Introducing Dr Love, who solves your relationship riddles in a confusing digital age
My Facebook app didn’t work for a week, which made it impossible for me to respond to my boyfriend’s messages during that time. He thinks I blocked him on purpose and is threatening to end this relationship. His jealousy makes no sense because it’s not as if I wasn’t calling him daily. I have even taken him to the store where I got my phone fixed, but he isn’t responding to my messages now. What do I do?
If he’s stupid enough to end this because of a malfunctioning app, you should end it before he does. Stop trying so hard; you deserve better. This time, find someone with a functioning brain for a change.
I think I have found someone I want to spend the rest of my life with, but she treats our relationship as little more than a casual fling. We have been together for over 7 months now, but whenever we have an argument, she always says that I shouldn’t take this too seriously because it will end at some point and we will both go our separate ways. I don’t know how to get her to understand that I want to take it seriously, and I want her to feel the same way. If she didn’t like me, we wouldn’t be together, but I don’t know if she loves me the way I love her. I want to change that and make her give this a chance. Is there anything I can do to make this happen?
There’s nothing much you can do, apart from simply treating her with the love and respect you feel for her. If she doesn’t reciprocate, you won’t feel the same way after a point. If she does, you will both reach a stage where your relationship will evolve into something stronger. Give it time. Telling her how you feel won’t necessarily mean much to her until she changes the way she sees this relationship.
