Long Distance Dilemma

August 15, 2016
Hey Wendy,

About six months ago, I met a man on the Internet that I really like. He likes me too, and I'm 100% sure I'd tell him I love him if it weren't for a little problem – he’s in a relationship. I don't think their relationship will last. They have been together for six months and have broken up and gotten back together two times. Should I tell him I love him? I have no idea what to do.

It’s a long-distance dilemma.

Hey Natalie,

Stop feeding this fantasy, it’s not even a very good one. You’re distance challenged and he’s relationship challenged.

Should you tell him you love him? Have you ever met him? I say let him stay in the relationship he has. Try for someone fresh, and when Internet dating I want you to use the search criteria options and let your online dating site only show you available men within a 25 mile radius from your front door. Get out there with a real person, who’s available for you, and without the entanglements of messy relationships.
