Dear Carol

Think it's worth settling for any guy? Guess again...


 
I have a boyfriend, but he lives in a different state. I talk about him a lot at school, and my friends are getting annoyed with me about it. I’m too nervous to call him, and he’s never online. We have been going out for three months, but I haven’t seen him for two months. I’m kind of sad all the time. Do you have any suggestions about how I could get happy again?
 

Dear Unhappy,

It’s better not to have a Valentine at all than to have one who’s not there for you. Some long-distance connections survive through e-mails, calls and letters. But if you and this boy hardly communicate, what’s the point? You can find the courage to write or call, or you can decide this pain isn’t worth it and that it’s time to step away. When you’re under a boy’s spell, it’s not always easy to break. But it is doable. Be independent, talk to your buds about other topics, get more involved in the here-and-now, and you’ll soon be your cheerful self. Besides, there will be other BFs in your future, I promise. Even ones in your own state!
