Addressing non-dealbreaker behavior in relationships

I've had issues with being assertive about my needs in past relationships, and while I've gotten a lot better, I still have trouble deciding when and how it's best to bring up things that I don't like but are not dealbreakers. I'd like help thinking this through. [more inside]

How do I tell my friends my relationship has ended?

(Asking for a friend.) My long-term relationship just ended, and I'm trying to figure out how to tell all of my friends and acquaintances about it with a minimum of drama. I'm thinking a mass email is the way to go (Facebook seems like a horrible plan) but I can't deal with the thought of composing that email right now. Help, please! [more inside]

It's not head vs. heart, it's more like heart vs. heart.

Reverse-breakup filter! We broke up, but both clearly still feel deeply for one another. So... now what? What determines whether a relationship is worth going back to? As always, snowflakes inside! [more inside]

Goodbye to all that

I was with my ex-wife for a long, long time. She cheated; we separated and ultimately got an easy divorce. We’ve each moved on, and I’m close to proposing to my girlfriend after about two years together. We’re a great pair. But I often feel unanchored, cast about by the knowledge that nothing lasts forever. Am I doing it wrong? Other divorced folks (esp. those on the dumped side)—what’s the path forward? [more inside]

How to convince a girl I'm not too inexperienced for her?

I seem to be on the other side of this question. The girl I'm currently dating is a bit older than me (me: 22, her: 24) and has way more sexual experience. She had several relationships before, I only one. She seems to be very concerned about going too fast. [more inside]

In Love With a Friend

I've fallen in love with one of my best female friends, someone I have practically no chance of ever being with, and I'm unsure of how to deal with the situation. Do I cut her off completely and try to get over it? Do I act like nothing's happened and continue to be her friend despite the fact that it gets worse every time I talk to her? Do I ask her to give me space without telling her why? Help me, mefites; this is rotting me from the inside out.
