine. She asked my advice. I suggested he either had a deformed ***k or might be gay. The latter was pretty obvious to an outsider. She insisted he was not deformed. Sh more »

Always write it, never send it...

"no one in their day got depression" - No, they just self-medicated with excessive alcohol.

Careful Dadz and Bzzn - you're ignoramous is showing!

Agree with princess. It's not naive to think the BF will change his mind. He's probably only 27, too. I know several young men who adamantly did not want kids in their 20's. Once they hit 30, they c more »

WOW!! Judge much??!? We LL folks only have a smidge of what happened here. Sounds like the "others" defending the cheaters are only being non-judgmental. You members of the LL cheater haters pitch more »

How about assuming an on-line Alias, like we all do here on LL? Don't use a pic on the on-line dating website. Just contact the guys you'd like to date and tell them you'll send a pic to their email more »

Very well written, Ty. Now I know it will be too depressing for to see, but I appreciate the well written review all the same!! Thank you!

"you need to realize that fresh out of college is not "settle down time" it is still very much "find yourself" time." Well said, GB. more »

LW - it's sweet that you want to help your BF find his passion and guide him. But these are things only he can do. He's an adult. You're his GF, not his mother. He doesn't HAVE to talk about work w more »

DLo says, "you will know when it is the right time to settle down." That's true. You can always get back together with him after you've sown some wild oats, like when you're 45 and he's, uh...68. Then more »

Z - The "inaccuracy" is that LW feels her hubby is using his work schedule and bigger salary as an excuse to not have to do anything else, including interact with her. Sounds like he virtually ignores more »

"What happened was that he stopped talking to me all together, picked up, and moved for work." Translated: HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU. Instead of contacting him, get the book and read it!! more »

Wow! You LL people need to lighten up. They're only in their 20's and neither is married. It's not cheating. Still, that's not to say she doesn't like the attention and that LW isn't into "forbidden f more »

Goldie - that is if they ever got that far. So far they haven't gotten past lunch. more »

DWL says "She obviously isn't ending her relationship for you" = SHE'S NOT THAT INTO YOU DWL says "This cycle has to end" = definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again expecting a more »
