POLL: Where there's smoke there's fire...

Friday, January 13, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Q.: There's a lady at work that I'm attracted to. We're both single, and there's no office policy prohibiting relationships between co-workers. The problem is that she's a smoker and I'm a militant non-smoker. I can't help it, but I'm attracted to her. Should I try to date her and ask her to stop smoking?

POLL: Should this non-smoker try to date the smoking hot woman?
 
53% (860) No. Trying to change a person at the very beginning of a relationship is a bad idea. You have plenty of time for that after you're married.
 
31% (502) Maybe. Date her and find out. Maybe she just smokes after sex.
 
15% (248) Yes! People quit smoking all the time. Maybe she's never had a good reason to quit.

POLL: Can't spell BOFF without BFF

Friday, January 06, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Q: I am getting a divorce and finding that I'm in love with my best friend. It seems that the two are related but they are not. I was already at the end of my marital rope when I discovered that my bff was the man of my dreams. He has been my best friend since 1986-7 and is someone that I talk to about everything. He has never interfered in my marriage and I never interrupted his relationships. We were the epitome of a platonic male/female friendship. Some of my friends say I should wait and get myself together first. My close friends say to get my man! If I could turn off my feelings for BFF, then I would so that we can get through this divorce. He has been part of my routine in life for the last quarter century and I am only 39. So what do I do now? I don't want to rebound. I don't want to ruin my longest friendship ever. I don't want to be stuck in something that is a mistake.

POLL: What should she do?
 
39% (648) Whoa! Hold your horses! If he's been you're BFF since the 80s, he'll still be around in another year.
 
21% (343) Slow down. You shouldn't date this guy until your divorce is final -- and then wait a little longer.
 
3% (54) Aw, heck! Go for it. This guy sounds like your soulmate.
 
1% (18) Go ahead and try it out with the BFF, but keep you other options open, too.
 
34% (566) You'd better find out how HE feels about all this first.
