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. Tämä on mulla tämmöistä tuuliviiriaikaa, jos on hieno talvipäivä niin nautin täysillä ulkoilusta ja lasten kanssa puuhailusta pihalla, valokuvaamisesta… mut nää tuiskupäivät on tylsiä ja silloin tulee se kevään haiku!

  6. I have seen a great deal of useful points on your web site about computers. However, I have the judgment that laptops are still not nearly powerful more than enough to be a option if you usually do jobs that require many power, including video modifying. But for net surfing, microsoft word processing, and quite a few other common computer functions they are okay, provided you don’t mind small screen size. Appreciate sharing your opinions.

  7. Great article. It’s very unfortunate that over the last years, the travel industry has had to tackle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, bird flu virus, swine flu, and the first ever real global recession. Through everything the industry has proven to be strong, resilient and also dynamic, finding new ways to deal with difficulty. There are often fresh complications and opportunity to which the industry must once again adapt and answer.

  13. Josep Maria, vaig anar ahir a l'acte i vaig quedar impressionada de la solidesa i alhora senzillesa del projecte. Vaig tenir ben bé la impressió de que ja som (afortunadament) en una altra galaxia de relacions entre entitats socials i sector empresarial.

  14. Did you read the rules and regulations before you started to troll? They were published nearly a year in advance. All past alumni are invited. They chose not to compete. Is the organizer supposed to tie them up and drag them to the event? Geeesh!

You like, like ma are hard on phones  I know people who have just dropped their iPhone from 3-4 ft. and destroyed the glass!  I’ve never really been a apple fan (Yes I’m admitting it) but they have managed to keep this cracked glass issue a non issue.  Pretty impressive if you ask me considering all of my iPhone owning friends have had to replace the glass at least 2 times a year!

  19. Many analysts lack the neutrality to be truly objective, even fewer have lived in the industry of which they comment on for more than a few years.Burnt Oak is and has been at the heart of the industry for 25 years.We call as it is!

  20. Wilson and Canadian sense.. the bloggg voices of the reformatorts, combined with rumour monger Taylor. I think Iggy has full control of his caucus and has a plan to protect the MP's who feel their ridings are in danger.Also the very fact jim Flatulence and other cabinet ministers are out flapping their gums with idle threats tells me the reformatorts are now in desperate territory.

  23. Sonia, your post makes me home sick.. i love the old style Hainanese Kopi O and the charcoal-toasted bread, i think most of the coffee shop makes the bread by toaster, but i prefer the charcoal style. And the nasi lemak, i like the mild version because i can't really eat too spicy..^_^ thanks for your sharing..

  28. I managed most of this apart from the SE Corner which was left very bare – so thanks to Bufo for the enlightenment and Elkamere for the puzzle.One of the rare occasions that I have solved a Spooner clue.Still baffled by 1a – is it something to do with making a “C” into a “D”? Completely beyond me – ready to give myself a good kicking.

  30. comentou em 2 de dezembro de 2009 às 15:32. VAmos lá. O NW é para peles mais rosadas o NC é para peles mais amareladas. Gosto de passar o corretivo sempre depois da base. Porque a base já corrige muita coisa e dá pra usar o corretivo só em poucos lugares e mais suavemente, assim a pele fica mais leve e mais natural.Bjsss!!!

  31. Liberdade é aldrabar com regras. Não é usar dinheiro para comprar o que os outros não compram e chamar a isso "regras universitárias".V. defende o estelionato. Defende o conto do vigário. O caso de entrarem universidades ou cursos de trampa é secundário.A questão cretinha é defender a vigarice em nome da "elite" , do status ou do poder do dinheiro.De resto, eu defendo piratas. Mas um pirata afunda os barcos, não os compra.

  37. Et pour ceux qui croient qu’un dieu existe, pourquoi, Jesus ayant voulu vivre parmi les pauvres, ces établissements favorisent-ils l’évitement social (et se débarrassent des élèves quand ceux-ci posent des problèmes – c’est du vécu) ?

  39. "Paradephilosoph" ist auch gut. "Fernsehphilosoph" war meine Erfindung :-)Er besticht weniger mit großer Litteratur wie Nietzsche oder mit Klassifizierungen wie Kant, sondern mit Äußerungen wider den Mainstream. Und das ist heute schon viel.
