After divorce, why can’t I find ‘the one?’ — Q. I was married for more than 25 years, divorced for three years, and am now in my 50s. My kids are grown and I am basically happy but for the fact that I seem to end up in a series of committed relationships that are never "the right one."

Relationships in bits and pieces — An "X-Files" button. A wedding dress in a jar. A glass case filled with severed dreadlocks. These are a few of the objects in the Museum of Broken Relationships, which opened in Los Angeles over the summer.

My new boyfriend’s leaving for a job; do I follow? - The Boston Globe — New to Boston Globe Magazine - Love Letters. Q. I am a confident, independent 29-year-old woman. I moved from Boston to a city I love three years ago. I live by myself and have a great group of friends here. To top it all off, I got a promotion six months ago and love my job.

The Steven Tyler Skittles portrait is up for auction — Advertisement You have until 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday to bid on a portrait of Steven Tyler made entirely of Skittles. This is a replica of the candy-art piece that was featured in one of Sunday night's stranger Super Bowl commercials. In the ad, Tyler coaches the animated portrait as it tries to sing the Aerosmith hit "Dream On."

‘La La Land’ could have been set in Boston — Advertisement Damien Chazelle, the Providence-born, Harvard-educated, writer-director of the already-beloved musical "La La Land," says the first drafts of the screenplay had the film set in Boston. During an interview after the movie's premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Chazelle told us that "La La Land" was a local love story until he was influenced by his move to the West Coast.

Everybody else seems to be having a better life - The Boston Globe — Q. My issue is comparing myself with others. I am 32, female, and single, with a doctoral degree, a good job, and a full life. I have had two long-term relationships. My singleness somehow means I have less self worth (in my eyes) than my childhood friends/co-workers/fill in the blank who are settled down.

Pivot was made for me and soon it will be gone — We have just a few months left with Pivot, sometimes known as the Joseph Gordon-Levitt channel, the "Friday Night Lights" channel, or "that channel with all of the sad commercials about abused dogs." Participant Media, which launched Pivot in 2013, announced Aug. 17 that it would be closing up shop at the cable network later this year.

Should she tell his fiancee before moving on? — Q. I have been involved in a long-distance relationship with someone on and off for six years. We've never discussed marriage, but we always had a great time and the chemistry was sizzling whenever we were in the same place.

Ever have a teen celeb crush? Writers dish. — People ask me why I became a journalist. If I'm being honest, the answer is Christian Slater. At 16, all I wanted was to meet him and become his girlfriend. The best way to do that, it seemed, was to pursue journalism and work for an entertainment magazine.

Where is ‘Patriots Day’ filming today? — Advertisement Doyle's Cafe in Jamaica Plain is closed until Friday for the filming of the Peter Berg-directed Boston Marathon bombing movie, "Patriots Day." The Washington Street business confirmed it would be closed from Thursday until sometime Friday morning. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Monaghan, John Goodman, and J.K.
