    Dear Yenta,

    I just broke up with my boyfriend of about 4 years, 3 weeks ago.  Our relationship had been dying for the past 6 months (but had never been easy.)  He does not live in the same city as me.  I’d been attracted to a very good friend of mine for quite awhile, and a few... read on

    Dear Yenta,

    I am currently seeing 3 people, I like them all for different reasons, and I am having fun.  Although, I do feel cheap at times, and like I am using people.  I don’t know what to do. I spend a lot of time keeping these relationships going and am running out of my own... read on

    Dear Yenta,

    I grew up in Northern Montana in a small town and have lived here most of my life. I just left my husband of seven years and am feeling curious. He was so very straight and narrow. If my thoughts were ever too far out of his bounds, he shut them down fast. I am excited... read on

    Dear Yenta,

    I recently fell in love again with the wrong person. This is a habit that now annoys me because I know what I am doing wrong and still do it. The man is wrong for me because he, quite honestly, is completely crazy. He is violent, irrational, sadistic, unkind and... read on
