Dear V: New year, new me?

Dear V, I’m a freshman that just started school at the U. My nose is crooked from an accident in middle school. It never bothered me much, as I’m from a small town in the Midwest and, there, people couldn’t care less about your appearance. At least, they care a lot less than here in…

Dear V: Boyfriend becoming beauty guru

Dear V, Lately, my boyfriend has picked up an interesting hobby – one that I wouldn’t expect, given he’s on the football team and is in a frat – he started wearing makeup. At first, it was a joke. He had a zit one day, so I taught him how to cover it up with a bit of…

Dear V: Are ‘flirtationships’ really cheating?

Dear V, Lately, I’ve noticed my boyfriend has been hiding his phone from me. He seems to always be texting someone, but he doesn’t tell me who it is. On Instagram, I noticed a girl commenting on all of his pictures. I’ve had an inkling that he’s been cheating for a while, so I asked…

Dear V: Social media obsession ruining relationship

Dear V, My girlfriend is a self-titled “social media queen.” She’s always posting somewhere, from Facebook and Instagram to Pinterest DIY tags and Tumblr fandoms. It was cute at first. She’d post a selfie with me and our friends would gawk over us on Facebook. I thought she was just showing off the new guy…

Dear V: Weathering storms without an umbrella

Dear V, Lately, my boyfriend has been pushing for us to have sex without a condom. I trust him and we’ve been dating for years, so I’m not afraid of STIs. That said, though, I’m not on birth control. I used to be on the pill, but I went off it because it made me…

Dear V: Boyfriend’s fetishes becoming too extreme

Dear V, My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year or so. We met on a fetish website and hit it off instantly, so we’re just as close to each other physically as we are emotionally, and we’ve shared a lot of unique moments. We’ve enjoyed trying out new things in the bedroom….

Dear V: How do I shake my clingy FWB?

Dear V, I’ve had a friend with benefits for a while. Things have been good so far; we talk once a week or so, hook up a few times a month and occasionally hang out together in our group of friends. Problem is, I think my FWB is developing feelings for me. At first, I…

Dear V: Boyfriend fears I’m sizing down

Dear V, I’ve been considering getting a breast reduction. They’re much less common than implants – you might say “bigger is better” – but I’m an athlete and my DD’s get in the way of my ability to perform well playing soccer and running track and field. It’s not that I’m not comfortable with my…

Dear V: I’m wrapped up in his baby-mama drama

Dear V, I’ve been seeing a guy who’s five years older than me. When he was in high school, he accidentally got a girl pregnant. They decided to keep the baby, but ended up breaking up a few years ago. He visits his ex frequently to check in on his child, but it’s clear he…

Dear V: My boyfriend’s taking ‘Zootopia’ too far

Dear V, Lately, my boyfriend has become interested in “furries,” that is, the subculture of people who enjoy things like My Little Pony and erotic animal art. At first, I thought he was just trying to freak me out. He joked about wanting to lick my feet the first time we hooked up, but it…

Dear V: Sister’s crush starting to get awkward

Dear V, The guy I’m dating is great – he’s sweet, caring and has a great sense of humor. My family loves him. Thing is, someone in my family loves him too much. My younger sister is a freshman in high school and, even though I can’t blame her, she’s developed a crush on my…
