Dr. LoveMy girlfriend uses my photograph as her WhatsApp display picture even though I am not comfortable with it. I have asked her to remove it, but she says it's her right to post whatever she chooses to. What do I do?

I don't understand why this is a problem. If the photograph isn't demeaning you in any way, and is just an expression of her love for you, is it so bad? If it still upsets you though, she ought to take your feelings into consideration, because it is your photograph after all. I think you should both discuss this like adults, instead of squabbling like children.

I want a girlfriend who listens to everything I say, not because I'm male but because I believe I have seen enough of life to have an opinion that matters. I have been with two girls in my life, and both those relationships ended because they told me I was pushy and not very accommodating. I tried explaining my motives, but they didn't even give me a chance. I think I am just misunderstood. I don't want to force anyone to do anything, but I want someone in my life to take what I say seriously because I am thinking about their well-being as well. I am not a selfish person who only wants things done in a particular way to please myself, but I think women simply get the wrong idea. What am I doing wrong and how do I correct this misconception? It's affecting my ability to date, which is sad.

You should listen to what these women are saying, because their message is clearly not getting through to you. Learn from your mistakes and change while there is time, because being misunderstood is not the same as being deluded about who you are. If you want everyone to follow your advice because you have some delusion about knowing more about life than they do, it may be better for the world if you stay single.
