Age: I told him I was 10 years younger

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.

  7. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  10. My Spanish is negligible (as evidenced by the fact that I had to look up my obscenity of choice), and pop culture led me astray: I shall fix the ‘ay’! On the back of ‘trods’ and ‘Muerto’, we can at least infer that neither English nor Spanish was Mr Tevos’ first language.

  11. Bryan:Thank you for your kind words. Im sure it will get easier with time. It is just so hard to beleive that MY dad is gone…. this happened to everyone else not me. Im a mess right now and places like this help. My parents have been divorced for over 30 years so it is really up to me to take care of his things. My mom had a heart attack during this time as well. I just need some time away from it all. Again, thanks for your kind words.
