Many years back, a friend confessed his love to me. At that point, I made fun of him and didn’t take him seriously. I stopped talking to him. He even fought with someone for me. We continued being good friends over the years. But now, I have started developing feelings for him. I feel like being with him all the time. How can I confess my love? -Xoxochaasmish
XoXochaasmish, look what you’ve done! I took so long to write your name down correctly that I’ve run out of time to answer your question. Okay, let me give it a shot. He loved you. Now the tables have turned, so what’s stopping you? The recession? Eat humble pie, a dollop of custard, (low fat, please), and tell him how you feel. He loved you once, doesn’t have a lover at present, so there’s a decent chance that his feelings are the same.
There’s a girl who always stares at me. Whenever I see her, I get nervous. I want to talk to her, but I get confused. How do I talk to her? -ST
If she’s staring at you, first check who is behind you. If it isn’t Arjun Rampal in Spandex, or an elephant mounting another, or me receiving a Padma Bhushan Award, then the chances are that she is checking you out. Amir Timur once executed a man for staring at him in 1304 AD. That the man was both his brother and his eye doctor performing an eye check up on Timur at the time, made little difference. Similarly, she’s interested, make the first move. Talk to her. A simple ‘hi’ or a smile. It’s looking good for all three of us.
I’ve been dating a girl for three years. Recently, I joined the company where my girlfriend is working. I got attached to another girl there and broke up with my girlfriend. Since then, she has been constantly messaging and calling me. I can’t focus on my current relationship. How do I get rid of her? -KT
You’ve moved on but she hasn’t. You need to be firm and yet sensitive in telling her that it’s over. Sometimes this is easier to do by letter. Don’t give her false hope. You have to literally, just move on.
I am 24, and I was in a relationship with a 30-year-old married man three years back. We used to have sex regularly. Two-and-half-years back I got married. But my husband can’t satisfy me sexually. I miss my friend a lot. I love my husband. Can I revive my relationship with my married friend? -KKB
KKB, you naughty girl! You want me to be responsible for your adultery? If you are unsatisfied, see a sexpert with your hubby. There are many options today. I suggest you do that rather than take a chance on your marriage.
