Q: I really love my boyfriend, but last night I went to the bathroom to pee and caught him eating my vaseline. I just went back to bed and I haven’t talked to him since yesterday. I don’t want to break up, but I don’t know what I should do!

A: I think the only logical thing to do is talk to him about his vaseline addiction. Maybe it’s time he gets help.
Q: I’ve been eating a lot of orange stuff lately [carrots, oranges, circus peanuts] and I couldn’t help but notice that I’ve been changing color! I’ve heard that this can happen if you eat too much stuff of one color, but I didn’t expect it to happen to me. I just like how carrots taste. That being said, I don’t mind it! Being orange makes me feel special and different. Is that weird? And should I stop eating orange stuff?

Q: How am I supposed to know if my ideal relationship is realistic or if I’m expecting too much from girls I date?
A: I don’t really know how to answer this question. I think the “ideal” is always something imagined, and very rarely is it something real. That doesn’t mean you have to give up on it. When you find someone who makes you happy, you forget the ideal. Because you will have something real, which is more important and better than anything your mind could imagine.
Q: I’m still in love with the most beautiful girl I’ve ever met. We broke up over a year ago and she’s with a boy at the moment and there have been so many times where I’ve been convinced I’m totally over her but I’ve come to realise that there’s always going to be a part of me that loves her and that’s okay. I don’t think I mean that much to her at all anymore but she stills gives me butterflies. She’s so beautiful. What do I do?
A: Honestly, I think the only thing you can do is tell her. Is be honest with her. Even if she doesn’t love you back. Sometimes humans are only honest with other humans in order to get a certain reaction out of them. Stop worrying that she won’t love you back. Be honest with her and let whatever will happen, happen. You deserve so much more than this. You owe it to yourself to not be silent about your feelings.
