Here is today's OPP:


Yi Slacker & Steve,

I'm 29 and I have my life together. I own a house and a car, have a good career and a social life. 5 years ago I met a guy that was spontaneous and adventurous and I instantly fell for him. He knows my deepest secrets and has seen me through some really dark times in my life. Things were great for a long time and then everything changed. He became very demeaning and started to make me feel bad about myself all the time. He ended up taking a job out of state and we ended things and I knew it was for the better. He was gone for 3 years and we barely talked at all in that time. A few months ago he messaged me and said he was coming back. I had dated a few other men while he was gone and I told myself I wasn’t going to let him back into my life. But then as soon as he got back, we were hanging out again and he was up to the same old tricks. I know it’s not healthy, but I can’t stay away from him. I feel like a moth attracted to a flame. I’m smarter than this but I’m also very attracted to him and find myself wanting to be with him. I don’t know why I can’t stop, but I can’t. Why do I do this to myself? Why can’t I just cut him out of my life? Has anyone else been in a situation like this? Any advice would be great.



Why is she having such a hard time cutting him out of her life? How does she get rid of him?
