'I don't like my guy's female buddy...'

Dear Diana,
I am having major issues with my guy. I feel he is with me just for the heck of it. He does not consider me as an equal partner. Also, I don't like his childhood female friend. From her body language, it's evident that she has a thing for him — which he seems to overlook. He loves to spend time with her and his gang of pals. I'm caught in between them.

Dear Harneeti,
He is open about his friendship with his female childhood buddy because he has nothing to hide. If there was something on, he would not openly bond with her in front of you. You seem to be in an agitated state as you feel he is not giving you attention. But what has stopped you from talking it over with him? By being irritable and angry, you are only further distancing yourself from him. He is perhaps spending more time with his pals because of your behaviour. Tell him how you feel and gauge his reaction. Only then will you realise whether he is interested in you or not.

Dear Diana,
I'm 28 and had been suffering from severe hair loss. I never step outside without wearing a cap. I don't socialise much and dread talking to girls. I even go to work dressed in formals and wearing a cap. Though my colleagues know that I am going bald, none at my workplace have seen me without a cap. I feel now no one will want to marry me. I have started shaving my head as only patches of hair are left now.

Dear Wilson,
There are multitudes of guys who go bald, but they do get married. There are several guys who have hair, but prefer to shave it off. You may lack self-confidence because of your baldness, but over time you will overcome it. There are so many guys who lose hair due to hereditary reasons at a young age. So you are not the
only one.

Diana will solve it!
