The Love Master (Annette Demartinos)

Dear Love Master,

I have read your column for years, but I never thought that I would be writing to you. I've tried going to meeting of "Women who love too much" but I'm still hurting, so I thought maybe you could help me. My problem is that the guy I love doesnt want to be in the same room as me, he hates me. He treats me like a dog. But it just makes me want him more. How do I get him to notice me in a posotive way? My heart feels like a marshmellow on fire. How do I get him to love me when he already hates me so much? I need to know. I just love him SO much.

Sincerely,

Roasting Marshmellow Heart

Dear Roasting Marshmallow Heart,

I know what you mean by not being able to stop thinking about him. But when you say hate, I mean come on. Hate is a strong word. And NEVER go to the "Women who love too much" group. That never fixes anything.

So you have two choices. Choice number one is to ignore him. When in doubt, ignore. The results are phenomenal: He'll be falling over himself for you, he'll act like a complete idiot, he'll be wishing that he had been nice to you, and he'll be trying to fix his mistake. The only thing that's bad is that you will REALLY want to talk to him. This is where you probably going to have a problem. Just shut your mouth, and you'll do fine.

You're second choice is to confront him. Now I don't normally encourage this but, girlie, you've got nothing else to do. The pros (which are unlikely) are that he will acknowledge you and change his ways. Cons (which are more likely) are that he will make fun of you and start making fun of you even more.

So in essence I would probably go with the first choice. This isn't looking too good but I have to wish you good luck. So, good luck (you're gonna need it). Hope things get better. :)

Sincerely,

The Love Master
