Dear Wendy: “My New Boyfriend Disapproves Of How I Handle My Ex”

I recently separated from a boyfriend of several years and am now dating someone new. Long story short, I separated from the ex because I always had to pay for everything. I feel stupid and angry at how long I accepted no progress with him. The separation so far has been reasonably amicable and I’m trying to keep it that way. New guy knows the situation and that I am still settling some financial items. I own the cars, for example, including a truck the ex put 1/3 of the money into. At first, I was willing to just let him have the truck, which he really wants, and I would take the other cheaper car, but the new guy doesn’t agree with me on this. Basically, he feels I’ve paid more than enough into the relationship and should at least get some money from the truck. I agreed, and so I told the ex; he balked, but agreed to pay me some more for the truck (but not its full value). He doesn’t have a job though, and the insurance is coming due; I want it transferred to him already but I’m worried he’s not going to pay me for it. New guy would not be happy if he found out ex got away with the truck, but deep down, I just want to put this all behind me. I’m worried, though, that he’ll assume if I don’t stick it to the ex like he deserves, that means I’m still okay with being walked all over. Am I being a pushover still? What do I do? — Possible Pushover

Dear Wendy: “When’s The Best Time To Dump Someone?”

I’ve been dating this guy officially for about two months now, but before that we were pretty much friends with benefits. I was completely fine with that and honestly preferred it. Now that we have the title of “boyfriend and girlfriend,” I feel like I don’t want it anymore. He’s been off in Europe for a month and coming back right after my birthday. We’ve kept in touch through e-mail and he’s told me that he bought me something. I’m truly convinced that I want to break up but I don’t know when the right time is to do it. I can’t break up with him right when he comes back, and his birthday is also a couple of days away. When or how do I do this? — Friends First
