I love my new kitty, Agent Cooper, beyond all reason. He's 1 year old and was a stray, and he's been living with me for a month now. The problem is, he's a biter. I'm pretty sure it's an OH MY GOD I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, CHOMP! kind of bite, but I want to be sure I am reading, and handling, his behavior correctly. [more inside]

Breakup diplomacy, help me find peace

Breakup customs-filter. I did my boyfriend wrong, by becoming an exhausted-complaining mess, on a recent depressive lapse I had, partially due to a physical condition. He left me, scared and confused, though we were madly in love, after 3 months of this. I wish to part in peace. [more inside]

The LTR analogy: familiar small town versus exciting Istanbul

I read this article/essay that once compared long term relationships and the excitement of entering new ones with the difference between a small town and the exotic Istanbul / Marrakech (I no longer remember which). Perhaps you can point me towards the right direction? Many thanks.

Song request: It's nice to be liked but it's better by far to get paid

I'm looking for songs by female singers which include the trope of prioritizing money over love. I'm going fairly broad with this -- so I have "Material Girl", "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend", and "Shitloads of Money," but also "Maid on the Shore." I'm also willing to go a bit outside those lines -- for instance, "Ka-Ching" (Shania Twain) and "More Money Tonight" (Violent Femmes). The presence of money or other LIQUID assets is the major criterion. What are examples of popular music which contain explicit references to prioritizing money over love? Thanks!

The Childless Dating Those With Children

I'm currently seeing a man who has children, and this is my first experience with such a situation. It's new, so I've only just started asking the important questions, i.e., why did you divorce in the first place, how long have you been divorced, how is your relationship with your ex, are you both at peace with how it ended? etc. Everything seems to check out so far, but I know it would be foolish to think I won't encounter some unique problems if things get serious.

Love and Landmines

Falling for a woman. She just told me she just got out of a long term relationship (2+ years, ended this July) and wants to stay single for a while and work on herself because she always rushes into relationships. We've agreed things have been so easy, nice and right between us (3 weeks, 5-6 GOOD dates in), but she was very clear she does not want a committed relationship. I feel myself heading towards wanting just that. Am I headed to The Bad Place if I keep hanging out with her? [more inside]

Outdoor Colorado Weddings

I'm posting this as anonymous as I have some friends and family who read this site, and they don't know we're this serious yet. My girlfriend and I are talking about getting married this summer if we can afford it and afford living together. We're looking at possibly Saint Malo off of Highway 7, Panorama Point or doing something in Rocky Mountain National Park. We're leaning more towards a summer wedding outdoors, June or July. Saint Malo is great, but expensive for what we want ($1000 for a few hours). Panorama Point in Golden Gate State park is more feasible. We're both really practical so we want our friends and family there but not at significant cost or debt. Other then Rocky Mountain National Park or Golden Gate State park, what are some good locations in Colorado for an outdoor wedding? In terms of cost, food for < 30 guests, location, photographer etc... what should we plan to spend? We're talking about doing it on a weekday.

Desperate for Alternative Perspectives

How seriously should I take sexual attraction when choosing the person want to have a child with? Due to unique circumstances, I find myself with two clear and available options, wherein one potential partner has a great job and a gentle/humorous/intelligent nature, and the other potential partner has a freelance job and chooses to work less and focus more on passions and is compassionate/generous/inspiring. If my enjoyment with them, desire to help them, sense of understanding is all equal, and only the sexual desire aspect is lacking, how do I realistically approach this? [more inside]
