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 “They Were On a Break” whose letter we read on Friday. She was upset that her boyfriend of six months was going on a pre-planned two-week vacation with his ex. She wrote: “I told him I was done and that I felt that the whole situation was too much for me. He has since written me a letter expressing he is in love with me — yet still planning on heading on the trip. I am feeling a bit out of sorts here, not sure if I am blowing up something potentially amazing due to timing.”
Keep reading to see if she had second thoughts about the breakup.
I know this isn’t meant to be funny and that your feelings are hurt, and I’m sorry about that, but it’s kind of ridiculous that a “wave” on social media is what finally released the truth. I’m glad you re free of this dirtbag, and I hope you don’t blame yourself or waste too much time feeling upset about it. Onward!
If you’re someone I’ve given advice to in the past, I’d love to hear from you, too. Email me at [email protected] with a link to the original post, and let me know whether you followed the advice and how you’re doing now.
