Help Me, Harlan!

Get real, nice guys don't really exist

Dear Harlan: I can't tell you how tired I am of hearing that women don't want a nice guy. That was the line my current husband used on me. I was honest with him from the beginning that I was looking for a permanent relationship, would work hard to make it last and that porn was a deal-breaker because it ruined my two previous relationships.

Yes, love is possible for a 38-year-old virgin

By Harlan Cohen
Dear Harlan: Not to go into too much detail, but throughout most of my life, my mother brought not-so-desirable men into my home, starting with my father. So now I feel like I am just not meant to have good men in my life.

Reader quits! Reading about sleeping around is not acceptable

Nice guys who go on lots of dates are hot

By Harlan Cohen
Hey Harlan: I recently took a girl out on a date and we were hitting it off. She pointed out to me that she would be more interested in dating a bad guy because she believes that she can fix a bad boy.

Cool girl needs to change her approach if she ever wants to find a cool guy

By Harlan Cohen

Dear Harlan: I think I'm a really cool girl, but it seems like every guy I'm into doesn't want a relationship at all - they always say that I'm everything they want in a girl, but for "later in life." When is this going to stop? - Too Cool

Heartbroken man in pain over ex and looking for cure

By Harlan Cohen
Dear Harlan: My ex and I were dating for about two years, and we moved in together a few months ago. She is my first and only (so far) serious relationship. We both recently started changing a lot, and we thought that at the end of the school year, we should go our separate ways.
