Dear Poppy, 

 

I don’t know what to do. I have an amazing boyfriend; I love him and I don’t want to lose him. We started off as friends but now I like this other guy who has been supportive but that I’ve never had the confidence to talk to. After some time I gave my friend a chance, and ever since, we’ve been dating, but I can’t get the other guy out of my head. What should I do?

Dear Confused,

 

First off, you need to evaluate your priorities. You need to take a step back and figure out what you want and what you need. You need to communicate with your boyfriend, though. Leaving him in the dark and questioning your loyalty isn’t fair to him. If he’s not making you happy, maybe you need to step away from him, but you need to communicate. Just up and leaving him for another guy isn’t right.

 

Also, make sure you know what this other guy wants. There’s no sense chasing after him if he doesn’t feel the same way. All in all: you definitely need to talk to your boyfriend. You need to think about how you actually feel about him, because the truth is, you probably wouldn’t get feelings for another guy if you truly love your boyfriend. So, talk to him and I hope you can work it out. I wish you all the best.

 

Sincerely,

      Poppy <3
