Dear Diana,
My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for almost a year. He used to be very nice and genuine. But now it seems as though he just does not care for me. I have tried to let him know how I feel but every time I do it, it just leads to us arguing. He now tells me that he likes another girl and says he will dump me. I really do love him and I really don't know what I would do without him. Sometimes for days, we don't see each other or communicate. It is clear that there is another woman in his life whom he prefers now. He has often pretended to like other girls and has pretended to dump me leaving me in tears. But now he is really doing it!

Dear Lovina,
Why are you taking all this from him? Your guy is a player trying to play you off against the other woman. He obviously wants you to argue and fight over him, and he'll gloat about it. Please get out now, things like this never work out. He obviously has a thing for the other woman, but just remember you deserve so much better than him. Hold your head up high and remember you are worth so much more without him. Start life anew. Best of luck.
