Letter to My Man-Friend





Hi Sweetie,

I’m sad to say that things aren’t all peaches and cream. Instead they seem to be a lil …ummm, sweet and sour. To be honest, I just don’t feel like a priority. It almost seems like I’m an afterthought. Lately, your schedule has been quite busy with man time activities (i.e. hanging out with your boyz). Now don’t get me wrong, I would never want to discourage male-bonding time but dag can a sister get a little quality time. I mean every time I try to do something with you, you’re like “Sorry, I had told Craig and ‘em that I would chill with dem. Sorry, see ya when I see ya.” I do hope that this is just a bump and not a pot-hole on our journey. I really am confident that you will become better at balancing Craig and ‘em , and me. Have a wonderful day and I guess I’ll see ya when I see ya.

Until Later…
me

Awwww...the woes of new love. I hope your man-friend reads this letter and starts working on his balancing act. I think he'll do better at balancing when he acknowledges that the "boyz" are good and all, but they will not satisfy the place of a life partner.

how sweet! Relationships are emotional roller coasters. I remember having a similar issue, it is good that you are talking about this before it becomes a major issue. Eventually, he will realize what is most important and that is what he will want to invest his time in.
In the mean time, continue to focus on yourself and your hobbies. You are valuable and there are others who would treasure even a minute of your time.

many a man has fallen victim to the "hang out w/ the fellas or my girl (again)" dilemma... let's hope that your dude gets it right more than he gets it wrong and i wish you guys all the best on a long, lasting relationship

Here's the question: Have you said this to him directly?

"Hey, I'd love to see you!"

Just positive and sincere... You deserve someone who craves to be with you.

I am thinking it is just a bump. He probably was getting a good ribbing from the boyz for spending time with you and just needed to let them know he was still down. You know how guys are! Thanks for your kind comments on my latest post.
