Ask The Guy’s Guy: Should I Follow My Boyfriend To Where His Job Is?

Cupid's Pulse Article: Ask The Guy’s Guy: Should I Follow My Boyfriend To Where His Job Is?
By Robert Manni 
Question from Kaylee M: “My boyfriend and I have been together for a while now, and we both know we’re going to end up together for a while. But, he might have to take a job that’s 6 hours from my home, and that might be an issue for me. I’m very close to my family and not sure if this is a move I want to do. What should I do?”

Boyfriends moving away, should you go with him?

Hi Kaylee:
You have a lot of variables to consider before making a decision about this move. It’s great that you have a strong bond with your boyfriend, that he has a great opportunity, and he wants you to join him. Now it’s time to ask yourself questions. What are the opportunities for you if you join him? Do you have a career where you currently live? If so, can you get a transfer to the new locale or easily find a similar job there? Have you visited this location? Did you like it, and could you see yourself living there? Do you know anyone there? How difficult would it be to visit your family if you move?  Six hours by car is substantial, but it’s not like moving across the country. You mentioned seeing yourself together with your boyfriend “for a while”. How long is a while? Is it long enough to pick up and move your life, career, and away from your family? Only you know the answers to what’s in your heart and what his intentions are.

I’m not trying to throw water on what could be a great opportunity for both of you. I’m suggesting you consider how all the variables of this move will impact you and your life, friends, and family connections. I’m also wondering what your boyfriend has to say about this opportunity as it relates to you. After all, you will be making a sacrifice since he already has a job set up. Was this opportunity a surprise or something he has been working towards? As you can see, there is a lot for you to consider prior to making a decision. You may discover that it can turn out great for both of you. Or not. Only you can get the answers you need to make a wise decision. After all, your number one priority and consideration is to yourself. Good luck!

Relationship Advice: Can You Handle Sex Without Love?

Posted In: Love, Relationship Advice Articles
Cupid's Pulse Article: Relationship Advice: Can You Handle Sex Without Love?
Photo: conrado / Bigstock.com

By Dr. Jane Greer

As women strive for equality, they are exercising their freedom of sexual expression more and more, which for many might mean a choice to have casual sex. However, with that freedom and choice comes great responsibility, and the important task of taking care of your emotional self and well-being. That is possible only once you know what you want and can tolerate, and, when it comes right down to it, if you can handle sex without love. Diane Von Furstenberg spoke about her fling with Richard Gere, saying it was just a “f**k,” which is how she wanted it to be. While it is more common for men to have sex and keep it just about the physical connection, with few or no feelings of intimacy involved, women regularly struggle with separating the two. Often emotions come into play despite their best intentions, since so often women feel most vulnerable when they are in intimate situations and often literally are and symbolically feel naked. So how can you know if you can handle a fling with no strings attached?

With this relationship advice, learn if you can handle a fling without love.

Relationship Advice: Should You Elope?

Carefully considering marriage. Photo: photobac / Bigstock.com

By Dr. Jane Greer

Planning a wedding can be exciting, but it can also be an enormous undertaking once you become immersed in all the details. From choosing a maid of honor and whatever number of bridesmaids you have agreed upon (and trying not to offend anyone with your choices), to the flowers and the cake, not to mention the seating arrangements, it can be a lot to deal with. That’s why, in the midst of it all, people often begin to wonder if they should elope. For some, it is just a joke, something to say when all they really want to do is get a break from thinking about the dress and the photographer and where Aunt Fran is going to sit. For others it can be the right choice. Actress Gina Rodriguez said she almost married her fiance Joe LoCicero after this year’s Golden Globes, gushing about getting caught up in the excitement and the beauty of the dress she had on, and saying it could have happened that night if she hadn’t had to work the next day.

In this relationship advice, find out if eloping is the right choice for you.

Movie Review: Night School

Posted In: Love, Movies


By Lauren Burczyk

If you’re looking for a fresh, witty comedy, then you’re in luck! Night School is the perfect movie to watch when you’re looking for a “pick me up.” This fun, original flick stars Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish. Teddy, played by Hart, is a high school dropout desperate for a good job so that he can continue to impress his fiancée, an architect, who is unaware of his actual situation. His good friend promises him a position as a financial analyst if he goes back to school and completes his GED. The fun starts when Teddy meets his night school teacher, Carrie, played by Haddish, who’s determined to get Teddy to pass his exam. Teddy finds out that keeping night school a secret from his fiancée is much harder than he could have imagined. Read Cupid’s movie review to find out just how funny this film is!

Cupid's Pulse Article: Ask The Guy’s Guy: How Do I Get Through The Holiday Season Being Single?

By Robert Manni

Question from Meghan G from Babylon, NY: “It’s hard being single during the holidays, what are some tips to help me get through being single? Or how can I find someone during this time?”

This is a great question, Meghan. With all the hustle and bustle and last minute shopping during this time of year, it’s easy to forget the true meaning of the holidays. Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, I think we can agree that this is a time for giving, gratitude, and love. Granted, this can be tough when you’re single and see couples holding hands(some people still do that) walking along the bright and colorfully lit city streets.
Related LinkAsk The Guy’s Guy: If He Isn’t Ready To Date, What Should I Do?
Do your best to be grateful for what you have, especially if you are in good health. Then focus on your friends and loved ones. I believe that when we maintain a selfless mindset, good things come our way. Of course, there are no guarantees that you’ll wake up on Christmas morning and find Mr. Right perched under your tree, but it’s a good start for shifting your thoughts into a love-based mindset. I found find that love comes our way when our heart is open. Use the holiday season to practice making room in your heart for others, including a new partner. Finding love can often be that simple, and it has nothing to do with the time of year.
Related Link: Ask The Guy’s Guy: How to Win a First Date After Meeting Online
Cherish your family and friends and be social. Attend parties you’re invited to and spread the love you have in your heart. I believe when we radiate love, we receive love in return. And remember to be kind. What can be the most wonderful time of the year for many can also be a very stressful time for others less fortunate.
 
Happy holidays and good luck!

Happy couple at Christmas. Photo: Kzenon / Bigstock.com

By Megan Weks

We are afraid to say we want something real. We ease into the relationship secretly hoping it will turn into something of substance. We keep quiet. We don’t want to “scare him away” by getting serious all of a sudden. Maybe you tried that before and nothing changed. Maybe you still went along with it trying to be “cool” and telling yourself, “I can handle it.” Meanwhile, you’re busy quietly nursing a dull heartache behind the scenes. You weren’t even dating but it’s fading away. You know it’s ending. You try to reignite it. You were hoping for more. He wasn’t even your boyfriend. Why does this hurt so badly? The answer may surprise you.
