Tired of yore lies

The more things change on February 16, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I have reached the conclusion that current societal trends suggest that most decent relationships last on average three years. Do you agree that in opposition to the 50’s, contemporary GenX people will therefore exist in a string of three-year relationships and in a constant cycle of grieving and happiness?

— Cross-Eyed and Well-Spun

Dear Cross-Eyed,

Are you talking about current societal trends, or are you talking about your current societal life? Anyway — and either way — don’t think for a minute that people in the 50s did not exist in a constant cycle of grieving and happiness (if you remember, it was “Happy Days,” not “Happy Life“). Just because dating procedures were clearer and the institution of marriage appeared more stable, the world — and relationships — were hardly problem-free (McCarthy, Rosa Parks, hydrogen-bomb-building, women “getting pinned,” whatnot). So instead of falsely idolizing times gone by, let’s exist in a constant cycle of grieving and happiness today.

  4. Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?

  5. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Finding the time and actual
    effort to make a really good article… but what can I say… I
    hesitate a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.

  8. Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check
    out your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I enjoy the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using
    WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!

  9. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  15. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if
    it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is
    now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!

    in depth information you offer. It’s good to come across a blog every

  21. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally different
    subject but it has pretty much the same page layout
    and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

  23. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but
    I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not
    sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Appreciate it

    Comment by lace human hair — June 19, 2017 @ 6:33 pm

  24. I am curious to find out what blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m having some minor security problems with my latest blog and I would like to find something more safe.
    Do you have any solutions?

    Comment by ead.letras.ufg.br — June 22, 2017 @ 5:19 pm

  25. Hey there! This post could not be written any better! Reading through
    this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always
    kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to
    him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  26. Right now it seems like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
