Bad Harem Day

by Amy Alkon
Wednesday, May 7 — Q: I’m 30, and I’ve been married to my sweet, beautiful wife for three years. I am a bartender at a club and have numerous opportunities to cheat dangled in front of me. After coming close on several occasions, I finally told my wife I wasn’t happy, and we separated three months ago as a prelude to divorcing. I moved in with a friend and started taking advantage of my new single life. However, it’s already getting old. I miss my wife and her intelligence and our connection. How do I start the conversation with her about getting back together?

Sneer Pressure And Along Came Polygraph

by Amy Alkon
Wednesday, Apr. 30 — Q: My boyfriend of eight years and I love each other to death and are very happy. Still, I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t bother me that some people think we aren’t in a “real” relationship because we aren’t married and live separately. Is there a way to get them to respect the validity of our relationship without walking down the aisle?

All Doc And No Action And Apartment 2B Or Not 2B

by Amy Alkon
Wednesday, Apr. 23 — Q: I’ve been going to the same primary care doctor for a few years. I’m very attracted to him, and I believe he’s attracted to me, too. There’s always been a dynamic between us. I thought it was his “bedside manner,” but when I asked others, they didn’t have the same experience with him. I know he isn’t married. Also, I am very healthy and only see him annually for “well checks.” Do you have any advice on whether I should do anything?

Watching Paint Die And Don Emoticon

by Amy Alkon
Wednesday, Apr. 9 — Q: I’ve been dating a girl I really like for six weeks. She pays her rent with a 9-to-5 job but studied painting at art school and wants to make it her career. Unfortunately, I don’t like her paintings at all. They are abstract and don’t look like they take much craft, and they just don’t aesthetically appeal to me.

The Fastidious And The Furious And Better Sherlock Holmes And Gardens

by Amy Alkon
Wednesday, Mar. 26 — Q: My boyfriend of nine years is extremely messy, while I prefer things tidy and clean. Cajoling, asking, and flat-out begging him for consideration and help on this hasn’t worked, nor have tactics like establishing certain areas for clutter.

Save The Wails And Snot To Trot

by Amy Alkon
Wednesday, Mar. 12 — Q: Are guys scared of politically active women? My boyfriend of two months just broke up with me over my support for animal rights, and I’ve generally had difficulty keeping boyfriends because of this. This boyfriend was bothered by two incidents. In the first, I got into an argument about zoos with one of his friends at a party. Another time, we were driving alongside a car with a pro-hunting bumper sticker, and I rolled down my window and shouted something to the driver. I’m trying to do good — protect creatures without a voice. Does that mean I don’t deserve a boyfriend?
