I’ve been in a relationship on and off for seven years. Lately I don’t feel like having sex with my boyfriend, and when he kisses me I just want to throw up. I think this has a lot to do with the fact that he cheated on me in the past. I forgave him, but recently I ran across his cell phone bill and saw that he still speaks to the girl he cheated with. I’m unhappy about this because I feel I let my values down. The problem is that I’m scared to leave him because I’m trying to finish school, and I can’t afford to pay my bills with my current paycheck. Should I leave him now or wait till I finish school and get a salary increase?

What I can’t stomach is that you see puking your way to a diploma as an option. M’ija, nobody should go through that. Gulp down some Alka-Seltzer to steel your nerves and send him packing. Then move in with a friend or find a roommate to share living expenses until you finish school.
