Q. My boyfriend and I had the biggest fight because we were at a club recently and I caught him in a corner kissing an ex-girlfriend after he said he was going to the men’s room. I was so angry I left the club. I have not seen him since and he has been calling claiming that I overreacted because she kissed him. I think what he did was disrespectful and I never want to see him again. He’s been begging me to see him and to forgive him. What do you say?
A. I think you’re right. His actions were disrespectful, and if I was in your shoes, I would leave him be. Next time, he might give try to give her a lift home with you in the back seat.
Q. My boyfriend of four months cries broke all the time because of his “responsibilities.” Whenever we go out, I spend the money. I do this, so we can be together. I loan him money which he has never paid back. I don’t mention it because I don’t want to do anything to spoil our time together. However, last month on my birthday, he gave me a card, with o gift, and brought me a carryout from his favorite pizza place. I was so hurt, I cried all night. My friends, who don’t have boyfriends) say he doesn’t really care and I should drop him. I just don’t want to be alone again. What would you do?
A. Your friends are right. No real man would always let you pick up the tab, and no real man would pass up the opportunity to treat you well on your birthday. Wait for someone who will treat you like you wish to be treated. It will be worth it. If you play in mud, you’re bound to get dirty. Get some good soap and wash him out of your hair.
