Dear Dr. Love,Hi! Well. . where to begin. I love helping others to solve their love problems cuz my friend and I are great at it. But I sometimes can’t solve my own. Well. . . here we go. . . I have liked this guy for a VERY long time. When I finally found out that he liked me, we started dating, not knowing that my very close friend liked him too. When we started fighting about him, I decided that our friendship was more important and being the fool I was, I dumped him.Now I found out that she’s going out with him. Well, I am so upset, so my guy friend(just a friend) wants to beat him up. I told him not to, but he’s sweet, and doesn’t want to see me hurting. I want to know what to do about my friend. Now, there’s this guy that I like, but he’s got a girlfriend. I know I can’t break them up and all, but he always tells me how much he likes me. and he also sez that he doesn’t like his girlfriend, I told him to get a life as a joke, and he said to me, that he could have a GREAT life if he broke up with his girlfriend, went out with me, married me, had kids, and so on. . . . he kept babbaling about ‘OUR’ future. I would love for us to have a future, but he won’t make any moves with his girlfriend!HELP! Thanx alot. . . . . and maybe can you try to give my friend and I a love problem to solve to see how good we are and if we’re any good, do you think we could help you? Thanx! Later! Love
What I would do with this situation if I were you: Ask this guy, ‘If you like me as much as you say, how come you’re not making a move to end the relationship that you’re in?’ Maybe this guy, like many people, is scared of intimacy, and only capable of loving from afar. But, you can smoke him out, by refusing to have a relationship until he makes up his mind.If you give this guy ice in winter, no attention whatsoever until he makes a decision, we are going to find out if he is brave enough to have an intimate relationship. Good luck.As for your Love Quiz, here goes: You have a date with your boyfriend, and he arrives an hour late. What do you do when he arrives? I’ll post the correct answer next week. And, your idea of a love quiz is so great, I plan to add this feature to my site. And, then you will have lots of chances to test your skill. Thanks for offering to help answer love questions for me, but, you see, because of liability reasons, as a doctor, I have to take responsibility for the answers that I provide. But, anytime you want to send a suggestion to me on how you think a posted problem should be answered, don’t hesitate.
