'How do I convince him that I'm serious about us?'
How do I convince my boyfriend that I am genuinely in love with him and not just fooling around? He has this mentality because every girl he has been with before has dumped him after six or seven months
How do I convince my boyfriend that I am genuinely in love with him and not just fooling around? He has this mentality because every girl he has been with before has dumped him after six or seven months. We have been together for over five months now, and I have no intention of dumping him, but I get the feeling that he expects me to. It's as if he doesn't want this to work, because he takes it so casually, even though I am very serious about him. How do I get him to recognise this and work towards making this stronger rather than weaker?
I suppose time and patience is all you have to get him to see that you mean well. This is about building trust, which won't happen overnight.
I love a girl who is a year older than I am. She loves me too, but we aren't in a relationship yet. I'm afraid of losing her because she has a hole in her heart, but I don't want to see her with anyone else either. She keeps asking me not to fall in love with her because she says she will be gone suddenly and I will regret it. What should I
do? Please help me.

I'm not sure what sort of advice you're looking for. You need to speak to a doctor and get more factual information about her condition and what it means for her and your future. It means you will have to take into consideration the fact that she may require specialised care. I'm not sure what you mean by not wanting to see her with someone else. If she believes she shouldn't be with anyone because of her life-threatening condition, why will she agree to marry someone after asking you to stay away? I suggest you both speak to your families and friends, and see what they have to say. This has to be an informed, collective decision.
