I think a lot of people are convinced that sex doesn’t really change the dynamic of a relationship – casual or serious. Then they try to figure out why the person they slept with is acting so awkward all of a sudden. Sometimes sex can alter the way a person treats you. What do you do when someone starts acting weird after you hook up?

I recently met a couple who had been married for 17 years. They told me that when they first met, they really paid attention to compatibility. Although they had very different childhoods and backgrounds, they were similar with important things. How do you gauge your compatibility when you seem to be very different?

If you agree on how to raise kids, the kind of life you want to

One of our readers would like a little advice with their dating dilemma. “Rachel” has been dating a guy she met at church for a couple of weeks. Someone at church heard they were dating and it wasn’t long before she started getting unsolicited info on the guy. Turns out he has a bad dating reputation.

She was going to dismiss it at first. When they gave

Is it fair to judge their number?

8:50 am Jan. 27, 2015

Is there such a thing as knowing too much information about your partner? My friend asked her man about his number of sexual partners and his response shocked her. She hasn’t stopped thinking about it and keeps asking how he managed to get such high numbers.

It is clear that she thinks he has too many for her comfort level. Her image of him has shifted and she

Is chivalry still important?

8:47 am Jan. 26, 2015

A couple’s relationship was tested this weekend when a woman saw her man back down from a fight. She felt as if her boyfriend should have stood up to the drunk guy who made disrespectful comments. To her, the “chivalrous” thing to do would have been to serve a beat down to defend her.

I personally don’t consider bustling someone’s nose as a chivalrous act but I

Are they into Strip clubs?

The city of Atlanta has no shortage of places to go and see scantily clad women dance around. It shouldn’t surprise you when you meet someone who spends a lot free time at strip clubs. My friend Kate thinks there should be some concern if too much time is spent there. If they are into strip clubs, is it a red flag?

Some people treat these places like

First date, now what?

7:49 am Jan. 20, 2015

One of our readers had a first date with someone who didn’t really show a lot of reaction. It was hard to tell if things were going great or it took a nosedive at some point. She figured he wasn’t interested and chalked it up to lack of attraction. She was surprised when he asked her out again.

How do you define cheating?

7:59 am Jan. 15, 2015

There has been a little bit of debate among friends about what is considered cheating. I remember when my ex tried to explain to me that his married friend texting with a woman shouldn’t be classified as cheating. It’s almost like we try to blur the lines between what is cheating and what is harmless flirt.

Realistically, the only definition of cheating we should be concerned about is our
