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 “Tired of the Sexts” who wanted tips for breaking her habit of sexting guys too quickly. Keep reading to see whether she took our advice.
The best thing about this experience was the reflecting it let me to do. I realize that I am at fault for sexting too soon, and I’ve been avoiding that lately. It helps that I’m not really talking to any new guys and I’ve stopped talking to some entirely. Some people questioned whether I really wanted a relationship, and I have to say it made me think about it, and, while I do want a relationship, I’m also OK with keeping things casual until I meet someone right. No need to live like a nun waiting around for Mr. Right! I’ll probably update again when I find myself in a relationship – and I’ll let you all know whether or not I sexted him too soon!
P.S. I typically include 2 spaces in between sentences; that’s how my mom taught me to type (on an old word processor/electric typewriter), but after reading the forum post Addie Pray started about 1 space vs. 2, I have been getting rid of that extra space. After I wrote my email to you, I had to go through and delete all the extra spaces! Thanks AP for making me anal about it!
Thank you for your update and thanks for only using one space after your punctuation!
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.
If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at email@example.com.
