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 “Not Fond of Many People,” a mentally-challenged person who had a family member trying to stand in the way of her starting a relationship. “I don’t want him in trouble for dating me, and the family member threatened to get him locked up. I don’t want that — he means too much to me. Is there anything I can do?” Update below:
I’m glad to hear you’re happy! Thanks for the update and best wishes to you.
And now we hear from “No Invite for the Ex,” the woman whose boyfriend was in random contact with the much older woman he had a sexual relationship with when he was 16 and she was 45. “Unlike Fred’s other exes, whom he’s also friendly with, Sylvia will like almost all of his social media posts, will comment, and will message him. He also likes photos of her and comments on her posts. I let him know that I thought the relationship was kind of inappropriate considering that she’s married and that I felt disrespected. Am I threatend by this woman?” Here’s her update:
Congratulations and best wishes!
