Why is Any Pork I cook Dry? Please Help Chowhounders!

You know.......I'm always enjoying reading these posts and if I can be of advise I love to reply. I love cooking and love food. However, the one bane of my cooking existence is pork. My family all adore pork..but I can't stand it. Why???? Because, in my opinion, any time I make pork, it is always on the dry side. Pork Chops. Gag. Sorry, I don't care how much I smother them in caramalized onion or how I disguise them in my tomatoe sauce with black olives and lots of basil and herbs--the meat is always dried. I hate that.
So..does anyone out there have a way to cook pork, whether chops or roast or any kind of pork so that it isn't dried out? My fiance has been asking for pork chops and I cannot even bring myself to cook them.

Thanks in advance!
