Dr. LoveWhat can I do to make sure my boyfriend doesn't chat with other women when I am not around? He sometimes mentions friends of his I don't even know, which bothers me, because I have no way of knowing what he discusses with them.

You sound like a female version of so many men who want to control who the women in their lives talk to. He is entitled to have friends and have conversations with them that aren't really your business. All you need to work on is trusting him more.

I dated a girl for a few months, and ended it because she couldn't stop talking about her ex-boyfriend. Whenever we went out, she would refer to him constantly, tell me about their relationship, and even talk about what they discussed when they were at the same restaurant or pub that I had taken her to. I kept telling her that I wasn't interested, but she said she wanted to talk about him because she didn't want a relationship where she couldn't talk about her past. She simply didn't understand that I didn't care. It's been two months since we broke up, and she sent me a message on Facebook last night apologising for her behaviour and saying she finally realised it was too much for me. She wants us to give this another chance. Should I risk going out with her again?

It's entirely up to you. If this was all that prevented the two of you from making it work the last time, and she says she recognises that it was a mistake, all you need to evaluate is whether or not you would like to be a part of her life again. The fact that she wants to give it another chance doesn't mean you have to jump into it either. You can simply go out a few times and see if she really has changed and has managed to leave all references to her ex-boyfriend behind.
