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]

Faith in the Future

Dear Miss U,
My boyfriend and I have always had an amazing relationship. We know we work well together and we always talk about our future together. We’ve been together for 2 years now, and about a month ago I found out he cheated on me a few months back. I broke up with him and did not speak to him for over 2 weeks, but he BEGGED and BEGGED to speak to me… [read more]

Growing in Love

Dear Miss U,
I met him on holiday and we got along really well. I live in England and he lives in Canada. He says he really wants to be with me and I really feel the same. We can’t see each other until next summer; we are going to backpack for a week. I’m missing him already and it’s been a couple of days. Can I keep at this? Book this holiday and keep messaging/calling/writing letters until then? [read more]

Pressure-less Progress

Dear Miss U,
Our situation is different. We met on vacation and kissed. But there was so much chemistry and so many sparks. It wasn’t just a fling for either of us. I know it sounds stupid, but I want this to work. And I want to bring up face timing, or Skyping or even just calling. But I don’t know how and I don’t know if it would be too much. What do you think? And how should I bring it up?? [read more]

More Than Messages

Dear Miss U,
I went to his city to go meet him a year and a half into our relationship but at the last minute he cancelled and told me his mom wouldn’t let him (he didn’t have a car). I find myself getting sick and tired of seeing my phone screen; it often gets boring. He says he will come prom day and when I graduate, but it’s a long ways away and I don’t know if I should wait anymore… [read more]

Control Thyself

Dear Miss U,
I definitely have trust issues and I cannot go a day without talking about his ex. I also feel like he has changed and doesn’t care like he used to do before. He says he hasn’t changed and I should try to understand him. Both of us have met each other’s family and they approve. In 1 year he’ll be going to England to continue his studies. And I’m afraid that he’ll find better although he keeps reassuring me that he loves me… [read more]

Is This Real? Is It Over?

Dear Miss U,
We spent a few days together and he gave me a promise ring and confessed his love for me. But when we met we went behind our parents’ backs and got caught a few weeks after. Now his parents have my number on a watchlist so they can see what/when we talk and he’s not allowed to see me because they said, even though he is moved out and 18… [read more]

Make or Break?

Dear Miss U,
We have a 7 hour time difference. She works during the day but I don’t. I stay awake until 6am to talk to her because she seems sad when I leave but when it comes to her, she sleeps her time at 10 pm, like lol? Should I cut the shit and leave her? Because I am tired of putting much more but always end up heartbroken… [read more]

On The Side

Dear Miss U,
My name is Billy. I live in Indiana. Recently my girlfriend moved to Pennsylvania to be with her son. While there she started acting really different towards me. We had our arguments, but in one argument she told me she didn’t love me anymore. We haven’t talked in about a week and a half. She just texted me today wanting me back. But she says I whine too much when I tell her how I feel… [read more]
