THE DOCTOR'S FAQS ARCHIVES
Clingy Boyfriend in Social Situations
Dr. Berman, I work in a field where it is all men. That said, I am a professional and they all treat me with great respect. I have been with men in the past that were totally fine in social situations where my coworkers are around. My current boyfriend is a bit different. He is really awesome but really hangs all over me and becomes super clingy. He is not this way when we are just out and about.
When your kids don't like your new partner
Hi Dr. Berman, I've been dating my boyfriend for over a year now. I have 2 little girls, 6 and 8. My 8 year old just does not like my boyfriend and is very jealous when he comes over the house. She doesn't answer him when he talks to her and it comes off as disrespectful.
Wedding Ring
Dr. Berman- My wife and I have been together for 6 years. We have always been happy. Last year she went back to work part time and about 6 months ago she started working out afterwards. I love that she is active again, but what I notice now is that she hasn't been wearing her ring to work and then to the gym.
Stress
Dr. Berman- I am really high strung and both my parents are sick. My husband is busy with work and my children are draining all I have left. I am a ball of nerves and I want to learn how to better cope with my stress and anxiety because right now I feel like I am a ticking time bomb.
Issues with Mom
Dr. Berman- I have an issue with my mother. She is a lovely woman but she remembers every bad thing from even when I was a child and she refuses to let me forget about any of it. She constantly reminds me about the fights that we had while I was growing up and the bad things that I did as a teenager.
Dealing with work relationships
Dr Berman, I am loud, fun, love to laugh and have never been a wall flower. I started a new job 6 weeks ago and I made a ton of friends already. I am also working very closely with my boss. I have never felt like I had to curb my behavior around anyone. People have always told me how warm and inviting and easy to talk to I am. Well, I guess I was too warm and inviting to my boss because a week ago we had to work late on a project and we were laughing and having a great time and out of no where he leaned over and kissed me.
Kiss attempt turned bad
Dr Berman- I started hanging out with a guy I met through friends. We spent 3 nights last week together the entire weekend together and had an awesome time. Last night we met up with a group of friends and when I leaned in to give him a kiss he kind of shrugged me off. I thought we were something. When I sent him a text about it this morning saying just a cute, I wanted to kiss you so bad last night, he responded, "I just don't think we are there yet".
Lying about the small stuff
Dr. Berman, I have a girl friend who I am interested in but I notice that she lies to people about really small details. For example, she says she grew up in New York City but she didn't. She was born in a suburb and lived there her entire life. She will also tell people that she's been place where I know she has never gone.
Work Drama
Dr. Berman- I was out with coworkers and I ended up going home with a cute guy that works the floor below me. It was a fun night but I woke up and definitely regretted it. I has been a week and he keeps coming by my office and asking me out or just dropping in to say hi.
Being "In Choice"
Dr. Berman- I broke up with my boyfriend of 6 years a few months ago because after years of feeling like things weren't progressing (we're in our 30's) I decided I didn't want to waste my time much longer. My issue is that he was and still is my best friend. I told him everything and he supported me no matter the circumstance. Ultimately, he decided that children weren't for him so I had to walk away. I don't know what to do now.
