Relationships Gone Bad
By Deanna, age 16, New York
I have a friend who recently broke up with her boyfriend because she accused him of cheating on her. Now she wants him back. This happens all the time! Before they were a couple, she never used to like him. It was only after two months into the relationship that she couldn't get enough of him. The only reason she started talking to him is because she noticed he was talking to a girl she didn't like. Now here she is heartbroken and wanting him back.
What would I do? I would tell him that I still like or love him, and ask him if he still feel the same way. But don't come on too strong! If you do, then he'll get the idea that you're desperate and that will drive him away. Keep it cool. You're probably thinking, What if he moves on? What if he doesn't like me anymore?
YOU NEED TO MOVE ON ALSO! Don't let him get the idea that you can't get over him. There are way too many fishes in the sea waiting to be caught by you. You have too much pride to be sprung over the same boy for the rest of your life. It's true! But if you love him, then go for it! Take the chance. You should know what's good for you and your love life.
Have you had a boyfriend who cheated on you? Maybe once, twice, or five times? My advice to you is to let go. If he cheats the first time, it's a 75% chance he will do it again and again. No excuses! No one deserves to go through all the pain and drama just to feel loved. If you stay in that relationship it will only waste your time! Don't do it to yourself. I've seen girls crying over a boy wondering when he will be faithful. Meanwhile their boyfriends are out having fun!
So my advice to teen girls is to let go of bad relationships because they will only get worse. Sometimes it's good to let go because, as we all know, no relationship will last forever! Seriously. It will cause problems and stress. There's no telling when the hurt will stop. Let it go because no one deserves to get hurt.
