Taking sides

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 8:34 am

Classic LetterBreaking up is hard on everybody, from January 19, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I am a happily married woman (and no — I’m not asking for advice on how to change that situation). However, close friends of ours (a couple) had a nasty breakup earlier this fall. I was initially close friends with the woman, but my husband and I also became close to the man, think he’s a lot of fun and intend to continue our friendship with him. So far, nothing’s been a problem with this — we just don’t talk about his ex-girlfriend. Do I need to tell the woman that we are continuing our friendship with the man?

— Don’t Want to Be in the Middle

Dear Don’t Want to Be in the Middle,

Nah. Making a big We Think You Should Know proclamation makes the situation more serious than it need be. Since you’re writing out of sincere concern in the first place, you’re obviously not going to commit some gaffe like, say, inviting them both to the same Packers party. Other than that, their vibe is their business, not yours. And in fact, one of the nicer by-products of breakups, actually, are the other friendships that sometimes survive them.

Now, can you give the rest of us some advice on how to be a happily married woman?

Breakup Girl

  2. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and
    visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
    Excellent Blog!

  9. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
    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 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a
    difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    ideas or hints? Thank you!
