I was dating my now ex, for about 4 months, everything seemed to be great. However, out of nowhere he calls me and breaks up with me. He says, “He needs time to work on himself.” … but then a week later he called me and told he was back with his ex! So then they were together for about 2/3 months…. and I just happened to reach out to say hello. (I know, don’t judge me.) Then we start talking and he tells me that he and his ex are over….
So now, we are back hanging out and sleeping together, however, he has not said that he wants to get back in a relationship with me. I’ve asked him about it and he says he doesn’t know, but he knows he does not want to lose me.
What should I do?

Exposure to a known hormone disruptor chemical, Perchlorate, poses a threat for pregnant women and their unborn children according to a recent studies. At high doses, according to the EPA, the chemical impairs the thyroid’s ability to absorb iodine from the blood, in turn causing the gland to malfunction and potentially underproduce hormones involved in metabolism and infant and childhood development. The thyroid hormone being compromised is called T4, which is necessary for fetal brain development. This may lead to developmental issues after birth.
Perchlorate is used as fuel starter for rockets, weapons, fireworks, airbag initiators, matches and flares. It can be found in some fertilizers, disinfectants, food packaging and plant killers. Studies have shown that it pops up in lots of everyday items we use such as lettuce, milk, and bottled water.

I’ve been struggling lately with trust. I just started dating a new guy and i’m nervous i’m going to mess it up. I’ve had issues in the past in regards to trusting others because I’ve been hurt in the past. Does anyone have any advice on how to get over trust issues. I really want to trust again, but it’s just hard to trust once you’ve been hurt before.

Okay y’all, I need your advice…
One of my girlfriends just sent me a photo of my boyfriend downtown with this woman who I cannot recognize. Yes, I’m a tad crazy, aren’t we all? lol. Don’t judge me. So i called him because I wanted to see if he would pick up while she was around but he did not answer. He has never been late coming home, or gave any indication that he is cheating. Do you think he is seeing another woman? What should i do?

I started dating this guy, about 2 months ago. Everything is going great, I really like him and can see this actually going somewhere. The other night I brought up casually about why we aren’t friends on social media (instagram and Facebook) and he kind of shrugged it off like, “I usually don’t friend girls I’m dating, because it can cause unnecessary problems”. The way he said it had a kind of finality tone to it, so I didn’t press him any more. However, it’s really bothered me, because I don’t see why he wouldn’t want to add me on social media unless he’s hiding something. I’ve gotten mixed responses from my friends about it, and wondering what would you do or think in my situation?
