Ask Sujeiry: He Has A Local Girl (Long Distance Love)

TrappedDear Sujeiry,

I’m seeing this guy from Florida and I live in Arkansas and I recently found out he has a local girl. My friends think he’s interested in a long distance relationship with me to satisfy his emotional needs but uses Local Girl for his carnal needs.  So I try and let go. Tell him, “Fine. Let’s be friends.” I try and move on and then he tells me he’s thinking about getting rid of her. It sounds cliche even as I write this. I like him. He likes me. We have a weird connection, like I can tell when he’s upset, can’t sleep, or is messing around. Seriously, it scares him and just hurts me.  Still I can’t let go. I mean, the ratio of men and women here in AK is seven to one. Not sure why I need a redneck from Florida. But that’s who I want. Should I get on with my life?


The Long Distance Girl

Dear The Long Distance Girl,

I only have two words for you: LET GO! He isn’t close by. He has admitted to having a side chick (Local Girl) who he is sexing while you’re in Arkansas. And, who knows how many more!

This relationship is futile. Honestly, what are you getting from this man? He uses you for emotional support but doesn’t respect you or your emotions. He isn’t committed to you. There is no future here. You’ve admitted yourself that he is a “redneck” from Florida who hurts you. Okay. You have a connection. But, just like we have a connection to cake and sugar, that doesn’t mean it’s a healthy one!

Should you get on with your life? You already know the answer, but if you need to hear it from me, then here it is. GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE! En español, PA’ LANTE MIJA! Reel in one of the many available men from Arkansas and stop wasting your time.

Oh, and find me an Arkansas stud too!
