'Fess Up: Are you too picky when it comes to guys?
My relationships never last long. I’ve never been dumped—I always dump my BFs. Two weeks is the longest I’ve had a boyfriend. I’m too picky and expect a guy to be perfect. If he ignores me when he’s hanging with his friends, I usually break up with him. Is that bad? Should I give a guy more chances?
Not every relationship is supposed to go the distance. But you’re asking for trouble if you expect perfection or want a guy to pay attention to you every second. Give him breathing room. A boyfriend should not act as if you’re invisible, but it’s healthy for him to hang with his friends and for you to spend time with yours. You could also tell him how you feel rather than dumping him. Is it possible you’re the one who needs some space? Consider taking a vacation from the whole boyfriend thing, even a short one, while you figure out what you’re looking for. Going with someone can be fun, but not when you’re changing BFs as often as you’re changing socks.
