Help me deal with my mentally ill father, who I still need to talk to.

How should I go about handling my (very) mentally ill father who goes through (primarily) emotionally/psychologically abusive phases with anyone he holds a relationship with? Completely cutting off contact is probably not a solution for a few reasons. [more inside]

Emotional intelligence and ability to be in a relationship

My bf calls me cold. I am 29 and he is 34. The only other time this has happened to me was when I was a child. My grandmother and aunt (they raised me) used the same word to describe me. I generally consider myself an emotional person. Not touchy feely or especially warm. But, at any given moment I can laugh about anything or cry about something. I can intuit other peoples moods easily. I am definitely an introvert and would hardly ever choose to spend time with other people if I can be alone. I love to be alone. These days my relationship with my family is pretty good. I see them every couple of weeks. I don’t have friends and I am not social but I do get along with people without any problems. [more inside]

How do we get our realtor to talk?

In January we moved across the country and put our house on the market. Our realtor is a friend of the family. I had misgivings about using a friend, but, he has helped us a lot in the last few years and I felt we should go with him. Since January he has contacted us twice, once to tell us about an open house and another time to ask a few questions from potential buyers. I email him about once a month and usually have to wait 2 - 3 days for a response. Often the response does not address our questions. Instead we get a brief personal greeting followed by what feels like a form response. I want to address his lack of communication, but, as this is the first time I've sold a house, I don't know what is reasonable to expect from a realtor. What level of communication is reasonable to expect given our location/situation?

Can Mr. Emotional and Ms. Practical learn to get along?

How does a very logical person deal effectively with someone who makes all their decisions on an emotional basis? I’m asking for the benefit of a friend who is a having a terrible time with her marriage, but I’ve also never had any success myself in dealing with people who make all their decisions on an emotional basis. I get very frustrated when someone insists on making the emotional choice even though it makes no practical sense, and especially when they won’t even take responsibility for the consequences of doing so. If any of you have had success in this type of interaction, I’d love to hear about it. [more inside]
