My military boyfriend might be proposing — after three weeks of dating

My military boyfriend might be proposing — after three weeks of dating

Dr. Date

January 20, 2020

Dear Dr. Date, Ah, military men — is there anything sexier than a guy working out in camouflage pants to serve his country? Maybe it’s just a me thing, but I love men in green, and my friends know it. They set me up with a guy a few weeks ago, and I fell head over heels. He seemed to like me as we...

Dear Dr. Date,  I’ve always been confident with my looks — sure, I might not have the "ideal" Victoria’s Secret model body, but I’m happy with who I am. I’ve been dating my girlfriend for over a year and thought she felt the same, until recently.  When we first talked about our exes a ...

Dear Dr. Date,  Look, a girl’s gotta eat. So when I'm feeling up to it, I do what any single girl does — swipe right on every guy on Tinder in hopes of a dinner date. So far, this method has been working out well. I get a free meal, some guy gets company, and we both part happily (and satiated...

Dear Dr. Date, The holiday season is fast approaching, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m the kind of person who goes all out for every holiday, but all holidays pale in comparison to the event of the year — Christmas. I start planning my annual holiday party in October and have been buying decor...

December 9, 2019

Dear Dr. Date, My girlfriend and I have been dating since the beginning of fall semester and are pretty much obsessed with each other. We live on the same floor of our dorm, so we sleep in each other’s rooms every night, despite one of us almost always rolling off the twin bed. We go to meals togeth...

Dr. Date: Uhh, why is my date asking my shoe size?

December 5, 2019

Dear Dr. Date, I went on a date with this guy that WAS going well — until he asked me my shoe size. At first, I was taken aback, but then I got uncomfortable. He brought it up so casually and then pretended he never asked me. It was weird because it was the first time we had talked, and it seemed l...

December 5, 2019

Dear Dr. Date, When my new girlfriend confessed her side job was freelancing for people who had a sexy taste in books, I was thrilled. What’s better than having a super hot girlfriend? A super hot girlfriend who writes erotic novels. After some urging, she told me her pen name, and I looked her up ...

Dr. Date

December 2, 2019

Dear Dr. Date, I’m in kind of an awkward situation. See, my girlfriend and I have been dating for a few years now, and I know her family pretty well. I normally go home for holidays (my parents are weird about that stuff), but this Thanksgiving my girlfriend and I went to her place for dinner. I wa...

Dr. Date

December 2, 2019

Dear Dr. Date, I’ve never been a big Black Friday person — my idea of the day after Thanksgiving includes a long nap and lots of leftovers. But my boyfriend’s family is big into getting deals, so I begrudgingly woke up at 4 a.m. to go to Best Buy. Gotta get that 75-inch TV for like $10, right?&nb...

Dr. Date: My date wants to Netflix and chill, but I just want the movie

Dr. Date

November 27, 2019

 Dear Dr. Date, I recently started dating a guy I met on Tinder. In his Tinder profile, he said “let’s go to the movies and chill,” so I thought he might actually want to go see a movie instead of “watch Netflix." I’m a huge film nerd and love seeing anything and everything, especially...
