I have been hurt many times by men in my life . I am now ready to find one good man to love forever . I've been looking online and a man on one site caught my attention with his looks and his profile . The problem is , he doesn't seem to be checking his emails .
Do you know how I could find him ? I listed what little information I had on Craigslist , hoping someone would recognize him , but no luck . This may be my lost love . Do you have any suggestions for finding him ?
Needs a Man
Dear Needs a Man,
It is quite possible this man isn't responding to your emails because he is not interested . You are dangerously close to being a stalker. Please stop searching for this particular guy . Consider other men who might have more potential if you back off and give them time to get to know you .
Dear MAXY ,
My daughter is 10 years old and she is starting the process of puberty . My daughter is extremely shy and I am afraid that her classmates will make fun of her . How can I ensure her transition will be smooth and with minimal turbulence .
Becoming a Lady
Dear Becoming a Lady,
Many children are beginning puberty at your daughter's age . It can be difficult making the transition into a young lady from a little girl . It is also true that other children can sometimes be cruel when they notice changes in their friends .
There is no failsafe way to ensure a smooth transition into womanhood . You can support your daughter by talking to her about the changes in her body and teaching her how to take care of herself . Let your daughter know that she can ask you anything and you will do your best to answer .
Help her select loose-fitting clothes that will make her body changes less noticeable . Talk to her pediatrician about other ways to support her . There is a wonderful book called "What's Happening To Me" ? An Illustrated Guide to Puberty , By Peter Mayle.
