By Dr. Jane Greer

When Ben Affleck accepted the Oscar for Best Picture, he thanked his wife Jennifer Garner and said that marriage is hard work, but it is the best kind of work. He’s right — it takes great effort to find the balance between each person’s needs and desires. Say football is your thing — it always has been, ever since you were a little kid watching at home with your dad.

Are you expecting perfection in your relationship?

By Dr. Jane Greer

From the outside, Ryan Gosling probably seems like a flawless boyfriend – there’s certainly no denying that he’s a handsome star. But maintaining a relationship, as he and Eva Mendes have done for well over a year, requires so much more than that. We all want the ideal relationship with the best partner, right? In our minds that person is very clear: always thoughtful, tuned into our needs, knowing what we hope for before we even have to voice it.

Prince William canceled an important appearance on Sunday to stay home with his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, while she dealt with a second round of severe morning sickness. Many times you want your partner to support you, but work or personal needs take priority. So how did she get him to stay home, and how can you get your partner to meet your needs?

When can you be yourself in a relationship?

By Dr. Jane Greer

Typically celebrities meet and fall in love while they are working on a project or walking down the red carpet, so they are usually at their best. So the question is, if you meet under fairy-tale circumstances, like actress Scarlett Johansson and reported new boyfriend Romain Dauriac did, when can you let your hair down with a romantic partner and just be yourself?

When is it OK to be friends with an ex?

By Dr. Jane Greer

 

Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz have been famously complimentary toward each other in the press despite having dated and broken up. Rumors have even circulated that the two have spent some time together recently. While Timberlake remains devoted to his fiancee Jessica Biel, the two seem to have remained friends. Often when people end a relationship they say, “Let’s be friends.” It makes sense.

When is it a good time to meet your new flame’s family?

By Dr. Jane Greer

Superstar Taylor Swift and boyfriend Conor Kennedy hadn’t been dating long when he took her to a family wedding in August, despite reported requests that she not go because some worried Swift’s presence would take away from the bride’s attention. That’s a problem most of us don’t have to worry about, but it does raise the question: When is it a good time to meet your new flame’s family?

Ensure you’re on the same page in your relationship

By Dr. Jane Greer

Not all roads to romance offer a clear ride. Sometimes the signs are harder to read than others. As Emily Maynard, this season’s Bachelorette, handed out roses, the message was pretty clear: stay or go. But short of gathering for the ABC show’s famous rose ceremony, is it possible to miss the message? Might an important lane shift have taken place that you somehow didn’t notice?

“Mirror Mirror” star Lily Collins was seen recently in pictures with Jamie Camp­bell Bower, taken while filming a movie together in Canada. That’s a change. We’re used to seeing Lily in photos with Zac Efron. But rumor has it that Lily and Zac have now split. Celebrities get together and break up in front of the camera all the time.

Do you call after you sleep together?

By Dr. Jane Greer

Rumors have been swirling over whom Zac Efron is dating. Earlier this year he was linked to “Mirror Mirror” star Lily Collins, but not much has been said about them lately. It is hard to know just how far their connection went, but whenever I hear about new relationships I often wonder about those first few moves each person makes and how much that affects their future as a couple.

Is it time to X out your ex?

By Dr. Jane Greer

Cameron Diaz is a good example of someone who does not burn her bridges of love. A-Rod’s said that he cherished her even after they broke up, and she worked with Justin Timberlake on a movie after they had a relationship. It’s clear that she doesn’t cut people completely out of her life once the romance is gone.

When should you reconsider the date who made a terrible first impression?

By Dr. Jane Greer

 

People are always looking for instant love and romance. Take the new dating show that is set to premiere on Fox in early June called “The Choice,” on which celebrity contestants will try to find their match in three quick rounds. That’s a lot of judging and decision-making in a short amount of time. What if a celebrity makes the wrong fast choice and sends the possible love of his or her life away?

Are you ready to move in with each other?

By Dr. Jane Greer

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have bought a home together. It sounds like fun, doesn’t it? They met on the set of “The Green Lantern” and have been moving forward as a couple ever since. It’s easy to get swept up in the romance of it all, especially the idea of playing house. But they — and anyone at their stage of the dating game — must have asked themselves: How long do you date, and how long do you wait, before you decide to become mates … as in roommates?

How do you handle a bossy partner?

By Dr. Jane Greer

Who’s telling who what to do in this coupling?

Exercise more. Lower your voice. Spend more time with me. Everybody wants to tell you what to do — especially the person you are with. We have even read about Brad Pitt’s concern that Angelina Jolie isn’t eating enough. Does he get on her case at home?

Do you know best who’s right for you?

By Dr. Jane Greer

When we read about Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend Casper Smart, we can sense some disapproval. He is often referred to as her boy toy or dancer boyfriend. The implication is that they are not on the same level. If this is the way the tabloids are handling their coupling, you have to wonder what her friends might be saying to her.
