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.

Q: My wife and I have been married for five years. We're in our mid-30s. I recently discovered that she has been viewing lesbian porn on our shared home computer. I was stunned. Our sex life is pretty good, but I feel there is plenty for me to be concerned about. Why wasn't my wife comfortable in sharing this with me? Is it possible that deep inside she may be dangerously close to trying a woman? Is it normal for women to fantasize about other women? How should I deal with this issue?

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: 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: 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 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: Why is there so much homosexuality on TV lately? I don't like it. But I feel like I can't say anything, because then people will say I'm homophobic. I'm not. I believe in equal rights, but those two guys going at it on "Empire" the other night really upset me. I don't want to see that.   Mia: It's 2015. Turn the channel if you don't like what you see. And don't dis "Empire. " That sex scene was smoking!   Steve: I was shocked at how much sex was in "Fifty Shades of Grey.

Q: Valentine's Day was awful. Besides a few texts, I got nothing. It's been a hard winter. Whenever it snows, this guy I'm talking to invites himself over. But afterward when he leaves, I feel used. I'm lonely so I can't be picky. It's like I'm stuck in a cycle. Mia: Girl, get some self-respect and stop letting yourself be used for sex. Join a gym - and go - so you can meet people. Sign up for an online dating site. Nothing's going to change until you do. Get moving! Steve: You can do better.

Q: My girlfriend likes me to call her a dirty slut and worse while we make love. It makes her really wild and out of control. I have been saving up for a ring, but I don't want to marry someone who thinks of herself as a slut. What do you think? Mia: If she likes to play potty mouth and you don't, it's going to be an issue at some point. Don't buy her a ring. Keep saving, and then invest in someone who really does it for you. Steve: Does she really think that about herself or is it bedroom role play?

Q: My girlfriend and I have been talking about getting married for a while. Her patience is wearing thin waiting for me to ask. I plan on asking very soon but keep getting hung up on one thing. Over the last six months or so, when we argue, she'll occasionally say things that are very insulting and disrespectful. Things I would never say to her. She later says that she only says things like that because she's mad, and that I need to be less sensitive. I understand that her patience has worn thin waiting for me to ask her, but am I crazy to think that there is a line that two people shouldn't cross in an argument?

WHEN WE asked our romance columnists, Steve & Mia, to screen "Fifty Shades of Grey," they said, "You'd have to tie us up and drag us, kicking and screaming. " We replied, "We accept your terms. " Slightly bruised, here's their review: Steve: To the age-old question, "What do women want?" this movie answers: "To be tied up and used by a narcissistic billionaire. " Mia: You're only partly right, Steve. Women love billionaires. Butt plugs? Not so much. Steve: This flick will do for feminism what icebergs did for the Titanic.

Q: I am a 61-year-old male and, believe it or not, I'm a virgin. I have several platonic female friends. I go out with them on social dates. They do not consider me a potential romantic partner. I would like to have a romantic relationship but am not sure how I should go about this. Any advice?   Steve: Having platonic female friends is a blessing, and you shouldn't mess that up by trying to get romantically involved. Your best bet is finding someone new, through social media or perhaps a friend of one of your female friends.

Q: I can have an orgasm several times in a day and still want more. When I get like this, it's like I'm on fire and nothing can calm me down. Whenever I meet a new man, I tell him up front how I get sometimes. At first, they're excited, but after a few weeks, they don't answer my texts. This makes me insane. All I want is for a man to keep up with me sexually, but that's really hard to find. I don't know what to do.   Mia: Maybe you're tuned up so high, your lovers feel they can't satisfy you, and that's why they go ghost on you. Before you get back out on the dating prowl, you should get yourself checked out by a doctor.

Q: I'm a 32-year-old woman. I met a guy who on our first date told me had prostate cancer, but that doctors had operated on him and he was now cancer free. We had an OK time and he asked me out again. My friend said I shouldn't go out with him because of his medical history. What do you think?   Mia: Sorry, girlfriend, but you're not giving us enough information. Are you saying you're squeamish just because he had cancer? Or are you concerned about his ability to father children, or even just get and maintain an erection?
