Dear Michelle Valentine,

I’ve just started dating this great guy. He is a few years younger than me, and seems to party a lot. For instance, we only go out during the week because he likes to spend his weekends with the guys.

I really like him, and we have a lot of fun when we are together. We even talk on the phone hours at a time during the week. But on the weekend – POOF! – he’s nowhere to be found. He doesn’t even return my phone calls.

Should I keep seeing him, demand he start taking me out on the weekend, or dump him?



Dear Wonder,

I wonder why you think this guy is so great when he does not seem to be treating you well. Weekends are meant for couples who want to spend more time with each other. Seems he would rather be with his friends – and most likely, with other girls.

Keep in mind that if this guy is still in the party stage of his life – while you are ready to settle down:

This relationship may not work because your needs are not getting met.

I suggest you have a small talk with him telling him how you feel.

If he doesn’t seem to care about your feelings, you have your answer on whether to stay with this young man or not.
