I have a good education and a good job and I’m good-looking and I keep fit, but I still feel like I have to compete with my girlfriend’s ex-husband who is really handsome and has a great career and high income.
I know there were reasons she divorced him and they don’t have anything to do with each other anymore, but I’m still jealous of him.
Queenie, why is this and how do I get over it?—The new guy in her life
Dear New guy,
Keep reminding yourself that there must have been good reasons for their breakup, and she was the one who got the divorce and then got together with you.
Also remember that looks (and good health) can fade, but a good personality is what really matters.
