Dimelo: "My Friend Has Turned Into A Competitive Monster"
Dimelo: "My Friend Has Turned Into A Competitive Monster"

Dear Pauline,

Ayudame, por favor. My friend has entered my work industry. A once fun and trusting friendship is quickly becoming a competitive relationship. Because she was my friend, I introduced her to key people in the industry. Now, she is proudly closing deals and growing quickly. She doesn't return my calls anymore. When I see her at networking events, she's quick to let people know we are friends but never introduces me to new connections. How do I salvage our friendship? Is it too late?

Dimelo: "Should I Move On?"
Dimelo: "Should I Move On?"

Dear Pauline,


I've been living the single life for three years now, but I happened to be with a guy these past three years just as a rebound from my last ex-boyfriend. Turns out he has a live-in novia that he told me about the first month, but we kept talking because we were madly "in lust." I honestly didn't think things would last this long and I've avoided sex this past year because I've been feeling guilty about the girlfriend.

Dimelo: "How Can I Convince My Mother That My Older Boyfriend is Good For Me?"

Dear Pauline, 

I'm a 20-year-old college sophomore and I'm moving in with my 45-year-old boyfriend at the end of this month. I could go on and on about how awesome he is and about how he wants me to pursue my education and be an activist when it comes to the things I'm passionate about (DREAM act, immigration reform, etc.) and how he is just as passionate as these topics as I am, going to events and supporting me every step of the way. It's really awesome.

Dimelo: "Is It Okay For Girls to Ask Out Guys?"
Dimelo: "Is It Okay For Girls to Ask Out Guys?"

Dear Pauline,

My best friend and I are having an argument right now that we've turned into a bet. I say it's okay to ask a guy out and that waiting and hoping is old-fashioned thinking. She says being the one to ask makes a girl look slutty and desperate and that waiting for him to notice you might be old-fashioned, but that that alone doesn't make it wrong. We are 16 and we've never had a boyfriend or been on a date yet.

Dimelo: "I've Never Had a Boyfriend"
Dimelo: "I've Never Had a Boyfriend"

Dear Pauline, 

I'm almost 23 and am a fourth-year-college student who spends more time in the psych lab than I do on the dating scene. I've never had a boyfriend and, to be honest, I've never even been on a date, although a waiter at a restaurant I go to likes to flirt with me. There's also a soccer-player I know who has talked me a lot since freshman year. I'd like to get to out there more but am not sure how to do that without losing my integrity and self-respect.

Dimelo: "How Do I Tell My Family I'm Not Having Kids?"

Dear Pauline,

I've decided I don't want to have children. I know it's not what my family wants to hear and I'm not even sure how to bring it up without a major fight.

I'm 32 and engaged to an incredible man. I can't wait to start planning our wedding!

Dimelo: "Why Does It Matter That He's Black?"

Dear Pauline,

I'm 15 and I really like this guy who is a Junior. He is very sweet and very cute and he asked me to see a movie with him. I'm allowed to date now, since I had my quince, but I'm not sure what I should do.
