“Saving Love Lives The World Over!” e-mail e-mail to a friend in need

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!”

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  4. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit
    the nail on the head. The issue is something
    that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.

    make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.

    It’s lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent
    content material as you did, the internet will likely be a lot more helpful than ever

    issues. To the next! Cheers!!

    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
