Find someone who accepts you for who you are. The longer you stay with this guy, the more it will erode your self-esteem. Take his own advice and don't waste time on this relationship.

"the weather is always perfect" -- No, it isn't. It's always cool and foggy. Yes, we have horrible winters in Boston, but at least we get to enjoy hot summers. SF is depressing in the summer. If you v more »

I too get nauseous when I hear people talking about weddings. Weddings are gross. But I don't feel nauseous when I think about growing old together with my boyfriend (or, as we sometimes call ourselve more »

I completely agree. I work at a school that has several options for lunch, some of which are healthy and some of which are not. Students have money in their accounts for lunch (or get free lunch if th more »

I like to try to be hopeful in comments, but there is no hope here. Dear, LW, please don't waste any more attention on this relationship. You shouldn't have to try to convince a guy to hang out with y more »

C'mon, Boston.com. This is just shoddy reporting. Your source is craigslist now? What's next -- a story about Big Foot or the Easter Bunny? more »

This list seems truly bizarre to me. Lexington is incredibly boring and has extremely high taxes. Waltham has some seriously shady characters roaming the streets, and Framingham just feels like suburb more »

He wants something "on the side" and he texted you in the middle of the night (again). You already know the truth, which is that you are only a booty call. I'm sorry. Booty calls are not inherently ba more »

I disagree with Meredith on this one. Try to enjoy just flirting with the other guy and stick with your BF. He sounds like a great guy, and I think you would regret destroying your relationship with s more »

Seriously. Obese people are part of the reason our health care costs have skyrocketed. It's ridiculous to compare obesity to an ethnicity as Barkley's critics did. No, not everyone has a naturally sve more »

Stay strong and listen to your therapist. You got divorced for very good reasons. You deserve to be happy. 23 years is a long time, and change can be hard, but this change is definitely for the best. more »

Most of these sound pretty good, but sushi? Under the hot bleacher sun? No thanks.

Dear, LW, I can totally relate to this letter because I felt this way when I was dating my first boyfriend. I was always worried that he was comparing me to others. And now I am in the opposite situat more »

Dear LW, You have my sympathies. I am so sorry that you are going through this. Please dump this guy ASAP and move on with your life. You deserve to be treated with respect. There are good guys out th more »

I agree with this and, in fact, would take it a step further. I think feeling too strong of a spark too soon can be a warning sign of what my friends call "madness." Passion and craziness are very clo more »

You definitely did the right thing. He lied to you about a weekend trip? That is completely unacceptable. I am sorry that this happened to you and I hope you find a better guy soon.

Seriously! In desperation, I drank some DD yesterday on the road, and it was so weak that it wasn't even worth drinking. I had to get some real coffee elsewhere soon after.

Ugh. I am so not in favor of this trend. Lavish second weddings were considered tacky for many years for good reason. They *are* tacky. It is bad enough that we have to deal with this excess with firs more »

Sorry. I meant she "deserved better" in terms of being with someone who she had to TRY really hard to be attracted to. I wasn't judging the guy.
Posted 07/30/2013 04:23:21 EDT
It's interesting that this letter doesn't mention drinking at all. If this guy had a serious drug addiction in the past and has very recently stopped taking meth (or so he says), he should not be drin more »

What I think you want is validation that it's OK to not continue a relationship with a man to whom you are not attracted. It's OK. Looks are important, and you're human. Don't beat yourself up about n more »

You deserve to be with someone who doesn't lie to you or get violent when she drinks.

I wore the dress that the woman on the right side of the picture is wearing to a wedding I attended recently. I bought it to wear as a guest, not a bridesmaid, and I thought it looked good. It was goo more »

I second the nips comment. That strategy has saved me hundreds of dollars over the years.
Posted 04/23/2013 09:19:58 EDT
You definitely did the right thing. She wants to have her cake and eat it too. It would have been painful to watch her date other people while keeping you around for when it's convenient for her. Brea more »
