Relationships are tough. Then again, living the single life presents its own set of challenges. Given the complexity of love (and lust) in the modern world, you need an expert who can help you navigate your options and make choices based on an honest ethical perspective. In other words, you need Dan Savage.

What Your Mom Doesn’t Know
Your mom has more smarts than you could ever guess, but she probably doesn’t have much experience with meeting men online or flirting via text messages. Heaven forbid that you have to deal with issues related to homosexuality, fetishes or sex toys. Most moms would thank you gladly for taking such questions to your counselor instead of trying to talk about them over the dinner table.
Ambiguity Comes in all Lifestyles
If you have a question that falls outside of the “normal” dating realm, then you can find your answer somewhere in the annals of Dan Savage’s column Savage Love. No matter how confused you feel, you cannot shock the man. He has met someone with way kinkier kinks than you.
Dan Savage does more than just tell couples that monogamy has its own shades of gray and that the line between heterosexuality and homosexuality is more than blurred… for some people, it doesn’t exist at all. Savage also co-created the It Gets Better Project with his husband Terry. It Gets Better focuses on preventing LGBT teens from committing suicide by reminding them that life will get better for them.
If you had a chance to talk one-on-one with Savage, what question would you ask him?
