DEAR CHRISTINE: He’s playing games with my heart

Dear Christine,

I’M 17 years old and I slept with a guy who claimed he loved me. A week later he dumped me. Now a month later he’s back saying he still loves me but I have a new boyfriend.

What do you suggest I do, go with the old one that I love or stay with what I have now? I must admit though I still don’t feel loved by either.

– CONFUSED

 

Dear Confused,

Here’s what is happening. Some guys have figured out that if they say they love you, you’ll have sex with them. You don’t have any real feelings for them, it seems, so why should they? What that means is that you have very low self-esteem. You are craving their attention so much, that you’re willing to call them a boyfriend even if they don’t really care about you or you care about them. Keep this up and I can almost guarantee that you’re going to wind up in trouble. Talk to a friend and hear what advise they give. You could probably use some professional counselling, but it may not be that easy for you to get it.

Overcoming issues of low self-esteem can be difficult to do alone, so do try to get some help.

–Christine
