My boyfriend is a people pleaser and it annoys me.


Dear MizzB

My boyfriend is a people pleaser and it annoys me. He is always doing things that will make his friends happy and doesn’t care about his own dreams and plans.

Every time I try to talk to him he implies I’m jealous of his fame. Would I be wrong to dump him?

Dear Sistas

At times a low self-esteem and lack of confidence can lead people to lose themselves. It sounds as though your boyfriend doesn’t know what he wants in life.

He’s an adult and has the right to make decisions about his life all by himself. When you’ve done your best to show him the light without any success, then must accept that you need to back off and let him learn the hard way.

Leaving a relationship out of your free will is not a problem and should not be seen as bad. Do what is best for you at all times.
