My boyfriend broke up with me a year ago without any reason. We were in a relationship for only six months. I love this man and can't get over him. We are now good friends and he still buys me gifts as if we're still in a relationship. He has a girlfriend but asks me to help his son with his homework. He helps my son, too. Is there a chance of us getting back together? We had a good relationship but he hurt me badly when he broke it off.

Sis Dolly answers:

He is stringing you along. I don't think there's any chance of you getting back together. He doesn't need to choose one way or the other because he knows you're still in love with him. He keeps you close by giving you attention or buying you gifts. Cut him loose and start your life afresh. If you were to ask him how his girlfriend would feel if you called her and told her about his gifts, what would he say? I think you'll find him too quick to you what a bad idea that would be. He's keeping you as his spare in case things don't work out with his girlfriend. You deserve better.
