April: Captain Heartbreak
April 2009
Q. Iím the captain of a league team, and I was dating a teammate. She broke up with me a few months ago, and is now dating another guy on the team. Whatís worse is, theyíre pretty affectionate around the poolroom. Itís bumming me out, but I canít quit because itís my team. What do I do?

A. Thatís really a shame, because you would think they would be more thoughtful than that. Perhaps, if they are nice people, they are really unaware that you still have some feelings for her and that they donít realize itís hurtful to have to watch them. Is she aware that you still have feelings for her, or does she think you are really OK with her and her new beau? Perhaps they assume you are over her, and it really doesnít bother you. They might feel bad once you explain that while you accept their situation, itís hard for you to watch. So if they donít mind, could they pay a bit more attention not to be so affectionate around you?†They may be happy to do so. If they know it bothers you and they donít care, then you should ask them to leave your team, explaining that, although they are entitle to a relationship, you just canít get used to it.†If they wonít leave, then you have to make a decision on whether or not you can get used to it or get out. Sorry, but itís really the only option.
