Somewhat relationship related... Since going on the pill a few months ago, my vagina seems to have forgotten how to lubricate itself. My SO doesn't have a problem with it, but it makes me self conscious about sex. What can I do?

i have a friend that i like, and he likes me to. we didn't like each other from the beginning, and it was all a game when we started chatting. but now we came out with our feelings. we never kissed because i didn't wanted to, but we did a lot of other stuff. the problem is that he has s gf and i don't think he would leave her, or at least i don't want him to. i like him a lot, but i am no sure if i want to be with him. sometimes it's great to be with him and i love him, but others it feels wrong

I may have been exposed to HPV. I am a male. Is there anything I can do?
My boyfriend and I have our anniversary coming up tomorrow, but we won't be able to see each other and we can't skype or anything. I still want to do something special for the day though, what do I do?

I’m dating a guy who constantly treats me like crap when we’re apart, but when we’re together, it’s 180. Why is he acting like this? How do I change his behavior?

My girlfriend cheated on me and she swears it was a one time drunken mistake. We’ve been together for 4 years. Should I forgive her? She’s never lost my trust before but I am really hurt by this.

There's this guy- a relationship without a label. He stated he needed space after about 2 weeks and that he "liked me too much" and was scared. we decreased hanging out- then we began hanging out again. I had sex with him, he was my first. since then we've been friends with benefits- but I think I am liking him too much and half the time we will only talk once or twice during the week- he's very distant but still treats me like i'm everything when i'm with him- what do i do, i'm confused

This is a really uncomfortable situation. I think the best thing to do is to be very explicit that you do NOT want to be contacted anymore…don’t sugar coat anything! Let him know upfront that you are not interested and that you would like him to stop calling. If this persists to the point of it making you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, you should definitely talk to the police. –Guest Barista Emily
I have been had a crush on a good friend for a few months. He recently ended a long-term relationship, and about a month later I asked him out, to which he seemed really flattered and said he'd think about. A couple weeks later, he said he didn't think of me that way and it didn't seem like a good idea. More recently though, he seems really flirty and seems like he is now crushing on me. Should I try again, or would it seem desperate? Is the "ball in his court?"

I’m dreading going home during the Winter Break. Whenever I’m home my parents treat me like a teenager. They quiz me about where I’m going and even enforce a midnight curfew! What can I do to make my life less miserable during the break?
I have never been in a relationship before, and I wonder if it is because I am too picky in looking for partners. While looking for potential girlfriends, I never seem to get the 'perfect storm': Similarities in personalities and interests, physical attraction, and reciprocated interest. It always ever seems to be just two at a time. My friends insist I just haven't met the 'right person'... But can I honestly expect to meet such a 'perfect storm' person, or is that just a fairy tale?

I spent most of my college career dating this special girl I met freshmen year. She was my bestfriend and I always thought that no matter what happened between the two of us, we would at least want to be friends. After our relationship ended, that friendship I spent years building disappeared. I want to be friends with her, but I am not sure how to make it work out. Time hasn't helped and I we don't even talk anymore. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

It’s Reading/Review/Recitation (RRR) Week. But don’t just go to the library…take some breaks with friends. We’re adding a 4th “R” for relaxation. Obviously this is not the time to take days off for relaxation :-) But well timed breaks with friends will help you stay healthy— so you can concentrate and learn more easily when you do hit the books. Have a great RRRR week!
I'm a fourth year with a girlfriend, whose graduated from the same school, of almost a year and it's going pretty good. We have our similarities, but we do share a few important, but no deal-breaking differences. Anyways, her major is probably the complete opposite of my major so our futures are pretty destined to go in different directions. Long distance is possible, but we realize it probably wouldn't work out. Breaking up is pretty unavoidable. Should we just break it off now or wait?

The one in question is at least five years older than me and a Ph.D. candidate in a field I'm VERY interested in, but I'm just a lowly undergrad struggling in this GSI's class. I understand (and agree) that taking any action while the student-teacher relationship is going on is unprofessional and bound to lead to sticky situations, but is there anything I can do now to give myself a chance later (other than doing well in the class)?

My roommate goes out partying/drinking and comes back late and just goes to bed without showering or changing and she stinks up the whole room because of it (she goes partying days at a time then wakes up early to go to class so she goes days without showering). Is there a nicer way to say “you stink, please shower at least once a day?”

I’m a virgin and want to practice abstinence, but I feel like all couples do in college is have sex. How can I find a guy who will love me for what I believe in?

I'm showing signs of depression (near constant sadness, trouble sleeping, increased anxiety, hair loss, loss of interest in activities, etc.) and I can't help but think it's related to his new relationship. It's been over a year since we broke up. Is this normal? And how can I better come to terms with it?

I’m shy and I’m having trouble asking people out. What advice can you give me to ask this cute guy out I really like?

Is there a window of opportunity to ask a girl on a date before they put you in the friend zone? I’ve never actually been on a date with a girl before, because I want to be friends/talk to them for a while to get to know them a little bit before working up the courage to ask them out. However, they usually end up saying they only think of me as a friend when I ask them eventually. Am I approaching this the right way or should I ask them out before we establish too much of a connection or what?
