Can He Make Her Love Him?
Q: What can I do to make my girlfriend love me back? I get the feeling she's lost her love for me, and I think she's seeing someone else now. — Chip, 19
Dr. Susan: If only there were a handy little Cupid doll that we could use to get someone to love us! Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. If your girlfriend has already started dating someone else, your relationship may have run its natural course. Sadly, that happens all the time, at any age, but especially when you're young. This is the time to experiment by dating people with different personalities to determine what's really going to work out for you in the long run. One thing you might consider doing is asking her to be honest with you. That way, if she admits she doesn't feel the way she used to and has begun looking around, at least you won't be sitting around wondering. If she won't admit it, you can still learn something by her reaction to your question. Love is a feeling, and it's also a commitment to stay true to one person. Perhaps she's just not ready to make that commitment.
