Stay in the Bay After Graduation?

April 13, 2018
I’m graduating this May and I want to stay in the Bay Area. I’m happy here since all my friends are here and I just love the area. But my parents want me to go back to the East Coast. I’m looking at job options and everything that I’m interested in is in the bay, but I don’t want to disappoint my parents either since I do care about them. Any thoughts?

Long distance love losing steam

April 6, 2018
I've been dating my long-distance boyfriend for a while now, about 10 months. We started dating during the last few months of high school. I see him about once every month for a weekend or so. I feel like I've lost the physical attraction, but he has a very attractive personality/character that I would be sad to lose. He's my best friend. When we kiss, I don't feel the spark anymore though. And the sex was never really satisfying for me. I know it's satisfying for him and that he isn't losing the physical or emotional attraction. What should I do? We'll be within a 5-minute drive of each other during the summer, but it's a long-distance relationship during the school year.
