DATING ADVICE

Your guide to relationships without 'labels'

Hey Lauren,

I've been involved with someone for about 6 months and when I say involved we are not boyfriend/girlfriend but we spend a good amount of time together and we are having sex. She's a full time student and doesn’t have a lot of free time. I'm just working right now so I have more free time than her. Lately, with finals coming up and school being crucial right now, I haven't seen her in almost 3 weeks. I'm fine with time apart, totally fine, as long as I k...

Initiating sex: who's job is it really?

Dear Lauren,

Within the couple, who is supposed to initiate sex?

-Charles


Hi Charles,

Who initiates sex and Why

Both. Either. Everyone.

I’m going to answer your question more specifically but I want to make it very clear that this is not a one-size-fits-all response.

It’s in trying to make sex a one-size-fit’s-all concept that causes so much of the confusion, misunderstanding, shame and frustration between couples in the bedroom.

How one silly game can change your sex life forever.

Dear Lauren,
I’ve heard about how women enjoy “the little things” but frankly, every time I’ve tried doing something for my wife small or otherwise, she barely notices. On top of that she’s always complaining about how overwhelmed and overworked she is and how little I contribute around the house. It’s discouraging. I try to do things but it’s never enough. I’ve given up. How do I make this woman happy?

Hi Eric,
I can see how that ...

Is it just sex or does he genuinely care for me?

Dear Lauren,
I met a guy online who invited me to go sailing and have dinner on his boat. I was surprised to find he was noticeably shorter and older than he stated in his profile. I figured I’d stick it out anyway. After dinner we made love in the cabin. I’m not someone who sleeps with a man on the first date but I was swept away and felt helpless to stop. He took me sailing two more times that month, 8-9 hours of talking, having fun and making love. I really felt connected to him...

My girl has pulled away, what does this mean?

Hi Lauren,

I started a new relationship 2 months ago. We’ve spent a large amount of time together in bliss and we both seemed to really enjoy the attachment. My girlfriend has recently had out of town family members come to visit and between me and them had little time for herself. Is it appropriate and healthy for the relationship if she indicates she needs time apart from the relationship to take care of herself? It also seems on other occasions when she wants to take time for herse...
