Minerva's Breakdown 

Advice for those on the verge


Dear Minerva,

I have been dating a wonderful man for one year now. He loves me and often tells me so. I return the verbal sentiment, although I know I am not being genuine when I say it back. This man has done so much for me. I just do not see myself being with him. He is gentle and fragile. I am terrified of breaking his heart because I know how much he loves me. It literally makes me sick to my stomach. Hoping for some friendly advice.

Foot in Her Mouth

Dear Foot,

Here's some friendly advice: STOP LYING TO HIM. While he has being doing so much for you and falling in love with you, you have been taking his help and leading him on. I am sure there are a hundred ways this might have happened but instead of being honest about it, you have said, "I love you"—three little words that have caused so many things in the world to go right and so many things to go horribly wrong. You need to break it off if you can't see any future with him. Yes, it is going to hurt him, but he deserves better than deception and false affection. Do it as soon as you can before it blows up into a "Lifetime Movie" scenario.
