Ask Marilyn: This Week's 'Strictly Personal' Question
D. in Brookline, Massachusetts, writes:
Marilyn: My mother says that my boyfriend is a first-class jerk, and I admit this is true. She also says that I'm too smart to stay with him. So why do I?
You're young, you're physically attracted to him, and you're not thinking long-term! Young men make the same mistake. So use your smarts and do one of two things: 1) Dump him, and spend your time with groups of friends until you find a better boyfriend (or one finds you); or 2) Be very, very, very careful not to do anything that might lead to a long-term involvement. The latter could wreck a significant portion of your life, if not all of it.
