My BF lives on the other side of the state and I
only get to see him about once a month. Soon, I'll see him for four days at
camp (the place where we met). He calls me every day, but I still feel lonely.
Ever since I got my BF, other guys started liking me. Should I get together
with these other guys and not tell my BF? My mom says that I can date who ever
I want, whenever I want because it's not like we're married or anything. But my
friends say that if I dated someone else while still "seeing" my BF,
it would be considered cheating. Who's right and what should I do?
Dave: What’s right
is being upfront and honest. If your cross-state buddy knows the deal, it’s not
cheating. And, considering the long distance, it is totally understandable that
you’d like to hang out with other guys. Ultimately, the only opinions that
matter are yours and his. If the two of you can find common ground, it’ll make
for a couple of happy campers.
Bill: A long
distance relationship can be like a great vacation to a faraway place. You have
great memories when you return, but if you’re determined to go back there all
the time, you’ll stop seeing all the great things about home. Tell your BF that
you love visiting him, but you want to treasure the memory, and not just think
about what a hassle it is to get together. Talk to him about seeing other
people for awhile. That way, you’ll be doing what your mom says, while still
being true to yourself.
