I've been with my ex since high school. We were best friends and our relationship has been off and on. It's been mainly off and on because of him; he can't let go of the sexual abuseSexual abuse, also referred to as molestation, is the forcing of undesired sexual behavior by one person upon another. When that force is immediate, of short duration, or infrequent, it is called...(Click for full definition.) that happened in his past. He's forever thinking that he hurts me when I tell him that he...

My boyfriend and I are both in college and have been together for about 6 months now. Two years previous to this, we dated in high school for 8 months. Just recently, he found out that I cheated on him in that past relationship. He has since broken up with me and called me a compulsive liar for not telling him. I did lie about it, but I knew he would end things. I wasn't in love with him the first time we dated and I have grown and matured during the time we were apart but I am afraid...

I know this guy for around 6 months. We are school mates. We went out a few times for movies, dinner, and even went home together after school. However, things started to change a few months ago. He wasn't as enthusiastic in contacting me as before (we used to chat on facebook almost every night and he would always be the one who started the chat first). At first, I thought that he might be too busy with his studies and didnt manage to have the time to contact me. Therefore, I took...

I hope and pray that my testimony will be put into consideration and get the opportunity to be answered. Coz right now I've lost the lamps of my judgement! I've had a boyfriend who's 1 year older than me....its been a distance relationship of which somehow I've managed to survive for like two years, I dealt with a guy that would seem and admit to love you but hardly show it. He could hardly txt me or call me claiming to be busy and naturally ...

i have been with him for 7 months. i'm 19 and he's 23. the relationship has been beyond perfect. however, i have the type of personality where if little things bother me, i hold them in and one day i do something drastic like cutting a person out of my life. my boyfriend wouldn't really make me a priority the past month or two but it wouldn't be bad, it was just little things but i was always afraid to bring it up because i didn't want to ruin the amazing times that we were...

Hi Dr. Love! Thank you for providing this service. They say fortune favors the brave, but sometimes even the strong need a lifting hand to get back in the saddle again.... I'm a 42-year-old female. I've been in a relationship with a younger man, 13 years younger. I never dated younger men and broke this rule because he was so mature and very different from any man I've ever met. Our relationship has been perfect. We have had open communication, honesty...

Dear Dr. Jamie, Thank you for providing this interface. I have been seeing a person for seven years and we were to get married in a few months. To my shock my fiance confessed to an affair with a grossly inappropriate person, his boss older by 27 years. He feels very guilty for having betrayed me and for having spoiled the boss' reputation. My fiance has been through a very difficult childhood having lost his father at a young age to drinking. His family provided him with very little...

I am 53 and have been with a man 23 years. We are both health care professionals. We have 3 young children. He is a very charming prominent doctor and he has, to say the least...been living a double life. I realize he is a sociopath and I was wondering if you have ever had success with people like him and what does it take. Do they ever see themselves as having this problem? I think he has been like this since late childhood. Is therapy long term for these people? Did you ever see them get...

Me and my ex boyfriend were together for a very happy 3 and a half years, a couple of months ago he said he wanted to end it as he didn't know who he was a person anymore, he did not know if we could live or function without eachother. We are both 24 years old, I was and still am heart broken however a couple of weeks after he broke it off he invited me over to watch a film and spend time together and said he realised how much I meant to him and maybe we should 'see' eachother so...
