Dear Dr. Sabrina:

I really need your help as I feel as if I have created a situation that can only say is bad. Ok, I am self-employed man with several successful business endeavors. I have never been married and have no children. I was raised in a gated community in the suburbs. I travel often and have several well-off friends. Now, I have been in love with a woman for many years. She is simply my heart. We have developed a very strong connection; however, it seems as I am constantly seeking to do things for her. Over the years she has done several things that have disrespected me, and I forgive and try to show how much I love her.

I have started a business specifically to give her a platform. The business is excelling, and it is not due to her efforts. I am working the business and not getting the support from her. There have been several things over the year that she has done that does NOT represent the corporate nature of the company. I had intended to give her stock/ownership in the company, now I am feeling like her behavior is not only hurting our relationship…..it is detrimental to the company. I feel so disrespected both as a man who loves her and as the owner of this company.

I have decided to stop our personal relationship and start to see other women. My question regarding how I handle the business relationship. I feel she can be a real asset and the company can benefit from her and provide an opportunity for her to grow in some areas as well. I do not want to be an Ass. Should I attempt to maintain a professional relationship with her?
