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 “Friendly Ex” who invited the girlfriend of her ex-husband/ father of her 12-year-old daughter to go shopping for a dress for her daughter’s school dance. The girlfriend was offended by the invite and the LW wondered if she overstepped her boundaries. Keep reading for an update.
At that point I realized that she was just a nutcase and stopped trying to be nice.
The happy news is that she and the ex finally broke up a few weeks ago. He told me after the breakup that she had a drinking problem with a Jekyll/Hyde personality and most of the time he ignored her craziness just to keep the peace. I’m so happy that my daughter doesn’t have to be around that anymore!
Congrats on the pregnancy and clearing your life of the crazy girlfriend! Here’s hoping your ex practices better judgment in the future.
