I fear my girlfriend will dump me!

Jun 06, 2012, 05:55 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm a 29-year-old software professional in a serious relationship with a woman who is of the same age.

We’ve been going strong for more than two years now. I recently learned from a mutual friend that she had a boyfriend. It so turned out that she dumped him without giving any good reason and started going out with me. I was of the opinion that she was always single. I don’t want to flatter myself by thinking that she gave up somebody just for me. The thought that’s troubling me now is if she’s capable of repeating the same with me someday in case she find someone else.

Dear Abel,
Good heavens! You both are 29 and mature enough to know where your relationship is headed to. It’s been two years since you both have been together; it is time you thought of taking it to the next level. How can you still say that she might dump you for someone else? You two are not teenagers to play the dating game. You are at an age when you need to settle down. Don’t be such an insecure psycho and wonder if she might dump you. You need to ask her about a future together. Get going... you are 29 not 19!
