No Fun!

Dear Miss U,
My partner and I have been together a little bit less than two years. We meet online and haven’t been able to meet in person yet because he lives in Australia and I live in America and finding the time and money to take that kind of trip is a struggle for both of us. Until recently we seemed so connected and happy. But it seems that we are losing that bond and connection… [read more]

A Measure Of Success

Dear Miss U,
I am not new to the long distance relationships but my previous one didn’t work out but mostly I ended it because I felt we didn’t connect. With this guy, he’s an awesome person and I feel very close to him emotionally and physically. He’s in the same state, couple hours away. What bothers me the most besides, obviously the distance, is that he doesn’t have a stable job, isn’t looking for one, because he is pursuing his career as an artist, which obviously could take time… [read more]

Maybe Baby

Dear Miss U,
My boyfriend and are Italian. 88 km separate us but we see each other one or two times in a month (at the beginning of the relationship one time in two months). Next week I will go to visit him and then we will know if I’m pregnant (Yes, maybe I’m waiting for a baby, but we are not sure yet). Even if I am only 17 years old I’m a little happy. He will take his responsibility and he will live with me. He isn’t only my boyfriend, he is also my best friend… [read more]

Wifey Waiting

Dear Miss U,
I am a mother of four kids. Two from a previous relationship. Two from my current relationship. I have made the mistake of calling my boyfriend my son as well. This has been going on for years. It’s due to the fact he grew up lazy which was acceptable. I didn’t grow up that way but in this relationship I became lazy as well. This has led to a lot of arguments. To the point I lost respect for him years ago… [read more]

Left Out

Dear Miss U,
My SO and I have been together almost a year and here lately we haven’t been communicating as well as we should have been.
Every time I say anything he feels that I’m arguing with him. My biggest issues are that I need to be able to talk to him and hear his voice and it’s been a really long time since he’s called me. Last time I called him he didn’t answer and texted me right back saying he was busy. Well the busy excuse has been there for a while as well as other excuses going back to… [read more]

Nagging Thoughts

Dear Miss U,
I’m wanting more from my boyfriend. I’d really like to get married and start settling down. My family brought up a few concerns that I’m not sure if I should ignore or not. My family seems to think I should get a prenup. I hadn’t thought about it until they said it and I guess I’m not naive and I do know these days there is a higher risk of divorce. I’d like to think my SO isn’t like this, but I guess it is a worry these days. I’m not sure how to even bring it up as I’m worried he’ll be offended… [read more]

Striking A Healthy Balance

Dear Miss U,
At the very beginning, all him and I did was flirt back and forth until he finally asked me out over skype. For the past two months, our conversations lack depth and he overall seems uninterested in what I have to say. He never compliments me and never calls me “babe” or any of those nicknames that we used when we first started dating. He lives only a few hours away from me, and when I come and visit, he barely has the time for me, since all he does is play on his computer and watch youtube videos. I really don’t know what I should do, or how to even make it work… [read more]

Log Out

Dear Miss U,
My boyfriend and I have been in this long distance relationship for about two weeks now. I will be living in the US for one year, while he is still back home in South Africa. We have each other’s Facebook accounts on our phones. So about two days ago I noticed that he had searched his ex-girlfriend’s timeline. To be honest it killed me inside… [read more]

Of Silence & Treatment

Dear Miss U,
I have been dating this girl for 3 months now. I live in Illinois because of college. I just graduated last spring. My parents live in Michigan in the sane town as her. I actually met her at my graduation party because my parents are friends with her parents. We started talking and texting even after I came back to Illinois since I live here with my godparents because they live so close to the college I was attending. I am currently searching for a job with my degree and she is about to start college in Michigan… [read more]
