It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “College Sweetheart,” a college student who was feeling the pressure to define her 6-month relationship in an effort to avoid a broken heart come May when her boyfriend graduates. “I don’t want to feel crushed if come May it turns out I thought we were more serious than he thought we were, but talking about feelings/emotions is not my strong suit so I’m not sure how to start this conversation, especially when I am not totally positive of how I feel.” After the jump, find out where things stand in her relationship now.
Thanks for the update! Sounds like you’re on a great track. And remember: the only people who truly know what goes on in a relationship are the people in it. Don’t let your friends convince you they know more about what’s going on between you and your boyfriend than you do! If you’re happy, that’s all that matters.
If you’re someone I’ve given advice to in the past, I’d love to hear from you, too. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the original post, and let me know whether you followed the advice and how you’re doing now.
