How should I react after going through his phone to my boyfriend emotionally cheating through text messages with his ex?
Black woman messaging on modern cellphoneKetut Subiyanto. My boyfriend is emotionally cheating on me. I say this because he hasn't physically been involved with anyone else to my knowledge. I looked at his text messages and saw he had still been talking with an ex from several years ago. He is big on not having extra friends especially from past relationships, a concern he brought up in the initial process of our relationship and I seemingly agreed out of respect. In the messages, she seems interested in him and makes steady advances. Though he playfully rejects her, he never ends the conversation but rather on most occasions is the initiator. He argues that he can't talk to me about things and I wouldn't understand, but he never gives me a try. I talk to him about everything. Only him. I know that if the shoe was on the other foot he would be pissed, yet when I bring up my feelings he tells me it's just me being insecure. He also told me I shouldn't have looked through his phone. I think he’s wrong for doing this. What should I do? - Cyn.Read full story

How do I get rid of a friend that has no other friends?
My friend Brielle is very sweet. We met when she moved into my building last year. However, I seem to be her only friend. She rarely dates and when she does her relationships always fall in my hands. She constantly talks about them, asks me for advice, plans dates where I am involuntarily the third wheel. This gets kind of tiring when my friends separate from her invite me out and I feel obligated to bring her along or at least invite her with the hope that she declines. She rarely declines Shockie. My other friends aren't too fond of her and they have started backing away from me when she is around. She invites me over for movie nights and sleepovers and sometimes this can be fun, other times I feel a little weird. We are very much in our 20's. How do I get rid of a third wheel I never asked for? -NYashlyn.Read full story
