Dating: The worst red flags

5:42 am Jun. 1, 2015

Whenever I see someone trapped in a bad relationship, I wonder how they could have overlooked early signs of foolishness.  The truly awful people aren’t able to hide their crazy for too long.  A lot of times, they reveal certain things that let you know what type of character they have.  Why don’t we pay more attention, though?

We explain away the previous relationship drama they had.  We ignore the bad

Dating: But we just broke up!

7:43 am May. 4, 2015

This weekend Jenna discovered her last boyfriend is engaged to be married. They just broke up in January.  Obviously it’s a shock to her since he claimed she was rushing the relationship after 1 year.  Since he proposed to his new woman so fast, she feels betrayed.  She also wonders if he was seeing this woman before they officially broke up.

When a relationship ends, do you think a cooling off

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?

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.

Keeping it sexy

Sean doesn’t know how to ask his girlfriend about why she has let herself go.  It is an awkward conversation that has the potential to really go off the rails.  When they first started seeing each other she would work out with him all the time.  Now she let her gym membership go and stopped running every week.  He thinks this is only the beginning because she doesn’t dress sexy

Ready to settle down?

When Mike met his girlfriend he wasn’t looking for a serious relationship.  Now that they have been together a year, he thinks she is the one.  He is happy with the relationship, he just doesn’t know if he is ready to settle down and get married.  What makes someone realize they are ready to settle down?

After you have played the field for a long time, do you think it is

Everyone has baggage

7:40 am Mar. 23, 2015

My friend Greg is a stickler for dating without drama. The first sign of drama and he tends to jump ship.  He had one bad experience with a drama queen once so he is extra cautious not to relive that ordeal.  I think he is a little too cautious, though.  Just because people show some emotion or deals with a crisis doesn’t mean  they have drama.

We all come with a
