This Flag is Red

Dear Miss U,
I’ve known this man for over 25 years. We met via our jobs. He worked in Florida & me in New Jersey. I was married and he was engaged when we met. There was an immediate connection from the moment we met and we became good work friends but I always wondered what it would have been like. My marriage of 21 years fell apart and I was divorced in 2004. I spent 9 years trying to get my life back together and not feel like I was a failure. I didn’t date as my confidence with men was shot and I was pretty miserable. Now, fast forward to April 2013. He emailed me out of the blue, sending me a video, and before you know it we’re talking on the phone every day since! [read more]

The Power Of Success Stories

Dear Miss U,
I’m in an LDR and it’s crazy how I met my boyfriend – on a video game!! We both love each other so much but the problem is that we miss each other so much sometimes and it hurts a lot. I don’t know what to do. We usually spend all day together texting and we still have to wait for like 2 or 3 years until we meet and that’s a very long time so I really don’t know what to do… [read more]

Someone Worth Missing

Dear Miss U,
My boyfriend been living a few hours away from me for 9 weeks now. We have been together 2 years and 2 months, but best friends for almost 3 years. I am in my final year of studying in the uni we both went to and he has started his Masters in London. I am hoping to move to London in July 2018, and then we’ll be together. I am finding it really hard being apart because I’m getting used to him not being at uni whereas he has moved somewhere completely new. I miss him all the time – but I have stopped myself from being needy. But I’ve sent him sexy snaps a few times and he doesn’t always respond to them – is this worrying? [read more]

What Comes Between Us

Dear Miss U,
I ended up having drinks with another guy. Even though nothing happened and I didn’t mean for it to happen, it really bothered my boyfriend. I’ve apologized and told him that I want to make things right and earn his trust back… [read more]

Unsure Partners

Dear Miss U,
My girlfriend and I have been dating for 5 months. I care for her so much and she cares for me just as much. She called me the other night and broke up with me. She’s telling me that the distance is too much, I got really sad and just accepted it without argument. It’s been a few days and I’m trying to get her back. I’m broken without her, I’m used to texting her every moment of my day. I’ve texted her every single day since I met her. I think I love her… [read more]

Relationship Pie-namics.

Dear Miss U,
We’ve been together for almost two years, and our primary way of communication is Skype or Facebook. It’s been pretty good, but the last months have been hard. She says she doesn’t like the awkward silences we have on Skype, that the conversation doesn’t “flow naturally.” This didn’t use to happen. I’m an introvert and always had trouble making conversations, but I think she recently got tired of the fact that she’s almost always the one that initiates them… [read more]

Life = Love

Dear Miss U,

My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other for 6 months now. We met online, and met up in person 4 months ago. He is a hopeless romantic (life = love for him), and spends a lot of money to travel from Washington to Minnesota to see me. His family is not rich, and I feel like he’s spending too much money coming to visit me. I love seeing him, but I am afraid he is spending too much money on me and traveling… [read more]
