You Asked: Should I Make Him Leave His Girlfriend?

Dear Sugar,

I've known this guy for about two years now. At first, he was very interested but I had just gotten out of a relationship and wasn't completely over the breakup. We had made a few dates but I always stood him up. I guess I just wasn't ready. Three months ago, I ran into him. We had lunch and a great time hanging out. There was amazing chemistry but — he has a girlfriend!

For the past three months we've still been hanging out, kind of a friends-with-benefits thing, but I'm falling for him and he's falling for me. He's never said he wants to leave her for me, but I'm crazy about him and really want to be together. What should I do?

Dear Falling in Love Laura,

I think it's time to have a big talk and tell him exactly how you feel. I wouldn't see him romantically until he breaks it off with his girlfriend because you don't want to encourage his cheating behavior. Being the other woman can't feel very good so hopefully he'll want to be with you too and and you can start an open and honest relationship together. Good luck.
