Morally torn.

Dilemma: I plan to break up with my boyfriend but we live together. Our lease is up at the end of May. I know that the right thing to do would be to tell him now so he has time to find an apartment (I've started looking for one). What is the right thing to do here? [more inside]

In love with best friend, need a break

What is the kindest way to have "the talk" about needing a break from a friendship? Text, phone, IM, email, or face to face? The reason I need this break is because I am in love with him but he's not over his ex, and I've recently realized all this, and discovered it's too painful to keep hearing about her. We've been sleeping together, too, and I thought I would be able to keep it casual but I was wrong. [more inside]

Break-up Remorse: Reconciliation?

Abandon ship, once and for all, or fight for what I have?

Seven months ago I cheated on my partner. Six months ago I came clean to him. Three months ago we broke up. This past week we have begun to spend some time together, and I feel like we both reached a breakthrough last night. Am I crazy to have this renewed faith in/willingness to work for our love?

Any hope out there?

About a decade ago, I stubbed my big toe so badly that I clearly broke it. My crappy University Health Services refused to x-ray it, insisting that it was just a normal stub. I have since had severe pain every step I take, I can't really bend it very well, it sits differently than the other toe, and I am incapable of wearing heels or doing various athletic activities that I am dying to do, or even wearing most flat shoes, or taking long walks. I fantasize about it being broken again and then set correctly, but I have no idea if this is something that is done. What do doctors tend to do in this kind of situation, so I have some idea before trying to arrange a way to see someone? [more inside]

The only thing harder than breaking up

Working with an ex. We just got out of each other's space. Now our only point of interaction is work. It is awkward and uncomfortable, not just because of the obvious but also because it seems he's going out of his way to be unpleasant. The job is great, the pay is amazing, and the company is awesome. I've been there for a year. He's been there for a year and three months. Quitting is not an option for either of us. [more inside]

Don't Know how to ease my mom's burden

I feel bad giving tough love to my mom when she is feeling depressed about breaking up with her asshole boyfriend. I don't know how to make her situation better for her, or to ease her pain. All I can do is lend an ear but its annoying that my privacy is invaded constantly because shes totally out of it. I never had a private moment to myself all my life, that's a different story. How can I make light of the situation without losing my own sanity?
