Got a relationship problem? Jason Godfrey, our man about town, is here to help.

I’ve realised that my fiance is following loads of #sexygirls Instagram accounts, which I find unacceptable. I caught him checking them out on his phone and it makes me feel insecure.

If this freaks you out, you’d better not check out what he’s browsing on the Internet when you’re not around. Hint: It rhymes with corn and starts with a “p”. This is a tough one.

Sexy girls on Instagram are the new bikini calendars. There’s nothing “wrong” with it. It’s not porn.

But then… it sort of is, and it’s clearly not nice if your guy is perving on other girls.

By the way, perving on the opposite sex is something guys have been doing since time immemorial, and they’ll continue to do so. Share your feelings with your man and tell him that you understand he has to “perv out”, but maybe he could be a little more discreet about it.

Otherwise, you can start following #shirtlessguys on Instagram, and see how that makes him feel.

My boyfriend is loving and caring, but he’s kinda boring. I miss the exciting times with my ex. Do you think this current relationship is for the long haul?

The grass is always greener when you’re running naked with your ex – that’s a famous Greek saying. Or maybe I just made it up.

It’s easy to be bored by the normalcy of it all when you’re in a relationship. But normalcy is great. Normalcy is normal.

In any relationship it’s tempting to blow it all up and get back with the exciting ex, or the exciting guy from work, or even the moderately exciting food delivery guy, but that’s a cop-out.

Making a relationship work means finding a way to be happy after all the bells and whistles of the new guy have faded, and you’re left with nights of Netflix and passing out on the couch.

So think it through. If your malaise has something to do with your current guy, try to remember this: Every relationship ends up with the two of you on the couch watching Netflix.

My Reading Room


There’s the guy that girls love to love but hate to fall for – the player.

The cute rogue who’s cool, and woos all the ladies and charms them with his charisma.

One of the keys to a successful relationship isn’t being with someone whom everyone wants to sleep with. This is the conundrum of dating the player.

But are players even relationship material?

Sure, they are. Everyone wants a relationship. Eventually.

And it’s all about the timing. A player could hook up with a great girl after a great girl after a great girl, only to settle down with some girl no one thinks is at his level – and it’s not about the girl.

It’s about the timing.

Being a player is tiring. While the player has energy to play the game, you’d better believe he’s gonna play it.

Once a guy gets tired of the game, once he wants a more serious relationship, or once he’s tired of dealing with a plethora of STDs (just saying, who knows?), he’ll be off to Planet Normal to look for a nice girl to settle down with.

Still want to hook up with a player? Look for one on the downswing of roguehood. That is: a player with a fast-approaching gut, or impending baldness, or one who confesses that he’s tired of popping antibiotics (for his chlamydia, or whatever), because that’s a player who’s looking for a keeper, and you just might be that girl for him.
