Ask M J

Dear M J,

                 I recently broke up with my boyfriend. Last semester I began school and he didn’t seem to support me the way I wanted him to. I would do things to make him happy and he didn’t show excitement the way I felt like he should have. Don’t get me wrong, I love him…A LOT. He keeps calling telling me he’ll change but I don’t know if I want to go down that path to be disappointed by his lack of emotion any longer. What should I do? Signed confused college student…

Dear Confused College Student,

I am so happy that you decided to write in about your dilemma! It seems to me like you’re at a point where most people find themselves at some point in their lives. It’s human nature to want others to be as in tuned with their emotions as we are. You must understand just because he doesn’t show his support the way you think he should, does not mean that he doesn’t support you and the same goes with excitement and love. If he is blowing up your phone that should show you how he feels for you. Communicate with him before going further and give him an opportunity to explain and change. Good luck Confused. I’ll be waiting to hear how things worked out.

Dear M J,

                I recently cut off all ties with my best friend because she was using me. I felt so angry when I finally found out. We have been best friends since elementary and I don’t know where our relationship went wrong. She messaged me on Facebook asking me why I won’t respond to her texts and blaming me for the condition of our relationship. Help me please M J, I am so upset! Signed Angry and Upset

Dear Angry and Upset,

If you value your friendship and want to salvage it, you should answer your friend’s Facebook message and tell her in detail why you stopped talking to her. If you don’t want to go forward with your friendship you should still tell her why to give you both closure. Thank you for asking M J and I will be waiting to hear how things worked out. Good luck!

Dear M J,

Reading the paper has allowed my transition in school to be a smooth one and I just wanted to let you guys know how much I look forward to each issue. Signed Thankful…
