It Came From The Search Terms: SMARCH

The monthly(ish) roundup of the questions people type into search engines to find this blog. 1. “My partner thinks I have genital warts but I have herpes what do I do?” Both of you should get a full STI screen, if you haven’t already, and talk about whatever you find there.

Guest Post #496: I No Longer Have Pantsfeelings for the Only Partner I’ve Had

[Content note: purity culture] Dear Captain Awkward, I am married. My husband is a very lovely, supportive man, very devoted and considerate, and a great father to our small child. We’ve been together nearly a decade, and married for most of that time. We are a good partnership. He was the first person I ever […]

#464: My mom died and my dad started having sex with men. A LOT of men. Should I talk to him about it?

Dear Captain Awkward, My mom died suddenly and unexpectedly 2 months ago. My parents had been married almost 40 years. A month after her passing, I accidentally discovered that my dad has been sleeping with multiple men he meets on the internet, at the gym, etc., and that he is also having sex in public […]

#431 : I want to have sex for all the wrong reasons.

Hey there, Captain Awkward (or Other Awesome Person), I am currently lucky enough to be dating World’s Most Amazing Guy. We have been dating for over a year, and for the most part we get along great. The one major sticking point in our relationship is this: He wants to wait for marriage to have […]

#383 & #384: Ladyboners

Dear Team Awwkard, Ok so here it is: I’m back at university after having to take time out due to depression and a very bad reaction to meds last year. I have a feeling that the depression was in a large part due to the relationship I was in at the time where my partner […]

#350: Let’s crowdsource some feminist sex ed for frat guys.

Dear Captain Awkward, Due to a current organizing position I hold I have been asked to deliver brief presentations to each of the Greek chapters on my campus discussing the importance of women’s reproductive health issues in the upcoming election and subsequently registering people to vote while perhaps even sneaking in tidbits about safe sex […]

#337: I want her. She wants me. What do I do?

Ahoy, Captain! Maybe this is a pleasant problem to have, but it’s a puzzling one. I’ve been spending a lot of time lately with a woman I find very attractive, trying to figure out whether I want to ask her out or not. We have a lot of interests in common, and do plenty of […]

#317: This crush is really distracting me from my sexless relationship.

 Dear Captain Awkward: I’m a 25-year-old male with a girlfriend of a little over two years. We’ve had our ups and downs over time, but for my recent memory, which probably means the last year, things have been going well. We have a lot of fun together, usually on our own as most of our […]

#309 & #310: The Broken Record

Dear Captain Awkward, I need a second opinion. I’m at my wits end as to how to address something that has become a large problem with my boyfriend. My friends are no, help; I’ve gotten lucky, landed a good, caring boy, how could I have problems, lalalala-I-can’t-hear-you. I’m glad they approve of him, since I […]

#300: My relationship is awesome y/n

Hi Captain & Team Awkward, I’ve been enjoying the site for a while now and have been able to take quite a few pointers from y’all, so thanks!   I guess the shortest way to ask my question is this: What are the green flags in any (budding) relationship?    Best wishes – Looking Forward […]
