I'm a 29-year-old professional Latina. I'd love to find a good man—preferably a Latino—to share the rest of my life with. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to find such a man. I don't know what's going on with our hombres who feel so threatened by intelligent women with good jobs and aspirations. I feel that if I didn't work and stayed home cooking, cleaning and taking care of a bunch of kids all day, I'd have found a man already. What do you think?

I'm very proud to be Latina, but it infuriates me when my non-Latino boyfriend introduces me by nationality. He'll say something like, "This is Valeria, she's Dominican." Wink, wink. I don't even get it! And it is so annoying. How can I let him know how much this bothers me without blowing up in his face about it?

I’m 19 years old and have a huge problem with my vato. We’d been dating for about 10 months but, as you know, Mexicans from Mexico are
different when it comes to relationships. They are very jealous and don’t let their novias have friends, hang out with amigas or go to dances, all of which I love doing. I did everything he asked, and now that we have broken up I don’t know what to do with myself.

I have a little problem. I love my husband very much and I’m pretty sure he loves me, too. We used to live with his mom, but we moved to my parents’ house a couple of months ago. Ever since, he’s never around and is always going to his mom’s house. I don’t know if it’s because he doesn’t feel right here. What should I do?

I'm seeing a guy I really like. He's cute, nice and respectable, except that five months ago he finished a two-year jail sentence for breaking and entering. I'm a good girl who's going to college and I want to make something of my life, not like the other mujeres I see around me. He tells me that he needs someone like me to keep him out of trouble. Do you think it's a mistake to start a serious relationship with him?

I have a huge crush on this guy who is really friendly and super sweet to me, but all we ever do is talk about work. One of my coworkers told me he might be gay. How can I find out about his sexuality without embarrassing him or myself?
