If you could have the career of one person (past or present) who it would have to be…..: I would love a career that’s a blend of Chelsea Handler, Andy Cohen, Martha Stewart (without jail) and Oprah.
Does true love exist: Of course it does!
You know you’re in love when….: When you’re on the same page as someone else and you feel like they love you as much as you love them.
Why should someone take your advice on love: I’ve written countless dating articles for elite daily, popsugar and Hello Giggles. I’ve also been single for most of my 20s and went on easily 10,000 hours worth of dates which according to Malcolm Gladwell would make me a dating expert. I also host a dating advice podcast with my former therapist called Asking for a Friend. Which you should listen to on iTunes!

Hey Gabi,
If an ex summer fling told me that he did not see us two being together as a possibility, and is now in a relationship with someone else, why would he now be trying to get my attention and make me jealous while he is still with her a year later? He likes all my selfies I post, comments that I look good, and messages me late at night asking things like why we can’t be friends on snapchat anymore? When we’re both at the bar or a place with mutual friends, he always joins my conversations or bring me into his conversations just to get my attention. If he thinks a relationship between the two of us is not possible because we’re both in separate relationships, why would he even bother with me now if he knows I am with someone and only give him attention because we have mutual friends, so I’m only being civil?

Sincerely,
Not Attention Hungry

Hey Not Attention Hungry,
Sounds like you need to cut this guy out of your life as much as you possibly can. I see the issue with the mutual friends, but he’s not treating you with the respect that a true friend should treat you with. He’s clearly trying to get your attention to validate himself that he can still have you if he wants. Which may not be true, but any time you engage with him, he likely thinks that. You need to draw boundaries with him, perhaps that’s doing things like blocking him on social media or not letting him interrupt your conversations. Be strong girl! You can still be civil and get the space you deserve.

Sincerely,

What’s Up Gabi,
I’m a 25 year old musician living in California. I recently met a woman a few months back at one of my out of town shows. At the show we shared a drink and I didn’t even think about getting her phone number I just got her instagram name and we began to follow each other. Throughout the next couple of months, every time I posted something on IG she ended up liking my post. Last week, I was promoting an upcoming show in her area and direct messaged her inviting her to the show. After the invitation, we messaged each other back in forth getting to know one another finding out that we had a lot in common. This went on for a few days, but when I started asking more questions about her and family, all of sudden she said “Damn what’s this 21 questions?” After that she stopped messaging me back. All I would like to know what I did wrong? how do you get to know someone if you don’t ask questions? and do you know a way that I can reconnect with her and open up our conversations again?

Sincerely,
The Question Master

Hey Question Master,
Sorry that happened to you! Question for you — when you were asking her questions, were you listening to her responses and having a conversation based on her responses or were you just firing off questions? My mom (not to compare you) does that to me and it’s very frustrating. My other idea of what happened, is perhaps she was getting annoying that you were just DMing her and asking her questions instead of asking her out on a proper date. So maybe that could be the solution here. Apologize to her if you asked too many questions, but you have one last one for her: would she be interested in sharing another drink with you next week? And leave it at that. If she doesn’t respond then move on.

Sincerely,
Gabi _MG_0122

Hello Gabi,
I recently moved in with my boyfriend, his best friend, and the best friend’s girlfriend. The girlfriend dumped the best friend and moved out, so now it is just us 3. Both my boyfriend and his best friend have similar jobs, working 30 days, then are off for 30 days. My boyfriend’s work has limited cell service, so spending time with him when he’s home is really important to me. In the past, his best friend and I got along fine. However, as soon as my boyfriend got back last month it seems like his best friend is actively trying to end our relationship. If my boyfriend and I make plans, he tries to invite himself or change them to something only he and my boyfriend would do. He also keeps throwing insults at me, through “jokes” or talking behind my back. He also tries to convince my boyfriend that I’m crazy. I pulled my boyfriend aside and told him how I felt. He said that I was overreacting about the comments, and that he wants to spend more time with me too. My boyfriend and his best friend have been friends for years, and I don’t want to force my boyfriend in a position where he has to choose, but I don’t know how to handle this situation. I’m worried if I’m direct with his best friend, it’ll backfire on me. Please help!

Sincerely,
We’re Not Just Friends

Dear We’re Not Just Friends,
I’m sorry you’re in this situation – this does not seem fun at all! I think what you need to do, is the next time you see your boyfriend’s best friend doing something like you’re describing, i.e. makes plans with him that you can’t be a part of after he’s been away for a while, you need to calmly point it out using “I feel” statements. I think you should talk to your boyfriend’s best friend about how you’re feeling – but I would definitely give your boyfriend a heads up, or have all three of you be present. It also seems like the best friend is just lonely after going through a break-up and which is why he’s hanging on to your boyfriend so much. Was this the situation when we had a girlfriend? Another idea is maybe set your boyfriend’s best friend up on a date?

Sincerely,
Gabi _MG_0134

Hey Ms. Gabi,
I’m 21 and currently dating 3 girls casually, but there is a girl I hung out with a few times from my class last semester who I have a huge crush on. Last semester, we went for lunch and had coffee a few times and we got along incredibly well; whenever we talk it’s like time just flies by. But then after a few times, she kept refusing to go to lunch even though we’d been in the library the entire day together. After that, I just stopped trying and started going out with other girls and sometimes casually talking to her through DM’s and on campus. 2 weeks ago we all decided to go out with our group of friends and she kept passing up advances from all the other guys and she wanted to be the only one in my car with me when we drove to the club.

Needless to say, we started making out at the bar. But I did something stupid; I hinted that I wanted to go back to her apartment and I got rejected. I didn’t text her till 3 days afterwards, but then a mutual friend of ours who is still in her class asked me if I was going to her house party the next day? I wasn’t invited so obviously I said no. Then he sent me a text an hour before the party saying that she asked him if I was coming? I went to the party and everything was fine between us, and there was even an intimate moment, but no sex happened. Later that week, we went to a bar and she just started ignoring me and kept going to that mutual friend of ours. Then I went home at 4 am. She sent me a text at 5 am saying “Text me when you’re home so I can go to sleep, bitch.” Now she’s always hanging out with that mutual friend and everything and I just feel awkward now. I don’t know what to do? I never run after a girl, I mean I’m dating 3 girls (she doesn’t know about them) and the only girl I want to be with is her. Plus everyone knows there’s something between us so maybe she’s scared? I don’t know anymore. Steer me in the right direction.

Sincerely,
Mixed Bag of Emotions

Hey Mixed Bag of Emotions,
I think you need to talk to her. Have an honest conversation with her. Tell her how you feel about her and that you want to date her and see what she says. But if you’re going to date her, you need to drop the other 3 girls you’re seeing and give this an honest shot. I think there could be real potential here! It seems like you both like each other!

Sincerely,
Gabi _MG_0139

Hi Gabi,
I was dating this guy for about a year. I have never felt so good and safe with anyone like I did with him. He treated me like the perfect guy, but I saw that towards the end he was drifting away and then I found out there was someone else like his ex. I should have saw this in the beginning. For all I know he could have been cheating on her with me or dating me while they were on some sort of break. I’m emotional devastated, I really fell for this guy. I start to get upset at the thought of them being together, doing things, and traveling. I’m currently struggling because I’m in grad school and have no time to myself; so all I do is compare myself to his ex and I feel worse and worse about myself. The sad thing is that I have so much going on for me, but I don’t recognize it or see my worth so when things like this in dating happen to me it takes a huge toll on my self-esteem. How do I regain my confidence and start to build a life that I can be proud of so no guy makes me feel this horrible ever again?

Sincerely,
Smart But Scarred

Hey Smart But Scarred,
Ah the ex factor. It never work out! I honestly feel bad for him going back to his ex, they broke up for a reason and I can almost guarantee you that reason isn’t solved. You need to stop thinking about them. No more checking his and her instagrams or social media. STOP IT. Focus on YOU. Do things that make you happy. Spend time with friends. Take yourself out on dates. Treat yourself. Feed your brain. Find a new workout you like. Learn to cook something amazing or teach yourself something you always wanted to learn. Once you 100% focus on you, you will meet someone so fucking spectacular you won’t even think of this loser.

Sincerely,

How’s It Going Gabi?
My girlfriend is a highly popular social media model. I made the mistake of asking her about sex with some of her previous boyfriends (Yes some are big time celebrities) because I was curious. She talked about one celeb that made me feel really confident about myself, but she then started talking about an NBA player who she dated briefly in college and turns out he was much bigger than me in the male department and could work the middle very well, but she didn’t like his size and he always cheated on her. She would then go on to say that I am the best size for her. Now, even though she said she prefers mines or his, it still really bothers me and makes me very insecure because of the fact that I’m not the biggest she’s ever been with. She says I satisfy her perfectly and always orgasms, but now I just always feel like she just telling me that to make me feel great and makes herself orgasm. Should I believe this or is she going to become bored with our sex since she is used to a much bigger penis?

Sincerely,
The D League

Hey D League,
Yes believe her! Size does not matter it’s honestly the fit and any girl who tells you size does matter is lying. The only time size does matter is when it doesn’t fit. I honestly believe in soul penises instead of soul mates and I think your her soul penis. Believe that! Don’t look at the past stay present.

Sincerely,
Gabi
