I try to do everything for my bf but he doesn't do a whole lot for me back. I like doing things but a little return once in awhile would be nice. How do I get him to do stuff for me without me having to ask?

You need to have a talk with him and express what you need. You can also ask him why he doesn't do anything. It's important that you get your needs met if the relationship is going to work.

My first cousin is having a destination wedding. We can't afford to go but she is giving me shit about not coming. What do I say?

You tell her simply that you can't afford it. It's the truth. She needs to know that there are also others that probably can't come because they can't afford it. And don't feel guilty. You are doing the right thing if you can't go.

I've loaned my gf thousands of dollars. She always says she'll pay it back but he hasn't repaid a dime for more than 2 years. I love her but ... How do I handle this?

You need to sit down with her and have a serious talk. You need to work out a payment plan. She needs to take responsibility. You also may want to reevaluate your relationship.

My parents can't afford to pay for my wedding. My uncle has volunteered to step in. The problem is that his business is a bit on the shady side (I don't think it's illegal but IDK). Should I accept his offer?

If you don't know, why ask. Give him the benefit of the doubt. Just be a gracious receiver and enjoy your day. It may be that your definition of "shady" isn't all that shady.

My gf has been diagnosed bipolar. She's on meds and takes them regularly. I'm worried about getting married and having children. How do others handle something like this?

People should be open with each other about whatever they have if they are planning to have a family because of genetics. Discuss all of this with a medical doctor and a therapist.

My gf's bff won't shut up. She talks over everyone and interrupts constantly. Whenever I try to say something to my gf she goes ape shit on me. WTF? Now what? I don't want to break up over this idiot.

Tell her you want to have a serious talk and ask that she please listen to you before reacting. Present facts, not feelings. And listen to what she says, as well. If she continues to choose her bestie over you, you have a decision to make.

My mother is having a fit about me dating this guy because he's from a different culture. I'm trying to be patient but I'm getting frustrated. Any advice you can give would be appreciated.

The best advice would be to talk with others of your culture who have experienced the same thing. Unfortunately, many parents place their children in a situation where the children are being asked to choose between family and relationships. It's too bad they don't realize what they're doing.

We've been to a couples' therapist but my bf says he's tired of going. Our problems are still not straightened out. How can I convince him to keep going? I think it's helping.

Explain exactly what you just said, but leave with love. Tell him you love him, and you want it to work, but the problems have to be addressed if it's going to work.

I'm not rich. This girl I go out with doesn't know what I make. The problem is she usually orders the most expensive thing on the menu. Besides that she's great. What do I do about that? I really like her but is she a gold digger?

I think you have to be honest about your finances. If you lose her, you'll know she really is a princess or gold digger. Tell her your situation. That's the best way forward.
