Threesome relationships: Are they really possible?

Tell Trinity

Dear Trinity,
I recently read your comments on threesome relationships and you seem to defend them. Now really Trinity, aren’t threesome relationships guaranteed scenarios for trouble, jealousy and eventual failure?
Three’s Troubles, Albany, N.Y.

Dear Three’s Troubles,
Now really, isn’t it true that relationships between two people also have troubles, jealousy and failures? If you talk to threesome couples, which you probably haven’t, then you’d find that their troubles are not much different than “conventional” couples. Many that I’ve talked to say, “There are benefits, like always having someone around who’s willing to do the chores that the others won’t, there’s always someone to hang out with, bills are always cheaper, and there’s always someone in the mood to have sex with!” Oh, and by the way, pumpkin, aren’t two scoops of Ben and Jerry’s so much more delicious than just one?

Hello Trinity,
When I first met my partner we used to have very romantic times together. Now, after four years, I can barely keep his attention and I used to get lots of it. We both love each other, but I can tell he’s bored. Is it him, me or us? What can I do?

Hello Unnoticed,
Whether it’s him, you or the both of you, many couples get less sexual as time goes on, people do too. That’s life! Most “successful” couples face this issue at least a few times throughout their relationship. You’re not alone, honey, well, maybe on this issue. Instead of wasting time wondering how it was, start taking action with romantic evenings, wine with dinner, early nights to bed and smart getaways. And, if that doesn’t work try a romantic day at the therapist’s office! (The fantasy comes through in my cartoon. Just keep the dream alive.)

Hey Trinity,
I’m dating a guy who likes to do drugs, crystal meth to be exact. It makes him crazy sometimes, but other times he’s great. Am I crazy for dating him?
Crystal Crazed, Boston, Mass.

Hey Crystal Crazed,
“Crystal,” aka “Tina,” not only takes your happy cells away, but very often leads to manic depression and bipolar disorder. I’m also finding that most people who enjoy crystal today are enjoying a life of anti-depressants tomorrow. So, if you decide to continue dating him, which I can’t understand why anyone would, then try getting him interested in more natural drugs or start buying your roller coaster tickets in bulk!

Dearest Trinity,
I love dating and meeting new people, but I can’t seem to hold on to a date. Even worse is getting dumped each time. Why do nice guys always get dumped?

Dearest Constantly Dumped,
There are many reasons why you’re getting dumped. Besides asking friends to “tell you the truth” about what may be causing this, try memorizing:

Trinity’s Eye-opening Reasons For Why You Keep Getting Dumped
1. You try too hard to be liked by being too pushy, too needy, too willing and/or too aggressive.
2. You’re unable to let someone else be right, be quiet, prove you wrong, not agree with your opinion or have one of their own.
3. You’re a slob at home and in public, with no manners and nothing kind to say about anyone.
4. You’re a rageaholic, alcoholic, drugaholic, sexaholic and/or a jealousaholic.
5. You’re selfish, inconsistent, and unable to commit. In other words, you’re still a child.
6. You date losers because you think you’re a loser!
7. Your idea of a good night out is…a boring night at home watching TV!
8. You don’t stay focused on your date because you’re too busy looking or “cruising” every “thing” that walks by.
9. You act too tough, too self-assured, too upper class and/or too macho when you really need to act humble!
10. Lastly, you keep dating tourists who only visit for a week at a time.
