This hopeless romantic remains unfulfilled

By Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I have been dating a guy for almost four months.

We met right before Thanksgiving, so it was lovely to feel connected to someone through the holidays. We even rang in the new year together -- sealed with a perfect kiss.

From the beginning, we agreed to take things slow, because he was newly divorced and I was recently out of a six-year relationship. (He also is a single dad, and I have never dated anyone with a child.)

We don't want to get overwhelmed, and it has worked.

February 13th was our three-month anniversary, and the day after was obviously Valentine's Day.

I knew I wasn't going to see him because he had his child both of those nights. I thought he would do something special to celebrate both of these days.


The anniversary came ... and he said nothing.

Valentine's Day came, and he simply texted me and said "Happy Valentine's Day."

I thought, "Well, OK. Maybe he is sending flowers to my job..." but still nothing!

I'm not going to lie. It hurt.
