'I regret breaking off with my guy...'

Dear Diana,
Last month, I split with my boyfriend of two years. I wanted some time by myself and to figure out what I wanted to do in life. It was my decision to call it quits as my guy was caring and loving. However, now I miss him. I want him back in my life. It was a sudden decision and I am regretting it. What should I do? I feel if not him, I need a guy in my life who will love and care for me.

Dear Fareeda,
As they say act in haste and regret at leisure. This is exactly your case. When you had everything going well, why did you take such a sudden decision? If you want him back in your life, you will have to make the first move. Approach him again and apologise for the decision. Tell him that you have realised what he means to you and how important he is for you. If he agrees to take you back, it will be great, But if he acts difficult, move on. Next time, remember not to act in haste.

Dear Diana,
I've been crazy about a guy for the last five years. The only problem is he's much older. I'm 25 and he is 38. I'm wondering whether or not to take the plunge. He was insistent that I shouldn't be with my ex-boyfriend as I wasn't happy in the relationship. The only problem is I'm wondering if I'm misreading the signs. Is he just flirting with me? Sometimes I wonder why he insisted that I break off with my ex. He keeps saying he will always be the eligible bachelor.

Dear Shaina,
From the looks of it, this guy cannot be trusted. He seems to have had his share of women and has mastered the art of wooing women and sweeping them off their feet. If you are really interested in him, ask him to commit. If he does it's great, if he does not, get the hint and move away.

Diana will solve it!
