In Sharp Increase Over Last Year, Over Half Of Adults In U.S. Own Smartphones
A student sent me inappropriate pictures and I’m afraid to say anything
help

I’m in my mid-twenties, and I’ve been working as a substitute teacher for the last couple years (I joined Teach for America right out of college). I know some of the girls in classes I teach have crushes on me — high schoolers aren’t very subtle — but I brush it off, because I’m not an idiot. Last week, however, I got a disturbing email from a girl in the English class I subbed for. Pictures were attached. You get the gist. What do I do about this situation? I obviously haven’t responded, but I’m afraid she might go Lifetime-movie on me. More

Take My Advice: He’s Divorcing Me Because I Got Fat
help

A couple years ago, I went through a rough patch–my sister passed away suddenly, and I became very depressed for several months. By the time I came out of it, I’d put on upwards of 50 pounds. I’ve never been able to get it off; sometimes I’ll lose 10 or 15 pounds, but then it creeps back on, and I wind up heavier than where I started. More

Take My Advice: How Do I React to a Tinder Date Who Has Roving Eyes?
help

I didn’t have a date for New Year’s, so I went on Tinder and matched up with a guy. He met me at my friend’s party. At first it was fine–being at a party got rid of some of the Tinder-date awkwardness–but then he started getting really flirty…with everyone but me. I thought we were really hitting it off, but the way he acted made me wonder if I was just kidding myself. Should I ask him on another date without people around? Maybe he’s just a friendly guy.¬† More

Take My Advice: Drink and Kiss and Tell – Please, Tell
help

I made a mistake. Recently I went home for a friend’s wedding, and after getting tipsy at the reception, I hooked up with an ex from high school. Then I flew back home…to my live-in boyfriend. I’ve never cheated in the past, and I feel horrible about it. Obviously I’m not going to start up a long-distance thing with my ex, but I find myself fantasizing about him all the time now. Should I tell my boyfriend what happened? It’s eating me up. More

Take My Advice: Share The Love…Sores
help

My close friend recently broke up with her boyfriend, and told us it was mutual, just grew apart, blah blah. But I ran into his best friend at a party and he told me that my friend not only cheated, she gave her boyfriend herpes. Once he woke up with herpes, basically, he realized she’d been sleeping around and dumped her. I know she’s in a “take a guy home from the bar” phase post-breakup, and seeing as she didn’t even tell us about what happened, I doubt she’s telling the guys. Should I say something to her? Should I go out with her and cockblock? I have no idea how to handle this, but I’m afraid for the eligible male¬†population. More

Take My Advice: Beat It…At Home
Ridiculous

Someone in my office is masturbating at work. How do I know? Because I have found jizz on the toilet seat TWICE in the last two weeks. We have a few single-stall, shared bathrooms, and we’re a fairly small office. I have a few suspicions of who it could be, but no real evidence. If it were someone leaving rotten food in the fridge I’d just send a company-wide email, but that doesn’t seem like it will work for this. Our company is smallish–maybe 30-35 employees–and we don’t really have HR. Help? More

Take My Advice: I Know Too Much (Carnally)
help

My friend is really excited about a new boyfriend, and last night we went out to drinks so I could meet him. Turns out I already know him…because we used to sleep together occasionally a couple years ago. It was always a drunken booty-call kind of a thing, and it ended after he told me that he needed to “work on things with his girlfriend.” Apparently, he’d had one the whole time. I don’t really want to mention my sexual history with my friend’s new guy, because I think it would make things awkward, especially when she’s so into him. But I feel like she should know he’s a cheater. Do I say something, or just bite my tongue? More

Take My Advice: The (Slightly) Less Awkward Sexual Side Effects Conversation
Ridiculous

I have a friend who’s very…empowered about taking guys home. She claims she just does it because she has fun, and that she’s not looking for anything serious, so I mostly keep my mouth shut. Recently, though, she slept with one of my guy friends and he told me that she gave him herpes, and that she didn’t tell him she had it before they slept together. I feel like I should say something to her, but I don’t know what–that I know? That she needs to see a doctor? The whole subject is super awkward, but I think that what she’s doing is wrong. How do I get her to address this? More
