We’ve been together for four months and I love him so much but the problem is he cheated on me. His friends that go to his school told me the weekend of my birthday that he was with another girl and when I was with him and he was being very ‘lovey dovey.’
We were not together at the time, we were just like friends with benefits but his friends said that he and the other girl were dating two months before school started and he and I were together during those times.
He made me cry many times because every time I try to talk to him, he doesn’t listen or he says he’ll change but never does!
And now he keeps texting me, telling me he loves me and likes me but he tells his friends he doesn’t like me anymore. So he is playing two sides of the story.
I really don’t know what to do. Should I leave him alone? And its really hard because I am very close to his dad and cousin.
Dear Confused teen,
At this stage of your life, you should not be concentrating on boyfriends and love and cheating. Instead you should be thinking of your school work, on how you going to build a solid educational foundation and eventually a career. Those are crucial to your future and you should start thinking of them now.
I am not saying you should not have friends but to be involved in ‘love’ and ‘friends with benefits’ and ‘cheating’ and so on is definitely not for you right now.
