    Readers, itís time to say goodbye

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    Well actually, this edition of The Naked Truth is really addressed to my beloved readers and followers because this is, sadly, my very last column entry.

    Trust is a big factor in our relationship

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I was wondering if you can elaborate a little more. I read your articles quite a bit but one, ďWhat can I do if my man is paranoid?Ē, is what I most relate to at the moment. I am in a similar predicament, although I havenít...

    Is it time to call quits on relationship?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    When is enough, enough? Some people leave at the first signs of trouble and others stay through years of tears. How do you know when it is time to call it quits with no regrets, doubts, guilt, or feeling like you are a...

    My girl seeks attention online

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I have been living with my girlfriend for a few months. At first it was good but now she is being so inconsiderate of my feelings.

    When I try to tell her how I feel about things that come up...

    I want to know where I stand

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I want to have a serious conversation with my lady friend about our relationship. I donít want to come across too strong or too desperate, but I would like to know where we stand. In the past, it has always been the female to...

    Sep 13, 2017 8:00 am

    How do I ask for paternity test?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I am a man who can admit that I have a fear of commitment. I could say that is because I have been hurt in the past or that I like to be free and keep my options open with different women, but none of that...

    Sep 11, 2017 8:00 am

    What can I do if my man is paranoid?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    My man is really starting to get on my nerves. He is so paranoid about other men. We canít even go out and enjoy ourselves without him questioning me about every guy who I speak to or who looks at me for...

    Should I give up my job for my boyfriend?

    Dear Dr. Nekia,

    I fear that my boyfriend and I are going to break up. We are arguing a lot lately over my job. You see, I work late nights sometimes and it requires out-of-office work with clients who are generally...

    Aug 30, 2017 8:00 am

    Why canít men stay with one woman?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I do not know one woman whose man has not cheated or is not cheating. Do all men cheat? Why is it so hard for them to be faithful? Should we women just accept the fact that men cannot just be happy with one...

    Are single moms to blame for bad boys?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    With all the talk of what is going on in our community, do you think that single mothers really are to blame? I hear so many negative things being said about single moms ó who struggle to raise boys the best they know how ó...

    Grumpy partner is getting me down

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    The man I am dating is always stressed. Even when things seem to go right for him, he is unhappy. As you can imagine, this takes a toll on our relationship as he gets moody and doesnít feel like doing...

    Full of guilt after second-date sex

    Finding myself after break-up

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I was recently in a long-term relationship and am having to rebuild my life over. I gave ten years to that relationship and I really thought that she was the one.

    We have both moved on and I am cool...

    My husband wants me to pay half the bills

    Dear Dr. Nekia,

    Aug 7, 2017 8:00 am

    Am I too trusting of my husband?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I do not always know where my husband is. Sometimes he comes home from work on time and sometimes he comes home a bit later. On the weekends he has been known to just get up and get dressed and walk out the door without a...

    Aug 2, 2017 8:00 am

    Is oral sex outside of my marriage cheating?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I am a married man who casually sees other women besides my wife. I do not want anything from them except for oral sex. My wife and I share a beautiful marriage together but she is not too happy about...

    Iím fed up with attention when out running

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I have finally motivated myself to start working out. I go sometimes mornings and sometimes evenings for a brisk walk or run. The trouble is that I get unwanted attention. It is hot out so I wear breathable...

    Motivate him but donít bend your back

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I have always been the type of woman who can hold her own and take care of herself. And I also donít mind being able to help my man too. In fact I enjoy doing so. But I keep finding myself in relationships...

    Manhood is not defined by control over a woman

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I saw a video on social media that said scientists have found women can carry the DNA from every man they sleep with. Also, that DNA can mix with the DNA of her current partner if she gets pregnant. This means that his child...

    Jul 17, 2017 8:00 am

    How do I keep my work and professional life seperate?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    My question may be a bit out of the norm but what I wanted to know is how do you keep your professional life separate from your love life?

    I am a psychologist and at times I find it difficult not to bring work home...

  • I am no longer attracted to my spouse
    Jul 12, 2017 8:00 am

    I am no longer attracted to my spouse

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I am no longer attracted to my husband. I try to be, but Iím just not. I think that he is beginning to notice it because I avoid any of his attempts at intimacy. Is it normal to just wake up one day and not find your spouse...

    Me and my boyfriend are inseparable

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    My man and I spend all our free time together. His friends tease him, and my friends are getting angry with me, saying that they are tired of him tagging along everywhere. I enjoy his company and he enjoys mine. I do not like...

  • Do women place too much importance on their looks?
    Jul 4, 2017 8:00 am

    Do women place too much importance on their looks?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    My question is a pretty simple one. Do you believe that the average woman places too much of her self-worth on her ability to attract men? Most would deny it, but Iíve watched women transform themselves to follow celebrities...

  • Allow new woman to have a say
    Jul 3, 2017 8:00 am

    Allow new woman to have a say

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I am dating this woman and, ever since things got serious between us, she keeps telling me what I am doing wrong as a father. It is annoying as hell. I tell her that she is overstepping her bounds and that my son is mine, not...

    Married life has been a disappointment

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I got married recently, three months after my mom passed. We then moved into our new place, away from my dad and sister who needed me the most during our very difficult time.

    I thought marriage would make dealing with...

  • Surviving your midlife crisis
    Jun 14, 2017 8:00 am

    Surviving your midlife crisis

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    Is midlife crisis a real thing? For example, when someone wants to explore new relationships when nothing is wrong with the marriage they have. Does it have something to do with looking for validation from others outside the...

    Trapped in a world of sexual make-believe

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    My husband and I have always enjoyed a pretty healthy sex life but last year things began to change. He became less interested in sex and blamed it on stress and being tired from work. I accepted this but I began to question...

  • When is the best time for sex?
    Jun 5, 2017 8:00 am

    When is the best time for sex?

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I am one of those women involved with an unavailable man. Well, he is available to me but he is in a relationship with someone else. I read your reasons for why women settle for sharing a man, but I did not...

  • Itís hard to trust or respect women
    May 31, 2017 8:00 am

    Itís hard to trust or respect women

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    Why does it seem like so many single women are so content being side pieces? It is like they are proud to be ďthe other womanĒ.

    This makes it very difficult to trust or respect women and, even though I may want to...

    Iím pregnant, but donít know who the dad is

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    Iím pregnant and I do not know who the father is. I have been seeing someone regularly, and another guy on and off for the past year. I like them both, but things seem to be progressing with one more than it is with the...

    My manís too small to satisfy me

    Dear Dr Nekia,

    I am dating a man whoís penis is just too small for me. He is a good guy and he treats me very well, but sexually I am not satisfied. I really do not want to have to break things off with him because of this one flaw.
