Courting Disaster: Feb. 20, 2009
Courting Disaster, my weekly comic about sex, love, and relationships updates every Friday. You’ll laugh your pants off.
This week’s question…
A reader writes… My boyfriend and I have been together for a year and a half. About six or eight months ago he started changing. Before that, he had a very big sexual appetite, a slight romantic side and showed interest in me. Now, he’s very distant and I am the persuer. I have confronted him about if he’s cheating and he is very defensive and hostile. I’ve seen text messages and found them inappropriate for friends. After the last incident and the denial and bullying, I decided to get checked at the clinic and — surprise — I have “Trich.” I told him and his reaction was, “How did that happen?” Then he claimed he never touched anyone else. I explained that only one of us has the means and opportunity. What is sad in all this it has been four days since the call from the clinic and he has said nothing, not “I’m sorry,” not “We need to talk,” not “You cheated on me.” The days just went by as if nothing happened. I’m not sure how to deal with it, I have never had an STD. I have recieved and taken my medication, but I’m not sure what he has done. If he did not cheat, he would be angry, wouldn’t he? If he did cheat, wouldn’t he ‘fess up?
Don’t answer here… go on over to the CD site and offer some advice.
