Kimberley Hibbert | Monday, August 18, 2014    

IN the popular song Same Script Different Cast, Whitney Houston warns Deborah Cox about the perils of dating her no-good ex. Cox, on the defensive, opts to block out Houston's advice and continues the romance, as she is sure her relationship will last, unlike Houston's. Would you warn your ex's new paramour about his dirty habits? Many women say no, as not all women will listen and some may even see it as a form of jealousy.

IN this highly sexed era, not many women are saving themselves for marriage. In fact, the concept of virgins in their 20s is so rare that cable giant MTV has documented the anomaly in a new series — Virgin Territory — which focuses on a range of 20-something virgins as they grapple with deciding when to alter their status. Even if women opt to wait because of religious beliefs or otherwise, by the late 20s to early 30s many cave, as the idea of being an older virgin doesn't sit wel ... Read More

By KIMBERLEY HIBBERT | Monday, August 18, 2014    

Signs your girlfriend is crazy

MANY men will tell their new women about their crazy exes, and in some cases the description is unjustified, as men's actions often cause otherwise sane women to snap. But in other instances the description fits to a T, as explained by the men below. Psychologists often filter 'crazy' behaviour into one of several different categories — like bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder (BPD) — which are marked by problems with regulating emotions and thoughts, hot and cold i ...

I want to clear my record

Dear Mrs Macaulay, In July of 1992, my sister was in a fight with a woman. I was 17 at the time. Upon hearing the news, I ran to where the fight was and there I saw persons trying to stop the fight. They were beating each other with spoons (my sister had a wooden spoon and the other woman had a big aluminium spoon). My brother held on to my sister while someone else was holding the other woman. However, the woman got free and ran over to my sister. I held on to the woman but was thrown aside be ... Read More

He makes me happy and the sex is great but... yawn

With Wayne Powell MA Counselling Psychology Relationship Counsellor | Monday, August 18, 2014    

Dear Counsellor, I am a confused 28-year-old. I want to know whether I should stay or leave my boyfriend. The relationship started off on a lie about his age and profession.

He makes me happy and the sex is great. We've been together for the past three years. Financially things are very slow. I know w ... Read More
