I’ve been having a rough time with my current boyfriend, and really, I am considering leaving him. He is selfish, cheap, inconsiderate, lies a lot for no reason, and above all, my family can’t stand him!
Then, last week I was at my sister’s house and I met her co-worker who is such a cool guy.
We hit it off immediately; this wasn’t planned, but he’s like a breath of fresh air and we’ve been talking every day since then. We have so much in common, it’s crazy.
So much so I sometimes forget to check in with my boyfriend and he seems to be getting the hint that something is going on.
Should I just end it with my current man? He really has worked my last nerve and I feel this new guy is like a sign that I should go.
He is single, no kids, a good job and already my sister likes him for me. What should I do?
Ready to move on
Dear Ready to move on,
I can tell that you are at the end of your rope with your current relationship, but before you totally end it, you have to take a look at you and decide what you’ve learnt and what you may not want to repeat again going forward into the next relationship.
If you do not do this, there is a definite possibility that you will repeat the same situation again.
What truly concerns me though, is that you are only now seriously considering leaving this man because there is a potential beau on the horizon.
To me you should have dealt with your lack-luster relationship a while ago and then your path would have been clear to make a decision about starting something new.The irony is that you are now in an emotional affair with this new guy and you are completely blocking out your boyfriend.
You are now the cheater and HE is now the victim. This is nuts! So before you jump into another fire, please take the time to sort out the one that you are in now.
There is no rush to run into a new relationship, quite frankly; you and this new guy could just become friends, taking it slow and seeing where it goes from there.
But please end it with your current beau… it’s not fair to him at all. All the best,
