POLL: Dock blocked?

FREE Bree DVD + 50% Off A reader writes... Q: I think my wife of 32 years had been cheating on me when she travels on business. I was told by a few friends to discuss my suspicions with her, but every time I bring it up, she denies it. Recently, while at dinner with friends, she mentioned that a year ago she had lunch with a male coworker on his yacht, just the two of them during their lunch break. When I asked her about it later, she said it was just an innocent lunch meeting, that the man wanted to show off his new boat. His boat is about 45 minutes from their work. I think that they dined on each other while on the boat. Isn’t it inappropriate for a married woman to be alone with a single man on his boat, house or any enclosure? Even if everything was innocent? I still love her, but I no longer trust her.

A reader writes... I just recently started dating a new guy. We get along great, but I caught him in a lie about his age. I'm OK with the age difference, but it bothers me that he'd lie about it. Should I bring it up with him?

12% (91) Nah... it's not that big of a deal.
 
87% (660) Sure. If it bugs you, talk to him about it.

POLL: I'm with the band. (But who's the band with?)

Friday, June 10, 2011 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... Q: I’ve been seeing this guy for a while and am wondering if I should give up on him. The thing is I really like him but he refuses to settle down and I am so ready. I know he cares about me but he’s always out doing his thing. It’s hard for me to know what he’s up to because he plays drums in a band, so he’s always off in some club. I try to go sometimes to watch him play, instead of listening to the music, I find myself watching the other girls in the club and trying to figure which one is his type than me. I know it’s crazy but I can’t stop myself.
POLL: What should she do?
 
7% (103) Trust your instincts. If you think he's got a wandering eye, chances are he's wandering.
 
23% (327) Grow up and get a little self-esteem.
 
67% (938) It's not about self-esteem or wandering eyes. It's about settling down -- which is something that *he* isn't about.
 
1% (27) Be patient. He'll come around.
