  1. Tell Me About It: Friends harp on couple's age difference

    Relationships

    Q: I'm 46, dating a man who's 14 years older than I am. We were friends for years and years, when we were both married, and always liked each other enormously. He got divorced, and then later I did, and an affectionate friendship deepened until it was love. Which is great! And we're happy! And we're good for each …

  3. Tell Me About It: Couple disagrees about his drinking

    Relationships

    Q: My girlfriend and I recently got into an argument about how much is appropriate to drink at a social occasion (I'm okay with drinking more, though she's certainly not a teetotaler).

    Relationships

    Q: My husband and I are expecting our first child. My mother insists on hosting a baby shower (despite my discomfort at having a family member host). I told mom that I wanted it to be co-ed — I don't see why men should be excluded from the celebration of new life.

  6. Tell Me About It: Parent needs help enforcing boundaries

    Relationships

    Q: Growing up, there were zero boundaries about what movies and television I could watch — content or amount. This was really, really not good for me. I have created lots of boundaries around these things, but I always feel like I'm not finding the right spot. Our friends and family seem to all fall on the …

  7. Tell Me About It: Workaholic desires dating for the first time

    Relationships

    Q: I've just turned 30 and I'm starting to come around to the idea that being a fiercely independent workaholic with no life outside the office might not be all it's cracked up to be. This is the first time I've really thought about trying to date, so I've missed out on all the experience that everyone else my …

  8. Tell Me About It: Kids' weight shouldn't be focus for family

    Relationships

    Q: I am very concerned about my nephew and niece, both clinically obese. Their pediatrician warned years ago that they were at risk of getting diabetes, but every passing year they get bigger and bigger. They are young enough where their diet is largely controlled by their parents, yet poor nutrition is the …
