Dear Dr. Love, My husband and I have been married six years. One year ago we moved from New York City to San Diego. I had a career opportunity here that was too good to pass up. The problem is my husband has not been able to find a job since moving here and it is putting a terrible strain on our marriage. He is in the computer industry and has sent out hundreds of resumes without much luck at all. After rent and bills there is not much money left over. His confidence is low and I try to have...

Hi Dr. Turndorf, First I will give you a little background of my life. I suffer from OCD and Anxiety Disorders. I am 27 years old, and have only been on medication for about 4 years. However, while the medication has been effective, my symptoms have been 95% stopped for only the last 6 months. I have had a couple of girlfriends, but nothing that has lasted. It took several years to find a medication combination that worked this well. So, I am not very experienced with dating. I am average...

My husband and I have been married for close to 4 years. During this 4 year period, we have had a satisfying sexual relationship. But, I will add that we have had our share of dry spells. All of these 'dry spells' were caused by me. I would go through periods of having little interest in sex. But they usually would not last long. Then close to four months ago, I was diagnosed with depression and put on the medication Zoloft. This medication has done wonders for my life. BUT, it has really hurt...

I am a 29 year old male who has noticed a significant decrease in penis sensation over the years. In fact, I really do not feel anything until about 30 seconds before I ejaculate. In order to get that far I need lots of oral sex with a strong hand grip going up and down from the female. It has lessened my desire for sex and has destroyed some of my relationships. I wonder if there is a problem or if what I am experiencing is normal sexual sensations. If so, I can't even understand why...

I am happily married, however my husband has no interest. We have been married for six years, and haven't had sex in over a year. I have done a psych self exam about my weight, attitude, and sought advice of many others. I am in my forty's and am really very interested in sex. However-- my husband, who is 45 seems less than interested. Please advise--

I am much more interested in sex than my husband. It causes problems in our marriage because I feel he doesn't love me as much because he rejects my advances more often than not. To compensate, I masterbate fairly frequently. We have been married 14 years and have a 4 year old and a 9 month old. I get less sleep by far than he does and yet he still uses the too tired excuse, among others, on a regular basis. If it weren't for the kids and the fact that he is truly a good man, I'd...

I'm not so happy with what's happening between me and my gf (girlfriend), and kinda stuck, and don't know whose fault it is, or is it normal between us. But I guess I'll just lay it out here so you might be able to help me with a suitable solution. Here goes: I've been in love with my girlfriend for a year. We both live and work in Australia. Her family is in the US. I care a lot about my gf, and I suppose that's what people do when they are in love. I'm...

Dear Dr. Love, Hi. I'm Mary. . .and I'm 15. I hope you please answer this question in your column. . .it's very important to me. About a year and 3 months ago - I met my first love over the internet.

He thought this made me tainted.. .used. . .And he couldn't deal with that. Since January. . we've been trying to...
