This month our focus is slightly different, because we tackle a relationship of a younger girl instead of a woman. *Monica's relationship will remind us all how important it is for girls to feel loved and needed at home, because some boys find it difficult to work out the complex workings in the mind of a girl - especially one who wants a secure and committed relationship from him. You can access last month's relationship forum article here.

*Monica's story of young love
We started our relationship when were both just kids and have grown up together. He’s involved in every part of my life. Every ‘first’ I did was with him, including first exam, first school skip, first party - everything. We even have the same friends.
She had enough of unrequited love
I lost all hope when he blew me off on a date that he promised we’d go on – he overslept and didn’t seem to care when I got angry about it. I couldn’t stand it anymore and suggested a break up. He asked why, and when I said I just wanted more love and attention, all he said was, ‘Oh, Okay then. Bye’.
Whenever I try to talk about it he doesn’t reply. If I go to his house to speak to him, he’d just close his eyes and pretend to sleep.
