True Confessions: ‘Tis but our play that is my enemy!

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

truecircleDear Breakup Girl,

I’m a college freshman currently dating a wonderful guy that I met the first week of school. As of right now, everything’s great. The only problem is this: he’s head-over-heels in love with me (a terrible problem, I know), and I’m not very commited at all. I like him and I don’t necessarily want to see other people, but I don’t want to lock myself into a long-term relationship so soon. Ideally, I would keep seeing him for a while longer, and if I didn’t start feeling something more– something that would make it worth a serious commitment– then we would break up.

Here’s the rub: we got cast opposite each other in a production of “Romeo and Juliet.” The on-stage chemistry between us is amazing. If I were to break up with him, the show would suffer tremendously. Do I have any choice but to wait until after the play is over? I hate being in a relationship that is continuing by default when it would really be better that it ended. But I can’t end this without hurting both my boyfriend and the play. ????

Dear Squirmy,

Are you sure you’re not channeling some episode of Blossom? God, this scenario would be totally cute if you … liked him.

Anyway, here’s the thing: you can’t end this without hurting the boyfriend. That’s a given, play or no play. But as far as the show is concerned, are we talking a few weeks, or several months? A few weeks, you can legitimately stall — after all , the rehearsal schedule has no doubt cut into your social life, so there’s your motivation (excuse?) for seeing each other a bit less. But as for longer than that, well, N OT doing anything, if it’s driving you nuts, may also interfere with your on-stage chemistry. If you really can’t stand the, um, playacting, you may have to go ahead and do the deed. I think the play will probably be fine. You two are older (wiser?) than those two kids you’re playing, anyway, and remember: the drama is all about wanting what you can’t have.
