Introducing Dr Love, who solves your relationship riddles in a confusing digital age
My Instagram account was hacked a week ago, and someone put up disgusting pictures on it. My boyfriend thinks I did this and hasn't spoken to me since. What can I do to convince him?
Send him links explaining how hacking works, consider filing a complaint if these images damaged your reputation in any way, and go out with someone who is less touchy and more understanding next time.
Is there a nice way to tell someone that their personal hygiene habits are awful? My boyfriend bathes once every two days and I can't find a way of telling him that this is the weirdest thing I have ever heard of. I have tried discussing it in the past, but it just makes me sound rude. He's a really sweet guy, so I don't want to hurt his feelings.
You should consider meeting him only on the days he bathes, and hope that he gets the message. If he doesn't, carry a handkerchief around him all the time and use it the minute he comes into view. As for being sweet, it has nothing to do with him being clean. They are not mutually exclusive, which means he ought to be both.
I am madly in love with my neighbour, who is just a year younger than I am. We chat often, in the lift or outside our building, but she never even smiles when I meet her with her parents. I don't know how to approach her and get her to come and have a cup of coffee with me so we can chat a little more. I don't even know if she's single, because she never talks about her personal life. What can I do?
If she's on Facebook, why not send her a non-creepy message introducing her as your neighbour? If she's not online, why not simply ask her out the next time you meet in the elevator? If she's not single, why not consider speaking to someone else who is?
The inbox is now open to take your most carnal and amorous queries.
