DEAR CHRISTINE – In love with a taken man
I am 20 and in love with a 23-year-old. We have been talking for almost a year now. I love this boy but ask me if he loves me and all I can say is that I do not know.
One night I was at home and he came and told me he had another woman. Four weeks later he told me where she lived. I told him I did not want to hear because when I had asked him about it before, he did not want to tell me.
He also told me her age, where she worked, how she looked and how tall she was. Again, I told him: “I don’t want to hear about this woman.”
He also told me I ought to look for a man; that if I met one who loved me I should go along.
Do you think I should leave him with this girl or fight my way through?
What exactly are you going to fight your way through?
This man has told you quite bluntly that you should find love somewhere else and, as far as I am concerned, that’s a closed case.
He has already said he is interested in someone else and the quicker you accept that, the better.
You’ll eventually get over any hurt.
Quite frankly, I don’t think he deserves you and I only hope that he does not play the same game he played with you with his new friend.
