any help you need. But go for it! Slim­ming will be only one of the achieve­ments in your fu­ture, and not the great­est one, ei­ther.

Q: My boyfriend of two years broke up with me six months ago, but he still texts ev­ery day to say things like “I really miss you” and “I feel like I’m go­ing to re­gret end­ing our re­la­tion­ship”. I don’t un­der­stand. A:

He’s us­ing you as an emo­tional booty call—he wants to be re­as­sured that you’re still into him with­out hav­ing to com­mit to get­ting back to­gether. What he says may be true to an ex­tent, but this effed-up dy­namic only ben­e­fits him by mak­ing it more dif­fi­cult for you to date other guys, which means your ex doesn’t need to truly deal with the fact that your re­la­tion­ship is over. Whether he re­alises it or not, he’s act­ing self­ish and play­ing games. He hasn’t found any­one else, and when he does, he’ll stop call­ing. Tell him that you need space and you don’t want to talk for a while. Then do what he doesn’t want you to do—move on, and don’t get caught in this cy­cle.

Q: I love the fit of a great pen­cil skirt. But I feel I’ve got­ten stuck in a rut with my clas­sic black and navy pieces. How can I mix things up? A:

You’re ab­so­lutely on track with your at­trac­tion to pen­cil skirts—they’re so flat­ter­ing! You’ll find your­self with fash­ion gold if you change things up by pick­ing up trendy pat­terns (think flora and fauna) or clash­ing prints (geo­met­ric meets graphic). It’s un­be­liev­ably easy to make the skirt the main­stay of your look by opt­ing for in­ter­est­ing, fash­ion-friendly de­tail­ing. And when in doubt, al­ways go for solid brights.
