How To Survive the Valentine's Day Blues

As Valentine's Day approaches, stores have displayed their cute Valentine's Day decorations, are promoting Valentine's Day gift ideas, and have moved those sweet Valentine's cards to a prominent spot on the card racks.

"I'm Jealous Of My Fiancé's Daughter!"

"Dear Wendy, My boyfriend of seven months, whom I am engaged to, has recently reunited with his four year-old daughter from a previous relationship whom, because of factors beyond his control, he has not seen in a year. Ever since the reunion, he has begun hanging his daughter’s pictures everywhere (pictures of just her and pictures of the two of them together).

How Much do You Miss Sex With Your Ex?

Never give up on someone you can't go a day without thinking about! I’m haunted by my Ex Katherine. Not by what went wrong with our relationship, but what went right with our relationship – our love life. After being laid naked, fetal-positioned, paralyzed, and wanting by our breakup, I want to attempt a sequel with my Ex. I am willing to work harder on our vertical life together for the sake of getting back to our spectacular horizontal life together. How much harder? I am willing to change.
