Dear Juliette,

My boyfriend told me that he thinks I’m fat. I don’t look like a super model but I think I look good. I’m in my right height and weight range. Other than that he is a great guy. How can I get him to understand that real women don’t look like underwear models?

Dear Looking Good,

You can’t make him understand. The guy is a pig. Dump him.

Dear Juliette,

I thought I’d found the love of my life. She is beautiful, funny, smart, and my dogs love her. Then she turned me into a Werewolf. I had no idea she was a Werewolf. I had no idea that Werewolves were real. I broke up with her, but now what? I’m having panic attacks. What should I do.

~ Afraid of the Moon

 

Dear Moon,

What a bitch. I am so sorry to hear about your situation. Send me a private message and I’ll make sure you get a list of resources for folks in your situation. Make sure you include your phone number so I can have someone call you and get you on the right path with the right Werewolves. Wishing you the best.

Dear Juliette,

My boyfriend and I used to have a good thing going, that is until his sister moved in with him. Now he brings her along on all of our dates. She talks non-stop while he just sits and smiles like an idiot. At his house she is always baking or doing some craft project while he dotes on her. Her boyfriend also lives with them, so it isn’t like she isn’t getting any attention. She is super critical of everything I do. But the worst is that my boyfriend never says a word. He just sits there with a weird stupid smile on his face and nods at everything she says. It is creepy. I’ve put down my foot several time and said I want some alone time with him, but she is ALWAYS there. Sometimes I feel like the only reason he has me around is for sex. It is like seeing a married man.

~ Second Place

 

Dear Second Place,

Dump the chump. If he doesn’t have the balls to see what is going on you don’t need him in your life. You can do better. Find someone with a normal sister.

Dear Juliette,

My boyfriend called me a whore because I wouldn’t drive a hundred miles through a snow storm to see him, so I broke up with him. Now he is heart-broken. His friends keep calling me about it. They’re worried about him. What should I do?

~ Not a Whore

 

Dear NAW,

What an asshole. He doesn’t deserve you. Forget about him.

Dear Juliette,

I’ve been accepted into a great university 200 miles away. I also have an offer for a part-time job in my field. My girlfriend keeps pressuring me to stay with her in our hometown. She wants to get married and says I can go to the local college, or get a job with her uncle. She keeps telling me that I’ll be wasting my time and that I’ll be unhappy so far away from home. She keeps saying she knows me best. We’ve been together since we were fourteen and we’re best friends. I’m a senior in high school. Should I give up my dreams or stay with my girlfriend.

~ Confused

 

Dear Confused,

Dump her. Dump her hard and FAST. Don’t wait until the Senior Ball. Don’t wait until she gets pregnant on purpose. Don’t listen to anything she says. DUMP HER. You’re too young to be saddled with a controlling girl who has no idea who you really are. Go to the university. Take the job. Get your degree. Follow your dream. Be happy.

~ Juliette

Dear Juliette,

My girlfriend is successful, beautiful and a lot of fun. I want a family. She recently said she never wants kids. She said her job is her baby. We’ve traveled the world together and experienced so many great times together, but I want children.  I can’t imagine giving up my life with her, but how do I convince her that family life would be exciting too.

~ Guy 

 

Dear Guy,

You had fun, but it is time to move on. If you want a family then break it off. It isn’t fair for you to give up on your dreams for somebody else. The fact that she dropped the no-children bomb on you after three years is dishonest to say the least. It is time to cut your losses and move on.

~ Juliette

Dear Juliette,

I’m thirty years old and recently moved in with my boyfriend. As soon as I moved in he started to make anti-marriage remarks. Then he said that if I ever get pregnant that he expects me to have an abortion. I’m pro-choice, but what he said really hurt. We have a wonderful group of friends and have a lot of fun but I’m having second thoughts about this Peter Pan I’m living with.

~ Not Tinker Bell

 

Dear Not Tinker Bell,

Move out and move on. The guy sounds like a first class jerk. Nobody deserves such asshole comments especially by someone they think they love. Dump him and do it fast.

~ Juliette

Alright now that everyone is insanely depressed…

You deserve a love that comes with respect. If there is no respect then move on. Be with someone who believes in your dreams and supports them.

  1. Great advice to all, and advice I have given to many now ex-friends. Interestingly enough, I later heard from the few ex-friends who finally came to their senses, and lived to tell about it, that they should have listened to me from the beginning. I don’t know how many people I’ve told to dump someone after they were complaining about a major problem with a boyfriend or girlfriend, but acted like it wasn’t serious. There are some signs that are so obvious to outsiders, and while people sense there is something wrong enough to tell an outsider about the problem, they rarely want to hear the relatively easy solution to the problem — “dump ’em!”

      • One big misconception both young men and young women have are that women think they can change men or that men will change; and men think women will never change. I’ve known women who treat trying to change men like it’s a challenging hobby at which they continually fail. And I know a lot of mystified men who don’t understand what happened.
