Stop Letting Things Slide


Stop Letting Things Slide



Dear Miss A,

My boyfriend of three years was invited to his best friend wedding, and has not yet asked if I was interested in going, but has mention that he and his eight year old son will be attending. Even though I don’t know his friend well, I’m upset that he didn’t even consider me. Should I mention this to him or let it slide?

Dear Slipping & Sliding,I’m betting that seeing his best friend get married has struck a nerve with him. Deep down, he knows you deserve more than he’s giving you, but doesn’t want to go there. It’s easier for him if you don’t attend, so he won’t be asked about his own marriage plans.  I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you want to get married, this is not your guy. You are a place holder until he meets someone he is truly in love with and wants to marry.

Honey, there is a book you really must read. It’s called “He’s Just Not That Into You”!  Actions speak louder than words. Had you only been dating a few months, I could see him not wanting to bring you around his son, but after three years? Come on! He should be excited to introduce you to his friends, and show you off as his girlfriend. This is ridiculous. You have every reason to be upset by this.

You need to stop letting things slide, and be real with yourself. This relationship isn’t making you happy. It will be hard to go through a break up, but not any harder than being in a pseudo-relationship with a guy who’s “just not that into you”.

Let me know how things go!
