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 now. Today, we hear from “Intern Love,” whose letter appeared in a shortcuts column last fall. She asked why this guy whom she dated for a few weeks while he was in her town for an internship had suddenly seemed to lose interest once he returned home. She updated us once before saying she had taken my advice and moved on already. And now she has a new update she wants to share:
As I wrote in my first update, I started seeing a new guy a few months after the intern disappeared. We met on eHarmony and I was over the intern (way over him now). Well, the guy I met on eHarmony just proposed to me on a mountain top in North Carolina! It was so sweet and wonderful. We made a long romantic weekend out of it in Asheville, NC and had a wonderful time.
This man I met is incredible — just a great guy I am so lucky to have. We are planning a wedding for summer 2013. I just want to tell all the girls out there looking for their soulmate, no matter how old you are, keep looking and keep yourself open to meeting him. If you are dating someone who gives you a lot of heartache, move on already, because “the one,” won’t do that to you. The relationship with your soulmate won’t be perfect, and you might have a little argument here and there because no one is perfect, but the relationship will flow and grow nicely, relatively smoothly without a lot crying and a lot of doubts.
I met my soulmate on eHarmony at 32, I was getting to the point where I wasn’t sure I would ever meet anyone, and I was feeling horrible from that dumb intern. But I kept myself open and found Rob, and now we’re going to get married.
Congratulations!! And thanks for a happy update to kick-off Thanksgiving.
