Dr. Wallace: Michael and I have been dating for more six months, and they were the greatest six months of my life. He was a true gentleman and treated me with respect and dignity.

All that came crashing down the other night. After a movie, we parked in our favorite dark spot. Usually when we go there, we talk, listen to music and hug and kiss, nothing more. But this time, as soon as we parked, he was all over me like an octopus. After a ton of time went by, I finally fought him off and convinced him to take me home.

The next night, we went to a basketball game. We left before the game was over, and on the way home he stopped at our dark spot, and once again he was like a crazed wild animal.

I don’t know if I should go out with Michael again. I want to if he is going to be civilized, but not if he is animalistic. Please hurry with your advice!

Nameless, Anaheim, Calif.

Nameless: Michael has grossly overstepped the rules of dating, not once, but twice, and that’s two times too many. Things have gone too far at this point to let him off with an apology and a meaningless promise to “try” to behave himself. Believe me, he won’t. He’ll head for the dark spot every time, and the date will end with a wrestling match. I’d say it’s time to give a big, permanent no to all this nonsense and stop going out with him.
