Lost in love? Your relationship too weird for Ann Landers to understand? Trying to discover what comes next in your life or your music? Bring your problems to Ask Magic, your chance to ask Arizona's reigning slow-jam king for advice on whatever life throws at you. (Click here to ask MC Magic a question of your own.)Dear Magic,

I've got a son, and my baby daddy is there for us, but we're not together. I'm the one that cut the rope, cuz he cheated, but that was months ago. Now I feel like I'm willing to put the past in the past and move forward. Should I try to get back with him?

I don't know how he feels about me any more, but I still have feelings for him!

Thanks,
Over It in Oklahoma

Dear Over It in Oklahoma,

We should start with a question for you: What exactly is your reason for wanting to reconcile with your baby daddy in the first place?

Dear Magic,

First of all, thanks for following me on Twitter, it means a lot. Okay: What should I do if I like one of my exes, even though we've been on and off a lot, and he's always talking to lots of other girls and lying?

We break up and then he always ends up texting me and telling me how much he loves me, and how I'm his first love, and how he misses me. What should I do? After he tells me all these things he always ends up talking and flirting with other girls. Help me, Magic!

Dear Over and Over,

There's a saying that goes, "People will only get away with what you allow them to." That's exactly what came to mind when I read your question.

Dear Magic,

I've been with my boyfriend for a year, and lately we've been having a lot of problems. He lies to me and goes behind my back talking to other girls. I've told him how I feel about it and he doesn't do anything about it.

What should I do?

Dear Ignored,

Your story reminds me of one of my favorite quotes, "You don't know what you have until it's gone."

Ask Magic: How Can I Find the Time to Work and Make Music?

Lost in love? Stuck in a relationship quagmire Ann Landers wouldn't understand? Trying to figure out what comes next in life? We'd like to invite you personally to bring your problems to Ask Magic, your chance to ask Arizona's reigning slow-jam king for advice on whatever life throws at you. Click here to ask MC Magic a question of your own.

I am a young woman starting her sophomore year of college in the fall, and I just ended a two-year-plus relationship with a guy who is in the Navy. He's being stationed in Japan, and I was feeling trapped by the thought of tying myself down to someone who isn't around, in addition to that, I'm young and he is all I've known.

Long story short, I ended it because I want to take this time to "find myself." But after two years of being in a serious relationship, I don't know who "I" am, nor do I know where to start on finding that person. As someone who has made a career out of doing what you love, where do you recommend I begin? I'm in school and I have loads of opportunities in front of me, but I'm scared of going at things alone. -- Suddenly Single in AZ

Dear Suddenly Single,

You are in a GREAT position to begin the rest of your life.

Ask MC Magic: Should I Tell My Man I Cheated on Him?

Anyone who follows Arizona's reigning slow-jam king on Twitter or Facebook knows that he's into keeping in touch with his fans. With that in mind -- and because Ann Landers just doesn't know you as well as he does -- we'd like to invite you personally to bring your problems to Ask Magic, MC Magic's new weekly advice column. Love, relationships, hip-hop . . . if you have a question, whether it's serious or a little strange or somewhere in between, MC Magic is here to answer it. If you'd like to ask him a question of your own, click here.

What's up, MC Magic? I love you and your music! I've been with my man for seven years, through ups and downs and thick and thin. During our five years together I made a "friend" at work. He was cool -- someone I could talk to -- and he always seemed to make me laugh and put a smile on my face. While my man was out of town on business, my "friend" kept me company.

After maybe a year of being "friends," I kinda had this guilt ghost haunting me. Before this, me and my man never questioned each other about who we were with or anything like that, but now I've become crazy thinking he's out cheating on me, or I get to daydreaming about those days of my "friend" putting down so that I can't even get in the mood with my man anymore.
