Broken Heart Bob

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 10:10 am

Classic LetterToday we present the original “loft-builder” letter from January 19, 1998, which inspired Paul The Intern’s origin as well as this classic animation!

Dear Breakup Girl,

The thing I fear most in life is “I just want to be friends.” Or “I don’t want to ruin our friendship with a relationship now.”

I have been trying to get to know these women in college. I did all the things a “nice guy” does. I helped move big stuff into their dorm rooms, set up computers and bed lofts, what have you. That’s how I am: When I like a woman, I try to help her out. Well…then I get to be her best friend. I’ve tried not to be a “nice guy,” but I just can’t. It’s instilled deep within me. So what can I do to not be the best-friend/older brother/father/confidant and be someone’s boyfriend?

— Broken Heart Bob


Dear B.H. Bob,

Of course you can’t not be a nice guy. You are a nice guy, whether you like it or not. And trust me, women do like it — I mean, even LIKE like it.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: when women say “he’s NICE, but…” they are not speaking some weird cryptic secret Woman Language. In most cases, it’s just a lame generic catch-all phrase for that no-chemistry feeling that’s otherwise impossible to describe. (Come on, surely you know some girl whom you think is perfectly, yes, NICE, but who just doesn’t happen to do that voodoo to you. That’s all it is.) That, or there’s some Oprah self-esteem issue going on where they think they “don’t deserve someone so NICE.” In which case, it’s really her problem, not yours.

But listen: the thing for you to do is to be a nice guy, not a Nice Guy. Be nice because you are, not because you’re trying to. It’s your character, not a campaign. If Miss Thing needs help plugging in her PC, then MacGyver will be glad to help her — if he’s free. If Miss Thing’s roommate is feeling weepy, then Uncle Bob’s shoulder is available — usually.

And reconsider your approach — you’ve got a role in setting the tone, you know. The next time a girl piques your interest, ask her out on a date before you fix her loft.

Love,
Breakup Girl

  2. Casino Online And Brick & Mortar Establishments in Kahnawake

    Kahnawake is a Mohawk Indian Reservation in Canada. Due
    to the special status granted to Indian lands, many of them legally allowed
    to host gambling, which provided a good supplement to the local
    budget. Kahnawake Gaming Commission, responsible for the regulation in this area, was established in 1996, and within as little
    as 3 years it began to issue licenses for this type of business on the Internet.
    Being the pioneer of gaming industry niche, the jurisdiction has become one
    of the most well-known among phenomena of the kind.

    The Canadian KGC consists of three organizations assigned by Mohawk Council of Kahnawake.
    They are mandated to deal with all the regulation issues of online gambling, including licensing.
    A system of rules and standards that guides the commission is based on the experience of Australian colleagues.
    The basic principles of KGC are aimed at reduced to fair business conduction, transparency, data security and
    timely payouts.

    The Commission has developed the requirements, ensuring high reliability and excluding
    the possibility of fraud in online gambling business.
    When considering an application the agency examines the following aspects:

    the formal grounds for issuing the license
    the reliability and integrity of software
    the capital adequacy for timely payouts

    run your blog, however suppose you added something to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean Breakup Girl » Broken Heart Bob is
    kinda vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to grab people to open the links.

    everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your
    website a little bit more interesting.
