Question
Hi,

I been dating my boyfriend for a year and a half, and just last week he told me he need some time. I don't understand why since we were doing ok the night before.
I'm feeling so sad and don't know what to do.

Please Help!!!

Answer
Norma,

sometimes when things get serious between a couple, the guy (or the girl) freak out. He probably saw how much he was enjoying himself and how much he loved spending time with you and the relationship was growing very strong and to him, it looked like long term commitment. Give him the space he needs and try not to think too much about it while the time goes by. This way, he will see that with or without him you can live and be happy but you don't want that and that you two will choose to be together.

Hope this helps,

Becky

Expertise

I can answer almost everything. I am religious person who strongly believes in G-d. If spiritual guidance is also something that you are seeking for, then I am careful and competent in that region. I am also very aware that it's hard to ask for help, with that being said, I am sensitive to others feelings and have gone through hardships in relationships, which demonstrates a quality of empathy and consciousness when it comes to everyday dating situations. I can answer break-up confusions/confusions in dating in general. I can NOT read minds and can answer to the best of my ability in regards to the detail you provide me. With that in consideration, please do not send me pages of information. Pick the most important and effective way to explain the problem and we can make this our problem and our solution together.

Experience

I have been in confusing relationships. Most of all I was in a 5 year relationship that really helped me in developing my intellect and sensitivities, which also played a huge role in discovering myself and those around me.
