Confused at 15

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:00 am

Needing to talk on August 10, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

First of all, I am only 15. Which might make my problem less significant, but I am going to go ahead and tell you anyway.

My boyfriend of 6 months (who is 17 years old) just broke up with me. Needless to say, my heart is shattered. The fact that he proposed to me makes it even worse. I think he broke up with me because other things became more important. I don’t know what to do. Shortly after we broke up I discovered that I was pregnant. I miscarried. But now I can’t seem to get in touch with him. My question is, should I tell him that I was pregnant? Also when I saw him one day shortly after the breakup he told me he still loved me but he wanted to wait till I turned sixteen before we got back together. I think that is an influence from his Mom. The thing is I still love him so much. I have had offers from other guys but I feel if I go out with some one else I am betraying him in some odd way. Why? I am so confused. I want to contact him but is it wrong to make contact with him before he even tries to get in touch with me? I feel like I can’t put this whole thing to rest unless I discuss my feelings with him in private. We haven’t had a discussion more than 5 minutes long in the whole time since we broke up.

I hope I didn’t confuse you too bad, Breakup Girl. Please help me!

Dear Confused,

Your problem is TOTALLY significant.

First of all, is your health okay? I assume you saw a doctor to make sure that your body is recovering okay from the miscarriage — about which I am terribly sorry. But on the off chance that you didn’t, and if you can’t tell an adult in your family, please check with a guidance counselor to find a clinic that you can visit. If this is a problem write to me and we’ll find something.

So yeah, as long as a doctor was aware of your pregnancy — and I’m really hoping a supportive friend or two were aware as well — I don’t see any reason for your ex-boyfriend to be. Not at this time, anyway. I’m not saying you should willfully conspire to hide things from him — things that are, arguably, his business. But for now, it’s for your own good. You feel awful enough already … let’s say you tell him, and you don’t get the kind, concerned, caring response you’d really like — well, you’ll feel even worse. If you rebuild a friendship, then someday, yeah, you could fill him in.

Still, it seems that there are plenty of other things you’ve not had the chance to share with him. I’d say write ’em down and mail them. Nice things, not mean things. Statements about how YOU feel, not questions or demands of him (such as “When are you coming back?”). I don’t really buy the 16-years-old thing (neither do you). So don’t count on a reunion, or even a response. But getting those feelings out might help the letting-go process.

As might dating other people — but I agree that you’re not ready yet. The breakup just happened — and you’ve gone through two big losses. Let me insist, though, that you are not betraying him if/when you do see someone else. It just feels like you are right now because, whether he is or not, you’re still attached. That bond will loosen up over time, I promise; it just doesn’t feel like that now. Especially if you work on tightening your ties with people — family, friends, superheroes — who know just how significant you truly are.

My Mum always found it amusing that I ended up loving Debbie Harry, because Debbie was one of her idols growing up. Mum actually got to meet her once – one of her boyfriends played in a band that supported her on an Australian tour!

  14. Nashonne – I did the first “Project Life” in 2009 (it was called Project 365 then) and I loved it! I love looking back at all the things that happened that year. This being my 40th birthday year, it would be great to look back and see the changes that come along with moving into a new decade.

  19. It’s hard to not want those “quiet, non-Nick Jr.” moments right now. And sometimes, I think we occasionally need to attempt to give ourselves those moments right now. But, in the long run, for me, it always seems that trying to make my moments “glass half-full” moments instead of “glass half-empty” moments – like your response about many moments later on when you miss the crazy-loud moments! – gives me the perspective to carry-on. Even when I DO forget

  29. I love your painting Lori. This scripture brings comfort to my heart. One of our sons has walked away from his relationship with God to pursue the world and his self. Though he has broken my heart I am on the mends and stand on Gods word and promises He gives so freely to us! This scripture speaks volumes to what we are going through right now. Our son is on the outside but God will surly open the door and welcome him back in in time!Thank you for posting this!Cherie

  30. A document was located by a freeper April 2010, it was posted on free republic. This site claimed to locate the document June 2010. Rxsid posted the thread. A freeper named patlin worked many hours doing research..much what she posted was pulled with no credit to her.She quit researching. We lost a valuable asset.We claim no fame or money in this effort..but this site seeks fame and fortune thur the efforts of others. We seek no battle…just tone down the sightly big red letters.

  32. I am definitely going to try and listen in on this one. I have been interested in the “Gluten Free Bread Baking Classics for the Bread Machine” cookbook for a while, on my Amazon wish list since LAST Christmas. Therefore after seeing it on this guests website would love to get more info on this author : ) The information on healthy gluten free eating instead of just more info on how to make really bad for you GF desserts that taste just like their really bad for you counterparts also sounds like something I definitely need!

  37. I agree with twowords that you should paint the main family rooms…but don’t use anything remotely grey. Off white is your best bet. As for it costing $ $ $ you will reap a return on the investment. Other ideas are to move out any excess furniture so the rooms look larger. Remove any family pictures, as that marks it as your home and not the potential buyers. Just think – paint = extra money in your pocket. Paint = extra money in your pocket. Paint = extra money Hope this helps

  38. E cmq ha ragione Dario: non è un organigramma. Al più potrebbe assomigliare (informatici, ho scritto "potrebbwe assomigliare" non che ci assomigli!) a uno schema a blocchi. Però, seguendo questa logica, sembrerebbe che tutto parta da "SMOM" e finisca a "Media" e "Magistratura". Per il resto un bel circolo chiuso. Mica sarà un piano per auto-avvelenarsi da parte di tutti gli attori in gioco? Un bel suicidio di massa!

  44. I have seen lots of anti-global warming videos (either by or supporting leading authorities in this area (even people high up in greenpeace dont support human-caused global warming)) and if you go back millions of years we are actually a lot colder than the earth has been, the temperature tends to go Warm, then Ice Age, than warm then ice age (note these changes happen over many years). Al Gore is just trying to get votes by pretending to care.

  45. Did not know him, but am truly saddened — his work, esp in this day & age, was truly spectacular. Condolences to all who knew him. Not to be too catty, but why couldn’t it be a writer on “Two and a Half Men”? Okay, that was bad (and so is the show).
