agony-auntHere is another dilemma in need of your expert guidance…..

“I’m in my twenties and expecting my first child. However, since I became pregnant my partner seems to have completely lost interest in me. He is spending lots more time with his friends, and doesn’t tend to return calls and texts. I feel bored and lonely. Should I end the relationship and bring up our baby without him around?”

agony-auntThe other day I asked you to be an agony aunt.  It seemed to go down well and so here is another problem…..

“My partner and I have been together for seven years. My partner has said that before we met he was in love with another woman. At the time the woman wasn’t interested in him and she now has a partner. But my partner and the woman have started meeting for lunch, chatting on the phone and emailing. He says it means nothing but it upsets me. Should I tell him that he has to stop contacting her?

agony-auntTime for a fun little experiment.  Imagine that you are an agony aunt and someone sends you the following problem…..

“My sister was going out with someone for 10 years. Then they split up, and she found a new guy online within a couple of months. She claims to be madly in love with him and says he’s very romantic, but I took an instant dislike to him. It’s difficult to say what it is, but I just find him creepy.”
