Dear Sugar and My Heart is Torn Tara need your help. How can she break up with her boyfriend and tell his friend she likes him instead?
I've been with my boyfriend for three and a half years. I love him very much, but I'm afraid the relationship has descended into codependency. He's an angry, negative person with little or no life ambition. I've just recently had major surgery and whenever I call upon him to walk my dog or help me get groceries (I really don't ask him that often), it's like I'm the biggest burden in his life. To add more to the mix, I have serious feelings for his friend who's moving away in two months! It's making my head spin. Help me sort this out. I know I need to break up with him, I just don't know how. Furthermore, I feel like if I don't tell the other guy how I feel, I'll regret it for the rest of my life. Please help. I need an outsider's opinion as all of my girlfriends have lost their patience with me.
