Dear Davina: 6 years after we split, I'm still in love with my EX who has moved on

Dear Davina,

I really need help. I am in still in love with my ex. We dated for 2 years then we broke up, but I still can’t move on. I love him so much.
It’s been 6 years since we broke up but I just can’t stop myself from loving him. Even though I caused the break up, I can’t get him out of my Brain. Sometimes, I take sleeping pills to be able to sleep at night, I really love him and I want him back.

Dear Davina: This guy says he wants just friendship but he tells everyone I'm his woman!

Dear Davina,

I have this male friend and we talk very well. But he is always jealous when he sees another guy talking to me. He talks outside with me so initimately that people around have started asking if we’re dating. So jokingly, I asked him one day what he wanted from me and he said he wanted just friendship and that he had heard the rumor going around.

Dear Davina: My Fiancé is Stingy! Is it advisable to Marry him like that?

Please I need really serious advice. I’m in a relationship with a guy who loves me very much. We’ve been on for years now but he wasn’t really working when we started. I stood by him and now things have gotten better and he works. The issue is I am starting to notice something strange,

I don’t know if I should call it stinginess. I probably didn’t notice since he wasn’t doing well in the past and I didn’t bother him because he didn’t have then.

Dear Davina: SHE is always threatening to break up with me, should I just end the relationship?

I have been in a relationship with my woman for a year. For the first three months, we lived peacefully and happily without any form of misunderstanding.
We started having issues after three months. Sometimes, we quarrel and raise our voices but at the end, we settle and live happy again.

Dear Davina: I'm under pressure to get married but my Boyfriend doesn't have a job

I will be 27 years old this August. The pressure to get married is on me, as the first female. Actually, I have a guy I dated for 2 and a half years; he loves me very much but he’s too jealous. He fights at the slightest mistake and he never let things go.

The worst part is that he asks for all he has given you during a quarrel. We had been living like cat and rat for many years so last year, a fight came up where he insulted me so much and he asked for the money he gave me. I got angry too and we broke up. But one thing is certain, he loves me very much. He gave me all I ever wanted but he’s too jealous and he sometimes cries, which I can’t handle.
