Courting Disaster, my weekly comic about sex, love, and relationships updates every Friday. You’ll laugh your pants off.

This week’s question…

Since the newspaper column that this comic accompanies spends all of its space discussing answers to previous questions, we’ll turn to another question e-mailed by a reader of the Courting Disaster Web site…

A reader writes… My boyfriend broke up with me last year for no apparent reason after 2 years of dating in a long-distance relationship. I have been miserable ever since. I love him and honestly want to spend the rest of my life with him. I feel like my other half has been ripped away.

I spoke to him after a few months of silence a couple of weeks ago. He said that he has missed me, and that he ended things because “it was starting to feel like a job.”

I asked him if he’d want to give us another chance and he said “I wouldn’t be opposed to the idea, but I dont want to date right now, but maybe in time.”

I want to keep in touch with him so that hopefully, when I go back up in May, his feelings might change. I dont want to smother him, though. I want him to love me again but I’m not sure if my hope is a false hope, or even how to go about things. What should I do?

Don’t answer here… go on over to the CD site and offer some advice.
