article-2061094-0EC403A500000578-694_468x463It’s that time of year again: time for spring cleaning, where it’s out with the old and in with the new. People start to go through their closets and cupboards, deciding what stays and what goes—it’s therapeutic, refreshing, and a long-standing tradition.

kencan4Q: Hi Emily!

I’m 24 and my boyfriend is 42, and lately we have been having problems with his—as he calls it—“retroactive jealousy”. Though I am much younger than him, I’ve had many more lovers than he has. As a result, he’s always bringing up my past experiences and comparing them to his own. He constantly bombards me with questions and asks me to recall memories that I would rather not think about. Is it okay that he’s asking me to divulge my sexual history to him? What good could possibly come of it? How do I help him understand that my past has nothing to do with our present?

Thanks,
Jenn

“Dear Emily,

I’ve been in and “on and off” relationship for three years now that is currently on its way to being “off” again. I feel we’re just stuck in a cycle of break ups and make ups, and I don’t think that it’s doing either of us any good. I love him, but I don’t know if it’s a good idea to How many times do you try to make a relationship work before calling it quits?

Thank you,

Jane”
