Dear Libby ?I’ve been dating my current boyfriend for over a year and a half. He is a wonderful guy. But I have this problem. Lately my boyfriend has been spending extensive amounts of time online talking to “people” on his messenger services.
I was on his computer the other night and saw that he’d been visiting personal ad websites and searching for girls from our area! He claimed that he just visited those sites because it amused him. I don’t know whether to believe him or not. ? A Shocked Snoop
Dear Shocked ?Take it from me; snooping will always get you in trouble, because no matter what you find, the issue will inevitably get turned around. But I suppose you’re not looking for me to lecture you about that.
Thus, on to your letter: I have to say that your boyfriend is acting very suspicious. I suggest you back off on this relationship immediately.
You both need to reevaluate how you feel about each other. If you do decide to stay in the relationship, be prepared to take some time to heal the wounds this has caused. Talk to your boyfriend and make the decision where you want to go from here.
Dear Libby ? I have a huge problem that’s affecting my work life. You see, I run this advice column for a local newspaper and nobody ever writes me. It’s frustrating because I know there are plenty of people out there who have problems who could use some quality advice! I only got one letter this week! One letter! I’m not sure anyone is even reading my column at all. Do you have any advice? ? Dear Ybbil
Dear Ybbil ? I’m not quite sure what to tell you. However, I probably would stay away from the whole desperate cry for help that is writing a letter to yourself begging for letters. It just comes across as a wee bit sad.
Other than that, I’m sure people will write you if they really need your help.
