i can't believe he got arrested. every single time he goes out with his friends, i have a mini-lecture on how much i really don't like him drinking - not even drinking, more just binging - and tell him to not do anything stupid. well, he didn't listen and then he was in jail for a day. all i could think was "i told you so" and now i just don't know what to think or do.

Are you me from the future?
I tell him the same thing now, but he hasn't been arrested. (Yet.)

Maybe he's just not the person that he's going to listen to on the topic. When you can't advise someone on something, sometimes the best thing to do is just accept that you can't change them and avoid letting it drain your energy. Sorry, that's a bit cynical, but it's one option, and one man's opinion.

Get it through your head he is not going to listen to you, change for you, or do what you want just because you say so, past, present, or future. So given that, is he really the one for you and is this the kind of relationship you've dreamed of for yourself? If so, this is only the beginning of the drama. Real question is, what do you want to be doing with your life?

This is what they call a "red flag" aka a "wakeup call." Can you see it or are you all wrapped around him (and if so, why)? (Hint: he won't make it easy for you.)
