Religion, relationships, and post-Hopkins plans

By ASKMANI | January 31, 2013

Dear AskMani, I used to be a Christian but I think I have become an atheist. I still want to go church but I don’t know what to do. Sincerely, Losing Faith

Dear Losing Faith, I think you should consult your Pastor. He or she can guide you and help you with the root of this issue.

Dear AskMani, How do I get my boyfriend to respect me? Sincerely, MissTreated

Dear MissTreated, Start by respecting yourself, and let him know what your expectations are. If he doesn’t want to meet them then you should rethink being in the relationship.

Dear AskMani, I’m a senior and I feel like I’ve wasted the last four years of my life. I picked a major (Applied Math) that I dislike and I’m not sure what to do. Sincerely, Unapplied Math.

Dear Unapplied Math, Have you talked to your department advisor about this? Perhaps your advisor can help you use your major in a way that is more suitable to your interests.

Dear AskMani, I really want a boyfriend but I haven’t gotten one yet and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Sincerely, Longing for Love

Dear Longing For Love, The fact that you REALLY want a boyfriend may be part of the issue. If guys can tell that you’re desperate, they will use you or won’t even consider you. Focus your attention on something more productive. Take care of yourself inside and out and it won’t be long before someone takes an interest in you.
