Dear Diana,
I like this guy at my workplace. I have known him since the past three years. We get along well and there is nothing we don’t share. He knows everything about me and I know everything about him. I assumed that I was his girl. Last week, he told me that he had found that someone special. I thought he would finally express his love for me. But I felt like a fool when he showed me his girl’s snapshots. It was someone his parents had found for him. Ever since, I don’t feel like talking to him.

Dear Tamara,

You were a fool to not express your feelings for him earlier. Three years is a long time. This guy just did not look at you in a special way. It is obvious that he considered you just a dear pal and nothing more. Move on with your life. and next time remember to be expressive to avoid a heartbreak.

Dear Diana,
A few years ago, I got friendly with a woman online. We would keep chatting, but there was nothing more to it. I have not even met her. Somehow my wife found out and accused me of having an affair. She left me for a while to live with her parents, but came back when I told her it was just harmless chatting. Since she came back all we do is fight. I feel like I’m being punished for something I didn’t do and I don’t know how we can move on. She says I cannot be friendly with any female.

Dear Ranjan,
Your wife seems to be of suspicious nature. If you have saved your chats, let her read them so that she knows there was nothing sexual to it. It was her call to leave you for a while and stay at her parental home. It was again her decision to be back in your life. There is no point in fighting daily over an online chat. If you want to be together, stop fighting. If she feels she cannot trust you, she need to do a serious rethink about the marriage.
