Tired of yore lies

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 7:56 am

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.

  2. Can I simply just say what a comfort to find a person that
    really understands what they are discussing on the net.
    You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people must read this and understand this side
    of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

    of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems
    and I find it very troublesome to inform the truth on the
    other hand I’ll certainly come back again.

  12. Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with
    experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Besides that, wonderful blog!

  18. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  19. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  20. Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own website
    soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting
    with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks!
