My partner doesn’t want to wear condoms

This guy I am hooking up with hates to wear condoms during sex. Every time I ask him to he has a different excuse. We have had unprotected sex a few times, so he doesn't understand why I still want him to wear one. I feel bad when I ask him to and he seems annoyed. I know I'm not the only person he is hooking up with so I'm worried what can happen as well as fearful of getting pregnant. How can I make him wear a condom without feeling bad?

Leah, what you are experiencing is common for many women. Guys don’t like to wear condoms during sex for many different reasons. However, there is no excuse he can use that is good enough to skip wearing protection. This is your body and you have complete control over it. Don’t feel bad because you want […]

Trouble approaching women

I have a hard time approaching women. I like going out with my friends, but when it comes to striking up a conversation with a woman that I like I can’t bring myself to make the first move. Every time I go out with the intention to approach girls, I freeze. How do I overcome my anxiety?

Approach anxiety is not the real issue of your problem. I know. That might sound confusing, but let me ask you […]

Let’s face it, these days people can’t walk up the subway stairs without checking their phones. The truth is, people are hard-wired by technology to their jobs and responsibilities 24/7. It’s necessary to be on point and available at all times if you want to get ahead, but being shackled to your phone can also […]

Tired of being a nice guy

I’ve been told that I am too nice to girls, which is why I am single. As a nice guy, I am tired of finishing last, so how do I be mean to girls?

Nice Guys often face a perspective dilemma – they believe they must choose between nice and mean. We are so lost in our Nice Guy identities that we don’t see the alternative options. I was like this for most of my life. I thought being nice was option 1, and being an asshole was option 2. […]

I am so glad you asked me that question as I truly understand you. There are so many dating rules and advice on how to find Mr. Right, it can become daunting. We have been led down the wrong path as we search outside of ourselves for love. What everyone is searching for is the […]

Crush on coworker

I have had a crush on coworker since I started my job almost a year ago. I thought it would pass, but the feelings have only intensified because of our shared values and interests. We are both single, close in age, and I know he has not been in a serious relationship in a while. I wouldn't act on these feelings while we are in our work roles (and I know he wouldn't either) but he's getting ready to leave his position in a few weeks. Is it okay for me to express my feelings to him now? Or should I wait until after he leaves he position?

Love lives and office romances are complex right now because of all the creepy guys in a power position taking advantage of actors and employees. For that reason, I would never recommend manifesting your crush on coworker if you were both going to continue to work at the same company. But since he is leaving […]
