Ask a Dude: Can You Go from Friends with Benefits to Just Friends?

I love my boys, I really do, but I really am looking for a man who is willing to commit to me. I don't really want a romantic relationship with any of them, I want to find someone new, outside of our group of friends who I connect with. But how can I do that while they still want to be my friend with benefits?

Ask a Dude: How Do I Do the 'Casual Dating' Thing?

Hi Dude - I'm 21 years old and a junior in college. I've had a few boyfriends, but none lasting any more than 9 months, so I've spent quite a bit of time being single in the last 3-4 years. On the flip side, I've never just casually dated someone, it's always turned into a relationship.

Ask a Dude: Why's He Being So Flakey?

Dear Dude, So, I met this guy at a bar a few weeks ago. He is a little bit older (27 and I'm 22). He made some small talk with me and my friend, we left, I didn't give him another thought. Then, a week or so later we run into him again. He asks if we remember him, we say we do but can't remember his name. The thing is, he remembers my name and a few small comments that I had made to him, and ends up buying me a drink and asking for my phone number before leaving.

Ask a Dude: What's With the Cryptic Texts?

Dear Dude, Get ready for a toughy—the way this guy has demonstrated interest in me is far beyond my comprehension. He started flirting with me in October: sitting next to me in class, texting me nonstop, asking if I had a boyfriend, etc. I was very receptive and flirtatious back, but nothing happened. Physically speaking, the most we ever did was hug one another. But sometimes when he texts me, they’re very direct and sexual.

Tuffy Luv Says: He's Telling You He's Not Into You

Dear Tuffy Luv, Last semester I met this guy and we started hanging out a lot. We were never officially together, but he was my first everything and we had a great time for a few months. I made the mistake of assuming he was with me exclusively, and kind of freaked out on him when I found out he had been with other girls and still had contact with his ex who he had been with for years.

Ask a Dude: How Do I Make Him Trust Me Again?

Dear Dude, I need the perspective of a man. Please help. My boyfriend and I have in a LDR for the past year because he's studying abroad. Four months ago, I broke up with him for stupid reasons and I thought he would never take me back so I got drunk out of my mind and ended up hooking up with his best friend.

Ask a Dude: Why'd He Act Like a Boyfriend?

Dear Dude, Over the summer, I met this really great guy at work; there was definitely a mutual attraction between us. With every conversation we had, we found out we had a lot in common with each other. I was about to ask him out, but then found out he had a girlfriend. Needless to say, I didn't ask him out and things stopped there...

Ask a Dude: Is Asking for Clarification a Relationship Death Sentence?

Hey Dude, I just turned 20 and am a sophomore in college. I have plenty of friends, but I have never had a boyfriend. I have hooked up with random guys, with only one being "considerable" for something more. We were set up and hit it off right away, however it all changed when I asked where it was going (relationship or hook up) after a month of us going out...

Ask a Dude: Why Won’t He Let Me Live My Life?

Hi Dude, My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year. He was my best friend in the entire world for about 3 years before we started dating, and he means the world to me. But since I started college about 3 months ago, things have been getting really hard.

Ask a Dude: What Comes After The Honeymoon Phase?

Dear Dude, I've been with my boyfriend for about 6 months, and with school and work starting, it feels like the "honeymoon" period is finally over. The thing is, I don't understand why the honeymoon period has to be over and what's so great about the next phase.

Ask a Dude: Is There Something Better Out There?

Dear Dude, My boyfriend and I have been dating for just shy of two years now, and I know that I love him, but I have a slight underlying urge that I am missing out on something because I am so young. I would never cheat, and never have, and we have no prospects of breaking up.

Tuffy Luv Sez: Virginity Ain’t Baddy Baddy

Dear Tuffy Luv, Let me just say it: I am a 21-year-old-virgin. And let me also say, it's really starting to bother me. I am not some crazy, anti-social person, it just hasn't happened for me. I am very open-minded and consider myself to be adventurous. For my first time, I want to be with something that I really care about, not just some random guy.

Ask A Dude: Help Me Help My Man

Alright Dude, here goes: I've been dating my boyfriend for two years now and I love him to pieces. Our relationship is pretty great except there is one thing that is bothering me: his acne. He's 21 and still has acne all over his face, back, and chest. Understandably, this can be a major turnoff for me sometimes (getting up close and personal with whiteheads isn't really sexy).

Tuffy Luv Benefits A Friend

Dear Tuffy Luv, So for the past two months I've been hooking up with a friend of mine. We hang out most nights a week, though sometimes we hang out with other friends too so we don't hook up then. And sometimes we hang out and do other stuff instead of hooking up. That has been happening more and more lately, and in situations where we could be hooking up, and it's kind of been frustrating me.
