Ask A Question

Expertise

First and foremost if you read ahead you'll find I have a word limit on questions I'll read. This site is for short simple questions and it should not be for writing essays. Please also note I am unfamilar with most cultures outside of United Stated, UK, and France. Please respect my rules. I don't like rejecting questions. I will be the first to admit that I don't know everything about dating, women/men, and interpersonal connections. However I have learned quite a bit vicariously from other people's experiences. Think of my advice as a second opinion. I would be happy to answer all questions related to relationships, dating, self-confidence, and self-image that I can. I have struggled with all of those things and probably know better than most how to deal with all of them.

I hope more than anything that my advice and opinions will help give people perspective in their lives, and hopefully make them feel better about themselves and their situations. I will attempt answering questions for anyone of any age group or nationality. However it would be particularly useful to know the age of all people involved. It does make a difference towards the advice I give. Also not terribly familar with arranged marriages and situations in which the family can dictate the details of the relationship.

My Rules:
1). I can't answer questions that ask if a girl or guy likes the other (very difficult to know remotely)
2). No questions that are More Than 250 Words. I understand that problems can be complex, but there is a real limit to how much I can read and fully understand. Particularly if English isn't the questioner's native language.
3). Only questions from Americans, Canadians, British, and cute French women.
4). No questions that ask the meaning behind if a person sets their FB status to single, coupled, or private or if they still have a dating profile undeleted somewhere. If you're cyber snooping you're likely the issue.

Experience in the area

I don't really have any specific experience in this area other than learning from other people's mistakes and a few of my own, and whatever I've learned as a psychology major.

Education/Credentials

B.S. Psychology

What do you like about this subject?

Compatibility is an interesting topic and I would love to learn more about how social and personality psychologists determine what makes any two people a good match for one another. Sometimes opposites attract and other times birds of a feather flock together. Also topics on physically attractiveness. Particularly in what is now a rather superficial country. lol.

2016-08-23 Should I tell crush abroad I like her??.?:

Well if there is no way to make such a relationship work due to distance than perhaps there is no benefit of sharing your feelings. I guess I would let circumstances change first and keep her as a friend

2016-08-20 Should I tell crush abroad I like her??.?:

If your feeling tells you that you shouldn't than I wouldn't. But I suppose if you don't think you'll see her again you might as well. I guess I would ask your friend her opinion as it is her best friend

2016-07-25 Follow up question:

I'll be honest with you. Guys that get to date much younger women is very rare. It might be very difficult to convince him to accept that you're not going to leave him for someone you may have more in

2016-01-23 He suddenly disappeared :(:

Any number of things could have happened. Maybe he felt he came on too strong and figured he'd back off and decided not to reengage. Maybe he felt there wasn't enough chemistry or maybe you came off as

2015-12-01 what to make of this:

Well it does sound like he likes you if even his own father says he doesn't act this way around other girls. I can't tell you if it is a good idea to persue this however. I don't know the risk that this
