Dear Dr. Frankie, I live in San Francisco and I am a single mother of a two-year-old boy.  I work and study and I am having an extremely hard time meeting other women who are interested in the same things I am. I am attractive but I just don't know if I'm sending the right message out there. I feel like

Dear Dr. Frankie, I am a successful, driven, career-oriented woman at a Silicon Valley-based software company. I am in my early 30s and earn almost one million dollars a year. I am dating a wonderful woman who works in the non-profit sector. She attended Ivy League universities and has her PhD, she is extremely successful in her field. We’ve been dating

Dear Dr. Frankie, I just started dating someone who is really special to me.  I don’t know how to, or even if I should, tell her that I experienced terrible physical and sexual abuse from a relative growing up. I don’t want to freak her out because things seem to be going really well, but I also want to have a

Dear Dr. Frankie, Am I too cynical of relationships? When I meet new people I sometimes find someone I am attracted to, but most just become friends. The charming ones become more inviting which is then followed by the "hit it off" stage. I'm not sure if I get scared or I'm just more interested in cultivating a large group

Dear Dr. Frankie, I was in a long-term marriage and had two awesome kids. I fell in love with a woman with whom my children and I have been living for about 10 years. I came out to my family and friends but not to my children. It hurts me so badly because I want to be honest about my relationship,

Dear Dr Frankie, I am a single Bisexual woman. I have been equally attracted to both genders all my life, however recently I have felt a stronger pull towards woman. This might have to do with my recent break up with my ex of nine years. I have gone to a local gay bar and also created an OkCupid account, but I

Dear Dr. Frankie, I think I've met a chick I really dig. We are still just flirting but I get a really good vibe from her. When I do ask her out I really want to impress her and hold her interest. Is waiting to have sex a good tactic for keeping her interested? I don't want to come off as

Dear Dr. Frankie, I recently had a breakdown at my doctor’s office for my annual pap smear exam and she suggested I seek help. That is very difficult considering I'm in the military and the records they keep. I was abused when I was about 5 or 6, and ever since then I find it very difficult to connect with

I love surprises. One year for Valentine's Day, my girlfriend surprised me with a fully crafted and choreographed scavenger hunt in our city, complete with riddles, excursions and “actors” along the way. [caption id="attachment_919" align="alignleft" width="213"] Photo by Shameless Photography[/caption] The journey began with flowers and a note on my doorstep telling me to be at the restaurant where we had our

Upscale restaurants, high-end boutiques and luxury condos have benefited from San Francisco’s recent tech boom. But those aren’t the only industries that have reaped the rewards. The business of love has embraced the tech boom, too. Local matchmakers say an increasing number of San Franciscans are dishing out cash on an old fashioned way to find love: hiring someone to help

Dear Dr. Frankie, I recently went on a few dates with a girl. We totally clicked and had so much in common. But after a few dates she told me she is relatively new to the gay scene, just had a relationship end abruptly and wants to take things slow. She said she wanted to focus on developing good friendships. She

Dear Dr. Frankie, Can you please help me understand why so many women in our community resort to juvenile tactics when a relationship ends? Once we reach a certain age we should see how petty this behavior makes us look. I have several friends who rely on passive/aggressive behavior to resolve conflict… I have two friends over the age of 50, who

"Most people think of love as a feeling," says David Richo, "but love is not so much a *feeling* as a way of being present." In his book, How to Be An Adult in Relationships, Richo offers a fresh perspective on love and relationships—one that focuses not on finding an ideal mate, but on becoming a more loving and realistic person. This

Dear Dr. Frankie, I finally found the quote of yours that I have been perplexed about: "You probably want to get a sense of whether she’s had long-term, healthy, intimate relationships, whether she’s had positive experiences in her relationships and whether she and her ex maintained a friendship after the breakup" I get why this would be revealing, but sooooo many
