    Ice Cold

    Dear Teachers,

    A. Take a step back and look at your boyfriend’s behavior. He shut off, turned ice cold and relies on his sponsor to tell him who he can talk to.
    - What does “turn ice cold” mean?

    B. Girl! You chose this critical man. Regardess of his good qualities, he puts you down and you have continued to date him.
    - What does “he puts you down” mean in this situation?

    Thanks a million

    Namsteven
