I need help understanding a complex dream. I had a dream
I had a dream that I was spending time with one of my friends then all of a sudden we both fell and we were face to face. He then went in for a kiss, but as he was within centimeters of my face, I turned. A little disappointed he got up and helped me to my feet and we kept going. The scene then changed and I was walking in a church with a little kid I've never seen before, but I seemed to know him when I saw my friend talking to a group of guys I also didn't know. They all kept looking at me either concerned or suspicious of something so I went to figure out what was going on. As I approached them, my friend stood up and quickly came up to me and said he needed to tell me something, but then he started to disappear. That's when I woke up. … read more

I am certain I'm in love with my boyfriend and can't picture myself with anybody else. The relationship is great and quite positive. But, I constantly overthink about it.

Im not sure how this works. Im having relationship problems
Ive been married for 8 months & dated my now husband for 2 years prior. We started off well, but soon things got complicated & he stopped putting in effort, communication & overall “lost interest” in our marriage. His mom has a lot of negative opinions about me & I feel like its causing a distance between us. My husband thinks I have anger issues, but the only time I get frustrated is when he has a hard time understanding where I am coming from. He hears everything I have to say, but doesn't actually listen or understand. He wants me to bring my parents into all of this & I feel like its a bad idea. He is my husband & he should work out my issues with me & not my parents.… read more

Getting answers to your relationship questions


These Experts have handled questions on JustAnswer such as:


  • I’ve never been in a real relationship. Why can’t I get any women to like me or want to date me?
  • Why does he keep me around and say he cares about me while telling me he’s in love with someone else?
  • What can I do when my long-time partner has never gotten over the fact that I had sexual experience before meeting him?
  • How can I establish communication again with a girl who has recently gone quiet on me through our phones?
  • How do I handle my husband’s mood swings?
  • What should I do when I have strong feelings for a bisexual man who seems to like me but nothing more?
  • How long do rebound relationships last on average?

It can be difficult to explain a romantic problem to an Expert, so it’s often helpful to organize the facts first, and even write them down so that they make sense to you. The Expert will want to know:


  • The length of the relationship
  • The ages of the couple
  • The exact circumstances that cause the problems
  • What you’ve already tried to do to address the problem

Phone calls are also available to speak with the Experts if it’s easier for you. The more information the Expert has about the circumstances surrounding your problem, the more helpful the answer will be.
