Ex-Mas Party

Classic LetterMore fruitcake from December 29, 1997

Dear Breakup Girl,

I thought my girlfriend broke up with me last week. She said, “I’m not comfortable with the term ‘boyfriend and girlfriend.'” I was really bummed, it being right before Christmas and all. Then when I called her to cancel plans for a party arranged a long time ago, she said she still wanted to date…What is going on?

— John

Dear John,

What is going on is that girlfriend wants to have her fruitcake and eat it too. Apparently, the term she’s really not comfortable with is “alone.” She may not want to be committed to you, but she also doesn’t want to go stag to that party. Now, some couples (or semi-couples) do manage to have it both ways, but only when a “casual” thing is officially okay with both of them. If that doesn’t work for you, tell her you’re not comfortable with the term “just dating.” Either way, get to the bottom of it, communicate, straighten things out. As you now know, the most uncomfortable terms are “uncertain.”

  1. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established
    blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    With thanks

  3. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer
    but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for
    first-time blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  5. An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you need to publish more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but typically
    folks don’t talk about these issues. To the next!

    Best wishes!!

  12. When someone writes an article he/she retains the thought of a user
    in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it. Thus that’s
    why this piece of writing is amazing. Thanks!

  24. I was wondering if you ever considered changing
    the layout of 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 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  27. Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you
    know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my
    apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might
    be able to correct this issue. If you have
    any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!
