I’ve been in a long-distance relationship for about a year now. While things haven’t gotten bad yet, I want to make sure they don’t. Do you have any advice on how to keep things going?
It really depends on what kind of long-distance relationship it is. If you have plans to be in the same place eventually, then it's absolutely worth working on things to keep them healthy. But if this is just one of those deals where the two of you are in different places and plan to stay that way, then it may be worth assessing whether or not this is something you really want.
Plenty of people who find themselves in long-distance relationships are fearful of intimacy and thus end up hooking up with people who they'll never have to deal with on a day-to-day level; their dates have all the drama and highs and lows of the beginning of a relationship with few of the mundane situations that are part of dating someone in the same town.
Assuming this is someone you're sure you want to be with for the right reasons, try to make sure you see each other as often as possible and talk on the phone regularly. Relying on texting and emailing is a recipe for disaster because typed words don’t carry the nuances and subtleties we relay when we speak and there's thus leave a lot of room open for misinterpretation.
I’ve got a question about piercings. I’ve heard the Prince Albert is quite good for the ladies. I was just wondering if you girls have an opinion?
Well, I've only been with one guy who had one of those and he'd already taken the ring out. But I've certainly heard (from him and others) that it can improve sex for women because the ring brushes up against the clitoris (it's also said to improve oral sex for men) but it can also be painful if your penis is long enough to hit the cervix.
For the most part, Prince Albert's and other male piercings are associated with gay rather than straight men (as an aside, I did always suspect that the guy I knew with one was gay for completely unrelated reasons). And just in case you needed any more information to convince you not to do it, some men complain that it's quite painful and causes them to have to pee sitting down.
