Breaking Up/Relationship In Crisis
Q from a Female, Junior student at University of
Florida: I broke up with my boyfriend over a
year ago, but I can't stop thinking about him. I've
dated other guys, but nobody seriously. Will I ever
get over him?
A: Probably. One year isn't really a long
time to still be thinking about your old boyfriend,
especially when you haven't established another
serious relationship. It's important to look at why
you still think about him. Is it the relationship
with him that you miss, or just having a
relationship? Why did you break up? Often times it
can be easier to remember the good times with your
boyfriend, while forgetting why the relationship
didn't work out. Remember: One of our tasks in life
is learning to let go. It's hard.

with sexual messages, sexual exploitation, and all
manner of sexual criticism. But our society is by
