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.

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: 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. It...

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 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: 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: 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?

It is not at all uncommon for a married man to parade his mistress around, especially in front of his friends. Men like to display their trophies to other men, whether it's a new BMW, a job promotion or a hot blonde. Mel Gibson openly displaying Oksana Grigorieva on his arm at various Hollywood events, while his wife sat at home alone, comes to mind. As for what you should do, that's easy: Do nothing. Your friend is old enough to know better, which means that either he doesn't care or he has a death wish.

With our first question this week, we decided to weigh in on an issue that has been very much in the news lately: anal play. First, some background: Hip-hop stars Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa got in a big Twitter feud that started after Khalifa referred to marijuana using the street term "kk. " West mistakenly thought Khalifa was talking about his wife, Kim Kardashian West, and began lobbing insults at Khalifa via social media. Amber Rose, who has been romantically linked to West and was married to Khalifa, jumped in and alluded to a certain type of backdoor action she claimed she used to do to West.

The 2015-2016 Penn Humanities Forum on Sex has sponsored a film series prompting discussions about same-sex marriage, gender-bender fashions and continued gender inequities in corporate boardrooms. Does this mean we're living in a revolutionary era on sex? Daily News romance columnists Steve and Mia decided to seek answers to that question at the recently opened exhibit at the Penn Museum, "Sex: A History in 30 Objects. " We asked them to check out the exhibit, which features artifacts from around the world, and then tell us whether we're currently in a revolution or just the latest version of civilization's eternal obsession with sex. Here's what they had to say: Steve: Professor Heather Love is topic director for the Penn Humanities Forum.

Editor's note: This is a follow-up from last week's column, where a woman asked if she should tell a colleague's wife about her wannabe-cheating husband. We told her to stay out of it. Here's what happened next: Q: That man, my co-worker, he did ask his wife after all - and she proceeded to throw him out of the house. She's divorcing him, too. The "other" woman is no longer interested in him. Now he's sleeping on his brother's couch with no woman at all. Mia, the entire office knew of this, but his wife was clueless until he asked her if he could have an affair.

Q: What an odd request I got. After several dates with a man I like a lot, he asked me to masturbate with him. I'm very attracted to him and would have been happy to make love the regular way, but he said he enjoyed this better. We're in our 30s. While I've read that nearly every man and most women masturbate, isn't it wrong for them to do it together? Why would a guy ask for this? Steve: Does he have a disease? A fear? Or is this just something he prefers? If it's the latter, relax.

Q: I AM A bisexual female, age 25. I've been in a relationship with a man for a year and am feeling the need for a woman again - and wondering, how will I ever commit to marriage? I'd like to settle down and have a family eventually, and this is bugging me. Mia: It sounds like you're obsessing and worrying about something that you aren't even ready for yet. Why not let your heart lead you to what's right for you? Down the road, you may be lucky enough to fall in love with an open-minded individual who doesn't mind your need for another person.

Q: My husband and I've been married for 27 years. We're parents of three and now becoming empty nesters. I'm really enjoying his company, but I don't have any interest in having sex. He seems to be OK with that. Should I be worried? I'm not worried, but if someone else were looking into our situation, they might be. He's a doctor and works like a dog. We are very affectionate and loving with each other. What do you think? Steve: It could be that you're both at the low end of sexual desire.

Q: I'm the heaviest I've ever been because of a previous medical issue. How do I get over feeling self-conscious in the bedroom? My husband's a personal trainer who has sixpack abs and everything. He tells me he loves me and still finds me attractive. He even wants to have sex in the daylight. No! How do I get over myself? Mia: As Nike says, "Just do it. " Also, if it's OK with your doctor, get yourself to the gym. Steve: Be happy as heck your hunky hubby still hungers for you. Try to compromise on what he wants.

Q: I HAVE A QUESTION for you, Steve and Mia: How many partners have you each had? Not that having 1,001 makes one more or less knowledgeable about sex and how to make a relationship work. I have danced a few dances in my life - in fact, I have turned down more women than most men dream of. Again, it does not prove anything. Hot sex lasts as long as one or the other person wants it to. And what is hot for one may not be for another. I am assuming that most of your readers are quite young and with limited experience, based on what I have read.

Q: MY EX used to hoist me up on his shoulders during oral sex and make crazy love to me all night long, but then wouldn't call me for weeks. I found a used condom in the trash the last time I was at his apartment and it wasn't from me and him. Meanwhile the new guy I'm dating is socially awkward and shy but very reliable. We've been dating for six months but we haven't done more than kiss. He seems kind of timid. I watch him walk to his car after he takes me home and he looks scared.

Q:I'm involved with a man whose sex drive is getting on my nerves. He wants it on the floor, the table, the chair, etc. I told him I am most comfortable in bed and am tired of rug burns and backaches. When I say that, he gets all distant and ignores me. What's my next step? Steve: Step? Like the steps to your bedroom? Or the basement steps? Are they carpeted? How about the ceiling? Mia: Girl, buy yourself a few faux-fur throw rugs and get on that floor. A lot of women would kill to have a guy like yours.
