**** Admin Note ****
The site has been redesigned, but nothing crazy. Small changes will be coming throughout the week. And before anyone asks THE OLD FORMAT IS NOT COMING BACK! It was buggy and caused a lot of behind the scene problems, but I am all about my readers … so any criticisms or problems are welcomed (email is best). This weeks poll is about the look of the new site.
Another submission from a concerned reader.
I have been reading your blog for awhile and I LOVE it. I was wondering if you can help me out with my situation.
I have known my boyfriend for 5 years and we broke up when I went to SU for two years. When I graduated I move to Dallas to get a job and be near him. We got back together, but I really don’t see any growth in our relationship. He says he loves me, I mean the world to him, and I will never know it … but I don’t see it. His friends and parents are always saying he talks about me & how he misses but that doesn’t occur when he is around. Ever since I got back I have been supporting him. I pay any bill he needs paid (his car note is my car note and I OWN my car…LOL). He does not work cause he can’t find a job. But as of lately he doesn’t call or come see me, always stating gas is too high since we live 30 minutes away from each other. I am always arguing with about quality time, since I never see & when I do his best friend is always around. I really dont know what to do. I believe he loves me but he doesn’t show it. All I can think about is “Teach Me” by Musiq Soulchild … do you have any advice for me… thanks for the blog.
This one actually seems like a straight forward open and shut case.
The n***a is no good and should be dropped!
I tried hard, really really hard to justify his actions because as a man I hate to go badmouthing a comrade if possible … but there is just no getting around it.
I talk about selfish women, the archaic principle of chivalry, and all my gripes and problems with a significant portion of the female population, but nothing you’re asking for is crazy or ludicrous considering you’re his girlfriend. Also, that n***a needs a job! I hate golddigging women (which you obviously aren’t), but any person (especially any real man) should be able to handle his own sh*t business.
And I can’t help but think that if your paying his car note … he better be able to gas it up to see you. I mean … you’re paying for the car. If I get my girl a cell phone … best believe she needs to use it to call me!
In the end … dude is selfish and sounds like user. Drop him and move on.
Don’t do it any “Waiting to Exhale” fashion or go have the “n****a ain’t sh*t” session with your girlfriends. Simply tell him your tired of supporting him without receiving the love & respect you deserve.
And that’s coming from the leader of the “Stop Simping” movement … so that’s serious. If he has trouble comprehending, send him to the site.
Lastly, don’t let this ruin you. Too often do good women get sour and blame every man walking for the actions of one a$$hole unenlightened brotha. Stay strong … there are plenty of us good guys out there.

She has left is a$$! I repeat … his a$$ has been left.
