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 “Money or Love” who had recently started dating a longtime friend and was very concerned about his financial irresponsibility and amount of credit card debt he had. “Am I out of line for telling him he needs to be smarter with his money and cut back on his purchases? Should I let that come between what we have — an otherwise great friendship, great love, open and honest communication, and commitment?” After the jump, find out if she let finances come between them or not.
As an aside, Mike started dating someone else within a few weeks, and now, about six months later, they are very serious. And I couldn’t be happier for them!
But, now I have to tell you about my douchebag neighbor that I’ve been sleeping with for the past few months – another day, another letter. 😉
Eagerly awaiting that letter!
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.
