Dear Dumbs

Dear Dumbs,

“I hate to call you “Dumb” because of your successful relationship and your funny wisdom. Even though I’m 70 years old, I think you can help me. As I said, I’m 70 and I’ve been married for 51 years. Let me just say it: I married an asshole, and I’ve known it for quite some time. He loves the swinger lifestyle and to appease him I’ve tried it a few times. I felt gross. Even though I told him it’s not for me, it’s all he wants and I’m over it. Would I look like a hypocritical jerk for kicking …

Dear Dumbs,

Dear Dumbs, My mom listens to your show, and I’d like to get an answer from you. I’m Stan and I’m 15 years old. I don’t have any brothers or sisters, and I think that’s why my parents are so protective. I’m not allowed to date yet. The rule is not set in stone, but it’s pretty clear that mom and dad don’t think I’m ready. I have a new friend who has a hot sister who is 14 years old, and I think I love her. I’m sorry for using you to bring this up to my mom, but …

Dear Dumbs,

  Please be gentle with me. I just reread my email and I sound like an idiot. I’m in love with my best friend. His name is Scott and he has two beautiful boys. He’s a very good father, but he can’t seem to get a hold of his finances. His friend Mark does his taxes and balances his checkbook. He has severe ADHD, and it comes into play in every aspect of his life. He and I dated a couple of years ago, but he cheated on me. I stopped talking to him for over a year, and we’ve …

Dear Dumbs,

Finally on YouTube, I see. Congrats! I really love the visual addition to the show. I’m a 36-year-old gay man, and I’ve always had straight women come onto me. It happens all the time. Granted a lot of these women have no idea I’m gay until they push it too far and then I have to out myself. On quite a few occasions they didn’t take the news too well, and I never saw them again. But more often than not they seem to try harder. Terry, you wouldn’t believe what they do and the offers I get. I’ve told …

Dear Dumbs,

Dear Dumbs, Happy New Year and thank you for all the shows and advice. It’s now my turn to be on the receiving end. My husband passed 14 months ago after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Soon after he passed I invited my sister to come live with me as it would benefit both of us. She’s a wonderful soul, and I’m grateful to have her in my life. I have been on a few dates since my husband passed. It’s awkward and strange, but I have to admit it feels good to get attention on a human and physical …

Dear Dumbs,

Dear Dumbs,   First, let me say that I love your podcast and sound advice. I was hoping that I would never need it, yet here I am. I’ve been married now for 14 years, and until recently I thought it was a good one. I’m going to give you her real name because I’m pissed: Her name is Paris. Paris has been acting strange for the past six or so months. She’s been doing what I would call sneaky behavior. She now has her phone on her at all times, and she asked me out of the blue what …

Dear Dumbs,

Dear Dumbs, I’m a 44-year-old single woman, and I have a bit of a situation. A little about me first. I have a great job, I take care of myself, and I don’t want to sound egotistical, but I have never had a problem attracting men. I’ve been seeing a guy for a year now. Physically he’s not usually what I go for. But his personality challenged me so he has my interest. He doesn’t treat me the way other men have in the past. Most of them fall in love really quick and this guy played it really cool …

Dear Dumbs,

My mom listens to your podcast a lot. She told me I should listen as well saying “it’s a great example of how a healthy relationship can be.” Thanks for all the laughs and inspiration, for it’s inspiration I need. I’m 17 years old and my uncle got me a job at his dentist office. I basically answer the phones. I do a good job, but I’m afraid to tell everyone involved I want more in life. I’m very outgoing and love to laugh with my friends. What I want to do is go to college and get into the …

Dear Dumbs,

Dear Dumbs, I listen to your podcast every Monday. Thank you for putting yourselves out there. You’re doing good in a lighthearted way. I have a pretty big issue. It’s so big I’m using an alias to protect everyone involved. My husband was in a toxic marriage for 11 years. It was so bad that he made the horrible decision of hiring a prostitute to help him through his “dark period.” His previous wife had cheated on him, and he felt that was a way to even the score. He told me this while we were dating, and I thought …

Dear Dumbs,

Dear Dumbs, I really love your podcast. I now look forward to Monday, so thank you. Could you do a few more a week? That’s a serious question. Now to my real question. I’m an attractive 45-year-old traveling nurse. I absolutely love my job, but the only way to make any money is to travel from town to town. I’ve found ways to enjoy that aspect, but it has taken a toll on maintaining any sort of lasting romantic relationship. I get asked out a lot and I do go. I’ve met some interesting men, but understanding the gravity of …
