ASK REAL GUYS
I Don’t Understand
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: I have a friend who is on SSI, and all he does every day is watch movies and smoke marijuana. He has a girlfriend that works two jobs, and she does things for him all the time despite the fact that he cheated on her in the past. His girlfriend knew all about the other woman, but she decided to stick around anyway. Now he wants to be with the other woman, who he claims to love and miss very much. His girlfriend is worried that he will go back to her. My question is: How can an independent woman deal with a man like that? What does she see in him?
Avery: I think that whatever your friend is doing with this man is OK with her, as evidenced by the fact that she’s been sticking around. You may look at her relationship and see many holes in it, but she obviously doesn’t. If your friend asks you about her relationship then you can tell her, but for now, I wouldn’t worry about it.
