Picture This!

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:30 am

Classic LetterA photo opportunity on December 29, 1997

Dear Breakup Girl,

I really like this guy and I’ve asked him out before but he never answered. Other people have told him that he should go out with me but he never gave them an answer either. I am the only one of his friends who received a large picture of him for Christmas; everyone else got wallet-size. I feel all special — but I don’t really know how he feels and I don’t want to ask him out again because I don’t want to lose him as a friend. Please help!

Dear Nichole,

Breakup Girl is unfamiliar with — but intrigued by — this practice of giving photos of yourself as Christmas presents to people who are not your grandparents. I’ll trust you when you say that it’s possible to measure someone’s feelings for you in terms of surface area. But since he has not leapt at several obvious chances to go out with you, Breakup Girl wonders, gently, if the thousand or so words that that picture is speaking might go something like, “I know you like me but I really just think of you as a friend. I feel bad about that — and I do think you’re special — so I want to make it up to you and show you that by giving you a larger photo than everyone else.” See? So let him know you appreciate the photograph (don’t tell him it’s under your pillow), and focus on the friendship. If something more is meant to develop, it will.

    be right now. You are very intelligent. You know thus significantly on the subject of this topic, made me personally
    consider it from a lot of various angles. Its like men and women are not interested except it’s something to do with Girl gaga!

  34. Today, I went to the beach front with my
    children. 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 placed 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!

  35. Hello, Neat post. There is an issue together
    with your web site in internet explorer, could test this?
    IE still is the marketplace leader and a huge element of other folks will omit your fantastic writing due to this problem.

  36. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little research on this.
    And he actually ordered me lunch because I discovered it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this matter here on your
    internet site.
