DEAR CHRISTINE: Cheating boyfriend only wants my money
I have been with my boyfriend for 20 months and he has cheated on me more times than I can count.
Lately, he hasn’t wanted to spend any time with me. We’ll meet somewhere and he’ll ask me for money. When I give it to him, he leaves right away.
I feel obligated to give him the money because we have a child together.
I am only 20 years old and have my whole life ahead of me. I hate being alone. Deep down, I don’t trust him and feel like he’s using me.

Dear Hurt and Confused,
You need to move on because he certainly has. That lack of trust is your survival instinct.
He is a cheater and a user. I urge you to establish paternity, custody and financial support for your child via the law courts if it comes to that.
If you end this relationship, you’ll have the possibility of meeting someone who is worthy of your love. So get going – and don’t look back.
