LSS #10 – I resent my partner for being so f*cking great

advice column

Dear Stacey,

I am currently in a committed relationship but I am having an itch for something else. It’s not that I don’t love my partner, but I just feel like I’m not this person anymore. Right now being in an exclusive relationship feels stifling and it’s making me irritable. Lately, I have been snippy and hard to be around, which I know is unfair to my partner.

dating after divorce

Dear Stacey,

I have been divorced for less than 6 months, following a 20-year marriage to a man that I adored. The divorce was devastating, but now I think I’m ready to move on. I still believe in love and quite honestly, I miss being touched. I feel like I am ready to date again.

Long Story Short #8 – 5 mins of foreplay doesn’t get me wet

advice column - not enough foreplay

Dear Stacey,

I’m in a great relationship with my boyfriend of almost a year. We started out as a casual sex relationship and then started dating (breaking all the rules!). About six months in, he asked that we make the relationship official, meaning, monogamous and I said yes. Prior to this, I was practicing ethical non-monogamy. We have a good relationship. He’s been supportive during my underemployment and while I’m in school. He’s hard to read, so in the beginning, I wasn’t confident that he was even all that into me.

Long Story Short #3 – Masturbating is Easier

masturbating is easier

Dear Stacey,

I am a 37 yr old married woman. My husband and I have been together for 12 years (married for 7). We are parents to a beautiful 5-year-old daughter. 

We both do work that we love. I am growing an online business and my husband is a plumber. He and his partner opened their own outfit a little over 2 years ago. They have been getting some pretty good corporate contracts. The business is expanding much faster than they ever imagined. It feels good to see my husband excited about his work and enjoying his success.

Long Story Short #2 – beating dead horses

advice column

Dear Stacey,

I’ve been in an on again, off again relationship for the past 5 years. I know we could be good together, but we always get stuck on the same old shit. It seems like we never get past the same bump in the road. It’s been going on for so long now that I cannot help but wonder if we are beating a dead horse. How do you know when it’s time to give up and move on?
