In a feature I call “Your Turn,” in which you, the readers, get to answer the question, I’m presenting the following letter without commentary from me:
To be honest, he and I have been in an off-and-on relationship. This was not the first time we ever broke up. I asked him why he slept with a prostitute if supposedly he loves me. He said: “You broke up with me, so why do you care?” And then he said he did it because he was mad, and he regrets everything and hopes I can forgive him one day.
I want to get back with him. I still love him deep down, but I’m scared of being lied to. He made so many promises that he never even meant. And I just hate the fact that we had sex the day after he slept with a hooker and, even if he used protection, condoms are not 100 percent safe.
He says he will do anything for me to take him back — even go to church or even go to anger management since he has issues. What should I do? — Off and On and Off Again
