Dear Dish-it: Does He Love Me?

Jan 03, 2013

Dear Dish-it,

My boyfriend and I have been going out for 2 and a half months now, but he still hasn’t told me he loves me. Is there a problem with our relationship? Is he too afraid to admit his true feelings to me because he’s scared of how I feel about him?

Dear Boyfriend-Drama,

As you say, you’ve only been together for 2 and a half months. That’s not a very long time. Saying “I love you” is a big step. A HUGE step. When people say it too early, they’re often confusing lust for love. In the early stages of a relationship, things are really exciting. You’re having fun and discovering all the things you like about each other. But in order to know that you truly love someone, you need to experience their faults as well. And sometimes, at the beginning of a relationship, people stay on their best behavior so their faults don’t show. That’s why it’s so important not to be hasty. You need to know exactly what you’re getting into before you say those words.

Communication Is Key

But that doesn’t mean you can’t talk about your feelings. In fact, it’s important that you do. That way you’re not playing head games with each other, constantly wondering “does he still like me?” So sit down and have a chat with him. Tell him where you stand, and even if he’s not forthcoming with his feelings, flat out ask him where his head is at. If he’s into you, you can breathe easy. If he’s not, then it’s better to find out sooner rather than later. No sense giving your heart to someone who isn’t feeling it. That way, you can move on and find someone who won’t keep you guessing.

At home I tend to talk a LOT, but  the complete opposite at school, this is the reason I have little to no friends, I used to have a best friend but she moved.

Dear Friend, I am really sad about your matter. Ignore them. Yes, I do understand your feelings. You care for your family, everyone does. But Family isn't always right. If you pay attention to them you may get addicted to alc*hol too. It's normal for every person to care for their family, kith and kin. But not every person whom you care is good. I am totally not talking anything bad about your mom or you sister. But I've experienced this in my own family. Hope my message helped you out. It was a pleasure to help you out :) Thanks, Siyali (Delancy)

I grew up around violence, dr*gs and alc*hol and my mum was always fighting and on dr*gs she stopped ages ago but still drink's sometimes and these days I still think she is doing dr*gs still. My sister is addicted to dr*gs (but I wont' say what kind ) and is using them nearly every day. I know I shouldn't be getting into my mum's/sisters business but I am really worried. The other day we went and picked up my sister (who is 22 just to let you know) to go and get something for here down the street and before she got out of the car she said to my mum have u got any dot and I knew what it meant I am really worried about them and don't know what to do.
