How does a decent, caring but impotent and shy guy ever find a girlfriend?

I am a 38-year-old man who has many good qualities (I hope so at least) but two drawbacks which understandably be dealbreakers for most women - I am impotent and I have a small penis (around 4 inches on the rare occasions it is erect), so even if my impotence got treated I am not sure I could satisfy a women. On the other hand, I have heard that it's possible to have satisfactory sex life with a 3 inch penis, but have no idea how that can be. So basically I am what would be a figure of ridicule for many other men, and not exactly a strong candidate to be a boyfriend for most women either. However I know some women while still heterosexual may not want a sexual partner e.g. they may be celibate for whatever reason. And there may even be women who will overlook a sex life without penetrative sex for the right person. I have just come out of a four-year relationship which had lots of affection and companionship but not strong feelings of passion and obviously no sex, but I eventually want another relationship again and believe I have a lot of love to give the right person. How can I find her? [more inside]

How to end a dysfunctional relationship without being a total jerk?

I have been in what I think is a co-dependant relationship for over four years, and things have been hard recently for me to recover from mental illness and start working again. I think we are simply stuck in a rut now, I also feel more like a good friend or roommate rather than a romantic partner (that's probably at least 50% my fault though as I have low libido anyway) and it's best we are apart. But this woman has become incredibly dependant on me, and since I am the wimpy "avoid confrontation at all costs" type I have kept quiet about my problems. How can I gracefully leave without totally pulling the rug from under her and without her hating me and all men forever? [more inside]

Can our relationship survive living apart after living together?

My boyfriend of almost 3 years and I have been living together for a year and a half. About a year ago he decided he wanted to start making his own music, something he never had the chance to do earlier in his life. He's also a very successful grad student in a PHD program, so he thinks that before he graduates is the only time he will be able to devote enough time to making music while still being a good student. And now he's telling me that the only way he can really give this a shot is for us to not live together for a while so he can have some "space" to really discover himself and focus on his music whenever he's not in school. He says he wants to work on it so much that he would seem neglectful if we lived together. [more inside]

Help me overthink sex and romance.

What are some good books/essays/articles about human sexuality, sexual and romantic relationships, and sexual or otherwise affection-entangled activity - with an emphasis on the theoretical? I'm thinking more along the lines of Judith Butler than The Joy of Sex - so suggestions should be at least vaguely academic. (Things like Leaves of Grass count as vaguely academic). [more inside]

Love and Money

My husband of five months and I have different attitudes towards money. He’s more money conscious that I am, at least, that’s what he calls it. I think of his “money-consciousness” as a cross between minor cheapness and money obsession. I am right now at a crossroads in the relationship and I don’t know how to solve it or whether I should even continue it. [more inside]

Can I be friends with husband's team's spouses?

Is it possible for the wife of a CEO (me) to be good friends with the wives of my husband's management team spouses? We socialize a few times per year and I always sort of feel guarded with them. I like many of them a lot and would like them as friends. Part of me sees it as not a good idea though? Would it compromise my husbands relationships at work? Might there be trust and confidentiality issues? Maybe it is just about how close I get to them? Keeping boundaries as far as what we talk about? Staying away from talk about the company? Would I be able to share important things going on in my life or will it become company gossip---and spread like wildfire? Anyone here have experience with this?

Not ready to marry

This question isn't a big deal--but I thought I'd put it out there in the spirit of "query of the hivemind." My girlfriend and I just broke it off, and it was with mutual interest that we did so. I moved out after living together for about 5 months, got my own place, and it was hard for her, but less hard for me. [more inside]

Should I tell my ex-girlfriend that the reason I broke up with her was because I had feelings for someone else?

I recently broke up with my girlfriend. The reason I ended it was because I realised that I had been gradually developing strong feelings for one of her close friends (and it’s very possible that her friend had feelings for me). My feelings for her friend were not going away and this was causing me a lot of hurt. I felt that the right thing to do was to break up and walk away from the whole situation. Will the truth allow my ex to move on or will it just upset her unnecessarily? [more inside]
