She Says She Likes ME, but She Won't Break Up with Her Boyfriend ...
Dear Dr. TRuth,
I have been good friends with this girl for about 5
years and I started to
have feelings for her about 1 year ago and never had
the courage to tell her
because I thought it might ruin our
But about 4 months ago I
told her about my feelings towards her and how I
have liked her for sometime.
The problem is that she has been going out with another guy
for about 7 months.
trouble is that she and I began to see each other
allot and she started to fall
for me also.
She says she loves me but she doesn't
want to break up with her
boyfriend because she says she is "afraid."
loves me but she also loves
What should I do? Try to wait things
out, or forget about her?
Dear "in love"
Your "friend" is playing a dangerous game.
believe you can be attracted to two guys but you can

the palm of her hand.
Secondly, look at how she is
behaving towards her boyfriend. She is flirting
outrageously with another guy. In a sense, she is
being emotionally unfaithful to him!
What does this

fair to her boyfriend for her to behave this way. Tell
her that you don't think it is fair and honorable to
carry on secretly while she is in another
Then, stop seeing her completely. Let
her miss you for a while. If she really loves you, she
will choose you. If she doesn't come to you on her
own, she never loved you anyway.
Make her choose, and,
while you're at it, think enough of yourself to find
someone who puts you first, not second, to someone she
