'My boyfriend is thin and I am fat...'

Dear Diana,
I'm 24 and my boyfriend is 23. We've been together for three years now. Our friends say that we make a cute couple, but I don't believe them. After all, I'm quite plump in appearance while he's very thin. I've been thinking of joining a weight loss programme, but he says he does not mind.

Dear Maneka,
If you want to get in shape, you should do it for no one, but yourself. Also, if your guy genuinely seems to be fine with your fatness, that means he loves you for who you are. You must not belittle your relationship by letting such issues come in the way. At the same time obesity could lead to health issues, so for your own good it is better to shed weight. The most integral key to a good relationship is communication. If your weight issue makes you uncomfortable as he is thin, talk to your guy about it.

Dear Diana,
I'm feeling guilty for what I did over the weekend. I was on an office-related trip to Jaipur and I ended up having a one-night stand with a woman from the New Delhi branch of our company. We had downed a couple of drinks and got carried away. Now that I'm back, I regret that night because I love my girlfriend a lot. As several of my office colleagues were there, there are all aware of it. I am sure my girlfriend will come to know about it.

Dear Tavesh,
You need to tell your girlfriend the truth before someone else does. She deserves to know what her guy has been up to behind her back. Hiding it from her may seem to be the easy way out, but it will cause pain when she eventually finds out because she just might. You have to be apologetic and realise that it is only her who matters in your life. Make amends and let her know that such a situation will not arise again. How she wants to react is her calling.

Diana will solve it!
