Hello out there to the lovebirds and the lovelorn! Mayte Garcia of Hollywood Exes is here to answer your love questions. Got a love conundrum? Tweet it to @OKMagazine with the hashtag #OKLoveMayte to see your question answered here.
OK!: How do you know when your relationship is over?
Mayte Garcia: When someone asks if you’re in a relationship, and you say no. When you’re open to someone else asking you out, that’s when you know it’s over. When you’re actually interested in someone else, or your crushes start again. I used to have a big crush on Bruno Mars, and now I don’t care!
OK!: On Twitter, someone said, “I’ve been engaged for 3 months, and I get tired of him but I can’t break up with him. I know I’d be sad.” What do you do with that?
MG: You don’t want to marry someone that you’re already tired of. The sadness will pass. Be with someone who makes you happy, who you’re excited to hang out with. If you’re already tired of him, please don’t get married! This is why divorce is so easy. I think you should break up with him.
OK!: When is the right time to sleep with someone?
MG: It depends on how old you are and how well you know the guy. If this is a relationship thing, I’d wait at least 3-4 dates. Get to know the guy, know his morals. Once you get intimate, that’s pretty much it. Is this a relationship or a one-night stand? If you just want to have sex, then whatever.
OK!: Any advice for when you like a friend?
MG: Give him hints. Change the way you dress. Guys aren’t stupid. If the girl starts to dress up, the guy’s like, Oh, she’s looking really cute. I wonder why? See how he reacts toward you changing your demeanor. Then sit down, get a drink with him, and say, ‘Oops. I kind of like you!’ The best relationships come out of friendships first. Use my column!

OK!: What do you do when you have a friend who’s being crazy in her relationship?
MG: As her friend, sit her down and say, ‘You’re being crazy. Let’s slow it down’. Go and have a night where all you do is talk about him. Have five drinks that night. The next day, you’ll feel so terrible, you’re not going to talk about him and you’re not going to be crazy. ‘As your friend, I’m going to kick your ass, and our friendship is at stake.’ Give them a wake-up call!
