Having his cake and eating it too!

by Janine Stizzo
(Citrus Heights CA)

Me and my boyfriend live together, however, we are in the process of breaking up. Last night he brought another female home and told me to sleep on the couch. My clothes are still in the dresser and my stuff is still on the nightstand is this appropriate behavior to make me stay out on the couch and allow my boyfriend to entertain another women in our bedroom?

Appropriate Behavior?
by: Ms P Etiquette


No, this is not even reasonable, however the very fact that you are asking this question reveals so much about this relationship and its dissolution. Pack up and run as far away from him as you can. That is appropriate behavior. Good luck to you.

What a JERK!

I wonder if his "new" girlfriend is bright enough to figure out that he will eventually treat her with the same cruel disrespect.

Silver Lining

What an A$$!

In no way is this appropriate behavior but the fact that you allowed it to happen really speaks volumes of how greatly your self-esteem has suffered and endured through this relationship. Breaking up is THE BEST THING for you sweetie, even if you don't see it right now.

My educated guess is you are not interested in breaking up with this guy, that he wants it but honey, love yourself or have your friend love you until you can love your self! You are way too good for this creep! That is exactly what he is, a creep with no manners, no game, no anything - and the silver lining in all this? There are 3:
1) You will eventually get back your self-esteem
2) You know now what you don't want in a man
3) You know you deserve much better, so much better; someone who will treat you properly!

If you need support or someone to help walk you through this, someone strong to rely on, feel free to email me at the following address Brittanys01 at the famous g account.
