Dimelo: "I'm Tired of Hiding That I'm Latina"
By Pauline Campos | 12/16/2013 - 16:15

Dear Pauline,

I am a white and Puerto Rican woman living in southern Texas. Depending on how I dress, or do my make up or hair, I can appear to be either heritage. The problem? I am afraid, almost ashamed, to show my Latina side. I used to be so proud, letting everyone know that I was both white and Latina. But now I'm scared to identify with my Puerto Rican side because of negative attention.

By Pauline Campos | 12/02/2013 - 09:30

Dear Pauline,

I met a guy while out for my birthday with friends. Before the night was over, we’d made out, he’d asked me what I wanted for my birthday and asked me back to his place (I let him know that’s not my style).

Dimelo: "Should I Leave My Boyfriend For Another Man?"
By Pauline Campos | 11/21/2013 - 14:55

Dear Pauline:

I'm 18 and my best friend is a guy. We met through Facebook and got to know each other by talking every day for two months before he asked me out. We then met in person but by then he had a girlfriend. Now he and I go to parties every weekend; we've kissed and talked about how our lives would be different if we were dating. When we had sex, I knew I loved him. The problem is I am not ready to walk away from my current relationship. Que hago?
