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 “Visa to Disaster” who felt responsible for her best friend being exploited for a marriage visa after she introduced her to a foreign friend visiting from abroad. “I feel responsible for putting her in this crappy situation, knowing she doesn’t have the self-love to recognize that she deserves a man who will marry her, no strings attached,” she wrote. Keep reading to see whether the friend went through with the marriage and how everyone is doing now.
I guess all’s well that ends well, right? I hope you don’t still blame yourself for what happened, and I hope your friend has learned to love herself first and will be more judicious in future relationships. Thanks so much for the update.
If you’re someone I’ve given advice to in the past, I’d love to hear from you, too. Email me at email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
