I Don't Want To Be The Victim Of Any Jezebel
Doctor Romance addresses romance and religion.

Dear Dr. Romance:

I am a gentle young graduate of about 30 years. Throughout my staying on the campus, I decided not to enter into any real relationship that could eventually lead to marriage (I mean I had nothing in common with girls). Now, I need a life partner, wish must be a graduate like me, pretty and most, God fearing. I don't want to be a victim of any Jezebel. Please help me out. I want to get married latest next year.

Dear Emmanuel:

From the tone of your letter, I am guessing you are involved in a church or religious group, and I recommend you seek there for a partner. I can understand why you had difficulty relating to the girls on campus. In fact, with your timeline and your concern about a Jezebel, you sound as if you're seeking an arranged marriage or something similar. "Where is Love?"and  "Relationships 101: Do Opposites Attract?" will help you understand more about relationships in general,  and "Stupid Cupid" will help you figure out what you want in your relationship.  However, I'm concerned that much of my advice will not coincide with your beliefs. I suggest you turn back to your religious roots to find the woman you're looking for. Seek out the elders in your religious community and ask for their advice.   Lovestyles: How to Celebrate Your Differences will teach you tools for communicating with your partner about what each of you wants in the relationship.

Asking for What you Want

By

In my counseling office, I see a lot of damage done because people don’t know how to ask for what they want, or don’t think it’s OK. Not asking for what you want means you’ll eventually resent somebody, and that leads to a lot of strife. So today, I thought I’d give some hints about how to ask for what you want. To really be ...
