Relationships take a lot of work. And sometimes no matter how hard we try, there are problems. I’m by no means an expert. My name is Tracy and I want you to consider me a friend, someone who will listen to your problems and tell you what I think.
Here are some questions I’ve already answered for other people. But if you find you want to hit me up, then but sure and fill out the form below to ask your own question.
- How do I tell my boyfriend to stop using me?
My boyfriend was having problems at his work, so he moved in with me to save money. Only things turned from bad to worse, and he ended up losing that job.
- How do I tell my in-laws I don't want their advice?
I love my husband's family, I really do, but that doesn't mean I want to hear their unsolicited advice about how to raise my daughters, either. His sister is the worst.
- What does it mean to go dark in a relationship?
I was taking a guy for two years. We were living together and one day he moved out and hasn’t talked to me for days. I’m going out of my mind. I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried texting him. Sending him DMs on social media. Nothing works. I really am losing it. Please help.
- First Date Freakout!
I haven’t been on a date in years. After my divorce, I took some much-needed ME TIME. But now that I’m getting back out there, I’m kind of freaking out about going on my first date in decades. Any tips?
- Nice Guys Are The Absolute Worst
I got a new job about three months ago and I thought it was going well. Everyone was nice enough. One guy, in particular, seemed to go out of his way to make me feel welcome. As nice as he was though, something about him just made my skin crawl.
- Why do people hate me?
I started working at this new store about two months ago and to be honest, it hasn’t been easy. I not only haven’t made any new friends, but many people just flat out hate me, and I have no idea why. What can I do? I need some advice, and I have no one to turn to.
- Is it true that women are smarter than men?
I heard that the two highest IQ scores in recorded history belong to women. Is this true? If so who are they? I can’t find proof to back this statement up.
- Do we spend Thanksgiving with his family or mine?
I’ve been with my boyfriend for about a year and a half now. Last year we were still too new to worry about spending the holidays with his family or mine, we each just went to our own family’s house for Thanksgiving. But now we’ve gotten far more serious and I’m not sure how to handle Thanksgiving. Do we go to his families house or mine?
- How can I make my ex-boyfriend miss me?
I regret breaking up with my boyfriend and want him back. How do I go about making him miss me?
