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.

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.
