Dear Dr. Date, How do you handle being a flirty drunk? I don’t go to parties often, but every time I do, I end up flirting with someone way too much. It’s not a looking-for-a-hookup thing, it’s a genuine “let’s talk for a few hours and then set up a date for next week” thing. I’m norma...

Dear Dr. Date, Look, I’ll be real with you — I don’t really vote. I voted for the first time in the 2016 presidential race and have ignored every campaign sign since. It’s not that I don’t care, I just don’t see the point sometimes. So when I got a reminder for this year’s local electi...

Dear Dr. Date, My girlfriend and I have been having a rough time lately, mostly because I got very drunk and kissed another girl at a party a few weeks ago. Totally my fault and I’m not excusing it, so I deeply apologized a million times, and she decided to forgive me. We’ve had some tense moments, an...

Dear Dr. Date, I met my boyfriend online when we were both in high school, and we've been dating ever since. He went to  college in his home state, and, after begging him to transfer for two years, he finally moved to Minneapolis last month. Everything is going great, and he’s currently tryin...

Dear Dr. Date, My boyfriend and I had a total meet-cute: he was the server at my favorite restaurant, I was the regular customer, I finally left my number after a few weeks, and the rest is history. We’ve only been going out for a month or two, but it’s been super great. Plus, free meals at my fav...

Dear Dr. Date, My boyfriend and I have always had that “rich older man dating the hot young college student” relationship, except my boyfriend is like 25 while I’m 19. One of the best things about him is that he has a real-world job and has always made a point to pay for my expenses when we’...

Dear Dr. Date, Look, when your ex breaks up with you because “other girls are pretty hot too,” you start looking for revenge. We were together for six months and he had just met my family before deciding to play the field for the rest of college, so yeah, I’m bitter. I blocked him on everything and ree...

Dear Dr. Date,  God, if I see one more f*cking couple at a pumpkin patch, corn maze or haunted house, I am going to scream. I swear, everyone I know is out on cute fall dates with perfect Instagram photos in the fall leaves posting captions like “FALL-ing for him.” Every social media account...

Dear Dr. Date, My boyfriend is a huge Halloween fan and loves to create an elaborate costume every year. Now that we’re dating, he wanted to make a couples costume for the two of us. After running through a lot of ideas, we settled on one that’s ... a little sexual. He was Hugh Hefner, including...

Dear Dr. Date, For me, Halloween is about two things: getting blackout drunk and looking hot while doing it. Sexy costumes have been my thing for years, and for my senior year of college, I wanted to go all out. My boyfriend was more than happy to oblige in a couple’s costume, thankfully, so we’ve bee...
