My fiancé and I are moving into a new apartment. While packing, he discovered a box of stuff from past relationships, he kept all the love notes and little presents. Why?

I’m having sex with my best friend and we’re falling for each other. Should I pull away to save the friendship or just go with the flow and potentially ruin the friendship?

Don’t kid yourself. It’s already too late to pull away. Things are gonna get awkward the second you two start sleeping with other people, so you might as well go with the flow.

I’m a 22-year-old virgin with no real interest in sex or any kind of physical intimacy. Is there something wrong with me?

I have a criminal record. It’s a felony charge for possession of a usable amount of marijuana. Is there any way for me to not be automatically dismissed from career opportunities? Or should I just bring you the drink menu?

Hire a lawyer and get the conviction expunged. It’s absolutely ridiculous that you’re forced to call yourself a criminal for possession of a plant.
