Dimelo: "I'm Not Sure I Can Handle My Boyfriend's Hidden Past. Should I Leave Him?"
By Pauline Campos | 12/30/2013 - 11:38

Dear Pauline,

Today I found out that my boyfriend of one year has had a lot of sexual partners (I had an idea of how many, but not THAT many!). I also found out that he has done illicit drugs, which he’s admitted to doing twice in the time we have been together. I just don't know what to do. I really do love him but should I leave him?

Dimelo: "Is My Boyfriend’s Mom Trying to Kill Me with Her Food?"
By Pauline Campos | 12/23/2013 - 12:33

Dear Pauline,

I've come to the conclusion that my new boyfriend's mother hates me. He's invited me over for dinner on multiple occasions, and each time she has served me a meal made with nuts, to which I'm deathly allergic. She knows about my allergy—my boyfriend has reminded her time and again. On Thanksgiving, she once again extended an invitation to her home and my boyfriend practically begged me to come. I agreed, even stopping at the florist for a hostess gift.

Sole Survivor: The Health Dangers Of Wearing High Heels
By Sandra Guzman | 11/08/2013 - 09:09

After a three-decade love affair with high heels, I am calling it quits. Blame (or credit) my last pair of tacones: six-inch black suede booties from a certain French designer, which I bought in a trendy Manhattan store. When I tried them on, the shoes looked amazing and felt great. I plunked down a few hundred dollars and decided to walk home, a leisurely 10-block city stroll.

Since I’ve announced my wedding date, the amount of people who have offered to help in the process has been incredible. It’s been very telling of how much love we have around us, which makes me confident in knowing our day will be special because it will be filled with people who truly wish us well.

And so the planning begins!

While I had some ideas of my own, I thought I should have a brainstorming session with my fiancé and get a feel for his thoughts on the nuptials. But when I sat down with Hector on a Saturday afternoon, super excited to begin laying out my dream wedding, I was hit with the harsh reality that Hector and I didn’t see eye to eye on this. Not only did Hec not want a big production; he also didn’t want to be all that involved in the planning process either – what’s a girl to do?!
