I'm 16 years old and I am in love with this guy. But I screwed up so many times that I pushed him so far away that now he hates me now and he told me that he never wants to see or talk to me ever again. He even sent the police to my house. I want to get over this but I don't know how. Every time I try to think of something else I always end up thinking of him. Everything reminds me of him and memories I have with him. I'm not the type of girl that feels this way for anybody. I've always been a...

Dear Dr. Love- Like so many women, I have self-esteem the size of a fruit fly. I'm not sure why. I'm doing well in life. I have a good kid, job, health, friendships, etc. but cannot seem to think of myself as a good, attractive person who deserves to be happy. This lack of self-esteem is interfering in all aspects of my life in either subtle or obvious ways. The worst impact seems to be in relationships. I cannot see myself with a man who is kind, intelligent, motivated, and handsome. I pick...

Hi Dr. Love. I've been married for 6 years, and have an 11 mo. old girl. Our marriage is in serious trouble. As much as we've shared, I just cannot stand to be around him most of the time. We've undergone a tremendous amount of stress in the past year - we bought a house that was too expensive for us (he insisted), I've lost three jobs in two years, and we're running out of $$. But before all of this, we were on rocky ground anyway. He's emotionally unavailable, and stays that way despite...

My first marriage ended in a divorce with my first husband leaving me for another woman. I have since remarried, however, I still have the fear that he will leave me too. He has developed a friendship with a woman from work, which for me is deja vous. This is how the affair of my first husband happend. I have talked to my current husband about my first husband and all my fears. His reaction and response is that he loves me and I should just get over it. He says I'm driving him crazy with me...

Dear Dr. Love, I am not necessarily asking advice for my love life. My relationship is unfufilling. I am not getting my needs met by him, and I have decided to do nothing about it. I am putting the whole thing on hold until I can come back to it later and make informed decisions not based on fear, emotions, begging him to pick me, or any other dysfunctional behavior. I want him only if he loves me, which frankly is questionable and I am not convinced he is capable. He asked for 'space' again...

Dear Dr Love, I met my girlfriend Carly on 21st February 2001, the night we met we had no idea what would happen, what would become of us. Five months later and we are apart, we broke up three months ago, my life was turned inside out, upside down when she left me, I left college, I quit my job and I turned into a monster that no-body, not even my friends knew. I drank, I smoked, I took drugs, just to numb the pain of losing her, I still feel cut up inside, she went back to her ex-b/f and he...

Hi, normally I don't do this kind of thing, I usually just let life happen, but I think I may have really messed up. I'm a very emotional person, and my boyfriend understands that, but lately i've been very overly emotional. To get to the point, last night my boyfriend of a year my longest relationship as of yet) who is just wonderful and loves me as much as I love him, told me that he was going to finish his Master's degree at Miami University (we live in Tampa right now). Mind you this may...
