Dear Sugar: Do I Wait For My Ex?

Download Audio

In this episode, the Sugars take a question from a young woman whose boyfriend recently broke up with her because of questions about his sexuality. The letter writer is heartbroken and confused — and trying to figure out what it means and whether to wait while he figures it out.

The Sugars are joined by the sex advice columnist Dan Savage.
