I'd like to hunt you again, my sweet.

I'm in a great longterm relationship - but I miss flirting. I have no desire to flirt with anyone but my guy, except... how do I recreate that feeling of excitement and butterflies that flirting brings? I've always felt that this excitement springs from the subtlety and not-knowing-ness of where it might go. When a relationship is already established, what actions would feel close to that?

My boyfriend has been doing lunch with the ex and not telling me about it.

I found out my boyfriend sometimes goes out to lunch with his ex, and he doesn't tell me about it. I feel this might be a red flag, not necessarily because of the specific situation, but because it shows he is perfectly capable of lying, even if by omission. Please help me gain some perspective.

You're a great guy, but let's just not be friends.

Why can't I get over this breakup?

The break-up was the logical, sane conclusion to my doubts about my ability to stay faithful. The relationship of a few years did not have a future in a happy marriage--I needed more experience and growth, she needed growth, period. So why, over half a year after I broke it off, am I still wondering if I made the right decision? Why can't I get her out of my head? [more inside]

Should I stay or should I go?

LifeFilter: bright lights, big city: I know that geographic relocation is often used by people who are unhappy where they are for reasons other than locale. However, I think that I am truly unhappy where I am. But I have a LTR here, my only relative (Mom) is here, and that's about it. I might be able to do my job telecommuting or at least come to the office only a couple days/week or days/month. *sigh* [more inside]

I really like this guy, but I think I screwed up. Can I fix this?

I've been dating this guy who was pushing things along very quickly right from the beginning. I was unsure at first but after a little while I got on board and started reciprocating his feelings. Now he says we're moving too fast. I got angry and told him he was a jerk. But now I think I overreacted. How can I fix this? Should I even bother? Longish explanation inside. [more inside]
