Wish I had one:
“He doesn't love me anymore!”

Hey Terra,

My boyfriend likes my best friend. We have been together for 3 months and 11 days! He always flirts with other girls. My friends say "Dump him," but I can't let go. I love him... A LOT! We get into fights a lot. He doesn't abusively fight, but we do argue! Terra, I need your advice.

He doesn't love me!

Dear He doesn't love me,

This doesn't sound like such a terrific relationship. According to your own words, your bf "always flirts with other girls" and the two of you "get into fights a lot."

You say you "love him... a lot," that's nice, but if he's arguing with you and coming on to other girls, then he doesn't sound all that committed to you. So your "love" for him, obviously isn't enough to keep this relationship happy and healthy.

Also, your friends know you and care about you. They are telling you to "dump him" because they don't want to see you continue to be hurt by this guy.

The fact that you signed your letter "He doesn't love me" makes it very clear that you know what's up. He doesn't love you. So why would you want to hang on and hang out with a guy who doesn't love you and doesn't treat you well.

You deserve than that!

In friendship,
