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: 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Q: I'M DIVORCED, in my early 30s and have been dating a great guy for nine months. We have similar interests, he's a really nice person and he has a good job. We haven't really talked about marriage yet, although we do love each other. I have one concern that's been holding me back a bit. When I get home from work, I really need to talk about my day to unwind. But when he gets home from work, he wants to eat dinner in front of the TV and has no interest in talking. When we're together, he's mostly into TV or playing computer games.

Q: I FINALLY FIND myself in a peaceful relationship, but now my ex-boyfriends are all coming out of the woodwork. I want to get rid of them but can't because I'm not sure if I might need them again.   Mia: I'm a big believer that every single woman should have a stable of men who she dates - not just one. That way, if she gets dumped or stood up by one, she has one - or two or three - on standby. Also, if the guys she's dating are seeing other women, it's not as big a problem because she's also dating other people.

Q: I recently met the perfect guy - or so I thought. One night he invited me over for a home-cooked dinner, which was very nice. For dessert he served brownies. We ate the whole pan. We were drinking wine and I started getting all giggly. I wound up staying the night and, yes, we were intimate. It was the first time. Today he told me had a confession to make. The brownies were laced with marijuana. I was shocked. I've never smoked pot before and I feel taken advantage of. Mia: You have every right to be mad. He gave you an illegal drug without your knowledge.

Q: Me and this girl have been seeing each for about a month, and out of the blue one day she announces that she's a furry. She brought out this cat costume with ears and a tail she likes to wear to this dance party she goes to. She even answers the phone when I call by saying "meow. " I thought it was sort of cute in the beginning, but she's a grown woman with a kid. She's in this stuff deep. We've talked about it but she keeps on telling me that this stuff she's into has nothing do with sex. Is she going to want me to do it to her in that get up?

Q: THE new guy I'm seeing just confessed to having a foot fetish. I'm intrigued. My question: how do you turn on a guy with this kind of fixation? Really high, sexy shoes, but what else? Mia: Wow, I'm impressed at your openness, girlfriend. A lot of women would have said, "Ick!" But you, Miss Sexy Free Spirit, you've decided to embrace what can be a very erotic thing - provided you've had a recent pedicure. Here are my suggestions: Wear stockings on your next date and let him slowly pull them down your legs.

Since inception in 2012, it's been nothing but smooth sailing for the Budweiser Made In America festival. Until Sunday evening, anyway. Things hit a snag shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday, when a severe weather system rolled through Center City, bringing heavy downpours and lightning. Shortly after the Austin, Texas, indie foursome Spoon - one of the most highly anticipated acts of the fest - began their set with "Rent I Pay," word came over the loudspeakers that attendees must evacuate the festival grounds.

Under near-perfect skies, tens of thousands of music-lovers flocked to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Saturday for the first of two days of concerts at the Budweiser Made in America festival. The third annual outdoor extravaganza, the creation of rap impresario Shawn Carter - better known as Jay Z - was staged for the first time this year simultaneously with an event in Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles. The MIA events were billed as a U.S. bicoastal urban megafestival. Kanye West, the headliner Saturday night in Philadelphia, was scheduled to fly overnight to the West Coast to appear Sunday in Los Angeles.

EVEN AVID music scenesters might not know half of the "nearly 50" acts curated by lead producer Shawn "Jay Z" Carter and friends for this weekend's Budweiser Made in America Music Festival on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. And that's a good thing. Ideally, fests should be about discovery. And if programmed right - balanced for ear-cleansing contrast and maximum sparkle - the talent grab-bags can help un-do long-held stereotypes and musical prejudices. A couple Labor Day weekends ago, the first M.I.A.

GREGG GILLIS, the mix-mashing male artist ironically known as Girl Talk, is usually pegged as a major player in the "EDM" (electronic dance music) camp. "But I've always felt as connected with rock, pop and hip-hop as with electronic, never wanted to pick a side," Gillis shared the other day from home base in Pittsburgh. "And I'm much happier playing at diversified festivals like Made in America than at a straight up EDM festival where people come for the atmosphere and the party and it's easy [for an artist]
