Recycling people?

Dear Amy: I recently reconnected with a man I was engaged to, many years ago. We have not gotten together in person because we live several hours away from one another and are both in our 70s. The problem is that he blames me for a breakup that happened 50 years ago! (His perception isContinue reading “Recycling people?”

Fool me twice!

Dear Amy: After 20 years and many tears, my ex has decided to reappear. He found my daughter on social media. She was hesitant to put him in touch. This man literally ran out of our lives. This put me into a major depression. I had a total breakdown. I made contact, and he toldContinue reading “Fool me twice!”

Blah, blah, blah, blah. Therapy.

Dear Annie: I have been technically single all my life. I did have a casual long-term relationship with a man that lasted for 12 years. We were never exclusive. We would have never worked exclusively, and we both knew that. That relationship ended badly. An unplanned pregnancy resulted in a painful miscarriage that required surgery.Continue reading “Blah, blah, blah, blah. Therapy.”

… stays in Prague, apparently!

Because, he has a girlfriend. (Of course he does.) I figured I’d take things to the next level today by ditching Sonya. He balked at that and arranged for me, him, and a friend of his to go out tomorrow. I called him out on it, like, if you just want to be friends, that’sContinue reading “… stays in Prague, apparently!”

More bad advice today from Annie Lane!

Dear Annie: I’ve been very happily married for several years to a man I love deeply. Suddenly, his son from a previous marriage, who lives in another state, wants Dad to move to his state to be close to him, as he and his wife are planning a family. His son and I have neverContinue reading “More bad advice today from Annie Lane!”

Meg’s favorite alter ego!

Dear Amy: I was in an exclusive monogamous relationship with a man for eight months and, unfortunately, I kept catching him using dating apps, even after I had drawn a hard boundary about it. He also lied to me about substance abuse (he was in Alcoholics Anonymous for years but kept falling off the wagon).Continue reading “Meg’s favorite alter ego!”

There were no jacks at the fair, but…

Oh my goodness. Four years ago, I was involved with someone named Mart. I knew him online, and he’s the person who introduced me to Sonya, my best friend. My relationship with him was disastrous. We were like fire and gasoline. I wanted him desperately, but he wasn’t interested. He played head games with me,Continue reading “There were no jacks at the fair, but…”

Being dumped and being blocked.

Dear Amy: “Trying to Repent” wanted to apologize to his former girlfriend for his abusive behavior during the relationship. Your advice NOT to contact her was well-put. A woman I dated in the past reached out and apologized for the way she handled things. I was genuinely upset she messaged me and waited two weeksContinue reading “Being dumped and being blocked.”

We’re feeling trigger happy!

Do you ever find yourself tracking people from your past, keeping an eye on them online, that sort of thing? Well, I’ve been doing that with Ash, my former friend whom I haven’t heard one word from. I have a stalker facebook account, and I think she knew I was using it, because she deletedContinue reading “We’re feeling trigger happy!”

The ghosts of friends past.

Dear Amy: I really identified with the letter from “Ghosted by a Friend,” in fact, I thought that letter could be about me, because I’m the one who does this to others. I can cut people out of my life, (work or personal), in a heartbeat. It’s a learned behavior from my parents. My siblingContinue reading “The ghosts of friends past.”
