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 “Moving Away from a Friend” who wasn’t crazy about her best friend’s boyfriend and wondered whether she could get away without having to hang out with him before she moved 1000 miles away in four months. Keep reading to see how she reacted to your advice.
After I sent the letter, we actually went out with a group of friends and had a great time. Brian and I may never be BFFs, but I can respect a man who knows how to play Centipede.
To clear up some confusion, I didn’t distance myself from Leah for having a one-night-stand. A couple years ago Leah got drunk and went home with some guy. The night ended with her locked in a bathroom calling her brothers for help. She never told me anymore details than this, but I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that she put herself in a similarly dangerous position. Still, I need to respect her decisions.
I still have my fingers crossed for my dream job. Right now I work for a small clinic while I finish my M.A. in Audiology. I’m really looking forward to a possible move. I don’t know if we’ll survive a LDF, but I’m grateful for the good times we’ve shared.
Also, if you’ve never tried quiche, you really should. They’re super simple to make and really filling. — Moving Away from a Friend
I love quiche, and just made two kinds last weekend! Thanks for the update and best of luck to you!
