Dear Ms. Meniscus, My new boyfriend's ex-girlfriend of three years will do anything to get him back -- even take our closest friends away. What can I do to stop her? - Amanda in Allegheny
Remember that three years is a substantial amount of time -- severing connections and feelings quickly from both parties may prove impossible. Expecting your boyfriend to shun this young woman is probably not reasonable.
Regardless, it sounds like you've got quite the trouble-maker on your hands. If you haven't already, share your concerns with your boyfriend. Some relationships can easily deflect external manipulations -- others cannot.
Communication between the two of you is crucial.
