THE DOCTOR'S FAQS ARCHIVES
Living Like Roommates
Dr. Berman, My wife and I are living like room mates. I get that we have 3 kids, but we have a nanny and a housekeeper to relieve a lot of the stress that goes along with having children. They are also school aged and she doesn't work. I am trying not to be resentful, but when I come home, I need and want affection. Her response is always that she is just too wiped out. She feeds them breakfast, then goes to the gym or yoga... Then whatever else she does all day...
Fight Constantly but Make up Passionately
Dr. Berman, I have been in a relationship for 4 years. We met at work and had to keep it a secret until he finally changed jobs. It was always tumultuous and fueled with a lot of jealousy on both sides. Here is the thing... We fight constantly and then make up passionately. It almost feels like something is off if we aren't arguing about something.
Mr. Right?
Dr. Berman - I became single 6 years ago after a long-term marriage (27 years). It has been difficult establishing another serious relationship at age 56. Haven't had any luck in the love department for a long while. Except for one man I find I'm sexually attracted to and I enjoy spending time talking with him about everything, which is rare for me. He has told me in more than one occasion that he is not into me, which I am okay with it.
Ready for marriage?
Dr. Berman, I met the guy that I am going to spend my life with. He knows it, I know it. Here is the thing, I have been married before and everything changed after we went through it. I don't believe that it will happen with this guy, but after that terrible experience, I told myself I didn't want to be married again.
Do I really know this person?
Dr. Berman- I met the man of my dreams at a wedding. I had traveled in for it from Arizona. He lives in Long Island. We hit it off immediately. He has been divorced for 2 years and I have never been married. Since the wedding 6 months ago, we talk every day and have been able to get at least 2 weekends a month together. We have also done vacations and we have both met each others families. Here's the thing.. I know we are long distance, but I am 30 and he is 40.
Did my profession scare him away?
Dr. Berman, I met a guy standing in line at a starbucks after the gym one day. We both looked scrappy to say the least. We ended up sitting down together and having coffee right then and there and we seemed to hit it off. He seemed really down to earth and was just a nice guy. We started talking careers and I mentioned I was an attorney. We're both in our late 30's.
Get Clear
Dr Berman, I am 38 years old and recently divorced from my husband. We were 18 when we met and I haven't been out with anyone or been with anyone else since our first date. I keep hearing that things are different out there now, and that guys want to hook up sooner and do much more than when I first started dating.
My boyfriend is very close to his ex...
Dr Berman- I have been dating my boyfriend for almost two years, he has been divorced for about 15 months, they have 4 kids together. Two of the kids are in hockey and the next game for the 10 year old is in AZ. My boyfriend thinks it is ok to drive together with his ex to AZ.
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.
