Happy Birthday to Ex

Dear Breakup Girl,

First off I love your page. It’s been a great help to me. Well, I broke up with my boyfriend in March (right after spring break). We really haven’t talked since then and I miss our friendship. Well his birthday is coming up in July and I don’t know if I should tell him Happy Birthday. Do I call him or do I send him a birthday card in the mail or do I even do anything at all? Would it be inappropiate for me to even do this at all? Will his family think less of me if I do or don’t? Please help me make my decision by the middle of July. What do I do?

— Wondering

Dear Wondering,

Actually, sending a birthday card sounds like a perfect way to make a small but nice move toward reconnecting platonically. I wouldn’t call, because if you haven’t talked at all, it might put him on the spot, and you don’t want to hang up the phone with an awkward echo in your ear.

About the card, though: don’t expect a response. I’m not saying he won’t give you one; I’m just saying don’t expect one. Or, to put it another way, don’t make the “success” of your venture contingent upon whether or not he calls you the minute he gets it to thank you for the card and lock of hair. You send it, it’s a nice thing to do, end of story. Oh, and forget about what his parents think, either way; God forbid they should be reading his mail or tallying his birthday correspondence. Finally, when you select the card, keep it simple and pleasant — do not make it MEAN anything — by following these basic guidelines: (1) no 2-layer cards with raised script and inspirational poetry, (2) no crass jokes, and (3) no Ziggy.

  2. I like it a lot! It actually reminds me a little of the Relativity, with some elements of the D’Deridex.Sigh… I wish that contest had been open to the international community. They could have had tons of truly epic designs.

  3. , end of story. And for the record: All of the articles about me in the mainstream media target me personally. They never try to disprove anything I write about Islam, mass immigration or the EU. Do you know why? Because they can't.

  5. what I was going to say then thumb that comment up. This is why written input boxes are always at bottom. They make you read the other comments.(Unless its to long like this page then most people including myself will just skip to the bottom.)Also I agree with what Jack said (about the stars) on March 31, 2010 3:55 PM

  6. Spending a lot of time in schools, I see many inspirational/motivational posters. And one of my all-time favorites is a tiny kitten holding tight, claws out to a branch in this big ‘ol tree; with the words “hang in there”Sometimes you feel as though you are the kitten hanging on by your claws, but have faith the fireman may be just around the corner…

  8. I like alot youtube, since I signed up twice, but, I've seen, the site has been redesigned very cool, nevertheless, users can browse videos everywhere, if they have DSL or cable, which I don't have, I have dialup. Everytime I enter here, the feature videos downloads, but, my browser(internet explorer)freezes. I can't afford to change internet provider, if you install a program to run..dialup users, I'll stay, otherwise, I'll never sign up again.

  9. A big thank you to Martin for a great talk and great follow-on discussion! For many of us, reading Empowering Your Sober Self was a huge recovery milestone, and it was nice to hear and meet the man behind the written words.

  10. Mabill disse:Realmente um belo avião, porém esses “gordos” tanques de combustível demonstram (acho)sua maior fraqueza (Autonomia), dos tres concorrentes do FX ele é o que esta mais prejudicado já que no GRIPEN este problema foi solucionado com o lançamento do NG, tornando a nova versão a de maior alcance dos 3 concorrentes; com o novo motor é o único pelo que sei com supercruiser; mas; vou torcer por estes belos RAFALES; apesar de ter achado o preço salgado espero que os franceses realizem melhorias corrigindo as deficiências deste excelente caça.

  11. I definitely would have had a hard time walking away from that sale! I think you did the right thing. I’m a coke zero girl through and through.

  12. Um, the fact he makes profits off this doesn’t tip you off that maybe he is just saying this shit to continue MAKING profit? Think logically for a second. There’s a reason light bulbs that last forever don’t exist. There wouldn’t be a demand for them if they did. The idea is the same here. Jones knows he is bullshitting. He RELIES on this fact to sell his crap to gullible people so that he can continue making money off them. Not difficult to see this scam.

  13. Codzienna medytacja nad pana zdjęciem nie przynosi pantryjocie sukcesu. Ale nieborak tego nie zrozumie. Najlepsze jest to ,że do latania nie potrzebujecie żadnej mewy, ona jest tam po to by dodawać wam szyku, jeszcze ciekawsze w tym porównaniu jest to, że pasażerowie tej mewy też gdzieś muszą załatwiać swe sprawy. q q q

  14. Goodness me you hit it on the head here. I am just a 2nd year student in Mech Engineering but boy oh boy is it hard to balance activities (and maintain a mediocre grade). When you find out how, be sure to tell the world!

  15. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days..

  16. there is no guaranty of getting final selection even if u clear the interview. u should be in merit list for final selection. after final selection ur score is imp to get posting at desired place. if u r on top, banks will consider ur preferred location for posting. i also heard that in some rural banks, promotions are given in initial days based on the marks u secured in entrance exam. but nationalised banks wont follow this rule.

  17. Én is dicsekednék. Sz…d le! :-)Egyébként én hasznosnak találom, hogy ilyeneket megmutatsz, mert legalább látom, hogy ilyen is létezik. Aztán ha nyerek a lottón, tudom, hogy kihez kell fordulnom a kérdéseimmel…. :-)És azt is tudod, hogy mibÅ‘l van? Egy kis darált kóláskupak, olajoshordó? 😛 Én egy kicsit félek az ilyen természetidegen színektÅ‘l. Tudom, hogy te sem vagy egy nagy "E-valahány" fogyasztó, de ezekben biztos vannak ilyen varázsszerek.
