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. Excellent site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any message boards
    that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!

  2. I think everything typed made a bunch of sense. However, consider this, what if you
    composed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid., but what if you added something that makes people desire
    more? I mean Breakup Girl » Age: I told him I was 10 years younger
    is kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write post headlines to grab people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a
    little livelier.

    I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking
    forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  16. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. However imagine if you added some
    great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this
    site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.

    Very good blog!

  20. Right now it seems like WordPress is the best blogging platform out there
    right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted
