Did His Crazy Ex-Girl Ruin Our Dating Bliss?

Ask Demetria: If a new boo's alleged old flame gets pissy with you, maybe she's not that old.

I know you liked him, so accepting that might hurt. Don't make the mistake of many women by allowing his careless treatment of your feelings to define how you think of yourself. Also, don't let his behavior define your ideas of men in general. Some are pretty great. Others aren't so much. Try to judge each one on his own merits -- or, in this case, the lack thereof.

Good luck!
