Dump Him?

Dear GZ Advisor,
You see, I'm not so sure that my boyfriend still likes me. He talks to this other girl more than he talks to me! I want to dump him but we're working on this project together and I don't know how he'll take it. And also, if I do dump him after the project, what should I say or do to dump him? PLEASE HELP ME!
Signed, Annalise

Dear Annalise:,
Since you're not sure of your boyfriend's feelings for you the best thing to do is to have a talk with him. Explain how you're feeling as honestly and openly as you can, and then listen to what he has to say. You may find that you've misjudged his feelings OR you may find that your feelings for each other have changed. You may decide that it's not working for you to be bf/gf anymore. The conversation may not be easy but at least you won't be wasting any more time, and risking hard feelings, guessing about things.

If you decide to break up you may choose to still be friends. If that's the case, you can continue working on If not, you can plan how to proceed with respect to the project so that you still accomplish your activity.

The main thing to remember is that when you speak honestly about your feelings, and when you treat people with respect, conversations are easier no matter what the relationship.

Good luck,
GZ Advisor
