We tackle four sticky scenarios that cause tension—and tell you how to solve them.
1. “My mom picks fights with my husband.”
The Situation: Six years ago, Teresa and her husband married and moved to Charlotte, N.C., more than 600 miles from her family. Now, every time her “bossy, opinionated and judgmental” mom visits, she picks fights with her son-in-law. “How can I help them find some common ground?” the 32-year-old puertorriqueña asks.

Face it: There are just some things that men—especially NON-Latino men—need to know when it comes to dating a Latina. Like, trying to pick one of us up with: "Mami, ven aquí/I want to be your papi chulo, can't you see?" will get you clowned. (You are not my child and you are also not Diddy).

My boyfriend and I have been together for nine months, but we have issues: who calls who, who will pay for dinner this time, things like that. This could be because of our age difference. He’s 23 and I’m 29. Right now I’m at the stage where I’m looking for something serious. I asked him where our relationship is headed and he answered with, “Are you ready with all your debt?” I do have debts, but what does that have to do with anything?

Dear Ms. Playa:

I had finally done it. I had finally arranged a date with Zeus, the Greek man I'd met online a few weeks back. I woke up on date day with a sense of calm. My ease surprised me, as Zeus and I had never spoken. Still, off I went to meet a man for the first time that I'd only emailed half a dozen times. I hopped on the train, still mellow, with no expectations of fireworks or failure.

When it comes to matters of the heart, my life is pretty predictable. From only dating Latino men to the abrupt manner in which my relationships end, everything is always the same. Unfortunately, the same hasn’t led too much. It never does, does it?

Leaving the past in the past has always been quiet difficult for me. I am a woman who, when vulnerable and in love, attaches herself for life—whether the man is reciprocating or not. Luckily, I am slowly shedding that aspect of my persona, attempting to experience something new and different. And that’s why I decided to reply to Zeus.

I’m 22 and have been seeing this handsome 25-year-old hombre who really cares about me. He’s great except for one thing: He’s married to a 33-year-old woman with two kids. According to him, they’re having all sorts of problems. She’s horrible, never wants to spend time with him, goes off on vacation to Cancun by herself—the list goes on. Now he has invited me to go with him to Barcelona. I don’t know what to do.
