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 “Feeling like a Whore,” who only got affection from her boyfriend in bed, making her feel like a, well, you know. After the jump, find out whether he’s finally showing his love outside the bedroom or if our fair LW got wise and MOA’d.
I know I wrote to you a few months ago about breaking up with my boyfriend and with the advice I knew it was the right thing to do but sometimes the heart says different so we got back together and it was the BEST thing ever because I finally realized what a douche he is. So we had not seen each other in a few months it was like he was avoiding me and I kept making excuses to all my friends and during this time he went everywhere except here because he was too busy. I finally told him I was not happy and he emailed me telling me I was a selfish ass who did not understand that he has other things going on and I should be more understanding, even though I have not seen him in a few months and with no verbal or physical affection I should be okay with that? What am I — a door mat? It was like a weight lifted off of me and it is the best feeling to truly know that I am okay and really deserve better. He is the ass and missed out on the best relationship ever!
Well, good for you for moving on from a situation that made you unhappy.
If you’re someone I’ve given advice to in the past, I’d love to hear from you, too. Email me at email@example.com with a link to the original post, and let me know whether you followed the advice and how you’re doing now.
