'I have fallen for my landlord's daughter...'

I'm 26 and in love with my landlord’s daughter. She’s a divorcee and three years older than me

Dear Diana,
I'm 26 and in love with my landlord’s daughter. She’s a divorcee and three years older than me. Ever since I expressed my affections for her, she stopped talking to me. She has been avoiding me whenever I try to talk to her. I'm willing to marry her too. My landlord may act as a villain in our love story, but at least she should talk to me.

Dear Amit,
She may have been taken aback by your sudden expression of love. As she is a divorcee, she may be wary of another relationship. She might just not want to be in a relationship for a while and let the wounds heal. Also, you are not yet sure of her feelings. Moreover, if you incur the wrath of her father, you might find yourself on the streets overnight. So first get to know what is on her mind before planning a future with the landlord’s daughter.

Dear Diana,
I am 22 and my boyfriend is also of the same age. We study in the same college. I blindly trust him, but sometimes I feel that I am just his toy. He asks me for anything anytime and I give it to him. Now he wants a physical relationship. He says that if I don’t get physical with him, he will leave me. I don’t want to lose my virginity and at the same time I don’t want to lose him too.

Dear Lisa,
Your guy can’t force you into doing anything. You may have your reasons and he has to respect it. No one can force you to do things you don’t want to — or perhaps are scared of doing. Tell him exactly how you feel. If he really cares for you, he will respect your decision. Tell him you need time to think. If he does not respect your decision, he is not the man for you. You are better off without him. Whatever his reaction, you need to stick to your guns.
