    I’m 18. I’ve been seeing my boyfriend for four months. I go down on him, but he hasn’t gone down on me because I’m nervous about it. What if he hates it? What if I hate it?

    Raise your hand if you were ever 18 years old? All of you? Great. Keep them up if you can say your dad was the President of the United States. Pretty much none of you? Cool.

    I am [a] recently single [guy] and love to go out and enjoy talking to new people on dating sites, but the idea of meeting them for some quiet one-on-one talk where the pressure is on to find a connection does not seem fun to me.
