Advice from Melissa: I’m waiting for him to get serious
There is a guy I have been seeing for a long time off and on. I care about him very much but I really do not see this relationship ever developing or going anywhere. Old habits die hard and I keep waiting for him to make it into something more serious however I know that’s never going to actually happen. Should I keep waiting?
It can be so easy to find yourself living a lover’s version of Groundhog Day. You wake up every day hoping for a change only to be stuck on the same broken record of a relationship. You deserve better. If he truly cares about you, then he needs to make a move. Don’t be afraid to stand up and be frank with him. Tell him you need to know if this is ever going to be something or if it is just a waste of your time. If he can’t give you an answer, you may have to be the strong one and just cut the proverbial cord. You are never going to be happy if you continue this circle of wonder. Someone needs to make a move, why can’t that someone be you?
