Hey love Doc,
I recently found out my ex met someone (from a different culture, first language and country) on an online dating site. After meeting her only once (in person) he has left his family and friends to live with her and they have already married well within a year of meeting online (probably for Visa reasons). She is 21 and he is 32. I know it is not my business, and I definitely don't want him back, but I can't help but wonder what causes such uncharacteristic behaviour? Is it likely this/these types of relationships will last? We were together 6 years and it was quite a shock to hear as I thought I knew him well.
I have been married to my wife for 6 years, we have a young daughter together and have always been on the same page spiritually etc. But over the last few months (if I really look back, it’s probably been a lot longer) she has been disengaging from all things to do with Christianity. She has changed her theology and now would identify as atheist. It is a big shock for me and I don’t know how to deal with this? She isn’t the same person I married, she isn’t nasty or anything, but she is just very different. I feel we can’t connect on a spiritual level anymore, which is heartbreaking for me, and I worry about how we will bring up our daughter... What do I do?
Hey love doc,
Hey Ian, I am going to be a first time Dad in about a month (hopefully not a Christmas day baby haha). And of course, I’m freaking out a little, I have read some books and what not, but I guess you never know how you’ll do until you get there right? I don’t like to over complicate things so... Could you just tell me what the 3 most important things are in being a Dad? Just so I know that if I’m at least doing those 3 things right, my kid will turn out okay, if you know what I mean? Cheers, love your work!
Art Blajos is a former hitman for the Mexican mafia. He says that he has murdered 'many' men in his past life and he spent 17 years in a California prison.
One day the inmate in the prison cell next to him told him something about God which changed his life forever.
This week in the podcast Clint took us on brief journey with the history of boy bands, Bjorn taught us about darts, and they also brought the greatest scheme of them all to rest. In doing so this gave them time to work on the best thing since the Blint Ultimate Party mix! What is it? Hit that Play/Subscribe button and start the podcast.
Later on this year in Dunedin there will be the Samstock music festival.

Hey love Doc,
I have always been a very maternal person, and really looked forward to finding a husband one day. I have been praying about this a lot lately, and have several people prophesying over my life almost hinting at me to live a life focusing solely on God... The idea of giving up the dream of having a family is so hard. How do I give up something I have wanted for so long, should I even be listening to these people?
My daughter is starting to date. I want to trust her and not give her a bunch of rules but I also know that kids will be kids. I am in very new and unknown territory, what’s the right move here?
Hey love doc,
Last year I went travelling overseas for about 8 months and have now returned home. I met this amazing girl while away and we travelled together for a few months, we got really close over that time and wanted to pursue it further. She has now moved to New Zealand to see if things are going to work with us long term. She thinks everything is going great but I am not sure anymore, I still like her but I am having doubts about the whole thing. Should I tell her this, knowing how much she has invested to be here? It will break her heart and she might want to move back overseas. Or should I just stick it out a little longer to see how our relationship develops in this new environment?
In this week’s podcast:
- We have a secret your secrets
-Clints good mates Caleb & Alice won The Block and we caught up with them
-We catch up with the giraffe riddle guy
Clint and Bjorn caught up with Art Blajos earlier this week, former hitman for the Mexican Mafia, now a reformed man of God! He has an unbelievable testimony (audio below) and he is sharing it in a lot more detail this weekend.
I am a bit of a hopeless romantic, I tend to show how I feel by showering my loved ones with gifts. This results in me spending too much money too soon in relationships that don't end up lasting, what should I do, how do I manage this?
Hi Love Doc,
My wife uses sex as a bargaining chip to get me to do what she wants. Is this fair, or even biblical?
I have been dating my GF for 2 years and we very happy. I plan on marrying her, but her parents don't like me very much because I have quite a few tattoos and stretchers in my ears. It's important to honour your parents’ opinion but I feel disrespected and judged her parents, but I still want her dads blessing! What do I do?
It was Halloween on Thursday so on the Forum this week we’ll be asking what you think of it.
Did you get involved with Halloween this year in any way?
Do you have any good or bad Halloween experiences to share?
Do you think it’s ok to celebrate it?
Some people say that Halloween promotes dangerous supernatural things, so what do you think of that stuff generally?
Have your say by calling Life FM’s talkback show the Forum - Sunday night from 9pm!
