Dear Dish-it: Boyfriend vs Cuter Guy

Apr 06, 2013

Dear Dish-it,

A boy asked me out, but I'm already going out with someone else. The new boy is cuter than my boyfriend, but if I say yes to the cuter one, I'd be cheating. My current boyfriend has anger issues so I have no clue how to tell him that it's over. Please help me!

Dear Love Triangle,

Here's the thing. When you're in a happy relationship, it means you really like your boyfriend. You shouldn't be swayed by a cuter boy. Looks aren't everything. The most important things in a relationship are that you can respect and trust each other. Dumping your boyfriend just so you can go out with a cuter boy isn't very trustworthy.

However, if you aren't happy in your relationship with your current boyfriend, you should either try to work on your issues, or get out of the relationship, not because of the cuter boy, but because you respect your current boyfriend enough not to string him along. Breaking up with him may hurt him, but in the end, you're doing him a favor by allowing him to find someone else.

Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]
