Age: I told him I was 10 years younger

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:22 am

Saving face on November 30, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I met this guy in ICQ, didn’t expect to ever have real feelings, but we do. The thing is I sent him a picture of another person, a knockout! And told him I was 10 years younger than I am. I know I have to tell him the truth, but I just know our friendship will end. He really wants to meet and get to know each other in person. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

— Troubled in Oregon

Dear Troubled,

Oops. Yeah, you kind of do have to own up. And here’s the thing. If he doesn’t want to be friends (or more), I betcha it won’t be because you’re not that X-10 knockout. It would be because your pictures messed around with his feelings. So in order to save face, you’re going to have to speak the thousand words that that picture didn’t: tell him you sent it before those unexpected feelings became real. Now that the feelings are real, so too will you be.

And while you’re at it, ask yourself this: why didn’t you think the true you was young enough, cute enough, brave enough? Next time you meet an IC-QT, don’t send a snapshot until/unless you’re psyched to send the real one.

  1. Å»e przepadÅ‚o katolickie centrum w tym konkursie. Wyobraź sobie że konkurs na nauczanie religii w szkoÅ‚ach wygrywa organizacja gejów i lesbijek… To by byÅ‚o tak samo tylko w drugÄ… stronÄ™. Jak o seksie może nauczać organizacja żyjÄ…cych w czystoÅ›ci? Paradoks czy chichot rzeczywistoÅ›ci?

  3. Ray, as usual, you’re bang on. You’ve described exactly what I’ve been trying to accomplish in my own fiction and what I imagine many others are trying as well: writing what I want to read or writing what’s just not out there (yet). Too many times I’ve been left wanting more out of a novel that just sags with needless details that either amount to nothing or are weighed down by bad pacing. Great post.Filip Premrl´s last blog post ..Like? 0

  5. Hei! Jeg skryter så mye av deg at jeg glemmer å skrive kommentarer til deg. Hvorfra tar du alle dine ideer og ikke minst lyst til få med så mange på alt du finner på? Jeg tar av hatten!

  7. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.VA:F [1.6.5_908]please wait…VA:F [1.6.5_908](from 0 votes)

  8. Vegas is sinking bad, but the Reno/Tahoe (Nevada side) area is doing just fine. And they have actually closed a few casinos around there.There's a lot of big industrial parks in the Reno-Sparks region. FWIW.WV: crawk. The container the current administration is using to hold their, er, policies.

  11. I want to stand up and represent us straight white men who never went down the dark path of regressive politics. Growing up in the 60′s and coming of age in the post-Vietnam, post-Watergate 70′s played a role, knowing my hippie predecessors got tear-gassed in Chicago or lived in Canada instead of accepting a free trip to SE Asia, and being influenced by music and culture than ran counter to Leave It To Beaver America. Please don’t leave us out of the conversation, thanks.

  13. Ja ! FINGER WEG von solchen Offerten.Der Scheck hat einen Wert, der über dem Verkaufspreis liegt und wird zunächst vo Ihrer Bank gutgeschrieben. Sie sollen dann den Differenzbetrag schicken.Nach 6 Wochen platzt der Scheck mangels Deckung und die Bank belastet Ihr Konto. Sie bleiben dann auf dem Schaden sitzen.LGMathias

  15. How about the Whale editing the NZ Censored magazine, this one is a very far right fruit cake mag. Should suit the Whale just fine. Lies, propaganda and fear factor.

  16. moi je me souviens quand je suis passé à Orleans d’une bagarre entre deux automobilistes pour un cédez le passage non respecté, un a sorti un fusil de chasse de sa voiture et a tué l’autre ! j’étais sidéré sur le continent du non respect pour les piétons, il y a un nombre important de piétons écrasés.

  17. It’s been a long time since you posted… where are you now? Too bad you don’t have internet connection often. Enjoyed the pictures of the doe and baby racoons.

  18. I love a bundt cake and especially like that yours is not the “typical” dense sort of bundt. I love those two flavors and think this is the fluffiest, prettiest cake to pop out of a bundt pan!

  19. Wow, that guy has been working there for 20 years and doesn’t know what he can eat? That is kind of surprizing. He ate a meal full of carbs and it aggrivated his diabetes. I can barely believe it!!! When are some people going to take responsibility for their actions?

  20. In addition to this post about the Reading Room. I actually went out to the Nawarat Bridge where to investigate the Governor’s Mansion to see if in fact, it has been opened to the public as a museum or tourist attraction. It is not. The mansion seems to be closely monitored with security. There is an Tourist Information and Assistance desk at the front entrance before crossing over the bridge. That’s about all I got so far.

  25. “As for the ignore button…funny story about that. I’ve been suggesting one for a year. Those suggesting it now were the ones who hated the suggestion from me. Interesting.”Love the revisionist history.First off – there were plenty of other comments to ignore before you came around – you were not the first to suggest it.Second – people were so against the ignore feature that some went as far as researching how to implement it using WordPress and sent it to Grant (Adam, was that you?). The rest of us begged PD to activate it. Third – you do realize that if an ignore feature is implemented that you’ll be left talking to yourself, right?

  30. Unnskyld meg men fy søren så frekt. Fjerner bloggen fra min liste og syntes bokbloggene bør gjøre det samme for å vise at slikt ikke er akseptert i den norske bokblogsfæren.Ja, jeg henger litt etter i Google Readeren min.

  31. faut il vraiment que je vous le répète, ou votre arrogance vous met systématiquement dans l’opposition ??Je ne suis absolument pas COMPLOTISTE je l’ai dit plus bas lisez !! Cependant votre argument niaiseu souligne toute l’arrogance et la moquerie que vous octroyez gratuitement à tous sans même les lires ….
