Introducing Dr Love, who solves your relationship riddles in a confusing digital age
I met someone on Facebook a few months ago, and we began chatting. He seems like a nice guy, is well educated and comes from a decent family. We chat a lot, almost daily, and he wants to meet me at a resort and spend a whole day together. My friends tell me this is a bad idea, because they say he has no common friends with me or any of them. I have begun to trust him though. Should I go?
You should listen to your friends. And if you don't want to, you should take a few of them with you if you decide to meet this man. Anyone can create a Facebook profile, so think about that for a while.
I have been dating someone for two years now, and things are going very well. We are thinking about taking our relationship to the next level, and are both excited about this. The problem is my past. I had sex with a prostitute on a holiday abroad a few years ago, which my girlfriend doesn't know about. She knows about my previous relationships, but if she ever finds out about this, she may lose all respect for me forever. At the same time, I don't want to hide this from her because I believe we should be honest with each other and love each other no matter what. Should I tell her about this?
I respect your desire to be open and honest, and think you should be comfortable enough to tell her anything you want to about yourself if you want to spend the rest of your life with her. I can't predict how she will react, of course, but, if she takes it in the right spirit and appreciates your openness, it sets a strong foundation for the future of your relationship. What you choose to tell her is up to you. This happened before she was part of your life, which is what ought to matter.
