Dear Carol

How long should I wait for my ex?


 
I’m 13. My boyfriend and I broke up a month ago. He says he still likes me a lot, but he just needs some “space” and “time.” I really, really like him, and I told him I’d wait ‘til he’s ready. But it’s been so long that I’m tired of waiting. I want to ask him about it, but if I do, he might find me annoying.
 

Dear Tired of Waiting,

Most breakups don’t come with tidy explanations. Rather than breaking up with you outright, he may have though it would be easier to say he needed time. Ha! Easier for him, not you. Please don’t wasted any more hours waiting for his text or call. Not only does waiting in the wings as Little Miss Available put you in an unflattering light, it’s eating up your valuable time. Get out there and laugh with friends, and remind yourself that you are too young and wonderful to be moping and hoping about one boy. If way down the road you two pick up where you left off, fine. For now though, don’t be sitting at the intersection wishing it would happen.
