'He wants sex, nothing serious; but I really like him'

Should I date someone if he says he is only in it for sex? He says he's not interested in a serious relationship, but I really like him so I'm considering going ahead. What do I do?

It's your life, your body, your right to find pleasure if you want it. If your feelings get hurt in the bargain, and it sounds as if they will, make sure you get into this with your eyes wide open.

Some of my friends want me to date a woman who they think is perfect for me. They have told me about her often, and say that we would make a great couple. The thing is, I have met this woman a couple of times when we have gone out as a group, and have never found anything even remotely interesting about her. I have tried chatting with her a few times and didn't even get the feeling she was particularly interested in spending time with me. I don't think I want to go on a date with her just because my friends want me to, but I also don't want to miss out on a potentially great relationship if she really is perfect for me the way my friends think she is. Should I give it a chance?

Your friends may have all kinds of ideas about who may be perfect for you, but it really does boil down to how you feel about this person, and vice versa. If you haven't liked spending time with her before, but think you should give it a chance, do so by all means, but do keep in mind the possibility that she may not be interested at all, despite what your friends believe. At the end of the day, a relationship is still between two people, not their immediate circles of friends. Ask her out and try having a conversation. If you don't feel a thing and she isn't interested, ask your friends to stop playing the role of matchmakers.
