I’m prone to short-term relationships. What am I doing wrong?

Q: Although I would like to find my special someone, I am prone to short term relationships. I become disinterested quickly. Am I approaching this wrong? Or am I just attracting the wrong guys?

A: Possibly both. There’s nothing wrong with moving on, but if your nerves are beginning to dictate the length of your relationships, you may need to do some troubleshooting. Talk to someone about what you might be scared of, and then challenge yourself to stay in a relationship. (And enjoy it.) Next, yes, be careful whom you’re choosing to spend time with. Are you dating guys you have things in common with? Are you dating guys who treat you well? Are you dating guys you care about? Take things slowly when meeting new guys and keep an eye on your choices and emotions.

Q: I’m totally in love with this guy, but I don’t think he likes me. What should I do? Should I let him know how I really feel about him?

A: No. If he were a friend, we’d discuss having “the talk.” But just some random guy? If you think he doesn’t like you, he probably doesn’t. Deal.
