Dear Roe,

I’m 27 years of age. I was seeing this guy for about two weeks about three months ago. He told my sister he wanted to marry me – he was so obsessive in the beginning. He wanted to see me all the time and he was counting the days until the next time we were meeting again. We had sex just a few days after knowing each other. I gave him a chance but after those two weeks, we had a minor misunderstanding which led us to “breaking up”, but we were still acting like we were together.
