Dr. Date: Age doesn't matter?

Dear Doctor Date, I finally met the woman of my dreams: she’s brilliant, funny, beautiful and a host of other overused adjectives. Who would have thought waiting at the same bus stop with someone would lead to love? When we both got off at the same stop to go to Perkins, I knew it was fate. We spent ...

Dear Dr. Date, Look, I can appreciate the majority of music. Electronic is fun at parties, jazz is the perfect mood music at restaurants, and country is fun to drunkenly sing along to. Even if I don’t like the genre, I can stand just about anything as long as it’s not playing for more than an hour. My ...

Dear Dr. Date, I know dorm romances can generally be a bad idea, but I really think that my new boyfriend and I are the exception. We met when he knocked on my door asking me to turn down my music, I told him he was cute, we exchanged numbers, and the rest is history. My friends have questioned me dating ...

Dear Dr. Date, Last week, I discovered the greatest subreddit known to man — r/goph4goph, a forum devoted to asking for hookups. Just like personal ads in the paper (aka what existed before Tinder), you give your physical description, what you’re looking for and a way to contact you. Alas, the sub...

Dear Dr. Date, “Happy birthday sweetheart! I hope you have a great day! (P.S. try not to spend it all in one place!!!)” Cute card, right? My grandma wrote it. The problem? She wrote it to my ex-boyfriend! After dating for about two years, I broke up with my now-ex-boyfriend because things just weren’t wor...

Dear Dr. Date, I’ve been into this girl I know for a few months, but I’ve been too scared to truly ask her out. She’s said we should “chill” a few times and I’ll say yes, but then she’ll ghost me until weeks later. I’m still not sure if she’s interested in me and don’t want to get...

Dear Dr. Date,  My girlfriend and I started dating last fall and have become pretty serious this year. We discussed potentially moving in together, but after seeing many of our friends break up while still having to live together, we decided we wanted to be dating for at least two years. I sign...

Dear Dr. Date, I only become a Greek Life person once a year — homecoming. So yeah, Saturday I spend fifteen straight hours bouncing between houses, what about it? I was with some friends the whole time and we had a great experience without watching a single minute of football. My friend’s mom was in t...

Dear Dr. Date, I met this guy in my class a few weeks ago and we instantly hit it off. We were finishing each other’s sentences, had the same taste in music and visited all the same vegan juice shops. After a week of flirting in between lectures, he finally asked me out on a date! We had a great tim...

Dear Dr. Date, I haven’t been having much luck with Tinder lately. I’m newly single and am dipping my toes into the dating pool, but I’m really inexperienced. So last week, I asked a friend of mine to help me refine my profile, and the first thing she said was “Do you have a dog?” Apparently,...
