Giving the boot

Dear Carolyn,

My boyfriend is a long haul trucker and we’ve been dating for about six years. I’m a little bit worried though because for the last few months he’s stopped calling me. I realize he’s on the road all the time but surely he has time to return a phone call or text message? He’s been such a good boyfriend and we have so much fun when we are together that I hate to break up with him. What do you think? Should I give him the boot?


Dear Patti,
I’ll say this as gently as I can. There’s no need for you to dump him. He has already dumped you.
Yes dear. When the boy stops calling and months go by, he has moved on. I suggest you do the same.
I’m just say’n,
