Proposing Overseas

Dear Miss A,

I’m planning to propose to my girlfriend on our summer vacation. Thing is…we’re going overseas. I don’t want to lose the diamond or have it stolen. I don’t want to put it in my checked luggage, and I’m worried that the metal detector might reveal it if I have it […]

Keeping My Head High

Dear Miss A,

I am a 25 year old female and am single for the first time in 3 years. It’s been kind of tough so far but I’m keeping my head high even if my ex is dating again. I’m not yet ready to date, but would it be bad for my self-esteem […]

Do I Have Enough Money To Get Engaged?

I’m 24 year old male and have been dating my college sweetheart. I work on the Hill and make less than $37,000/year, and next year I am starting law school, so I will be assuming over $100k in debt.That said, I know she’s the one and I want to propose. […]

Are you “The Girl Next Door”, or just simply the girl literally next door?

Dear Miss A,

A guy who I run into and make conversations with in my apartment building invited me to a small get together at his place. I am getting the vibe that he might be a little interested. Would any guy invite a random girl to their place if they had a girlfriend […]

Dear Miss A,

I’ve been dating a guy for a year and I know I want to marry him but I don’t know if he wants to marry me. When do you hold on and build your relationship and when do you break it off and find someone else? I’m 29, no cats.

Public Proposal?

Dear Miss A,

Not sure if you take question from guys, but what does conventional wisdom say about proposing in front of a crowd. I’ve always liked to make a scene, but I don’t want to embarrass my wife. Obviously, it’s not something I can discuss with her. Do many of your clients get […]

Dating After a Long Relationship

Dear Miss A,

I’ve just ended a long relationship and am ready to start dating again! The problem is that I’ve forgotten how. Say I see a cute guy sitting at the bar, or brush past him when we’re out. What’s the most surefire way to get his attention & strike up a great […]

To Shop or Not to Shop Together?


Misha Barton and friend

Dear Miss A,

What do you think about girls “helping” their fiancé pick out an engagement ring, or the more veiled version – having a friend or sister help the guy? My boyfriend is adamant that he wants to pick out the ring all by himself and […]

Upgrading My Wife’s Engagement Ring and Wedding Band

Dear Miss A,

Long story short, I’ve been married for a number of years. When we were married, I was in the military and finishing up law school. I had a lot on my plate and was looking at a deployment. I’m the first to admit that I probably did not put as much […]
