DEAR MINERVA,

It seems to me recently that there are no stars left who aren't getting criticized for something that they have been accused of doing, saying, or supporting. I can't even watch old movies without being disappointed in how backward things were. I feel too informed and too pissed off to relax.…

Dear Minerva,

Thank you for your advice in "Friend or Faux Pas" (1/23/19). Especially the parting thought. It was thoughtful and maybe I could be more so.…

Dear Minerva,

I cut my mom out of my life because she was toxic. Many family members tell me that I should make peace with her, that it's my mom. So I tried and it has just gotten worse.…

Dear Minerva,

My boyfriend and I started our relationship talking freely about our sexual past. I experienced jealousy at times, but maintained that I'd rather speak frankly with one another. A few months ago I mentioned something about an ex's size that made him uncomfortable.…

DEAR MINERVA,

I'm expecting a baby in May. We decided not to find out the sex of the baby. We are stuck between names. We have "Paxton" or "Callum" with the middle name "Jamison" for a boy.…

Dear Minerva,

I was very happy for a long time. Then things fell apart. My boyfriend and I broke up.…

DEAR MINERVA,

I am a gay man who had a lot of fun in my 20s. Now that I am 30, which so many people consider "gay dead," I don't know what to do. How do I deal with life after 30?

Miss Minerva,

I'm blessed with a broad circle of friends, including my inner circle: kind, compassionate people who know me intimately. I occasionally host parties for which I try to curate the right group of people. Sometimes these parties are larger affairs for the broader circle.…

DEAR MINERVA,

I have had the pleasure of catching a few shows where you were doing stand-up comedy and I was wondering what you think of the whole Kevin Hart thing. My friends and I all have different opinions about it and I thought maybe you could give me some perspective.

-Sincerely, Curious in !A

Dear Minerva,

My husband and I just bought a beautiful home here in Boise and we are over-the-moon about settling in. We are an "odd couple" and have different tastes in almost everything. We haven't started digging deep into the decorating process yet, but I am already worried about the clash of wills.…

Dear Minerva,

I have never had a close family. My parents didn't get along well with their families and because of that, I was pretty much isolated from my extended family from a young age. I have five siblings, two of which are dead.…

Dear Minerva,

I've always intimidated other women. I've always known what I want and I've gone out and done it. I'm well-educated, successful in my field and proud of my family.…

Dear Minerva,

About a year ago I met a girl online and we started chatting. This led to us meeting and developing a relationship. The last few months have been difficult and she recently sent me a text breaking up with me. A text!…

Dear Minerva,

I've been experiencing tension with my family over the last six months. I rent a three-bedroom house from my father, and when my brother moved back to Boise, he allowed my brother and his girlfriend to move into the house. Things were fine for the first month and a half, but then suddenly my brother reverted back to being the sophomoric jerk he was when were teenagers.…

DEAR MINERVA,

I have had the same hairdresser for 10 years. She is amazing. She knows my hair, knows what I like, and always does great work.…

DEAR MINERVA,

I recently had an event commemorating the end of a period in my life. It was a great celebration. I received many gifts from different people.…

DEAR MINERVA,

After moving far away from home and from my friends, I am regretting it all. I'm a young person, and I thought that getting away from home was the next step in a happy life. On the contrary, I'm unhappy where I'm at, and I find myself thinking about all the fun times I had back home and could have if I moved back.…

DEAR MINERVA,

My boyfriend is exploring his feminine side in the bedroom with me. I don't mind if he wants to wear makeup and use butt plugs. But now he's talking about waxing his eyebrows and legs. A more permanent exploration.…

Dear Minerva,

I keep getting non-stop telemarketer calls on my phone. They've even spammed my number so it looks like I'm calling others and even looks like I've called myself. I even had one use a dead relative's number, which was very upsetting.…

Dear Minerva,

If I occasionally enjoy having a lady join in the fun with my boyfriend and I, does that make me "bisexual" or just "bi-curious?" I seem to be straddling some sort of line. I do love a woman's body and thoroughly enjoy these encounters.…

DEAR MINERVA,

My long-time boyfriend and I are finally tying the knot. We're excited for our big day and have so many ideas. We both have large families and a lot of friends.…

DEAR MINERVA,

So here's the deal - my boyfriend has asked me to try pegging with him. I'm excited and terrified as I don't want to hurt him, but I also prefer to be the sub in the bedroom. I dominate every area of my life; the bedroom is my refuge where I know I'm not in control.…
