My boyfriend and I have been living together for two years. He’s a great guy who’s always there for me. The problem is that he’s always admiring other women and commenting on how beautiful they are. He says he loves me and that he’s “just looking.” I go crazy just thinking he will be unfaithful to me.

Some friends I used to share common interests with have changed a lot this year. They have either lost or quit their jobs and are no longer motivated to do anything. They make me feel guilty for having other things going on in my life. Am I wrong for not wanting to spend more time with a bunch of perezosos?

My boyfriend likes to eat at Taco Bell and fast food spots all the time. I've worked really hard for my perfect curves, and I don't want to get fat. What should I do?

You have three options:
1) Pick the restaurant every other outing.
2) Cook a nice, healthy dinner and eat at home.
3) Count your blessings ‘cause you can go to the gym and he won't mind you NOT cooking a nice, healthy dinner!

I have been with this man for six years. We have one child together, and he has helped raise my oldest. However, we have many disagreements, and lately we don't see eye-to-eye on anything. He has a child by another woman and it seems as though the mother is always in the way somehow. Should I just walk away or should I tough it out because my heart is with him?

Two months ago my boyfriend, a musician, asked for some space and time apart. He works during the day, practices with his "professional band" most evenings, and on weekends he's out at his gigs. I met him a year ago, when he was just starting his "music career." He’s very professional and intelligent and has a BA in accounting. I believe that if he really enjoyed my company and wanted a future together, he would make time for me, one way or another. Am I right to ask this from him? Or should I respect his decision?

My father is from Cuba and my mother is of Italian descent. I look pura Latina, but when I was young my parents split, so I never learned the language as well as I wish I had. Now that I have a Cuban novio and see his family often, I'm having a hard time. They all assume that I am fluent in Spanish. I feel they don't accept me because of this. When I try to talk to them, I get nervous and tongue tied. It's embarrassing! What can I do?
