Win Back His Respect

Dear Sugar
My boyfriend just broke up with me and is now dating a girl that he works with. We were together for over a year and I miss him. Throughout our relationship he always told me that he didn't think I loved him anymore. Of course I loved him, but I'll admit that I thought he was more into me than I was him. Now I'm alone and he's with a much younger girl and in danger of dropping out of college. I want him back. What should I do? Stranded

Dear Stranded
You're sad and jealous and you probably didn't treat him as nicely as you should have. When there is an imbalance in a relationship and one person shows their love more than the other, the person who isn't as loved is going to feel insecure. Now he's found someone else and you don't like it - you don't have your lackey anymore. If you want him back, just try and be his friend right now. If you can gain his respect back, you may have a shot at a more balanced relationship down the road. Fight hard for him and show him how much you really do love him. It's worth a shot.
