I have been in a relationship with a girl for the last year. We love each other a lot. Recently, she told me that she was going for a class, but I accidentally met her at a metro station, which is very far from her class. After this incident, I have stopped trusting her. I think she has another guy in her life. What should I do?

Mr. D, the writer Pushkin told his son Pu Pu Pushkin, that his mother was really his aunt. This confused Pu Pu who didn’t know if Pushkin meant his own mother, or Pu Pu’s mother? My point here is that confusion should not be allowed to escalate. You can see how that’s playing with politics in India at the moment. You have to confront her and ask her to spill the beans. For now, will you wonder about your mother and your aunt? How can you have any quality relationship when your trust has gone bust? I wish you could have met Pushkin, you two would have got along just fine. Sadly, I think your instincts are right about this one.

Recently, I broke up with my boyfriend because of the things he did in the past. He has anger issues. Despite all this, I wanted him back, but he called me and my love fake. I am not able to forget him because I still love him. He appears to be unaffected by all of this. Maybe, for him, it was just infatuation. I feel cheated. What should I do?

Yesterday, I vomited, as my wife was eating boiled fish. Let me make it clear. I vomited because of my reaction to the boiled fish. As of now, I didn’t retch because of my wife, per se. Anyway, because I vomited , my wife got very angry and threatened to never leave me. Similarly, your friend seems to have over-reacted, and then turned to using mean words to hurt you. Obviously, he didn’t have access to boiled fish, poor guy. In any case, you broke up with him. So why not sweet talk him a little to get him back? His seems to be sulking.Creative people are very receptive to kind words, a pat on the head, a gentle pulled ear, those kind of things. Please put your pride aside and show him a little kindness. His anger may just disappear. Unfortunately, back home, I can’t say the same about the boiled fish.

I like a guy, and confessed the same to him. But, he said he doesn’t want to be in a relationship and that we can be just friends. After this, he started behaving very strange. He has stopped talking to me. I am trying to get over him. Please help.

AT. I once asked a fruit seller how much for mangoes? However, he never answered me because he didn’t have any mangoes. In fact, he shoved them away with a stick., because I was standing on his foot at the time. You threw the dice, you tried your best. It’s similar to when one wears jeans without any underwear.You must get over him. Why waste time with awkward friendships? Do what the government would do . Just forget the incident and move on.

I have been in a relationship with a guy for the last eight months. We met on a social networking site. Initially, I even turned down his proposal. But then, I started feeling for him and told him the truth. So, after we got into a relationship, he has only been asking about getting physical. I love him, but not more than my self-respect. Should I breakup with him or tell him to stop talking about getting physical?

Ayushi, when a male tiger (587 pounds fighting weight) tries to mate with a female tiger, and if the female tiger is not sure, let me assure you that she gives the male tiger a real beating. This is why many male tigers have started chasing leopards now whenever they feel amorous. You are a tigress yourself. So how can this guy (who is no tiger, believe me) face you to get physical? Just let him know the rules. Animals respond well to rules, that’s why we have signs in jungles! Please don’t break up . Just be firm If you love him, let him follow a common agenda. Mating rights have to be earned, the old fashion way.
