Dear Dolores: I’ve been in a relationship for 10 years. From the beginning I knew he had a girlfriend and that they lived together, but our attraction for each other was so strong that we plunged ahead. Lately he’s changed. We used to see each other every week, but in the last six months we only see each other once a month. I adore him, but I wonder if he loves me. I don’t think I can live without him. ¿Qué hago?

Dolores Dice: Man Handled!

Dear Dolores: I met this charming guy at work and he cajoled me into giving him my phone number. We’ve texted each other a few times trying to know each other. I have now moved away to go to college and although I come home quite often, he always has an excuse not to meet. Then, sometimes I don’t hear from him for weeks, and then he says he didn’t get my message or that his phone battery went dead. But he still hints that he’s interested in me. I’m so confused and I don’t know what to do.

Dear Dolores: I’ve been going steady with my novio for eight months. He’s 34 and I’m 25. I’m a professional track and field athlete about to get my degree in education. Out of the blue, he’s just told me he’s not sure he’s the man who could make me happy. He also said that since he has finished college and I have not, he has other plans and isn’t comfortable with our relationship. I have the impression he’s looking for excuses to dump me.
