Too close for comfort

News flash: boys are icky, dateline March 16, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I have recently moved into a new apartment with a guy, we’ll call him “Brutus,” who I hardly knew. Then the first night we moved in together Brutus and I messed around. Three months have passed since then and I feel like I am pretty much “in love” with him or something quite like it. Problem is, I am quickly falling OUT of love with him due to all of the gross little bodily things that you see everyday when you live with someone. I don’t know how to cool things off with him without going through some big, torrid fiasco and someone moving out — I mean I like being his roommate…but not his girlfriend. I just want to quit messing around with him. Oh yeah, also he always tells me he loves me….uh OH!!!! How can I not hurt him??? Please Advise!!!

–Grossed Out By Bodily Function Brutus

Dear Grossed Out,

Uh…if everyone fell out of love due to “all the gross little bodily things that you see every day when you live with someone,” then there’d be, like, no married people, ever. I mean, I assume you’re talking about the gross little bodily things you see every day, like, you know, hair that could stand to be washed or a little ring around the collar — not the gross little bodily things that Mulder and Scully see every day, like, you know, eyeballs with black slime in them or that asparagus thing that comes out of people’s necks.

Point is, if¬†that’s the reason you are falling out of love with Brutus, then BG ventures to say that she’s not sure how in love you were with him in the first place. And just for the record, messing around on Night One with your new roommate is not Number One on Breakup Girl’s list of Wise Moves.

That said, what to do now? Well, it’s bad enough to have your ex in your calculus class, or your workplace, never mind your …shower. You, Grossed Out, may have to move out — especially if he’s as gaga for you as you seem to think. Spare both of you further agony.

Exception: if you live in New York City. Living with an ex — even one with eyeball slime and asparagus neck — is better than looking for an apartment in Manhattan.

  1. Hey Breakup Girl,

    You have a great web site! I stumbled upon it today while doing a search on Blogged. As someone who has recently discovered the importance of living together with someone before marriage (fortunately, we realized it wouldn’t work and never made it down the altar), I have to say your advice is spot-on.

  3. Whats up 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 skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with
    experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  4. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared
    to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people
    consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect
    , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

  8. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. 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
    put 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!

  9. Fantastic blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked
    about in this article? I’d really love to be a part of group where I
    can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    Thanks a lot!
