Where Do We Go From Here?
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: My boyfriend and I have been together for almost a year now. A few things have happened during our relationship, and I have also had some emotional problems and issues from past relationships that have affected this one. We have fought more than we probably should, and now I feel like our relationship is in trouble and needs to change or we will break up. What can I possibly do?
Matt: It’s important to learn from experiences of past relationships, but be careful of bringing too much baggage into a relationship with a new person. It sounds like you need to get your emotional issues figured out and your head straight. If that’s not the key, then talk with him in a non-confrontational way and express your feelings. Tell him how you feel about him and what you’d like to see different for both of you – be constructive. If he’s not on board with you, then perhaps it’s time to move on.
