Dimelo: "How Can We Avoid Holiday Family Functions Without Feeling Guilty?"
Dimelo: "How Can We Avoid Holiday Family Functions Without Feeling Guilty?"

Dear Pauline,

My husband and I are dreading the holidays. Each of us comes from parents that makes us feel grateful to have escaped. We're talking about shouting matches and broken furniture. As adults we each separately endured our parents banging on doors, showing up unexpected, and disregarding boundaries.

Dimelo: "Should I Take Back My Ex?"

Dear Pauline,

I'm a mother of four and I'm dreading the holidays. I miss my family being whole. This time last year, we were, hasta que he went and cheated on me and I kicked him out. I know my ex is a total d*ck but he had his moments. He has this little dimple when he smiles and he's a great dad and we fit perfectly when we spooned at night. Ay dios mio...

Dimelo: "My Partner Wants to Watch Porn Together"

Dear Pauline,

I'm married and happy with both my marriage and still totally in love with my marido. He still makes me laugh just as hard as the day we first met, we have just as much fun doing nothing as we do getting dressed up to go out on the town,  and I think our sex life is great.

Dimelo: "How Do I Get Back into the Dating Game?"

Dear Pauline, 

I'm an almost-divorced mom of three and adjusting to the new reality is hard. (He left us right after the birth of our third baby and my kids and I are living with my mami now.) What I want to know is how to get back in the dating game. I have no intention of sitting back and feeling sorry for myself while he flaunts his new girlfriends on Facebook.

Dimelo: "How Do I Get Her to Forgive Me For What He Did?" (Part 2)

Dear Pauline,

I know I don't see a lot of questions from guys here, but I think that too often we think we lose machismo points for appearing unsure of ourselves. Orgullo is orgullo, but I'm man enough to admit when I need help and smart enough to ask for it.

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.
