How do you break up with a co-worker?

6:24 am Apr. 29, 2015

A reader, Greg, would like advice on a dating dilemma.  He began dating a co-worker a few months ago but  she isn’t a good match for him.  He believes that she feels the same way about him, so the break up should not be surprising.  He wants to know how do you break up with someone you are dating if you work together?

To further complicate things, Greg wants to ask

Monogamy easier for women?

7:38 am Apr. 24, 2015

I have talked to people who believe that men aren’t “designed” to be faithful.  They point to biology and the desire to spread seeds or something.  What baffles me is when they say women manage mongamgy so much easier.  I am not clear on what evidence they have for this.  Why do some believe that women can be faithful with such ease?

People cheat for different reasons and I think women

Dating: How forgiving are you?

7:02 am Apr. 22, 2015

You definitely need a lot of patience date in Atlanta.  You will meet a lot of knuckleheads and con artists who misrepresent themselves.  You can also meet really sweet people who may make mistakes or use bad judgment.  These are the ones that should be forgiven or given second chances.  How do you know when to forgive and when to forget them?

Love at first sight?

7:46 am Apr. 20, 2015

I consider myself to be just as romantic as the next person.  I’ve still not been a strong believer in the idea of love at first sight, though.  Sure you can feel strong attraction, lust, or be mesmerized by someone, but love? I don’t know that is what I would call love.

My friend Greg disagrees because he said he loved his wife from the moment he saw her.  He thinks

What is wife material?

A friend of mine was told that in order to be wife material, she probably should not be out every weekend.  Apparently, single women who go out too much can send the wrong message?  I suppose the idea is that you have to actually show that you are ready to settle down.

I don’t ever hear about men being told this, though.  Are men expected to show they are husband material?

Would you pick love or career?

8:10 am Apr. 8, 2015

What would you do if you got an amazing job offer in another city/country at the same time your relationship became exclusive? One of our readers had to face a decision: stay and give the new relationship a chance of survival or take the career opportunity?

I think if I had to decide this when I was younger, I would probably have picked the relationship.  Now that I’m older and Uh

Dating: Break up disclosure?

5:00 am Apr. 6, 2015

I know a couple who decided to take a break from their exclusive relationship.  The break only lasted 6 months but they dated other people. The guy hooked up with multliple women, including his ex-wife.  When the couple got back together, the girlfriend said she definitely did not want to know about his six months of freedom.  I was surprised because women usually want to know those kinds of things.

Why don’t we court each other?

8:20 am Apr. 1, 2015

Some people believe that single people today don’t really know how to court. Date requests are tweeted. Flirting is done with snapchat. We swipe left or right to determine interest or disinterest.  Well, maybe social media makes us lazy but does that mean courting has to go away?

Remember courting? Picking a date up. Getting ready for a night with someone cool.  Making real plans for spending time together.  The concept
