Dear Todd Parker,

I just got out of a relationship that had been going for almost two years. It was really good for a long time, but over the last six months, I was starting to feel like it just wasn't going to work. I had talked to my boyfriend about the issues I was having and he seemed sympathetic to my feelings. I just wanted him to know that things weren't working for me.

A couple of weeks after we had that conversation, he broke up with me. Just like that. Even though I was planning on breaking up with him if we couldn't work our stuff out, I didn't expect him to pull the plug like that. It just felt so cold-blooded it was like he'd rather just walk away than make an effort toward fixing the problem.

Dear Todd Parker,

I recently found myself in an incredibly awkward situation and I can't figure out what to do. I've asked all of my friends and we just can't come to any sort of consensus as to what the right move should be.

I was out at a bar a couple of week ago, catching up with a couple of friends after work. I got up to go to the bathroom and spotted this dude I knew from way back; hadn't seen the guy in years, but I used to hang out with him and his wife quite a bit.

Ask Todd Parker - (01-13-2016)

Dear Todd Parker,

I've been getting a lot of conflicting advice from my friends and family, so I thought I'd try an objective outsider. Even if I am pretty sure you're just going to make fun of me.

My girlfriend and I have been dating for almost four years. And I love her more as time goes by, as corny as that sounds. She's never been anything but wonderful and supportive of anything that I choose to do, and I like to think that I've been the same way.

Dear Todd Parker,

This isn't really a problem, but I would like to get some of your thoughts. It's officially 2016, and like most of us, I've made some New Year's resolutions. Nothing spectacular - mostly the standard stuff everybody else resolves to do.

I want to be healthier, eat better, and maybe lose a few pounds. I want to spend more time with my friends and family. I'm going to try to be more productive at work; I'm hoping to snag a promotion. I know these are all good things that will probably make my life better, but when I look at it, it all seems so boring.

I'm not one to complain about much, but something happened yesterday that really infuriated me. I got angry to the point of wanting to find ways to cut a person completely out of my life. It's totally out of character for me, but all I can think about is how this person has wronged me.

I work with four other people in a small office. I had worked all weekend, so I wasn't scheduled to come in until a little later in the day on Monday. Let me repeat I had worked ALL WEEKEND, and so was unable to make it to the movies to see 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.' This despite my life-long fandom. So my aim was to bust through a few hours of work before heading out and seeing the movie that evening.

A buddy and I have been debating something for a while now and I thought it was something that you might have an interesting take on.

We have this mutual friend. Call him Jeff. A couple of years ago, Jeff dated this girl for about six months. They broke up, but they still liked each other afterward. No hard feelings or anything. They both moved on from there. A couple of months after they ended things, Jeff met his current girlfriend and they're very happy.

Dear Todd Parker,

I've been working at the same job for a few years now. I spend long hours at work, trying to do the best that I can. I like to think that more often than not, I do just that. I know for a fact that I'm a huge asset to the company.

Here's my problem. There's this other guy (we'll call him 'Rick') who just started with us a little less than a year ago. He's everything I'm not. He's rude to customers and extremely lazy; I'm always rebuilding bridges that he's burned and cleaning up his messes. Unfortunately, I'm good at that too. So good, in fact, that my boss has begun praising this other guy's 'work ethic' around the office, telling us that we should be more like 'Rick.' There's even talk of 'Rick' receiving a promotion a promotion I've been trying to get for a couple of years now.

Dear Todd Parker - (11/04/15)

I like to think that I'm a good neighbor. I'm always pleasant to people that I see when I'm out for my morning run or walking the dog or whatever else. And my neighbors in turn have always been perfectly nice to me.

However, something happened the other day that has left me at a loss with regards to how I should react. I'm not looking to cause any neighborhood tension, which means I can't just come right out and ask people about it. So I'm asking you.

Dear Todd Parker - (10/21/15)

I have something that has been weighing on my mind for a while now, and I was hoping to get your opinion on the subject.

Why do girls have such a problem with farting?
