Do I hang in there and hope my porn-addicted boyfriend changes?

  • Do I hang in there and hope my porn-addicted boyfriend changes?

    By on February 22, 2015

    I’ve been dating a guy for 11 months now who’s always been very open and honest with me about his porn watching habits. Basically, he’s been watching/masturbating to porn since he was in middle school (we’re now 30). In the beginning I thought it was great that he was honest and believed he was an occasional porn user. Now our relationship’s grown I’m realising he’s addicted. He watches 4-5 days a week, 1-4 hours throughout the day when he is away from me (we live in separate cities … about 2 hours away). He says he does it when he’s bored or stressed...

    THE MAMA FILES: An epic, headache-fuelled whinge ahead.

    By on February 21, 2015

    So Mr Chick goes back to work on Monday. For months he’s been tag-teaming it with me and as of Monday it’s going to be all me, all day. Probably without the mini-morning sleep in I’ve come to rely on like a crack fix, but if he has to be in an office somewhere by 9am I can’t see that happening from now on. I don’t mind telling you that this has me pretty much out of my mind with terror. I’m still popping iron pills like they’re going out of style and trying to exercise to get some energy (ha)...

  • We’re finally together but I’m scared he’ll break my heart

    By on February 19, 2015

    I have had a crush on a guy (let’s call him Ted) for years. We knew each other in primary school and ended up at the same college on the same course and my crush erupted into real feelings – but I always assumed it was one-way and never told him. After college I decided I had to move on and try to meet other people and I did have a boyfriend for about four months. I thought he was the ‘one’ but he ended up losing his feelings for me and breaking it off and although I was sad, it...

    THE MAMA FILES: Valentine’s Day for new parents.

    By on February 13, 2015

    It’ll be no surprise to other new parents out there that having a baby can be like chucking a bomb into your cosy, stable, no-hassle relationship. Suddenly everything you used to do without a second thought is basically impossible, like going out for a cocktail, or sleeping in or doing the no pants dance (unless you can rope in the parentals or are good at military-style planning). At the same time, you’ll find that all conversations end with one of you saying, ‘Um, sorry, but I just forgot what we were talking about’ and the other replying, ‘Don’t look at...

  • Do I go back to Spain with my boyfriend or end it?

    Do I go back to Spain with my boyfriend or end it?

    By on February 11, 2015

    I’m an English girl who just came across your website; hope you can help. I met and fell in love with my Spanish partner three years ago while I was teaching in Spain. I was dying to go back home at that point because I was unhappy and missing everyone and my partner decided to sacrifice it all and go back to the UK with me. He’s been here close to two years now and he’s not coping (much in the same way I wasn’t in Spain).  I don’t want to lose such a great man and he doesn’t want to...
