Dear Anthea, I have a real problem with a man in my life. We have been seeing each other on and off for years but he won’t make a commitment of an exclusive relationship. I end up going over to his place and spending the night, I keep thinking things will be different and start progressing but they never do. I can’t seem to end the relationship, he doesn’t call me for weeks but I always end up contacting him. – Yasmin, 41

Hi Anthea! I’m a 40 something, newly divorced woman and I want to get back into the dating scene. I look great for my age, the problem is the only guys who approach me are much younger. Don’t get me wrong, they are hot and I’m interested, but I’m worried about what other people will think. How young is too young for me to date? Evelyn, 40

Dear Anthea, Help! My friends don’t like my new boyfriend! One friend in particular is always making rude comments about him. It’s putting me in an uncomfortable situation, and starting to affect my friendships. Should I say something to my friends? – Gloria, 29

Hey Anthea! I met a guy a few weeks ago and we’ve been texting ever since but he hasn’t asked me out. I told him we should meet for drinks and he said we should get to know each other better before that. Is he not interested? – Elizabeth, 26

Hi Anthea, I recently joined an online dating site and I’m having success meeting great girls, but the cost of dating is starting to add up. What is your advice on who pays?

I have a good number of friends who are over 40 and single. All are adorable, in reasonably good to great shape, successful, interesting, funny and have great personalities. But they still have trouble finding “The One.”

You may find more and more things about your partner that you dislike and really get under your skin. It’s important not to let these feelings of irritation grow and spread.

I was just a kid of 25 having dinner with relatives at my parent’s home in Westwood. It was 1975 and being single was more fun than ever! I was married, so I was committed to married sex.

Dear Anthea, I’ve been dating and dating for what seems like forever and still haven’t found anyone. Is it okay to take a break and stop dating for a while? I want to find someone and be proactive but the process is becoming frustrating.

I’m married. Usually happily. But if I wasn’t, where does a woman over 50 who looks more like 40, that is attractive, successful, financially stable, a great cook, well-traveled, funny, semi-athletic, spiritual, an animal-lover, generous, and well-connected find their soul mate? (What, a little too specific?)

Hi Anthea, At what point should a man tell someone that he has, had, or is still having psychotherapy? I think I’m a lot better now and hate to tell half-truths. – Ted, 57

I’ve been dating a girl for about a month that I really like, but I feel like it’s too much of a one way street as I’m always the first to contact her to set up dates. We always have a great time when we’re together, but I’m confused when I leave a few days to a week to wait for her to text me first, but she never does. However, as soon as I text her, she always says yes to seeing me again. What should I do?

I’ve been seeing a great guy for a few months now. I’ve been waiting so long for him to tell me he loves me. Should I tell him first?

Dear Anthea, I’ve been dating my girlfriend for only 1 month, and the holidays are coming up. It’s going pretty well, but is it too soon to introduce my girlfriend to my friends and family? – Jim, 31

I’m worried my boyfriend of five months is cheating on me. Recently I’ve noticed that he never answers the phone or stays on the computer when I’m in the room and he acts really secretive about his whereabouts. How do I find out if he’s cheating?

Dear Anthea, Recently I’ve noticed unpleasant feelings when I think about dating. I can’t help but be jealous whenever I see happy couples. It seems like all of my friends have boyfriends and I wonder what I’m doing wrong because I’m prettier, smarter, and more successful than all of them. I hate to admit it but I’m angry and jealous.

Dear Anthea, I’ve been single for a while and I really want to try online dating. Do you have any advice? – Amanda, 28

Hi Anthea! I have had a rough year of dating, but I really want to find a girlfriend who I can spend time with for exclusive dating. Almost three years ago I dated a girl who I really fell for, but she broke it off after three months as she had just moved to LA and didn’t want to be serious with anyone.

Dear Anthea, I’m looking to settle down and get married, but I never seem to meet the right guy! What questions should I be asking on first dates to figure out if he could be the one for me? I don’t want to scare a potential great guy off if I’m too forward about marriage too soon, but I don’t want to waste time if he’s just after a fling. - Maria, 30

First, I want to congratulate you for being so connected with the pulse of the relationship to sense that it’s beginning to go in a direction you don’t want. It’s never okay for someone to expect you to be ‘on call’ for them 24/7.

Dear Anthea, My boyfriend and I have been dating for seven months and he won’t ‘Friend’ me on Facebook! I had explained to him that it’s time for us to take this next step and show the world we are a couple. Shouldn’t he be proud of me and our relationship? Is he hiding something?
