Original Visitor's Question from a 13-20 year old Female
My boyfriend and i had been together for two and a half months. i will be 17 may 15th and he will be 20 june 4th. he talked about marriage and a kid, before said anything about it. we recently broke up. he said that we were going to remain friends. he lives with my aunt, and i go there almost every week-end. he said he didn't trust me, after a short pause, he said yet. he said he still loves me, and i love him. i have never been with a guy longer than three weeks before him. i normally get bored with the guy. but this was different. i want him to be happy, and if that means apart from me, then so be it. but after the break up, we sat in the living room and talked like we always do. it was so nice, but when i had to leave, it was hard not giving him a hug or a kiss. i dont know what to do. i am scared that while i am with my dad in the summer, i will lose all touch with him if he moves or gets a new girl friend. i want to know if the "yet" means we might get back together. i dont know why he doesnt trust me. we had decided on a mon. that i would go over and spend the night on sat. like normal. but my cousin didnt want me to come over. he might have been joking when he said that, but i had a bad week and didnt want to put up with any bs. so i went to my friends house, he was at work, so i couldnt call him to tell him. please help me. i really miss being with him. he made me happy. just tell me what i should do. or if you think there is a chance of getting back with him. my family said he just wants to control me, but he hasnt tried so far, and i dont think that is the case, because i dont put up with that. we were always equal when we were together. many thanks.

Hang in there sweetie
I can't believe he didn't trust you! I will admit that I was in the same situation as you were. I had been dating this one guy for six weeks (We broke up almost 6 months ago and I am still not over him) and he didn't trust me to drive him home in his car after he had been drinking. I knew he loved me, but I knew that he didn't trust me. If he's not going to trust you, then I don't think he's worth it. There is some other guy out there who will respect you and he will trust you. Hang in there, sweetie.
