How do you express displeasure early on?

So, new guy. Contact between dates has been solely by email, and has been sporadic enough that it's driving me crazy. I'm not looking for a clingy relationship, but I can't deal with guessing whether or not he wants to see me again. I don't want to go out with him if the current situation would be come the status quo. How do I indicate displeasure that's it taking him 3 days to respond to email, and my desire that he act more excited about seeing me again, if in fact he feels that way? [more inside]

Movies about love and relationships that aren't like whirlwind romances?

I'm looking for movies about love that are not of the Titanic type. That is, they are about two people who learn to love each other over a long period of time. Maybe at first they don't particularly like each other - or they are just together by necessity, or they are just friends and never think about love. Any ideas? [more inside]

How to overcome a crush?

I have a close friend with whom I've recently become infatuated. However, he has a girlfriend, so I've held my tongue. I long to see him, but then it's painful when I do. How do I get over this? If I just stop seeing him, how to explain it? I assume a polite fiction ("I'm really busy...") would hurt and confuse him, but I certainly don't want to burden him with the truth.

Should I be creeped out by my dad's relationship?

Last year my dad and my step-mother divorced after 20 years of marriage. It was not an easy break-up, and my dad was pretty devastated in its wake. While it was wrenching for me to think of my dad being alone in his mid-sixties, I cheered myself knowing that my dad, being a very smart, handsome, together guy with a whole lot of awesome qualities, is definitely a catch and would almost certainly end up with someone terrific. I always pictured him being with some fun, free-spirited woman, probably a widow, someone who could match his intellect, stand up to his occasional bull-headedness, and win the hearts of his kids. He’s now with with someone, alright, but not at all what I’d imagined or hoped for. [more inside]
