'I still can't get over my college sweetheart'

Jul 08, 2013, 23:39 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I am 27. During my postgraduation days, I was in love with a classmate.

She too was attracted to me but eventually after college we went our separate ways. Later, I realised that she had a boyfriend and I felt like a fool. Last year, thanks to social media, I come to know that she has got married to a rich guy and relocated to Dubai. It’s been seven years but I still can’t forget her.

Dear Faiz,
Good heavens! Mr Romeo wake up and do a reality check. First, when you were in love with her, she already had a boyfriend and now she is married. She was not interested in you. You showered attention on her and she basked in it. You yourself state that you felt like a fool when you realised that she had a boyfriend. Now she has a husband, so get ready to be a Mr Fool again. Forget her pronto and get going in life. She is your past and you live in the present. Think of the future and find someone else.

Diana will solve it!
