Classic LetterAn all-nighter from January 12, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I had been going out with a recently divorced lady with three kids under the age of 12. Long story short, kids love me, she said she did, but never really gave me the attention, and recently told me adios. I am broken totally. I had hoped for the future. I’m 43, work 2 AM – 9:30 AM Monday-Friday. My prospects are nil. I feel totally lost. I just don’t know how to get going again. I am not a bar guy, and am not real aggressive in “hitting on” women. I like myself, think I’m a great catch. I like having a partner; ’tis what helps make life more fun. Give me a road map, if you can. Just some advice that I can really use.

— Peter
Dear Peter,

Okay, here’s some. Start a social group in your community called “People with Weird Schedules and The People Who Love Them.” Breakup Girl is quite serious. There have to be people out there in the same predicament who are dying to attend an event like an “‘E.R.’ Pancake Breakfast.” Advertise in the paper, at the grocery store, on the Web. And keep at it: I just read something about a social group for tall people in NYC whose first meeting had about six people — now they have to rent convention halls. Good luck!

  1. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems
    with your blog. It appears like some of the written text within your
    posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this
    is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my
    web browser because I’ve had this happen before.

  2. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the
    simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while
    people consider worries that they plainly do not know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , people
    can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
