Q. I am a vegan. I'm finding this is an issue for some women I date. Take this one girl: She brought a big, greasy cheesesteak to my apartment after I invited her to come watch a movie with me. It stank my whole place up. She sat there and ate the whole thing. It didn't stop us from getting busy, but later after she left, I wondered how to take it. Should I have said something? Mia: She knew you were vegan and brought a big, stinky meat sandwich over to eat in your presence. Dude, that was her way of giving you her middle finger.

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'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...

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: 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 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'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 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'm a decent-looking 40-year-old woman who has been on Match.com, PlentyofFish.com, Tinder.com, hung at bars, been to singles parties, you name it. About a year ago, I met a perfectly nice divorced guy. He has two kids and a steady job. Things are good between us - except in bed. He's a basic in-and-out guy. He's not big on foreplay. One-sided oral sex (his side). He even has small equipment. After he falls asleep, I take care of things myself. But other than that, he's a decent man. He works hard and makes decent money.

Q: MY BOYFRIEND and I have been together nearly a year and a half. We haven't had any problems until now. He has a 3-year-old daughter and two weeks ago she and her mother (his ex) moved in with him. He told me that they don't have anywhere else to live. He told me that nothing's going to change with us, but I know it is. I never saw her as a threat to me until she moved into his house. Now, I'm scared that I'm going to lose him to her. My heart is telling me to stay and work it out, but my mind is telling me to leave and move on. Should I leave or should I stay?

Q: I have a really weird question that I've never seen addressed in your column. I'm wondering if the new guy I'm seeing is gay because he asked me to use a dildo on him from behind? I'm a little freaked out by him asking me to do that. Steve: If that's the only "sign," no. Having the prostate gland, sometime called the man's G-spot, digitally stimulated is very pleasurable to some men. Mia: Shouldn't you be asking him that question? Seriously, I don't get how people are willing to get buck naked with each other but unwilling to open up their mouths for something other than oral sex and actually talk to each other.

WHAT DO Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Rob Lowe, Tommy Lee, R. Kelly and Pamela Anderson - twice - have in common? They all made private sex tapes that later became public. This brings us to "Sex Tape," the romantic comedy starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, which opens today. Diaz and Segel play a married couple who make a sex video based on every position in The Joy of Sex. They upload it to the Cloud, then are horrified to learn it was sent to a handful of other iPads.

Q: Last weekend, my wife came home really drunk and carrying her shoes in her hands. When I asked her what she'd been doing all night, she told me that she and some friends had gone to a gentleman's club I know of. It's the same place where my buddies hang out, so I hear stories all the time. While my wife was there, someone bought my wife a lap dance. She told me that she went along with the dance just for fun. After she passed out on the couch, I sat up all night wondering whether she was secretly gay or maybe even bi-curious.

Q: One of my best friends told me that she made out with her son's best friend. She claims he came on to her, but I'm not so sure. When she told me, I pointed out how wrong she was. Her response was that since he's over 18, he's an adult and can make his own decisions. I'm a mom myself, and I wouldn't want a 40-something woman being sexual with my son. I backed off but can't help wondering if I should warn the boy's mother. Mia: Go ahead. You may lose your friend, but is this desperado really the type of friend you want around your kids?

Q: THIS FATHER'S DAY, I want to surprise my husband by sending the kids to my mother's so we can spend the day getting freaky. I got a new book with sexual positions, and I want to see how many different ones we can get through in a single day. He's been working a lot, and, frankly, things have gotten really stale between us. We've been together 11 years. My mother says I'm being selfish. She thinks Father's Day is about kids and that we should spend it together as a family. Who's right here?

Q: My boyfriend is wonderful but a little depressed about the size of his "equipment. " He thinks he's too small and can't pleasure me. When I tell him he does, he kind of looks like a puppy and says, "But I'm so small. " Like Mia, I've been around the block a few times. I know he's big enough. But how can I tell him how I know without coming off like a total slut? Mia: Just remind him of that old saying, "It's not the size of the ship, but the motion in the ocean. " And tell him that in terms of size, he's normal.

Q: I would like to tell both of you that my nephew wants me to find somebody close to home instead of going out with someone that lives long distance. What should I do?   Mia: Closer is always better. But if you're not all that serious, why limit yourself? Date your long-distance friend when you can, but date locally as well.   Steve: Date locally, but look globally.   Q: I accidentally texted a comment about my friend "Lisa" to her instead of to the friend I was texting with.
