Tiffany Burnhill was mixed up with a bad seed, a former college basketball player whose claim to fame was that he was featured on "America's Most Wanted.

Question: I was sent home early from a work trip with the flu. I got home around 1 a.m. and texted my boyfriend to let him know. I didn't hear back from him till around noon the next day, when I chatted with him online. He asked if I needed anything, and I said I'd really love sherbet and tissues, but I can manage without. Later, I find out that he's not going to come see me because I don't "need" anything. I realize he's not my mom, but we've been dating two years and all I want is to feel like someone cares enough to take care of me. In his defense, he said he had a meeting that evening, but it turns out he got the day wrong and there was no meeting.

Q: I'm a senior in college and dating a guy who admits to having fooled around sexually with his guy friends. Nothing serious from what I can tell, but when he was in high school, he participated in some sort of circle ritual. I won't share with you what he did, but I will say it was weird. He also made out with his roommate once or twice. That was a long time ago. He says he's in love with me, and I love him back. My friends say I'm unrealistic to think there could be a future with him. But doesn't true love conquer all?

Valentine's Day is upon us, and if you're single, you know what that means. Depression, shame, and chocolate cake. I'm not saying you should feel that way. I'm just saying you might, if you're single, divorced, a widower, or a widow. And if you do, I have a few words on the subject. But before I begin, I have to admit that I've had more than a few Valentine's Days by myself, so much so that I've even written about it several times already. Top that for pathetic. You can't.
