It's Caller Day! Today's lovely caller, Emily, is at her wit's end. Her boyfriend still lives with his ex, and while he has his reasons, she's wondering how patient she should be.

Come join us in…

It's Q&A time! We're back, answering YOUR burning questions! Does "The Ick" speak to good instincts or just being overly picky? Should we trust that if a man wants to make a move, he will?

It's Caller Day! Today's lovely caller, Kelsey, introduces us to a popular new term (Platonic Life Partner, or "PLP"), redefining what one's "soulmate" might look like.

It's Q&A time! We're back, answering YOUR burning questions! Is it wrong to fantasize about other people if you're in a committed and happy partnership?
