Q. Several months ago, I had too much to drink at an office party and ended up sleeping with my married boss. He offered me a ride home, and I forgot myself. I was lonely and he took advantage of my vulnerability. However, since that time, he continues to harass me sexually even though I told him it was a grave mistake I regret. I can’t stand looking at him, but I don’t know what to do? He’s a very vengeful person and I don’t want to lose my job. I haven’t told anyone what happened.
A. You need to do three things. Talk to an attorney. Begin looking for another job, and keep a written record of every time he approaches you inappropriately.
Q. I am in love with two different women in two different cities and both are pregnant. My problem is that I want to get married, but I can’t decide which one. My friends suggest I marry the one I think I can live with…but both of them are compatible in that area. If you were in my shoes, what would you do?
A. Marry the one I can’t live without.
Q. I’ve been dating this guy for over a year and he was recently injured in a car accident. He is now disabled and in need of a devoted girlfriend. The problem is that I was planning to break up with him the day he was injured. I had begun seeing someone else, and I was done with him because of his tendency to be mean and temperamental. However, though I want out of the relationship, I feel guilty because of his predicament. I feel miserable, but stuck. Any suggestions?
A. It’s not fair to you or him for you to pretend to feel what you don’t. Tell him the truth and experience the thrill of release. I’m sure he’ll survive.
