Dear Coleen I’m 26 and I’ve fallen in love with my married boss. I work in a large company for three different bosses and this guy is by far the nicest to me. He’s 38 and married with two young children. He’s absolutely gorgeous and very flirtatious when we’re all out having drinks after work. I broke up with my boyfriend earlier this year and my boss was so lovely. I took a few days off after the break-up and he e-mailed me every day to check I was OK and has been very attentive since I’ve been back at work. He often seeks me out to chat or joke around and for the last few months I’ve found myself really falling for him. He’s now asked me out for drinks and I don’t know whether to go or not. I’ve asked two of my best friends – one thinks that life is too short and I should just go for it, and the other one says I should think of his wife and children and back off. What do you think? Coleen says Listen to your … [Read more...] about ‘I’m tempted to spark up an affair with my married boss’
Should i break up with my boyfriend
I don't really have anyone else to talk to about this, and I'm hoping to get some helpful advice on how to deal with what I'm feeling. Over a year ago, I confronted my boyfriend of three years about finding explicit messages/photos that he'd been sending to other women, via e-mail, viber, whatsapp. It wasn't the first time I had found and confronted him about these things, but it was the first time I had delved deeper into what was going on. Previous times he told me that it was normal for guys to look at porn and it wasn't cheating if he wasn't physically doing anything with other woman. They were only "fantasies" or he was "curious" about sex. For years since we started going out, I had been open minded about porn and him/us watching it. But the revelations of his sexting put a whole new spin on things. I knew at the time that he was very unhappy in his job and was using the porn etc as a type of escapism. For the first time he admitted that he had a problem and that he … [Read more...] about Ask Brian: My boyfriend is really protective of his phone and I think he’s sexting other women again
Singer Ariana Grande has responded to a Twitter user who accused her of breaking up with rapper ex-boyfriend Mac Miller for another man - after he wrote an album for her. On May 21, a Twitter user named Elijah Flint posted, "Mac Miller totalling his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude after he poured his heart out on a 10-song album to her called the divine feminine is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood." The tweet went viral with more than 87,000 retweets, and Grande issued a feminist response directly on Wednesday, giving insight into her relationship with Miller. The 24-year-old musician posted a powerful response to Flint on Twitter writing, "How absurd that you minimise female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which btw isn't the case (just Cinderella is ab me). I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that … [Read more...] about Ariana Grande hits back at criticism of break up with Mac Miller in feminist post
Dear Coleen I’m a guy in my 20s and I have strong feelings for my best pal. We’ve known each other since we were 16 and, although I’ve always thought of her as sexy and beautiful, it’s only recently that I’ve realised I’m in love with her. She’s had several serious boyfriends since we’ve known each other and every time she breaks up with one, I’ve been her shoulder to cry on. She's currently dating someone and I’m really jealous of their relationship. I’m finding I don’t want her to confide in me about him and I don’t think he’s good enough for her, although I’d never say that. I’ve spoken to my friends and even my mum about it and they all say to back off a bit from our friendship if it’s hurting me, but I just can’t. I feel like some kind of love-sick puppy, even though I’m a 27-year-old man with his own home and a good job. What can I do? I’m worried that if I … [Read more...] about ‘I’ve realised I’m in love with my best mate’
DEAR DEIDRE: I HAD sex with a family friend in our caravan while I was on a break from my boyfriend. Should I confess? I’m a 23-year-old nurse and my partner, 27, is a radiographer. We’ve been arguing a lot lately because sometimes we’re like ships that pass in the night. I thought Easter in our family’s static caravan would be a chance to get things back on track. My boyfriend then told me he’d been asked to cover for somebody on his team whose mother had died, so could we cancel. I was so angry he’d spoiled my plans and we argued. He yelled: “I need some time out — away from you and away from everything.” He then suggested we have a two-week break. He packed and moved back to his mother’s. I was determined not to let him get to me, so I still drove to our family caravan on my own. I grew up with the neighbours at our site. The 25-year-old son was also there with his dad for a fishing weekend. His dad was in the clubhouse … [Read more...] about I slept with a family friend while on a caravan holiday — should I confess to my boyfriend?
