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. Ach, wie erkenne ich mich da wieder. Die erste Woche ging für zigfachen Wechsel des Themes drauf und ich war nur am hinter dem Stoff herhecheln. Dabei dachte ich anfangs, da mach ich mir locker ne neue Homepage und hübsche meinen Ziegengeschichten-Blog auf. Was gabs statt dessen? Graue Haare! Aber auch Ergebnisse – leider noch fern von Perfektion, aber stolz bin ich trotzdem!Das wird schon noch was mit uns!

  2. Uh WE understand…why is it that no one in the House or Senate can stop him? He's breaking the law. Have him arrested. He's not different than any other American. He is NOT above the law.

  5. ad Protestant: „Většinu věcí ale Bůh prosazuje skrze lidi.“Ano, ale to je dogma. Tak to funguje vždycky, bez ohledu na nějaké modlitby. Ergo, modlitby jsou zbytečné.

  19. The lot of the submissive is to be restricted to “gravitational” attraction. Unable to demand anything directly of a Dominant, the sub must simply be vulnerable, exposed, hoping that the availability attracts the dominant, like blood to a shark, or a bare neck to a vampire.

  21. There are *so* many things lacking with that quote that I can’t imagine that is how Mr. Case actually feels about the nonprofit sector.It also doesn’t necessarily explain why a “hybrid” organization (Is that, like, a made up term?) would be any better at forecasting ROI.A VC colleague who sits on a venture philanthropy board has a favorite saying when he introduces himself: “I fund not-for-profits too, they just happen to be startups in the technology industry.”

  31. I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours today, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if
    all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Comment by Janice — April 23, 2017 @ 2:23 am

  32. obviously like your web site but you have to check the spelling on quite
    a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues
    and I to find it very troublesome to inform the truth on the other hand I’ll definitely come back again.
