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 “Never Been Kissed,” a 21-year-old student who had “never had a boyfriend, never been on a date, never spent more than five minutes alone with a guy, never received flowers, never [been asked out],” let alone kissed. She wrote: “Of course, it doesn’t help that two of my best friends are engaged and in love and another friend beats the guys off with a stick and always has them calling her and asking her out. I take every opportunity to go out and meet people, but no one approaches me or expresses interest. I feel like I’m a catch and would be a great girlfriend, so why can’t guys see that too?” After the jump, find out what’s happened in her life in the last 11 months and how she got from where she was to where she is now.
Thank you guys for all the advice!
Congrats! This just shows that a little patience, focusing on living your life, and giving someone an honest chance before rejecting him can all pay off!
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.
