Arrested development

Classic LetterA naughty boy from January 5, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

My boyfriend and I had our six-month anniversary on Christmas and of course I got him a present, but he never got me one. He says he loves me and that he just has to go over and pick up the present, but it’s been a while since Christmas. He’s on house arrest right now so I understand that he can’t go out, but actually, he’s been out many times already. He says he loves me, but he could have at least gotten me a little something, right? What does that tell me about him?

— Cristina

Dear Cristina,

Among the excuses that Breakup Girl has heard for being late with a gift, being under house arrest is actually one of the most convincing. Then again, the 90s have brought us many ways to shop without ever leaving home: catalogs, QVC, online stores. Also, the invention of food has long allowed boyfriends under house arrest to prepare dinner in their own homes, however primitive, for their girlfriends. So I’m not saying this guy owes you some material item of some prescribed value. But he does owe you some gesture that indicates your value to him. In that sense, I’d say you need to find someone with a shopping list longer than his criminal record.

  11. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing
    a blog post or vice-versa? My blog addresses a
    lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

  12. Admiring the time and energy you put into your website and detailed information you present.

    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that
    isn’t the same outdated rehashed material. Fantastic read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  13. Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest
    authoring on other sites? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss
    and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know
    my visitors would appreciate your work. If
    you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me
    an email.

  14. Hi there! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount work?
    I’m completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
    own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or
    tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  16. No matter if some one searches for his essential thing, therefore he/she wishes to be available that
    in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

  17. I used to be suggested this website through my cousin. I am no longer sure whether this
    post is written by way of him as no one else
    realize such unique about my trouble. You’re incredible!

  18. Aw, this was an extremely good post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a
    very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

  19. Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Cheers!
