No, we will not relax.

Previously. We have been dating for a total of two and a half months. He dropped the L-word after six weeks. Last night he saw a picture of an ex I had framed in my room and flipped his shit. [more inside]

How do I deal with motormouths?

I think I am a decent conversationalist and try to be a good listener. Sometimes I will run into someone who consistently talks up a blue streak, making it hard to get a word in edgewise. And even when I can, I'm often more inclined to ask questions than to speak in rapid-fire paragraphs of my own. The problem is that this doesn't give the other person much of a feeling for my own personality and ideas. In first-date or professional settings they may not be left with much of an impression of me at all. I don't really dislike people like this but I wish I could connect with them better. What should I do? Try to match their loquaciousness? Keep doing what I'm doing? Something else? [more inside]

Bi/lesbian women: What can another woman say in a first message on a dating site to pique your interest? What do you look for in profiles/pictures/etc? I've been out for a few months, using OkCupid and Craigslist and haven't gotten one date.

What is it with this guy...is he just a rare cheesy bird or am I getting blown off politely?

I've been jaded by silly boys these past few years and am wondering if I am misunderstanding a current flirtation with an old friend. At first, I questioned if his request to meet up was just a platonic get together, but after a few weeks of texting, it's obvious he is definitely flirting. My question is, if he was interested, why hasn't he asked me out by now? And if he isn't interested, what is with the odd texts that seem too cheesy to be sincere? [more inside]

Should I date someone I'm not attracted to if the other option is never dating?

Should I date someone I'm not attracted to if the other option is never dating? I'm a girl. I went on a date with a boy I met on the internet, and it was pathetic. We talked about my mother, his mother, and lesbian movies I've seen. (Was that a bad subject for a first date? I'm inexperienced.) He was using open body language and I was using closed. I didn't realise this at the time. He was totally uninitiative and way too nice and I found that unappealing. [more inside]

Spoiler -- this is probably just a thought experiment. The likelihood I'll actually have the (figurative) balls to do anything is somewhat questionable. So let's be creative! [more inside]
