Oprah Relationship Advice
YourTango's take on Oprah's relationship advice.

Question # 4. He's married, but he says he's not happy and it's ending. I should stay away, right?
Oprah's Take: "Run as though you're fleeing a burning house. Which, in fact, you are."

YourTango's Take: Couldn't have said it better ourselves.

Question # 5. When, if ever, is it a good idea to try again, with a guy whose heart you've already broken?
Oprah's Take: "About as often as pigs fly. The case where it might work: when the failure was unrelated to your attraction or personalities but caused by outside circumstances."

YourTango's Take: The trust issue will always be there. If you cheated on him, lied to him, stole from him (okay, maybe that's a little far-fetched), or did anything to make him lose your trust, it's going to be very hard to gain it back.

Question # 6. I love my partner, but the sex is underwhelming. Stay the course or go?
Oprah's Take: "Neither. Instead you're going to do the hardest thing you've ever done. Think about the things that turn you on in the deepest ways, the things that make you feel most loved and cared for. When the two of you are unafraid to be naughty and vulnerable together, the experience can be amazing."

YourTango's Take: Try everything and try your hardest. Just because it's hard doesn't mean you should quit. Even though we sound like a self-help book, it's true. Harpo's method is a great one. There's also therapy and different sexual positions/acts that you can try to spice things up. Being honest with your partner is the key, though. If he doesn't know how you feel, things will never improve.
