"Dear Lou,

My boyfriend and I have been together for five years, and we have a great relationship, but, of course, over that time things have cooled off a little. Not that we’re not happy, we are, it’s just that the initial lust and infatuation phase has been done with for a while. Anyway, the other factor in my problem is that we have talked from time to time about getting engaged, but we’re both only 26 and very involved with our careers right now, so it’s not like we don’t want to get married, we’re just in no hurry. So anyway, I have a really good friend who I love dearly, and who is finally with a nice guy after a string of lousy relationships. My boyfriend and I have put her back together more times than I can count after some asshole has completely screwed her over. Anyway, she’s with a great guy now, and after six months together they’ve gotten engaged. Now, that’s a little hasty in my opinion, but I don’t say anything, and I’m honestly happy for her. HOWEVER, lately I’ve been getting a lot of unsolicited advice from her about MY relationship with my boyfriend. She explained to me ways I could rekindle things between us, as well as bugging me about when we’re going to get married. She actually said to me the other day that I might want to “re-evaluate my situation” if it wasn’t going to go anywhere! I was like, you’ve got some nerve, giving me advice after all the times you’ve gotten yourself into one disaster after another! I haven’t said anything but I’m about to and I’m afraid it’ll be something I’ll regret. Help!
