MEAN GIRL | My girlfriend is always shouting at me and won’t tell me why.
DEAR DEIDRE: MY girlfriend shouts at me but won’t say why.
We’re both 18 and have been together for two years.
Lately she’s changed towards me.
She never calls me and if I call her, she doesn’t seem happy to hear from me.
Sometimes, she gets really irritable and mean.
I’ve messaged her asking if she still wants to be with me but she hasn’t replied.
Perhaps her feelings have changed, which can happen over time.
But she might be having a difficult time or have a problem she finds hard to talk about.
Tell her how you feel, say you are there for her and ask her to be honest.
