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.

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. Dear Breakup Girl,
    There is this guy and we like each other. However, we have mutual friend that I have been friends with for a long time and she has totally fallen for him. This friend and I have had issues in the past where she has thought that I was trying to get the guys that she was committed to. Currently, our friendship is kind of rocky and i don’t want to offend her in any way. I want to know if I should talk to her now about my relationship with this guy or should I wait until she slowly get over him?
