Dr. Date, I recently broke up with my girlfriend of about eight months, but she still seems to pop up wherever I’m at. I realized shortly after we started seeing each other that she didn’t have that many friends, so she kind of became a constant part of my life pretty quickly. That was a real blessing at first because we were in love with each other, and she had the time and interest in exploring all the different parts of my life. So we got to spend a whole lot of time with each other.
My girlfriend and I work at a local fast food restaurant. That’s how we met, actually. She’s the manager; I’m the assistant manager. … Or at least I was.
Last week, she caught me lifting a couple of twenties from the register and fired me right then and there. I understand why she had to take action, and I’m not angry with her in the least. We’re still together but probably not for long.
If she stays with me, it would put her entire career in restaurant management in jeopardy. See, she’s forgiven me, but
