Dear Miss Emily:

I've been with this girl 10 months and I lied to her about an ex
emailing me. And I never told her about girls textin' me. After
that, all went down hill and, now, we've broken up. She wants space.
I always say one thing, then another, and it really annoys her
and hurts her. I want her back so much. What do I do?

Dear Playing:

I think it's odd that you're not really sure what to do. I mean,
here you are, telling me that you lied to your girlfriend and
made her feel that she's someone who is not worthy of your respect.
I have to hand it to her, in that she's taken a stance and will not
put up with your careless behavior. I'm not sure if it's too late
to get her back, but if you don't really understand how good
relationships work, you'll repeat "the error of your ways." So,
suck it up, grow up, and maybe she'll see the change. Until then,
work on getting your priorities straight. It's never too late.
