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. Can’t argue Sister! I’m passionate about reading & drinking wine. I’ll happily do both – for free – for the rest of my life. For a while, I guess I was passionate about no longer working for jerky bosses because I quit to start my own biz. No, I’m not a Professional Wine Drinker . . . have to go do some research on that.

  7. We really dont need bank accounts.Lets use cash only. That will reduce banks deposits and put them out of business.IF banks dont lend, than what are they there for?…..money laundering?or Goldman Sacks wannabes.?We need mega credit unions to compete with banks, and lend to worthy borrowers……COMPETITION COMPETITIONThe american way….

  12. Wait, I cannot fathom it being so straightforward.

    Comment by http://www.findtopinsurer.top/ — August 26, 2016 @ 9:32 am

  13. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

  15. Najsłodsze święta, to wspólne biesiadowanie i radosne kolędowanie. Dzieci biegające przy choince, które cieszą się prezentami i słodkimi łakociami. Bo, na niclukrowane ciasteczka, pralinki i przepyszne rodzynki, gdy nie mamy z kim świętować i kogo w te święta obdarować.

  19. I don't like the new homepage but I guess I could get used to it… But the grey background is extremely ugly and depressing, and the channel pages are just awful.

  23. Dan, you’ve gone quiet on Matra? As i reiterate, A12 has no doubt already flowed however not since the cementation works i presume? Would that be a fair statement?

  24. Your website has to be the electronic Swiss army knife for this topic.

  25. What is unusual about our pets is that they all live with us full-time in our 40-foot tour bus home. 1 dog, 2 cats, and 4 tropical fish. Dogs and cats are pretty common in RVs, but I've never met anyone else with fishes. They are perfectly happy in their 5 gallon acrylic tank, and have been to more states than 90% of the humans in the US. So I supposed that makes them well-traveled and sophisticated fish.

  27. Que eu saiba ja no tempo da antiga direccao se recusavam a aceitar animais nos ultimos tempos!Pelos menos eu contactei a pedir ajuda e nada puderam fazer…tive que me desenrrascar…Mas esta nova direccao faz tantas campanhas e realmente pouco mais faz…Se antes com menos conseguiam alimentar animais que tem a carga e esterilizar…agora de facto não sei que se passa…

  28. about the Left and the Islamists not deserving the benefits of civilization makes sense.But what the Founding Fathers said about people having freedom of speech and freedom (regardless of ideology) until convicted of an actual crime makes sense as well.How do you reconcile this contradiction?

  29. Just loved this post. Gorgeous writing and thinking. Captured the internal conflicts and the problematic nature of even using the term "choice".Thanks so much,Michelle

  33. I think we should harvest teenagers to suck out the chemical in them that allows them to eat what the hell ever they want… lay around all day and not gain a damn thing.

  34. What are you indicating, man? I recognize everyones got their own opinion, but really? Listen, your website is awesome. I like the work you put into it, especially with the vids and the pics. But, come on. Theres gotta be a better way to say this, a way that doesnt make it seem like most people here is stupid!

  35. disappointed that we could not get a free sample first but we ordered anyway…Choffy (after our first taste) is not something that we would drink all the time but more as a dessert. It is tasty and we are going to try to brew it with milk.We are “Postum” drop outs sorry to say Kraft does not make it anymore so we were looking for a substitute.

  40. Nice to see you back in the gym man.Funny you say that Kev, for chest I’ve been doing exactly that these last few weeks, 4 x 4 heavy training, following your 405 Bench Quest… I’ve been adding weight every workout. IT works.

    Comment by http://www.edmeds.men/ — August 28, 2016 @ 10:05 am

  41. Hope the trouble doesn't come any closer!! thanks for your lovely comment on my last post, I've had trouble with VB (worsening tantrums) these past 2 weeks and am still woefully behind!

    Comment by http://www.edmedsshopping.men/ — August 28, 2016 @ 11:17 am

  42. After studying a few of the weblog posts on your website now, and I actually like your manner of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website record and will probably be checking back soon. Pls try my website online as nicely and let me know what you think.

    Comment by http://www.buymedications.pw/ — August 28, 2016 @ 12:08 pm

  43. Rev (42)-In that case, your agent was probably shooting you straight. In a multiple offer (or possible multiple offer) situation, the seller sometimes won’t reveal a lot about the other offers. This leaves a nervous buyer to fill in the blanks for himself and often leads him to panic and bid up, as the fear-of-loss instinct kicks in.

  44. I’ve never been outside the US except for a few hours in Tijuana in 1980 a little over two weeks combined in two trips to Montreal. Nonetheless, if I were offered a choice between a week anywhere and a week looking at the Comics Archive at OSU, I’d pick Columbus in a heartbeat.It’s good to know they have great food, too.

  45. Thanks for that, I’ve just fixed the typo!It’s not a reference pointer in the sense that all variables and functions from _level0 are copied into the new level but from that point on they function independently.
