'My boyfriend is cheating on me...'
I'm 22 and my boyfriend is 25. We have been together for eight months now
I'm 22 and my boyfriend is 25. We have been together for eight months now. Recently he started being distant from me. When I asked him what was wrong, he gave evasive replies. I have now found out that he has someone else on the scene. He has been texting another girl and has now admitted that he does fancy her. I feel cheated and humiliated.
Obviously this guy is not worthy of your love. He could have told you that he is no longer interested in you. But he chose to be evasive and you found out yourself. This clearly proves that the man cannot be trusted. It is best you move on and it's good that you realised that something was amiss before you committed yourself. This guy is spineless and don't even bother to ask him for an explanation.
I have been hiding my feelings for long. I like this girl in the neighbourhood. She's a friend of my sister and comes over to our home. My sister thinks she also likes me, but I don't know if I can ask her out — as I am scared. I do not want any problems as we are part of the same neighbourhood. How should I tell her without sounding too desperate? I really want to get to know her first. She works in a bank while I am working for a travel agency. My sister keeps teasing me about her.
If your sister thinks she likes you, tell her to find out what she feels about you. If she is interested, she will respond and drop hints. Try to talk to the girl alone and show that you care by being concerned about her. At the same time, don't behave desperate or sound nervous. You can always ask her out on some pretence or even in a group, but make sure you sit next to her to know her better and understand what's on her mind.
