A moving response on March 2, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I dated this guy for six months. I’m 40, he’s 25. We were getting along so great — then as soon as I let down my walls, told him I had feelings for him, he broke up with me. He’s moving away and doesn’t want to have anything to do with me anymore. What’s the deal? Plus, I hate being broken up with by e-mail … what a coward. .


Dear Deena,

You guys have heard what I always say about the C-word. You know, Canada. Where people tend to flee to when they feel like they’re about to have to make a commitment (for Canadians, it’s Cleveland). Which is most likely what happened with your young buck. And in this case I think it was more a function of age (sowage of wild oats surplus, yada yada yada) than of gender.

So since he’s gone — which is just as well — let me take a moment to elaborate on your second point. Guys: breaking up with someone via email is tacky. It is permitted ONLY if
(1) your relationship has been purely cyber from the get-go, or if
(2) you’re breaking up with AOL.

E-breakups are indeed cowardly, as they allow you to drop the bomb without facing the collateral damage, and they are stupid, as they allow your dumpee to forward your lame e-breakup to friends and associates all over the world.

E-dumpers, here is my curse: may your dearjohn@buh-bye.com come back to haunt you — in the form of “FWD: CHECK OUT THIS DORKWEED!”

  8. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

  22. First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if
    you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Cheers!

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to
    no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

  46. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.

    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?

    Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.

    Comment by best broadband provider in my area — May 25, 2017 @ 7:04 am

  47. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something
    that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy that I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.
