Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking surviving a heartbreak -- that wasn't your choice in the first place!!
M Reader VenusAMV asked:
My BF broke up with me for the 3rd time and wants to be "just friends" -- and he even got his parents involved in our break-up! But I want us back together! How can I get him to change his mind so that I can stop myself from crying?!
And M Girl's answer is:
"I know how much getting your heart broken hurts -- TRUST me! But what I've learned along the way is that at the end of the day, you can't change how someone feels. I've done my fair share of getting my ex back into my life, but in the end I realized that I was the one making him like me again instead of him liking me by choice. And you know what? I realized that I don't want to be with a guy who doesn't want me in their life! Psst! There are plenty of guys who will appreciate you for who you are -- and they won't want to spend one minute away from you! Another thing I learned is that if things haven't been working out time and time again, they might not work out again in the future. But this is all stuff that you have to learn for yourself. As far as his parents are concerned, I think you need to talk to your BF in private. Let him know what's bothering you and that he hurt your feelings. The best thing to do is to talk it through rather than argue. If you talk it out, you may realize what you both want by listening to each other. The break-up may be easier on the both of you in the end, or you could decide to give it another shot. But you won't know any of that until you talk it out -- so give it a shot!
