Dear Panel,

I am a 21 year old guy who is going to college in Florida.

Tanya is a 17 year old high school girl who has her senior year to finish yet. She is not sure yet of what she plans to do after high school.

Rick is one of Tanya's classmates whom I have never seen. The only other thing I know about him is that he's got a sports car and acts like a dork.

Me and Tanya have been seeing each other for about a year before I decided to go to college in Florida. I came to Florida because I could not find any programs that I wanted to attend up home with Tanya. I didn't want to desert her – I was only trying to better myself and I have told her that.

Before I had moved down to Florida, we had high hopes of getting engaged and finally getting married and living together forever. I told her that I didn't want her to miss out on her final high school year, so I told her I wouldn't mind if she hung out with other guys.

Recently, she's been seeing this guy named Rick. I believe she's having too much fun with him. Being with him has made her lose her love for me. She doesn't write me anymore or email me. I have to call her now, instead of her calling me to get ahold of her. I will be seeing her pretty soon for two weeks, and when I see her I want her to fall into my arms again and want me.

Thanks for reading.

How do I make her want me again and forget about the other guy?
