Love me not
I have a friend and I know he loves me but he never accepts it. He never proposed but gets jealous if I hang around with other guys. What to do?

This is a very common situation. You haven’t mentioned about his background so I have no way of knowing whether he has been burnt in an earlier relationship which is making him phobic about entering into a new one. One thing you can do is not be so “available”. My advice would be to start seeing other people and when he calls, occasionally tell him you’re busy or going out. Maybe that will snap him out of the “we’re just friends” routine. The bottom line is - you need to take care of you. I would ideally let him make the first move. He’s scared of something and he has to deal with whatever that is before he would be ready for anything deeper. Don’t worry about the future. Handle the present well and all will be good!

I’m the third girl child. My parents had always wanted a boy. I’m in 10th standard and feel very unhappy with the way I’m sometimes treated by my family. How to cope?
Don’t be so upset. I was born 7 years after my elder sister. And apparently my mother was so shattered that she cried all day and didn’t see me for 11 hours! I can surely vouch, time changes everything. Be confident and thank God that YOU were born! Keep your head held high, concentrate on your grades, your future and be a good human being. Problems are to be faced or avoided carefully. Try and spend more time at some relatives or friend’s house to ensure absolute peace of mind. Concentrate on building a brighter tomorrow and I’m confident, the dark clouds will disappear soon. Cheer up girl! We ROCK :)
I’m from New York, doing my Ph.D. I’m in a relationship with a software engineer. My parents liked him. But after my parents met his parents all hell broke loose as they practice black magic! They insist I leave him. His parents adore me and I don’t know what to do!
Assuming you both love each, my strong recommendation would be to let it be and let it settle with time. You never know what the future holds and there is no point starting a war now. Best is to let everyone speak what they want and you do what makes you happy. Settle abroad, prosper and let the relationship grow stronger. Concentrate on building your career and let love take care of the odds. Best wishes.
