Advice Goddess

Flee circus & Between a walk and a hard place

by Amy Alkon
Q: I have a good relationship with my boyfriend of a year except for how he Amy alkon ignores me when he s stressed. The first time this happened, he disappeared for a week and didn t respond to texts or voicemails. He later explained he d been swamped with work and apologized repeatedly. Last weekend, he again disappeared for a week. After I texted and left voicemails, he finally texted, Work is big right now. He has told me he likes me because I don’t complain or try to get his attention when he s busy. Actually, I m a wreck when he disappears. My ex would also ignore me for weeks and then text like nothing had happened. Stupid me for staying around for two years, as it ultimately ended when he texted me that he couldn’t talk to me anymore because he d gotten married.
