Competing For Husband’s Desire

Q: Allana, my husband has a crush on you. While I thought it was cute after first, it made me start to get a little insecure when he made your pole dancing, birthday party pictures his desktop wallpaper.

Q: Allana, I’m 54, divorced, and finally re-entering the dating scene.  I recently met a nice man who is currently going through a divorce. Having survived my own divorce, I know what he is experiencing and don’t want to be his rebound or reminder of one of the worst times in his life.
