Why You Shouldn’t Build Your Friend’s Online Dating Profile

online2Maybe you’ve been single for a while. You know you’re not the best at putting yourself out there. Maybe you’re a little shy or just timid about pulling the trigger on online dating. And your friends, who love you, just want to help get you out there. And you’re tempted; your friends provide support for you in every way for your life.

Dating is no exception. But where is the line where support becomes misidentification? When it comes to online dating your friend may feel pulled to get you into the scene by writing your online dating profile for you. She’s thrown out words that you don’t know how to make yourself sound “interesting enough.” You wonder, is this the best idea? You know you want to be online, but is this the best way to go about doing it?


We’ve Been Together for 6 Months. Is it Too Soon to Say ‘I Love You’?

Helen from Calgary asks…Lavalife Ask the Expert

I dated a guy for 2 years and he left me because he fell out of love for me. I’m now with a really sweet guy who’s been so awesome to my friends and family. We’ve been together for 6 months. I almost feel like I’m already closer to him than my ex of 2 years. Is it too soon to drop the L-word? He’s only been in one long term relationship and it lasted just shy of a year…I don’t wanna scare him off.


My Boyfriend is Moving Away. Should I Stop Him?

Kallie from Atlanta asks…Lava365 Ask the Expert

I love my boyfriend of 4 years but he’s pursuing a career change (he’s 22) and it’s something I don’t agree with.

I don’t think my parents really like that he’s moving away from the medical field and into agriculture. Should I be worried that his decision will tear us apart? I think he wants to go to a university 2 hours away for grad school and I don’t think I could make the move for him. Help please!


Should I Bring my New Girlfriend to a Family Holiday?

Paul from Auburn Hills asks…Lava365 Ask the Expert

Every year I spend Thanksgiving with my parents. I’ve brought a girlfriend with me before, but they didn’t really like her and it was awkward. I’m dating someone new and they asked me to bring her to meet the family, but I don’t know if it’s a good idea. It’s a pretty new relationship, but she seems open to the idea. Could use some advice.



How do I Avoid Being a Clingy Dater?

Alyssa from St. Johns asks…Lava365 Ask the Expert

I dated a guy from [an online dating site] and it was nice. He has 3 kids and a good relationship with his ex-wife. He left me because he thought I was too clingy. I accept that and have learned to do better about getting too close to men. But what should I do differently if I’m looking for a relationship and fulfilling my “needs” as a woman? Men take that as a hook up and I’m not in college anymore, how do I find a man and not seem too clingy if that’s what I want?


How do I Tell my Girlfriend I’m Not Ready to Settle Down?

Anthony from Toronto asks…Lava365 Ask the Expert

 My gf of 6 months is already looking to settle down more seriously than I do. She’s a bit fragile and sensitive, what should I say to make sure she doesn’t stay in cloud 9? I like her a lot but I’m still a young guy and don’t see myself doing anything serious for another few years when I have my career all set in stone.


My Girlfriend’s Friends Are Trying to Ruin Our Relationship

Charles from Jacksonville asks…Lava365 Ask the Expert

How do I tell my girlfriend that her friends are trying to sabotage our relationship? Her best friend keeps trying to accuse me of texting and flirting with other girls. I have all kinds of proof on my phone and online messaging with these girls who are JUST friends but if I show every conversation, it’ll only mean I caved in. I don’t want to give her friends the satisfaction of prying into my personal life.
