I've been with my boyfriend for almost six months now. Everything was going well until I met his mother. Since that day I can sense the tension when she and I are in the same room, I get the feeling that she does not like me. She acts completely normal, but I can feel the cold vibes.

You are sensing and feeling things, but are they for real? You are imagining things. Just as you are having your share of feelings, your guy's mother too is experiencing it. She may be getting cold vibes from you; she may have her set of fears and apprehensions after meeting you. If this is worrying you, speak to your guy about it. Put your fears to rest by being honest about how you feel. He can hopefully help in bridging your imaginary gap between you and his mom.
I like this guy at office. We are both 25 and we hit it off well from my first day at work. Last weekend we were out and we got physical. Ever since, he has started behaving weird with me. He does not talk to me or return my calls or answer my messages. He avoids me in the canteen and when work makes us come face-to-face, things get awkward. What should I do? That night he was okay, so what is it that is eating him now? I have tried to talk to him about it, but he is in no mood to listen.
It is strange that he prefers to keep mum, he owes you an explanation why he is behaving in this manner. Obviously there is something on his mind and he needs to tell you about it. Tell him that it is important that he clear the air and be honest with you. Whatever be the reason and whatever turn your relationship takes, it is vital that he talk to you. Accordingly then decide whether this man is worthy of your love or not.
