Q: This guy and I took a break from our relationship. During that time, we had no contact with each other. No texting or anything. But still, I felt like we were together. Anyway, after two months, we got back together. We talked about it, and he told me he had sex with one of his guy friends. He said it happened just once and that he's not gay. But I can't get the idea of him being with another man out of mind. I try to get him to talk about it but he won't. Mia: Technically, it's not cheating if you're on a break and one of you has sex with another person.

Q: I'm in my early 20s and working at my first job. When I started, I was told numerous times by friends and others to avoid interoffice dating. But of course, on my first day there, I noticed a beautiful brunette girl. We ended up dating, and she admitted that she had recently dated another guy in the office, that things had ended badly and that he had certain . . . ahem . . . sensitive pictures of her. He wouldn't leave her alone, so she was forced to go to HR, and he was moved to a separate part of the company.

What's trendy to nibble when you're tired of tapas? At Mia's, the new restaurant at the Warwick Hotel, they're touting novel noshes they call mezzano. The Italian word, which translates as "middle," originated with early spice traders as a term to describe the cuisines of their Middle Eastern and Mediterranean neighbors. That tells you the background of the foods displayed on Mia's 25-foot-long bar. If the bar isn't crowded - and it wasn't at the time of my late lunch - you can walk up and down casing the goodies that are lined up there in big, colorful bowls.

T HE HOLIDAYS pose a dilemma for lovers, regardless of whether your romance is new or long-standing. What is an appropriate gift? Will my partner misunderstand my intentions? Is it too early in our relationship to buy a sexy gift? We asked romance columnists Steve and Mia to help guide you through.   Steve: So, Mia, what's the sexiest holiday gift you ever received? Mia: Lingerie. But it was from a boyfriend that I wasn't into. It weirded me out. How about you?

Q: I have been with my fiancée for almost six years. We were engaged and moved into a house a few months ago. Now she says she needs time and space to figure things out. Do I give her time? If so, how much? Steve: I suspect there's a specific reason for her cold feet. Find out what it is. Mia: If things drag on too long, it's not as if you have to sit around and wait for Miss Thing to make up her mind. You need to be living your life, and if that includes dating other honeys, then so be it. Don't be sneaky about it, though.

Q After 10 years of marriage, my husband and I have divorced. I'm in my 40s and wonder what kind of men are out there and how easy it is to find one for a serious relationship. Your thoughts? Steve: As Meg said in "The Big Chill," "They're either married or gay. And if they're not gay, they've just broken up with the most wonderful woman in the world. Or they've just broken up with a bitch who looks exactly like me. " Mia: If you're a vibrant 40-something woman, you'll do just fine in the dating market.

Q: I've been dating a woman for about a year now and we're headed toward marriage. Everything is nearly perfect except in one area: Cooking. My love enjoys cooking but is terrible at it. I have suffered in silence - it's usually only once a week - but if we marry, I can't imagine spending my life eating her cooking. I'm not very good at it myself, but I can make meals that are edible, at least. She really enjoys being in the kitchen, and I know she'd be crushed if I told her how bad her cooking is. I don't want to mess this up. Any solutions?

Q: If my first boyfriend from 40 years ago e-mailed me and sent me his phone number and told me to call, should I have called him? I've talked to him twice in 40 years. I didn't feel comfortable calling him. It has a lot to do with all of the rejection I've had all my life. At some point, you just give up. Mia: Miss talking to him, don't you? Don't play games, call that man, do it today. He'll be glad to hear from you. As for your man baggage, dump it. If you don't, you'll never find happiness in a relationship.

Q: My significant other and I have been seeing each other for 12 years. After six years of great sex, she started pulling back. She referred to my petting as grabbing. She never really liked to kiss. Then she stopped having intercourse. I consider myself a touchy-feely man, and I miss the closeness. I've stayed with her hoping that she would change, but she hasn't. I am 73 years old. She is 64, attractive and physically active and takes care of her health. She refuses to seek counseling.

Q: I'm a 40-year-old married man and, not to boast, I'm a fairly good husband. I do all the cooking and food-shopping, have a full-time career, help with the laundry, all the outside jobs, take the kids to school, etc. I shower my wife with affection, waking her up in the morning with backrubs, telling her regularly how hot she looks, spontaneously giving her hugs and kisses in the kitchen . . . and yet, none of that is ever initiated by her.

Q: Why won't my wife have sex with me when I want to? She doesn't like to have sex in the morning and that's the only time I'm ready. Mia: You may be raring to go at 5 a.m., but she may not be ready to deal with your morning breath before the sun rises. Male and female sex hormone levels rise and fall at different times of the day. With flexibility you can overcome that. But you need to be creative. If she wants sex at night but you're too tired, try exercising after work to see if that gives you more energy.

Q: My ex and I have been broken up for more than a month. We just don't get along any more. We agreed to meet only to exchange some clothes and stuff, and the next thing I know we were on the floor of my apartment doing it like we were crazy. Now, I can't stop thinking about him. He's a liar and a cheat, but I can't get him out of my mind and my heart. What should I do? Mia: Isn't hate-sex hot? All that clothes-ripping and rolling around the floor can make for some mind-blowing orgasms.

Q: I am a 50-something, physically fit individual with a good job - and a question concerning my girlfriend of almost four years. She is the love of my life, and I am committed to making her my wife in the near future. She is in her late 40s and very attractive. My only "hang-up," for lack of a better term, is her breasts. I have always been a boob guy. We all know what happens with age and gravity. I would love for her to have breast augmentation, and I would even pay for it. But I am really nervous to ask her about it. I don't want to hurt her feelings, make her feel insecure about her chest or hold it against me if I were to ask. What are your thoughts on this?

Q: My girlfriend is bisexual and occasionally sleeps with other women, and I'm cool with that. But she just asked me if it's OK if she sleeps with another man. I'm not sleeping with anyone else. I just haven't felt the need. I'm not OK with her sleeping with a man. I'm thinking about telling her, but I don't want her to feel like I'm taking her freedom. Mia: Dude, if you don't want her to sleep with another guy, you're going to have to walk. It's not your place to try to be her prison warden.

Q: I've been celibate for six years or more, since perimenopause/menopause. Can't remember the last time I had sex. What can I do about it? I turn 50 in September. Mia: Have you been to the doctor and been declared otherwise healthy? If so, stop acting like an old lady. It's time to get a boyfriend and start enjoying life again. Get rid of the gray - everywhere. Ditch the granny panties and buy sexy lingerie. Watch steamy movies, post an online dating profile and get back in the game of life.

Q: I recently met a guy who is perfect for me in many ways. He has a great personality and a good job, so he would be a good provider. We kiss a lot and he says he really likes me. But he's about 50 pounds overweight and on the weekends walks around in these awful cargo shorts drinking beer. We haven't had sex yet. Why? When I think of him naked and coming at me with beer breath, I get turned off. How can I tell him nicely that he needs to lose weight and clean up his act before things get physical between us?

Q: I've met a number of people through online dating services, and things usually start off well then just go downhill. After four or five dates, the woman calls it off. I can never get a straight answer on what I'm doing wrong. Why won't they just be honest? Steve: Most people hate breaking up, and if they were frank about the reasons, they feel that it would hurt you even more. But honesty ("You smell," "I hate your beard," "Your taste in music sucks") is best, no matter how hurtful.

Q: I got bit during oral sex. Even after I pulled away and complained, he did it again. Things didn't go any farther than that. I never heard from him again. What would make him do that? Steve: Maybe he was hungry for your love. Mia: He's an idiot who doesn't know anything about all of the nerve endings down there and how sensitive things are. Don't let him get close enough to get a nibble in again. Q: My boyfriend calls himself "daddy" and me "mama" when we're in bed. He says things like, "Does mama like it when daddy -----?"

Q: My father-in-law, who lives with us, asked me if my husband and I were having sex because he said he hadn't heard any noises coming from our bedroom. I was caught off guard and didn't answer him. Ever since, I've felt uncomfortable when my husband and I are making love in our bedroom. I feel like my father-in-law is listening at the door. He's disabled and can't afford to live on his own. I resent him being in my house all day snooping on our sex lives. How should I handle this? I want to put him out, but my husband wouldn't stand for it.  Mia: Find a senior-citizen apartment that he can move into.

The South Jersey high school senior whose repeated attempts to take a "selfie" Monday with President Obama in Camden captured the Internet's attention has a very simple explanation for her persistence. "I had to try to get a good one for Instagram," 18-year-old Julia Cappelli said Tuesday. How else to let friends know you'd met the leader of the free world? "I knew no one would believe me, so I was, like, 'I have to get a selfie, I need proof of this,' " she said, as video and GIFs of her attempts to grab the perfect photo bounced around the Internet.
