Seize the Day!

Dear Miss U,
…This past May I visited him at his school and I found out he cheated on me and kissed another girl one of his first weekends at school. I found out from the girl he kissed. He said it was because he felt pressured because no one else had a girlfriend. He cried and felt so awful and knew that if he told me when it happened I would’ve broken up with him and we wouldn’t have spent 2 years together. Now he is abroad and going out with his friends and traveling, but most of the times he is with a friend that also has a girlfriend. He is going on a week-long trip without his friend, and with other guys without girlfriends and I can’t shake the feeling that he will feel pressured again… [read more]

If You Want It Enough

Dear Miss U,
I met my boyfriend via an international dating site that I joined out of boredom and curiosity. I am in the US and he is in England. We instantly hit it off and have been talking/texting/Facetiming ever since. We talked on the phone for 6 hours once, and almost every night we talk until I fall asleep to his voice on the phone. nI am visiting him in London in a few weeks and he plans to come here for a month for Christmas. I am recently divorced and I am so scared by how I feel for him. I have never had a connection to someone like this before, and he tells me the same. I can’t go a few hours without texting him and he can’t either… [read more]

Together is Home

Dear Miss U,
My partner lives in the Caribbean, and I live in Canada. Recently, we have been considering where we will settle together. I always assumed that they were coming to Canada to live with me, as they had expressed displeasure with living where they are currently, but recently, they have asked me if I would live over there. I have concerns about living over there, but I love my partner and do not want to give up on our relationship over location. Any ideas on a compromise? [read more]

Not Giving Up

Dear Miss U,
I’ve met him many times within a year from TX to NY, when I asked him to come visit, even offered to buy a ticket, his pride would be in the way or he would tell me, “That isn’t top priority.” I know he has things to deal with, and I respect that, but I feel it’s not fair that he hasn’t visited me… [read more]

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Dear Miss U,

I live in the U.S. while he lives in the U.K. It isn’t easy and I feel as if I am the only one putting in the effort for keeping communication open. I understand we both have busy lives but every time I write him, he always responds with one-word answers. Every time I bring up my feelings about it, he gets defensive and blows it off. I feel so ignored and so lonely… [read more]

Young Struggles

Dear Miss U,

My boyfriend has recently moved to college states away. It’s only been a month in and he is saying it’s really hard. He admitted to me that he has been avoiding calling me or Facetime because he says it makes him sad (but also happy, but mostly sad) which I kind of understand. He is sort of pushing me away by doing that, and our text conversations aren’t the same; he can’t keep a conversation going… [read more]

Sad and Jealous

Dear Miss U,
I am the jealous type!!! I have tried everything to try to fight this ugly part of me. … She is going to a concert all weekend. We won’t get to talk at night until 5 am (3-hour time difference) I trust her and I love her, but I am struggling with this. I don’t know if it’s that deep down I don’t trust her or if it’s the fact that I rely so much on getting to talk to her… [read more]

This Flag is Red

Dear Miss U,
I’ve known this man for over 25 years. We met via our jobs. He worked in Florida & me in New Jersey. I was married and he was engaged when we met. There was an immediate connection from the moment we met and we became good work friends but I always wondered what it would have been like. My marriage of 21 years fell apart and I was divorced in 2004. I spent 9 years trying to get my life back together and not feel like I was a failure. I didn’t date as my confidence with men was shot and I was pretty miserable. Now, fast forward to April 2013. He emailed me out of the blue, sending me a video, and before you know it we’re talking on the phone every day since! [read more]

The Power Of Success Stories

Dear Miss U,
I’m in an LDR and it’s crazy how I met my boyfriend – on a video game!! We both love each other so much but the problem is that we miss each other so much sometimes and it hurts a lot. I don’t know what to do. We usually spend all day together texting and we still have to wait for like 2 or 3 years until we meet and that’s a very long time so I really don’t know what to do… [read more]
