Guidelines

AskTheLoveDoctor.Com let’s you ask me questions and get my opinion on relationship situations. Unlike other blogs where people post their stories and ask for advice from ANY-one, and most of the time NO-one is even listening or giving answers, AskTheLoveDoctor.Com is strictly “you ask ME (the Love Doctor)” and I answer YOU”. Think of it as my consultation “office”, if you may.

Please note that I am not obligated to answer your questions. While I try to read every question or comment, I can not respond to every one of them. There is just not enough time to do so.

Someone else may have already asked a similar question to yours, so please take the time to search and read before you ask.

If your question or comment is not approved/deleted, it means that we’ve judged it to be repetitive (been asked before), it’s too long (we don’t read those!), or we don’t see it adding anything of value to the discussion.

Asking For Advice

People who frequent this blog are looking for 1) professional guidance, 2) a different outlook to relationships and, 3) mature discussions and exchanges. We ask that you keep comments short and relevant to the original question and post/article. This will help blog users find the answers they’re looking for quickly and easily without having to read through all the “other stuff” which is of very little use to them. This is what makes this blog user-friendly and relevant for all users.

It doesn’t help you to leave a comment (and especially a rant with no clear question) anywhere in any post just to get attention or reaction – any reaction. Attention-seeking and attention-grabbing maneuvers don’t work here.

Stories and Rants

Our goal is to keep the blog professional and simple. Writing long details about your relationship situation here makes the blog crowded and “to whom it may concern” forum-like. Long comments, rants and personal stories that are just about you with no benefit to others, and questions that have nothing to do with the original post or distract and draw attention away from the original topic will not be approved.

If you feel frustrated and need to let it out in a rant, find some other support forum that accepts rants and long personal stories. You will be better served there than here. This forum is strictly for people looking for short and direct answers to their relationship questions.

If you feel you need to explain the details of your situation/story and get my advice, please consider signing up for one-on-one coaching.

Sexual Content

Please DO NOT post explicit graphic sexual content. I’m not interested in how other people DO sex and will not approve or respond to any comments or questions that describe the act of sex. As far as I’m concerned, some things are best left private.

Giving Advice to Other Blog Users

We very much welcome others giving advice to fellow blog readers. That said, we do not encourage giving advice tainted by your own bad personal experiences, biases, prejudices and preconceived notions. Misleading advice that discourages or railroads others from seeking that heart-soul-mind connection, or does not advance healthy, fulfilling and lasting relationships will NOT BE  APPROVED.

Understanding & Compassion

We ask that you please be considerate, respectful and empathetic to other users and what they are going through at any particular moment when posting your comments. Our team reserves the right to approve or reject comments we deem not in accordance with our approach to human-relations — authenticity, openness, compassion and maturity.

Privacy

We edit out names, emails or any other information that reveals a third party’s identity.
