Q: The holidays are here and once again I'm dreading them. My husband's parents are divorced and each insists we visit them on Christmas. My parents are together and, of course, they insist we come to dinner so they can enjoy their grandchildren. My husband's brother always hold a big Christmas Eve bash at his house, which is two hours away, and any suggestion that we skip his party so we have time to prepare our own house for the holidays is viewed as an insult. My husband and I both work and all this makes this time of year a nightmare. We usually end up fighting and if we cut any visits short our families lay a guilt trip on us. Help!

POLL: What should she do?
15% (259) Put her foot down. Cut some or all of this stuff from the agenda!
3% (61) Grin and Bear it. 'Tis the Season to be Miserable
1% (31) Hubby wants to go? Let him. Get that egg nog from the fridge and chill to "The Year Without a Santa Claus"
78% (1281) Explain that the kids' Christmas comes first. Making the adults happy is going to have to be a little earlier or later on the calendar.

POLL: He won't put the moves on

Friday, December 09, 2011 - 12:00 AM

Q: I've been dating a guy for about four months. I feel really strongly for him, and possibly love him. He is very laid back and an introvert. He doesn't show much affection unless I initiate it. I prefer to be physically intimate every time we see each other. Recently things have changed. He started saying that he is tired or not in the mood, when before all I had to do was kiss him and touch his waist to get him in the mood. I feel like he is not as attracted to me or there is some sort of problem with his lack of showing affection. I told him I don't want to feel like I have to coerce my boyfriend to sleep with me - he should be making the moves. He said that sometimes he just wants to relax and snuggle. We didn't really resolve anything other than that he said maybe he needs to be more in touch with my feelings. Should I be nervous?

POLL: What should she do?
29% (399) Leave him. He's not into you.
29% (404) Learn to read his moods.
22% (312) Give him space and time.
10% (146) Jump his bones.
7% (102) Set a schedule for sex so no one has to initiate.
