"I fake-dumped my BF...and now he hates me."
I fake-dumped my BF to test his feelings for me. Later, I tried to tell him it was just a test and that I didn’t really mean it. I asked if he would forgive me, but he said no. Now, he’s going out with another girl and won’t even talk to me.
Dear Heart Broken,
Poor guy! And now, poor you! I’m afraid your test taught him not to fully trust you and you learned (the hard way) not to play games with other people’s hearts. When you pretend-dumped him, he must have been devastated. No wonder he doesn’t want to say, “Sure, let’s go back to where we were.” Breakups hurt, but you will survive. Stay busy and, from now on, if you ever want to know how a guy feels, ask him, don’t trick him.
