My Boyfriend Is Unmotivated and Lazy

From Quebec: I’m 19 and I have been dating my current boyfriend for a little under 3 years now. Compared to past experience with men, he is amazing.

Why Won’t He Kiss Me or Reciprocate?

I have been seeing someone for the past 7 months. I have been giving him oral sex. He will barely touch me and when he does it’s only over my clothes.

When I ask him why he will evade the subject, he doesn’t want to talk...

How Can I Make Sure I Do Not Accidentally Say the Wrong Name?

In my current relationship, there are a lot of issues stemming from my past marriage, issues that cause my wife insecure feelings and feelings of being ‘the second one’.

I heard that it hurt...
