Soul Fire

Dear Miss U,

I’m in need of your advice. My boyfriend and I have been going out for a while. We already live 30 min away from each other and we get our licenses in September. This summer I am moving 3 hours away from him and I don’t really know what to do to keep this relationship going… [read more]

Not Funny, No Kidding.

Dear Miss U,

I love my boyfriend very very much but I’m really scared to tell my parents. I know it’s silly and all but it’s hard to let them know I’m in a relationship with someone who isn’t here. I don’t want to end it with my boyfriend; he’s the love of my life. He’s coming down next year and I really don’t know how to explain to my parents… [read more]

Don’t Give Up

Dear Miss U,
I got reconnected with an old classmate, and we are in love despite the miles. I had just joined the Air Force. I have a contract. He knew. We got engaged, planned the wedding, 3 months out he says he can’t move, and can’t marry me. We decided to try and make it work just as girlfriend and boyfriend. But it was like something was still eating at our relationship. Last night he told me that for a while now he’s been losing feelings for me. That hurt… [read more]

Rocking Horse Cowgirls

Dear Miss U,
…We’ve been together for 6 months now, and up until two weeks ago, we would talk, Skype, Snapchat, and text all the time. He recently moved and has stopped talking to me almost completely. When we do talk, he is uninterested and usually Snapchatting someone on his phone… [read more]

One & Only

Dear Miss U,

I reacquainted with my teenage love after almost 30 years. I’m in love with him and says he loves me so much. We are in a long distance relationship. We have been seeing each other now for 2 years. He told me in the beginning that he has been seeing numerous women and continued to see them during our courtship. I tried breaking it off several times but he insists that I am the woman for him… [read more]

Holding Patterns

Dear Miss U,
…We have made plans for me to move to be there 3 times. I wasn’t ready the 1st time; the 2nd got close, and he would ignore any texts about it. Then one day he got angry and said he won’t move in the winter, so we planned for summer. Summer came, and I had everything all set to give up my whole life and be there with him. He ignored my texts about it… [read more]

Having Sext?

Dear Miss U,
…We use to spend a lot of time on the phone between meetings. Since I came back to Ontario a month ago, something has changed and I can’t figure it out. I’m insecure and can’t get past it. We have made so many incredible memories together. He says he cares and we’ll figure it out. But his disappearing without any kind of peace of mind. Makes me worry. I’ve even crossed the line and opened a fake Facebook account and he bit! … [read more]

You’re Not Wrong

Dear Miss U,
My boyfriend and I have been dating for a bit over 3 years now but we have been long distance for a little over 2 years. In other words, we have been a long distance couple for most of our relationship. I moved to the US for school and my boyfriend, who is back home, is now done with college, but I have two more years left in undergrad. We do plan to get married but other than being too young by our country’s traditions, there are factors against us such as finances and school for me. The long distance relationship is getting really hard for us both, and I just want us to get married so he can legally move to live with me while I am in school… [read more]

Under-Qualified

Dear Miss U,
I matched with a guy on an app while he was in town. We didn’t get to meet up but we exchanged numbers and have been talking almost every day since. We quickly got to know each other and made plans for me to visit since he can’t visit me (financial issues)… The reason I haven’t visited him yet is because I don’t like how I look. I’ve been working on my fitness but I’m not where I’d like to be. I hope to be ready by the end of the year. I’ll visit him only when I feel comfortable. I haven’t told him this… [read more]
